Welcome to Our website. Kick Up Your Feet and Stay Awhile...

Hello! We are Michael and Anna Costa and we got married because we fell in love. And then we fell in love with photography. And then we fell in love with the idea of other people falling in love. And then we started our business capturing all this love! We have been in business in Santa Barbara for over 10 years and have loved every minute.

We live in a little cottage near the sea in Santa Barbara. Our office faces tall olive trees on our street with glimpses of the Riviera. We have doves in our neighborhood that are perched on those tree tops that often sing to each other. So, when we are editing your wedding photos that is our view. It's serene and lovely.

Our love of photography and art can be seen and felt by the friendships we create with our clients and the love we bring to each event we take on.

We want to document your wedding because there will never be another one like it. We love capturing the fleeting moments that we don't even know are going happen yet. It’s a surprise and a gift. It's our passion.

We are humbled our work has been the subject of many articles, photo editorials and educational features. Being published in these amazing magazines, books and blogs tickles our fancy and it compounds our joy when we have the opportunity to share the work we put into our clients' happiest days with others.

- Michael + Anna

Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara with Ceremony at Monte Vista Lawn

Brittany & Chad's Wedding at Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara with Monte Vista Lawn ceremony.

Dreams really do come true. At least my dreams did… when I shot Brittany and Chad’s wedding. How can an artist go wrong with a gorgeous and lovely couple, a location to die for and a flawlessly executed event? From Brittany’s flaxen cascading hair over her full lace dress, and Chad’s Dapper-Dan-Man in a tux look, the shutter on my camera was lapping up every tasty morsel! Add in the backdrop of the Four Seasons Resort and the exclusive La Pacifica Terrace at the Corral Casino and you are quite literally in heaven. Heaven might not even be as good as this sumptuous combo. But speaking of heaven, I’m blessed to have shot this beautiful day! -Anna
