David and Jenise are an incredible couple! They are both school teachers and love everything about the ocean! They are playful and silly and David kept quoting and singing lines from songs during the shoot that made me and James crack up! One of the most incredible things about their relationship is how they have so much fun with each other and they also care so deeply for each other! You can see it by how they look at each other! They are so in love!
 
James and I loved getting to know more about them during their engagmenet shoot, and we even had a little tree frog join us for part of the shoot! How cool is that?!
 
We are SO excited for these two to tie the knot this summer and we can’t wait to photograph their wedding!!
How cute is this tree frog that joined us for a photo:

Montecito was the perfect spot for Tyler + Monica’s engagement session! The Four Seasons is always gorgeous, and with amazing flowers, golden sunlight and Butterfly Beach across the street, it was perfect in every way!
Tyler + Monica are an amazing couple and they have such a sweet love for each other!! James and I absolutely loved spending the last few hours of sunlight with them! From the moment they walked up, till the last photo we took, we were amazed at their good looks, amazing outfits, and the sweet way they look at each other!  We are SO excited for them and we can’t wait to photograph their wedding this fall!

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
