In our efforts to find the ideal wedding photographer we discovered Joey Ikemoto and Team.  It started with a face-to-face consultation with Joey and his operations manager.  They provided a detailed pricing package suitable for our needs, and a detailed and disciplined timeline to capture our wedding day and special moments.  Ikemoto Studio is a highly experienced and proven team that knew the ins and outs of our wedding and reception venues, which was key to optimize photographs that captured the best angles, sunlight, sunset, and special moments.  Bottom line - our photographs were spectacular and well choreographed.  Joey Ikemoto and Team are truly professional and deliver quality.

I honestly can't express just how wonderful our experience was with Joey Ikemoto Photography. Our staff needed headshots for our website, so Joey came over to our office for the shoot. Here are a few highlights: TIMELINESS: From getting the initial quote to every inquiry afterward, the photography staff was incredibly prompt with their responses and communication was never an issue. ACCOMMODATING: I can truly say that Joey and his staff went above and beyond when it came to special requests. In particular, if we needed a photo edited a certain way, we simply let staff know ahead of time and they were sure to deliver. INTERACTIONS: We discovered that an overlooked--but important--part of choosing a photographer is finding one that works well with his/her subject. Some of our staff members were apprehensive about getting their headshots done, but Joey was so great about getting everyone comfortable and laughing. This team was such a joy to work with and I found that every single person on that staff carried the same, positive energy. We will definitely continue to use their services! More...

Joey was amazing! The day of our wedding, he was so organized and able to direct everyone efficiently. The images came out incredible and it was more than we could have ever asked for. His entire staff is a pleasure and easy to work with and made the entire process stress-free! Will definitely use Joey and staff again for any professional photo needs. More...

Wedding planning is stressful and confusing at times but after my husband and I met with Joey and his team I instantly felt relief! We knew we were in the best hands, he made us feel comfortable and we knew if nothing else went right that day that at least we would have beautiful photos! We were married at Wayfarer's Chapel and we wanted a photographer who knew how to capture the beauty and the light there. Our planning session before the wedding completely put our minds at ease. Our photographer was Sam and he and Joey went through every minute of our ceremony with us, not a detail was left out. On our wedding day Sam and his assistants were beyond professional, so nice and complimentary and very fun and easygoing, we loved working with them. We adore our photos and I cannot imagine having better photographers. Save yourself the stress and just let Joey and his team photograph your wedding, they will make it perfect!

The team at Joey Ikemoto is extremely professional and friendly. Sam was a pleasure to have as a photographer, and many guests complimented on his cheerful attitude and efficient behavior. With his knowledge and experience at Wayfarer Chapel, poses, and lightening, I'm confident that the pictures will be something we will enjoy for our lifetime together. We highly recommend Sam, and Joey's full team, and their expertise for your special day to remind you of your forever love. More...

Joey came highly recommended. Joey did our engagement pictures and wedding pictures. Between the 2 sessions he took over 2,000 pictures.  He is super fun and was always making us laugh to get a genuine smile. HE DID AN AMAZING JOB. He makes it difficult to decide which pictures to purchase because they are ALL really good. I would definitely recommend using Joey. More...

Joey and his team have been in this business a very long time and their long line of experience really shows through in their work. We had extremely thorough coverage throughout our ceremony and reception. Sam was our photographer and had a fantastic positive and patient attitude and vibed extremely well with our guests and our bridal party. He and his second photographer did an excellent job covering all of the usual traditional wedding shots as well as the special shots and details we requested too. Extremely professional and very responsive via email if you ever have questions or concerns. More...

Choosing Joey as our Photographer was one of the best decisions we could have made. Not only did he capture all the candid shots I wanted, he also encouraged me to create and share a Pinterest board of moments I wanted to capture with him before the big day ( i. e. The first time my husband saw me walking down the aisle, ) so that it was clear what shots were important to us.
The day was planned in 15 minute increments by Joey ahead of time which made it easy for me to share “the schedule” with the rest of my vendors. While I thought this was excessive (even with my “type A” personality) this was the BEST thing that we could have done because I did not have to worry about people not knowing what to do / where to be and could truly be in the moment .
Joey knows exactly when to step in and give good advice to get the photos you want while still somehow fading into the background, which made me forget sometimes that he was even there! He also worked VERY well with our videographers and they were able to coordinate some one-on-one time and not get in the way of each other.
Joey is BEYOND talented and worth every penny. Very Professional – great personality to be around on one of the happiest days of your life – and captures exceptional photos so you can relive the day over and over forever.

Joey Ikemoto Photography captured moments throughout our wedding that we will be able to cherish for years to come. His creative and fun nature allowed for unique one of a kind photos. My husband and I knew we were in good hands after our first meeting with him and his staff. They walked us through their different packages and were very responsive to emails. Joey also provided us with a "wedding day" timeline which was extremely helpful and greatly appreciated. We are so glad we chose Joey Ikemoto Photography and hope to work with him again in the future. More...

Joey is an established name (probably THE established name) for wedding photos in Southern California. We picked him after having friends use him in the past at their weddings. On the day, Sam was our photographer and he was fantastic - very attentive and him and his assistant Jeremy were great about making sure all groups were organized for photos.Before the wedding, we had an engagement shoot with Joey, where he helped lay out the schedule for the day. It's hard to balance the desire to get more photos with the desire to not feel rushed during the day, and we ended up cutting an extra photo location in the schedule. Tracy and the rest of the office staff were always very responsive to our questions and messages. Prices are what you might expect, which is to say, very high. I wish engagement photos were included, not just the session. Overall, happy with how the day went and how attentive Sam and Jeremy were. More...

My wife and I used Joey Ikemoto Photography for our wedding at the Point Vicente Interpretive Center in Palos Verdes on April 6, 2019. Some of our friends used Joey as their photographer a few years earlier and the photos were great so we felt good about moving forward without shopping around. We met with Joey one month before the wedding and he helped establish a timeline for our wedding day. The meeting was very fun and Joey is great to work with. He helped to suggest a location for our "first look" shots as well as an area to get beach background shots. Sam was our photographer for the wedding. We started out at a nearby hotel and then did some lovely beach shots before heading over to the venue. Sam was very friendly and professional. I personally am not one for taking a lot of photos and Sam was always good about making sure things ran efficiently and kept things moving in a positive way. He helped select my tie color that would work best for the photos and was always willing to step in and help any way he could. Thank you to Jeremy as well who assisted Sam and delivered the same friendly and professional services. We got really lucky with the weather during our event and Sam made sure to capitalize on the ocean views and sunset. Sam was able to get several candid shots in addition the traditional more posed photos. He captured several great shots of us, our friends and family, and the venue. It was a beautiful day and a fun event, we're so happy Sam was there to document the day. The photos have turned out wonderful and we are very happy with Joey Ikemoto Photography. We would highly recommend their services. More...

Joey was amazing! His pictures are truly art! He was professional and a huge joy on our special day! We ended up getting amazing sunset pictures too! His staff members, Tracy helped a lot with helping us choose some amazing pictures. We ended up with over 1,000 pictures to choose from, and I have to say most of the 1,000 were incredible! We would highly recommend him and his staff!
Thank you Joey and Tracy for being part of our wedding celebration!

Joey and his team were INCREDIBLE. They captured such incredible moments in both the ceremony and reception that would've otherwise been lost in the chaos. He made sure everyone was comfortable, no stuffy poses. The session afterwards was fun- and the finished products were absolutely gorgeous. Highly, highly recommend. More...

Joey photographed one of my best friend's wedding this past Friday. I was already impressed by the engagement photos he did and sent an inquiry to get my daughter's portraits done with his company. We haven't done the portraits yet. This review is strictly based on my observations and interactions with him as a guest while he was photographing my friend's wedding and my daughter, who was her flower girl. Joey and his assistant were working hard the whole time. Super nice guys and very personable. My 3.5 year old is very shy/weary around men, and the first time he met her to get a shot with her and my friend, he knew exactly what to do to break the ice (ie bubbles!) and gain her trust. She took to him right away  and even held his hand! This isn't his first rodeo and it shows! He was able to get great shots with her smiling "normal" (she usually likes making funny faces) and cheesing it up for the camera. Because of that, I have great confidence in his ability to capture those magical children's portraits (let's be honest - not everyone can work well with kids)He was funny, very pleasant and ninja like as he moved throughout the ceremony and reception. The advice is true- if you're gonna spend money on your wedding, spend it on the photographer. Joey and his team are well worth it. More...

