    Location(s)

    Kiel is a California native who has seen enough of the world to realize how fortunate he is to call Santa Barbara home, though not quite enough to stay in one place for too long. His attraction to fine art wedding photography grew out of a passion for sunlight, nature, travel and the intense feeling of freedom found in expansive landscapes found both at home in California and around the world.
