Brady and Ken were everything we could have hoped for in wedding photographers! On our wedding day, we were able to structure a full day with them that let us get some great shots all over Yosemite. Brady and Ken were also a pleasure to spend our special day with. They were easy to get along with, easy to talk to and willing to give and take suggestions. They really took the time to put help put together a personal and absolutely stunning set of photographs from our wedding. Finally, they even suggested a guide for us in Costa Rica, who helped make our honeymoon great. We couldn't recommend Brady and Ken more highly!! - Jay & Sara Sayles – Sacramento, CA.


We hired Ken and Brady of Duende Photo to shoot our wedding this summer and I simply cannot say enough about them. Not only are they incredibly professional, but also highly skilled in their craft. They put 110% into all of their work and are very detail oriented. They scouted out our locations ahead of time so that once we arrived on the day of our wedding, they knew exactly where the best shots could be taken. Most of the time I didn't even notice that they were there! They were also incredibly patient (which says a lot, because my family can be a bit much sometimes=). They returned all of our proofs on time and we were very satisfied with the images. You can tell they spent a lot of time carefully and meticulously editing each image to ensure they were exactly right. As an aside, I work in the industry as an event planner, so I come across many photographers on a regular basis. That said, few can match the quality that Ken and Brady bring to all of their work. I am quite selective with who I work with, and I regularly recommend them to my clients, family members and friends. I can assure you that they will capture your day perfectly and leave you with lasting memories for a life time. - Erica Becks (Event and Wedding Planner) – Emeryville, CA


Ken & Brady~ You make an amazing wedding photoraphy team! I never felt so comfortable with any of my wedding vendors like I did with both of you!! You are very gifted, down to earth, honest, and ever so patient. I went to 3 bridal shows met many photographers, but once I laid eyes on your work, I was convinced I wanted you to photographer my wedding! Now looking at all of our beautiful photographs I can not pick just one favorite! I love how you captured the natural light! All of the ceremony pictures are beautiful. You truly captured the moments in the candid yet composed style I was looking for! The kids shots are adorable, my 4 yr old niece had a blast being photographed by you! Our couple pictures are absolutely beautiful! I love so many of them! Thank you, Thank you!!! I am absolutely happy with our photographs and can't wait to show them off! The group shots were fun & creative- not the typical group shots one is use to seeing. Again after attending 3 bridal shows your work is truly unique! Our large wedding party with all the little kids was not the most flexible and the heat did not help but thank you for working around it and making it fun for everyone! Most importantly, I appreciate how you captured all of our special moments yet really blended in and let those moments happen naturally with no interruptions from you. Thank you Ken & Brady! -Luz & Alberto Avila – Napa, CA


My husband and I wanted to make sure that we found the right photographer to capture the moments in one of the most important days in our lives, our wedding. Initially this seemed like a very difficult thing to do. After meeting Brady and Ken my husband and I felt confident that they would capture our special moments. After seeing the wedding shots the expectations I had were far exceeded. Ken and Brady were able to tell the story of the greatest day of my life through their photographs. After working with Brady on the design of our album she was able to organize our photographs into the most stunning wedding album. With the combination of artistic design and quality of photographs the album turned out better than I could have ever imagined. The album is absolutely perfect. I have received numerous compliments on the look of our wedding album. Ken and Brady's photographs and album have forever captured the look and feel of our very special day. I cannot thank them enough! - Kim & Travis McDonald – Livermore, CA

You have such a passion for what you do and a personal interest in making our special day perfect. We weren't just another couple getting married and more money in the bank. You are also truely romantic and it shows through in your photos. We appreciate your professionalism and genuine kindness. Thank you so much! -Frank & Kristin Sandobal – Modesto, CA


Ken and Brady were wonderful from the beginning. They make you feel so comfortable and at ease, and really take an interest in what you as a couple are looking for in your wedding photos. With every appointment, they were very punctual, professional, and easy to work with. During the day of the wedding, they calmed us down through the stressful parts, and took as many opportunities as possible to make sure they captured beautiful shots. We love all the photos they have taken! Thank you. -Lindsay & Eric Sacco – Mount Vernon, CT
