i heart my groom : Santa Barbara Wedding Photographers » a site honoring all types of love

Every season we are blessed to work with amazing people!  Have you ever received an email while you were working that just brightened your day? Well, this happened for us on a regular basis for us.  From the very first email with Kiersta we knew that we were working with someone amazing! Her love of life and all that she surrounds her self with made this wedding one of our top for the year!  Throughout the day we would capture moments where Marshall was just looking at his beautiful bride. So in love and really there is nothing better than seeing that!  It is a feeling that you can almost touch.  There was unbelievable full moon that lit the night as wine poured, friends and loved ones danced, and even Kiersta’s beloved dog, Roycie, walking all around as the party continued into the night. To Kiersta and Marshall!

There is something so magical about the hills of Santa Ynez!.. Am I right?!?! The hills are sun kissed in only a way that happens here. Kristi and Zack’s wedding was a beautiful light filled day and we are so happy to have been apart of it.

It has been ages since we have had a good rain fall! Am I right?!?!  Well last January we were blessed with a wonderful bride and groom who didn’t let the rain stop their outdoor ceremony.  Moments before the wedding they made the decision to keep the ceremony outside.  The rain had all but stopped and they made the call.  Guest were seated to a cloudy view of the LA mountains and it was so cozy and romantic.  Sam, all the groomsmen and bridesmaids made it down the aisle but the moment Christina walked out with her father the clouds opened up and started to drizzle.  The drizzle slowly turned into a bit more of a rain and the ceremony ended with friends and family huddled together under umbrellas to stay dry.

Being California wedding photographers it is easy to have perfect weather all the time.  We get used to always having golden light and not having to juggle umbrellas, bags to cover our cameras and wondering if at any moment will our camera stop working?! Every wedding is special, moments happen and they can be out of our control.  When these moments happen we tend to find a bit more love than we were expecting.
