melyssa and rob's wedding at the santa barbara historical museum

melyssa and rob's wedding was so much fun to shoot! their love for each other was so obvious through out the day, plus everything about the wedding was exquisite. from the gorgeous santa barbara weather, to the unique succulents in the floral arrangements, to the rustic santa barbara historical museum. but, i am most thankful to have been a part of melyssa and rob's wedding because of who they are. they are kind, patient, and fun! how can you not enjoy being around folks like that!

no email.... :(

i'm in the process of launching my new website...but one of the casualties of this seems to be email. i can't receive any emails for the time being. so if you've sent one to me recently, please resend it when all's well - hopefully very soon. i'll post here when email is working again. if you urgently need to contact me, call 805.259.7955 or send a text to that same number. thanks!

thalia and brett's wedding at rose story farm

i was so honored to shoot thalia and brett's wedding at rose story farm. not just because they are both great folks that are easy to get along with, but also because they are both world class athletes that represented the united states at the 2004 olympic games in athens. they met at ucla where they both played water polo, and the rest as they say is history - inlcuding thalia winning a bronze medal at the games. did i say "wow!" yet? once you get past the whole "olympian" thing, you realize that thalia and brett are nice, genuine, kind, fun people and everyone at the wedding was having a blast! rose story farm arranged all the flowers, and i was thrilled to shoot at this beautiful venue. rose story farm is the top local grower of garden roses, so if you are having garden roses in your bouquet and you're getting married in the santa barbara area, then you'll like have some of their roses in your arrangement. the farm house was gorgeous, and obviously the grounds were beautiful.
