April 1st, 2016 was a beautiful day for Juliana and Mohamed to get married at the Santa Barbara Courthouse. They are such a fun, awesome, and thoughtful couple, with the best sense of humor and the sweetest family. I was so honored that they entrusted me to photograph their special day in beautiful California. Their love and the love they share of family is inspiring, both families were extremely welcoming and we all had so much fun!
Their thoughtfulness can be summed up in this one of many examples… The morning of the wedding I was pleasantly surprised with a plate full of chocolate covered strawberries and a note written on the plate with chocolate syrup that read "Happy Birthday Paola". To be honest, I had completely forgotten it was my birthday until that moment. I started crying and laughing a little bit, well because, that's what I do. Simply put, I was just so incredibly touched. My couples are always the best. I don't know how to stress this enough, I LOVE MY JOB! Here are some of my favorite images from that day.
