National Destination Wedding Photographer | Santa Barbara Courthouse Wedding

My favorite thing about each wedding I photograph is the couple’s story… their love story. I get to know my couples over the course of our time together. However, I have known this couple for many years. Tyler is Cosmo’s sister and Brendan was his best friend shortly after we started dating (over six years ago!!!). I have known them throughout their relationship and I was so thrilled and honored when they asked me to photograph their beautiful Santa Barbara wedding. They were married in the Mural Room at the Santa Barbara Courthouse and had their reception at Arts and Letters Cafe and danced the night away at Sullivan Goss: An American Gallery.

I am so happy that Cosmo and I were able to be included in your special day in such a special way. We love you both so much! Congratulations!!!

Ceremony: Santa Barbara Courthouse Mural Room
