I am SO excited about this! Hanna is one of my very best friends (fun fact: we met as 4yr olds doing hand motions together at VBS, and we have been friends ever since). She is my oldest friend and I was so honored to photograph Cody’s beautiful proposal to her today!!! 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 parent’s house with a slideshow!!! We are super sneaky! How fun is that!?! We are SO excited for these two to get hitched and we couldn’t be happier!! Congrats Cody and Hanna! We love you guys!!
These two lovely humans are not engaged, but we had SO much fun doing a photoshoot while they were visiting Santa Barbara! Jeff is a professional magician, and he is the BEST magician I have ever seen! And Deanna is a princess at Disneyworld, how amazing is that?! They are one of the coolest couples ever, and I am so excited to share a little sneak peek of the magic that happened during our photoshoot!
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!
Tyler + Monica are a great couple and they got married at such a beautiful venue! Hartley Botanica has the prettiest ceremony site I have ever seen! When I walked up it literally took my breath away! And to top it all off Heather Locklear and Richie Sambora were there! It was a beautiful ceremony with beautiful people! I am so excited to share these images!
Justin and Nina are perfect! These two are incredible and their amazing wedding proves it!!! From start to finish the day was full of fun, energy, and excitement!! SO excited for these two!! Congrats Justin + Nina!!
Love these confetti poppers from ConfettiGram!!
These bridesmaids were SO MUCH FUN!! I absolutely love that they wanted to jump on the bed in their robes!!
Bobby and Courtney are an incredible couple and their wedding was nothing short of spectacular!! It was a true Santa Barbara wedding!! The day started with getting ready at The Upham Hotel, then off to the Santa Barbara Club where the guests started arriving and were surprised with a ride on the Trolley down to the Santa Barbara Stearns Wharf for a ceremony overlooking the ocean right before sunset!! It was breathtaking!! Cocktail hour took place at the Sea Center where guests could touch the sharks and see the amazing sea life! Then they all hopped back on the trolley (while James and I took golden light photos of the bride and groom yay!) and back to the SB Club for an epic evening of singing, dancing and so much fun!! It was a wonderful Santa Barbara wedding and I am so excited to share these amazing images of this great couple!!
I call this next series of photos, The Bouquet Brawl. It got pretty intense!
The Garter Toss was pretty eventful too!
