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!
Oh how we loved this engagement shoot! Cory and Kara are clearly so in love, and watching the way they look at each other and make each other laugh melted our hearts! Their joy is contagious and as you can see they are stunning together and make such a cute couple! James and I are so excited to share this wonderful couple’s engagement photos and we can’t wait to shoot their summer wedding at the Canary Hotel!
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!

James and I have dreamed of photographing a wedding at Villa Sevillano, and Steve and Vanessa’s wedding did not disappoint! Villa Sevillano has so many incredible locations: the villa, the walkways, infinity pool, and even the driveway are all fabulous! James and I were in creative heaven the entire time! And on top of the gorgeous location, Steve and Vanessa are such a cute couple and you can see how deeply they love each other by the way they look into each other’s eyes! Vanessa was absolutely stunning in her Pronovias gown, and Steve’s white suit was the perfect touch! Well dressed guests flew in from across the world for these two, and the day was filled with joyful celebration! Kendle and her team did a fantastic job planning the day, and we are beyond excited to share a few of our favorites from the day with you! Cheers!

This wedding was a fairytale! James and I have dreamed of this day for years! James’ brother Jake started dating Jenny a month after James and I started dating, and it was so clear she and Jake are perfect for each other! They truly bring out the best in each other, and as you can tell, they are an extraordinary good looking couple! Their wedding took place at a beautiful ranch in San Diego, and they truly looked like a princess and prince charming! From her dress and gorgeous hair to his perfect smile, they looked like royalty! We are so excited to share a few of our favorites, and welcome our new sister!! Congrats Jake + Jenny!
I am so proud of my husband James, he is a champion! He wore so man “hats” on the wedding day, including: groomsman, photographer, dress and veil fluffer, bother, husband, epic dancer, and so many more, and he did them all perfectly!
