Heidi and Mike’s Engagement (Santa Barbara, CA)

Heidi and Mike are getting married up in Oakland, CA tomorrow, and I will be there to document it. It’s gonna be fun! The story of their engagement session in Santa Barbara/Montecito (from a couple of weeks ago) follows the images.


















Heidi and Mike decided they’d like to do their engagement photo session at Butterfly Beach, which is across the street from the The Biltmore in Montecito, CA (near Santa Barbara). One of their first dates was at this beach, so it was a special moment to return for the photo session.

We shot on the beach, and then later at the Coral Casino (a private beach club…sorry, members only!). The weather was perfect. But hey, this is California.

Technical details:

Bronica ETR-s with 75mm f/2.8 lens, and Kodak Portra 160 film.
Nikon F100 with 50mm f/1.4 lens, and Kodak Portra 160 and 400 films.
