Bonnie & Cabe’s Santa Barbara engagement session is the perfect prequel to their wedding, also in Santa Barbara, this summer. However when the couple first told photographer Paul they wanted their engagement session to be at their apartment and favourite local spots, he was actually kind of worried that the photos would turn out less dynamic and exciting to what he usually likes to shoot. He needn’t have worried! The session took place on the most beautiful sunny winter day and with Bonnie, an artist and photographer and Cabe, a musician, he was set up for the perfect shoot for this creative couple.
“They were coming up with a ton of ideas and remained chill and jovial all day.” Paul explains “You know how sometimes the photos we admire and look back at the most, are often the most basic … sitting on the couch, talking with a friend, etc. I think we nailed it. They also really wanted to emphasize their California roots … we’ll see even more “homegrown” sunshine-state flavor at the wedding this July for sure!”
