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 Jess wore her mother’s dress which was originally made by her grandma, and then her mother sewed 10,000 beads onto it for Jess’ wedding!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!
Kyle gave his groomsmen an Irish Carbomb kit!
One of my favorite first looks:
Kyle’s reaction is priceless!
We had way too much fun with this bridal party:
Hilarious groomsmen moments:
Still amazed at this breathtaking sunset!
The groom did a backflip on the dance floor!
The final photo of our last wedding of the year! What a wonderful year it has been!! So many amazing couples, families and weddings! We are so excited to finish off the year with Kyle + Jess’ wedding!!
And here is another sneak peek of their gorgeous wedding in Temecula Valley Wine Country!
Words cannot describe how much James and I love this couple! They are kind and genuine and two of the most incredible people I have ever met!! And the fact that the bride is James’ cousin just makes them even cooler!!!! As moots you know, James and I absolutely love to travel so when we found out that Seve + Brooke were getting married in Colorado we were so excited!! We flew in a few days early and and we had such an amazing time adventuring around Denver and finding some of the prettiest places for photos!! Their wedding took place on November 8th at The Terrace Gardens, and it was breathtakingly beautiful, and the light was unreal! They did a first look, and it was one of my top favorite first looks ever, because Seve’s reaction was priceless! Seve + brooke, thank you for letting us capture your amazing wedding! We love you both so much!

My heart is so happy and so full! DJ and Ali are two of my favorite humans and closest friends and they are perfect for each other!!! I have known both of them for years, and got to watch them fall in love, and it has been such an incredible journey!!! I had the pleasure of being a bridesmaid in their wedding, and it was so fun!!! My dear friend Montana Dennis was their photographer, and when Montana asked me to second shoot their portraits with him my heart was doing cartwheels with happiness!!!!!! Photography is so much a part of who I am I couldn’t resist not take photos, especially of two people I love and cherish so much!!! Montana is a fantastic photographer, and I am so honored he asked me to second shoot!! We had a blast walking around the amazing Grassini winery and vineyard, and found some amazing light!!! I am so excited to share these with you!! So without further ado, here are a few photos from my perspective of being a bridesmaid and second shooter! Yay!
James took these next two images, because I was standing up there as a bridesmaid!!
We are so excited to have Jared + Emily’s Summer Soirée featured on Style Me Pretty today!! Yay!

Joey + Chelsea are an amazing couple, and their wedding was incredible! They got married at The Santa Barbara Club (which is one of my new favorite venues), and then we walked over to the Santa Barbara Court House for some epic golden light photos!! The SB Club has an amazing historical vibe and there were so many amazing old books for photos!! I was in creative heaven!! The SB Court house is always pretty, and it was so fun to have Joey dip Chelsea in the middle of State Street while we were crossing! So dreamy and so fun! Something that I loved about their wedding day is they included their 3 month old son Kaz into the ceremony! Joey held him as he walked down the isle, and they both held him as they walked back up as husband and wife! It brought everyone to tears to see how much they love their son and how important it was to them to have him be a part of their wedding day!! Here are a few from their beautiful day! Congrats Joey + Chelsea + Kaz!
A beautiful and emotional first look:
Ken + Christy Blum flew from Switzerland to California to have their wedding at a beautiful private beach in Santa Barbara followed by a reception at La Cumbre Country Club! It was a perfect sunny day, with amazing light, and so many lovely guests! Since the bride had to fly back home she decided to have shell bouquets instead of flowers, how fun is that?? The bride is a graphic designer and designed all the invites and ceremony programs, and she also had her bridesmaids wear a clear version of the “Heart of the Ocean” necklace in Titanic because she loved that movie so much! I always love when the bride and groom have unique details! It was a beautiful wedding with lovely details and amazing moments! Congrats Ken + Christy!
Mike + Nani are two of the coolest humans I have ever met! They have such a sweet and playful love for each other and their wedding was absolutely incredible! They started getting ready at the Canary, then headed over to the Santa Barbara Court House for the ceremony, and then up to the San Ysidro Ranch for a beautiful 7 person reception! They picked some of the best spots for their special day! And to top it all off the lavender was in bloom at the San Ysidro and it was breathtaking!! I am so excited to share these lovely images with you! Congrats Mike + Nani!
Sneak peek from their beautiful wedding in downtown Santa Barbara! More to come soon!!
