Michaela is a friend of mine, and a talented friend at that! I first met her via email when she asked if I'd come photograph her good friend Codie's bridal shower (Codie is one of my 2013 brides). After that we decided to put together a wedding styled shoot in Santa Barbara, which was AMAZING! We got it featured on Ruffled too :) Then Codie & Josh's wedding happened, which by the way was fabulous, and Michaela was a bridesmaid. A little while after, Michaela asked if I'd come take pictures of her for her new website that was debuting soon. So we met up, headed to field, and photographed in the amazing golden light. I adore her and you should probably go and check out her website now, Michaela Noelle Designs!
