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.

Exceeded All Expectations!
Kenny was an absolute pleasure to work with! His ability to connect with his clients on a personal level really sets a positive tone from day one and his organizational skills helped put our mind at ease for such an important part of the wedding planning process.
Our bridal party was large (8 bridesmaids and 8 groomsmen) and we had a large extended family presence throughout the wedding weekend. Instead of focusing on just the key family members and bride/groom, he ensured that he learned the names of all the key family members and bridal party before the wedding, so he can organize photo groupings the day-of more efficiently and effectively. We had worried that the size of the bridal party and family would result in limited group photos and the exact opposite occurred thanks to Kenny.
His attention to detail and ability to capture beauty was also spectacular. From our engagement photoshoot to the beautiful album he put together of our wedding day, we're over the moon with how they all turned out. It is easy to get lost in the hectic nature of different photo angles, locations, and configurations, but when we look back on the photos we can tell how well Kenny was equipped to handle it with flying colors.
Overall, we feel so lucky and grateful for our experience of working with Kenny and for the friendship that has followed. We would recommend him to anyone seeking a wedding photographer that is proactive, organized, and artistically impressive.Sent on 06/29/2020

The ultimate professional, highly recommend!
The best decision we made for our wedding was hiring Kenny Kim. He was the absolute greatest, a true world-class professional. Kenny took the time to meet with us as a couple, get to know us and our families. He asked thoughtful questions and cared genuinely about our expectations and desires.
The result was a photographer who felt like he was actually a part of our wedding party! He knew our families names, he knew the names of our groomsmen and bridesmaids, he took the time to care & learn about the nuances of which family members might not want to be photographed together (you know, every family has "friction" here and there...), and he fit in so well that you would have thought he was just an old friend of the family who happened to have incredible photography skills & equipment.
Kenny cares. It shows. His work speaks for itself as we have even been featured in a magazine based on his photography! He was able to politely but professionally wrangle our group when we were disorganized or losing attention. The photos were breathtaking and turned around quickly.
DO YOURSELF A FAVOR - hire Kenny. You will not regret it. It will be the best decision you make for your wedding. It was the best decision we made for ours. We have memories for a lifetime thanks to Kenny.Sent on 07/21/2020

Highly recommend Kenny Kim!
Kenny Kim is amazing on all levels. Not only is he super talented, he's also incredibly easy to be around and very professional. He has a way of disappearing into the background and capturing the special candid moments that are what memories are made of. He can also easily corral a large family into a group photo and get everyone to laugh and smile in a natural way. The photos we received from our engagement session and from our wedding day far exceeded our expectations.Sent on 06/30/2020
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.
