About Kenny Kim Photography

Chicago based destination wedding & event photographer

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.

We were so lucky to have been referred to Kenny Kim by three close friends that each had him capture their weddings and had loved his work. That said, the bar was set high! Kenny photographed our wedding just a few weeks ago and he honestly surpassed the glowing reviews they set for him.

From a bride's perspective you don't realize how much time you spend with your photographer on your wedding day. Kenny's presence is so welcoming, warm and bright and his reassuring nature puts you at total ease. You also don't realize how much the photographer keeps the schedule logistics going that day. Kenny did this with total grace. He is a true expert in all things wedding - knows what needs to be accomplished when, moves along bridal parties, makes sure all the different family members are captured, and more. I had total peace of mind knowing he was helping to make sure everything ran smoothly.

Kenny truly goes above and beyond - he really put in the time to get to know us, our story, the bridal party and our families before the wedding day. He generously spent time with us at our engagement shoot, my final dress fitting, the venue walkthrough and even our rehearsal (lucky us that his schedule allowed). By the wedding day he knew every single one of our bridal party and parent's names. That was nearly 20 people and counting.

But the most important part... THE PHOTOS! Kenny has a true gift when it comes to photography. The photos captured our feelings in very emotional moments and the tone and beauty of all the different places we visited that day - from a sleek hotel, to our shabby chic garden ceremony, to our rockabilly band vibe reception, and our light up balloon finale. He listened to artistic visions we discussed beforehand and executed them brilliantly. Our friends and family can't stop talking about the photos and we are still dying over how much we love them.

We really can't say enough good things about the Kenny Kim experience.

Kenny Kim was absolutely amazing and exceeded expectations on every criteria that there could possibly be. We hired him to shoot our wedding and from beginning to end, he was the easiest vendor with which we worked and by far the best spent money.

From when we first reached out to him, Kenny made it a priority to get to know us and find out what would be the best pictures to capture our personalities and relationship. From planning, to engagement photos, to the day of, Kenny was the best. He got to know the entire bridal party, calling everyone by name and made sure we had the best pictures that included everyone. The day of the ceremony, he got pictures of both of us getting ready and then had the most scenic pictures taken around the city in addition to the ceremony itself.

He put everyone at ease which made capturing everyone's personalities so much easier. The final product shows his amazing eye for detail and his ability to capture every moment. Everybody who looked at the pictures and who took part in the wedding commented that they had never seen a more professional or skilled photographer. While the couple getting married are supposed to get gifts, our true gift was finding a photographer and a person as amazing as Kenny Kim.

We thank you and will be forever grateful of the moments you captured for us!

Kenny Kim took the most beautiful photos for our engagement session and our wedding at The Drake Hotel, Chicago. We had our engagement session with Kenny the day before our wedding. We enjoyed taking our photos with Kenny because he gave clear direction and nailed each shot. We loved that he sent us our photos the very next day after our engagement session as he knew that we were anxious to see how we photographed prior to our wedding day (he also sent us highlights the day after our wedding). We are still marvelling over how stunning the shots are that Kenny took for our engagement session and wedding. We aren't the only ones marvelling... our friends and family have been commenting on the beautiful images captured by Kenny. Our wedding photos are absolutely amazing. We are so happy we went with Kenny. We highly recommend Kenny Kim Photography because not only is Kenny at the top of his game, he is genuinely interested in people; he's a people person and this fact combined with his amazing technical skill and creativity means that he is able to capture raw human emotion in the most intimate of moments. Kenny is focused, hard- working, responsive and communicative and an absolute delight to spend time with as he puts you at ease with his great personality. He's a lovely person. Kenny went above and beyond what he needed to do. In our opinion, Kenny Kim is one of the leading destination photographers in his industry. We spent a significant amount of time researching photographers and Kenny came out on top for us. Kenny Kim Photography is photography at its best. We probably didn't need to go into such detail with our review because Kenny's work speaks volumes as to his talent and skill. Our social media pages are still buzzing with complimentary comments about the images captured by Kenny on our wedding day. We highly recommend Kenny Kim Photography.
