James and I have dreamed of photographing a wedding at Villa Sevillano, and Steve and Vanessa’s wedding did not disappoint! Villa Sevillano has so many incredible locations: the villa, the walkways, infinity pool, and even the driveway are all fabulous! James and I were in creative heaven the entire time! And on top of the gorgeous location, Steve and Vanessa are such a cute couple and you can see how deeply they love each other by the way they look into each other’s eyes! Vanessa was absolutely stunning in her Pronovias gown, and Steve’s white suit was the perfect touch! Well dressed guests flew in from across the world for these two, and the day was filled with joyful celebration! Kendle and her team did a fantastic job planning the day, and we are beyond excited to share a few of our favorites from the day with you! Cheers!
Aren’t these two the cutest? We had a blast photographing them at the classic Santa Barbara Mission and chasing the light through eucalyptus groves in the hills of the riviera!
We are so excited to share a sneak peek of their dreamy and classic Santa Barbara engagement session last night!
Sneak peek of this lovely couple and their beautiful wedding last Sunday!
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!
Gosh we love these two! Adam and Mary are like a breath of fresh air! They are fun, adventerous, and a joy to be around! We started the shoot at their adorable house with their dog Grommit, and then we went on a little adventure up in the mountains above Santa Barbara. We pulled off on the side of the road, and chased the light until we ended up on top of a mountain that overlooked all of Santa Barbara, all while a gorgeous sunset was unfolding before our eyes. It was pretty much a perfect evening!
My heart is so full! I love these two so much!! I had the privilege and honor of PHOTOGRAPHING the wedding AND be a BRIDESMAID!! Being able to stand up there during the ceremony and capture the day (with James’ help of course) was a dream come true!!
This past year I’ve had many of my close friends get married, and I just have to say watching my best friends fall in love is one of the greatest things!
Hanna is my oldest friend! We have been friends for over 20 years (we met doing hand motions together in Vacation Bible School, how fun!!), she was one of my bridesmaids, and we have countless memories including laughing till milk came out our noses (okay it just came out MY nose)! We have known each other through SO many seasons, and watching her and Cody fall in love has been incredible, and my favorite season so far! They are such a cute couple, they look fantastic together, their strengths compliment each other so well, and they truly adore each other! Plus they are so fun to photograph because they’re so playful and flirty!
Cody and Hanna, I love you dearly and I am so excited to continue to watch your love for each other grow! Welcome to the married club!! Cheers to The Wagners!!!

James was an “honorary bridesmaid” because he was with us while we got ready that morning! He’s such a trooper!
James shared his incredible dance moves and everyone went wild! Here’s an epic moment of The Worm:
Chris and Holly are so cute! They love each other so much and it is so easy to see how much they adore each other! Throughout the shoot they exchanged the cutest glances, secrets, and kisses! James and I had an amazing time photogrpahing them and we can’t wait to photograph their wedding this fall!!
