Oddly enough after Allie had booked me for she and Matt’s engagement portraits, we randomly came face to face at Santa Barbara Parks & Rec beach volleyball playoffs. Don’t worry, there was no blood shed…perhaps just a few tears after her team beat mine in game three. 😉
Anyway enough of the random side note. Matt and Allie hail from Raleigh, North Carolina. They are living in Santa Barbara while Matt completes his PhD at UCSB and they wanted some Santa Barbara inspired engagement portraits to accompany what I’m sure will be an amazing wedding back in Raleigh next year.
Our first stop on this beachfront Santa Barbara portrait tour was Chase Palm Park.
We then headed to East Beach to get some great iconic portraits with Stearns Wharf in the background.
Why not then have some fun under Stearns Wharf?!
Holy cow Santa Barbara, your adorable little inns lining West Cabrillo Blvd offered some great portrait locations for this utterly adorable couple.
Congratulations Matt & Allie, you guys are one great couple!
