Helen and Mark’s wedding was a lovely celebration to remember forever! They were married by dear friends at Mark’s work, the Salvation Army church. The reception was at the historic El Paseo restaurant. It was a beautiful fall wedding and I’m so lucky I got to photograph these two love birds and friends!

Hi I’m “Santa Barbara Barbara” and I’d love to give you the insiders tips on getting married in Santa Barbara!
Hiring local vendors is always a great idea, but hiring a local photographer is even more valueable! Local photographers are at home near your location, and have ample opportunities to scout out the location. In my case, the case of “Santa Barbara Barbara” I am well aquainted with the many wedding venues in Santa Barbara. I know the lighting, the best places to shoot your wedding party photos, and how to get around town. I can suggest backdrops for photos that will enhance your gorgeous hair and makeup with lovely warm light! I have connections to other vendors in town, and I can offer recommendations.
If you are having a Santa Barbara destination wedding, you can’t go wrong with ‘Santa Barbara Barbara’ at your service! I can give you restaurant recomendations for brunch the next day, sights you shouldn’t miss while you are here, and the locals secrets I will only tell you after you hire me! Ha!
Whether you are a local or coming into this gorgeous city to get married, hiring a photographer that knows the local venues, parks and beaches in invaluable! Feel free to call me anytime to chat about why I’d choose September over June (did you know its gloomy much of June in SB?), and a wealth of other information that will make your special wedding day even more fantastic!
