Santa Barbara is one of my absolute favorite places to visit. It’s such a hidden gem with so much to offer. The beaches are incredible, and the vibes give you that real California feeling. My sister currently lives there, so I go there a lot to visit! Normally when I visit I don’t shoot because I just want to focus on spending time with the family, but this last time I thought it’d be fun to see if I could meet up with a couple and take some cute pics! I found Ali & Sid through the one and only instagram, they were so fun to hang out with and were willing to get into the freezing cold February ocean. Ali is the cutest person and I avidly follow her photo & cooking accounts on instagram. She posts the most fabulous recipes, definitely check out her stuff on sourdough bread, she’s a genius.
