My approach to wedding photography best described as fine art photojournalism, offering an intimate and authentic experience while capturing and creating beautiful, artistic imagery from the celebration of your love and union. Some of my favorite Santa Barbara wedding venues to photograph include Sunstone Villa, Kestrel Park, The Firestone Crossroads Estate and The Four Season's Biltmore in Santa Barbara.

I find my inspiration in the intimacy, joy and candid moments that couples experience with one another and the ones the love most as the celebrate their union among the countless beautiful locations the Santa Barbara has to offer. If we could give Kiel more than 5 stars, we would. He does not just take pretty pictures. There are poetics in his point of view, the way he captures the light and the moment to help tell your story.

These are not your same tired wedding shots. Kiel is where wedding photography is headed. We feel honored and gifted to have had the opportunity to work with him before his talent pulls him out of our reach.

Most options include an engagement session because it allows us to get to know one another a little better and to develop a rhythm and a rapport before your wedding day. It also produces a beautiful set of images to share with friends and family. While selecting and editing your images, I personally bring each selected image to it's fullest potential before delivering a full copy of final digital images from your wedding day.

read more › My approach to wedding photography is likely best described as fine art photojournalism. This means that the images I capture and the art I create is intimately connected to the relationship created between myself and the people I photograph. It's impossible for me to spend good time with good people and not have space for them in my heart. I believe this plays a massive role in my ability to capture beautiful, authentic moments and to turn them into art for you. In short, if we end up working together we are going to become friends.

This collection also includes a custom fine-art, linen wedding album, and two 66 parent albums and handmade wooden proof box (with 300 46 proof prints) engraved with your names as heirlooms to have and to pass-on for generations to come.

read more › I was born and raised in Santa Fe, New Mexico; creativity stoked at a young age by the unconventional Waldorf school philosophy which eventually blossomed into a full-time love and passion for the arts. Home is currently Santa Barbara, California where I've been working as a professional lifestyle, editorial and wedding photographer since 2011. When not behind the lens (or my laptop screen in coffeeshops and teahouses), you can probably find me somewhere outdoors - hiking or jetting off on a road trip somewhere.
