Max & Sarah - Villa Montara Wedding

I first met Max when we were both 16 years old, in our awkward teenage prime. He loved silly adventures, make believe, and had a sense of humor unlike anyone I had encountered in my short life -- therefore, we were fast friends. Fast forward 12 years -- we lost touch somewhere after high school, and since then so much of life has happened to both of us. Max moved to Japan and became a teacher, where one spring under the cherry blossoms, he met Sarah. And as the fate would have it, I had since become a wedding photographer -- bringing our paths to cross once again. The universe is quite the snarky, mischievous gal.

And so, Max & Sarah were married surrounded by salty sea air and the closest of their friends & family. She wore her grandmother's dress & crown, and he couldn't peel his eyes off her for a moment. The day couldn't have been more perfect - cozy overcast vibes during the day, with a sunset that set my heart on fire.

Rick & Kelly - Boulder, CO

Thanks to these lovebirds, Phoenix got to go on her first airplane last week.
Now, I LOVE California landscapes. But shooting with these Colorado colors, views, and light -- A DREEEEEEAM.
Oh, and Rick & Kelly might be the cutest thing things baby's bottoms (and I would know).

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.
