Sunset Beach Bridal Shoot // Santa Barbara, CA

Good morning!  Hope everyone's weekend was great and for those that had Spring Break, hope you had fun during your holidays!  This Monday we all return to school, work and back to reality... :)

I'm excited to share the first shoot I participated in during my trip to Santa Barbara, California for United 2014 (photography conference).  

We had a beach bridal styled shoot that took place at sunset right on the beach!  I'm in love with the gorgeous light we had.  (It usually rains here this time of the year!... and we don't have the gorgeous palm trees on our beaches here in BC) :)

Aurelie & Sam modeled as one of our wedding couples... and they were naturals in front of the camera... and so cute together!  Aurelie even trashed her dress at the end in the ocean for us in the cold water!

Elodie modeled as a bridesmaid for the shoot.  I loved the gorgeous coral colour of her dress... it gave a tropical feel to the styled shoot on the beach! :)

Karina & Rob were the last couple I had the chance to shoot.  They are also talented photographers !(check them out at KJ & Rob Photographers) and they rocked their session!  

And I can't forget to thank EVERYONE who helped make this shoot happen!  From vendors, to organizing and modeling, all of these people listed below did an amazing job.  Thank you Stephanie for organizing and taking the lead on this shoot!

And last but not least, the styled table and decor!  I loved the seashells and colours picked out for the table, big thanks to Stephanie for bringing it all together! :)
