Alex & Dahae wedding Alex & Dahae were great to work with. Straight from the groom himself, Alex (via Yelp):My fiance and I had an engagement/pre-wedding photo shoot and took Mr. Kim on to photograph us for 4 hours. He had us set the venue, and went to the LA Arboretum in Arcadia for 3 hours, and then to the Pasadena City hall for an hour. Mr. Kim had never been to the Arboretum but he made it work. We had only been there a few times ourselves, and didn't know where exactly we would like our photos taken, and Mr. Kim had the eye to point out several spots where we could be photographed. In short, even though he didn't know the venue at all, he photographed us and the results were incredible. After 3 hours at the Arboretum, Mr. Kim was more than agreeable to move to a second venue. While at the City hall, Mr. Kim made sure that we got artistic/amazing photographs from many different angles, and he would even lay down on the ground in order to get better angles of us and the architecture of the venue in the shot. Because of the time it took us to move venues, I was a bit worried that we wouldn't have much time at the second venue, but Mr. Kim had no issues going over-time from our previous agreement. We even had a special request for him to allow for us to be photographed with our dog and while he had never done that before, he was fine with it and made it all work. My fiance and I are very happy with the results of the shoot, and would definitely work with Mr. Kim again. He creates a very positive mood/atmosphere throughout the photo shoot, and helps to put the subjects of the photography at ease even when it feels somewhat awkward.
Dahae& Alex wedding Dahae& Alex were great to work with. Straight from the groom herself, Dahae (via Yelp):Last week my fiancé and I had our first couple photo shoot. We chose a big park and it was about 90 degrees so we scheduled to have a guide to drive us around in a golf cart. Unfortunately the guide was late without notice and while trying to figure out if something had gone wrong with our reservation, Richard was understanding and waited patiently. At the end of the day he even worked over the 4 hour window which made up for our lost time!Throughout the shoot he knew exactly which spots and positions would provide the best results. He was always communicating with us and was very encouraging so we felt comfortable and had a good time. We were hoping for more natural photos so I loved that he had his assistants take candid shots from different perspectives as well. We're very happy with the choice we made as Richard proved to be experienced, efficient and diligent, and you can tell that he enjoys his work! We already got a peek at some of the finished photos and they look great. We're excited to see the rest, and to work with him again at our wedding!
