It came a couple weeks early. Eighteen days early to be exact. Sure, my one-year wedding anniversary to my best friend isn’t until the 28th, but it felt like we commemorated it last night.

As life sometimes serendipitously works, JD and I walked into to Pascucci to meet with David Jay and a group of photographers from his Brooks Weekend Seminar. Because of the large size of the group, everyone sat at different tables. Just then, JD and I were escorted to a small table for two.


The table where we sat was the same table we sat at seven years ago on Valentine’s. Our first trip together to Santa Barbara. Never could I imagined back then how many twists and turns my life would have taken since then. But somehow—sitting in a smoky Italian restaurant seven years later—I couldn’t be happier.

JD and I drove up yesterday for a night-shoot with DJ and his students. And though DJ thanked us profusely for our assistance, it was us who felt blessed. I doubt many of DJ’s couples have him shoot their one-year anniversary, so I was especially stoked to work with him again…and the AMAZING group of photographers who accompanied him.

Here are a couple pictures from DJ’s blog:

JD and I spent the rest of the evening at the Andalucia. The lovely desk assistant upgraded our room, so our first experience at this hotel was phenomenal. If you’re in Santa Barbara soon, I’d recommend this hotel in a heartbeat…and the rooftop pool/bar has awesome views of State Street. Be sure to check it out, even if you’re not a hotel guest ;)
