Hope you guys all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!!! Happy Monday! Anne and Scott hired me as their wedding photographer all the way from Boston without ever even meeting me! We chatted on the phone about the trials and tribulations of planning a Santa Barbara wedding from 3000 miles away and shared emails full of wedding inspiration. Obviously, showing up to someones wedding without ever having met them is not ideal, so I was so excited when they planned a quick trip to Los Angeles for lunch the week before their big day! Immediately I loved them! Not to mention their amazing planners Dana and Marni Haber of Haber Event Group (they work out of both Los Angeles and Aspen). They had their ceremony at the gorgeous Santa Barbara Courthouse, some portraits at the Santa Barbara Mission and their reception at The Santa Barbara Women's Club, which has some really amazing traditional Spanish Santa Barbara details.
Throughout the booking process Anne talked a lot about her sister Ellen and how Ellen is a photographer and that she had helped weigh in on the decision making process. I was nervous because it's always hard to know you're being judged by fellow photographers and I LOVED Ellen's portrait work which you can see here so I really want her to like me. :)
Oh the first look... :)
Took my breath away..
I asked Scott and Anne to give me their, "I just got married!" face...
With the help of her mom Anne grew all of these succulents during the year she was engaged. Amazing!
Thanks so much for having me as your wedding photographer, guys! You are no longer clients, you are truly truly friends. xoxo
