Kerem is an excellent photographer and a longtime friend of mine. He recently shot our wedding and we couldn't be happier. Kerem also helped us planning the wedding when we asked for help.A true professional at what he is doing and we love the outcome.Would recommend him without hesitation. More...

Kerem and Jen are wonderful! We had a great experience with them since we found them thru Yelp.  When I first emailed Kerem inquiring about a photographer, he was very responsive and told us we could meet at a wedding vendor venue so that we could get to know each other and not feel obligated to pick them.  From there,  we booked Kerem and Jen as our photographers for our engagement shoot and our big day. Not only did Kerem keep me calm the week before our big day, but he even helped me with the logistics of family photos and gave me a realistic idea of how things would go day of. Even after the wedding,  Kerem delivered pictures quickly and while we were slow to pick out our album he was patient with us. 7 months later,  I am still in contact with him and asking for another album for our parents. I really enjoyed having him and Jen be our photographer. =) More...

In a scramble to put together last-minute holiday photos, I stumbled upon Kerem Hanci. I couldn't have been luckier! Getting the kids wrangled for pictures is no small feat, but Kerem brought his zen vibes to our photo session, making it a truly enjoyable experience. He nailed our aesthetic and provided us with a full gallery of amazing shots quickly enough so we could get our cards out. The only tough part was choosing which photos to use! Thank you Kerem!

My Husband and I used Kerem for our engagement photography and Kerem and his wife for our wedding in October 2014. We had a special connection with them as my husband is Turkish and I am American and Kerem and his wife are the same. We were recommended by another Turkish friend, but the moment we met Kerem to talk about our photograpy needs, we immediately knew we would use him and had no desire to even meet with another photographer.
When I arrived at my venue late and still not ready I was incredibly stressed but Kerem and his wife Jennifer (who I hadn't met before) were calm cool and collected and just made it work. They were both so enthusiastic about the venue and their excitement to shoot us at our venue only made us more excited. They work incredibly well together, and get a variety of standard and great artistic shots. Our guests continuously came up to us and commented on how great our photography team was. On top of that we recieved final access to all of our wedding photographs in less than 3 weeks. Based on all of my friends experience with wedding photography, this is unheard of. We have some incredibly beautiful photos to choose from and my husband and I are extremely greatful to this great couple who was such a positive inspiration on our wedding day.

My husband and I are so happy we decided to have a professional photographer for our wedding ceremony.  Kerem and his team were punctual, friendly and understanding of the pressures of the day.   He made us feel at ease in front of the camera and captured shots from every angle we wanted expressed in our wedding photos.  He isconversant, entertaining and experienced.  We could not have asked for a better photographer.  I highly recommend him for all your photography needs.

Kerem recently took our wedding photos on Catalina Island and he did an incredible job! He was friendly, professional and made everyone feel really comfortable during our 6 hour shoot. My entire family felt like we were hanging out with a really fun, long time friend for the day. This made our wedding day even more special and unforgettable. Not to mention the amazing photographs that were captured throughout the day! Love him & his work. He's very talented. More...

Being a wedding DJ who averages roughly 100 weddings per year, needless to say, I have come across quite a few photographers. I have experienced many different personalities and work flows to say the least. Every now and then one vendor REALLY stands out! Karem Hanci Photography is one such company. I had the pleasure of working with them a few month back at a wedding and all I can say is wow. You instantly can see from the big smiles, their awesome personalities, and their interaction with the guest, they truly love what they do. Most photographers seem to be in a rush to get through wedding events so they can leave at there contracted times, but I never felt that they were in a hurry. They just focusing on getting awesome shots and bringing out the best in their subjects. I also noticed that they are were really at good and getting people to relax in front of the camera. The next day I really was really interested in seeing some of their work so I googled Karem Hanci Photography. I was BLOWN away by the awesome photos and amazing reviews! As you can probably tell by this review, it was awesome to work along side them and I will definitely recommend them to my future clients looking for a fun, professional, and gifted photography company!

I worked with Kerem this weekend on a wedding at the Westlake Village Inn. Kerem and his team were truly respectful of all of my Decour and all of the belongings that we put together for the wedding. They made their way around us and not like other photographers and videographers that wish for us to work around them. His team was extremely professional they dressed appropriately and they were very friendly. I can't wait to see his pictures because the ones that I saw before they were photo shopped look amazing already! More...

