Hi there!

I'm Kyle Cottrell, a Wedding and Destination Photographer based on the beautiful Central Coast of California! I love to photograph anywhere in California and the Pacific Northwest with no travel fees (Woo!). After spending the first 25 years of my life in California, I plan on relocating up north to Seattle very soon!!

To me, honesty and authenticity reign over everything else. That is why I enjoy capturing love in its truest form, freezing genuine moments that will last with you for a lifetime. My goal is to provide my clients ease of mind knowing they are moving forward in their lives while having beautiful photos they can reflect back on.

Here’s some things I dig!

  • Sipping a good cup of coffee in the morning, or at anytime really. You can never have too much coffee, am I right, or am I right?

  • Anything that involves outdoors, especially nature. I’m always down for a long hike in the mountains, or a slow walk on the beach.

  • Big music fan, but who isn’t right? Before photography, my dream was to be a famous musician, I even went to school for it, but that obviously didn’t work out.
    Now I just pick up the acoustic guitar a couple times a month and try and act like I know what I’m doing.

  • Meaningful conversation. I love analyzing and talking about TV, films, and music, or talking about mental and physical health. As much as I love sports and good weather,
    I can only handle small talk for so long.

  • Having fun and not taking life too seriously. I’m passionate and carefree, and if you are too, we’ll be a great match!

If you’ve made it this far, I assume you are here because you have a story to tell and need help capturing it. You've come to the right place.

I'd absolutely love to connect with you! Whether you're ready to work together, or if you have cold feet, don't be shy to contact me! Lets get to know each other over a cup of coffee and bring your vision to life!
