Brett & Nastassja - Santa Barbara, CA

Welp, it's official. Elopements are my new favorite thing. It's all my favorite parts about a wedding, without the stress or the timeline.

Daniel & Stephanie - Santa Barbara, CA

Daniel & Stephanie have a seriously long history, and there wasn't a single person at this wedding that wasn't OVER THE MOON to see them finally "tie the knot." Even a perfect stranger would have been able to see that they are meant to fit together - being together is like breathing to them. They are connected in a way that is impossible to put into words. So here are pictures instead.

Mikey & Fiona - Los Olivos, CA

As a wedding photographer, it has been one of my worst fears that I would unexpectedly get pregnant and have to cancel a wedding. I don't take it lightly when a couple chooses me as their wedding photographer -- I consider it an INCREDIBLE honor. There are over 100 wedding photographers in my local industry alone, and I know it is not an easy decision. So you can imagine my dismay when I was told I was due to have a baby 3 weeks before Mikey & Fiona's wedding. Now, most couples would be excited for you and your bun in the oven and carry on with their wedding plans. But not these two. The email response I received in turn, blew me away. And I quote, "Here’s an idea, and let us know what you think. We are so in love with you as a human being and with your work…and we are having trouble imagining our day being captured by anyone else. If we were to push the wedding back, would you be going back to work by then?"

YOU GUYS.
Mikey and Fiona CHANGED THEIR WEDDING DATE just so they could keep me as their photographer.

I could go on and on about the beautiful energy these two put out. They are kind (they let my mom and Phoenix totally crash their wedding), beautiful souls. And I hope we get to stay friends FOREVER.

Erik & Shermin {Avila Beach, CA}

You would never know that gale force winds claimed both Erik's kippah and Shermin's veil at one point during this day.
Not even a hurricane could keep these two from their perfect wedding day.