I had the absolute pleasure of working with this couple on several occasions. Weddings, birthdays, etc. I organize events for out of towners and provide concierge services for them. I worked with KHP for a wedding starting at a Consulate (extremely punctual and professional manners) followed by a photo session at the beach. He coordinated everything from the perfect "light" hours to sunset time and the couple ended up with hundreds of dreamy photos to remember their special day. At another occasion, a large family arrived to celebrate their daughter's birthday with several of her friends and we had an extremely fun time, shooting all sorts of instagram worthy :) dynamic photos. Both the family and the impossibly hard-to-please teenagers ended up loving their session and the results. KHP is very accommodating, don't time you by the minutes, absolutely no pressure. Results always show the chill session you have with them. They do not ask you to get into those awkward poses just because "everyone else does". Whatever you are comfortable with, they are comfortable with. Absolute breeze. Looking forward to a nice shoot with my own kids soon! Highly, HIGHLY recommended. More...

I'm not really a review writing kinda guy, hence this being my first. Its my first for an absolutely great reason; Kerem and Jennifer. They make an amazing team, makes sense that they're married. A wonderful couple, but when it comes to their business, absolute professionals. Kerem did our engagement session and Jen joined for our wedding. We had a blast! Kerem and Jen did an amazing job capturing all the great moments and despite having an additional 2 cameras in the way (videographers) Kerem managed the shot schedule with precision. We didn't feel as if Jen and Kerem were vendors, they truly made us feel like they were a part of the family, just holding cameras. Our wedding was the greatest day of our lives, and this phenomenal team made sure we could relive the moments with friends and family forever. Thank you for everything! More...

Jennifer + Kerem are the dream team! The way we met was no joke, meant to be. From the first time we met with Kerem, we were instantly so connected with him, his personality, and his art. Then we found out that his beautiful and talented wife, Jennifer were a dynamic duo. They were always both so quick to answer any questions, concerns, and comments. We knew they would both spend much of their time with us, and always made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. My husband, who is so shy and quiet, was laughing and didn't feel uncomfortable. They captured our happiness and our excitement during our special day. It's almost been a year, and we still smile looking at our wedding pictures! Our guests even loved them too! Said they were not only our photographers, but they were part of the family, They never made us feel awkward or forced, but natural. I love these two so much! I can't wait for our next milestone to shoot with them again! We received our pictures so quickly on their beautiful website. You will NOT find a better, more talented couple!! WE LOVE THEM! More...

I have had the extreme pleasure of working with both members of this team, both Kerem and Jen.  Kerem shot my maternity pics for my first pregnancy.  First of all, Kerem is an absolute delight, he is funny and engaging and felt like an old friend right from the beginning.  He had tons of really creative ideas but he was so easy-going about trying some of our ideas too.  He met us in Malibu and we took tons of time shooting around Paradise Cove.  The pictures are so beautiful, I don't know how he did it but he was able to perfectly capture who we are and how we felt about welcoming our baby into the world.  He is truly gifted with the heart of an artist and just the right amount of technical savvy to have an efficient and productive session. Jen recently shot maternity photos for our second baby. This session was equally as enjoyable.  First of all we were totally running late (can't seem to get anywhere on time these days) I texted her to let her know we were running late and she texted back simply "Okay, relax and don't stress." It was exactly what I needed to hear.  Feeling bad about being late would have been a bad foot to start off on and she totally relieved me of that stress.  I really appreciated that.  She picked an amazing location and she had tons of awesome ideas.  It was so funny, I wasn't feeling great that day and I kinda felt funny in some of the positions she put us in but when I got the pics back I realized she was so right on.  Every shot and location we went to turned out beautifully.  Jen has a great eye.  She was also a ton of fun, easygoing, patient with our 3 year old and she has a great sense of humor. Kerem Hanci Photography is so efficient.  The turn around on our pics was crazy fast.  I was so excited to see the pics and I had them in my inbox so quickly.  Looking at the pictures and choosing which to use was simple.  Their system is so accessible and easy.  I even asked them to remove a gate from one of the pics and they were able to help with that in no time flat. I cannot recommend Kerem Hanci Photography highly enough.  You will be so happy with your session experience and you will LOVE the photos.  Ours are so precious to us and we are so grateful to have them.  Thank you Kerem and Jen!

