Our wedding photos were extremely important to us. Shortly after getting engaged, we started researching wedding photographers. We quickly realized we needed a photographer who could capture the beauty of our outdoor venue. Dylan surpassed our expectations. He went to our venue several days before the wedding to determine the best lighting and helped us coordinate with our vendors regarding reception timing for sunset photos. He was very professional and calm. There was clear communication prior to the wedding regarding the day of timing and requested photos. I can't stop looking at our wedding photos and am thrilled to share them with our friends and family! Overall Dylan is a photographer that can be trusted to deliver beyond expectation. We look forward to using him in the future as our family grows.

Dream to work with!
My husband and I were searching for photographers for our wedding (May 2022) and when we came across Dylan Kyle's photos we knew that we wanted him to do our wedding photos. Our wedding was a dream and he was a dream to work with. He was happy to answer our questions and meet our needs by meeting us on our wedding day at 5:30 AM so we could catch the best shots which we did!!! He took time to find out what we were looking for and we knew we were going to be well taken care of. He is so great to work with and we are so pleased with the results. Do not look any further - Dylan Kyle is wonderful!

To say that Dylan is a great photographer is not enough. His ability to see the scenery, see the couple, and help create an organized, comfortable experience is so incredible!!! He did our engagement and wedding photos and we absolutely loved both. If you choose him for your special moments and special day, you will not be disappointed. His portfolio speaks for itself, and I hope you choose him.

Hire Dylan for amazing wedding photos!
If you want some truly amazing photos for your wedding, hire Dylan immediately! We hired Dylan for both our engagement and wedding pictures. When I was researching photographers, I really wanted someone who could capture the beauty of the surrounding landscape as well as some great wedding photos. Dylan is exactly that person. Because he started off doing landscape photography, he is able to incorporate that experience to create some epic wedding pictures. My best description of it would be this: have you ever tried to take a picture of a gorgeous sunset/coastline and think "Man, this isn't as beautiful or cool on my phone as is it in person."? Well, Dylan can bring that intensity to your picture and everyone can see just how amazing it really is. On top of that, Dylan is a very easy person to work with, and if you are an introverted and mellow person like myself and my husband, you know how important that is. We hope to hire Dylan for future projects because we know it will be worth every penny and his work just keeps getting better and better!

Fall Family Session
We hired Dylan for our family photos and are so amazed by his work! He was so good with our kids and our dog! He is friendly and patient! We took photos on our family property and without asking, he snapped some of the property that turned out stunning! Hire him immediately! You will not be sorry! His turnaround time was fast and the photos are so beautiful. Thank you, Dylan, truly.

Dylan was so amazing to work with! We booked him for our wedding and engagement photos and were so happy we did so. He exceeded all our expectations! We met him for the first time during our engagement photos and he made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and gave us great tips to pose and look natural. He also has a lot of great recommendations for places or backgrounds that are perfect for professional photos. 2019 was hard for wedding planning due to COVID, but Dylan worked alongside us every step of the way. When it came to our wedding day, the pictures turned out stunning! But again, he made us feel so comfortable and I really appreciated how he managed to calmly wrangle around my difficult family to capture all the perfect moments that we wanted. He also helped keep us on time without rushing us - to ensure we captured everything. He truly cares about each one of his clients and is someone I would recommend over and over again. I can’t wait to continue working with Dylan for the years to come beyond our wedding.
Amanda - Married 5/29/21
Dylan did our maternity photoshoot. We specifically chose Dylan for our shoot because of his ability to capture not only the people in his photos but the surrounding beauty (of the central coast specifically). We absolutely loved our pictures and still can’t decide which ones to put up. He was very professional and kind. If we got married again, I would also hands-down choose him as a wedding photographer too. Some people just have that “good eye” when it comes to photography. This can’t really be taught in my opinion. Thank you, Dylan! Looking forward to working with you in the future.

Phenomenal, Personable, Creative, Amazing!
Dylan was one of our favorite decisions we made for our wedding! First off, his eye for photography is, of course, amazing; as you can see in these gorgeous photos! Second, Dylan was so easy to connect with from the first moment we met. Being one who typically avoids being in the spotlight, he made us feel comfortable and in fact, it was fun! Dylan is so creative with his artistic eye, I love love love ALL the photos! Lastly, I really appreciated Dylan’s flexibility and understanding with the changes in our wedding due to Covid. He never held anything against us and always tried his best to make it work for us. I’m so happy we found Dylan! We will for sure hire him again in the future for our next photoshoot! Thank you, Dylan!!

Say YES to the Photographer!
We had Dylan capture both our engagement photos and our wedding photos, and we've been absolutely blown away by the results! We met with him prior to committing to the contract and immediately felt like he was a long-time friend, which made us so comfortable being on the other side of the camera. Throughout the wedding planning process, Dylan went above and beyond to be as helpful as possible, providing us with good tips/things to think of, and truly got to know us and the why behind some of the special moments/items that went into our day. As for the photos themselves, STUNNING is all I can say. He captured who we are and our hearts so perfectly. With the way he photographs the landscaping and the people in our photos, we truly felt we got to re-live every second, emotion, and detail of our day while scrolling through pictures. When you hire Dylan, you are hiring more than just a wedding photographer, and you will undoubtedly receive phenomenal photos of the best day of your life. I would absolutely recommend him, 10 out of 5 stars!!

