Chloe and James got married at the historic Lavender Inn, located right in the middle of downtown Ojai, CA. This is the first time I’ve ever photographed a wedding with a “whale” theme, and it was pretty darn cute! It shows Chloe and James’ creativity and sense of play, which made them such a joy to work with.
Chloe and James came down from the Bay area to get married in her hometown of Ojai. One of her favorite places in town is Bart’s Books, a VERY unique bookstore. We decided to do some fun portraits there, to celebrate her love for the place.
