Billy and Kelly had a beautiful intimate wedding on a perfect day in January. They are a great example of “when you know, you know.” The first time they met they both knew there was something special, and after just 6 dates Billy asked Kelly to marry him!! After seeing them interact on their engagement shoot, it is clear they are perfect for each other, and they’re so cute together!! James and I had a wonderful time photographing their wedding, and we can’t wait to see the love between them grow and grow!

One of my favorite questions to ask couples is how they met. Jason and Dana have an amazing story! Dana was a student in Jason’s AP English class in Hong Kong 6 years ago. They had a normal teacher to student relationship, but Dana had such an impact on Jason he wrote a book about her without telling her till years later!! After Dana graduated she contacted Jason because he had been on her heart, and when they met up they talked for hours, and they started a friendship that deepened every time they talked. They would write emails, text, talk on the phone and skype for hours and hours, and they began falling for each other. Jason came out to LA to visit Dana and after a wonderful evening together and a kiss on the beach in Malibu, they were officially a couple. Jason moved out to LA a year later and it wasn’t long before he proposed!!!

I remember Dana telling me about Jason right when they started dating. She said “Jess, he’s the one and I’ll be contacting you in a little bit about our wedding.” She was right, and I am SO glad I got to photograph their wedding! When we did their engagement shoot a few months back, I asked when they first said “I love you” and Jason said the sweetest thing. He said “well I’ve loved her for 6 years, but we told each other a few years back.” Jason has loved Dana for years and it is incredible to see how their love for each other has grown over time. I can’t wait to see their love continue to grow forever!

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!

Kyle and Emily are one of those couples where you can’t help but smile and laugh when you’re with them. They are so full of joy and it spreads to everyone they meet! Their wedding was such a joyful celebration of their love for each other, and I am so glad James and I got to steal them away during sunset for some unbelievable golden hour photos! Kyle and Emily we love you and are so excited for your love to continue to grow in this new season!!

Such an incredible Montecito wedding today!! Here are just a few images I picked for the day of slideshow…more to come soon!!

 

Hands down two of my favorite people in the world!
such a blessing to be able to photograph their special day….from the rehearsal dinner to waking up SUPER early on the day of to photograph Britt and Mike skating together, it was a wedding that I will never forget and was one of my favorite weddings I have ever had the pleasure of attending and photographing…and by the end I felt like I was part of the family!

Mike and Jen I love you both dearly and am so blessed by the way you reflect our savior’s love….praying for you lots in this new season!




Sneak peak from last weekend’s wedding!



just a little glimpse of Alex and Sandy’s beautiful Newport Beach wedding!

We couldn’t have asked for a better day. It was gorgeous and sunny and absolutely perfect. I remember when I met Alex and Sandy when they flew out here from Illinois for their engagement pictures…I didn’t know what they looked like but when I found them inside Starbucks I was so excited because they are such a cute couple, and have so much joy that it just oozes out of them.

The wedding venue was awesome (right on the beach) and every single detail was so well thought out…we were even an hour ahead of schedule, so we got to relax for an hour in the middle of the day…that never happens! Clearly Sandy is a p.l.a.n.n.e.r!!!

I went to this wedding only knowing 3 people: the bride, the groom and one bridesmaid, and I left with about a hundred new best friends…I love it when that happens.

Huggetts I wish you the best in this new season in your life, and I was so blessed to be a part of the celebration!

So fun to kick off the first wedding of the season with Greg and Lupe’s beautiful wedding at Glenn Annie!

Greg and Lupe did an amazing job planning the wedding, and their ingenious purchase of freeze-dried rose petals made for some fantastic pictures!!

Inge + Jay are one of a kind and so dear to my heart. I still remember their engagement shoot when they showed up with a tandem bicycle, picnic and a heart shaped balloon…I immediately fell in love with them.

They have such a sweet and beautiful love for each other and I was privileged to be able to capture their amazing wedding day…..and on top of all that the bridal party was absolutely phenomenal and made the day even better than I could have ever expected…and let me tell you, the amazingness of the day and the fun bridal party continued to bring it on dance floor, and it was incredible.

Tagliarenis I wish you the best and pray that this new season is exceedingly abundant to all you could hope of imagine. I love you both so much!
