About Ken

About Ken

My name is Ken Mendoza and I am a photographer based in San Francisco, California and the founder of San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photographers and Cofounder of Duendephoto (San Francisco Bay Area & Destination Weddings).

As long as I can remember, I've been inspired to create. Ever since I discovered my passion for photography it's been my obsession. As a client, you will feel the love for what I do and the enthusiasm for making each image perfect.

Photography is my lifestyle and my channel through which I capture and appreciate the beauty that surrounds me every day. The beauty in People. The Beauty of the Bay Area. And yes, the beauty of light.


My goal is always to provide clients dramatic timeless images from an unforgettable shoot. You will laugh and maybe even cry! But you will leave with a glow from the peak experience of our time together. From the India to the top of Yosemite's Half Dome,  and yes, to San Francisco City Hall , I aim to always provide something new and fresh to every single client.

Yes,  I'll go anywhere in the world to capture that special moment.
