Rock n Roll Sophistication

Rita & Hai’s wedding portraits had me at hello. From her incredible summer dress from Barney’s CO OP that was altered to be a wedding dress, to her flower sash which was custom made by Pish Posh on Etsy and her Diba shoes from Nordstrom. Her bridesmaids wore beautiful silk chiffon Taryn dresses from J Crew and Hai donned a Michael Kors suit with a Burberry tie, J Crew socks and Converse All Stars. The whole thing just screams Rock n Roll sophistication!

Dance Like No One’s Watching

I have to say there is something about Danie & Ilene’s wonderful wedding that makes me totally and completely happy…I can see why Ilene wore ballet shoes – she must have been spinning around all day with joy! The wedding took place at the sunny South African venue of South Hill. Ilene wore a Robyn Roberts  dress with her ballet shoes and looked everybit the ballerina princess.

Sneaky Sunshine

Heather & Neil’s sunny, yellow and turquoise themed wedding was actually not as sunny as it appears! While the wedding party got ready it poured with rain, yet luckily for all, when it came to the portraits (which I heart) the sun shone. Great photographs like this will make any wedding day look happy, relaxed and sun-filled…even if it’s pouring with rain!

Homegrown Sunshine-State Flavour

Bonnie & Cabe’s Santa Barbara engagement session is the perfect prequel to their wedding, also in Santa Barbara, this summer. However when the couple first told photographer Paul they wanted their engagement session to be at their apartment and favourite local spots, he was actually kind of worried that the photos would turn out less dynamic and exciting to what he usually likes to shoot. He needn’t have worried! The session took place on the most beautiful sunny winter day and with Bonnie, an artist and photographer and Cabe, a musician, he was set up for the perfect shoot for this creative couple.

“They were coming up with a ton of ideas and remained chill and jovial all day.” Paul explains “You know how sometimes the photos we admire and look back at the most, are often the most basic … sitting on the couch, talking with a friend, etc. I think we nailed it. They also really wanted to emphasize their California roots … we’ll see even more “homegrown” sunshine-state flavor at the wedding this July for sure!”

Drowning in Sun Light

Makah & Andre’s engagement shoot makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside; and as I sit here in my Slanket and fingerless gloves (I kid you not) I am so excited that they shared them with me! The South American couple met at the party of a mutual friend and they got married in December. After seeing these I am very excited to see their wedding photographs now too…I hope they make me feel just as snuggly warm.
