What a special wedding this was. Samantha and Josh are such warm and giving people, and so very much in love. They had a wonderfully intimate wedding with only 20 or so guests at a beautiful private residence in Santa Barbara, aptly names The Oasis. Surrounded by their closest family and friends, they had a relaxed and romantic celebration. One of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer is all the incredible people I get to meet, and meeting them on such an important day in their lives is such a gift. The families of Josh and Sam, and of course the couple themselves, were endlessly kind to me and made me feel like part of the celebration. I mean, I’ve never had a bride insist I have some of the wedding cake and even try to find a tupperware to take some home to my husband. So much sweetness and love.
