The perfect photographer for your wedding
Pinnel Photography was the perfect photographer for our wedding and elopement. The pictures are incredible and Juan and Talia were so helpful on the day of the event - they were so good at walking us through everything (no stress at all for me!) and gave us their professional advice to ensure our pictures were exactly what we wanted. We could not have been happier and would recommend them to everyone!Sent on 05/29/2019

Photography for elopement, just the bride and groom.
Juan was so great to work with! He was easy going and friendly. Our photos are beautiful and perfectly captured the day. I would happily work with him again. My only regret is that we had two hours and it was just my husband and I. We easily got done what we needed after 1-1.5 hours. I wish I had brought a couple of changes of clothes so we could have more casual looking photos as well!Sent on 05/29/2019
Pinnel Photography's reply:Hi Katie, It was so nice meeting you both and capturing beautiful photos of your elopement. We're so happy that you love your photos. Thank you also for your feedback about the timing. We've found that for most couples two hours is a perfect amount of time for elopement photography with portraits following. Many couples even opt to add a third hour. In any regard, I'm glad that we could explore and capture sweet moments together in some of Santa Barbara's most iconic locations. Thank you for your kind words. Wishing you all the best.

Perfect Energy + Stunning Photos!
Juan and Talia had the perfect energy throughout the entire process; excited, confident, and upbeat, and also calm and reassuring.... from the start Juan made the our engagement session, and wedding day feel very natural - putting us at ease, while capturing every moment.Sent on 05/06/2019
We had total trust in Juan and Talias process - early planning, selection of photo op locations, schedule, etc. It was so great to not have to think and stress about such a big wedding day itme - the pics! - They took care of it all, and we couldnt be happier.
The photos were stunning, truly capturing everything: the coastal landscape, the tearful vows, the late night dance floor insanity, and everything in between.
Couldn't recommend them more!
Juan is great to work with! We worked together at a wedding in Ojai. He's easy to get along, knows what he's doing, and takes great photos! He's also great on social media and loves to share his work with clients and vendors that he work with. Check out this page for more of his work!
