colin, allison, and leighton

my friends colin and allison, with their daughter leighton were a dream to shoot! they're beautiful people inside and out, and they sure know how to have fun. combine that with a beautiful santa barbara evening and really i could have handed my camera to any passerby - the results would have be awesome. love these!

abby and david's wedding

what a privilege it was to shoot abby and david's wedding! it couldn't have been a more beautiful day in santa barbara at the gorgeous courthouse sunken gardens, and i couldn't have spent it with a more wonderful couple. i instantly hit it off with abby and david over a year ago, when they were in the beginning stages of planning their dream wedding. and it was so great to shoot their rehearsal dinner and wedding as i seriously felt like i was a guest that just so happened to be carrying around a couple of large cameras. at the rehearsal, abby's father even sent me home with a six pack of his amazing homemade beer (a nut brown, and a pale ale). and i was told (not that i needed to be) that this quite an honor as he never parts with his beer easily.

the whole wedding day flowed beautifully, thanks to rebecca stone of duet weddings. if you are looking for a full service or "day of" wedding coordinator, you have got to talk to rebecca! the vibrant flowers were arranged by karen fox from a smiling garden. the reception was at casa de la guerra where gavin roy mixed the tunes and the delicious meal was catered by fire and ice.
