Carlos + Angela || Wedding

I had the pleasure of helping a friend shoot part of a wedding a couple of months ago in Santa Barbara. I shot the groom’s prep as well as the first few minutes of the reception. I don’t really have any photos of the actual wedding (since I wasn’t there), but I do have a handful of images from what I did shoot that I thought I’d post.

Jennine + Eddie || Engagement

Jennine & Eddie’s engagement shoot took place on the beautiful monarch butterfly preserve just outside of Santa Barbara, CA. Just stepping out of the thin layer of woods, up a slight incline, you are met with a enormously large expanse of empty plains that end in cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It’s an amazing spot to walk, think, pray, enjoy a quiet walk with a friend or loved one… or, of course, have a photo shoot. I really enjoyed shooting there, and will miss that place when we’re gone.

Carissa + Tom || Wedding

Carissa and Tom’s wedding was in Santa Barbara at the Biltmore Hotel which sits on one of the most beautiful beaches in Southern California… Butterfly Beach. I often miss living in Santa Barbara, but looking back at photos that I’ve taken there does my heart good.
