Sharing a few favorites from a styled shoot that I had the pleasure of photographing over the summer.  When I found out my lovely friends Leah (all the way from Australia!) and Elan would be in town, I just knew we had to put something together so that we could play and talk shop.  As photographers there is almost nothing that we enjoy more than taking beautiful images of happy people.  So–enter the amazing Crystal of Shindig Fancy.  She whipped this shoot together in just a couple of weeks and I am so so thrilled with the results.  Thank you, thank you Crystal!!

Be sure to take a peek at a lovely spread of images from this shoot featured in the latest issue of Magnolia Rouge Magazine, starting on page 166!

A Montecito Elopement

We recently had the pleasure of collaborating with a slew of amazingly talented vendors to bring to life our version of a beautiful inspiration board created by Jen of Green Wedding Shoes.  We are slightly obsessed with the boards she creates, and this Bohemian Beach Wedding board is no different–gorgeous!

When we were setting up for our shoot we just so happened to be in the right place at the right time.  Jack Johnson (yep, you read that right–Jack Johnson!)  was surfing right in front of us and decided to come ashore and head home.  Totally threw us off kilter for a bit, but thankfully we were able to pull it together and get back to work!

Now–on to the images….



This shoot is featured on Green Wedding Shoes today–be sure to head over there and take a peek.  A huge thanks to everyone who helped bring this vision to life.  We couldn’t be more thrilled with the results!

Limoneira Ranch

Last fall we photographed a gorgeous event at Limoneira Ranch.  The event was a mixer put on by the local chapter of  The Association of Bridal Consltants (or ABC), and it was so much fun to be a part of.  The ranch itself is a beautiful wedding venue, and we were thrilled to find out that they recently added us to their preferred vendor list.  To view more of our images you can take a peek at Plated Events By Chef Jason’s site–the exclusive caterer of Limoneira.

Because we are so excited to photograph more events at this gorgeous venue we are offering a free engagement session to the first couple that books with us who is getting married at Limoneira.  Know someone who fits the bill?  Spread the word…we’d love to chat with them!

Now–on to the photographs of the October ABC dinner.

Etsy Love: Lo Boheme Garters

We love Lo Boheme, and we have posted about them before.  But did you know they make exquisite garters as well as amazing head pieces and other accessories?  They do, and they are to-die-for.  So chic and incredible…I would get married all over again just to wear one!

There are so many pretty quotes and posters on Pinterest.  It has become a constant source of inspiration for us!  We love the idea of creating signs of loving words to use as decorations for your wedding.  When the big day is over they can be framed and used as decor in your home–a gorgeous and sentimental way to begin adorning your new lives as husband and wife.  Check out our board for more loving words.
