As a wedding planner I am always
look for the best vendors that matches the unique requests of my clients. I mostly organize elopements and small weddings for couples from abroad. When it comes to photography styles and budget, there are broad ranges in the Santa Barbara area. With Head & Heart Photography, (which is created and operated by Kiel of Kiel Rucker Photography), we found a great agency offering a team of talented and professional photographers. Not only does H&H offer full-day bundles, their elopement package with up to two-hours of photography suits perfectly clients who are looking for a smaller investment. I like the easiness yet professional communication with Head & Heart. They even make the booking procedure easy for my international clients. I look forward to continuing my cooperation
with the team of Head & Heart.

Thank you so much for sharing your experience with Head & Heart Photography and our photographers! The feeling absolutely mutual, always looking forward to working with you!

If you’re looking for talent, variety, and flexibility in your event photography to suit all your needs, stop right HERE and look no further.

Head & Heart photography captured a farm to table symposium for a group of event professionals that we hosted and they did a phenomenal job in every aspect. We could not have been more thrilled with both
the quality of the images as well as the quality of the photographers who captured the event.

From start to finish of the event both Braydon and Deb were extremely professional and personable. They worked hard to unobtrusively photograph all the gorgeous details, beautiful colors and the ongoing activity of the interactive afternoon.

They did not miss a single detail or opportunity to capture candid moments among this vivacious group. My favorite moment is when at one point Deb noticed me standing to the back of the room watching the presentation take place, and she gently directed me into some poses to snap some photos of me amongst the setup venue while the event taking place in the background. Literally, she CAPTURED the essence of the event behind me and made it so effortless to get
flattering images of me that I will use for my website, promotion and as headshots for years to come.

The best part? The turnaround of the Images. So quick! We received a handful of teaser images from Braydon within 24 hours, which allowed for us to share the stunning images in the social channels to fellow event pros and attendees while the buzz of the afternoon was still palpable. The photos were stunning, colorful, artistic and captured the afternoon perfectly.

The icing on the cake is that every single wedding planner and event professional that attended the event were impressed not just with the gorgeous quality of the images, but also with having received them so quickly. That is the highest form of flattery for a photographer. Having A-List wedding pros in awe of the quality and beauty of the photos within hours of the event.

I look forward to partnering with Head & Heart in the near future, and hope you do too!.”


Thank you for sharing! It's always a pleasure to work you and your team :)
