Being a Santa Barbara photographer has given me the unique opportunity to not only watch the love and relationships of my brides and grooms blossom even after their engagement, but also capture that beauty and love as a Santa Barbara photographer with irreplaceable photographs.
Having met Kasey a few years ago when as a Santa Barbara photographer I was shooting a wedding with a fellow photographer in Ventura but a few months before her and John were engaged to be married we met again at their cousin’s wedding which I was photographing. As we were also neighbors at the time, we hadn’t gotten to know each other well but the Santa Barbara wedding of Suzanne and Keefe, of which I was the Santa Barbara photographer opened the door for communication. John is a pro-golfer and the La Cumbre Country Club was the ideal wedding location for Kasey and John, and for this Santa Barbara photographer, a location whose open spaces of the greens coupled with the warmth of the bougianvilleas, which doubled over from their engagement session at my favorite Montecito beach, Hammonds Beach. Side note: Hammonds Beach in Montecito is one of my favorite places to be as well as photograph. The neighborhood streets surrounding Hammonds Beach are quiet, romantic and the pathway to the beach with the blooming bougianvilleas is nothing short of magical, even for this Santa Barbara photographer with many beautiful options in Santa Barbara County for photography.
Congratulations Kasey & John… what a privilege and joy to know you both.

I was honored to be part of Michelle and Dave’s wedding day at the Bacara Resort here in Santa Barbara this past summer. Being a Santa Barbara Photographer, I am continually inspired by the natural beauty of Santa Barbara and the couple’s and families that are drawn to enjoy various seasons of their lives along the coast of California in Santa Barbara. Meeting Michelle and Dave last Spring at the studio who orchestrated this relationship, the studio of Fotoceilo in downtown Santa Barbara, I almost couldn’t contain my excitement as they shared their special and unique love story and their loves and enjoyments as a couple and then their plans for their Santa Barbara wedding at the Bacara Resort. Meeting for their engagement session at one of my favorite Santa Barbara beaches, I got to know this sweet couple even more and my excitement just grew and grew for their coming wedding day. The wedding day was flawless and absolutely gorgeous. Starting with the details of Michelle’s exquisite Monique Lhuillier dress to the beautiful flowers designed by Juniper Presence, the depth of love from both Dave and Michelle’s closest friends and family was felt and expressed in every way imaginable. Watching this interaction of this couple my heart melted, Dave’s tenderness and attentiveness to his wife in the midst of the excitement and business of the wedding is one of the defining memories I have of this couple, as well as Michelle’s trust and love for her husband seen so clearly in her eyes and through her tears as she watched the mother and groom dance.
I’m continually blown away at the amazing couples and families I get to photograph and work with. Being a Santa Barbara photographer in a community that facilitates beautiful celebrations of love and life, I am thankful for the personal relationships I get to develop with my amazing clients, whether it’s Wedding Photography or Family Photography, life is a journey and these seasons should be remembered and cherished.
many many congratulations + much love + peace to your hearts | xoxo | katee grace | http://kateegrace.com |
