Santa Barbara has always had a special place in their hearts. They met here while she was a student at UCSB and he was completing his residency. For these two, it was love at first sight and they haven't looked back since. His job had them move out of state but when it came time to say their "I Do's", they knew where it had to take place: the place where it all started. Their Catholic church ceremony was proceeded by an outdoor garden reception under the twinkling of hanging lights and stars. It truly was the day this couple had dreamed of and so much more!

"Her pictures are beautiful and she catches the greatest moments"
"she did an amazing job guiding us And posing us to help us look our best."
We absolutely loved working with Aura! She was so kind and easy to work with and was very responsive to questions throughout the whole process. We were able to do an engagement photo shoot with Aura and she did an amazing job guiding us through it and posing us to help us look our best. On our wedding day, Aura made us and our bridal party/family members feel so comfortable and posed us perfectly. She did an incredible job getting all of the shots that we wanted and it was so fun to look back on the day through her photos and relive these moments. Aura is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend having her photograph your special day!
For two people who hate taking photos, she made us feel so comfortable and provided wonderful direction. She really cares about the couple and you can tell in her work. She is timely, efficient, organized and understood what photos we wanted. She also sent preview photos that night!! We cannot thank her enough for the wonderful photos that we have the remember our day with! We plan to use Aura for many many more photo sessions down the road. Highly highly recommend her! So grateful.
I cannot say enough good things about Aura and her incredible work. She directed me through the poses and was also open for suggestions of certain thing we wanted to do; ex: our just married jean jacket photos. Overall, my experience with Aura was above and beyond my expectations. She delivered the photos in a very timely (within a month) and efficient manner, which I was very happy about. I truly recommend Aura to anyone looking to capture breathtaking photos of your special occasions. I will definitely be hiring her again when it comes time to celebrate another joyous occasion in my life.
She was really easy to work with and from our first conversation, you can tell that she is really passionate about what she does! on our wedding day, she did a great job capturing candid photos and she was really a pleasure to work with! She was patient with us and our bridal party and was able to capture the most perfect moments! What's more is that she was able to give us a sneak preview of our wedding photos just 2 days after our wedding, which I thought was amazing. I would 100% recommend Aura as a photographer for your special moment/event! She's really friendly, genuine, and easy to work with so you can't top that!