A wonderful experience from start to finish! Joey Ikemoto and his team absolutely know what they're doing and how best to do it. The whole day ran like clockwork. I didn't have to think at all...the photographers just told me what to do and when to do it. After the wedding, our photos came out just gorgeous, and we had so many options for albums, prints, etc. Overall an excellent experience! More...

I am so so happy I chose to go with this company. The whole experience was amazing. From setting up appointments, engagement photos, to the day of wedding I am pleased with all of it. They really help take off some of the stress of planning a wedding, especially a destination wedding. Joey took our engagement photos and made my husband who was grumpy laugh the whole time. Tracy set up all my appointment , went through the planning with me and made great suggestions of where to get the best shots, all which turned out amazing despite powerful wind. Henry was awesome! On the day of her was punctual, kind and calming presence. His eye is great and the shots came out amazing. They are so good I cried when I went through them. He got great shots despite fighting the wind. I can't say enough good things, they know what they are doing and are worth every penny. More...

How do I give Joey more than 5 stars? It's hard to express in words how amazing Joey is -- as a person & as a photographer. My husband, family, and friends loved him and how passionate he is about his work. He is absolutely hands-down the best photographer I have ever dealt with! He works so well with people and was especially kind with my husband and I. He knows just the right angles and just the right positioning in his photography as well as perfect timing of the right light needed in photos. It was nothing but a positive experience with Joey and I highly recommend you to use him for your photos as well! He put all of our needs first before his own and it was overall an outstanding experience. More...

Our wedding was on October 20, 2018 and Henry was our photographer for the big day. We sat with Joey (who also took care of our engagement photo shoot)a few weeks before our wedding and he was very understanding of the type of photos and locations we wanted our photos to take place. Let me tell you, once the gallery was complete the quality of the photos were amazing. My wife and I  LOVED the photos and for me to love a picture says a lot. We had a minor issue when the photo album was completed and they fixed it without hesitation (thank you Tracy). Our family and friends also loved the photos and have told them about Joey. Henry and his assistant were there on time the day of wedding, kept us organized, helpful, and they were patient with us the entire time. If you're looking for a photographer for any type of event, look no further. Joey and his team are the best!!!! More...

I was thrilled with Joey Ikemoto photography. From our first meeting through receiving the preview of our photos. Sam was AMAZING! He has a great eye for photography. His personality really got everyone laughing and made it so that the photos seemed natural and less posed, which I love! He got some beautiful candid shots that transported me back to that day and stirred all of the emotions I felt. I highly recommend using them! They exceeded my expectations! More...

My wife and I had a great experience with Joey and his team. Joey took our engagement photos and consulted with us to get a plan for the wedding photos. Sam and Nate photographed our wedding at Wayfarer’s chapel and reception at Catalina Kitchen at Terranea. All our photographers were very familiar with our venues and helped us to navigate the strict time limitations and photography rules that those venues imposed. In addition to being knowledgeable, organized, and professional, the photographers were all very personable and coaxed great photos out of me despite the jitters. Tracy was very helpful and communicative with the administrative side of things. Highly recommended! More...

16 February 2019

If my words can influence a decision about choosing a photographer at all, please know that it's likely impossible to choose anyone more professional, courteous, inspirational and artistic than Joey.

He used his wacky humor, endless charm and boundless love for his life's calling to invite my now wife and me into the greatest pictures we've ever taken.

We were naturally intrigued by the photos of his works available to be viewed, but upon meeting him, we felt instantly at peace. There's zero reason to even do any comparison.

He made my wife feel more beautiful than she ever has in our wedding day photos, allowing her to feel deeply at ease with what could sometimes be a stressful day. I've never felt more confident in a photograph looking as good as it possibly could.

Throughout our wedding planning, we were told multiple times by different people involved in the process that when they heard we chose Joey, they said they had done the same and it was perfect for them.

Joey had our day measured down to 15-minute increments, squeezing every photographable (it's my word, dammit) moment into his camera. Even his assistants marveled at some of the compositions he selected.

We could not have wanted better photographs, and the greatest day of our lives will forever live on because Joey Ikemoto existed. If you've ever found yourself to put even a modicum of trust in a stranger on the internet, take this advice and hire Joey. The word "regret" will no longer be in your lexicon.

What can I say about Joey Ikemoto Photography other than they delivered everything we wanted, made my wife extremely happy and helped make the most of our special day! First and foremost, my wife was sold once she saw a number of images off the Joey Ikemoto site so we made an appointment to meet with them and weren't disappointed! The solid and reassuring sense of a professional studio (they are!), the helpful tips and thoughtfulness to help us get the most out of them AND our 'day', and the openness of being available to work with us and address all our concerns sealed the deal.With all the anxieties that go along with the months of planning a wedding, Joey Ikemoto Photography made us feel secure with our choice and grateful for offering info on so many things we wouldn't have otherwise considered.Finally, when the day came and all the plans came to be, things started just as we had hoped. We were so happy to work directly with Joey for our wedding, and when he showed up he did nothing but satisfy! He was punctual and brought a reassuring sense along with him.We had met with him before, but there is something about his studio that is personal, playful, and fun - he really calmed a lot of tension with his personality and joking, and could really draw out the best of his subjects in his photos. He made it feel easy, but still important at the same time.He kept the day moving, commanding everything we were hoping for, making sure it all "got done", and got done perfectly!Without gushing on I can only say that I could not recommend Joey Ikemoto Photography any more, you will love working with his studio, you will love working with Tracy, you will love his ability to help guide you through your day, and you will LOVE your photos!!

WOW! Joey Ikemoto captured the most incredible sunset pictures at our beach wedding, combined with a broad range of photos throughout the day – from smiling to dramatic to candid and fun! Joey Ikemoto offers a rare mix of technical ability and outstanding people skills. He worked with the family to bring out the best in them (and us) like a true professional. A few weeks after the wedding, we were provided with a selection of some of the best shots that were colour corrected to really make them pop – along with the full catalogue of over 1,300 shots – the majority of which were excellent with a few being truly outstanding! Thanks Joey Ikemoto and the team for giving us memories that we can look back on and cherish for years to come. More...

We were married in September and was lucky enough to have Nate photograph our wedding. It was a long 12hr + day all over LA. And by all over, I mean from Torrance to LA to PV to San Gabriel Valley. At one point, I was worried he was tired and told him to sit down, but ever dedicated to his craft, he refused and kept shooting pictures. He was very professional and kept making sure things were moving. He was also a fun guy to talk to. His Cantonese skills and child behavioral skills were especially useful in herding my family members into position. When considering the extremely long day and remarkable quality of pictures/services, the price was very reasonable. More...

Going up to the wedding date, I was finishing up school and frantically planning the wedding with my husband and family. I was in a whirlwind of worry about how the wedding was going to go. On the day of the wedding, Joey was one of the first vendors to arrive (plenty early before the wedding), and his humor and presence calmed my worry dramatically. Joey was super calm, collected and respectful to all of the guests (even the difficult ones). To all prospective clients, I highly recommend the group photos following the ceremony, as they were a huge hit with the guests and friends. I have no regrets with going with Joey and his team as they were one of the most professional vendors I have had! More...

My wife and I found Joey Ikemoto Photography on Yelp after failing to be impressed by the preferred vendor list from our venue. We checked Joey's website and were impressed by the photos so we decided to book an appointment for consultation. Their studio\gallery is impressive and it was very pleasant speaking with Joey who explained their process from start to finish. His planning of the photo shoots for the big day was perfect. Hiring them was an easy decision. Sam was booked as the main photographer for our wedding and we were not disappointed. Sam showed up with Jason and both were very friendly and professional from the start. They guided us and
our families expertly for the photo shoots and captured a lot of precious moments. It was a really great experience. The photos came out beautifully as promised. We can not recommend them enough.

