Santa Barbara Engagement Shoot - Juliann and Michael

Gabriel Ryan

when they landed in santa barbara [aka God’s little piece of heaven on earth… at least that’s my opinion], they probably planned to meet some new friends at their new school, westmont. and they probably hoped to walk away four years later with a solid education, a stronger relationship with their God, and a handful of experiences they would be able to recall forever with a smile. and when juliann & michael [or jubu & marvin as they refer to each other nowadays] first crossed paths at westmont it didn’t seem they would become much more than just good friends, which was all part of the plan. for the first two-years of their friendship, michael had a girl-friend. and then, when michael finally hit the market as a now-eligible single-dude, juliann had found a boyfriend, which lasted a couple years.

it wasn’t until about four years after landing in santa barbara that their stories changed. their stories became their story.

maybe it was somewhere in the middle of the thrift store, searching for the perfectly hideous “ugly Christmas sweater” or maybe it was somewhere inbetween the appetizer and the entree during their first date at california pizza kitchen… but somewhere it happened.

a boy fell in love with a girl. and the rest will be history.

i was thrilled to take the trip up the coast to the 805 to photograph juliann & michael’s engagement at the coronado butterfly preserve [yes, santa barbara has a wilderness park strictly to protect & preserve our winged little friends]. they will tie the knot later this summer on my favorite stretch of road in the whole world between santa barbara & san luis obispo, at zaca creek ranch. and i can’t wait…
