John and Channing eloped at the Santa Barbara Courthouse June 18 2019. It was my honor to capture these two in their playful love and unique bond. They were so naturally sweet and in love, and that really comes through in the photos. Here is a short preview video of some of my favorite images! I will deliver these and a few dozen more, and I hope the images along with this slideshow will properly tell the story of this blessed occasion and their special connection on this amazing day.

Here’s a link to more info on getting married in SB at the courthouse! If you’re ready to hire the best photographer contact me today! Elopement packages are $475 and come with 2 hours photography, an online gallery and a slideshow set to music.

It was my honor to witness Kathleen and Scott get married and be there to document this auspicious occasion in timeless photographs. I captured their unique bond beautifully, set against the backdrop of the gorgeous Santa Barbara Courthouse. Their love radiates all throughout the slideshow. Congratulations Kathleen and Scott on your elopement!

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!
