Santa Barbara Courthouse Wedding

I’ve known this groom before his cowboy boot laden feet could touch the floor from the church pew. It’s amazing watching kids grow up and find their life partner. Even better to get to photograph it. So when Caleb asked if I would do the honors of documenting he and his fiance, Sam, tie the knot, I of course said yes. The Santa Barbara Courthouse was the perfect venue for their summer nuptials, full of fine historic details and lush greenery. We meandered through the busy walkways of downtown, to a little Mexican restaurant, where they fed each other chips and guac and visited with their close family and friends. Beautiful day and start to the rest of their lives together. Congrats, friends! Enjoy this glimpse into their sweet soiree.

Fableist Winery Wedding

What can I say about Amy and Jason, other than they are SO FUN! They wanted their wedding day to be one big, beautiful party and that is exactly what it was. Surrounded by their favorite people, they exchanged vows under a massive oak in the glorious vineyard of Fableist Winery in Templeton, California. The weather was perfect, the rosé was flowing and the people were happy. What more could you want on your big day? Congrats to Amy and Jason and all their family. May you grow old together, still smiling and laughing all the way.

Riley & Nolan, Chapel Hill Wedding, Paso Robles

Chapel Hill is a private little Mission-esque church in Shandon, California. A place where you gotta know someone who knows someone to get access to. Nolan happened to know someone. Pretty well. He grew up in the golden hills surrounding the chapel so naturally, the little church on the hill was his for the day. It couldn’t have been more beautiful. We had some gusty winds to contend with (which made family pictures very interesting!) but the dramatic sky was unforgettable. Riley is a fantastic winemaker (Hubba Wines) and good friends with the L’aventure Winery family so they hosted the reception and they partied all night in the west Paso vines. It was one classy rager and I was so grateful to be a part of the day. Enjoy this little peak into their lovely day.
