Wedding: 08/10/19Location: Redondo Beach Guest Count: 250Postive feedback:-Lily is amazing! She is always available and helps you with your wedding timeline if needed.-Her quality is beyond. I looked at serval other photographers and no one can match her quality-She poses you and makes you feel comfortable on camera. -If you are on the fence on this investment, please believe me it is worth it. The pictures she delivers are memories for life.-Our wedding was on 08/10/19 and she provided several sneak peeks, only two days after. We really appreciated that!-For ceremony purposes and bridal party pictures, we recommend you do the 2 photographer option so that there is enough coverage and more pictures can be taken faster. Room for improvement:-none! she was great! More...

This review is long overdue but totally necessary! I booked Lily as soon as I was engaged to my now husband. I reached out to her because I loved her beautiful style, her fun personality, and she was a local in my neighborhood. On the initial meeting, I knew she was the one! She was super down to earth, friendly, and extremely helpful. She was completely professional in her communication and always kept us up to date during the process. I absolutely loved that about her because wedding planning is stressful enough! Ok--Now let me start off by saying that she did an absolutely stunning job on our engagement pictures!! She brought my vision to life--romance and adventure. Now, what's more adventurous than driving to the sand dunes in the middle of a heat wave (I swear it was over 100 degrees!)? We spent the entire day there capturing all the shots and poses that I wanted. Ok--and now come the pictures. THEY WERE GORGEOUS. She captured the most amazing pictures I could ever imagine. My husband and I could not stop raving about them and I'm sure all my friends on social media were completely sick of me (HA but that's ok). I've received so many compliments on them from friends, family, and even strangers! Next came our wedding pictures. Lily once again captured all my favorite moments--from preparation pictures, to family portraits, to romantics, and the reception. ALL WERE PHENOMENAL. We made the best decision picking Lily as our wedding photographer. I can't wait to continue to book her for future events (perhaps future newborn shoots ). Anyways, book Lily with confidence. She will bring your vision to life and you won't regret it. More...

Lily makes you feel beautiful and her smile and laugh are absolutely contagious. She was sweet and accommodating throughout our entire process from engagement photos to the day of the wedding. Lily is a down to earth, real person who is willing to help in any way she can to make sure that your photos turn out.The only real downside -- I did go with a second photographer, but I felt that her photos and methods did not compare to Lily's which left me without some key shots that I wish I had known to ask for (but had assumed she would have snapped).

Really enjoyed working with Joe and his team ! Our wedding was on a summer day in July in Newport. The team was so professional and energetic. They were able to capture all our special moments and also the venue's beautiful scenery with the drone. We had them edit a few things on the short video and they were super nice and responsive about it. And the finished video was amazing! We would definitely recommend Joe and his team ! More...

I booked with Lily after meeting with her and my finance for coffee. Her personality is warm, friendly and driven. I originally was not going to do an engagement shoot, however it was included with the package I picked. I am so happy we did the engagement as it gave us time to practice and get comfortable with a formal shoot. Day of the wedding Lily and her assistant kept us on time, did a great job and I have the memories forever. More...

We couldn't have been happier with our photographer. It's obvious that wedding photography is Joe Kim's passion. He really gave it his all. Having not taken professional photos before, we were worried we'd feel and look awkward but Joe made the entire experience so much fun and helped us loosen up and get creative. He flew up to San Francisco two times for our engagement shoot and on the day of. We did our engagement shoot at Lands End and he even squeezed in taking some beautiful pictures at Bernal Heights. On our wedding day, he helped keep us on schedule and just felt a part of our wedding party. He took amazing pictures of us at Deer Park Villa in Fairfax and during our cocktail hour, we snuck away and took some pictures in the mountains of near Mt. Tam. He stayed until the very end when we took send off pictures with sparklers. If you need a photographer, Joe is your guy!! Any time we need professional photographs, we'll be going to him! More...

