I am so happy we booked Kelsey as our photographer! We didn't do engagement photos and I get very anxious when it comes to getting my photo taken, so I was pretty worried, but Kelsey made us both feel so at ease that there was no need to worry. She's incredibly talented, but she's also just a lovely person to be around. I really appreciated how assertive she was especially when working with our videographers. I knew I was in good hands even before meeting her because she's so responsive and flexible, especially when it came to coming up with our timeline. She's also crazy fast! Our wedding was just on 8/20 and we already have our photos and they are beautiful! I loved that she made a slideshow for us and posted previews on instagram almost immediately. If you're looking for a photographer who knows what she's doing but is also a joy to be around, book Kelsey!!

Ken is A M A Z I N G! Not only are his photos breathtaking, but he is a genuinely great human being. It is not just about taking photos, it’s about getting to know a couple’s love story and showcasing it through pictures. Upon first meeting Ken, my now-husband and I felt right at ease – Ken was easy to talk to and was interested in understanding our history, present and future. We took our engagement photos with Ken as well, and the one thing that stood out the most was how natural it felt. Yes there were poses, but nothing felt staged, it was just as if we were hanging out with a friend for a few hours and got a ton of great pictures afterwards. And our wedding day was no different. Having someone you are comfortable around take your pictures makes the world of difference. Ken is able to capture genuine happiness and love, because you don’t feel like there is a camera in front of you. Wedding photos are a huge investment, and with Ken every penny is worth it. Our friends and family continue to comment on how beautiful each and every one of our engagement and wedding photos are. Anytime we need professional photos in the future, we are definitely calling up Ken!

My husband and I are THRILLED with our photos from Ken Kienow!! Ken is an amazing artist and a pleasure to work with. He made us feel completely at ease and relaxed during our engagement shoot and on our wedding day, making sure we got the best locations, poses, and lighting for our pictures. We are completely obsessed with the gorgeous photos of our big day, and cannot stop staring at them. Multiple friends have told us they love our photos too, and one friend even used our wedding album as an example for her wedding photographer a few weeks later. We highly recommend Ken Kienow Wedding Photography!

Kelsey is such an amazing photographer! But she is more than just talented…She is fun, spunky, and always has the right attire on to get you the best shots! She comes equipped and ready with her boots to lead you through fields and yards just to capture that perfect picture! She was also very attentive and did a great job in recreating some of the pictures I liked on Pinterest. That’s not to say she’s not creative on her own because she certainly is! I just had a few shots I wanted to replicate and she was so open and happy to make that happen for me! She was quick with family pictures during cocktail hour (and I have a BIG family!) so we were able to have more time to take our couple photos. During the wedding, Kelsey would just magically appear in the corner at the very right moment to snap that perfect shot. I didn’t even notice her! I just know she was able to capture all the important highlights of my wedding without being directly in front of me! All our guests who viewed our album raved about how they felt like the pictures really recreated that magical night for them. Her turnover time for the photos was unbelievable! We were able to enjoy our photos during our honeymoon! I’m from LA but I will certainly be back to have Kelsey take my family portraits when the time comes!

Booking Kelsey, from Ken Kienow Photography, was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. From our initial inquiry and phone chats to keeping in contact weeks after the wedding with our photos, she was amazing to work with throughout the entire process!

Her outgoing and easy going personality made me feel so comfortable as a bride on my wedding day! She had no problems roaming around the house the bridal party was getting ready at capturing candid shots, despite a packed house with a lot of friends and family. She made multiple trips back and forth between the bride and groom getting ready locations to make sure she didn't miss an important moment.

Prior to the ceremony she optimized her time to get the bridesmaids with bride and groomsmen with groom shots, as well as the bride and groom individual shots finished with. During the ceremony, you would have never noticed she was there, but she was able to get some amazing shots of the wedding party, us, the officiant and our guests. Following the ceremony she promptly took our requested family pictures and amazingly managed to get a family group shot with over 60 people!

The photos she took of my husband and I immediately after our wedding will be something I cherish for the rest of my life. She picked the most beautiful spots and gave us the perfect cues to capture that "just married bliss." The turned out absolutely beautiful. Once the reception got started she was able to get the perfect candid shots of our friends and family laughing, dancing, singing and dancing. There is not a bad picture in the entire bunch!

Choosing wedding vendors could be difficult, but booking Kelsey months in advance was the best decision we could have made!

This review is for Kelsey @ Ken Kienow Wedding Photography. First off, we'd just like to say that Kelsey is an amazing photographer and an amazing person. Everyone at our wedding kept raving about her. And everyone keeps raving about her photos.

Kelsey is super sweet and very personable. She made everyone feel comfortable during her photo shoots. You can tell she is a very experienced wedding photographer. She is always looking at the lighting (sun, clouds, etc) to find the perfect shot. Things during a wedding day never go as planned, but she adapted quickly. Kelsey was always making suggestions about when and where to shoot - even as things kept changing.

Kelsey's photos are of a timeless quality. They are the type of photos that will never go out of style. Our families will be enjoying her photos for years to come. She takes great portrait photos, but where she really shines is the candid moments she captures. You won't even notice she is taking your photo half of the time.

Working with Kelsey was very smooth. She always responded to our questions in a timely matter. We only wish all of our other wedding vendors were as easy to work with.

Highly recommended!

This review is for Kelsey Stewart. She was our photographer for our engagement shoot as well as our wedding. Kelsey is amazing! Because she knows the Central Coast so well, she took us to the most beautiful locations. The lighting and backgrounds in our photos are insane! She also has an easy going and bubbly personality that kept us relaxed and laughing the whole time! No fake smiles needed. We were blown away by the quality and candidness of the photos she captured at our wedding. To top it off, she turned our 800+ wedding photos around in less than a week!

Ken has been my wedding photographer crush for years. Even during the dark years when I told myself I never wanted to do a big wedding. His photos make you fall head over heels for the emotion captured.
Even though I did look around for a more economical option at the beginning, I knew I did not want to skimp on how my day was captured. It had to be Ken.
We used a friend for our engagement photos, and even though Ken only met us really the day of our wedding, he jumped right in and it was completely normal having him around. I was all about giving Ken whatever time he needed for anything because I wanted to be the girl in the pictures I had been oogling over for years. He did not disappoint. Having a photographer that is always there, always capturing, but never in the way is so great. And I know my shots are something I’ll treasure forever. Highly recommended and I can only hope to work with him again!

Ken is amazing. I don't even know how to put into words what a great photographer he was at our wedding. The quality on his photos were perfect. It was exactly what we wanted. He captured all the right moments. I didn't realize until after we received the pictures that the Golden Gate Bridge was in our background all along. It must have been because I was distracted with other things during our wedding.

I am quite bossy, bride or not, and Ken fit in perfect. He snapped photographs when asked, and he kept to the list that I provided him, which I really appreciated.

Ken has a great personality and it definitely shows through his photographs. I would recommend him to ANYONE! I would definitely use him again for future portraits and whatnot. He is probably one of the few photographs out there that provides pictures as fast that he does. Turnaround he states is 2 weeks, but we received all 900 photographs in 1.5 weeks while we were on our honeymoon!

We also used him for our engagement shoot. We love those too. He's just a really fun photographer. He's easy going, great to talk to, and he doesn't make you do those weird/awkward poses or moments "think of something funny."
