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!!!

WOW! I found Ken through my sister-in-law, who hired him for her wedding a few years ago. He did an amazing job at her wedding, and I hope she doesn't read this because I think he did an even better job on mine, but I might be biased. :) He is professional, fun to be around (which is important as you will be spending most of the time at your wedding with him), and a true artist of photography. When I first started planning I fantasized about having Jose Villa as a photographer, the idea of which was quickly snuffed out when I saw his prices. I would venture to say that not even Villa could have taken better photos than Ken and his assistant Kelsey, and their value is incredible. My brother-in-law is now planning his wedding and they picked the date entirely according to when Ken will be able to shoot their wedding. I highly suggest you do the same!

Ken was really, really fantastic. Really. He is an extremely talented photographer, both in his photos as well as his interpersonal skills.

His photos do an amazing job of capturing not just the obvious things (you'll get a photo of your dress and nice posed family pictures no matter who you choose), but he also manages to really capture the moments. The nervous faces, the hugs, the happy friends and the partying. Looking through the photos let me relive the day, as you can really see the emotion in each picture. In fact, I think the pictures of the dancing are some of my favorites!

Ken fit so well in to the craziness of the day. He didn't detract attention from anyone, but didn't blend in to the background so much that he couldn't take control when he needed to capture certain moments or groups. My husband and I both felt like he was just another one of our friends, and we received the same comments from family and members of our wedding party.

Ken is a real talent, a real steal for the quality you get and I couldn't say enough good things about him!!

Kelsey Stewart took our pictures for our engagement shoot and wedding day. We loved her. Her energy was contagious and kept us going the whole time. She let us get creative with our shots and she directed us when needed. She has such a great eye for catching those little moments. Kelsey is truly a dear to work with.

Since she is the associate to Ken Kienow her rate fit out budget and totally worth every penny.

She is also very quick when it comes to getting pictures back to us. This company also offers online viewing of pictures and free downloads that in itself is worth its price.

Of all the vendors we hired for our wedding, time and again we found ourselves being incredibly thankful that we found Ken. For us, the photographs of our engagement and wedding were the only things that would be left behind after the music stopped playing, the cupcakes were eaten, and the dress was destroyed by the dirt and debris of our winery venue.

When we first met Ken, we had done the appropriate amount of website stalking, so we had a sense of his quality work and style that is Ken Kienow. We were really excited and anxious to meet him. It was like a blind date - we can see how cool Ken is from his online persona - but will he think we are cool too?

We met at Sally Loo's and instantly felt a strong repertoire with him. At first you thinks that the "blind date" I mentioned earlier was going off without a hitch - but in reality, Ken is like this with EVERYONE. He immediately puts you at ease, is cool and collected and completely approachable. His work in person was just stunning, his personality one that made you instantly want to be friends with him.

He shot our engagement photos in SF on my birthday - what a great way to ring in #29. He explored the Mission District alongside us, finding inconspicuous doorways and nooks to shoot some truly spectacular images. Sunset images along walkways overlooking the Bay Bridge still give us great memories of that day.

While we kept in email and Facebook contact, it wasn't until our wedding that we saw Ken again. He was hilarious (without creating a presence on a day that usually has more than enough presence to go around!), engaging, professional, timely and extremely adept with what he was doing. He scouted out our venue to get the right look and feel for our pictures, and was totally in it to stomp around in fields and navigating around nosy sheep to catch some great memories.

Ken was everywhere in the sense that he captured EVERY aspect of our wedding, and yet nowhere because he was never in the way at any point. He caught candids of me looking at my new husband or us laughing with our family and friends that are truly priceless - I could never thank Ken enough for encapsulating these memories and this incredible day for us. He comes with the highest of recommendations.

He was hilarious (without creating a presence on a day that usually has more than enough presence to go around!), engaging, professional, timely and extremely adept with what he was doing. He scouted out our venue to get the right look and feel for our pictures, and was totally in it to stomp around in fields and navigating around nosy sheep to catch some great memories.

Ken was everywhere in the sense that he captured EVERY aspect of our wedding, and yet nowhere because he was never in the way at any point. He caught candids of me looking at my new husband or us laughing with our family and friends that are truly priceless - I could never thank Ken enough for encapsulating these memories and this incredible day for us. He comes with the highest of recommendations. Read less

I will keep this short because it doesn't need to be long. Ken is AMAZING, GIFTED, KIND, FLEXIBLE, GENUINE, LOVES WHAT HE DOES, SO RESPONSIVE, SO PROFESSIONAL, QUICKEST TURN AROUND TIME EVER.....seriously, Brian and I could not have asked for a better photographer for us. He gave us the most beautiful, gorgeous, moving, tingles-down-our-spine photos. We freaking love, Ken. Anyone and everyone should hire him. Go Ken Kienow....you ROCK. : )

