Santa Barbara Vow Renewal {Lukas and Suzy}

October 16, 2014

Lukas and Suzy are an amazingly talented husband and wife photography team. They also happen to be great friends of mine. So, when they asked me to photograph their 5-year vow renewal, it was an absolute honor and joy! They are such a great example of love and a Christ-centered marriage, and photographing this life event for them was so special.

They started off the day with a first look on the very beach that they got married on, in the very spot where they did their first look on their wedding day. They then proceeded to collect some sand from the beach and write an entry in their memory book.

We then set sail on a boat, for the exchange of vows. Lukas and Suzy read their renewed vows, while sailing along the Santa Barbara coast, on the most PERFECT day. It was truly beautiful.

Following this, we headed to the last event of the day…the castle! Nestled in the hills, is a gorgeous ruin, that makes the most romantic setting. Lukas and Suzy shared a dance, to “I Choose You” by Sara Bareilles, as the sun sank below the horizon, concluding their magical day.

Congratulations on 5 years of amazing marriage. It is only the beginning! Can’t wait to see you guys welcome the next 5 years and your new journey into parenthood. xo
