Kyle + Jess had a beautiful wedding in a private estate in Temecula. Kyle’s sister is one of my best friends and when they asked James and I to photograph their wedding we were thrilled! The Cochrans are a wonderful family and adding Jess to the family makes them even more incredible! Jess wore her mother’s dress which was originally made by her grandma, and then her mother sewed 10,000 beads onto it for Jess’ wedding! Such an amazing labor of love, and Jess looked absolutely stunning!! Kyle has great style too, and with his polkadot bowtie and the groomsmen in ascots, they all looked fantastic!! They had a gorgeous ceremony that overlooked the valley, a lively and hilarious bridal party, and they all danced the night away with friends and family! So excited for these two! Congrats Kyle + Jess!
Kyle gave his groomsmen an Irish Carbomb kit!
One of my favorite first looks:
Kyle’s reaction is priceless!
We had way too much fun with this bridal party:
Hilarious groomsmen moments:
Still amazed at this breathtaking sunset!

Tyler + Monica are a great couple and they got married at such a beautiful venue! Hartley Botanica has the prettiest ceremony site I have ever seen! When I walked up it literally took my breath away! And to top it all off Heather Locklear and Richie Sambora were there! It was a beautiful ceremony with beautiful people! I am so excited to share these images!
Bobby and Courtney are an incredible couple and their wedding was nothing short of spectacular!! It was a true Santa Barbara wedding!! The day started with getting ready at The Upham Hotel, then off to the Santa Barbara Club where the guests started arriving and were surprised with a ride on the Trolley down to the Santa Barbara Stearns Wharf for a ceremony overlooking the ocean right before sunset!! It was breathtaking!! Cocktail hour took place at the Sea Center where guests could touch the sharks and see the amazing sea life! Then they all hopped back on the trolley (while James and I took golden light photos of the bride and groom yay!) and back to the SB Club for an epic evening of singing, dancing and so much fun!! It was a wonderful Santa Barbara wedding and I am so excited to share these amazing images of this great couple!!
The groom and one of his groomsmen wanted to do a mock first look! So funny!
And here is the real first look! It was beautiful, emotional and so special!
The bride peeking out the window to watch her guest arrive and be escorted onto trollies and taken to the Wharf!!
I call this next series of photos, The Bouquet Brawl. It got pretty intense!
The Garter Toss was pretty eventful too!
Sneak peek from their amazing wedding at Hartley Botanica! Hartley Botanica is one of my new favorite venues, and once you see the stunning ceremony, I bet it’ll be your new favorite too!! Can’t wait to share more from their day!
Michael + Amy are an amazing couple!! They are so fun and playful and they have an honest and beautiful love for each other! Plus they have impeccable style!! They traveled from London, across the pond, to beautiful Santa Barbara for their wedding! And it was a perfect day!!
We started the day taking portraits and a lovely first look at the Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara , then we got on the Jump On The School Bus to head over to their ceremony on the cliff overlooking the ocean at The Douglas Preserve, and then all the guests got on the bus and we went to the bride’s mother’s home for a gorgeous reception! It was a beautiful and dreamy wedding day, and I am SO excited to share these images!!
Special thanks to the one and only Tyler Speier for making the day incredible!!
Dustin and Marie are such a lovely couple! They got engaged in Santa Barbara last year, and had their wedding on their one year anniversary of getting engaged! How fun is that?! They are from Canada, so when they told me they wanted to get married in SB, I was so excited!! They had a beautiful and intimate destination wedding at the Santa Barbara Court House followed by a great reception at Stella Mare’s! One of my favorite things about their wedding is that they allowed amble amount of time in the day for photos, so we got to go to one of my favorite location and take some breathtaking images!! I am so excited to share these with you! Congrats Dustin and Marie!
Tim + Jennifer’s wedding took place at the Montecito Country Club and it was a classy and wonderful wedding!