Joey and his team were very professional, arrived early, and were extremely kind to the wedding guests. Some of the family are a bit difficult to handle, but Joey was calm, collected, and treated them with respect throughout the day. In the sessions meeting up to the wedding day, I felt more and more confident that Joey was the right guy for the wedding photos. On the wedding day, he arrived early, made sure to greet and get to know who's who of the wedding party and family (face-to-face), and took awesome photos that I will forever cherish. In regards to specific photos, definitely ask for the group wedding photos, as those were a hit with my family and friends. Overall, Joey and his team were kind, supportive, experienced, and I'm glad I went with them for my husband and my wedding! I have no regrets! More...

We were married in September and was lucky enough to have Nate photograph our wedding.  It was a long 12hr + day all over LA.  And by all over, I mean from Torrance to LA to PV to San Gabriel Valley.  At one point, I was worried he was tired and told him to sit down, but ever dedicated to his craft, he refused and kept shooting pictures.  He was very professional and kept making sure things were moving.  He was also a fun guy to talk to.  His Cantonese skills and child behavioral skills were especially useful in herding my family members into position.  When considering the extremely long day and remarkable quality of pictures/services, the price was very reasonable.

Joey recently photographed our wedding at Wayfarers. We selected him because they had recommended him. That was a fantastic decision. He know the grounds and all the best angles. He was able to get a huge number of different photos in the 2 hours that we were there. He was especially good at getting the attention of the children. He planned the whole time out in 15 minute increments, which really made everything go very smoothly. I would absolutely recommend Joey. More...

Joey and his assistant were amazing for our wedding day! They were recommended to us by our venue (Los Verdes Golf Course) and we could not have been happier. Joey made everyone feel comfortable while taking photos and would joke with us to get true smiles and reactions - he is hilarious! Due to my make-up and hair teams running late, our schedule had to change a little and Joey was very accommodating and still got the main photos that we wanted. I would absolutely recommend him and his studio, and would definitely hire them again. More...

The photos speak for themselves! Not only are they extremely talented photographers, but Joey and his team are extremely professional, have the best equipment, and have so much experience in the industry. This became very obvious when we sat down with Joey and he went through our entire wedding day plan minute by minute to make sure our photographers (Sam & Jason) knew exactly what was going on and who needed to be in which shots and when. Sam was so good at picking cool angles and coaching us on how to pose and even brought his own props to make the shots of the accessories look extra special. I haven't received all the photos yet (it's only been 2 weeks), but our photos that made it on the blog are AMAZING! They can make anyone look good! Joey has the best range of package prices to work with anyone's budget. I cannot recommend them enough. More...

Joey and his team are absolutely amazing and went above and beyond for our wedding! My reception venue cancelled at the last minute and Joey called me with a list of other venues to try to save our day. I did not expect that at all and it was so kind of him to show that much concern! Our photographers on our wedding had great personalities and knew exactly how to interact with everyone to get the perfect shots. Their service and attention to detail had many of my guests wanting to know the name of our photographer before the event was over and they hadn’t even seen any of the photos yet! The images they captured are absolutely stunning and I cannot wait to have them take photos for our family in the future. If Joey Ikemoto is not your photographer yet, book him now! You will not regret it! More...

When planning our wedding, the one thing that was so often said was: don't skimp on the photographer. Well, of course we knew we wanted to get the best that we could afford, and in looking at The Knot and after a recommendation from Wayfarer's Chapel (our venue), we decided to look at Joey's site; we were blown away And decided on Joey Ikemoto.What a terrific choice! Our photographer Sam was so sweet and patient and worked with our schedule and was so clever in how and where to take pictures of our special day. Now that our pics are ready, our family and friends can not stop saying how beautiful the shots are. I'm so so glad we chose to go with Joey. More...

First, you find your Prince Charming to marry. Then, if you're smart, you hire Joey Ikemoto Photography and pick Sam, the Prince Charming of Wedding Photographers. This was one of the first wedding decisions I made and to say my hubby and I are ecstatic with the results is an understatement. Everyone at the studio is great to work with: responsive, easy going, professional, informative, an all-around nice bunch. Now, let's talk about my photographer Sam. What an absolute dream to work with. Not only was he totally charming, patient and funny as he was snapping away - this guy is incredibly talented. I was blown away by the pictures. So beautiful. He's an artist. Not only is he gifted at capturing all your special moments, he's a joy to work with: super professional and super nice. Ladies, he got on the floor to help bustle the train of my dress! At the end of the evening, I was so sad to say goodbye to him. Absolutely loved working with Joey Ikemoto Photography and couldn't recommend them more. Book them now (ask for Sam!) and you'll be left with stunning memories you will treasure your entire married life. Thank you guys - my Happily Ever After was just how I pictured it ;-).

Growing up in the South Bay, I used to see Joey Ikemoto's photos all the time. So when it was time to plan our wedding, Joey came up as a preferred photographer for our venue (South Coast Botanic Garden) and I knew that we had to check him out. I love the location of his studio and that all of his staff are super friendly. Our wedding package came with an engagement photo session, which I'm glad we took advantage of because it was good practice for the big day. Joey and Ethan were our photographers the day of, and they were so fun to work with. They were able to wrangle all of our 150 guests together to get an awesome group picture and even managed to get some sweet pictures of my dog. :) I've already received some blog preview photos and am in LOVE. I can't wait to see the rest! More...

We got married on May 19th in Redondo Beach. We were excited to book with them, since we had seen amazing photos that Sam had taken at many places, including our venue. We booked Sam both for our Mendhi party two days before the wedding, and for the wedding day itself. Sam was friendly and easy to work with. He made sure to get all the shots we had requested, and he was really good at picking up on key moments that should be photographed. So far we have seen our amazing preview photos on the blog and they made us very happy! More...

Joey and his team are great, I wouldn't recommend anyone else. From the beginning to end they were very professional, patient and kind. Joey sat down with us prior to the wedding and we created the day of photography itinerary. I was very impressed with the detail and the questions he was asking to make sure he captured everything special. For example my sister played the viola during mass and he made sure to add these types of details to the itinerary so the photographer could capture these moments. Joey also cares for his clients, we met a lot of vendors that only cared about the money and not the customer.

Henry was our photographer the day of the wedding. My husband and I are very happy with his professionalism, talent and preparedness; he even knew how to put my veil back on! Henry kept us on track during the day and the timeline and events we had set during the sit down with Joey, was exactly what happened. Weddings are very stressful and I was happy that the photography wasn't an issue and everything we planned happened exactly like it was suppose to. For any other major special occasion I will definitely be hiring Joey and his staff; they're the best!

The whole process was seamless and easy with Joey, and we couldn't be happier with our initial previews. We found Joey's initial consultation and wedding day timeline super helpful. On the day of our wedding Joey and Ethan were prompt, professional and genuinely fun to work with. They helped bring out the best shots in each situation and we have had several guests comment on what a great job both photographers did in capturing not only us (the bride and groom) but the entire event. We really feel like Joey listened to the specific photographs that we wanted. We wanted a mix of artistic shots around our venue and photo journalistic pictures of the event, and Joey nailed it.

Joey and his team are more than photographers. They are true artists. Joey captures moments that will surprise and delight you. Then he takes those photos and turns them into something extraordinary. Our wedding was unusual, because we are 80 and 70 years old. He captured the joy we share, and the love coming from our children and grandchildren. He also captured something that can't be conveyed in words - the tenderness of two people in the autumn of life, finding a very special love. We can't say enough about how happy we are with his work.

