Leave The Details Up To Me!

So many details and so little time! I know about all the little details that go into planning a dream wedding. The bridesmaid dresses, the fun shoes, the flowers, the table settings, the cakes, the rings, the venue, the music, and the list goes on and on and its a lot of work and planning. Believe me I have seen so many wedding plans, from the pinterest boards to the actual events. Thats why I love capturing all your details! This is one of the fun parts of my wedding photography, making sure all your attention to the details get beautifully photographed to preserve these precious memories of your day. All your hard work needs to be documented, so your walk down memory lane will bring you right back to your biggest moments.

Linda's Organic Approach to Her Photography

Hello everyone my name is Dorey and I am Linda's personal assistant. Recently I was asked about Linda's approach and method of photography in general. It got me thinking as to why her photography is different from others and why I think it stands out. I have watched Linda at work and observed her in many photographic situations. At  first, she approaches a photography shoot the same way any professional photographer thinks about a shoot, the location, the lighting, the people involved with the shoot, her equipment needed etc... But where the magic happens is while on set or at the location. Linda has the incredible gift of taking situations and natural moments and circumstances and turn them into incredible creative photography. Her quick thinking and creative mind are always at work. Her ability to be spontaneous with moments and imagery is very unique. It could be something as simple as a client showing up in a beautiful flowing dress and Linda asking that person to start twirling in that dress at the right moment in that shoot to create an incredible shot. Her photography is totally organic to that particular shoot and the people involved. She also has a beautiful gift of making people relax and feel comfortable and by doing this she can get people to open up and let their true spirit shine.

Here are some of my personal favorites of her work. Enjoy!

Santa Barbara Weddings!

We are so lucky in Santa Barbara to have some of the most spectacular locations for weddings! One of my all time favorites is our lovely Santa Barbara Courthouse. So many of my most memorable wedding images have been shot at this venue. Here are a few images from some recent weddings I have done, most of these were shot at the courthouse but there are a couple from other Santa Barbara locations as well. The Courthouse is so unique and photogenic on it's own, but its architecture is so perfect for wedding portraits and groups shots. There are so many creative nooks and crannies to showcase beautiful wedding vignettes. There is also many big dramatic places to get those ultimate wedding photos that every bride and groom dreams of! So if you are thinking about having your wedding in Santa Barbara, Linda Blue Photography has got you covered! Let me capture your big moments and all the little details as well!

A Royal Good Time!

Recently I was asked to photograph a beautiful tea party! It was held at The Music Academy of the West and hosted by Santa Barbara Choral Company. The chef for the fabulous affair was the infamous Darren McGrady, the former chef to Queen Elizabeth and the late Princess Diana! It was a beautiful luncheon and tea, complete with fancy hats and Wedgewood teacups! A Royal Good Time was had by all!
