Mid-February isn’t too late for a “Best of 2017” post, right? Valentine’s Day seemed like the perfect day to make it happen! I loved reliving all the fun of last year as I put this together. I had the honor of photographing some seriously awesome couples in some pretty spectacular places including Telluride, CO as well as up and down the west coast including Santa Cruz, Big Sur, Santa Barbara’s wine country and the Oregon Coast. Like I said, a fun year! Here are some of favorite images of some pretty cool memories we created along the way. I can’t wait to capture a whole new set of amazing moments with for this year’s equally awesome couples!
Stephanie and Toven were married in late September at a private residence in the heart of Santa Barbara County’s wine country. It was a perfect setting for their intimate, heart-felt celebration that was beautiful, elegant and just the right amount of rustic.
Their wedding day was a little extra special to me because I have known both of them for ages and I was so happy to see them tie the knot. I was so thrilled they asked me to photograph their day and think the images capture so many of the loving, funny and tender moments throughout the day.
2017 was filled with lots and lots and LOTS of great shoots and I am slowly but surely working my way through blogging as many as possible! Today I’m sharing this sweet outdoor photo session with the Luu Family. They were all so sweet and loving but little Bryce and his red shoes were especially adorable! I loved that I was able to capture so many soft, light, candid moments for them and, as his mama Jaymie so perfectly described, I loved that the photos captured Bryce’s playful spirit.
