Our family photos turned out beautifully! She was able to capture the kids giggles and more tender moments just as I had hoped; all while dodging waves, waning light and variable cooperation of our 1 and 4 year old boys! She was flexible with time and also with style of photos from spontaneous moments to more formal groupings. I found her pricing very competitive with South Bay professional photographers who generally charge a sizable fee for prints and images on top of sitting fees. Would recommend Bright Bird without reservation!

Juan was a wonderful photographer, and we were so lucky to find him! We had a handful of photographers fall through, and we were stuck with no photographer, two weeks out from the wedding! Juan was extremely easy to work with, from beginning to finish. He not only gave us an amazing price, but delivered beautiful photographs despite very challenging conditions. Not only do my husband and I have extremely disparate skin tones, but we got married outside, at night, with only ambient lighting. We said our vows in the dark! But Juan even managed to get wonderful photos of those moments. Before the day I had asked him to really focus on the emotions and atmosphere, with a preference for candid, natural photos. He did an amazing job capturing the energy, feelings, and atmosphere for the whole event. He has a great eye for color and composition, and for the few posed photos we took, he tactfully and effortlessly guided us into better lighting and positions. There is always a lot going on at a wedding, but Juan was tuned in and put the utmost energy into tracking down and capturing as many meaningful moments as possible. We all felt very comfortable with him, and he easily meshed with the whole vibe. Everyone is impressed with the results, and it was a great experience.

Within a day of starting preliminary research, we had information and suggestions sent to us, as well as an offer to answer any and all questions that we had about the process. The latter was truly sincere; every question asked was answered within a day and the advice offered was always helpful. We can't be more grateful for the assistance and experience freely shared that so greatly made the process of searching for a photographer for a newborn session that much smoother!

I highly recommend!! Shandi was amazing!! She was very professional and fun to work with. Shandi was very patient with my 3 year old, my wardrobe changing :-) and made our maternity session very comfortable. Shandi's communication was amazing, she really made the process easy all I had to do was send her pictures of what I was looking for and she started searching into great locations and she even sent me some edited sneak peaks that same evening. Thanks Shandi! We loved our maternity session, and I can't wait to receive all the edited pictures!

My daughters head shots came out beautiful. I have checked out other photographers in SB and Lucia is the best by far. We are so thankful to find her. Sommer was very comfortable with her and the turn around time of images was super quick. Love her!!

First off let me say that Jocelyn and Spencer at Jocelyn & Spencer Photography are two of most generous and understanding photographers I've ever met. The first time my fiance and I had our engagement photos done (else where) it was a total flop. I decided to look around for another photographer and that is when I discovered Jocelyn & Spencer Photography. I addressed my concerns to both of them, explaining how unhappy I was with the first experience I had. I was astonished with the amount of compassion these two had for us and genuinely looked forward to our photoshoot! During our photoshoot I never felt like I didn't have control over how my pictures where going to be, and the friendly atmosphere Jocelyn and Spencer provided I felt like I was working with great friends. I completely recommend these two to anyone who are looking for a couple of professional photographers, yet extremely fun and outgoing individuals! I can't wait for our next photoshoot. Thank you again Jocely & Spencer Photography!

Over the past several years I've had the pleasure of knowing Ceci as a friend and watching her grow as a great photographer. Last year I had Ceci take my senior pictures. Even though I'm not very photogenic, Ceci worked with me to get some amazing shots. We went to a lot of really rustic places, and a few spots that hold my favorite memories during college. The best part about my shoot was getting to hang out with the Frosts. To them, you're more than just a picture, you're a friend.

We loved working with Ben for our wedding video and couldn't be happier with his final product! He also let us buy all of the footage after the fact for a good price. Thank you Ben!

Lalita has taken pictures of my son several times. She always puts him at ease and is incredibly patient. She is truly a gifted photographer with an eye for detail. Her ability to capture the perfect moment always amazes me. Every picture she has taken of Wesley has been excellent. Each image has captured a little piece of his personality in the most perfect way. I truly treasure every picture she has taken and our friends continuously comment on the quality of her work. I would strongly recommend her to anyone.

      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!!!

      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!

      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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