I cannot say enough about how great Kerem and Jen were as the photographers at our wedding in September. I truly felt less stressed having them there, knowing they would take care of getting everyone where they needed to be and would take all the pictures they needed. And the pictures came out SO GREAT!! We just got them back a couple days ago and haven't stopped looking at them. The lighting, the layout, the faces that they were able to capture are amazing. And the best thing is, I never even noticed them moving around during the ceremony and reception, and yet there they were, capturing every important moment. I could not have asked for a more pleasant, lovely and talented photography duo for our wedding. Also, I never felt pressured to upgrade my package or add on anything. In retrospect though, I wish we had opted to spend a little more and get a videographer, so if you're in doubt, just do it! Thanks again, Kerem and Jen! More...

1/4/2015 There is no one who is more deserving of a great review, than Kerem Hanci. At the time my husband and I first met Kerem, I was pregnant and looking for someone to possibly shoot both, our wedding as well as our maternity photos. I had met with several photographers prior to having met with Kerem. If you are like I was, you're probably looking for the absolute best photographer, yet are slightly scared of the cost. Well I'll tell you right now, Kerem could charge double what he does and get away with it...but he doesn't, because that's just the type of person he is. All the other photographers were trying to nickel and dime us, saying they would be able to add one thing, but wouldn't be able to another ( such as editing, and things like that.) From the very moment we met with Kerem at his studio, we knew he was the one. There's just something about meeting someone who simply loves what they do, a true artist, and right off the bat, that was apparent with him. We trusted him, and knew he would go above and beyond for us...and did he ever. Our maternity shoot was GORGEOUS. And our wedding, well the photos made our jaw drop. We had a beach ceremony, and the photos look like they're torn straight out of a magazine. Aside from his stunning photography and natural talent, there's so much more that makes Kerem stand out from the rest. And might I just add, he has this way of way of making you feel like you are his #1 priority and his only client, when in reality, he is basically booked every week.He was there early; stayed late. He put me at ease (both, as a 7 month pregnant lady, and a bride... that's no easy task). He is willing to work with you on so many different levels. There were times I couldn't talk on the phone because I had a sleeping baby on me, so we would communicate through email. There were times I could only talk on the phone because I had a screaming baby in my arms, and he was always there to answer my call. You get the gist of it. He has even taken the time to answer my late night emails about his experience as a parent (he has a little girl), when I needed some quick advice. Apparently I am very technologically unsavvy, and he personally took the time to upload my photos to my USB for me. His turn around time is insanely fast...we're talking weeks! Kerem is just such a special individual who is so incredibly talented. I am so grateful to Yelp for bringing us together. We absolutely know our wedding (and pregnancy) would have been a completely different experience had he not been a part of it. Not only do we have the photos and memories to last us a lifetime, but we have made a life long friend. Words can not express how truly grateful we are. Thank you Kerem, we love you!!! More...

Kerem is a wonderful and talented photographer. He shot our engagement session and our wedding day. Our photos came out so beautiful. He truly captured the day perfectly. His photo-journalistic style told the story of our day so beautifully that it was difficult to narrow down our favorite photos. These are photos that we will look back on when we are 80 and forever will reminisce of our special day. Thank You Kerem! More...

The minute I met Kerem, I knew he was the photographer we would hire for our wedding day. His photography is gorgeous but more important for us was his easy going personality and sense of humor. We had a carnival wedding - outdoors - and he and his wife (also a talented photographer!) were the perfect pair for us. Their personalities made us feel like we were old friends with them immediately. Supremely attentive without being intrusive, professional but not pretentious. He really listened to the requests I made as far as getting candids and crazy shots of our bridal party. I enjoyed working with him so much. More...

Kerem photographed our wedding in June and he was absolutely great. His wife assisted him that day and they were both incredibly professional and made us all feel very comfortable while photographing the most intimate moments. He was always on time at our meetings and the price was reasonable. He gave us ideas and worked with our vision of what we wanted. He managed to work with our schedule(bride being late and all) never fretting. We highly, highly recommend Kerem!! More...

Kerem was amazing to work! He did both our engagement and wedding photos and both came out great (despite the rain during our engagement photo shoot! ).

Kerem is the man. I'm a wedding videographer and I worked along side him recently. He is so easy to work with (I can't say the same for most photographers I work with), so laid back yet at the same time very professional. One of the most important qualities a wedding photographer can have is a good personality and a positive attitude because he's going to be around you all day... Kerem excels in this respect and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. More...

