About KyleMy StartMy inspiration came at a young age when I discovered a love for photographing people. I used to annoy my friends by taking a million pictures of them. I was amazed by the rare can-did photos that truly captured the beauty and essence of a person and became obsessed with creating more images like those. When I decided to turn my passion into a profession, I began a year long internship with a professional photographer and learned photo retouching, large format printing, and was given the opportunity to hone my photography skills at weddings and other photo sessions. The next year I became a full-time professional photographer and have not looked back since.
My StyleMy creativity is always inspired by the amazing couples I am able to work with. Every cou-ple and venue is unique so that each wedding has its own distinct look. The consistent style that I have become known for is the strong use of color in my images. I tend toward using vivid colors while making sure they look as bright and bold in my photographs as they do in real life. One element that sets me apart is using studio lighting outdoors. By controlling the light, I am free to be creative in my choice of backgrounds instead of being limited to using locations that naturally have ideal lighting. I tend to use simple yet elegant posing so that my clients look natural, keeping the focus on their connection and emotion. By keeping my photo sessions fun and relaxed, I am able to create an environment where couples can be them-selves and allow real moments to happen.
My StoryI married my beautiful bride, Katie, 5 years ago; she works full-time helping manage the business side of Kyle Bultman Photography. We have two adorable rescued dogs, Pixel and Widget, and enjoy taking them hiking, mountain biking, and on rock climbing trips. I also enjoy writing, philosophy, video produc-tion, drumming and anything to do with aviation.
Engagement PhotographyEngagement photo sessions are such a great opportunity to get to know my clients that one is included in every wedding photography package. I have had the privilege of working with so many incredible couples that I really value the engagement photo sessions as a chance to spend more time with each couple. The passion couples have for each other during their en-gagement makes it a real joy to work with them and it is so much fun capturing that stage of their lives. Showcasing that special connection makes engagement and wedding photography more interesting and meaningful to me than any of my other work.
Engagement photo sessions are 2-3 hours to allow time to capture a wide variety of pictures, locations and multiple outfits. After the session, the best 100 photos are selected and then individually edited to ensure that each photo has the best color. This level of quality does take time, but within 3-4 weeks you will be sent a flash drive with 100+ full resolution digital photos along with a copyright agreement that allows you to print the photos wherever you wish.
With any package offered by Kyle Bult-man Photography, you receive full cover-age of your wedding day by Kyle Bult-man and a second photographer. The photographers arrive before the bride puts on her dress and stay well into open danc-ing at the reception. Our team at Kyle Bultman Photography works alongside you to create a wedding day schedule that ensures enough time is dedicated to cap-turing all the photos that are important to you, while still allowing you time to en-joy the day with your friends and family. Our photography goes beyond covering just the events and formals, by giving attention to all the elements that com-prise your wedding day and telling the full story. We take the artistic, creative shots that will look amazing as a full page spread in your wedding album and also take the classic shots that will look great hanging on your parents wall. Throughout the day, we not only cover what is happening, but also photograph the guests and their reactions so that you can experience the day from their point of view as well. In the planning process, we make it a pri-ority to be available to you as a resource and put our seven years of experience to work for you. We work with you to find the perfect locations for your pictures that show your unique style, go over all the details in advance so that on the big day we are able to keep everyone on time, and assist in making your day run smoothly.

The ExperienceI cannot even begin to describe how happy we are with our decision to use Kyle Bultman Photography. I fell in love with their work at a bridal show .... the colors were so vibrant and the photos were over all simply stunning! The service we received from Kyle and Katie matched the excellence of their actual photographs. They were timely in responding to emails and incredibly timely at getting us our photos (they had a sneak peek up for us within two days and the rest of our photos to us within a couple of weeks!) without compromising the quality. Their suggestions and
help with creating a wedding day timeline were invaluable in assuring that we got all the pictures we wanted without missing out on too much of our party and more importantly to us, without having to see each other before the ceremony. They were accommodating to special requests and overall a ton of fun to work with. Weve received too many compliments to keep track of on both our engage-ment and wedding photos. This was quite possibly the best investment we made in the entire wed-ding planning process! Love them! ~ Doug & Amy
I wish we could write 100 reviews on how AMAZING Kyle and Katie were to us for our July 4th wedding and engage-ment shoot in Chicago!! We absolutely feel that they were our best investment for our big day! Our engagement photos were absolutely gorgeous! So much so the hotel we took them in, in Chicago, asked to use them as promotional materials! What a compliment!! When we discussed our out of the box desires for our wedding photos, they were energetic and enthusiastic to try some new things! This really appealed to us. They were professional, timely, and flexible (even when it rained on our engagement shoot). We cannot say enough about how much we loved Kyle and Katie Bultman as our wedding photog-raphers. We would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone and will continue to do so here and every-where when people ask! We have received rave reviews and compliments galore from our guests. Pick them, you wont be disappointed!! ~ Brandon & Ranelle
Choosing Kyle Bultman Photography to be a part of our wedding day was one of the greatest decisions we made while making our wedding plans. Not only is the team at Kyle Bultman Photography amazing photographers, it is also evident that they love what they do and bring that excitement with them to each wedding. In every aspect of our planning with Kyle and Katie, they were punctual and professional, yet carried excitement and energy for our wed-ding day. We wouldnt have chosen anyone else to capture our wedding day and we are so glad to have had Kyle and Katie as a part of our amazing day. ~ Steven & Kara
