Skylar & Shane married! Santa Barbara, CA

Skylar & Shane were married yesterday at the Stow House in Goleta, and had their reception at the Santa Barbara Club. With a December wedding, you just never know what the weather will be. The day started out overcast with little rain, but as it got closer to the ceremony, it started to pour. Luckily the rain let up just in time for portraits of the two of them. Skylar is such a trooper, not caring if her dress was getting dirty, walking across grass, leaves, through bushes, all for the sake of some awesome pictures!! This was a great wedding to end our 2012 wedding season! And I'm so happy that these high school sweethearts finally tied the knot after 11 years together :) Check out their engagement pictures here!

Megan & Don engaged! Los Alamos, CA

I first met up with Megan & Don at their wedding venue, Tres Hermanas Winery today, which is the first time I've ever met them. We then headed down to Los Alamos, which is a super, super cute town for their engagement pictures!! Not only did Megan email me last week saying she had bought a fur vest for her pictures, just like the one I happen to have haha, but when I met up with her today, we were both wearing cheetah print tops. I think this was meant to be haha. They are such a sweet and cute couple and I can't wait for their spring wedding in 2013!!

Brandi & Andrew engaged! Vancouver, British Columbia

Brandi is a close friend of Skylar, whose wedding I'm photographing this December. So when Brandi booked me for her Los Alamos wedding in 2013, I was beyond excited! And when Brandi told me she was headed to Canada for a few months and wanted me to come up there for engagement pictures, I was THRILLED! So this past weekend Adam & I had to pleasure of traveling up to Vancouver, BC for Brandi & Andrew's engagement session (we are currently still here, and I'm making this blog post from our hotel room haha). We managed to escape the rain in the early afternoon, and had a beautiful day at the park for pictures. They even brought along their puppy (who is part goldendoodle) to make an appearance in some pictures. Brandi & Andrew are only up in Vancouver for 6 months, so I know these pictures will be a great memory of their time spent up there. Adam & I loved hanging out with them, grabbing dinner & drinks after the photoshoot where we got to know each other really well. It's always the best getting able to hang out with my clients! :)

Thanks to Adam for some of these pictures too :)

Andrea & Will engaged! San Luis Obispo, CA

Yesterday I met up with Andrea & Will for their engagement session! We started off at a Edna Valley Winery in SLO, then headed to the beach! These two are so so nice and sweet. We had a blast everywhere we went, laughing and getting to know each other. I learned that these two love to snuggle, making my job very easy :) I can't wait for their upcoming May wedding at the Santa Barbara Womans Club!! PS. I'm kind of obsessed with a lot of these pictures! ;)

Obsessed with this picture below too!

Love Andrea's dimples when she smiles big!

We had some amazing golden light! Obsessed!

Kristen & Greg married! Los Alamos, CA {1880 Union Hotel}

Kristen & Greg had an amazing fall wedding yesterday in Los Alamos, at the 1880 Union Hotel. I've known from the start that their wedding was going to be beautiful and it for sure was!! When I walked into the reception site I was in awe of how perfect it was!! Kristen & Greg are such sweet, caring people and I'm SO thankful to have clients like them. They make my job easy and remind me how much I love doing what I do!! From her amazing head wreath, to her perfectly braided hair, to the different bridesmaids dresses, it was a unique day full of so many memories! Congrats Kristen & Greg, enjoy married life together :)

Check out Kristen & Greg's rainy day, beach engagement session!

Big thanks to Adam for capturing all these awesome pictures of Greg & his groomsmen!
