Casey and Rochelle decided to have an intimate destination wedding in Santa Barbara and I haven’t been as excited about a destination wedding in a long time:) First of all, I love the West Coast so much and travel to LA/Malibu area annually but this time I actually got to stay in sunny Santa Barbara and it was so relaxing! The light by the Pacific Ocean is seriously something else! Second of all, Rochelle found me on instagram and it was a perfect match! It’s always special when the couple loves your work for what it is without the need for pinterest boards and shot lists because as a creative documentary photographer I do my best work when I have your trust to capture the day naturally and in my own style.
Most importantly, Rochelle and Casey are just wonderful people so documenting their laid back celebration was joyful and emotional at times which is everything I hope for on a wedding day:) They exchanged their vows in the garden of Santa Barbara County Courthouse, which is an architectural beauty, and finished the night with an intimate reception dinner at Villa and Vine.
