Thank you to all my clients who made it possible for me to receive the 2018 Wedding Wire's Couples choice award! I am so honored and appreciative!!
We headed down to The Barber Shop in Santa Barbara, Ca for Lincoln's first haircut! He did great! So did the Ito, his barber who had to cut Lincoln's hair in about 7 different locations around the shop...kids NEVER stop moving!!
Every year these two fun couples do holiday photos together with their little boys! This year was so much fun especially since now they are moving around on their own two legs!
I love holiday photos especially with little ones! We had so much fun getting these shots!
Wow! This couple was so amazing! Their love for each other was very apparent. Their ceremony included guests and it was lovely to see how much support and love they have from their family and friends. Congratulations to you both!!
I had the honor of photographing two very sweet and lovely people getting married. Sean and Sumika are so perfect together and I loved learning about their love story. Both of them make me laugh! They were so easy going and their wedding was amazing!! Congratulations to you both!!
Toni and Jason met at Taco Tuesday and the rest is history! I loved this adorable couple. They were so fun and it was a crazy day at the Santa Barbara Courthouse! There beautiful reception was at the Four Seasons Biltmore in Santa Barbara, CA.
Lauren and James were so fun to photograph! They are in the middle of so many new changes and adventures and getting married is one of those adventures that will last a lifetime. Congratulations to this lovely couple!
I had so much fun photographing this group of young adults. They were so funny and down for anything! Prom is such a crazy time for teens! For most, it's the final celebration before they part ways and adventure out on the next chapter of their lives. There are always those people that you never lose touch with. Here is a group that I'm sure in 10 years will still be in touch with each other.
I had the honor to photograph Patrick and Georgina become husband and wife at the Santa Barbara Courthouse. They met in L.A. a couple of years ago and since Georgina was from England they had a beautiful long distance courtship for some time. They obviously have a deep deep love for one another. It was so lovely to photograph them as they vowed to share their lives with one another. Congratulations to you both!!!!!
I photographed a lovely young woman who was staying at the beautiful Four Seasons Biltmore in Santa Barbara, CA. She was from Oregon and they had been having so much rain that she had not been able to get her senior portraits done. So...why not have them done in paradise at the most beautiful resort in Santa Barbara! We had so much fun!!!
I photographed an event for a group staying at the Four Seasons Biltmore in Santa Barbara several weeks ago. The event was at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum. The Four Seasons Biltmore catered the event. Bella Vista Design did the beautiful set up and Allied PRA did the event coordinating.
I have been asked by Color Services Photo Lab in Santa Barbara to "take over" their Instagram account for a week. The theme is "Photograph Your Love". I will be some of my series of Fine Art Abstract Seascapes. I hope you will follow along and enjoy as I share some of my favorite pieces. Here are a few of them I posted yesterday!!

Senior portraits are so fun! It was planning to rain and it did, but then suddenly right as our photoshoot was about to start, the rain stopped and a rainbow appeared. Drew and I had fun at this cool spot. He was such a natural.
Last night as well as photogaphing the sunset, I went back just before midnight and photographed the ocean by moonlight. The moon was nearly full, and the surf was crashing. It was so beautiful and peaceful. It felt like I was a million miles away.

Gracie is my bundle of joy! She is my 12 year old Australian Shepard who has loved me and played with me and let me take a ton of photos of her as you can imagine. I love hanging out with her!!!
I am always looking at the afternoon sky, wondering if it is going to put on a magnificent show at sunset. Are there clouds in the sky? Is there a fog bank forming? Is the tide low or high? I get so excited when I know tonight is the night!!! In addition toloving Wedding Photography, I also love taking abstract seascapes! Here are a few from the other night.
Lucky Me!! I photographed this lovely couples wedding and they called me back to photograph their growing family! I love having that connection with couples! Thank you! And congratulatons on your little bun in the oven!
