Santa Barbara Engagement Photography | Rita + Ryan

I am so excited to share these photos from Rita + Ryan’s engagement session which we shot in Santa Barbara! Rita and I go way back! We went to high school together. And we kept in touch through…FACEBOOK! Duh! So Rita would follow my career and photos, like a true fan! When she got engaged to the wonderful Ryan, she contacted me immediately to see if I could photograph their 2013 wedding! Of course, I was excited and delighted! 🙂

Rita and Ryan are so adorable together! They make each other laugh and smile so bright! And when Ryan holds Rita in his arms, she just melts. Which you will see in the photos below! These two are definitely a perfect pair, and I’m so stoked for what’s to come for them! One thing that made this shoot extra fun, was that we went all around Downtown Santa Barbara— from the Courthouse to Alice Keck Park, to Leadbetter Beach! We got to explore the beautiful town together, and Rita had just the perfect outfit and props to match each setting! Rita also wore some dazzling accessories, like a Tiffany’s necklace and some hot Louboutin pumps– both of which I learned were gifts from Ryan! SWOON! I love that Ryan adores pampering Rita! So sweet! 🙂

We started off at Alice Keck Park! How stunning is Rita!!??!

I told you these guys were sooooooooooooooo cute together!

The Louboutins! I could really photograph loubies all the time!!!

Rita is extra fierce in her fabulous shoes!!

I love these two shots. One is diva and one is just plain ADORABLE!

We ended at the beach as the sunset! I loved Rita’s flowy gown and the way her hair blew in the breeze! Fabulous!



As the sun finally set, we finished off with some top model shots! I mean how ridiculously hot is this last set?!
