The Narrative is a hidden gem in Santa Barbara. Whether you’re looking for a photo studio or an event space, you will love the beautiful hardwood floors, the natural light flowing in from the windows and all the props that the studio has to offer. Not to mention the helpful owner and staff. I recently used the studio to shoot product shots and we couldn’t have had a better experience. The studio also has all the modern equipment available for rent; such convenience!