We are so happy we chose Joey Ikemoto to photograph our wedding. Being 80 and 70 years old, we wanted someone who could capture the specialness of two people finding each other so late in life. Our wedding was very small, with just our children, grandchildren and a great-granddaughter (18 people) in attendance. Joey has a way of engaging everyone, and his photos reflect that. They are pure magic. Words can't convey the beauty, originality and very personal quality of our photos. We couldn't be happier, and are so grateful to him for giving us a way to recapture our amazing day over and over again. What a beautiful way for our grandchildren and great-grandchildren to be able to "know" us in the decades ahead, when we will be watching down on our beautiful families! More...

My husband and I hired Joey and his team for our wedding and we were not disappointed. Joey sat down with us and gave us a run down of the schedule for the day of the wedding and listed out places where we could take pictures; previous photographers I had hired had never done this. The schedule for the day of the wedding turned out exactly how we planned; no flaws.

Henry was our photographer for the day of the event. He was very professional, on time, courteous and has amazing talent. The photos are beautiful, professionally taken and artistic.
I highly recommend Joey and his team - they are talented and professional but they also care very much about the customer. I value that because other vendors we hired disappeared after the event and didn't bother to give a courtesy call afterwards.

I would highly recommend Joey and his team. We had our wedding at Los Verdes Golf Course but I was in New York for school while we were planning. I felt comfortable with this studio because they have extensive experience with the venue, but also because they are just true professionals. They were extremely organized, responsive to all my questions, and flexible with planning meetings. We planned a timeline months in advance, and the day of the wedding went MORE smoothly than I even hoped it would. The best part: the photos. INCREDIBLE. We just saw our preview photos and they're the perfect mix of candid, romantic, and epic. Ask for Sam as your photographer and you'll thank yourself later. More...

When we were in the process of selecting a photographer for our wedding, we were overwhelmed by so many choices. But once we viewed the beautiful and artistic photos on the Joey Ikemoto Photography website, we stopped looking further and knew we found our guy. The team, Tracy, Kacie, and Joey were a pleasure to work with. Extremely prompt with replies to questions and concerns. Joey made sure to go over the timeline with me, to make sure we had the proper flow. Our photographers were Nathan and Austin. They were such a joy to work with. Very easy going, and even managed to get some giggles and smiles out of my 5yr old niece. Nathan directed us well with photos, poses, and with the flow for the reception. I would have been lost without him. My husband and I had so much fun during our photo shoot on the beach, just outside of Chart House Redondo, where we had our reception. Once we saw our pictures online, we were amazed and pleasantly surprised with their artistic talent. They were truly able to capture such beautiful memories. Now our most difficult decision is choosing photos. We want them all!! They’re all beautiful! I do not have enough kind words for this company.

He also did an amazing job on our engagement shoot and he definitely delivered with the ideas we were going for with the nature theme.

Joey, Henry plus Joey’s son are great and made everyone feel comfortable and their photos came out beautiful!

AMAZING is the only word we can use to describe Joey Ikemoto Photography! Joey and his staff were an instrumental part of our day being such a success.

From the moment we sat down to discuss the schedule of events, they used their vast experience of wedding day photography to help us revise our day and make it flawless.

Sam and Austin were punctual, VERY professional, and super talented!! Once the formal photos were taken, they both melted into the background and snapped hundreds of pictures while we partied the night away, never missing a beat.

We cannot say enough good things about the entire staff, especially Sam and Austin. We promise you will not be disappointed!!

Joey Ikemoto Studios was my first choice (and should be yours!) when selecting a wedding photographer for my big day in 2017. The images produced by their team are some of the most striking you will find. Our photographer, Sam (and his assistant), displayed phenomenal talent, organization and service! Levi and I SO appreciate the artistry and professionalism displayed by Joey Ikemoto Studios. Our entire nuptial experience was improved by selecting them- from prompt communication and budgeting to planning our itinerary in their cozy offices- it is easy to see why they are such awarded experts in their field. We had several young children in the wedding and they handled that in stride as well! I loved that some of your photos are displayed on their website blog for family and friends to see, which was awesome since a lot of our family is in Alaska and couldn’t attend. The amazing things captured forever in frame on our special day make me feel like my dream wedding was finally realized and forever immortalized.

Joey Ikemoto Studios was my first choice (and should be yours!) when selecting a wedding photographer for my big day in 2017. The images produced by their team are some of the most striking you will find. Our photographer, Sam (and his assistant), displayed phenomenal talent, organization and service! Levi and I SO appreciate the artistry and professionalism displayed by Joey Ikemoto Studios. Our entire nuptial experience was improved by selecting them- from prompt communication and budgeting to planning our itinerary in their cozy offices- it is easy to see why they are such awarded experts in their field. The amazing things captured forever in frame on our special day make me feel like my dream wedding was finally realized and forever immortalized. To the entire staff @ Joey Ikemoto Studios: THANK YOU and Much Love!!

We could not be happier with Joey Ikemoto's photography. Joey and his team made the entire process smooth and enjoyable. Their years of experience really shine through everything from the photos themselves to how they interacted with our guests and the wedding party. When my now wife first discovered and suggested Joey Ikemoto Photography, I was very hesitant. After sitting down and speaking with Joey and meeting some of his team all my hesitation went out the window. Joey explained how everything worked, broke down a timetable, described how his equipment was a par above everyone else and really proved to us his price. After that, we were sold. When the time came, they delivered. We had Sam and Nathan with us on our wedding day. They arrived promptly at my soon to be bride's hotel and began their work. Taking beautiful, elegant, and creative photos of her accessories, dress, and all of the prep work while never being "in the way" of her stylist and bridesmaids. Even with the flower girls, Sam and Nathan had them laughing a giggling and when the girls got distracted they busted out bubbles the capture their attention again. Once my Bride and her girls were dressed and ready, they captured beautiful moments in and around the hotel and really utilized the uniqueness of the environment they were in. Once at the Church then the reception Sam and Nathan continued to capture beautiful pictures. Excellent candid shots all over and even the 'posed' photos look amazing. They had our pictures up on their blog extremely fast and had the photo's for us to review faster than anyone else we knows photographers did. Overall we are extremely happy with Joey Ikemoto Photography and have/will recommend them to anyone looking for a quality photographer. More...

I knew from the second Sam arrived to shoot my wedding I was in great hands. He is a photography genius and a wedding pro. He came into my wedding suite and totally took over (in the best way): knew what shots he needed, had a wedding hook to hang my dress, organized the details to capture everything so beautifully. Sam has the "eye" to arrange photos exactly as they need to be and the discipline and attention to detail to capture the moments you do not want to miss. I could not be more thrilled with my photos - they are just beautiful. I actually want to drive to Torrance and give Sam and the team at Joey Ikemoto the biggest hug. The photos are a dream come true and it was an absolute pleasure spending this very special day with Sam at Joey Ikemoto!

We just got back our wedding photos from Joey Ikeomoto Photography and we are obsessed!!! Sam was our photographer and he did such an awesome job. He captured EVERY moment from getting ready to the ceremony and finally, the party! Everything that I discussed with Sam and Joey prior to the wedding went perfectly. I would recommend Sam and Joey to any person getting married. More...

We had an amazing experience with Joey and the rest of the staff. We planned our wedding in the Los Angeles area from Texas and the communication from the studio was exceptional. All email were quickly responded to (usually within an hour) and phone calls were always answered during business hours. All questions were answered thoroughly and we got no pressure to up sell to a more expensive package.
The week before our wedding Joey called us to go over timeline, specific instructions we had, ensure he knew specific photos we wanted, and answer any last minute questions.

The day of the wedding they arrived on time and jumped right into taking photos. Joey was not only great at his job but acted as a day of stress reliever and kept us all laughing. I am the last of 4 boys to get married and everyone commented the Joey was by far the best photographer they have every seen. The photos all came out better then we could have expected! Cant wait to get the album in! I would recommend Joey to anyone who has any sort of photography needs.

