Kyle + Jess had a beautiful wedding in a private estate in Temecula. Kyle’s sister is one of my best friends and when they asked James and I to photograph their wedding we were thrilled! The Cochrans are a wonderful family and adding Jess to the family makes them even more incredible! Jess wore her mother’s dress which was originally made by her grandma, and then her mother sewed 10,000 beads onto it for Jess’ wedding! Such an amazing labor of love, and Jess looked absolutely stunning!! Kyle has great style too, and with his polkadot bowtie and the groomsmen in ascots, they all looked fantastic!! They had a gorgeous ceremony that overlooked the valley,  a lively and hilarious bridal party, and they all danced the night away with friends and family! So excited for these two! Congrats Kyle + Jess!

Nick + Ambra are a cute, loving, and playful couple! James and I had an amazing time getting to know them during their engagement session in Santa Barbara! The day we did their engagement session just happened to be a gorgeous sunset which is always a bonus! We were so thankful for such a perfect backdrop and an amazing couple! We had a blast with these guys and we can’t wait to photograph their wedding this spring!

Kaleb planned such a a beautiful and special proposal!! He proposed at their first date spot in Ventura at sunset with an antique ring in a stunning music box!! How cool is that!?! Plus Nicole had one of the most incredible reactions we have ever seen!!! She ran away screaming “no” because she was so surprised, and then she walked back to Kaleb and said yes, of course! Then a few close friends who were hiding in the bushes came running out to say congrats!! We are SO excited for these two to tie the knot, and we couldn’t be happier!!!

On December 12th, Jake took his Jenny on a Christmas light tour through Starlight Circle, where every house goes all out for Christmas! As they were slowly passing this house the garage door opened with a sign that read “MARRY ME JENNY?” and their parents and grandparents were next to the sign!! Jenny said YES and then turned to see 25 of their friends and family running toward them screaming congrats!! It was such a beautiful moment and James and I absolutely loved photographing it!! So excited for these two to tie the knot!! 000

Something that made the night even more special was that James and I went home right after the proposal and edited all the images and then showed up at their engagement party 90 minutes later with all of their images in a Pass gallery! As they told their proposal story they showed our photos on our iPad to their friends and family!! So fun!! Here is a link to their gallery: http://jessicafairchild.pass.us/kalebandnic/
