Matt [at] RewindPhotography.com 130 Garden St, Santa Barbara, CA 93101 (805) 768-4888
We are an experienced husband & wife wedding photography team based out of Santa Barbara, CA.
We believe the more relaxed and fun we can make your photography experience, the better your wedding photos will turn out. A wedding photographer's personality is important. The energy, enthusiasm, and passion we as photographers bring is what creates a comfortable environment where you feel relaxed to just be you. When you are relaxed and having fun, the photos capture natural, genuine, authentic expressions that represent who you really are and better express the essence of your wedding day. We are often told by couples how much they love candid wedding photographs. We too love candid wedding photography. The heart of creating candid photos, the photos that draw us in and make us feel like we are a part of the photograph, come from creating a relaxed environment and a fun photography experience.
How much time will you spend with your wedding photographer on your wedding day? A lot. Out of all the vendors you hire, your wedding photographer will be with you throughout most of your wedding day. We are story tellers and as such we meet up with you early on your wedding day before you get ready. We begin telling your wedding story through photography before you see each other. In many cases, we spend more time with the bride & groom on their wedding day than they spend with each other. You will spend a lot of time with your photographer. Finding the personality that meshes with yours, the personality that you feel comfortable and connect with will be a large part of what you remember when you look back at your wedding photographs. We are enthusiastic and passionate about creating the best experience for you. We believe the experience you have when taking your photographs is as important as the photographs themselves. After all, it is the experience you will remember when you look back at your photographs.
Our name is Rewind Photography. Our goal with that name is to create an experience and photographs that draw you in allowing you to rewind your wedding day, to relive, to remember, to recall, to re-experience the feeling, emotions, sounds, smells, and the memories from that day.
There are a lot of beautiful Santa Barbara wedding locations to get married. Should you be at the point in the planning process where you have chosen your wedding venue, Matt would love to meet you both at your venue space to walk through your vision of your wedding. Nothing quite compares to experiencing the space together and physically be there in person. Moving throughout the location allows us to experience your wedding vision and align with your ideas. This also helps us plan out the wedding day timing around the lighting. So much of the best wedding photography is based around great lighting and being there in person will help us plan for that. There is no substitute to the chemistry that comes with meeting face-to-face, however, if due to distance we are unable to meet at your wedding venue, Matt would still love to connect with both of you over FaceTime, Skype or even a Google Hangout, whichever you prefer.
We look forward to getting to know you and how we can come alongside your vision for your wedding. There is no question too small. If you have a question and feel you want to reach out to us, please, we encourage you shoot us an email, give us a call, or even text us.

As Seen In
We designed our photography collections to put you in control of building your own photography package.
Every Collection Includes The Following
Number of Hours
Collections range between 7 hrs - 11hrs depending on how much photography coverage you need on your wedding day. We can help provide you with a recommendation on hours after we meet to discuss your vision for your wedding day. When we meet, we will help create the perfect photo timeline that blends together your wedding day vision with the timing & lighting necessary to create great photographs.
Having two photographers means covering MORE ANGLES, capturing MORE CANDID MOMENTS, and giving you MORE PHOTOS! Since your wedding day is packed full of ‘one-time’ moments, two photographers really can be in two different places at once.
We give you the high resolution, digitally enhanced photo files so you can download them and have a copy for your own storage and safekeeping.
Every photo we deliver goes through a multi-step digital enhancement process to make each photo the best it can be. Digital enhancements include adjustments to the photograph's color, exposure, shadows, highlights and/or contrast to further develop the end vision we as photographers had in mind when creating the photograph.
We include printing privileges so you and your family members can print as much as you’d like, wherever you like. We make it easy for your family & friends to order photo prints without having to involve you as a middle-person in the ordering process.
Just as important to the quality of photos is how you view & share them. Your modern online gallery gives you the ability to favorite your photos and share them with family & friends.
Our primary focus is to provide the best service possible to each of our couples. In order to do so, we limit the number of weddings we serve each year. Our calendar remains open to booking other weddings until we have received a completed contract.
Pricing ranges from $3100 for 7 hrs of coverage, high res digital files + all the above, to $4900 for 11 hrs, high res digital files + all of the above // CONTACT US through the contact form found at the bottom of the page to see our online magazine with more collection details.
Please ask us any questions - There is no question too small.
Here are our Top 6 most commonly asked questions
Do you digitally enhance only some of the images, or all of the images?
All of the images. We don't select just our favorite photographs to digitally enhance, we digitally enhance every image to make them look their best because that is what we would want ourselves.
Do I get the high resolution copies of my images?
Absolutely. We would want our high resolution digital copies of our wedding photography images, so we give them to you. What we would also want is printing privileges to the images we receive. So we give that to you as well. Our eContract includes printing privileges so you or any of your family members can go to a professional printing lab and print your photographs without the lab refusing to print the professional pictures.
