Kenny Kim has always been fascinated by the visual arts - and especially the connection between art & photography. His passion first led to the study of graphic design at the University of Illinois, where he also became a skilled web designer and eventually opened up his own design studio in 2003. It was during this period, he began to realize that the greatest outlet for his artistic expression and technical skills would be through his passion for photography. Incorporating his own vision into the technical elements of photography, Kenny's goal with each photo he takes is to present each moment he captures with a subtle artistry that enhances the feel of the moment. With the launch of Kenny Kim Photography in 2005, Kenny's vision for a photographer's work instantly resonated with his audience and within a short period of time, Kenny Kim Photography has now grown into a nationally recognized studio. In just 3 short years, Kenny has been commissioned for over 100 weddings in locations throughout the United States and the Caribbean. He was also retained to shoot for the University of Illinois Men?s Basketball & Tennis teams along with various celebrity events featuring David Foster, Andrea Bocelli, John Legend, Three Doors Down, Chris Tomlin, Michael W. Smith, and many others. Kenny currently resides in Chicago, Illinois. He is thankful everyday for the privilege to call his passion in life, his profession as well.

Kenny and I met a few years back while I was working at a winery in Napa Valley. I have always admired his work and knew that, if I ever got married, that he would be my number one choice for photography. After booking our venue, Kenny was the first vendor that we reached out to and we were SO lucky to have been able to snag him for our wedding day!Sent on 04/10/2019
One look at any of his photos and you know that you are working with a world-class wedding photographer! His shots are beautifully concieved and stunning to look at, and you can tell that he has the ability to illicit and capture genuine emotion from the subjects. But with Kenny, you get much more than gorgeous photos. He genuinely cares to get to know you, your family, your friends and your story. Just as an example, he memorized our wedding party in advance of the event and was therefore able to direct people seamlessly on the day in order to get the right shots! To say that he takes his role seriously is an understatement.
Our families and friends were so impressed with Kenny. He and his second shooter, Ning, were in complete control of the day, were present for the right moments, and were endlessly patient with all of us. We will treasure every moment that Kenny has captured for us, from our engagement shoot last summer through our wedding day, Kenny has more than exceeded our expectations. I could go on and on. I won't. But I will say that a quality photographer is worth their weight in gold. You will be forever grateful to have him on your team on your wedding day. He is the best!

Kenny is absolutely incredible both at what he does and as a person. Kenny took the time to get to know my husband and I during our engagement process and went above and beyond to help us prepare for our wedding.Sent on 09/22/2018
During the weekend of our wedding, Kenny exceeded our expectations and then some. He learned all of our wedding party and extended family names and got to know them all on a personal level. This made group shots much easier for him to coordinate, and Kenny understood our friend/family dynamics and what we wanted to capture in our photos. He was also a ton of fun throughout the day. I think my friends and family loved having Kenny as part of our wedding day just as much as we did! Kenny also kept us on schedule throughout the day of the wedding and was such a positive energy.
I haven't even begun to mention Kenny's talent! He is without a doubt the best photographer I've seen and works tirelessly to capture the most personal and unique photos and get them finished in an extremely timely manner. We loved our engagement photos and wedding sneak peeks, and can't wait to see the rest of our wedding photos!
Kenny is top notch and we would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who wants an incredibly talented, personal, friendly, and hard-working photographer to capture some of the most important moments of their life.

Absolutely amazing professional photographer
Kenny is your perfect wedding photographer! He was super responsive as soon as I got in touch with him about a price quote. He was always thinking about what was in our best interest. He's super kind, thoughtful, professional and gave my husband and I (then fiance) complete ease throughout the whole hiring process into the engagement shoot and our wedding day. He took the time to get to know us and allowed us to be in our element throughout the whole process. He listened to our ideas and our vision, and he absolutely delivered.Sent on 11/30/2018
During our engagement shoot when it was 30 degrees out, he made use of the time we had to snap the most amazing photos. He continued to communicate often up until our wedding day. And on our wedding day, I felt SO comfortable and at ease that we had such a professional to help us navigate throughout the day. He picked the perfect spots and also has a knack to be spontaneous. His artistic eye captured every memorable and precious moment. There were so many people who came up to us on our wedding day and afterwards to comment on his personality, how professional he was and the incredible quality of our photos. He really created magic and we are so grateful for his work and his service.
We're still talking about our photos and showing them incessantly to our friends and family. You will not regret going with Kenny. We absolutely recommend him.
Kenny is one of the most talented photographers I know. His resume speaks for itself. He has an easy going demeanor and is such a cool guy to work with. I highly recommend his services! make sure you book years in advance!!
Kenny is one of the best photographers I know -- very talented and professional. Coming from a design background, he knows how to capture the best photos filled with great color, composition, and especially the emotion of the moment. He's also a very fun person to work with, which will make your photoshoot/wedding day all the more enjoyable.