I can't speak highly enough of Joey Ikemoto as my wedding photographer. Not only did he capture the emotion and love of the day, he was a wonderful resource for two of my other vendors--florist and videographer--who were excellent to work with as well. Joey and his staff are true professionals. My Fiancé did not want to feel like he was being photographed all night long and Joey put him at ease during our engagement session and got all the shots I wanted on the wedding day without it feeling too staged or posed. By far, the best decision I made in planning my wedding was hiring Joey. If I could give him 10 stars, I would! More...

We had the pleasure of having Joey Ikemoto Photography (Joey himself, actually!) for our wedding photos. During the entire wedding planning and execution process, Team Ikemoto was very professional, friendly and easy to work with. We loved the final products and would (and HAVE) recommended him to anyone who has asked us for a quality wedding photographer. We're looking forward to working with Team Ikemoto again. More...

We absolutely LOVED working with Joey Ikemoto Photography. The entire team was professional, friendly, and easy to work with. On the day of our wedding, Joey was able to get along with everyone in our wedding party (there was 22 adults and 5 children... not including the parents and grandparents!). We had a 200+ traditional Catholic wedding at the Old Santa Barbara Mission followed by a separate location for reception, and a third location for additional photos with our large wedding party. Joey was up and ready to go for 12+ hours, truly a pleasure to work with. We loved working with him and are looking forward to working with him again. More...

After my now husband I and got engaged, I had a few things on my "must have" list... one of which was an amazing photographer. We met with just one photographer - obviously Joey. Before going in to meet the man himself, we did the typical research on wedding photography and a bunch of socal photographers as recommended by friends, family, weddingwire, theknot, yelp, etc.Going into the meeting, we were familiar with Joey's work and some of his associates (Sam, Nate and Henry). One of the most important factors for us was to feel comfortable with our photographer. This person becomes the invisible third party to your special day, so it was super crucial for us to both be able to feel comfortable in our own skin. Joey and his entire team were professional, friendly, easy to worth with (they responded to my incessant e-mails and were very nice... even when I sent hangry e-mails :D), and produce amazing photos. We've already recommended him to anyone who has asked. Joey and his team are the best! We love the Ikemoto team and are looking forward to working with everyone again! More...

We got married at the Wayfarer's Chapel in October. We chose Joey & his colleagues for several reasons. We only needed someone to photograph the few hours of the wedding, and did not need an engagement session or reception coverage. They had a package that was super affordable to what we needed, which the other photographers could not provide, or would for a lot more money. They also have photographed the Wayfarer's chapel for years and knew how to work with the special lighting issues, building structures, the very limited time frame to get all the pics we needed and they knew exactly how to move us all around and use the spaces in the church to get the most beautiful spots. They all have a lot of training and education, and I believe do a lot of continued education to stay on top of their field, which was really reassuring. They have a beautiful website showcasing their best as well.
We had Henry and his associate. We are not a typical couple, both being over 6'3 and me having a special request about not photographing a medical condition I have insecurities about. Henry was so professional, organized, knew how to work with everyone to make us feel comfortable, get what he needed, even from the kids, and worked really well with the church staff. He was so affirming to me about what I was worried about without having to go over again which can be so hard. I felt comfortable right off the bat which is such a big deal!
On your special day, you only get one chance to get it right! You only get one chance to capture it the way you want. When the wedding was over and I reflected on the day, and all the things that were perfect, and all the little things that didn't go right. Henry and his crew nailed it without a doubt!!

We got married at the Wayfarer's Chapel in October.  We looked at several photographer options.  We only needed a photographer  for the ceremony since we were from out of town and our reception would be later at a different venue.  We are also not a typical couple,  both of us being over 6'3 and I have a medical condition  that I am insecure about especially in pictures.  We also wanted photographer's who knew how to work with the Wayfarer's chapel, which is all glass so has specific lighting issues, and a short alotted time to get married which is very regimented and limited so we knew we had to make the time count and wanted the best we could get.  There were so many reasons we chose Joey and his colleagues.  First they were very flexible with what we needed, they had a package that met our needs where other photographers did not (we didn't need an engagement session and only needed hours at the church, and no reception coverage).   They are very affordable, especially for their high quality services, and offer many different packages.  They  have photographed weddings at the Wayfarer's church for years so they were so familiar with the best spots to get the best shots, especially at 2:00 in the afternoon (the hardest light time in the day), and they knew how to move us around the church to get the great shots while being discrete so guests and we didn't see each other before the ceremony. The church staff the whole time also said how they love when Joey & his team photograph, and they really worked well with each other to coordinate our time.   They were familiar with the lighting issues and structure of the church knowing where to stand and be to get the best coverage of our event.   They are also all very educated in their field, and receive a lot of training, and from what I can tell are  required to do continued education and trainings to stay expert in their skills.Our photographer was Henry and his assistant.  We met with Joey a couple days before.  I asked if they could work around my condition, and went over how things would flow and what was important to us.On the day of our wedding, Henry was there before us to meet.  Without even a flinch or a whole new discussion, he simply affirmed he went over everything with Joey, and understood what we needed, and gave me a nod and assured me what I had talked with Joey about and I had nothing to worry about.  This in itself was worth everything to me!  Everything! It can be so hard to have to go over things again and again, and see how people react ect, and right off he never had a reaction and made me feel at ease. He was so kind, so professional, organized, and really knew how to work in a very fast and effective way to make everyone feel comfortable,  get what he needed from everyone, even the kids,  and maximized the limited time we had to get all the important pictures we needed.  I would recommend Joey and his Colleagues over and over without any hesitation.  Especially if you are getting Married at the Wayfarer's Chapel.  We were so blessed to have had a dream wedding at a dream venue and the best photographers to capture it all!    I feel like with your special day,  you only have one chance to get things right, and one chance to capture it the way you hope it can be, and want the best you can get who can get it right, which we know without a doubt they did!

Words cannot begin to express the memories of our wedding day that were captured!
From the time we picked the venue, we knew Joey and his team would be the best to help us capture it! Planning was extremely easy and we were able to get the most built into the day with Joey's suggestions. He helped determine where we could catch the best light and even gave us options for the day, since you never know what the sunset will do.
Our photographer, Sam, was non stop fun from the get go and was able to laugh with us and ensure the happiness from that day spilled through the camera. We were able to get a beautiful mix of candid and artistic photos from our day. Our guest kept commenting how they were a perfect mix of fun and professional, accommodating to get pictures on the fly. He was the best working with our flower girls (both age 4) and getting adorable photos of them.
All of the pictures have come out perfect, and in the words of some of the family, they are "timeless and elegant, but we see your personalities come through!"

Having Joey photograph our wedding was an absolutely amazing experience! Joey is so talented as a photographer, he's also such a warm person that he quickly puts you at ease and makes you forget the stress of the day! My pictures are simply gorgeous and not only are they gorgeous but they truly capture the spirit of the event! Joey took photos that will constantly remind us of the beauty of that day, and that true love does last forever. The photos he took that day are priceless pieces of our life for so many reasons. Im so thankful Joey was there that day! I can't imagine how anyone else could've done as beautiful of a job as he did! I cannot say enough great things about him , he is hands down the best photographer I've ever worked with. I was in the fashion industry for many years , he surpasses them all. He is a wonderfully gifted photographer and infact a wonderful human being! Go with Joey you will fall in love with him and his work too! More...

I totally believe in family portraits and remembering our loved ones... and the value of that hit home even harder this past year when we lost mom. ...(age 92). I am SO THANKFUL for the portraits Joey took of our family. We did it a couple different times, about 5 years apart, but they were SO great. Everyone is awkward when in front of a camera and expected to smile- and few of us can summon up a "real" smile on command... but Joey is so funny and friendly and kept us all cracking up and they were the BEST expressions on all of us! Of course the location, background and arrangement of the group was great (expected from a master photographer) but the magic of it all, and what I love, every time I see our pictures is the joy and the REAL smiles he captured. There are lots of decent photographers out there but so few that possess the true personality and genuine hilarious character it takes to get great expressions on top of that. We will be going to Joey for our family portraits for as long as we are a family! More...