When I inquired about availablitity for our wedding (just 3 months from our wedding date), Ken was booked, but immediately responded and referred me to his associate, Kelsey. We looked at her portfolio and loved her work. After speaking to Kelsey, we knew she would be perfect for our wedding and we were right! We really wanted a focus on candid photos of the day and not so many posed photos, and Kelsey did exactly what we asked. She captured all of the beautiful, honest moments of our day, and we are so thrilled with the result. Kelsey was extremely warm and positive in all of our communication with her, and was the same on our wedding day. She made us and our guests comfortable and was great at capturing everything. If I saw a moment I wanted a picture of, she was already taking pictures of it, or was nearby enough that I could ask her to get a picture of it, so I feel like she didn't miss a thing. She was always present, but never intrusive. She stayed out of the way and let the moments happen naturally and then captured them. We are so happy to have chosen her as our wedding photographer!

Ken Kienow, oh where do I begin? Recently I have been speechless when Ken Kienow comes to mind, and it's only because there are no words to describe the memories he has given to me on the best day of my life. But he deserves an amazing review, so that is what I want to give him.

My husband and I just returned from Maui where we got married on April 14 and the fabulous Ken Kienow shot our wedding. The search for a wedding photographer was way too long and stressful than it should have been as one of the best wedding photographers was right in our backyard. Meaning, we knew about Ken Kienow back in October as he shot my sister's wedding and produced the most amazing photos we had ever seen. But taking him to Maui with us seemed pretty far fetched. The thought really didn't cross our minds until we saw the local photographers that my planner tried to set us up with and in the back of my mind I kept comparing their work to Ken's. Nothing compared.

It wasn't until a month before my wedding, and still not comfortable with any of the photographers in Maui, I decided to email Ken. Fortunately he was free, and because it was so last minute he gave me a great deal that made it impossible to pass up. Best decision I ever made.

Ken was SO great to work with before, during, and after the wedding. You really have to like your photographer because he is going to be around you a lot on what might be the most important day of your life. Ken was such a pleasure to be around. He is creative, consistent, likable, a great observer and he has this amazing ability to immerse himself in the crowd and you have no clue he is taking the most memorable shots you could even imagine.

Our wedding was on April 14, we received all of our photos on April 20 with a slideshow that he created to music. What kind of wedding photographer gets you your photos 6 days after your wedding AND puts together a slideshow you can send to all of your friends. Ken Kienow is one of a kind.

Ken (and his associate Kelsey) are both insanely wonderful people who have a passion and heart for photography, their couples, and insanely awesome customer service. We knew Ken had to be a part of our wedding story after he captured our proposal so perfectly. He was an absolute JOY to have around on our wedding day (and to communicate with the days leading up to the wedding). He is always helpful and we have stunning (and totally fun/rad) photos to show for it. I should note, we are wedding photographers ourselves so our standards are impossibly high and photos are so important to us and Ken rocked in every way.

Ken has such a positive demeanor about him. When we first met him for an interview you couldn't help but just smile. Super easy going. Made us feel completely at ease. The day of the wedding seemed seemless. His organization and direction for those in the wedding party/family was very casual. Nothing felt forced, unnatural, or awkward.

The pictures he was able to capture after the ceremony were just as good. He seemed to capture every detail and every guest.

So thankful we came across his work. The pictures we have of our wedding seem to tell a complete story, even for those moments we were not in.

Highly recommend.

I could not be happier that I chose Ken Kienow to be our wedding photographer, he is THE BEST!!! Not only is his work amazing, but he is just a joy to work with. He is always positive, super nice, flexible, and makes everyone feel comfortable. We had a large group for our wedding party and we were kind of hard to reign in (running late, hard to coordinate, etc) and Ken was completely patient and got some AMAZING shots of us all. My guests, my family and friends kept coming up to me telling me how great our photographer was! We just received the book he put together for us and it is so beautiful. Choosing Ken was truly one of the best decisions we made for our wedding HIGHLY recommended!

I am a full-time wedding photographer, so finding the perfect photographer for my own wedding was at the top of our list. Ken delivered above and beyond everything we could have hoped. Brides spend more time with their photographer than just about any other vendor, so it was important for me to find someone who I felt completely comfortable around. Ken is simultaneously easy-going and professional. All of our guests are still raving about him 3 months later. And, best of all, we have an incredible set of photos that document a perfect day that just flew by. Ken's photographs are amazing and his customer service is out of this world. Eleven stars out of five. Just go ahead and hire him - it will be the best decision you make in all of your wedding planning!

Choosing Ken Kienow as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our big day. I truly felt that he and his assistant, Kelsey, were just a part of our big party.
If you have any appreciation for an artist's eye, you will appreciate Ken's workmanship and creativity. And he was able to capture every single touching, important, funny moment without being invasive in any way.
In fact, the thing I appreciate most about Ken is his sheer joy in his work. He LOVES what he does, and because of that, I have the most breathtaking photos to appreciate for the rest of my life.
Thank you so much, Ken!
I wish you amazing success!
