stephanie and scott's engagement session

i'm so excited for this post for several reasons...

first, because i had the privilege of hanging out with stephanie and scott this past weekend. we had a blast, and you can tell by looking at the pictures how much fun stephanie and scott had. we first went to the santa barbara botanic garden. what a beautiful place! then, we headed out to goleta beach, which is in my opinion is one of the more "photogenic" beaches in town. stephanie and scott are getting married this october at sandpiper golf course, and then are having the reception at their family's beautiful home. i can't wait!

second, because stephanie is apparently a blog stalker. scott spilled the beans about how often stephanie check the blog to see what i've been shooting, or what my family has been up to. her personal favorite post was "happy easter!". so in honor of stephanie, i posted 25 pics from the session! i normally try to only post between 7 and 10 images from an e-session, but this occasion called for a little extra.

and third, because this means i'm all caught up with blogging! i've been so blessed to be taking pictures of so many amazing, interesting, and just plain wonderful people lately.

so, does this mean the blog will go dark for a while? absolutely not! i'm shooting two sweet weddings this weekend, two family sessions next week, and two awesome weddings the following weekend. to top it all off, my boys are turning 5 next week - gotta post that up too.

chris and lauren's wedding

lauren was the princess bride, and chris was her prince. lauren looked absolutely stunning her dress. my wife says it was her favorite dress so far this year. lauren and chris were married at the beautiful maravilla gardens which felt like the grounds of their own castle. the vibrant colors were everywhere! chris and lauren are so in love, and were inseparable all night. delicious food and beverages were provided by command performance, tim with in the mix events had a sweet state of the art set up that kept everyone grooving, and i can't wait to see the video by dan at eurostar productions. it was a sweet day!
