I can’t express enough what a pro Barbara is. My experience with Barbarazzi/Fine Heart Photography was superb. Her direction, eye for color and lighting, and her fantastic demeanor made it a breeze. The proposal and payment processes were also remarkably easy. She brought out the best in our families for the wedding. It was also a cultural (nontraditional) wedding but she learned the key elements of the event and took just the right photos the whole way through. Don’t look anywhere else for your Santa Barbara photography needs.

Barbara has a gift! We were so lucky to work with her for our engagement photo session as well as on our big day. The pictures turned out stunning and I can’t thank her enough. Barbara’s fun energy and passion for photography makes the entire experience so much more fun. Dan and I couldn’t stop laughing……
She truly loves capturing love, and it shows. Thank you so much Barbara!

Here is what my clients are saying about me…


I wish there were more stars to give, because Barbara with Fine Heart Photography deserves SO much more! If you are looking for someone who is enthusiastic, passionate and fun to shoot with, look no further. I shot with Barbara in August and she made me feel like a rock star. I’ve shot with a lot of photographers, specifically in the pinup genre, and I have never been more relaxed and confident than I was during our session. I’ve looked through the photo gallery, and keep going back because I’m supposed to pick my favorites, but they are ALL my favorites! I had just gotten back from a vacation full of indulgences and wasn’t feeling particularly sexy beforehand and I left after our photoshoot feeling like a babe! If you wanna feel empowered, beautiful, and confident, you just have to spend a few minutes with Barbara. She exudes positivity and it is contagious! I love how she gives her subjects feedback, direction and encouragement while shooting. Her attention to detail during photoshoots is highly evident in the final product and makes for photos that are just asking to be framed and cherished for years to come. Making her clients happy is something Barbara doesn’t take lightly, I can tell. She aims to please, and boy does she ever!

Barbara photographed me and my boyfriend just before sunset the other evening. We met on location by Los Carneros Lake- she was right on time! It was such a FUN and comfortable experience. It feels like she is an old friend snapping photos of completely natural occurrences, all the while still coaching us in ways to make our bodies compliment one another in the frame. Barbara is the perfect combination of fun and professional. Her photos? Fantastic; she encapsulated the way we feel about one another in a still image. Her personality? Lively, professional, fun, and CREATIVE! I’d give her ten stars if a could. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Thumbs up, Barbara, thank you so much!

–Nicole V. Santa Barbara

OMG! Barbara from The Barbarazzi is amazing! I wish I could afford to have her follow me around my life. I have never enjoyed having my picture taken and I am always miserable when I catch a glimpse of photographic evidence of my life. I hate photos, they never look right. BUT HERS DO! She made me feel so good about myself. I never knew I could take  a good photo – she made me look beautiful. I can’t thank her enough. I can’t wait for my prints. I will never hire another photographer now that I have found her!!!!

–Kelly W. Santa Barbara

Barbara is a true professional and master of her craft. She shines as an artist, capturing those endearing moments that you thought only existed in (insert any rom-com title here). I’m impossibly photo shy, and Barbara knew exactly how to diffuse my anxiety (with unlimited patience and witty banter!). I’m incredibly grateful I had Barbara capture my wedding day, and you would be doing yourself a disservice by not hiring her to capture at least one event in your life!

Chole – Tulsa Ok

Barbarazzi is a fun, feisty and fabulous photographer! She makes you smile and captures your true beauty. She makes you feel so great about yourself and has energy for days! You can tell that she is very passionate about her work, the evidence shines through. Highly recommend!
