Santa Barbara Proposal at Sunset on the Mesa 

 
This is the first Santa Barbara proposal I’ve ever photographed and I have to admit – it was pretty amazing.  It was fun to show up beforehand, pretending to be a random sunset photographer, then at the last minute, just after an audible cue, whipping around to catch Kelley’s reaction to Jonathan’s proposal.  Jonathan is also a skilled craftsman and handmade the box in which he presented Kelley with her engagement ring – there was all kinds of special involved here.  And, of course, the ever faithful Sandy was there to witness and bless the event.

Fun Stevens Park Engagement Session with a New Puppy

Sometimes when two people decide to join their lives in marriage, they are deciding to join some of the best parts of their lives as well.  This Stevens Park engagement session became a ‘new family session’ as well and it couldn’t have been any more fun!  Nor could it have been a better way to capture all of the love that will be coming together with this new family.  The Fall colors and covered trails at this park were a wonderful, colorful choice for this session.

Murphys Ranch Engagement Session in the Fall

 

I grew up in and around Murphys, long before I ever had a thought that I might one day be a photographer – let alone a wedding photographer.  When I made the trip North to photograph Kellie and Chauncey’s Murphys Ranch Engagement session I had a number of exciting realizations.  The most inspiring of which being that I would be able to bring all of the experience I had gained during 8 years as wedding photographer, and apply it to a whole new area with a whole new feel.  I can’t wait to return for their wedding in July…
