Isaac + Anna have such an honest and beautiful love for each other! They live up in northern California and we were so excited when they said they want to do their engagement shoot in Santa Barbara and include some of the top spots in SB! We started at Muni Wine in the Funk Zone, then headed over to the Santa Barbara Mission, and then we played around and danced in the harbor and then we took off our shoes and ran and skipped on the beach just in time for sunset! It was a perfect day and a dream of a photoshoot!! We are so excited for these two and we can’t wait for their wedding in Napa this fall!!
Sneak peek from our photoshoot with Zach + Hannah in the snow! So excited for these two to tie the knot this summer!
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!!
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!
Matt + Stephanie flew out to California from Oklahoma for their engagement photos! So excited to share a sneak peek from their beautiful session!
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!!
Kyle + Kaylie are fun, cute and playful!! We had an amazing time adventuring around and chasing the light! We found some great spots and I learned something really fun about Kyle. He is great at finding four leaf clovers! How cool is that!?! I had actually never seen a four leaf clover in real life, and when I told him that, he looked down in a patch of clovers and found one!! I was so impressed! Kyle + Kaylie, you are so fun and you make an amazing couple! We are so excited you’re tying the knot, and we can’t wait to photograph your wedding!!
This is the four leaf clover Kyle found!! It’s the first one I’ve ever seen in real life! So impressed by his four leaf clover finding skills
Oh and yes, he is frolicking in the photo on the left…because what else are you supposed to do in a patch of clovers besides frolic
Right as the camera was about to go, a wave came up and James was the only one wearing shoes so he had to run to higher ground. It made for a perfect blooper!!
Cody + Hanna are a lovely couple!! Hanna is one of my very best friends, and it has been amazing to photograph this seaosn of her life!! James and I had the pleasure of photogrphing Cody‘s proposal to Hanna a few weeks ago, which was incredible! James and I hid deep in a cave on top of a mountain with sniper lenses and waited for Cody to drop to a knee! It was a beautiful moment (I cried a few happy tears) and the best part is Hanna didn’t even know we took photos till we showed up at her engagement party with a slideshow!!! We are super sneaky! How fun is that! Then we did an engagment shoot a few weeks later, and it was so fun!! We did their shoot on a beautiful sunny day in Santa Barbara, and it was super windy, but we used the wind to our benefit and made it look like we brought fans with us to make Hanna’s hair flow in the wind!! It was hilarious, and such a blast!! Cody and Hanna are kind and genuine, and some of the most amazing people you will ever meet! We are SO excited for these two to get hitched and we couldn’t be happier!! Congrats Cody and Hanna! We love you guys!!
Since Hanna is one of my bestie I had to take a few photos of just the two of us together!!
