Kauai Wedding Photography

I’m Keith. I can find humor in anything; literally anything. I obtained my degree in Studio Art where I drew, painted, designed and focused in photography. Fresh out of college I married my high school sweet heart/surf partner, and began work as staff photographer and photo editor for a surf lifestyle, art and music magazine. I got to travel a bit, all while learning the art of the camera and meeting creative people along the way. I merged photojournalistic style into wedding work and opened a studio all before moving to the beautiful garden island of Kauai. Spending time with my family, in the ocean and traveling are important to me. I’ve had the opportunity to work with notable actors, bands, models and athletes. I’m passionate about working with people. I’d be happy to be your Kauai wedding photographer or work with you on any of your photographic needs.
I’m honored to have been published in:
Wedding Wire, The Knot, Travel+Leisure, ESPN, New York Post, Rolling Stone Italy, Free People, Kauai Lifestyle Magazine and many more.


Keith Ketchum was the best choice we made regarding our wedding. In the midst of all the chaos he was calm. From the first meeting he was so incredibly down to earth. My husband and I really felt like he was one of our long time friends. Not only is he friendly but he is professional and captures every moment. He was able to capture every important candid moment in such a unique modern way and the traditional group photos needed for the classic album desired by family members. As the wedding came to a close we had so many people ask us how we met our photographer. I think everyone left with one of his cards that night because there wasn’t a person that wasn’t impressed. I will never recommend or use another photographer. Keith is a one of a kind.

Keith has been photographing for us at the magazine for a year now. He has a great eye, creates amazing imagery and is very easy to work with. Really terrific work!

We couldn’t be happier with the results. To begin with, Keith was extremely professional and accessible in the months and weeks preceding the events. Any questions or concerns were addressed immediately, and we felt comfortable throughout the entire process. On the day of the wedding, Keith exhibited a level of preparation, professionalism and friendliness that was unparalleled. He made our families and bridal party feel comfortable. One of my favorite qualities about him was his ability to blend in. He managed to be almost invisible at times, capturing amazing candid moments yet was always there when we wanted something specific. He had a way of balancing this that made the process easy and fun. The photos are stunning. His framing, use of color and variety of lenses really captured how we perceived the entire day. I could not be happier with the pictures, and I would recommend Keith to anyone who wants stunning, unique photos.

Keith was referred to my husband and I through a co-worker and from the moment we spoke with him (my mother-in-law, my husband and I) we were charmed. We were completely settled that this was our man. After looking at our wedding photos we couldn’t be happier with our choice and would highly recommend him to anyone. Keith held to every appointment, returned phone call, price quote and everything that was promised to us when we first decided to hire him. Our digital negatives were given to us in a timely manner edited beautifully and artistically. Keith was amazing at being there without ‘being there’. He captured so many candid moments. My husband and I are particular about photos but Keith truly caught the magic of our wedding day. I would suggest Keith 110% to anyone for any occasion he’s willing to shoot.
