Stephanie and Brandon | Santa Ynez Valley

For Valentine’s Day weekend, Stephanie and Brandon came up to the Bacara Resort & Spa where they will have their wedding in May. On Saturday we drove up to the Santa Ynez Valley for a late-afternoon engagement photo session, stopping at Classic Organic and the Sunstone Winery on our way to Firestone Vineyard.

Greeting me like an old friend, we jumped in their loaned vehicle and headed up Hwy 101. Both Stephanie and Brandon’s parked cars were crashed into by someone in a restaurant parking lot the night before. They looked completely relaxed. I doubt that I would take it in such great stride. Thank you for making the trip up to Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez.
