The first time I met Tara and Chip I was immediately drawn to their laid back attitudes. They were both super polite, kind, and funny! I knew right away that they were the kind of clients I wanted to work with.
I love that each couple I photograph has such giant personality. I think that the series of images I share with you from their day will fit them even more if you hear their love story. They started out as friends and fell in love over the course of several card games (all of which Tara won, of course. ;) ). Chip stole Tara’s heart with his sense of humor, and shortly after stole their first kiss.
During their engagement, which was a beautiful sunny day at the beach, Chip got down on one knee to propose and began to sink. He literally had to dig himself out of the wet sand to continue with the biggest question of his life!
As you can see, this couple loves to laugh, and they deeply love one another!
I am continually blown away by what a gift it is to not only know the Bride and Groom more throughout their day but to also get to know their family. Their family was one of the sweetest groups of people I have ever had the pleasure of working with throughout the day.
Their ceremony took place at the courthouse in beautiful Santa Barbara. Their reception took place at a gorgeous restaurant! They had a very lovely and simple day. No extravagant decorations or grand entrances. Being surrounded by close friends and family was the complete focus of their day. <3
Tara & Chip: You are both so wonderful. The joy you have for one another is so genuine. Thank you for letting me photograph your day!
