Oh what a fun way to start off February with a classic wedding at Calamogis Ranch! It was a wonderful celebration at one of our favorite venues, and it felt like summer!
Kenny and Rachel had their ceremony under a hundred year old oak tree covered in flowers and cascading lights. Oh what a dream!! As we were photographing the toasts we watched Kenny place his hand on his bride’s chair and pull her as close as he could to put his arm around her, and Rachel leaned her head against his shoulder and just took it all in. What a beautiful love they have for each other and what a wonderful moment to remember! Congrats Kenny & Rachel!

We are so excited to kick off our 2016 wedding season with this gorgeous couple at one of our all time favorite venues! This was our first wedding of the year and it did not dissapoint!
 
Matthew and Amy have the type of love you dream about! They are one of a kind, and when you see the way they look at each other you can’t help but smile. The first time we met was in downtown LA for their engagment shoot and and as we strolled across the 1st street bridge and through the LACMA and got to know them we realized they have incredible taste and are classy to the core, and we couldn’t wait for their wedding!
 
When the day came for their wedding we couldn’t wait to see everything come together! From Amy’s gorgeous dress (which reminded Jess of her wedding dress), to their candlelit ceremony in a wine cave (so dreamy), to the grand exit in a classic Rolls Royce (which was the EXACT get away car we had at our wedding), the day was full of classy romance and we are thrilled to share it with you!!

About a year ago we ran into Chris while shopping in Santa Barbara and he told us all about Holly! He told us how wonderful she is, and how he knew she was the one and he was preparing to propose soon! We were thrilled and couldn’t wait to see how he would ask. Chris always has creative ideas and his proposal plan was nothing short of epic! He proposed while on a hot air balloon ride, and got the whole thing on video, talk about dreamy?!  Chris + Holly are such a cute couple, and their wedding was beautiful and filled with vintage classic details! Just wait till you see her dress, it’s gorgeous! We are so excited to share a few from their special day!

Moments like this are part of the reason we love wedding photography! In lieu of a bouquet toss Holly had an anniversary dance. Knowing her grandparents would win, she gave her bouquet to her grandma at the end of the dance! As we saw their embrace we started to get teary eyed. This was taken right as she gave her the bouquet, and you can see the love on their faces! Hugs from grandma are always the best, and moments like this will continue to be told told for generations to come!

We are thrilled to share this engagement session! Chris and Sadie are high school sweethearts, and they are are so cute! They have been together for ten years and through high school, college, and long distance they grew stronger and more in love! When Sadie told us she wanted to do their engagement shoot in the city where where they first met, we fell in love with the idea! James and I explored Claremont before the shoot and we couldn’t believe how much it reminded us of the east coast, with brick buildings, gorgeous architecture, and beautiful trees! At one point we even had them dance in the middle of the road because it was breathtaking and the street was empty! We had a blast with these two and we can’t wait for their wedding next year!

These two are so cute! Eddie and Maggie met at the beginning of freshman year at UCSB and they’ve been best friends ever since! Everytime James and I get to photograph a couple who are best friends with each other, we are thrilled! It was a joy to watch them laugh with each other throughout the shoot, and we are so excited for their wedding in Spring! Also, I’m obsessed with her yellow diamond, well done Eddie!

We met Sabrina and her mother a year ago, and as we heard the plans and details for the wedding day we couldn’t stop smiling! We listened as she told us of her ideas for a fall wedding at a gorgeous Villa in the hills overlooking all of Santa Barbara, and we started dreaming of their special day. October couldn’t come soon enough! When the day arrived it was everything we could have imagined and better! The venue was a dream come true, with a spectacular view, and gorgeous backdrops everywhere we turned! When we walked into the room where the girls were getting ready and saw Sabrina’s details, we thought we were in heaven! Marc Jacobs ivory and navy heels, j’adore perfume, and a stunning couture gown by Amsale! This bride has some serious style! (James and I both told said “I’m obsessed with her dress” at least a half a dozen times!) Then the florals arrived, and La Fleur du Jour perfectly crafted the bouquets! They were a gorgeous mix of fall colors, and they even had red and orange leaves mixed in! Just when we thought the day couldn’t be any more photogenic, six oversized balloons arrived in gold and wine colors! From beginning to end, the day was full of celebration, and capturing their day was a dream!

Ron and Sabrina, your kindness overflows onto everyone you meet. From the second we saw you together we experienced the  beautiful love you have for each other! James and I smiled as we photographed your first look, and we loved how you continued to bring each other joy as the day passed. We had a fantastic time photographing your incredible wedding and we are so excited to share a few favorites of your day!
