Petaluma family Portrait Photographer. Petaluma children’s portrait session. Jax and Ellie.

The energy level of the two of these kids is beyond any scope you can imagine.  Especially Jax.  He is truly remarkable and so full of personality that if I could bottle it I would be a billionaire.  Cutest family ever…just love Annie to pieces.

 

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!
