With beautiful ocean views and temperate weather, Santa Barbara offers amorous pairs a magical location to get hitched. To capture the memories and oceanic atmosphere of your Santa Barbara wedding, invest in a professional wedding photographer for your ceremony and reception.  Unsure of how to get started looking for Santa Barbara wedding photographers? We have all the information you need to find the cameraperson that’s right for you here on WeddingWire.

How to Find Wedding Photographers in Santa Barbara

In a town as beautiful as Santa Barbara, no occasion should ever go un-photographed — especially not a wedding. In order to ensure that your coastal wedding is captured in all of its beauty, it’s vital to invest in a professional wedding photographer who you can count on to immortalize your special day. To be sure that you make the right choice, we recommend reading online reviews and browsing portfolios of professionals in the region. This way, you’ll be able to get a better feel for which photographers’ styles align with your own. Once you’ve narrowed it down to your top candidates, we suggest scheduling interviews to see what it’s like to work with each photographer. It’s also essential to keep your wedding budget in mind. In the Santa Barbara area, most professional wedding photographers will charge a minimum of $2,000 for their wedding photo packages.

Scenic Locations for Wedding Photography in Santa Barbara

If breathtaking ocean views are your thing, then you’ll find no shortage of wedding photo opportunities in Santa Barbara. Nestled alongside the Pacific Ocean, Santa Barbara features miles of beachfront and cliff-side real estate — great for photos at sunrise, sunset and any time in between. The city is also home to a small-but-vibrant urban community that includes bustling shops and stunning Spanish-inspired architecture. If you and your partner are into wine, take your photographer along to one of the many vineyards in the area for a stunning photoshoot. No matter what location you choose for your wedding day, you’ll be sure to have an abundance of magical photo-ops to choose from in Santa Barbara.

Weather Forecast for Santa Barbara Weddings

Weather is usually a factor in wedding plans — but in Santa Barbara, wedding parties will be pleased to know that they have little to worry about. This region of California is home to a year-round temperate climate. Winters do bring cloudier and chillier weather, but temperatures never come close to freezing. Winter and fall are also the region’s wettest seasons, so if you’re planning a wedding during this time of year, have a venue with indoor accommodations booked, to be safe. Other than that, pack sunscreen and a swimsuit, because the beaches will call out to you and your fiancé(e) no matter the season.

You have something borrowed and something blue, but you still need to find the vendors that are right for you. Look no further, because we have all the resources you need right here on WeddingWire to plan your Big Day. Get hitched without encountering a hitch by using our comprehensive selection of  wedding planning tools today.
