These two are awesome! I am so excited to share their engagement shoot, because we had perfect light and so much fun! James and I loved getting to know Danny + Brenda a little better during the engagement shoot! They are such a fun couple, and they look so good together! Brenda is absolutely stunning, Danny is quite handsome, and together they are so cute!! We had perfect golden light, a breathtaking sunset, and combined with their good looks, it made for perfect shoot! We are so excited for these two to tie the knot, and we can’t photograph the wedding!!!
There were horses, oak trees, golden fields, an old cowboy ghost town, and an amazing couple who are so in LOVE!! Here’s the sneak peek from their beautiful wedding, I can’t wait to share the rest!
These two are so fun and have a playful love for each other! James and I loved laughing with them throughout the shoot! We are so excited to photograph their wedding next spring!
Tyler + Monica
sneak peek from their wonderful engagement session!
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!!
Gosh I love these two! They have one of the best stories!
They’ve had a crush on each other since elementary school!! How crazy is that?! Cody transferred schools in fourth grade, and he noticed Amy right away. Over the next few years they got closer and closer as friends, started sitting by each other in every class, instant messaging each other till 3am! Then in high school Cody was the captain of the basketball team and Amy was the captain of the cheerleading squad, talk about the perfect high school set up! Their junior year they went on a double date and afterwards when they were walking on the beach Cody got down on one knee and asked her to be his girlfriend! Fast forward 8 years later, and Cody got back down on one knee and asked her to marry him! Their story seems like it’s straight out of a book, and when you meet them you know their love for each other is genuine and inspiring!
James and I were so excited to photograph the Cody’s surprise proposal to Amy a few months back, and we had an amazing time photographing their engagement session last weekend! Since the proposal was on a rooftop in downtown LA (dreamy, I know) we decided to do something entirely different for the engagement session! We headed up the mountain to Knapp’s Castle and it was incredible! The light was golden and gorgeous! While we were shooting a group of 30-40 people arrived so we had a bit of challenge shooting around them, but Cody and Amy were great and we successfully avoided the group and got some breath taking images! Enjoy!
I know I already posted one sneak peek from Cody and Amy’s engagement session, but I just had to post another!
Cody and Amy an incredible couple, and were a joy to photograph!!
As I am editing the images from their shoot I am drooling over the gorgeous light! It’s unreal!
So excited to post more images from their shoot so you can see what I’m talking about!
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!
Isaac and Lynnsie are not engaged, BUT they are so in LOVE!
They came to visit Santa Barbara to celebrate their one year anniversary of dating, and James and I couldn’t resist taking photos of their beautiful faces!
They have such an honest and beautiful love for each other, and they are so fun and playful! And Lynnsie is s.t.u.n.n.i.n.g!!! We had an incredible time taking pictures of them and we can’t wait to share more!!!
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!
During the shoot, we saw dolphins off the end of the pier right where he proposed!! So special!!
sneak peek from Tim and Jen’s beautiful Santa Barbara beach engagement session yesterday!
It’s pretty crazy that this is what winter looks like here. I guess it’s clear why they call it paradise!
