Chelsea + Josh

   I was so excited when Josh + Chelsea’s Wedding Day arrived!  These two had their beautiful Wedding in Santa Barbara, CA.  With a stunning first look near the beach, a ceremony site with views of the mountains + ocean, and a day full of love and joy. Their Wedding was literally out of a dream!  

Here’s a recap of their love story:

Josh and Chelsea’s love story starts where they met, which was at Azusa Pacific University during their junior year in a class taught by a professor who was one of Chelsea’s favorite teachers and the one professor Josh feared the most. They did a few in-class assignments together, barely spoke, and then didn’t talk again for almost a year despite living in the same apartment on campus. Then, through mutual friends and the journalism program at APU, they met again during senior year and connected over drinks and a love of many common things. 

  A few of my favorite details of their day were the stunning decorations, Chelsea’s dress <3, and their beautiful reception site. 

Chelsea + Josh:  I loved working with the two of you! I am so thankful I got to be apart of your day! I know that your marriage is going to be so full of laughter, good books, and love! :) 

Mikyla + John

     Mikyla and John are two of the sweetest humans I’ve ever met!  These two were wonderful to photograph, not just because they were deeply in love, but because they were so laid back and full of peace the day of their Wedding! 

A few days prior Mikyla contacted me to tell me that they had to change Venues because of the fires in Santa Barbara county!! I could not imagine how stressful that was for this couple, but they handled it like champions!

Their Wedding day took place in dreamy Santa Barbara, with one of a gorgeous beach ceremonies I’ve had the pleasure of photographing.  (The arch you’ll see in the pictures was hand made by Mikyla’s Uncle!! )  The rest of their reception took place only a feet away from the beach at Chase Palm Park!  Their day was full of laughter, dancing, love, and delicious dessert. 

John + Mikyla:  Thank you for letting me be apart of your day! Your love is so sweet for one another, and I know that your marriage will be full of joy and thankfulness for one another.


San Diego Wedding

   I was so excited when Jenny + Erik contacted me to photograph their Wedding Day! I had never been to San Diego before and was thankful for a great excuse to come and explore the city!  

 It was so much fun to work with a couple who was so in love with one another.  One of my favorite parts of their day was their first look.  There was gorgeous dappled light, and the second these two saw one another they didn’t need any direction from me.  They were immediately at ease with one another, and it made my job SO easy! <3 

Their Wedding took place at a gorgeous venue, BRICK! ( >>>   From the twinkle lights to a beautiful location, to an amazing couple in love; their day was out of a dream!   Also, make sure to check out their dessert table!! Jenny is a chef and made everything by hand. 

Jenny + Erik:  Thank you for allowing me to be apart of your day! You were both a joy to work with, and I wish you a joy-filled marriage.
