Danny + Shannon were such a joy to photograph! It’s so clear they are head over heel for each other by the way they look at each other! Danny is so romantic, and proposed in Paris at the Eifel Tower, and during their engagment shoot he kept grabbing her face and telling her how cute she is! My heart melted every time he said it! Shannon is absoutley stunning, and together they make the cutest couple! We are so excited to share these photos and can’t wait to photograph their wedding this spring!
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:
Here’s a sneak peek from David + jennies’ gorgeous golden engagement session!
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!!
Matt + Stephanie flew out to California from Oklahoma for their engagement photos! So excited to share a sneak peek from their beautiful session!
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!

Tyler and Monica are an amazing couple, full of laughter and joy! We had a great time on their photoshoot, and the warm golden light was so beautiful!!
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!
