The main entrance to the Presidio of Santa Barbara is flanked by potted succulents that add tremendously to the overall appeal of this entryway. As is common in my wedding photography, I have centered the couple in the doorway and expanded the field-of-view to also include a small window that leads into the chapel balcony. I particularly enjoy the clean lines of this Adobe structure as well as the fine would textures of the doors that are over 100 years old. The way that I've posed the bride and groom is designed to show off there apparel as well as the bride's bouquet. The front of the Presidio of Santa Barbara has a small area of brick while the rest of the surrounding yard is dirt. As a wedding photographer, I have to keep that in mind when I'm photographing couples at this venue to help ensure that the wedding dress does not get dirty. For this particular wedding, I only had about 15 minutes for portraits of the bride and groom and I've always regretted that I didn't have more time to take advantage of the photographic opportunities available at this amazing Santa Barbara wedding location. Presidio of Santa Barbara (El Presidio de Santa Bárbara) is located in California. Santa Barbara, California. Phone: (805) 965-0093. Website: http://www.sbthp.org/.