NUMBER OF HOURS
How many hours of photography coverage do I need?
We believe the best way to get the most out of your investment in your wedding photography is based around your wedding day photo timeline. Good photography depends on good light, and good lighting depends on timing. We would love to meet with you, even if it's over FaceTime or Skype, to help you develop a photo timeline so you can get the best photographs possible. After we have met and walked through your vision of your wedding day together, we will be able to make an hour recommendation based around your specific wedding day timeline.
How is digital enhancement different than retouching?
Professional photo retouching refers to the type of photo manipulation you are most likely to see in magazine covers. In retouching, a professional photoshop technician may remove wrinkles, acne, scars, reshape waist lines, whiten teeth or other major manipulations to the photo. Retouching is very expensive and very time consuming. Retouching is different than digital enhancements. Digital enhancements are adjustments to a photo's color temperature, exposure, highlights, shadows, contrast and color profiles to massage the image into looking like the photographer's intention when taking the photograph.
How many photographers do I get?
Two, because your wedding is full of one time moments. Having more photographers on your wedding day allows us to cover more angles and cover more moments. That is important, especially on a wedding day where events and moments only happen once. Click here to learn more about us.
Can I share my photos from the online gallery with my family and friends?
Yes. After the wedding, once the digital enhancement process is complete, we will email you a link to your online gallery. Once you are in the online gallery, you can download all of your photos and preserve a copy for your own safekeeping. What's even better is you can easily forward the email we send you to your family and friends. This takes you out of the middle person role from facilitating print orders family members may want. Once you forward them the gallery link, they can download & order whatever prints they would like without having to involve you in the process.

Wedding Planners & Coordinators
One of the best decisions you can make when planning your wedding is to hire an experienced wedding planner or wedding coordinator. There is so much value a wedding planner/coordinator adds to your planning experience and your day-of execution that rather than list all the points below, we focused in on just a few points in hopes that you would consider their services.
DON'T WORK ON YOUR WEDDING DAY. TAKE IT OFF
Take your wedding day off. Enjoy it. And the same goes for your mom or best friend. Give your mom the day off. Give your best friend the day off too. You don't want your mom/best friend running around, you want your loved ones to be there with you, alongside you experiencing the wedding and the party with you. There is a lot of work that takes place on a wedding day. Overseeing the setup for the ceremony or reception. Bringing all the details together to ensure every detail is set up the way it was envisioned. Should you take on the task of coordinating your wedding day, you will have people coming up to you, asking you what you want them to do, all day long. If someone asks how you want something set up, sometimes you may even be tempted to jump in and do some of the tasks yourself. A wedding coordinator is a liaison between you and the vendors for the day. One of the many important things they do is they relieve you of any unnecessary stress and let you take your wedding day off.
KNOWING THE DETAILS YOU DIDN'T KNOW YOU DIDN'T EVEN KNOW
We love the expression, 'You don't do well what you don't do often'. The more often we do something, the better we are able do it. An experienced wedding planner has wedding-after-wedding of experience in their repertoire tool belt to pull from. They have planned and executed more wedding ceremonies and reception parties than many of us have ever attended. They plan and coordinate wedding after wedding, weekend after weekend. This is their world and they are good at it. An experienced wedding planner/coordinator has walked through the wedding process so often, their experience goes beyond simply how a wedding looks from the style and design perspective. They provide deep insight into the details you didn't know you didn't even know about. This helps ensure you have not forgotten anything. Where wedding planners shine is in the details specific to your unique wedding day that an online check list just can not possibly cover. Details such as the flow of party traffic to maximize your guest's experience or the details that go along with each vendor such as space for catering or the location of power outlets at your wedding reception. An experienced wedding planner/coordinator has been down the wedding road so many times they can pre-visualize the details unique to your wedding that need to be accounted for to make the vision unfold.
SMALL CHANGES PERFECT A PLAN'S EXECUTION
Some of the greatest inventions in history came from stepping out of the planning room, observing the gears in motion, and making small changes in the final stage to achieve the perfect final result. The best wedding planners do this well. Most of us are familiar with all the work a wedding planner puts into planning the wedding before the actual wedding day. Some wedding planners have binders so thick with their stacks of preparation they could possibly be tall enough to replace a small kitchen step stool. The lesser-known value that many of us may not be as familiar with, however, is how an experienced wedding planner moves the design from paper into the real world that you and I experience on the wedding day. Sometimes only action can flush out the final movements of a plan to achieve the perfect end result. An experienced wedding planner becomes your artist that knows the vision and is able to incorporate variables in a way that could never have been predicted on paper.
