It has only been such a short time from our wedding and we are still so in awe of the work Doug did. He recommended two photographers for our wedding and even though I didn't think it was very big and necessary, I'm so glad I did! He and Bryan were able to be at different locations and have different views and it was perfect! They were easy to get along with, funny, personable and everyone loved them. The pictures came out absolutely incredible and the turnaround time to completion was impressive. They captured all of our requests plus things we wouldn't have thought of. You can never have a "do-over" for wedding pictures and I am so grateful to Doug and Bryan for the impeccable job they did. I would highly, HIGHLY recommend them to anyone for any photography needs!

My fiancé and I are both very shy people when it comes to being in the limelight, also didn't want to take engagement photos because of our awkwardness. During our hunt, for our photographer, we wanted someone to capture moments as opposed to the cheesy smile and pose. So glad we found Alexa! Her work is beyond amazing! From the minute she stepped into the bridal lair, she handled the wedding chaos of missing bridesmaids, demanding mothers, with patience and kindness. We are a Filipino couple, and with our huge wedding entourage, Alexa respected all the photo requests from our entourage. Sorry by the way! When it finally came down to taking our newlyweds shots, she made us feel so comfortable, and directed us on how to feel at ease! Thank you Bright Bird Photography, for the love and energy in capturing our big day!Your craft is truly "on point." We are looking forward to the photos!

My fiance and I interviewed a couple other photographers for our wedding photography but decided to go with Vanessa. We started with engagement photos to get to know each other before our wedding, and we couldn't be happier working with her. She made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera and just be ourselves. She has so much of positive energy and was willing to meet our needs and wants. The high resolution images were given to us within a week, and they turned out great. We can't wait til our wedding and working with her again. I highly recommend Vanessa as your photographer to capture your special moments.

I have hired Juan on 3 separate occasions and he has been wonderful throughout them all! Juan was extremely professional and kind from the very beginning. He is flexible and creative in regards to timing and locations. He is also very open to ideas and looks that you may have. Our engagement photos and bridal shoot were gorgeous and he took the time needed to create some amazing shots. There are so many good ones - it's been hard to choose my favorites! I also hired him for our wedding in July, 2015. Our wedding happened to be on a day that an enormous thunderstorm came through Southern CA. Our venue was outdoors and we had to move the reception last minute to a hotel nearby. Juan stuck through it all and got some BEAUTIFUL and very candid photos of us and our guests. We will be able to look back on these photos and know exactly how we were feeling in those moments. Juan is so good at capturing the true heart and soul of his subjects. I highly recommend him for his talent, professionalism and kindness!!

My fiancé and I very much enjoyed our experience getting our engagement photos, she was easy to get a hold of and set up appointments with, very casual and easy to talk to. I’m not from the area so she was able to pick the spot and guide us with certain photo ideas while at the same time letting us be ourselves and not have too posed pictures. We received a “sneak peak” of our photos the night of and we love them so far! They turned out amazing. Highly recommend!

Shaula and I recently got married in Santa Barbara Courthouse and Bob, together with Paul, his assistant, was our photographer. We really love the pictures they took of us, our family, and our guests. Surprisingly, even though Bob took picture throughout the ceremony, he didn't bother us at all. He was there, but he didn't stage the ceremony. He just let us be, and he managed to get all the unforgettable moments while maintaining great compositions. I would highly recommend hiring Bob as your photographer.

This person was so amazing. She took the best video of my wife and i’s wedding day! Not only was the footage great, but she was extremely professional and a pleasure to be around. My wife loved her personality, which made it very easy to act natural when someone is filming them. She got videos of things that I didn’t even get to experience myself as the groom, so watching back again was like a new experience in itself. Her prices are great for the amazing quality I received. I would recommend her for any event, photo and video. We hired her for video, but she took better pictures than the photographer we hired. Thank you Danyell! 5 stars all the way.

I've worked with Barbara twice, for both professional photos and family holiday photos. She's creative and extremely professional, funny and kind, and I couldn't be happier with the entire process. I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again. She's the first person I'd recommend if asked about photographers and my go-to gal for any photography project. We love Barbara, and so will you!

We first started working with Lalita when my son Oliver was 1 month old.  I wanted to capture him in this newborn phase because before I know it, he’ll be in college!  I didn’t know what to expect because Oliver can be a handful at home with all his cuddly toys; a studio with new people could be very tricky.  Lalita immediately made us all so comfortable.  She had a heated blanket for Oliver and knew just how to put him at ease.  I was so impressed with her professionalism and her kind nature.  The photos were spectacular!  We’ve done 3 sessions with Lalita now and each group of photos is better than the next!  She even has a squeaky toy app on her phone that Oliver loves!  That was just one of her many tricks that brought out the most adorable expressions from Oliver.  Our most recent shoot was for Oliver’s 1st birthday, taken at the beach.  Despite the overcast skies, we got beautiful shots full of smiles and giggles, complete with crashing waves in the background.  Lalita works so well with kids, we got all the shots we needed and didn’t even miss naptime!  She is now our official family photographer and we wouldn’t have it any other way!  We LOVE Lalita!  I would highly recommend Lalita and Playful Photography for any family occasion!

    Vince is amazing! He really cared and listened to everything we had to say the whole time. We didn't have a preference on location for engagement photos, and he found such a beautiful place! I couldn't be happier with his work! Highly recommend for anyone!

      Henry photographed my wedding and did an amazing job! He captured the most important day of my life so beautifully. I continue to get questioned on who our photographer was as they are very impressed with his work. For those of you in need of a quality photographer, Henry is top notch!

        Wow! What an amazing photographer! We got married on Dec. 15 at the Santa Barbara Zoo and so many people told us how hard it was to photograph there, Isaiah proved so many people wrong. He was fun and great to work with. His eye for detail blew my wife and I out of the water! His eye to see the small details of every piece of picture really helped. He knew how to blend colors and make us pop and stand out way more than I thought is possible! I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer!!!

        About

        I have been a photographer for as long as I can remember. I am turning my love and passion for the art into a career. I am taking in classes now, and I am mainly trying to build my portfolio which means I will work for cheap, but the quality of images will be rich. Families, portraits, weddings/engagements, pets, and sports photos are what I love and strive to do.
