Rachel + Tim ~ Santa Barbara Zoo
You really can’t go wrong with the two locations I shot at for this wedding. Both the bride and groom got ready at the Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara, which offers generously sized suites and cottages, with luscious greenery surrounding the buildings. Then there is the Santa Barbara Zoo, where their ceremony and reception were held. They had the entire zoo during the after hours and guests were allowed to walk around the zoo during the cocktail hour and visit the exhibits. Tim and Rachel were even allowed to feed the giraffes. This couple was a lot of fun to shoot and always seemed to be laughing and smiling. The chemistry between the two of them made for great “in the moment” photos. Lastly, I’d like to give thanks to my assistant shooter, Isaac, for helping out with this wedding.