Joey came to California Crosspoint Academy in the Bay Area to help us shoot promotional pictures of our new building. He was so professional and so chill at the same time. He was always open to our thoughts and ideas and threw out so many creative ideas to present our school in a distinctive style. He was easy to work with and wanted to really get to know us, not just as clients, but people. All of the students and staff he photographed felt totally at ease and he got the best out of each person. He went above and beyond the call of duty for us. When the shoot was over he sent us the proofs so quickly and followed up to make sure we were happy with the pictures. Skill and customer service, what more could we ask for! More...

It's hard to find the words to express how happy and grateful I am to have had Joey and his team as our wedding photographers! Joey is so talented and THE best at what he does! Joey and his team made the whole process as painless and informative as it could be, and were great with communicating with me in person, via phone and email, and answering any questions we had. Joey also did a fantastic job with working with us to come up with a very detailed timeline of the day of the wedding - where we would be at what time, and what and who he would be taking pictures of, etc. I was so impressed on the day of our actual wedding. Joey and his assistant had the Groom, MOH, BM, and I start out at the hotel and then we headed over to the venue afterwards. Joey and his assistant arrived at each location promptly and got to work right away. Joey has such a great eye - he asked us to do so many poses and took so many pictures, and it's like he instantly knew what to do to capture each one. On top of all that, he kept us all on schedule and did a great job trying to get us all to relax and most importantly have fun and be ourselves. He has such a great personality, attitude, and cracked a lot of funny jokes. We received so many compliments from guests about how friendly and professional Joey and his assistant were, and were surprised how seamlessly they moved about to capture every possible moment and every single guest in attendance. We recently received a sneak preview of our wedding pictures and they look absolutely beautiful and unique!!! Each shot is like a piece of art or brings back emotions and wonderful memories from that day. We can't wait to see the rest of the pictures!!! More...

My daughter's wedding and every memory from her dress, jewelry, garter, bouquet, invitation- was captured in a photo.

You don't really realize how vital a photographers role is on your wedding day. From the beginning of the morning when I  started getting ready Joey came in with his assistant and the fun began. He set the tone for the whole day and kept a smile on my face and my three-year-old son. He even ate bubbles to get my son to laugh for pictures. When it came time to see all the photographs my husband and I were thrilled because they came out so beautiful. He and his team truly made our day memorable. More...

Even though I haven't seen the finished product yet, just their professionalism and attitude was enough for me to write this review. Sam and Jason were pros at getting the kids to focus on smiling for the camera and they never said no to any of our requests. I honestly feel their positive attitude and their willingness to accommodate our wishes made our wedding day that much better! More...

Hiring Joey as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Throughout the entire night there were so many moments that I tried to engrave in my memory so I would never forget, but thanks to Joey, those memories will last forever. He was able to capture not just the beauty in every detail, but also somehow captured the emotion we felt in every moment. I felt like I relived my entire wedding day looking through my pictures, and that exceeded every expectation I ever had for my wedding photos. Joey is organized, flexible, and dependable, which is why I trusted him and never doubted his ability to capture everything I wanted on our big day. He really takes the time to plan everything ahead of time from timing, travel, lighting, and weather. He is able to factors in all of the details to create a seamless minute by minute itinerary for the day of the wedding, which gave us a stress free day that went exactly as it was perfectly planned.  Joey and his team are professional and nothing short of a class act. They really know how to get the job done and make the process enjoyable, even for the formal pictures. I really enjoyed having him and his assistants at my wedding and I received so many compliments from my guest who thought him and his team were amazing (especially with kids). Having Joey shoot out wedding was worth every penny we spent, because there is no price you can put on the masterpiece he created for us. Joey is an artist and I am so grateful for his work. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for someone to capture the magic in everyone moment on their wedding day. More...

Went to this studio with a promo offer we received from the hospital lactation consultant for one free 4x6 print. We went on to purchase the baby panel series. This studio has many good points including friendly staff, nice background/prop options, and the work itself is very good. My only, but major, pain point was the sticker shock at print prices. Although the prints are obviously professional/artist quality (vs. CVS Photo etc.), it wasn't made clear to me why this justified the cost given that I already paid for the sitting. Even with the Kids Club discounts, I could only afford 5-6 prints from each session. For the same cost ($150-$250), I could have printed dozens on my own if they had provided the option for getting digital files. There was also a limited amount of time the photos were made available for purchase, after which point there was a fee to reload them to the gallery. Maybe I was spoiled by my wedding photographer who provided us a full CD with printing rights that setup unreasonable expectations, whereas Joey operates in a more traditional format. If you can afford it by all means use Joey and you will not be disappointed. More...

As much as I LOVE Yelp, I never write reviews. I can not think of any establishment being more appropriate than Joey Ikemoto Photography for my very first review.  I was on the verge of tears and a mental breakdown because I could not find a reasonable and good photographer in San Francisco for our wedding.  A friend recommended Joey and said it wouldn't hurt to contact them and see if they can travel. I'm so glad I did.  We checked out the website, set a meeting, and signed that same day.  They were professional and friendly from the get-go and the pricing was more than reasonable considering the quality of work (compared to San Francisco pricing).  Joey himself shot our engagement photos and masterfully got my husband comfortable enough to genuinely SMILE for the camera.  Sam made the trip to SF to shoot our wedding and he was on top of EVERYTHING. He did a wonderful job of getting amazing shots and keeping us sane.  We are immensely happy with his work and the service we have received is nothing but all-star from everyone.  Tracy and Allison are pretty awesome too. =) I highly recommend these guys.  I can't wait to see the finished album!! I'll come back and post pictures here after I go and pick them up. =) More...

My husband and I had a positive experience with Joey Ikemoto Photography. Joey, Tracy, Allison, and Sam were very professional and easy to work with. They were able to address all of our questions and concerns with ease. Communication was excellent between all staff members and we never felt like we were waiting for a response.  We choose Sam as our photographer and he was excellent. Sam is a natural. He is patient, kind, professional, and directive. I sent a set of images I liked and he was able to capture the same images on our wedding day. I expressed on the day of the wedding that I needed him to be organized and be able to be directive in order to get us to our cocktail hour as quickly as he could but still capturing ALL of the important family photos. He got us in and out sooner than we had anticipated. This was HUGE for us. Well done, Sam!  My one hang up my husband and I go back and forth on is the amount of money we spent on these photos. However, when everything is said and done, we are very please with the overall service. You get what you pay for. More...

This guys good! Although we were there for maternity pics, he has a lot of different setups to cater to what you're looking for. . Prices aren't bad for what you get. The shoot itself was cool. He makes these random comments to get a sincere, authentic smiles which was cool..professional but keeps it casual. Asked questions about what we wanted -which is important. He took his time.. We didnt feel rushed at all.  I'd go back.. And not only because I've already paid More...

Joey was absolutely amazing! He had an assistant on the day (Kevin) who was equally as professional and their ability to direct and relax people was unbelievable. They really exceeded all my expectations and the reviews you have read about how good he is really are true!! I honestly cannot recommend Joey any higher or convey how brilliant he really is! Engagement photos were stunning and my wedding preview photos had me in tears of joy! Every aspect of the wedding day was captured from the intimate moments to the more formal photos in perfect timing. I was blown away with his professionalism and how relaxed he made myself and my husband feel!! 10/10... I Would recommend Joey as Number 1 on your list for photography without a doubt. Absolutely brilliant. More...

Joey Ikemoto Photography's team is hands down the best in the South Bay. Joey was great in the planning process and getting all the details down for the day of our wedding. Sam and Kevin were AMAZING to work with on our special day. We had toddlers to grandparents and everything in between. They were very patient and dedicated to getting the perfect picture. I could not have asked for a better photography team for our wedding! More...

