save the date!!!

leslie and jamie are going to have an amazing destination wedding at the beautiful occidental grand xcaret in riviera maya, mexico. well, leslie wants all her friends and family come join in the fun - and to make sure everyone saves the date on their calendar, she wanted her wedding date written in the sand - so she could put it on a card and mail it to them. the only problem...she is landlocked. so, she asked if i could help her out. i had fun watching the water come up and erase all my attempts at drawing a heart - i was finally able to complete it...a few times. here is one of them. I can't wait for their wedding!

also, a shot from the website of the occidental grand xcaret...don't you just want to be there right now!

We started out at serra cross park in ventura. What an amazing place, with views of ventura in every direction. we then headed down to the beach to catch the sunset. i can't wait for their september wedding at the gorgeous belle loreve in ojai.

tim and diana's wedding

a gorgeous day in santa barbara, and a gorgeous couple. everything about tim and diana's wedding was amazing. they were married on east beach and had the reception across the street at hotel mar monte. what a fun day!

nick and tammy's engagement session

nick and tammy are such great sports. they powered through this engagement session without complaint despite it being one of the windiest day of the year. by the end of the evening i'm sure they were frozen, but you would have never known it with all the fun they were having! thanks nick and tammy!

chris and lauren's engagement session

chis and lauren are beautiful people inside and out. I had so much fun tonight shooting their engagement session while we bathed in gorgeous sunlight. we were at the ventura pier, where chris and lauren had their first date! lauren is also a fan of the 80's band journey - so of course it had to go in the slideshow. its takin' me way back!

I'm so excited about their wedding at the beautiful maravilla gardens this july.
