As a destination wedding photographer mostly shooting in my home town of Steamboat Springs Colorado, I was overjoyed to travel to the stunning property of San Ysidro Ranch near Santa Barbara California.
I was fortunate enough to shoot Julie and Todd's Fall engagement which really started our bond that often eases up the shooting process on wedding day.
What started as a fairly large wedding slated for July in Colorado got bumped up to an intimate (20 people) celebration over a long weekend in late March in cool Montecito California, also home of the Santa Barbara Mission.
My wife accompanied me out there assisting and mingling from the rehearsal dinner at Cava Friday night to the intimate, early evening affair at The Wine Cellar on the San Ysidro Ranch.
We owe all the out of state preparations to Kelly Clark Leonard of Events of the Season. She was amazing to work with and even catered to my wife's gluten intolerance for our meals. Thank you all at San Ysidro Ranch and Cava Restaurant!
The soundtrack to the wedding was provided by the amazing Anthony Ybarra
