Wedding photographer at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, CA. Santa Barbara wedding photographer. Mandy and Curt.

Mandy & Curt were married at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, CA. The incredible natural beauty of this place is incomparable and taking wedding photographs is a wedding photographer’s dream come true! This is where The Kennedy’s used to stay on vacation and many other celebrities have gotten married at this beautiful hotel.  The wedding images were very edgy and fashion forward for wedding imagery as Mandy works in the fashion industry and had a lot of input into how she wanted her wedding photos to look.  I also love love love fashion photography so it was so fun to shoot her photos and have her pose in an editorial way.  We used mostly natural light during the pre ceremony for their couple shots but did a lot off camera flash for the reception wedding photos.  Such a fun to shoot this couple at this iconic hotel!

 

Wedding Photographer at Renaissance Lodge Sonoma. Annie and Chris

What a fantastic venue the Renaissance Lodge in Sonoma, is to get married at!  You can use their gorgeous lobby to produce Annie Leibovitz type wedding photos of your bridal party or utilize their driveway as an incredible backdrop for your wedding images of your family photos.  The courtyard is exceptional for your wedding ceremony and the light is perfect to capture your vows on camera.  Such fun and playful images were captured of Annie and Chris….I particularly love the photo of Chris getting caught in Annie’s veil when we were taking the couple photographs right after the ceremony.  We had a blast taking all these fun and artistic wedding photographs!

Wedding photographer Marin Art and Garden Center, San Anselmo, Marin County. Melissa and Greg.

The Marin Art and Garden Center has the most gorgeous flora and fauna and to have your wedding here is the best idea ever.  Such gorgeous color everywhere that pop in your wedding photography and the light shifts in highlighting all the plants to make sure your wedding images are artistic and gorgeous!  Melissa and Greg were so sweet during their first look together.  I loved how Melissa turned into a little girl and it was really sweet to get to document such a moment on their wedding day!  Much love to both of them.
