On New Years Eve I had the honor of photographing Chellana and Brandon’s beautiful Santa Barbara wedding at the Double Tree Resort. As I entered her bridal suite, what struck me first was how beautiful Chellana was. She looked like a younger Carrie Bradshaw, from Sex in the City, and once I saw her wedding dress and jewels I knew that her looks weren’t the only thing she and Carrie had in common- nope…this woman was a total fashion plate. Not only is she wildly stylish, but she’s a freakishly good dancer, too. In fact, she’s a professional dancer, choreographer and dance teacher. As one might imagine, her and Brandon’s first dance was utterly extraordinary; an all-out explosion of sequins, smiles and showmanship. But as incredible as the show-stopping dance numbers were, the deep, joyous love that Chellana and Brandon share for one another and for their precious baby son, eclipsed everything else about the day. Thank you, Chellana and Brandon, for inviting me to play such a special role in such a special day. It was an honor and a total blast.
