Linda's energy is infectious, from the first time I met her as a bridesmaid in a friends wedding I had no doubt I wanted her to photograph my wedding day. Her energy and enthusiasm for life brings out the best in her clients. I always felt comfortable that she would listen to what I wanted and get the images. She has yet to disappoint me.  Linda is an amazing combination of a portrait and journalistic photographer in one. Her ability to capture a split second and every detail makes her a great photographer, her care and commitment to her clients makes her an outstanding photographer. Since our wedding Linda has taken maternity photos and newborn photos of our first child. There is no one else I would ask or trust to capture the monumental moments in our lives.

Linda Blue is the best! If I could give her more than 5 stars, I would! Linda photographed our wedding and engagement photos and did a phenomenal job. My husband and I really couldn't be happier with all our photos! She really captured our wedding day perfectly and had the perfect location for all our family /wedding party photos etc. 

What I loved most about working with Linda, is that she's very professional, easy to talk too, and has a great sense of humor! She was always making us laugh and just overall having a great time while she was taking photos throughout our big day. Her personality helped my husband and I relax and just take in and enjoy our wedding day, which we're forever grateful for. The photos she took really capture just how happy we were that day! 

She provided outstanding service leading up to the big day as well and even offered to be my wedding coordinator since my wedding was small and the reception/ ceremony were in the same place. And she did a great job doing that too! We spent a lot of time talking on the phone, planning the day, planning the family/wedding party photos, and the type of photographs/style I was looking for. She was easy to get a hold of and genuinely excited about our wedding. And she even went to our wedding location a week before to search out good spots for photos and timing of lighting etc. She also gave me great recommendations for other wedding party vendors that I used and I was really happy with their work as well. She really knows the wedding business inside out!

We HIGHLY recommend Linda for anyone looking for a great photographer who knows their stuff. She's really a wonderful person and makes taking photos fun and enjoyable!!

Linda Blue did an extraordinary job photographing recipes from for the sold-out cookbook: “Santa Barbara Culinary Arts: A Taste of Santa Barbara’s Culinary Bounty”  I edited in 2014 and 2015. Linda's work is top-notch and it was a pleasure working with her. The chefs and restaurant owners also complimented her highly on her professionalism and engaging personality. I’m looking forward to our collaboration on the 2015 Santa Barbara Culinary Arts cookbook featuring her gorgeous food photography.

I would refer Linda Blue to you in a heartbeat. Why? Because I don't like having my picture taken...yet Linda made it easy. Her light-hearted approach made the entire experience delightful. Her talent resulted in three photos I can use on my website and on social media and feel good about. Her creativity brought forth my playful side. I highly recommend her!"

When looking for a photographer for your wedding or special event look no further, hire Linda Blue! You won’t regret your decision!  Linda is very talented with a great photographic eye knowing just when to press the shutter button for that amazing photo.  She really made our entire wedding special and fun, making our guests and ourselves feeling relaxed with her great ways to make people laugh and smile without looking cheesy.   She even got my Dad to smile who never smiles for photos!  Linda is very professional, organized and experienced.  We love our photos and how Linda captured our amazing day!

There is no way to describe the talent Linda has. She can take any situation and create lasting memories. For our family she has photographed our wedding, family pictures with kids and extended family, and for our business photos for our website and brochures. Every time we meet we have the best time and the pictures turn out fantastic. She just did some generational photos for our business and I can't wait to see the results. Linda is a master.



I highly recommend Linda Blue Photography. Her photographs were excellent and we had a lot to choose from, which is amazing given that we have a large family and toddlers. She was able to keep the toddlers smiling. Five star service. She was very professional, quick to respond and got us the photos that day after the photo shoot.

Linda, your website is luscious. You have a great eye for composition and a gift for capturing the spirit of each of your subjects. Every one is beautiful, natural and vibrant. In the couples and family photos, the playfulness and love is so apparent. Your photographs of children are magical. You catch them in the act of being their most carefree and innocent. There are so many stories here. I think I will drop by your site whenever I need my spirits uplifted.



Linda has a gift for making you feel comfortable in front of the camera. She gets you laughing and relaxed; she'll bring out your best. I hate taking photos. But my experience with Linda was fantastic. Her talents extend to photographing just about anything including food, wine, lifestyle. But I think one of her greatest gifts is photographing people. She has such a fun, effervescent personality, you just can't help but feel great when you are working with her. And it shows. I look forward to my next shoot with her. 



Linda is amazing in any professional setting! I have worked with her a number of times and always have fantastic results- from shoots as an artist to shoots with my teams in the accounting and insurance industries. Linda gives and gets 100% quality- Every time!!

Linda took our wedding photos.  She created such a fun, comfortable atmosphere for us; she made us feel like stars.  It was also very handy having her run our timeline for that day, such an easy day for us!  Oh and our album is simply lovely, I love showing it to everyone I can!  We also feel like we’ve made a great friend.  We need to have more special occasions for her to photograph!
