BEHIND THE CAMERA
I’m Sarita Relis, a Santa Barbara-based professional photographer committed to providing you with spectacular one-of-a-kind imagery for your wedding, portrait, or brand photography needs.
Dedicated to offering my clients a hands-on and personalized experience, I foster long-term relationships built on the foundation of communication and connection. As a result, you can always rely on me to listen to your needs and concerns before and during a shoot, and I make sure that your photography experience with me is relaxed, easy-going, and enjoyable.
Through extensive training and years of experience, I have learned to expertly capture my clients’ individual personalities in a natural, authentic, and flattering way. My professional yet friendly approach allows you to relax and relish in each photo session.
My photography journey started after I ended my career in the Los Angeles Music & Sound Recording Industry, my first job after earning a BA in Broadcasting and Communication. As one door closed, the door to my purpose opened: upon landing a job assisting a portrait photographer and doing movie-set photography on the side, I discovered the fulfillment, connection, creativity, and adventure photography provided me with. Intending to build my own business eventually, I returned to school to study photography full-time.
The magic of exploring, being creative, seeing new places, meeting interesting people from all around the globe, and photographing some of the most cherished moments in peoples’ lives, are the reasons I love my profession. Photography is a soul-fulfilling experience, and I enjoy capturing once-in-a-lifetime moments and creating visual records to be enjoyed for years to come.
I am available for private and commercial work in and around the Santa Barbara and Los Angeles areas, as well as for travel.
I look forward to hearing from you and hope we get to work together soon!
