Kiel Rucker Photography | Santa Barbara wedding photographer
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 love for sunlight, nature, travel and the intense feeling of freedom felt in expansive landscapes found both at his home in California and around the world. His primary goal in photography is to share this beauty, and these experiences, with others – to inspire people to go out and experience their own innate relationship with the Earth and it’s inhabitants for themselves. Seven years ago, Kiel found that wedding photography is quite likely the perfect way to express his love for the interplay of light, emotion and simply being with others who appreciate life in a similar way; who appreciate this brief and beautiful time we get to share here. Kiel’s warm presence reflects his motivation and creates a welcoming, inclusive atmosphere for all those around him – allowing him to capture genuine feelings and to create bright, artistic images that will be enjoyed by all who view them for generations to come.
