On a sunny Saturday morning in late August, I headed down to Santa Barbara to shoot my first solo wedding. John and Ágnes connected with me through our mutual friend, Ali, and their casual, gorgeous day turned out to be just my style. I was a little nervous, because I'm used to partnering up with my friend Sarah to do wedding photos, but the couple and their lovely family and friends welcomed me right on into their group and made me feel totally at ease. They got married in the Mural Room of the Santa Barbara Courthouse surrounded by an intimate group of family and friends, and afterwards we all spent time outside, laughing and talking, while I snapped photos. It was one of those perfect Southern California days; blue skies, pretty people, and lots of love. Thanks for inviting me to spend time with you on your special day John and Ágnes!
