chris and jessica's wedding

what do you get when chris, a set designer for the tv show number3s, and jessica, a costume designer get hitched? a country wedding at taft ranch (a great new venue) in atascadero topped off by an incredible attention to detail of course...from the brides cowboy boots to the french country florals, from the gourmet olive oil bar to the whimsical one of a kind cake - and you can't forget the vintage pedestal bathtub filled with ice to keep the keg cold - this was a special wedding to be a part of. not only that, but chris and jessica are awesome! at the engagement session, they treated me to chips, salsa, guacamole, and margaritas - so you know they hold a special place in my heart. the gorgeous flowers were designed by jennifer hocker and she was also the "day of" coordinator.

melyssa, rob, and abby's engagement session

i have more photos from the road trip coming soon, but i've been dying to get melyssa and rob's e-session photos up on the blog. so here they are...

when i first talked with melyssa on the phone, we hit it off right away - so it was great to meet in person when she and rob came up to santa barbara for their engagement session. one thing that gets me fired up for their wedding, is that they consider photography an extremely important part of their wedding day. my kind of couple. plus, melyssa and rob love their dog. abby is like their child, so it was only right that abby be included in their e-session as one of the family. we had a great time up on the douglas family preserve and then down on hendry's beach for sunset. i can't wait for their awesome wedding at the santa barbara historical museum!
