I feel so fortunate to have met Brooke and Brett. The amazing Wedding Kate introduced us just one week before their wedding day because of some last-minute changes, and I’m so glad I was available for their date.
Their classically-elegant Four Seasons Santa Barbara wedding was overflowing with show-stopping florals by Casa Blanca Event Design, and Brooke and Brett are so enveloped by love from family and friends. It was a magical honor to be witness to their celebration. Happy tears, the fastest (but one of the most incredible) beach sunset sessions I’ve ever shot, and a stunning bridal fashion change later, and this couple reminded me why I’m so smitten with my career choice.
I actually drove from Phoenix, Arizona to Santa Barbara, California the morning of their wedding day in order to make it work, and even with a crazy detour through Joshua Tree to avoid halted traffic from a semi-trailer truck accident (yes, I DID have an intense morning, haha!), it was one. hundred. percent. worth it.
Thank you, Brooke and Brett, for trusting me so completely with the last-minute change to your wedding photography plans and for being all-around rad people. On to the photos.
It was totally as fun as it looked!