COVID sucks but Dylan Kyle did NOT disappoint
Dylan Kyle was absolutely SPECTACULAR! We booked Dylan last October before COVID was even a thing! As the months progressed, all of our wedding plans began to crumble and we were even forced to change venue weeks before the wedding. We were determined to still get married, whatever that day looked like, and Dylan was on board and so supportive! We are from AZ and planning our SLO destination wedding during COVID was definitely stressful, but Dylan helped in every way he possibly could to decrease that stress- he even helped find me an MUA! Our photos turned out so beautiful! (Chefs KISS)! He was flexible, professional, funny, and extremely detailed! He literally thought of everything and even tried some cool experimental shots which made our day look even more like a fairytale! We couldn't be happier with how everything turned out! We love him and highly recommend him to everyone! Dylan will be our guy for any future photo needs!

Covid Micro wedding Bliss
Any bride who has planned/ or is currently planning a wedding during Covid knows the stress and uncertainty can sometimes be overwhelming beyond belief. Dylan was there for us every step of the way. Every couple would be lucky to have Dylan as a photographer. Not only is he an amazing photographer, but he was also incredibly flexible with all of our planning and rearranging locations, dates, times, etc. At one point during my wedding, he even took the reins as a part wedding coordinator and made sure everyone was being directed to the correct spots! It was so amazing to know we could rely on Dylan! He's also very very good at capturing the best moments. I will cherish these photos forever. Our wedding may not have turned out how we originally planned, but I believe it turned out even better than we could have imagined. Thanks to Dylan's work (and non-photographer-related help on the big day!) these pictures show proof of that. I'm excited for Dylan to be our photographer for many years to come.

Beautiful Winter Day
Dylan takes beautiful pictures! He is easy to work with and he takes charge to direct a great picture. RECOMMENDED! My pictures came out beautiful!

Holiday Mini Session
Dylan did such an amazing job with our family photo mini-shoot! We included our 9-week-old baby, and didn't have to think of a thing! We coordinated our outfits and Dylan handled the rest! He knew exactly how to attract a baby's attention, and helped us pose while still appearing natural (not an easy thing on your own!). A true professional! We got so many great shots, it's tough to choose the winner for our holiday greeting cards! We'll definitely be hiring Dylan again! Thank you for the captured memories!

Wonderful photographer! Must book
Wow wow wow! I cannot say enough nice things about Dylan. He is extremely talented, and creative, as well as an overall awesome person. I feel he genuinely listened to what we wanted and delivered exceptional photos for both our wedding and engagement. We would hire him in heartbeat for any other photo needs and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a talented and professional photographer.

Santa Barbara Wedding
Dylan did such an excellent job on our wedding photos at the Santa Barbara Courthouse. He arrived at our air BnB on time and was ready to get started shooting candids of our family and kids. We had a very small wedding, so he took the time to make sure he took photos of everyone who was there as he waited for us to get ready for our first look. His experience in landscape photography is what originally caught my attention. He used his experience in that genre to capture the unique beauty at the Santa Barbara Courthouse. I couldn't be more thrilled with the photos we received. We had a fun time shooting, it was natural and easy-going. A true pro-highly I recommend!
Dina - Married on 10/20/2019
So easy to work with!
We are so happy we chose Dylan Kyle as our photographer. He is passionate about what he does, is great at it and was so easy to work with. He's also really humble for how talented he is. He was interested in our story and our needs from the first conversation. He took the time to scout out the location before the wedding, and we are so glad he did. Our venue was on the main street and looks pretty industrial from the outside, but Dylan found this beautiful little creek area in the back that was the most picturesque setting we could have hoped for. As most couples are new at wedding planning, Dylan really helped us with timing and scheduling decisions, and his suggested poses worked out incredibly. Dylan was able to capture so many beautiful moments and found vivid ways to capture light and color. Don't take our word for it though, just take a look at his website, his photos speak for themselves.
Jenevieve - Married on 8/17/2019
Just what we wanted!
Dylan’s photos are remarkable! At first, I was uncertain about going with a fairly new photographer but I’m so glad we did! From landscapes to portraits to family photos, Dylan can do it all. He went above and beyond on our wedding day and captured those special moments that we hope to share with generations to come. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for engagement, family, or event photos!
Danielle A. - Married on 7/19/2019
Dylan captured exactly what I was looking for for our stormy beach wedding day!!
The photos are amazing, everyone we know is complimenting us and saying they should win an award. Thanks, Dylan!! :)

Obsessed with our engagement photos!
We saw Dylan's work online and really liked his creativity in bringing people and landscapes together. We booked him for our wedding and the package included a mini-engagement session. Since we were only in town for the weekend, we arranged the session with Dylan on Saturday at sunset. There was lots of rain in the forecast, and Dylan was flexible enough to happily reschedule us for Sunday. Unfortunately, it continued to rain on Sunday, but Dylan was still willing to work with us that day. The photos came out perfect--nice and bright despite the weather! I would definitely recommend Dylan and can't wait for him to photograph our wedding next April!

