Darren and Kitra had such a fun country wedding!!
The day started at the mother of the bride’s house, which is a gorgeous house in the middle of the country with incredible views of acres and acres of rolling hills, horses and oak trees!! Then after the bridesmaids and bride were finished getting ready we went outside and we had horses join us for photos!! Kitra and her family own quite a few horses so we took a few photos with them and then released them back onto the property! Country living is so fun! Then we went to the local bar/saloon and it felt like it was out of the wild wild west!! We got some amazing portraits and I love the photos of the bride walking through the saloon doors!! So fun!! Their ceremony was at an old cowboy ghost town called Fox Creek Ranch, and the bride rode up to the ceremony in a classic red car!! Then after their ceremony we walked over to a huge oak tree and took some beautiful portraits of the family, bridal party and bride and groom (if you don’t already know, I absolutely love oak trees, so I was very excited).) And to top it all off the reception was a blast because it took place in the middle of the ghost cowboy town! The 350+ guests were amazing dancers and they danced, and spun around on the dance floor under white twinkle lights as the sun set and the stars came out! It was a gorgeous venue, and a perfect celebration of Darren and Kitra’s marriage!!
Darren and Kitra you are an incredible couple and James and I had so much fun photographing your amazing country wedding!!

Gosh I love these two!! Brooke is an amazing and stunning woman from the inside out, and when I heard she was dating someone I was thrilled and couldn’t wait to meet him! When I met Seve last Christmas I liked him right away and could tell they are perfect for each other and compliment each other so well!! They have a beautiful and honest relationship, and I love how silly and playful they are!! We had an amazing time at their engagement session in San Diego!! James and I are SO excited for them and we cannot wait to photograph their wedding in Colorado!!!

These two are are so cute!! Jake and Jenna are both fantastic dancers, and they actually met at a barn dance!! The night they met, Jenna went home and told her sister all about Jake!! Her sister helped convince Jenna to add him as a friend on Facebook and the rest is history! Jake and Jenna are a perfect match, and their wedding at Hummingbird Hollow was beautiful!!

James and I have been in the central valley the past two weekends to photograph Cody + Amy and Jake + Jenna’s wedding! The weddings were absolutely gorgeous, but were are so thankful to be back home to celebrate Cody + Kate in Montecito today! We did the Photo Booth at their wedding and had a blast, and then right before they left I snagged them for a few photos, and here’s the result:

I am absolutely in love with this wedding! Cody + Amy are two of my favorite people, and their wedding was perfect!
Their wedding took place at the bride’s sisters property in Bakersfield, and as you can see it is gorgeous!!
Cody and Amy have one of the best stories of how they met and started dating. I know I’ve shared it before, but it’s worth hearing again! Yes, it’s that good!
They’ve had a crush on each other since elementary school!! How crazy is that?! Cody transferred schools in fourth grade, and he noticed Amy right away. Over the next few years they got closer and closer as friends, started sitting by each other in every class, instant messaging each other till 3am! Then in high school Cody was the captain of the basketball team and Amy was the captain of the cheerleading squad, talk about the perfect high school set up! Their junior year they went on a double date and afterwards when they were walking on the beach Cody got down on one knee and asked her to be his girlfriend! Fast forward 8 years later, and Cody got back down on one knee and asked her to marry him, and 7 months later they are married! Their story seems like it’s straight out of a book, and when you meet them you know their love for each other is genuine and inspiring!
Their wedding was straight out of a fairytale!! Gold dresses, white flowers, beautiful tree canopies, pretty little flower girls with olive leaf crowns, cute ring bearers with suspenders, a stunning bride, handsome groom, and one of the best looking bridal parties I’ve ever seen! James and I had a blast photographing their wedding, and we have SO many favorite images!!
It has been such an amazing journey photographing them from Cody’s surprise proposal to Amy on a rooftop in downtown LA, to their engagement shoot at Knapps Castle, and now their wedding in Bakersfield! We are so excited to share these with you!!
