owner & lead photographer

A couple was having two wedding ceremonies–a courthouse wedding with their families and an intimate elopement on a private island in the Caribbean. They hired me as their Los Angeles wedding photographer and hired a Caribbean wedding photographer who was local to their island. The bride and I hit it off right away and became instant friends. Her wedding photography reflected the ease and comfort in our relationship. Their Caribbean wedding photos, however, fell short. The bride was not in love with the photographer and was disappointed in her photos. Hindsight, she wishes that she had hired me for both.

TRUE STORY...

MORAL OF THE STORY...

Hire the wedding photographer who:



After the wedding is over, all you have to remember your day is your photos. Anyone can snap a photo, but not every photo will allow you to relive your dreams.

1. You love their work.
2. You would choose to be friends with in real life.

"Please get Ariel for your wedding if you are blessed with the opportunity! Not only is she amazing at her job, she is such a kind person and made every aspect of it so easy for me..."

My style is authentic, timeless and romantic. I prefer a mix between candid and styled photos. The result is comfortable and relaxed.

I love colors that make you feel the emotion of the moment.

for the modern yet sentimental couple

As a premier wedding photographer in Santa Barbara, it's my job (and my joy) to see things that others don't--the look on the groom's face when he sees his bride for the first time, that last deep breath a bride takes before she walks down the aisle, the tear that runs down a father's cheek as he gives his daughter away. These are the moments I live for on a wedding day. These are the moments that, if they're not captured, you won't even realize they happened, but these are the moments that make you feel. When you look back at your wedding album in 20 years, I want you to remember the love and excitement on his face, your grandmother's ring that was tied to your bouquet, the getaway dress and glitter shoes that you wore as you ran under the sparklers to your car...

If these are the things you want to remember, if this is what you want to feel when you look back at your photos, head to my Experience page to find out how we'll make your dream wedding a reality!
