Four Seasons Santa Barbara Wedding : Rose+Joe

Photography

As we walked through the terracotta hallways of the Four Seasons Santa Barbara, we laughed and joked with each other. The day was gearing up for a fantastic wedding, so naturally the conversation led to Meg’s upcoming wedding as well. I had the opportunity to second shoot for her and it was the first time we worked together. As we walked the hallways it struck me–ohsweetbabyjesus–that Meg will see my entire body of work…firsthand, untouched, and in all its unedited glory.

It was the first time I photographed a wedding alongside a future bride of mine. Whoa, the pressure.

Thankfully, Rose and Joe were a slice of perfection. And so was their wedding. They’re two of the most amazing, creative, beautiful souls I could work with and I was honored Meg invited me to shoot their Santa Barbara wedding. The day was filled with love, joy, and happiness and I thankful to simply stand back and document the day as it unfolded…

The day started fabulously…I mean, a pair of Valentino’s and a cathedral-length veil? Yes, please….

The only thing that could make photos at the Four Seasons Santa Barbara better is a Monique Lhuiller wedding dress hanging in one of its windows…

Rose just shined as she got ready for the day…

After a few minutes hanging out with the girls, I went to Joe’s room…

…there I found his nieces looking quite adorable…

I had quite a bit of fun shooting this little fella before the ceremony…

The Santa Barbara light played just gorgeously on the Four Seasons’ wedding lawn…lovvvved it…

One of my favorite moments of the day…

Rose made a radiant bride…

Camille of Modern Day Design put together a simply perfect bouquet…

After the wedding ceremony, we roamed the grounds of the Four Seasons Santa Barbara with Joe and Rose for more wedding pictures and had a blast…

The light was simply divine…

Here are a few more detail photos from the the amazing Modern Day Designs and the ever talented Yelena of the Stylish Soiree

I’m particularly fond of the Stylish Soiree‘s acute sense of detail…I’ll be working with Yelena for Meg’s wedding and I’m so, so excited to see all her ideas come to life!

Kissing…her husband…

Kissing…her father…

Something about the photo on the right makes me feel like a nod to a different place and time…

The First Dance…

I’ll close this blog post with the following wedding photo…a little dark and moody, but I kinda like it…

Happy Monday!
