Joleen and Kemper – Engagement

June is halfway over and “wedding season” is here in full swing. This is the time of year when everything goes bananas! Unfortunately, I can’t blog everyone I photograph because there simply isn’t time. With that said, I wanted to share with you a wonderful little shoot I did recently with Joleen and Kemper. These two surprised me by bringing along their tandem! If you follow my blog, you know that cycling is my hobby and that I really love all things bike-related.

Joleen and Kemper will be married next summer in Lompoc at the historic La Purisma Mission. I am very excited for this wedding as I have never photographed a wedding at La Purisma Mission and from what I’ve seen, it’s gorgeous!

For those interested in finding out more about La Purisma Mission, I am pasting information I gathered from their website below.

“Founded in 1787, the La Purisima Mission land holdings once covered nearly 470 square miles. Bordered by the Santa Maria River in the North and the Gaviota coastline in the South, the land was home to the Chumash people and Spanish settlers. The mission was best known for its hides and blankets, and its inhabitants herded as many as 24,000 cattle and sheep.

Today, history lives at La Purisima. The most extensively restored mission in the state, La Purisima hosts over 200,000 visitors each year for recreation and a chance to explore California’s heritage.

In addition to the restored original buildings, the nearly 2,000 acre park is home to 25 miles of hiking trails, a modern Visitor CenterĀ and Exhibit Hall, and livestock.” (
