Jack & Kate, a Garden Engagement

Engagement photos Santa Barbara

I first met Kate at the Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens, where she works, while doing my  Dog Photo Booth at the Gardens’ annual Trails & Tails event. Apparently she liked my photos of her oh-so-adorable corgi Joy so much that she thought of me when she started thinking about wedding photography! I’m so honored to be involved in this way, and I think we’ve had a fun time of it so far.

They chose the Gardens for their engagement session, along with the place they met, Santa Barbara Roasting Co. And (happy dance!) they brought Joy to both locations. Having her involved in the whole thing brought out plenty of genuine smiles and laughter, and I’d hang with her any time.

I’m so pleased with the spring we’ve had this year, and am ecstatic that we got to take full advantage of its colors and the water in the creeks by shooting at the Gardens. I can’t wait to be part of Jack & Kate’s wedding day next year!
