Bryan and Samantha, along with their very closest friends and family, traveled to Malibu California for their destination wedding. They held their ceremony and reception at the picturesque Saddlerock Ranch Winery. When Craig and I were asked if we would like to travel with them, I thought, ‘photograph Samantha in sunny California at one of the most beautiful venues I’ve ever seen? Why yes, I think I can make that happen.’
This was the site for their ceremony, it overlooked the mountains, and just beyond the ridge line was the ocean.
Bryan and Samantha opted for a first look, and this was the first time they saw each other.
They exchanged rings privately so that we could have them for the photos.
Samantha is the most beautiful woman, both inside and out. She’s generous, kind and has the sweetest little voice.

First kiss! I love the grasp that she has on his jacket.

Craig captured this amazing photo of the first dance.
Craig also captured this fun image of everyone dancing. Motion blur intended.
A few of my favorite details.
Thank you, Samantha and Bryan, for inviting us to be a part of your incredible wedding. I consider it an extreme honor to photograph weddings, especially when commissioned to travel.
