Winter Wedding in Santa Barbara

Happy New Year everyone! I thought I would share some photos from the latest wedding I photographed, to start 2011 with happy thoughts.

We’re grateful that the weather in Santa Barbara is warm enough to have a wedding in December. It was actually a bit chilly, but the sun came out just as the bride, Elizabeth, showed up.

This is what Elizabeth posted on Facebook: “If anyone is looking for a wedding photographer in the Santa Barbara area, Isaac Hernandez is the absolute BEST! His pictures of our wedding are amazing! Candid and beautiful.. None of that staged typical wedding photography crap. He’s a true artist and we were incredibly lucky to have him document this momentous occasion.
Thank You Isaac! We love you!”

Thank you Elizabeth and Mike for being so nice. It was an honor to photograph your wedding!

    Thank you, Nina. I didn’t know either. Wedding photography started as a way of giving wedding presents to friends, then it became a paid hobby, and now I’m addicted to it. Being a wedding photographer is part being invisible, part being a performer. I’m a natural at both. I love capturing little moments, I love making people laugh, and especially love how happy people are afterwards reliving the memories with my photos. Even I get all emotional looking at the photos. Last night I spent over an hour going over old photos of a wedding, finding new quirky moments and laughing (I needed some laughs after the bad news from Arizona).

    Other than this blog and being recommended by Pure Joy Catering in their website (after taking photos of their owner for The Wall Street Journal), I don’t market my wedding photography too much. Let’s say I’m Santa Barbara’s best secret wedding photographer. :)
