Levi and Natalie’s wedding was an absolute blast and an amazing celebration! It was full of light and joy, and it’s so clear they are loved and cherished! Their first look was on a rooftop overlooking the ocean (so dreamy), and then their ceremony was at one of the prettiest golf courses we have ever seen, and their kiss after they were pronounced husband and wife was legendary!! It was an amazing and beautiful day to say the least! And then at the reception James and I even ended up on the dance floor together, and then James convinced all the guests to lay down on the dance floor during “Shout!” (a little bit softer now). I think it’s safe to say we were reminded of why we love photographing weddings so much, and we truly had an amazing time photographing their gorgeous joy filled day! So excited to share these with you! Congrats Levi and Natalie!
I love Levi’s look during the first look!
James even twirled me around on the dance floor for a song! It was so fun!
Ty and Justine are so cute together and they were a blast to photograph! Justine’s family owns a 400 acre property with goreous trees, creeks, oak groves, fields of yellow mustard flowers, horses and 200 acres of avocado orhards! When Justine sugessted we do their engagmeent shoot here I thought I was dreaming! It was an absolutley gorgeous location, with a super awesome couple, and I am so excited to share these with you!
How cool is this couple for getting married at the Zoo?? When they contacted me and told me they were getting married at the zoo, I was thrilled! Not only is the Santa Barbara Zoo an amazing and beautiful location, they also bring the animals out for part of the cocktail hour AND guests get to feed the giraffes!! Incredible!! Jason and Liz are a fun and playful couple, and their wedding was a beautiful celebration of their marriage!! James and I had a blast photographing their wedding, and we still can’t get over how cool it was to mingle with the flamingos!! Congrats Jason and Liz!!
Check out this amazing and simple decor: lavender and gold animals! Each guest got a different animal, how fun is that!!
ALWAYS a pleasure to work with our favorite DJ, DJ Heckick
The A-Team. A necessary selfie!
Here is a sneak peek from Cody and Amy’s amazing engagement shoot today! I love these two so much and I can’t wait for you to see all the incredible photo greatness that happened today!!
Even though Isaac and Lynnsie are NOT engaged their love is just as evident as if they were! The way they love each other is so rare and inspiring, and they are perfect for each other in so many ways! Lynnsie is sweet, kind and angelic-like in her appearance, as well as her character and voice. Isaac is strong, masculine, and playful! He has an amazing ability to make people laugh, and he also has a fantastic voice and guitar abilities. The compliment each other so well, and just wait till you hear how their voices blend in perfect harmony. I get chills every time I hear them sing together!
I cannot wait to see how their love grows and strengthens as their relationship continues!! They are some of my favorite humans, and they are so near and dear to me and James. We are so thankful to call them friends!
I had the hardest time editing these images because all I wanted to do was share every single one with you on here!
Truth be told, I’m not finsihed with them, but I just had to share a few.
So enjoy, and know that there are many more where these came from!
This is by far one of my favorite engagement sessions I’ve ever done!
Matt and Katey were a joy to photograph, and their are no words that can describe how much in love they are. They are both beautiful from the inside out, and reminded me of what true love looks like.
I actually did this shoot back in July, but just realized today that I had yet to post it on here…so enjoy!
Today I had WAY too much fun assisting for Josh Newton at a wedding out in Goleta at the Glenn Annie Golf Course. We had a fun filled day, and I cannot wait to post more images, but for now, here is my favorite:
