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!

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!

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 chosen to work with Madeleine's Photography since 1985 for the many types of professional photography that I have needed- starting with an article that I wrote about Madeleine's business in the Santa Barbara Independent Newspaper. Since then, I have continuously hired her to provide professional headshots for me for my real estate business and for personal photographs that I've shared with friends and family. I also hired her to take several photographs that were published on the front covers of many phone books here in Southern California on behalf of the largest utility phone company. Madeleine's skills and work ethic are impeccable; her personality is warm and inviting; and her resulting photographs are of the highest quality. I will trust no one else for any of my photographic needs- commercial or personal.

There are literally no words to describe Ashley Wolford. After meeting with several other photographers, she was the only one my family and I liked. Her professionalism is unlike any other - prompt with responses, super creative. Her work is impeccable! Ashley captures your event in a way you never thought possible.

I have worked with Carlye several times over the past three years. Every time and with every project Carlye delivers beautiful pictures and videos. Carlye is professional, easy to work with, and extremely creative. What is most surprising is the speed in which she delivers a finished project. Most photographers and Video-ographers take weeks to even let you take a peek at your project. Carlye is quicker than anyone I have ever worked with, with no compromise to the finished project. You can ask Carlye to edit her work, for example change music, she does it with ease. I would highly recommend Carlye Ann Productions for any event, wedding or project you may have.

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.

Jim is one of the best photographers I have ever worked with. He can go out on a shoot alone and come back with great stuff. He always manages to get the best out of people. I have recommended him to many clients through the years and he has retained all of them. Elena Trevino Elena Trevino Design

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!!

Shandi was awesome. She is an extremely talented photographer. We LOVED our maternity photos. She is easy going and this helped us feel very comfortable, since it was our first time doing a photo shoot. We were extremely happy with the final product.

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!!!

Ash took photos of my new puppy for me. She has a way with dogs I can't describe! She was able to get the perfect pictures of my new puppy with ease. I am very happy of the pictures I have and will be returning when my puppy is older! This is great to receive high quality photographs without paying some of those ridiculous prices. I fully recommend her to anyone who wants any picture! Thank you Arist Ash!

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.