My wife and I hired Joey for our wedding two years ago, and had an excellent experience.  He shot both our engagement photos and the wedding/reception photos.  First:  The photos are spectacular.  The engagement photos were amazing, so much so we bought several that are now framed and center-stage in our room and throughout our house.  The wedding photos are gorgeous, and capture the full array of participants and guests, formal and candid moments, scripted and random actions.  The wedding book is exactly what we expected for our money- a beautiful memorial of the experiences of that day.  Two years down the line on our anniversary, my wife and I revisited our photos and were as impressed with them as we were on Day 1.  That, to us, is real value.  Five star, memories of a lifetime, value.  The ONLY point of question was that out of hundreds of photos that day, there's only one -- one -- of my wife and me in a formal pose on the alter.  Only one.  Luckily, it too is beautiful.Second:  Price.  Honestly, it's not that complicated.  Really, it's not.  Joey has several options- the more you want, the more it costs.  We could have chosen the cheapest book, still would have received the same beautiful photos.  We could have chosen the most expensive book and blown our budget.  We did neither.  It's called options, choices; and it's a selling bonus, not a negative.  Advice is to sit and ask questions until you understand the options and structure - no one will chase you away- BEFORE you decide it's Joey's fault you didn't get it before you pay.  Third:  Photographer.  We used Joey.  I'd seen the work of his others photographers and they too were beautiful, but we preferred  Joey.  Just a matter of choice.  Joey shot the entire day, developing a detailed timeline designed to maximize the photo-ops with minimal impact to the event.  Essentially directing the day, he was professional and his planning indispensable to the day's success. He has a dry sense humor that we enjoyed.  General consensus:  Yeah he's kinda a smart-***, but the photos are BEAUTIFUL! More...

My husband and I chose Joey Ikemoto Photography to do our wedding photos at Wayfarers Chapel and the reception dinner at Terranea Resort. We had Sam the day of our wedding and he was amazing! So flexible, completely fun to work with and he took amazing photos to boot! The entire process from going to their office to explain what we wanted before the wedding down to picking the photos and doing the retouching for our album...it was all top notch and done quickly and with a smile. Their prices are fantastic and they go above and beyond what's necessary. Pictures are everything for a wedding and the people at Joey Ikemoto, especially Sam and Tracy, made it a joy. It was everything I hoped for and more. Thank you for making our day so perfect! More...

During the planning phase of my wedding I knew that photography quality would be something I would not compromise on. It was difficult selecting photographers as well because I planned my wedding from Texas. The entire process of working with Joey and his team was seamless. From the engagement photo session, the planning phase, to the wedding day, the staff was very accommodating and professional. On the day of the wedding, I worked with Sam and his associate and they were awesome! Sam put us all at ease instantly. They got both amazing shots that look like ads out of a magazine as well as some pretty colorful candid ones of me and my family and friends having way too much fun at the reception. I’ve gotten so many compliments on our wedding pictures! I just received my album and it is beautifully done. I’m really glad I didn’t compromise on quality on my wedding photos. I would highly recommend Joey and his team to capture your special day. More...

It was such a pleasure to work with Joey & his staff. Very upbeat & enthusiastic! Gorgeous photos everywhere we had time to take pictures at on the Queen Mary. Perfect lighting! I wish I could've remembered to ask that photos be taken of out guests at the tables towards the beginning of dinner but all venders did need time to eat as well. The album selections is perfect & we love both our engagement & wedding photos that Joey Ikemoto's photography studio blessed us with. With all of our odd requests to include during the cerimony, reception & around the ship, Joey made sure we got it all. Thank you so much for such a beautiful wedding day/night. More...

I can't believe I never yelped Joey, so here it goes. Got hitched about 10 years ago, wife wanted to blow all of our savings on this wedding, she damn near did it, so we figured let's get a great photographer, because I might be to drunk to remember anything, so ill need photos to remember. After dragging me around town looking at every last possible photographer, we decided on Joey. He was very professional, nice, knew what he was talking about, and you can't go wrong when you see the photos he has in his showroom. Just amazing work. Then it comes down to cost. Ouch, top dollar this guy is. But I have to say after we got our photos, the wife was very happy, and I was as well. Very nice work. Our book was done perfect, many many very nice top quality photos. All the way from the engagement photos to the after party, this guy took some amazing shots. He was very professional through the entire process and even put up with some of my not so nice groomsmen during the event, sorry Joey. If I had some other event or another wedding I would not think twice about hiring Joey to shoot my next gig. More...

Amazing pictures, Outstanding service, Reasonable rate.My wife and I spent a lot of time looking for a photographer for our wedding. She really liked the style of photography that Joey does and I appreciated the immense number and range of photos taken, making it easy to find pictures that both of us love.Joey and his assistant were professional, funny, and helpful, making the whole process enjoyable.I noticed some of the other revues mention there being some confusion about the pricing structure, but we did not have the same issue. In fact, depending on the day, package, etc., we found the pricing to the be not only straightforward but affordable as well. Compared to a lot of the other photographers out there, you really get your money's worth here. More...

He was everywhere. He let us know when he arrived and he asked us when we'd like him to leave. When I wanted a picture I would call his name and he was always nearby. He directed the wedding when it needed direction and stayed out of the way when it was directing itself. The only time during the evening when I couldn't find him was when he had told me that he's scouting for a nice photo op outside of the venue and he came back immediately to gather us for it.

This photography company is absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Every employee was very helpful, friendly and professional. it's obvious they have been in the business a long time because they knew exactly how to make me feel happy to celebrate, happy to plan and happy to do business with them. Sam and his associate were my photographers and they made my wedding day even more wonderful than I had hoped. They were on time and very friendly. They made me and my bridal party very comfortable and within five minutes we were all friends, laughing, celebrating, enjoying each others company, and it seemed as if they just so happened to be taking pictures at the time. I just got to see my pictures and I'm so happy with them. Sam got some great shots and everything came out just beautiful. Sam is very talented at what he does. I would recommend this place to anyone. More...

I used Joey Ikemoto  Photography for my wedding last September.  I was doing searches for photographers in the south bay and came across his website and really liked the photos so I made and appointment.  For our first appointment we met with Tracy who explained how the studio works and the pricing structures as well as options for albums and all of those little details and after a while gave us a few minutes to discuss alone.  Joey comes in after five minutes and "closes" the deal. There were a few different price structures depending on how deluxe and album you wanted and there is standard rate if you select one of the studios associate photographers and a higher rate if you select Joey to do your photography.  Joey offered to do our photography personally at the associate rate.  While it is expensive I'm not sure why people find it hard to understand the pricing. The gist of the pricing structure is that you pay a set amount and that amount will end up being an allowance used to create your album and have any prints made up. (A warning: if you want a lot of photos or parent albums made up you'll most likely exceed your allowance and have to pay extra)  On your wedding day itself you pay a set hourly amount  for however long you have the photographer there.  Travel time from his studio to your venue will be factored in.  Our package came with an engagement photo shoot.  We could have our photos taken in the studio with a backdrop or wander around downtown Torrance and take photos outside.  We opted for outside and were lead through what felt like a very routine path taking pictures along the way.  About two weeks later we're given a print out of 300-400 shots to sort through.  We picked one to be used as a favor/take away for our wedding and ordered a few prints of the best shots.  A great touch to our favor photo for our guests was that he requested an invitation and used the colors and pattern of our invitation as the background for our favor. On our wedding day Joey and his assistant showed up to our hotel promptly and took a staggering amount of pictures. We took pictures in the room, in the hallways, in the lobby, outside the hotel and then we all got in a couple of cars and drove to a park nearby and took more pictures before heading to the venue.  It was a 113 degrees outside.  (no joke...it was a record breaking day)  I felt like we were all going to combust but everyone was great and patient.  The assistant would fan me and brought me cold drinks to keep me cool and make sure my make up wouldn't run.  When we made it to the facility we had a little time to freshen up and then take more pictures.  Joey and his assistant were the most personable people and were great at making everyone enjoy getting their photos taken.  Once the events started the worked on getting all of the candid shots of the ceremony and reception and after a couple of hours into the reception as things were winding down they took off. The wait for our photos to be ready felt excruciatingly long.  They teased us by giving us a slideshow preview of a handful of selected shots posted on their website and a couple weeks later we were able to view everything.  It's tough to narrow it all down but we picked around 100-120 pictures for our album, some images for prints and one image for a large format printed canvas.  Another long wait ensues and our album is ready and amazing. I couldn't be happier with the results.  The only reason I can't give a 5 star review is because it's expensive and 2nd, there was a very long 6 month gap between our wedding and finally getting our album.

