hi there, i'm kyle!

I’m the guy behind the lens; A lover of the outdoors, all things music, and of course, Photography! I’m based in beautiful Santa Barbara, CA, but am always looking for an excuse to travel! For Weddings, I'm available in all of California, Oregon, and Washington, for ZERO additional travel fees!

To me, honesty and authenticity reign over everything else. That is why I enjoy capturing genuine moments whether it be a beautiful landscape, human emotion and connection, or the identity of a brand. I find it to be truly amazing that we can capture moments and turn them into lifelong memories.

Kyle is a PRO that is extremely easy to work with. I was lucky he was available for my last minute proposal shoot. He came early and stayed a little later. Kyle has incredible timing and the ability to capture those candid moments. Kyle did a great job of making us comfortable and getting the best pictures. My fiancee cried when she saw the final product. Kyle exceeded our expectations.

My fiancé and I absolutely LOVE our photos taken by Kyle Cottrell! We felt so incredibly comfortable and he made the shoot fun for us.
We hired him for engagement photos and are thrilled to work with him again for our wedding! This guy really knows what he’s doing! I highly recommend!

We hired Kyle for our wedding photographer and could not be more thrilled with the end result! He was prompt in returning emails/questions, he was on time, and very good at what he does.
