Santa Barbara California Sunrise Winery Wedding Portraits | Brett & Tori

You never realize how early 4AM is until your alarm clock goes off. And it takes something special to push through, roll out of bed, and get ready three hours before sunrise. This time, that something special was very, very special indeed.

I was looking forward to this shoot before United 2014 even began. These Santa Barbara California sunrise winery wedding portraits were beautifully styled by a team of incredibly talented professionals and lead by Montana Dennis, one of my absolute favorite. photographers. ever. Seriously, ya'll... I can't even begin to explain how fantastic he is, and I honestly spent more time watching the way he works (in the least creepy way possible!) than actually shooting myself.

Thank you, Brett and Tori Benham, for waking up so early to model for us. Thank you, Stacy Childers of House of Style SD, for the beautiful wardrobe.
