Samantha and Rob were such a fun couple to work with and I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in September 2015!  They met in Santa Barbara…. he is from Australia and she is from Santa Ynez.  They’re incorporating eucalyptus trees into their decor on their wedding day because the trees are abundant in California and Australia …… so, it was only fitting that we did our engagement session “under the gum trees” as they say in Australia. 


I’m excited to share my newly designed website and blog!  I have gone “back to my roots” as a film photographer, and I’m happy to now offer both film and digital photography.  When I first started my business in 2002, I solely shot film and slowly merged to digital.  After missing film, I’m happy that I’m able to work with both mediums.  We have a great year ahead with events and projects, so stay tuned here to keep up with the latest from Kristen Beinke Photography.
