This gorgeous weather and golden light has us dreaming of summer days!! Tommy & Veronica are adorable and their engagement session was stunning! We started the evening with drinks at The Biltmore and then made our way over to the carousel at Chase Palm Park. They are so cute and playful and if you’ve ever tried to kiss while on horses at opposite heights on a carousel you know how difficult it can be, but these two mastered it the first time and kissed and laughed the whole ride! We were so impressed! Then we headed over to Butterfly Beach to catch that gorgeous golden light, and we smiled as we watched the way they love each other! It’s clear they’re free to be themselves with each other, and we had such a wonderful time photographing their love! We finished off the evening by taking off her beautiful Jimmy Choo heels and walking on the beach toward a beautiful sunset. It was a perfect evening through and through! Congrats Tommy & Veronica, we are so excited for your wedding!

Mike & Ash are so cute together! James and I had the pleasure of photographing two weddings last year where they were both in the bridal party, and now they are the ones getting married! Yay! We had a blast during their engagement session and we are so excited to photograph their wedding this summer!

We love sunshine and golden light, but there is something about a stormy sky that holds mystery and romance. We’re so excited to kick off 2016 with Connor & Margaret’s engagement session! They are high school sweethearts and they were a dream to photograph! They’re stunning from the inside out, and the way they look at each other is captivating! We were thrilled for our rainy day adventure filled with romance, and we can’t wait to photograph their wedding in May!

Oh how we love this classy couple! They looked like they were ready for the red carpet when the arrived for their engagement session (insert heart eyed emojis!).  We are obsessed with Michael’s timeless suit and Brittany’s stunning gown (by Badly Mischka), and on top of looking fantastic they are so sweet and fun! Their engagement session was truly a dream, and we are thrilled to photograph their wedding at the Four Seasons Santa Barbara in November!

Sean + Olivia are so cute and playful! We just love the way they look at each other! We connected from the second we met, and James and I are so glad we got to photograph them while they were in town for Thanksgiving! We can’t wait to photograph their wedding in August, and for now here are a few of our favorites from the engagement shoot!

Proposals are so fun! The anticipation and anxious excitement create some of the most incredible emotions we get to photograph!

When Felix told us of his plans to propose at Santa Claus Beach we couldn’t wait to hide and capture the proposal! When the day came James and I hid on opposite ends of the beach and watched and waited for the moment!

Felix and Shelby arrived in style in a VW Bus and walked into the beach and set up chairs and blankets and started to drink classic coke and play cribbage. This was a normal weekday evening activity, so Shelby had no idea what was about to happen! (Well done Felix!) While we were hiding I turned around and saw her family hiding right behind me, and I got even more excited! We waited with excitement and a few minutes later I received a text asking when the light was best for the proposal, and since we were all in position and the golden light was absolutely perfect I said “it’s ideal right now!!” Felix stood up and asked Shelby to join him. As he dropped to one knee, I could hear happy tears and sniffles coming from the family behind me! Shelby’s reaction was precious, and when her family ran out and surprised her I started to cry happy tears too! Felix + Shelby we are thrilled for your engagement and loved capturing your special moment! Cheers!

These two are so cute! Eddie and Maggie met at the beginning of freshman year at UCSB and they’ve been best friends ever since! Everytime James and I get to photograph a couple who are best friends with each other, we are thrilled! It was a joy to watch them laugh with each other throughout the shoot, and we are so excited for their wedding in Spring! Also, I’m obsessed with her yellow diamond, well done Eddie!

These two are the cutest! They are both Santa Barbara natives with generations of Santa Barbara history! To capture their roots, we shot at the SB Mission, and then up the mountain to catch the last of the golden light among the eucalyptus overlooking the city! It was a perfect shoot and the James and I had a blast because the chemistry between these two is incredible! We loved photogrpahing their engagent shoot and we can’t wait for their wedding next summer! Cheers!

Dave + Morgan are amazing! They drove up from LA for their engagement shoot and we had a blast getting to know them over wine at Muni, and shooting all around the Funk Zone! Then we headed over to Chase Palm Park to catch the last bit of sunlight and they wanted to ride the carousel! Talk about dream clients, these guys are incredible! They are fun and playful, they have great style,  and you can see it’s so clear they adore each other! We are so excited for them to get hitched, and we can’t wait to photograph their wedding day! Cheers!