Captured all the special moments
Dylan photographed my wedding at Point San Luis Lighthouse and I could not be happier with the results!!
He was amazing to work with!! Extremely professional! I will treasure my photos for a lifetime!

Last Minute Family Shoot
I was so grateful Dylan was able to set up a family session on such short notice while we were visiting the area. He is great with kids of all ages and so patient. We are so happy with the beautiful images he captured for our family. I would definitely recommend him for his professionalism, technique, eye for detail, timeliness, and price. Thank you, Dylan!!

Biddle Ranch Family Photos
Dylan is a legend. On less than one week's notice, Dylan arranges and executes an incredible family photoshoot at a local winery in San Luis Obispo. It is no easy task coordinating photos with 24 people, 10 of whom are kids under 10 years old and Dylan was a master. He was super efficient, executed all the shots we wanted and had the images back to us less than 3 days later. We will absolutely use Dylan again in the future. Thanks so much to the entire family!

October Beach Wedding
After going through Dylan’s amazing portfolio, we knew we had to get Dylan to capture our special day. My husband and I got married in early October on the Beach in San Simeon, CA. We had a small ceremony and Dylan was very flexible and mindful about our special day. He was punctual in meeting up with us and guiding us through our photo session before the ceremony. Dylan is the real deal, passionate about photography, and he’s funny (which really helped with our photography sessions)!
Our photographs came out wonderful! He captured our intimate moments that help to tell our love story!
Cat - Married on 10/06/2018
On the day
Fee: Very reasonable and a very great deal! He accepted payment via Venmo since we lived far. I’m sure he takes other forms of payment.
We didn’t have a lot of time to plan for our wedding and we were so glad Dylan was available on our wedding date. We planned the wedding ourselves and he made wedding planning so much easier for us since we knew we hired a great photographer. He was very attentive to how we wanted our photos to look and we made sure he’d capture great moments during the ceremony and reception. We hired him for a small, intimate wedding in the SLO area. We highly recommend him! We loved the photos and he’s a great photographer!of: He came on time, dressed appropriately and he was on top of it. He worked very well with the videographer too.
The best part: The photos were available earlier than expected and we loved all of them!!!
I’ll be frank for a minute, for the bride: girl, he will make you look like a walking angel in you’re photos!!! I kid you not!! His editing skills are really good! He made me look like I lost inches in the right places (despite my attempts to diet) and made me look naturally flawless. I’m making it sound like the wedding is all about the bride (it is, just kidding) but brides, you should really consider him!!!
He was able to capture photos that would make us relive the moments! When We showed our family and friends the photos, everyone couldn’t stop smiling. That's what we wanted, to look at the photos and smile as we remember how fun it was. Zero complaints from us at all. The photos, honestly, exceeded our expectations! We wanted digital copies of the photos only, but we think he offers tangible photos too. The files are huge, and great have great quality. We were able to print great-quality photos for our album! Thanks, Dylan! :)))
Malox - Married on 09/15/2018
We love our family photos. Dylan was so patient with our 3-year-old. Our little one doesn't like to take pictures but we got so many beautiful shots. He was so creative and nice. So if you want to get really nice pictures of your family give him a call!

Paso Robles Wedding
Dylan recently photographed our wedding. He met with us before the wedding and went over the timetables and specifics of what we wanted. Then he blew us away, he had already scouted some spots to take our couple's photos and where we would take our family shots. He was spot-on with all his recommendations while still caring about our input. On the day of the wedding he put us at ease with his calm and professional demeanor. And let me tell you he has an amazing eye for photography. When he finished editing the pics and sent them to us we were floored. They were amazing and magical and perfectly captured our special day. I can not recommend him highly enough.

Four Generation Photographs
Great to find Dylan Kyle Photography on Thumbtack and happy with his all-around excellence! I could not have asked for more from start to finish with photographs that capture the intangible sparks of life. Dylan was able to work effectively at our family gathering of 4 generations: 96-year-old great-grandmother in a wheelchair on one end of the spectrum to 18-month-old great-granddaughter on the other, plus all the rest of us in between. It was a challenging process because many had not seen each other for a long time. However, Dylan was flexible and inventive in positioning himself to capture just those right moments. The resulting photos are family keepsakes. I would hire him again, whenever we are in his vicinity of San Luis Obispo.

Our First Family Photos
Dylan is super talented, very flexible, and really affordable! He had great vision and was so patient with our 2-month-old. We spent an hour with him and got so many beautiful shots. It was really hard to choose which ones we liked best! I will definitely be calling on him again in the future.
