I was so fortunate that I got to collaborate with a whole group of amazingly talented wedding industry professionals for this Santa Barbara, California Styled Wedding Shoot.

We did the shoot on the beach titled  “By The Sea,” and all of the colors, accessories, details, etc. were chosen in order to complement the color palette you would see at the beach. The session was shot at sunset (my favorite time of day for shooting!) and all on medium-format film. The film photography gave the images the soft, pastel look and color palette that we were looking for and really pulled the session together.

One of my favorite parts of the entire shoot is that skirt! I love how flowy it is, and the dip-dyed colors. The blues and grays also mimic and complement the ocean in the background as well, which is exactly what we were going for!

Here’s a list of some of the amazing vendors and contributors that made this session possible:
