I had so much fun running around Avila Beach with Hayley and Steven during their engagement session. The short time I got to spend with them with long enough for me to realize that these two are as nice as they come. I’m so excited to have the honor of photographing their wedding later this fall at the Beringer Winery in Saint Helena.


Megan & Scott at Holland Ranch

Oh how I adore weddings just like this. Megan and Scott wrapped up everything that they loved into one day and shared it with their family and friends. Holland Ranch was the perfect setting for everyone to get together to celebrate their union and also enjoy some amazingly yummy tacos, photo booth shennanigans, great music, some Sweet Lucie’s Ice Cream (it was beyond good) and an assortment of coffee concoctions straight from the coffee bar. It was non stop fun from start to finish and I loved every minute of it!

I loved everything about Maggie and Evan’s wedding. The courtyard ceremony at the Old Whaling Station, the guests being escorted by musicians to the reception, the farm tables (oh how I just love rustic farm tables!), not to mention the super charming reception venue and did I forget to tell you about the ice cream sundae bar?!? Yup, everything about this day would make anyone smile from ear to ear. To take a peek at all of their bits of perfection view their wedding slideshow above.

Alexis & Patrick at Montecito Country Club

Little did these two know that when they attended a mutual friends UCSB graduation party in 2007 that they were going to meet the loves of their lives that night. Although it ended up taking them a few years to realize it. They both ended up moving to San Francisco that fall and lost touch with one another, it wasn’t until two years later at Alexis’ 24th birthday party that they reconnected and began dating. Fast forward a few years later they were engaged on a beach in the Hamptons. Make me swoon why don’t you?! Doesn’t that sound dreamy? It only made perfect sense to head right back to where they first met, where Patrick grew up, and where he attended college, to get married.
