Carlton and Paola’s Santa Barbara Destination Wedding

Carlton and Paola contacted me for their wedding on the ULTIMATE date! Lead Day!!!! How freaking fun is that! I actually wanted to get married on Leap Day, but then I found out I’d have to wait over a year longer to get married, and so I said scratch that. So, it worked out perfect and I was still free to photograph this super fun wedding!

And, the coolest thing, Carlton and Paola gave me something like 3 hours alone with them after the wedding ceremony to do photos of the two of them all around Santa Barbara!! They also made my day because they were super stoked on having us shoot black and white film for them! (we’re shooting more and more film at our weddings and it’s just sooo beautiful!)

Check out their slideshow here to see a ton more really fun pictures!
