Traveling wedding and elopement photographer for stylish, adventurous couples getting married outdoors

Hi, I'm Kaci!

I'm a published and award-winning destination wedding photographer based out of San Diego, California.  I've learned to adapt to every environment from humid, tropical white sandy beaches to windy barren salt flats and dry deserts. I know how to roll with whatever comes our way on your wedding day.

The photos we compose together will forever remind you of how much you love each other. That's my secret sauce - creating a safe space for you to interact, enjoy your time together and be present during your wedding day to soak it all in. 

Kaci Lou Photography

Every couple is unique and so is their wedding. That's why I take the time to get to know you and your partner before the big day; to understand your vision and capture your personality and style.

You don't want to get your wedding "over with" (and if you do, let's change that). You want an unforgettable day that you wish would never end and have breath-taking photos to remember it all. Sound like you? Please contact me to get the ball rollin'!

My photos are where adventure meets elegance. I call it adventure-glam.  The outdoors never looked so good! 

"Kaci made our experience absolutely amazing. We felt so comfortable, we laughed we cried and had the best time with her. She made it a point to remind us why we were doing the photos, because of the love we shared and want to share for the rest of our lives. That meant everything to us! Also her work speaks for itself but I was overwhelmed with how beautiful the pictures are!"

So many amazing pictures! How am I going to ever going to decide which ones to display?! Thank you again! I could not have imagined a better fit for us and I am so glad I stumbled across you! You have no idea how many other photographers I looked at and inquired about but never found the right fit until you! We will be forever grateful for the part you played in our big day! You literally captured every little detail that I would not have thought of and they bring us right back to that day!

"Kaci Lou is wonderful! She cares about you and keeps in touch all along the engagement process, which was great. Her eye for the right light and ambience is magnificent - I swear I don’t look as good as I do in her photos! What I appreciated most was her ability to step in and be personable and helpful at the right moment, and step back and blend in at the right moment during our wedding day. That’s so important! We are so lucky to have to capture our wedding day!"

We were both a little nervous, and tend to not like having pictures taken. Kaci made us feel so comfortable that our true selves were able to shine through in the photos, and we had a blast! Kaci is a true professional who not only strives for perfection in her photography, but works to make the entire experience a memorable one for her clients. She also made our pup feel super comfortable too! We can not wait to see the final product, but the couple sneak peeks we have seen were absolutely incredible and exactly what we wanted; natural, fun, and adventurous."

Kaci is absolutely amazing! We were so nervous (mainly me lol) to be photographed by a stranger but she made the entire experience so comfortable and everything felt natural! We knew she would make our day stress free and capture all the special moments of our wedding day."

Kaci is seriously beyond talented! She takes the time to get to know you and makes your entire session a blast! My then fiancé and I had never had pictures taken together before and she walked us through the whole thing and made it so much fun! Not only did we find an amazingly talented photographer, we made a friend! I am usually not a fan of getting my pictures done because they are normally boring and tedious. However this was not the case with Kaci. She did an excellent job of keeping the photo shoot entertaining as well as professional. I can honestly say that this was the first time I actually had fun getting my picture taken. Not only was the experience fun, but the pictures came out amazing"
