It was such a pleasure to take the photos of Alicia & Travis in Santa Barbara. It's not every day you get to take photos of people who have already been together for almost eight years before taking the next step to becoming husband and wife.
While walking on the beach, we chatted about how they met and how they reached the point of becoming engaged.
I got to hear everything about how when Alicia first met Travis, she shrugged him off and it took him over three tries to successfully ask her out. This really surprised me since they are such a great for fit for one another. Hope Ranch Beach is truly a special spot for their relationship; everytime they'd get into an argument they would come to the beach and not leave until they had settled their differences. This really echoed with me about how committed they were to each other and their relationship. I'm so lucky to be photographing their wedding this coming August!
