Words cannot express how much I love these two. They are prefect for each other in every way. Kelly is absolutely stunning from the inside out, she’s an outrageous dancer, a true fashionista, and one of the greatest friends I will ever have! When Brian started coming around I knew there was something special about him, because he was the only man I’ve ever known who could out-quote Kelly on SNL and Kristin Wiig impressions! And to top it off he’s handsome, hilarious and a Fire Fighter! Yes please! Talk about a match made in heaven! Plus the story of how Brian pursued Kelly is mind blowing! He knew exactly what he wanted and he would stop at nothing! They were dating long distance for a year, and Brian bought the ring before Kelly even moved out there! He held onto it for months for 3 months before he proposed, and somehow Kelly’s family kept it a secret from her the entire time! When he did propose, before he pulled out the ring, he pulled out a framed dried flower that he had kept since sophmore year when he asked Kelly to a dance. He said he watched the flower fall out of her hair and he picked it up and kept it in his journal until he was ready to propose! Talk about romantic and thoughtful! It gets me teary eyed every time I think about it! Kelly you’ve got yourself a good one, and Brian is so lucky to have you too! I couldn’t be happier for these two and I am SO excited to photograph their wedding this summer! I already know I am going to cry tears of joy during the ceremony, and I know the dance floor is going to be epic!

Every time I’ve done a photoshoot with Kelly (senior portrait, family, etc.) we always take a few together. So we had to keep with tradition.
The top right is definitely my favorite:

Ryan and Mandi are such a sweet couple. They live in Arizona and came out to Santa Barbara for their engagement shoot and everything about it was incredible. Gorgeous weather, awesome location, and a beautiful couple. Can’t wait for their wedding this summer!

Kyle and Kailee are awesome!
Not only are they a good looking couple, but they brought their cute St. Bernard puppy “Bernie” along with them, and I quickly fell in love!!

It was perfect lighting on a perfect day….and I’m super excited about their wedding this summer!!

I love these guys!
I’ve known Erin since high school and always been amazed by her beauty and kind heart, and the second I met Niall and heard his brilliant Irish accent I was completely smitten.

In the middle of the shoot, Niall told me that they thought about doing the engagement session where he proposed, but they decided to do Santa Barbara instead….kinda crazy because he proposed in Ireland!!! so fun

I’m so excited for their wedding, and even more excited for all the things the Lord has planned for their future….in Ireland

Meghan Nowell just graduated Westmont College as an art major!

I had the pleasure of having three classes with her this year, and was constantly inspired by her creativity.
She asked me to take some photos of her, to remember this time in her life, and to give to her mother, of course.
Here are a few favorites:

This weekend was full of fun and photo shoots!
Engagement, senior portraits, graduation shoots, and my sister’s prom…
(So my next few weeks will be very busy, especially because I have finals all this week)

But as I started to upload images, I saw this one and had to share it with you.
So here is a sneak peak at Meghan Nowell’s grad photos:

[more to come soon]

If you do not know the Ryan’s you are missing out.
A truly incredible family.
For Christmas, Jenna (youngest daughter) wanted to get her dad a present, but knew he already had everything, so she asked me to photograph the ladies as a surprise for her dad (Ricky Ryan-paston of Calvary Chapel SB).
I gladly agreed, and was so happy with how the shots turned out…although they are such beautiful women, they made my job quite easy.
