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."

We hired Kelsey to be our wedding photographer, and COULD NOT BE HAPPIER WITH THE PICTURES. We had a barn wedding in Arroyo Grande, and the pictures from the Engagement shoot and Wedding were both beautiful. We knew we loved her style before we hired her, and were just blown away by how charming she was, and how easy she was to work with. She put Chris and I at ease from the moment we met her for our engagement shoot, and she handled the big group photos at the wedding SO WELL. Her and her assistant were so professional at the wedding, and we really enjoyed the picture taking process. They were quick, but thorough, and we were so pleased by the amount of time we had left to enjoy with our guests! Also- we got our pictures back (with a lovely slideshow) less than 2 weeks after the wedding. That's awesome. I highly recommend Kelsey as a photographer for your wedding.

Having Kelsey as our photographer was one of the highlights of our wedding day. She and assistant Carly were with us a full 11 (!!) hours and never stopped clicking away or seemed to tire out. They put everybody at ease, even during hectic large family portraits. We received our pictures back before we even got home from the honeymoon! Not only that, those pictures capture the most amazing moments - my sister sobbing during my father/daughter dance, the excitement on my face after the ceremony, and my groom's amazing dance moves on the dance floor. Thank you Kelsey and Carly!!

There is SO MUCH to say about Ken Kienow. To start, he is a photographer for photographers. As a photographer myself, I was very picky when it came to hiring someone to photograph my wedding. I wanted to find someone who was inspiring, matched my vision, and who I trusted to let me stay on the other side of the camera.

For years, I have been “stalking” and studying Ken’s work and have watched his skills grow exponentially. He has brought so much motivation to my own work and inspires me to think outside the box.

When my husband and I were first engaged, by first email was to Ken to set our date. His responses were always fast and effervescent, exactly what a stressed out bride needs. Not only are his prices reasonable for his insane talents, but he offers engagement sessions at a very low cost to get couple comfortable in front of the camera and a feel for how the big day is going to be.

By the time my the wedding came around, Ken and I had a great plan in place and he was up for all ideas, plans, hiccups, and schedule shifts that always come with weddings!

His work was everything we were hoping for and much, much more! The richness and saturation in all of his photos are incredible and let us remember the love in the atmosphere on our big day.

Ken, you are a magician. Our wedding day could not have gone any better with a huge thanks to you! I can't tell you enough, but will try one more time: You are an extraordinary artist.

Do yourself a favor and book with Ken Kienow Photography!

Ken shot our engagement photos around San Luis Obispo and then Ken and Chelsea shot our wedding. I cannot imagine a better photographer for weddings and engagements than Ken Kienow. For me, when we were considering photographers, the most important thing was catching the actual emotions and special moments. Ken is a master at this. He is also great at portraits, staging, just everything. He got the details shots I wanted too.
Photography is one area where I've heard nearly every bride/couple have some issue/problem/missed photo after their wedding that can't be resolved- we have not one single issue or regret with our photos from Ken Kienow. The only problem with Ken? You will have way too many simply amazing photos to choose from. He is also FAST. I have no clue how he gets such great shots and gets them back to us in what seems like no time at all.
His work captures the feelings you have inside. My now-husband and I aren't models or even all that photogenic- Ken sees just how to make you feel natural and that results in photos we'll love forever. We get compliments on these photos to no end.
For our wedding- when we got the photos from Ken & I looked through them, I cried and laughed and was happy all over again- his photos let you relive that day. They caught so many beautiful moments. There is no way to capture every single moment on film- but Ken gets so so many in such touching photos. His portraits of me were also stunning - I have never felt that a picture of me could be printed/published/in a magazine until I saw some of Ken's photos. He sees whatever is beautiful about you, your loved ones, and your love, and captures it on film.

Ken, thank you so so much!

Where do I begin?! Ken Kienow was the best decision! As many, our photography was one of the most important decisions while planning our wedding. I knew it needed to be top notch. I choose right when deciding on Ken Kienow. I worked with Kelsey, Amber (and Katie her assistant) AND Ken – all of which were extremely helpful and proactive on whatever question/email had been received. Day of, our photographers captured every little detail I had put into the wedding. Most of my pictures were planed and we were well organized which really helped. During that process, no matter what I wanted, they were flexible, understanding and made it happen. They really did not skip a single beat. I’m so glad that I have amazing wedding pictures to cherish for a lifetime. Thank you guys!!!

Ken is the BEST. Not only is he an incredibly talented photographer, but he's also just a super-nice guy who everyone likes being around. Ken did our engagement photos and shot for 10 hours on our wedding day. I had so many people remark that it seemed like Ken was able to be in all places at all times. That's how great his coverage is -- he doesn't miss a moment. We also had a very large wedding party, but that didn't stop Ken from capturing beautiful photos of the whole group. After our venue, Ken was the first vendor we booked. As soon as I saw his portfolio of work from other weddings at our venue and elsewhere, I knew we had found our photographer. I would say that my now-husband and I are SUPER picky when it comes to photography, and we both loved Ken's aesthetic and style. Our engagement and wedding photos are truly treasures to my husband and me, and I believe them to be priceless.

This is long overdue! Kelsey at Ken Kienow Photography was so amazing and wonderful on our wedding day. She was super organized and patient and captured every moment we could have imagined. We got so many compliments on our pictures and from guests remarking how they didn't even notice she was there but yet managed to capture every detail of the wedding. Our pictures were done super quick which allowed us to look at them over a drink on our honeymoon in Belize, so FUN!!. I could not recommend Kelsey and Ken Kienow photography enough, they were just perfect in every way.

Ken is beyond awesome! Ken was refereed to us from another photographer ( photog-to-photog recommendation, that has to be legit right?!?!?!....SO RIGHT!!!!) After we web-stalked him for a bit we had an online Google chat with him and loved his energy as mich as his blog pics! His customer service is ridiculous!!! In the best way!!!! he emails you back instantly, makes you feel so important and a priority...and this was invaluable to us!!! We got our wedding pictures back in less than two weeks from our wedding date, that is un-heard-of people!!!! And we LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!! Yes, we have the "normal" wedding pics that our parents will love and we love, but also tons of candid, detailed shots that are amazing and so different, exactly what we wanted! Our venue was unique ( airplane hangar!) and he captured it beautifully!!! He becomes part of your celebration, makes your family and bridal party feel at ease, you never really "see" him during the ceremony or the reception but he was there, you have the pictures to prove it...one of our groomsmen said he was like a "photography ninja"...so awesome! :) Your wedding will go by SO FAST, trust me girls, its true what they say...and getting to browse through all of your photos from Ken will be like re-living the most perfect day...and this makes us SO happy! THANK YOU KEN!!!
