Boy has it been quite a while. Although we had been sharing some work we had been doing these several months, we hadn’t shared the perfect little piece of work we had created. Erik and I are so thrilled to introduce you our new addition – Clover Motta!

She was born on February 11, 2014 at 2:31AM.

This was her first photo!

Hey Internet-

It’s been a while that I blog about US, Ari + Erik, duh! We’ve been working so hard the past couple weekends that we forgot what it was to enjoy ourselves. Swaying side to side while shooting your weddings is great and all but it was nice to have an A+E weekend getaway. We visited our friends Brooke + Scott in Virginia and it was so much fun. Boat ride, lots of laughs, ate a little too much and tons of Vine’ing. Yep, we are on a new social media – Vine. Ha! If you are on vine, follow us @erikmotta + @arizapata. Anyhow, thought we’d share one of my fav photos ever taken by Scott.

How fun is this photo? By far my favorite photo of us ever!

Snapshots + lots of lovin’




Love this one too, and him!




So excited about all the weddings and engagement sessions we have been documenting … 2013 is already off to a great year!
