Matt and Stephanie are such a sweet couple! They came out from Oklahoma for their engagement shoot and we had a blast taking photos at the Four Seasons and Butterfly beach! It was a beautiful day and a spectacular sunset! We are thankful for awesome couples like these guys, and we are excited to photograph their wedding this summer!!
Zach and Hannah are the definition of awesome! They are super fun and playful and it’s so clear how much they love each other! Zach wanted the proposal to be a surprise, so he blindfolded Hannah and took her to a beautiful place she had been many years before and when he took off her blindfold and showed her the beautiful location she was so excited!! It had been pouring rain all day and stopped as soon as they arrived! Once she had taken in the beauty he got down on one knee!! Then her sister, his brother, and 2 freinds came out of hiding and wished them congrats!! It was such a beautiufl moment!! Then it started pouring rain agian and we did an amazing breathtaking photoshoot of Zach and Hannah in the rain!! They are such troopers and it was so much fun to photogrpah their beautiful proposal!! We are so so so excited for these guys to tie the knot!!! Yay!
James was a CHAMPION for this photoshoot! He dressed in this all green suit and hid deep in the bushes to get Hannah’s reaction!!! He even had to smash spiders that were on his camera mid photoshoot!! I’m so proud of my husband!!
Here is james in his fantastic hiding spot!!
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 Jess wore her mother’s dress which was originally made by her grandma, and then her mother sewed 10,000 beads onto it for Jess’ wedding!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!
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!!
