As an artist with a love of color and light, and a passion for landscapes and people, I like to combine all aspects, while capturing your special day memories. I use my ability to adapt to any situation or environment, and my fun and vibrant editing style to provide real, romantic, and timeless images. I'm committed to celebrating the love between all couples and people of any ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, age, and body type whether it's a family portrait or a beautiful wedding. Not just a photographer but a friend, my casual yet professional workflow shines through to make sure you and your loved ones are as comfortable as possible from the first phone call to the final product. 


The Knot Best of Weddings - 2022 Pick

Hi there! Thanks so much for stopping by!

I'm Dylan, and my last name is Kyle. Yup. Two first names!

I grew up here in SLO and moved back about 6 years ago when this crazy idea came to turn my hobby into a career. My favorite color is midnight blue and I'm engaged to the love of my life Rachel. When I'm not out capturing memories, you can find me hiking, golfing, or photographing the amazing views this world has to offer. Top any of those off with a dutch crunch deli sandwich and a cold kombucha and I'm as happy as I can be.

But in all seriousness...

I've always loved creating images. From disposable cameras to my first photography class at Cuesta College, I've always loved being able to capture memories. But really, it was in 2014 when I bought a digital camera for a backpacking trip through New Zealand where the passion caught fire. Since then, I never stopped. I started chasing sunsets and taking trips that I never would have gone on if it wasn't for a camera. I found something that came so naturally, which I actually enjoyed, that with enough humbling compliments I decided to start taking pictures of people. I started by taking pictures of all my friends, their kids, and my boss's wedding, and the next thing I knew, referrals came in one after another, and I never looked back. Not only does photography now support me, but it truly makes me happy. It's not just a job for me.  It actually defines me as a person. When I think about what I do for a living, and what I do for fun, it's pretty rare that the answer is the same for both.
