Alea + Israel are quite possibly 2 of the most adorable people I have met. While in Santa Barbara at United (a photography conference) I was able to photograph their engagement session while is Santa Barbara last February. Their session took place right at the Fess Parker hotel, an incredible venue. Getting away to California in the middle of February was a dream come true for this Maryland photographer! As we started the 2nd half of the session a huge way of fog flooded the sky and lawn of the Fess. The evening sunset was so magical with the sunbeams peeking though the fog and palm trees. I could have stayed on the lawn and photographed all night long. I hope you enjoy this session as much as I did! XO
