Santa Barbara wedding photographers, Michael + Anna Costa record your wedding in an imaginative, journalistic style. Their images distill the color/ warmth/ love/ creativity/ fun/ beauty/ detail/ substance/ style of you and your wedding to delight in for as long as you both shall live. They are often complemented on their amiable, unobtrusive nature (we believe photo-ninjas to be the exact phrase) and harmoniousness with everyone involved.
