Have you guys ever been to Knapp’s Castle at Santa Barbara? It’s a landmark ruined mansion in the Santa Ynez Mountains. It’s only 1/2 a mile to get to the castle before you park. I didn’t get to take any pictures of the actual castle as my phone was broken at that time but the view was breathtaking. If you haven’t gotten a chance to visit, you should definitely do so. When I went to do a photoshoot there with a friend, we actually became part of a proposal. It was one of the cutest and sweetest things ever. A guy asked his friends from Sacramento to help him propose to his girlfriend by using their van and carrying their couch all the way to Knapp’s Castle. The “couch” has been an iconic part of their relationship where a lot of their first kiss, arguments, asking her out to be his girlfriend has happened. We had to hide along with the rest of all the people who were there when his girlfriends came and came out as soon as she said yes to his proposal. I couldn’t help myself and cried out of joy.

Luckily, before I had to hide for the proposal, I got to do a few test shots because as soon as we finished the ranger came and kicked us out. I was a little bummed because we didn’t get to shoot more but at the same time my heart was happy knowing that I got to be part of something special. For this look, I made a see through tulle white dress. I thought it would go well with the whole castle background but we didn’t get to shoot the whole thing.

What do you guys think about this outfit?

XOXO,

Joy
