Jen and Caleb’s Wedding

san luis obispo wedding photography

Jen and Caleb were married on Caleb’s family ranch in the hills outside of Orcutt, CA. Basically, it was a full-on ranch BBQ party with amazing friends and family. Santa Maria tri-tip, boots, jeans, a bathtub full of beer, and dancing amongst the hills and oaks into the night.

Jen creates knitted art installations, and she put her expertise to good use with all sorts of DIY creations around the site. You can also see their wedding on Green Wedding Shoes.

Danielle Capito Photography -

This wedding is so cool and unique and you rocked it!! So jealous of all the hipster weddings you get because they are the best :)

Sarah! Der! -

Ken. You captured SO MUCH joy and loveliness in every. Single. Shot. You got skillz, man…and I can’t wait to travel to SLO and have you photograph me and the hubs (+possibly the kitty and pup!!!!). I just really love the way you see people and light and moments–such beauty! Such honesty! (p.s. I really want to be friends with this couple.) (Like, for real).

Serena Severtson -

Everything about this wedding is just amazing! They look so fun and their details (hanging records over the dance floor?!) are ridiculously cute. Great work! :)

Emily and Paul’s Maui Wedding

Emily and Paul had the most amazing Maui wedding earlier this year. It was a gathering of just their closest family and friends, and for a few hours I got to be a part of their intimate celebration. It was a really fun, relaxing, joyful thing to be a part of. I posted their day after photo session, you can see it here.

someday i’d very much like to just sit back and watch you shoot for a few hours. first frame is epic.

Crystal Skrupski -

Stunning work.. as per usual :)

Marco Pardun -

The pictures are fantastic and a magical wedding.. Nice Ken!

Serena Severtson -

I’m really close friends with Emily + Paul… and you really did such an incredible job capturing their day and love for one another. My husband and I weren’t able to attend their wedding in-person, but we’re so happy to be able to relive the beauty of the day through your photographs and your vision.

Seriously. Phenomenal. Work. :)

Evelyn and Steven | San Luis Obispo

san luis obispo wedding photographers

Evelyn and Steven were awesome. The time flew by, and I can’t wait for their wedding at the Dana Powers Barn next year! Evelyn was a little nervous at first, and it was pretty sweet to see Steven keep her distracted and laughing. The nerves wore off pretty quickly though, and these two were so fun to photograph.