Joey and his staff were amazing. They photographed our wedding, and we could not have been happier. They were respectful and their pictures were fantastic.

Go in and meet with them, and I am convinced you will want to work with them. More...

Joey Ikemoto did my wedding photos, and the whole process was seamless from start to finish.  He thoroughly explained  the pricing system and the various packages offered.  He was very organized and detailed as we reviewed the timeline for my wedding day.  On the day of the wedding, he was punctual, professional, and great at interacting with the kids and adults.  He even gave me a little snack after the ceremony when I was starving!So now, the wedding pictures.  They turned out great!  We got a lot of candid shots in addition to the traditional posed ones.  As family and friends checked out the photos, the majority of comments were: A) "You look beautiful!", and B) "You look so happy."  EXACTLY what a bride wants to hear regarding her wedding pictures!We ordered an album with Joey's new album option (and also some prints), and my husband and I can't get over how amazing it is.  Tracy (at the studio) was super helpful with the whole choosing and ordering process.  The total cost may have been on the pricey side, but we loved the end result.  I would absolutely go back to Joey Ikemoto for future photography needs.

Where do I start commenting how wonderful Joey made our wedding photography experience? He is such a nice and down to earth guy for the level of experience/ talent/ end product he and his staff possess and produces. This is one professional i gladly recommend with enthusiasm. His work is truly amazing.

From the beginning, Joey was exceptionally professional. Joey is so very organized, his listening to what the customer wants, and communication of what is feasible to available time was impeccable. By Joey's sit-down sessions, me and my wife saw our wedding day unfolding and planned a beautiful, realistic, and flexible shot schedule that more than accommodated what we envisioned for us and our colorful family.

Joey's calm, but driving demeanor allowed for such wonderful shots of me and my bride's colorful family without being the least bit snooty, obtrusive, or being demanding. He definitely knew how to spotlight my beautiful bride on her wedding day, which made me ecstatic. We never knew Joey and his assistant was there until the major shots.

Joey is an awesome photographer.  He has been photographing our family since 1985...high school and college graduations, weddings, babies and family photos.  We wouldn't think about going anywhere else.  In fact, when my husband and I got married we called the studio first to see when Joey was available.  We set our wedding date around his availability.  We continue to have him take photos of our family annually.  Even after all these years, his creativity continues to amaze us.  We have never been dissatisfied with any of his work.  Check out his website and you will be amazed too.

Joey was awesome! He was fun and creative. He made our wedding party and guests feel comfortable and relaxed, and he made them laugh. He had a picture montage of our wedding on his web site in less than to weeks and we were able to share it with all our friends. Many of our friends had used him for their wedding so we knew he would be good! More...

I'm not sure who is taking this review off the site but don't do it just because I had a great experience. It's not just me, it is also my friends from work who had great experince. A wedding planner who recommened him thought very highly of him, his team, and his work. And you know what me and my husband feel the same way. Its not fair to only post the negitative about places. What about the good reviews? My husband and I were treated great and the work were awesome! All of our questions were answered and we even saw the photographer's work that we were hiring. The services are a bit pricey  but like I said before in my review before it got taken off here, that you get what you pay for when it  comes to this kind of work. And the homework that me and my husband did Joey Ikemoto's place was a very fair price and we just loved his work! I know the others on here had problems with this place but believe me, I had none! I am going to get my friends who loved his services to write a review on here. More...

I LOVE my pictures!! I have nothing bad to say about the day at all. The photographers were very professional and everything turned out beautiful! Because we were operating on a budget, we didn't opt for the package with Joey Ikemoto but rather had one of his associate photographers (Sam Sean) do our wedding. I've gotten so many complements on my wedding pictures and I would totally recommend Joey Ikemoto Photography! More...

I don't think we have ANYTHING bad to say about Joey Ikemoto Photography. Throughout the year and a half planning process we had for the wedding, I immediately became a huge fan of this photographer! And after booking, I constantly went to the website to look through slideshows of their recent weddings just to ogle the beauty of their shots. I absolutely melt when I look at their photography. And the studio is beautiful if you get a chance to visit. They are extremely friendly and experienced artists. Our slide show is up, but we can't wait to see the lot of the pictures.

I VERY MUCH RECOMMEND JOEY IKEMOTO!!!

Joey Ikemoto Photography made our wedding experience even sweeter. The images that was captured were breathtaking. From the start, we felt comfortable with their customer service. Their packages were explained and valued very reasonably. They did not fail on what they're called to do. Joey and Alan were great to work with during our wedding day. They were snapping the shutter buttons for 12 hours or so and they saved the best for last. Thank you, thank you! Highly recommended!!! A+++++++ More...

i would highly recommend Joey Ikemoto if you want an amazing professional photographer and staff for an important event.  When i was getting married my friends told me to get the BEST especially since these images will last a lifetime. Needless to say, Joey Ikemoto's name popped into my head.  I have been familiar with his photography from prior weddings.  I was not only impressed by his work and how he was able to capture the emotions from the day, but also with the variety of styles he was able to incorporate and customize - from artistic, traditional, photojournalism to still cinema.  After thorough researching of his website, viewing his work and speaking with Joey Ikemoto and his staff, my parents and i were very comfortable with hiring him for my wedding.  On the day of the wedding, Joey and his staff were punctual, organized, and went out of their way to help the other vendors on site (since the other vendors were unfamiliar with the grounds).   In addition, he made the guests feel comfortable and at ease while shooting throughout the entire wedding and reception. The results of the photos and layouts he did were unbelievable and i am forever grateful for the beautiful moments he captured on film. They surpassed all of our expectations in every realm.  The photos were and still are artistic, captivating, emotional, momentous... i could go on forever.... It has been one year later since our wedding on May 3rd, 2008 and we still have our wedding album displayed in our living room as well as the portraits hung in our house.  When we have a spare moment to share among our busy schedule, my husband and I take a brief moment to stand and look at the portraits.  Looking at the photos from that day, we still feel as if our wedding happened yesterday, and all the memories come rushing right back to us.  Thank you Joey, Tracy, Gerry for still bringing tears to our eyes.

Joey was the first vendor we booked for our wedding - we actually booked him over a year before our actual wedding date to make sure he was available! He is on the expensive side, but he is worth every penny! He is very talented and has a great personality. He was so easy to work with on our wedding day and he kept us laughing all day. Our family & friends were also very impressed with Joey on the wedding day and he also is great at getting children to smile in front of the camera which is not easy to do. He has a lot of experience with weddings (his studio shoots weddings every weekend!), and it definitely showed in the way he handled our wedding. If you are looking for a photographer who is experienced, talented and easy to work with - Joey is your guy! He is one of those vendors you can book and not worry about a thing! He also helps plan your wedding day about 3 months prior to your date which we found to be very helpful. He was definitely one of our favorite wedding vendors!  We also worked with Tracy on our album, and he was also very pleasant and patient with us... ask for Tracy if Joey is not available! More...

We couldn't wait to get our proofs back - Everyone looked relaxed, happy/excited... All of the emotions you would expect on your wedding day are captured. Our photo album is original and my entire family loves it! Joey also did our engagement session for us - my husband and I felt that Joey truly captured us in those 100s of pictures that he took!

I took my daughter to Joey Ikemoto about 4 years ago. The studio is located in Old Torrance. His quality of work is evident when you walk into the studio. Beautiful works of art adorn the walls. Overall I was satisfied with the quality of the pictures and with Joey himself. Joey does a great job of working with small babies. My daughter was 3 months when I first brought her in.  I joined the kids club which enabled me to bring her back for more photo sessions over a period of time.  I have a couple of coworkers that have since used him to photograph their weddings and were pleased. If you're looking for a great photographer he is it. More...
