It used to be that I would poke fun at my sister suggesting she was a hippie (she’s far from it) but the more life moves forward, the more I look for adventures and new things to try, the more I think I might be showing my adventurous side through some hippie-esque means.
I’ve enjoyed Kombucha for a number of years now – but it wasn’t until I was hanging out at my buddy Jesse’s a month or so ago that I was introduced to “The Mother” – aka the SCOBY.
It doesn’t take much for me to get addicted to something new (can we say that I’m game to try nearly anything three times?)
Looking forward to bottling a ton more of the next few months!!
Sean and Julie’s wedding at the Riviera Country Club was such an elegant affair. The day started with Julie getting ready at her mother’s private estate in the Pacific Palisades.
Sean got ready and hung out with his groomsmen nearby the estate at the Riviera Country Club. His personality put everyone at ease, especially Julie as she was a bit nervous about her wedding day flowing absolutely perfect. They are such a good match for each other. I love the story of how they met… the short version is that he was parked near her and couldn’t help but admire her BMW (and she his Porsche) they struck up a conversation and the rest is history!
I love this expression of joy and anticipation as Sean waits to see his bride for the first time.
After the wedding ceremony was over, Sean & Julie, along with their guests headed over to the Riviera Country Club to celebrate the evening with dinner, dancing & music from a live band that sounded exactly like the Gipsy Kings, so fun!
Today we had the honor of photographing Steve and Mira’s wedding at the Heartsone Ranch in Carpinteria, CA. This is our second Heartstone Ranch Wedding and as always, the ranch provided for a beautiful backdrop.
Steve and Mira are two of the sweetest and most relaxed couples we have ever had the chance to create story telling imagery for. When it came time to create some beautiful photos for these two at sunset, I was excited that we were able to combined Mira’s love for horses and Steve’s sense of humor into a few photos including our own take on American Gothic.
We look forward to sharing the rest of Mira and Steve’s Heartstone Ranch wedding photos in the weeks to come.
What started out as an inquiry about wedding photography has blossomed into a great friendship…
Tim has had the chance to get out and golf with Buff who is super talented and an excellent instructor. It’s actually his fulltime job. You’ll often find him at the La Cumbre Country Club giving instruction to young aspiring golfers.
They’ve also had us over for a pizza making contest between friends. While Anh isn’t a professional chef, she makes a mean pizza and loves to cook.
For the morning of the wedding day, Anh got ready at a private estate in Montecito with her bridesmaids.
I just love her gold sparkly wedding shoes, so pretty!
Anh’s parents used this Volkswagon bus as their getaway car on their wedding day, and they still own it! So it was only appropriate that Anh use it on her day as well. Talk about having your “something old”!
Buff and Anh were married at Elings Park, also where Tim and I got married! Anh spent countless hours putting together the finishing touches for her wedding. One of those being this wedding sign here in their colors – yellow & gray.
Afterwards, Buff and Anh brought the celebration to La Cumbre Country Club for their wedding reception. I love this shot Tim got of Buff and Anh waiting outside the doors to be announced.
We were able to steel them away for a few pictures at sunset for their wedding at La Cumbre Country Club.
Chad and Shaina’s Napa Vineyard Wedding was one that Tim and I will never forget. The day started out with Shaina surrounded by her dearest friends and loved ones, a small gathering when considering her ability to make us feel like family when we first arrived. This day was set aside just for them, the rest of their many, many friends were invited to the Santa Barbara reception (more on that to come later).
Everything took place at a family friend’s private estate at a Napa Valley vineyard, one of Tim and I’s absolute favorite places on earth!
Chad hung out with his best buddies nearby, but out of site, at the Napa estate’s vineyards. Tim’s ability to connect with the guys allowed for some incredibly fun memories for Chad with his best friends.
