Billy and Kelly had a beautiful intimate wedding on a perfect day in January. They are a great example of “when you know, you know.” The first time they met they both knew there was something special, and after just 6 dates Billy asked Kelly to marry him!! After seeing them interact on their engagement shoot, it is clear they are perfect for each other, and they’re so cute together!! James and I had a wonderful time photographing their wedding, and we can’t wait to see the love between them grow and grow!

One of my favorite questions to ask couples is how they met. Jason and Dana have an amazing story! Dana was a student in Jason’s AP English class in Hong Kong 6 years ago. They had a normal teacher to student relationship, but Dana had such an impact on Jason he wrote a book about her without telling her till years later!! After Dana graduated she contacted Jason because he had been on her heart, and when they met up they talked for hours, and they started a friendship that deepened every time they talked. They would write emails, text, talk on the phone and skype for hours and hours, and they began falling for each other. Jason came out to LA to visit Dana and after a wonderful evening together and a kiss on the beach in Malibu, they were officially a couple. Jason moved out to LA a year later and it wasn’t long before he proposed!!!

I remember Dana telling me about Jason right when they started dating. She said “Jess, he’s the one and I’ll be contacting you in a little bit about our wedding.” She was right, and I am SO glad I got to photograph their wedding! When we did their engagement shoot a few months back, I asked when they first said “I love you” and Jason said the sweetest thing. He said “well I’ve loved her for 6 years, but we told each other a few years back.” Jason has loved Dana for years and it is incredible to see how their love for each other has grown over time. I can’t wait to see their love continue to grow forever!

Mike and Meredith are so fun, and their wedding was beautiful! Mike, the groom, made all the bouquets the morning of the wedding AND he surprised the Meredith with a beautiful new wedding ring! She was completely surprised, way to go Mike!! Meredith looked absolutely stunning, and she had TWO wedding dresses, so she switched dresses throughout the day! How fun is that?!?
They are an amazing couple, and have a fun, real, and playful love for each other! Mike and Meredith, it was an honor to photograph your wedding, and James and I wish you the best!

Also, special thanks to Kim of Toast Santa Barbara for helping coordinate the day and make the details look their best!

Jordan and Elisse are undeniably perfect for each other. They are best friends, and have a beautiful and honest selfless love for each other that inspires everyone they meet. Their wedding was spectacular and looked straight out of a dream! Elisse’s dress was one of the most unique and beautiful dresses I’ve ever photographed, and the venue (Oaji Valley Inn) was gorgeous! And to top it all off their bridal party was so playful and so much fun! It was an unforgettable wedding with fantastic details and an amazing couple. James Wittmayer and I loved every moment of the day! Thank you Jordan and Elisse for letting us capture your love story! We love you!

Max and Chelsea are two of the most wonderful, genuine and loving people I have ever met!

Their love for each other is so honest and playful, and they draw people to them like magnets! After spending a few minutes with them you are instantly filled with joy and laughter. Their love for each other is contagious, and James and I absolutely LOVED photographing their wedding! It took place at Camarillo Ranch and it was gorgeous! After photographing their proposal a few months ago, it was incredible to photograph the wedding so we could tell the whole story! SO excited to share these images with you!

I just had to start it off with my favorite image of the day. Flying children are always a good idea:

You know the term, instant friends? That’s exactly how it was with Scott and Jeana! They booked me without meeting me or even talking to me on the phone, and the first time we met was their engagement shoot and James and I INSTANTLY loved them! They have such an honest and playful love for each other, and as you can see in the photos, they absolutely ADORE each other! They have fairly ordinary jobs, Scott is a banker and Jeana is a nurse, but their love is anything but ordinary, it is extraordinary! They met at a wedding where she was a bridesmaid and he was a groomsmen…..and they hit it off and before long Scott moved out to California, proposed, and now they’re hitched! Their story is straight out of a book, and their wedding was gorgeous and a true fairytale! Scott and Jeana, thank you for letting James and I capture your day, we love you dearly! 427_10201136231581468_1856911193_n 1127_10201136230101431_1425283458_n 11487_10201136236741597_1809673281_n 545888_10201136232781498_1546696475_n 564397_10201136232301486_1695917916_n 972353_10201136234101531_419452017_n 998791_10201136236021579_1447843470_n 998943_10201136234621544_1989013320_n 1000573_10201136234061530_306019479_n 1001578_10201136230341437_164946137_n 1016223_10201136230301436_1371579035_n 1150945_10201136229741422_1366491005_n 1233473_10201136231381463_1130491123_n 1235156_10201136232261485_26783722_n 1236438_10201136236301586_1814384433_n 1237753_10201136229661420_1910040498_n 1237784_10201136234901551_1610656798_n 1238778_10201136235301561_1098400107_n
