When you’re walking along State Street with a beautiful couple it’s easy to understand how Santa Barbara got its nickname, the American Riviera! Tucked between the mountains, and the sea, with beautiful architecture, a boardwalk, and all the sunshine! Angela and Kevan flew in from Utah to spend some time with us for their engagement photos. But while we were together, we couldn’t help but feel like maybe we’d all traveled to a little town in Europe together instead!
We were so excited when Angela mentioned she wanted to include bicycles in their American Riviera engagement session! We love when our J&S couples have a vision for their session! And we were so happy to be able to bring that to life. We met Angela & Kevan at the beginning of Stearn’s Wharf with our favorite dolphins from the show Psych! We started off our session on the boardwalk lined with sand on one side and palm trees on the other. Thankfully, we weren’t hit by any other bicyclists while we had these two Utahns posing on their bikes!
After the boardwalk, we headed down State Street stopping along certain buildings to take pictures of this sweet couple. We found a path behind a local coffee shop that led to a small garden of palm trees. As the sun started to dip lower in the sky Angela & Kevan changed into their second outfit and we headed towards West Beach. We’re pretty sure they color-coordinated their outfits with the sand and ocean with how amazing they both looked!
Angela & Kevan, we had so much fun with the two of you during your American Riviera engagement session and we’re so glad we had the chance to catch up with you when you toured Villa & Vine! We are SO excited for your wedding next month! and we can’t wait to get you both back in front of our cameras!