Kerem photographed our wedding ceremony in Glendale and Pasadena in October and we can't say enough about how great everything was.  He kept in touch the week prior in order to get the right impression of what we wanted and he did an amazing job the day of.  He was on time, very professional, and kept us on task despite the hectic circumstances of a wedding day.  He made us feel very comfortable and very special.  He worked with all of our guests as well as our venues.  He and his associate photog Sasha worked very hard to get every aspect of our day.  His style put us at ease and let us be ourselves.  His ideas were refreshing and really exciting.  At the end of the night, we couldn't wait to see the finished product.  And we just have.  We were able to see the raw images of the photos Kerem and Sasha took that day and we are extremely happy!!

My fiance and I had our engagement photos taken by Kerem and we couldn't be happier! He completely exceeded our expectations and he has a natural gift of putting us (and our dog) at ease.

We cannot wait for him to shoot for our wedding in 2014!!!! More...

I chose Kerem to take our very first family photos on my son`s 8 month old birthday. I was really nervous to have pictures taken due to the unpredictability/ fussiness of our son. During our first meeting with Kerem he made me instantly comfortable with our situation. The day of the photo shoot (we picked the Descanso Gardens) Kerem was there waiting for us when we arrived. During the photo shoot Kerem put us all at ease so we were able to relax and he was able to capture very natural shots. I think my son even caught some of Kerem`s great energy because he did not fuss one bit during the shoot! When we were done Kerem said that we would have our photos within a week and he delivered as promised. The shots that Kerem got of our family are some of my most cherished images. I look forward to the next time we are able to work with Kerem. More...

I recently hired Kerem Hanci Photography to do my head shots.  I've had a difficult time in the past finding a good photographer that would work within my budget and provide me with pictures I could use in the acting world of Los Angeles.  There are hundreds (maybe thousands) of photographers to choose from and often times they are posing as "professionals".  I was SO SO SO happy to find Kerem!!!!  He was absolutely a "professional".  Not only is he a very nice person, he is exceptionally talented, easy to work with and provides a high quality product. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed which really made my head shots look like me.  I was most impressed with his attention to detail and professionalism.  I plan on using Kerem when I need to update my head shots and I highly recommend Kerem to anyone who's looking for the best photos in the industry!!!!!

Kerem was THE best wedding photographer and we are so fortunate to have found him. He moved around like a ninja, we barely noticed he was there and got the most beautiful and special wedding pictures. He has a very unique and beautiful eye for weddings and really captured the essence of who we are as people and our love. In addition, he is extremely professional, has great package prices, and is an absolute pleasure to work with. More...

Q&A

There are a few important things one should keep in mind in order to take a great photograph:
- first and foremost, the human connection: understanding and respecting my clients' wishes and needs are key
- attention to detail
- a passionate approach to photography. See my answer to what I like about my job to dive deeper into what I mean by passion.

What I would ask to my wedding client would defer from what I would ask to my corporate portraits client, however, in the core, I would like to find out what their expectations are from me as far as the end product is concerned. I would love to know their likes and dislikes, I would have two completely different approaches for an engaged couple who have a traditional style than for an engaged couple who are very laid back and totally obsessed with Star Wars (true story).

I absolutely love my job. I am very passionate about it. I have always been, even before I went professional, I was very passionate about photography. Making a living out of something one loves is an absolute blessing and I do not take it for granted.

I see my job as a legacy I would leave to all the wonderful people I meet through my work. A couple of years after photographing their wedding, one of my clients called me to have a session with her 4-month old son as a Father's Day surprise to her husband. When I walked in to their home, I saw all her wedding photographs, the ones that I took all over her walls, the book shelves etc. And, while I have always thought I understood what I was providing my clients was important, it hit me right there and then how my work is touching my clients' lives.

I love most about my job, the incredible privilege and honor I get from my clients who are trusting me with documenting their most cherish-able memories and making them eternal.

I always loved photography. When I realized I can make a living doing what I love, there was no turning back.

My wife and I provide a boutique service along with the back up of a few hand-picked, quality photographers on our roster.

Our turn-around times are way faster that the industry standard without compromising the quality as we are both hands-on and we do not outsource any of our post work.

We absolutely love what we do and our clients do not only feel they are our priority; they actually are our priority.
