This time of year is too good to not be shooting up here on the central coast! This shoot was for my good friend and wedding coordinator, Laura Robertson, of Touch of Style Events, who of course helped coordinate this shoot for her daughter with bright colors, candy, costumes, and doves. As always it was a pleasure!

I shot Lauren Christensen’s wedding in 2007 and when we shot her sister Chelsea’ wedding last summer we reconnected and I was stoked to hear about her vintage bridal hairpeice company, Lobomeme, that she had spearheaded! Last week we got to coordinate on a much anticipated shoot for her new spring line. We teamed up with our amazing florist next door, Corinne of Panacea Floral Event Design who ran with Lauren’s inspiration boards and created whimsical bridal bouquets. Reeda Gorham went to work and prepped our models with unbelievable lashes and flirty fun makeup and Skylae Johnson was the mastermind behind the whimsical hairstylings, both from Faces and A La Mode. Wardrobe was largely from Lauren’s vintage collection wardrobe, and the beautiful lace dress and slip, and the tea length tea dress and sash were shipped in from Maine from Kara Wilbur’s new bridal gown boutique Sweet Love. Laura Robertson of Touch of Style Event joined us as well to help coordinate day of details (including the live doves!) and throw in her always appreciated style tips. To top if off we got to shoot at two of my favorite locations in San Luis Obispo, the Santitarium Spa (you have to see this place to believe it!) and the majestic Montana de Oro eucalyptus groves. Thanks to our models Alexa and Kassie, and Necia for assisting with lighting. Sophie and I took turn shooting the models, check out her blog as well for more pictures from the day! It was a blast getting to work with so many amazingly talented and creative professionals and good friends!

Last weekend I got to shoot Jake and Katie’s wedding at Elings Park in Santa Barbara. It is a gorgeous location for a wedding with an amphitheater overlooking the town and with ocean views. And what a gorgeous and fun couple! The beautiful peonies bridal bouquet and floral decor for the day way done Laura at Passion Flowers. Make up was done by Trish McEvoy, and the event was coordinated by Cori Lassahn with Avante Events.
