Sammy & Clayton! San Luis Obispo, CA {Green Gate Ranch}


I first Met Sammy a little over a year ago when we worked on a styled shoot at The Dana Powers House together. She was so sweet, and we instantly hit it off. Since then, she has done hair & makeup for many of my clients & it always turns out fabulous! We have become friends, and I'm so glad we have!! Yesterday I got to hang out with this lovely couple & their doggies at Green Gate Ranch for a quick little session. I can't wait to see them again soon :)

Brandi & Andrew married! Santa Ynez, CA

From the bride Brandi: "We met at work the summer of 2010. We hit it off pretty quickly and started spending a lot of time together. We were both still working on ourselves as individuals but that summer we decided to take a trip together for a week to visit his mom in Canada. It was my first time visiting the country and we had an incredible time. The trip was bittersweet because shortly after, we went our separate ways for a while. As we spent time working towards our life goals, Andrew was deciding what he really wanted. In February of 2011, Andrew showed up at a party I was at and asked me to make it official for good! After that we were inseparable. We have since moved together from San Diego to Orange County, Orange County to the Bay Area, the Bay Area to Vancouver, BC and now we are back in the Bay Area with our cute pup Dusty."
"When Andrew and I first started hanging out, he quickly learned my love of all things Disney. I have been going to Disneyland since I was a child and it has always been a magical place of excitement for me. The first time we went to Disneyland (very early on in our relationship) I told him I had always dreamed of being proposed to in the park. Although it was never mentioned again, Andrew held onto this thought. In February of 2012, Andrew got together with some of my best friends and had them plan a trip to Disneyland. He made it appear as if he had no original intention of going but came at the last minute. As we walked into the park, we made a beeline for the castle. The plan was to take pictures in front of the castle. As we were taking a picture, Andrew said to me, "Remember that one time you told me you wanted to be proposed to in front of the castle?" He then got down on his knee and pulled out the ring. I was so shocked that I cried and didn't say yes for over a minute! He finally asked me, "Are you going to say yes?" I snapped out of it and excitedly replied, "YES!!!"

You may recognize Skylar on the far left, whose wedding we photographed last December :)

Dusty is part australian shepherd, part goldendoodle. He is so cute!!! And we all know how much I love doodles :)

Danielle & Scott married! San Luis Obispo, CA {Holland Ranch}

From the bride Danielle: Scott and I were introduced by 2 of our groomsmen (Dan Fitch and Justin Hughes) after their alumni baseball game. Dan and Justin had called me to come down to San Jose and go out with them and a bunch of their friends; Scott being one of their friends. The 2 of us talked all night and had a great time but we were both seeing other people at the time, so nothing came of it. Then a few weeks later Scott tracked me down and asked me out..... Turned out we both had broken things off with the people were seeing. We have been together ever since!
I was having a horrible day at work and was very grumpy by the time I got home. When I opened the front door Scott cued Garth Brooks To Make You Feel My Love. There were candles and roses everywhere; he lead me to a stool then he got down on one knee. Later I found out he video taped the whole thing! Which is great because I didn't remember anything he had said! :) Afterwards we popped champagne and called our families. Then he said I had an appointment and we had to go. He had booked me a manicure because he knew everyone would be looking at my hand and I hadn't had one in a while! Later we went to dinner with our families. It was so simple but so thoughtful! I loved it!
