Samantha + Josh’s Santa Barbara Anniversary Session

Santa Barbara Anniversary Photographer

I loved spending time with Samantha and Josh at Butterfly Beach in Montecito, California. They are such a fun and loving couple – and we have so much in common! Josh is a military pilot (my husband is too), and we found out that we even have some mutual friends in the military world. Samantha and Josh eloped in San Francisco a few years ago, and they were kind enough to let me photograph an anniversary session for them.

I absolutely loved the Jenny Yoo dress that Samantha chose for this session – the color was perfect for the warm colors of the sunset that evening. Nicole with Hint of Chic created the most spectacular bouquet, full of huge peonies. I can photograph flowers all day long, especially when they are one of Nicole’s creations!
