Dreamy Couple's Portrait Session in California's Sand Dunes // Siena and Gabriel

We took our dear friends Siena and Gabriel to the Pismo Beach Dunes to photograph their love. The Dunes offered a dreamy, magical, and even mystical landscape to capture this playful couple and their amazing chemistry.  They danced, ran arm in arm, rolled in the sand, and held each other tenderly as the sun set and the light became ever more beautiful and soft. The vast, other worldly quality of the sand made it feel as if the world had disappeared and all that was left was the two of them.


Laura and Eli married at Eli’s amazing family estate in Ojai surrounded by beautiful views of the Topa Topa mountain, oak trees, and citrus orchards. Their day was filled with many heartfelt and meaningful touches. The couple carried on the tradition of marrying on the family land, just as Eli’s parents had done. Oranges, from the very orchard where Eli proposed, were used as part the escort display and as gifts for guests. Even the couple's love of and connection to Hawaiian culture was present throughout the wedding in many small details. It was a wedding that celebrated the couple's family and friends just as much as the couple. We loved capturing all of the details and special moments!

Anne and Robert's vibrant Santa Barbara Wedding

Anne and Robert were married at the beautiful Santa Barbara Courthouse's Mural Room. Their ceremony, attended by their closest family and friends, was intimate and filled with a palpable sense of warmth, love, and joy. After they celebrated with a reception held at the Four Seasons Biltmore Santa Barbara. Their reception design was inspired by the amazing lighting, color, and style of Wong Kar Wai's film In the Mood for Love, which is both one of the couple's and one of our favorite movies. Anne even had her stunning reception dress specially tailored in Hong Kong by Linva Tailor’s founder and master tailor, Leung Ching-wah, the designer who made the dresses for the main character in the film. The night was filled with beauty, laughter, dancing, and an unforgettable tea ceremony. We loved all of the unique details and the rich, vibrant colors of this wedding.
