There’s nothing like photographing a couple in love. It’s such an honor to help people capture such a special moment in time in their lives. I was lucky enough to kick off my Santa Barbara photography journey with Elizabeth and Justin, a super sweet loving couple who drove up from Los Angeles to spend the evening together and document their story.
Elizabeth and Justin are eloping in Hawaii (swoon) this year and will be moving to Georgia afterwards. It was incredibly important to them to showcase their time in California in our session. SB is a favorite spot for them so we made sure to hit up some special spots for their engagement session that truly captured Southern California vibes. We started at West Beach by Stearns Wharf to spend some time by the water. Then we strolled through the colorful Funk Zone to see the art and murals sprinkled between the breweries, wineries, and restaurants. And finally, we walked up State Street to include some Spanish colonial architecture and tile detail (many thanks to Paseo Nuevo for their stairs and Paseo de la Guerra for your courtyard). So lucky to be in such a gorgeous place and to meet really lovely people like Elizabeth and Justin.
