Last year when I was still weighing the pros and cons of moving myself (and my business) across the country, 2013 seemed like a vast abyss of unknowns. Chicago had been my home of 9 years, and had treated me so well…what would the future hold in California?

This. Documenting this warm, funny couple in one of the most beautiful natural settings in the country, on one of the happiest days of their lives. Having visited Santa Barbara years earlier and been awed by the landscape, I never would have imagined that one beautiful June day in 2013 I would be photographing a gilded mosaic-filled church set in the mountains, and Gainey Vineyard nestled in the rolling countryside. It’s all so quintessentially California and representative of the natural beauty here that I find inspiring. I think I held my breath the entire day waiting to wake up. It wasn’t until the end of the day on the drive home that it all sunk in how incredible this wedding was, and how fortunate I am to have been asked to document it. Brian & Aline, thank you so much.

More of this amazing wedding can be seen in their feature on Inspired by This!
