Lori and Bobby in Santa Barbara
I love shooting engagement sessions in locations that have real meaning for the couple, Lori and Bobby have tons of history together at UCSB so what better location to shoot? You don't have to twist my arm to get me down to the beautiful town of Santa Barbara! In the middle of a January heat wave with a hot couple? Even Better! I went to Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara for photography school so it's always nice to get back there.
Stephanie (my wife for those that don't know) decided to join me to assist. It was her birthday so we figured we'd go out after the shoot (at Los Olivos Cafe). We met up in Isla Vista and headed right into campus. There must have been 20 new building on campus, it was pretty crazy. Sure would be nice to sit in class and look down the beautiful Santa Barbara coast line!
Lori and Bobby were super nice people and a ton of fun to get to know. We went all over campus and even shot in the library where Bobby worked for several years. Next we went to a couple different beaches (that were packed because of the gorgeous weather) then back to campus for some night shooting.
I can't wait to shoot the wedding this summer at Gainey Vineyards in Santa Ynez, it's going to be amazing!
Gotta love night shoots!
Lori looking gorgeous
super wide angles sometimes are fun!
Out in the fields...well, actually not but it looks like it :)
Making out in the library... If only all studying was this fun!
Gotta love sunset in California!
I love this shot, so much fun shooting at night!
This is a totally funky building with all these fluorescent lights that cast some very interesting colors.
We had a blast hanging with you guys and can't wait for the wedding!
