Allyx + Jonathan are an amazingly loving and happy couple.  He is in the military and could only be home for a few days.  So we gathered up some flowers, headed to the beach and fired away until the sun sunk below the horizon.  So many photos from this E-Session, But I loved the tones in this one, how the sand in the back softly compliments her olive tanned skin.

The bride and groom had a ‘first look’ and we were wandering around the wooded section of the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, looking for cute locations. Along the way I had been looking for a bench for them to sit in, so I could shoot them from behind. We made it all the way to the ceremony site and I thought, hey, what better spot than where they’re going to get married in an hour or so! I had to shoo away the catering staff and florist so I could give the illusion of aloneness…but I love the result. I’ll have to try this again in future.
