Andrew and Alejandra's Santa Barbara, CA Engagement Shoot

Andrew and Alejandra are family, so taking there pictures was a unique experience. Andrew may have been sighing and rolling his eyes for a few (dozen) photos, but I managed to capture a few without his trademark sarcasm for Alejandra's sake. These two have been together for years and years and it was such a pleasure to photograph such a mature, loving, and fun relationship. We explored Ellwood Butterfly Reserve, which is close to the UC Santa Barbara campus. I first fell in love with this location on a long run in undergrad and have visited many times for photos since. I love that the location has beautiful trees, stunning bluffs, and even direct beach access. See below for more from this engagement session! Be sure to check out the last few photos, which feature Alejandra's gorgeous and colorful ring!
