Bacara Wedding in Santa Barbara| Ryan and Tiffany

We had the pleasure of photographing Ryan and Tiffany’s wedding at the beautiful Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara. The Bacara is the epitome of luxury and a photographers (and brides) dream wedding location. The first thing I noticed as we pulled into the large circular driveway was the beautiful fountain. I knew I wanted a picture of these guys in front of it at night. We met Alex, the event coordinator, who was awesome to work with and she graciously gave us a quick tour of the property before we began shooting.

As I was walking around Bacara I just kept getting inspired for picture ideas and I was looking for the right place to stage the “Reveal”. The Reveal , or First Look, has really become a popular addition to the wedding day and we love it when a couple decides to add this moment. It allows us to have more time with our clients for creative picture taking and we are able to photograph the majority of family pictures before the ceremony. This is great for both the couple and their families who wish to enjoy some of their cocktail hour with their guests.

I began taking pictures of Tiffany and her bridesmaids who were getting ready in the suite. They were such a fun group and it’s always funny to see the difference in 8 girls rushing to get ready vs. 8 guys getting ready. I sent Andrea over to take pictures of the guys and she found Ryan enjoying his gift of a fine bottle of Johnny Walker Green Label 15 year old scotch with his boys.

Next came the moment of them seeing one another for the first time that day and it was staged perfectly. That set the tone for the day as we enjoyed the ceremony on the bluff overlooking the ocean and the beautifully decorated reception that followed. Great tunes by DJ Matt Gudis kept the crowd dancing in a separate candlelit lounge room after dinner. This area was so cool with a dance floor, sofas to lounge in, and even an outdoor fire pit. I loved that setup.

Thanks Ryan and Tiffany. We had a blast!

    I’ve been viewing several wedding photographer blogs in search of a good one for my own wedding next year in Santa Barbara and I really enjoy your photos! The angles, lighting, everything-just perfect. This wedding must have been a beautiful one to shoot, gorgeous bride and groom! The Bacara as well seems like a great place to hold a wedding (expensive much?). I can’t wait to start diving into the major details of my own wedding that will hopefully take place in Santa Barbara. I have a lot of family coming in from out of town and I’m looking for places to put them up in. I recently discovered a great hotel-the South Coast Inn (www.goleta-hotel.com). Elegant as well as inexpensive! Loved it.
