Happy New Year! Photography Publications and Honors

To our amazing clients and fans: we love you big time and are so grateful for your trust and support! We wish you a beautiful New Year!


I’d like to share a few 2014 business honors (at the risk of kinda “tooting our own horn”). In December we were featured on The Huffington Post! This photograph was selected as one of Huffington Post’s Top 50 Photographs of 2014 which was pretty exciting (#3 at bottom slideshow). This sweet couple had an international destination Big Sur, California wedding and this photograph was taken at Julia Pfieffer State Beach (more photographs from this stunner and several other 2014 weddings to be shared soon). In 2014, our photography was featured on several wedding blogs and one of our Santa Barbara weddings was even featured on the infamous Style Me Pretty.

Thanks to our amaaazing (!) brides for taking the time to write reviews of their photography experience, we were notified this week that we have won the WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards 2 years in a row! This award places us in the top 5% of wedding professionals for excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism. We aim to offer even better artistic quality, lifelong memories, family heirlooms, and client care.

The highest compliment we can receive is a referral, so if you know someone (anywhere in the world!) who is recently engaged, please send them our way for a complimentary wedding photography consult! We travel all over California and the world for weddings. We are currently booking for 2015 and 2016 and we even have some special referral gifts. We are genuinely excited to spend another year doing what we love: getting to know unique people + documenting all of the love and beauty that life has to offer. May your year be filled with joy!



Style Me Pretty Feature – Santa Barbara Bluffs Estate Wedding

Hi friends! First of all, I know I’ve been neglecting the blog agaain. I had a minor planned surgery in February and I have been doing a whole lot of resting. Many of you sent really sweet well-wishes and I am so grateful! I’m still recovering but I’m starting to feel better and we can’t wait for our wedding season to start back up in May! But on to the exciting stuff for today…

Our photographs are featured today on the loveliest wedding site around, Style Me Pretty California! We are honored that the editors chose to feature our work from this Santa Barbara Bluffs Estate Wedding. There were several very talented wedding professionals working to make this a special day for the bride and groom so make sure to check the feature for their links!
