Santa Barbara Women’s Club Wedding | Natasha + Greg

Natasha + Greg are one of my absolute FAVORITE couples of the year! They are just so sweet, caring and fun loving that it is always a joy to be around them! Their wedding at Rockwood Santa Barbara Women’s Club was no different! Natasha wanted a stress free affair, which is a tall order when we are talking about a **wedding** after all, but some how she pulled it off! There were so many cute DIY details handmade by Natasha and her family. The very talented Hint of Chic filled in the gaps with some gorgeous floral arrangements! Sophie of Amazing Days Events made sure the day was coordinated perfectly, adding to the stress free vibe! And Pure Joy Catering provided some dee-lish eats! Natasha and Greg were surrounded by many friends and loved ones, but chose to forgo the traditional bridal party which added to the laid back vibe! And they did a First Look so we could do as many photos as possible before the ceremony, which left plenty of time to party after the ceremony concluded!

All in all it was a truly fun, bright, gorgeous and relaxed fete and I was so pleased to document it! I wish all weddings were as stress-free as this one was! hehe!

Special thanks to Kelsey for 2nd shooting!

Firestone Vineyard Wedding Photography | Samantha + James

Samantha + James were another one of my favorite 2014 couples!! These two came all the way from Canada to get married in beautiful Santa Barbara Wine Country at Firestone Vineyard, and boy was their day nothing short of amazing!! First of all, Sam + James hired a dream team of vendors which included Hint of Chic doing full service event design, florals and all the planning, Haute Catering on food & beverage, Town & Country on Rentals, La Tavola for linens and Bella Vista for lighting design! So of course this event was going to be a beauty, and it was!

But also the day was perfect because Sam + James are perfect. These two are so sweet and so in love. They were so happy that this day they had dreamed of for so long was finally coming true! They were surrounded by their closest friends and family only, which made the wedding so intimate and personal. You could really feel the love that was there! At the reception, there were lots of laughter and happy tears during toasts, and crazy dance moves once the party got started! But the best part was seeing the way Sam & James looked at each other… you could tell they were over joyed!

Thanks to Kelsey for 2nd shooting! Check out the awesome photos & swoon worthy details below!

Santa Barbara Baby Portraits | Lawson at 6 Months

Hold on to your seats… this might be the CUTEST  photo shoot you’ve ever seen!!! Seriously though, Lawson’s 6 month styled photo shoot was nothing short of ovary-tingling adorableness. Between his little Chef”s outfit and the cakes his momma made, and his funny faces, you just can’t not look at these photos and melt a little! I’d love to do more baby shoots just like this because I mean really. Just look at him!

You can see Lawson’s newborn photos here, and his 3 month photos here! Isn’t it so fun to watch them grow??!!

You may remember his super cutie pants newborn portraits, and this kid is only getting cuter with age! I guess he got it from his too-cute parents!;)Anyways, check out the photos below!

Godric Grove, Santa Barbara Wedding | Brenna + John

Brenna + John are such a sweet couple and were married just over a week ago at Godric Grove, here in Santa Barbara! Brenna + John are former wedding photographers themselves so it was a HUGE honor to be able to photograph their big day! And what a lovely day it was! From the scenic venue, nestled in hills which overlook Santa Barbara, to the beautifully written vows, to the fun bridal party to the sweet details… all was perfect! Brenna looked like a dream and beamed with joy from inside out! John was glowing with happiness as well! And these two just gazed at each other and smiled all night long! It is such a pleasure to work with such kind, caring, sweet people and Brenna + John are definitely one of the sweetest couples I’ve ever worked with!
