Would you believe that it rained cats and dogs for over 7 days straight as this tent installation was happening? It felt like a nearly constant downpour and everything was soaked beyond belief. It was r-o-u-g-h!! Behind-the-scenes is rarely glamorous, but this week in particular was a muddy mess. But on the other side of the mud, when it all comes together and the final touches are in place - who cares if it's raining sideways outside?! The beauty is in the details and the celebration is in the atmosphere - all made possible with a great team of vendors and pros who will bend over backwards to do an outstanding job, come hell or high water. Have a solid weather plan, friends. And have a team you trust to execute it. There's no better investment.

You're invited 💌 to take a peek at Lauren & Dylan's wedding (recently featured on @brides!) now on the Gather Together blog! If an invitation suite should set the tone for the event, this custom design by @oneandonlypaper rang every bell. Deep tones evocative of fall in the south, with just the right touch of black for elegance. The modern vellum wrap and wax seal complemented the organic leaf and watercolor design. What a treat it must have been for guests to open, and a perfect preview of Lauren & Dylan's reception to come!

Beautiful corners everywhere on the estate, drenched in wonderful sunlight. Now the busy summer months are behind us we can welcome new clients to enjoy everything we have to offer here. Have you booked your viewing yet ?
Alexa has the most infectious smile 🌻
Seriously happy 😊
The rings these two made are by far the most symbolic and treasured I have seen so far. Made from sea glass from both their homes, heirlooms, and symbolizing adventure together. Can’t wait to see where their love takes them.
Thank you to everyone who has inquired about the new venue in Montecito, California. I’m excited to be managing, and be the primary coordinator for this stunning property, while still planning many events at other beautiful venues in Santa Barbara. The response has been tremendous and I’m looking forward to showing the property to several potential bride and grooms next week! Email [email protected] if you’d like information.
How have you spent your weekend? Hopefully it's involved some form of fun with family or friends making & creating memories 🌈 This often challenging balancing act, is so therapeutic, when it does work! 🌟
Stylish + Adventurous. Pretty much how I define this couple. Their style was on point 👌🏼 We took them away during their reception to get these beautiful images. If your timeline does not have enough time before or after ceremony for romantics(couple’s photos), consider 10-15 minutes at sunset to get some epic photos!
Okay! It’s great to have amazing looking clients(all my clients are beautiful), but what’s even more amazing is when they have kind and loving souls. That’s exactly what I can say about Monica and Adrian. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know both of them since their wedding last July!
Monica is the best mother and Adrian loves his girls so much. And can I just say how much I’ve loved spending time with them at Disneyland!
It’s Sunday night and I’m sending out some location recommendations for my new clients engagement session. This is a good location but these two made it 😍From shooting their engagement to their wedding, it was so smooth. They are obviously my dream clients. I have to say all my clients are my dream clients though. They chose me, but I very much chose them back. It’s a mutual thing and I love it.
I’m terrible at posting, but you already know 🤷🏽♀️
It’s hard for me to just post a photo with just a random caption that has no meaning. I invest into every one of my photos. I invest into every couple and person. It’s a good thing until I have to post and get overwhelmed with all the things I want to say to you all! Because if you are a fellow vendor, past client, potential client, or photography lover, I want you all to know my heart and my love for photography and you all.
That is all for now. ✨✨✨📷❤️
For all you Downton Abbey fans, here's a romantic British venue, @davenporthouse that we think rivals the Grantham estate. ⠀
Just imagine your family and friends sipping cocktails at a summer reception on the lawn... ⠀
The perfect ceremony spot for this fall Aspen wedding. Every part of the wedding took place outdoors at a private estate. There's really no better way to do it in Colorado. ⠀
