Tim and Jen have a great story of how hey ended up in Santa Barbara. They both lived in Washington DC and Tim was offered a job out in Santa Barbara. He decided to take the job and move to paradise, and he really wanted Jen to move out there with him!! Jen said the only way she would move cross country was if she had a job or an engagement ring….

Well…it wasn’t long before she visited Tim and they went kayaking out off the pier, and he proposed while they were kayaking!!! He even tied the ring to fishing line just in case it slipped. (such a smart move Tim!!)
After the proposal Jen packed up and moved out here to beautiful Santa Barbara and started planning the wedding!

We had such a fun time on the engagement session and we did it right by where Tim proposed! Such a fun shoot, with perfect sunshine and another beautiful winter day in paradise!

It’s pretty crazy that this is what winter looks like here. I guess it’s clear why they call it paradise!

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:

Mike and Meredith are so fun, and their wedding was beautiful! Mike, the groom, made all the bouquets the morning of the wedding AND he surprised the Meredith with a beautiful new wedding ring! She was completely surprised, way to go Mike!! Meredith looked absolutely stunning, and she had TWO wedding dresses, so she switched dresses throughout the day! How fun is that?!?
They are an amazing couple, and have a fun, real, and playful love for each other! Mike and Meredith, it was an honor to photograph your wedding, and James and I wish you the best!

Also, special thanks to Kim of Toast Santa Barbara for helping coordinate the day and make the details look their best!

Proposals are my favorite thing to photograph! The surprise, joy, laughter, tears, excitement and love are so genuine and beautiful! Plus James and I love going incognito with a crazy zoom sniper lens and acting like ninjas to capture the perfect moment! I am SO glad Cody asked us to capture the proposal, and when he told us it was a surprise to Joy, we were extra excited! It was a beautiful proposal and I am so exited for these two lovebirds to tie the knot! Congrats Cody and Joy!

These two lovebirds have a story that will blow you away! When I asked them when they first said “I love you,” they explained that they had said it on their first date but that they had already loved each other for 6 years. Jason and Dana truly loved each other for years and they both patiently waited for the right time. I am so excited their time has come! Their love, passion and faith are appartent to everyone they meet and I cannnot wait for them to get hitched!!
