Chantéa and Michael are just two people who fell in love and by the looks of these beautiful photos, their love is still thriving! After falling in love in college, getting married, and creating 4 beautiful children, they reached out to Santa Barbara photographer, Sarah Vendramini, to capture their everlasting passion! They were swept away to the coast to have a "baecation" in beautiful Santa Barbara and took Santa Barbara photographer, Sarah Vendramini, along for their ride! She spent the day getting to know them and here's what she had to say! 

"I was over the moon when Chantéa reached out and wanted me to photograph her together with her husband here in Santa Barbara. They have been college sweethearts which grew to be parents of 4 amazing children! Of course, it comes a time when couples need time for themselves, so they decided to come from Fresno and enjoy the Santa Barbara beaches for their "Baecation".

Because I love to get to know my couples, I get so excited when listening about how they met or fell in love. It is what additionally fuels my passion and inspires me to portray their chapter in life. From the photos, it is obvious that these gorgeous souls have many tales that spark their joy!"

"Their story:

Michael noticed Chantéa in his senior year and said immediately that she was the one that he was going to marry! It took him 2 years to go on a date with her because he was very shy. Chantéa on the other hand always thought she'd end up marrying a football player, but we all know the ending of that story!

On the last day of school, he told her that he is going back to LA, and she cried. After hugging her, he left and they didn't exchange phone numbers but later in senior year when she was working at the mall; he courageously approached her and she finally gave him her phone number. They went on a date the next day and had their first kiss! After that, they just couldn't stay apart!"