I can't even begin to tell you how blown away I was with my engagement and wedding photos. Lily made my husband and I feel completely at ease even though I'm not the most comfortable when taking photos. She went above and beyond to make sure I got the best photos from my special day, I literally spent hours looking at my weddding photos and falling in love with my wedding day all over. More...

I met Lily when we both attended a photography workshop that was hosted by another veteran photographer. Lily's hyped and bubbly personality immediately made us close. I saw how Lily work during the workshop; dedicated and focused. I believe those are the two top qualities you want to look for as a photographer. As an amateur photographer myself, I look up to her for guidance since she was very knowledgeable in the Photo Industry. I saw her how she worked with our model couples and was impressed by it. After the workshop we ended up keeping in touch. Fast forward to almost 9months later, me and my Fiance needed a last minute engagement photoshoot. Lily was the first person who came up to my mind. I already know how she works, and her style was also the style me and my fiance are both looking for. I immediately contacted her and she responded in a timely manner, she made sure what me and Fiance wanted and she gave us options where to shoot our engagement photos.We ended up taking her suggestion to have our photoshoot in  LA Art District. The day of the shoot came and all I can say was that it was terrific! Me and my Fiance felt really comfortable with her. She was approachable, funny, energetic, and thinks outside of the box. I also like that her style is more geared towards "natural lighting" versus crazy mad edited photos we see on social media nowadays. My favorite part of the photoshoot (aside from her being talented and creative) was she took time and sat with us to get to know us better. I believe that is an important factor when working with your clients, get to know them!I highly recommend Lily to be your Photographer whether be it an engagement photoshoot,  wedding, family photos, portrait etc. She is amazing and delivers high quality photos! You won't regret! More...

"This wedding video is beyond beautiful...I felt like I just watched a movie...got me all teary-eyed...omg left me in tears...So romantic...best wedding video I've ever seen...so perfect...absolutely beautiful...Amazing vows...this melted my heart...so magical..." These were the comments left by friends.
My husband and I couldn't have chosen the perfect cinematographer to be a part of our special day! From meeting him to the final product with Joe, we had confidence in his work. He's quick in response via email, worked with us in all elements to producing the dream wedding video we had envisioned. On the day of, he and his team were professional creating scenes/ moments that felt so natural. They weren't "in your face" or "getting in the way," it was seamless. We didn't want the typical wedding video, we envision something beyond that. And Joe Kim delivered! As you can tell from the comments from our friends, it perfectly showcased how we saw our wedding day.
I'm really loving his photographer work as well. I have a feeling this won't be the last time I hire JoeKim Studio to create everlasting moments for us. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you, Joe!

We first saw Joe's work through our family and immediately loved his work. We decided to use him for our engagement session and wedding day. Joe was always available and easy to get a hold of whenever we needed. He was very friendly and easy going during our engagement session and made sure we were always comfortable.

Our wedding day was a big hectic but Joe handled everything with such calmness and grace. We had an extremely big wedding party and guest list and Joe was able to capture everyone and every moment without getting overwhelmed. Our pictures were PERFECT and so gorgeous! Joe is very creative and he was very good at directing us and the people around us to get the perfect shot. Something I really liked was that I never felt like he was in the way of us, our guest, and was just able to capture the wedding exactly how we wanted it. I also really liked that he did their research on our venues to get the best shots. I highly recommend Joe for any occasion! Overall we enjoyed our experience with him. He is very professional and creative and you won’t be disappointed with his work!

I can't even begin to explain how happy we were to find Joe Kim Studios! We are a Canadian couple who were married in Palm Springs this summer and Joe was phenomenal in communicating with us via email, arranging an engagement session that worked within our short time-frame and producing the best pictures ever! On the day of, Joe was the perfect blend of relaxed and directive enough to get what we wanted. He (and his second shooter) made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera, which was quite the accomplishment for us and I have heard nothing but glowing comments about our photos. Joe's style was a perfect match for us (light, airy, relaxed) and he has a way of capturing this feeling regardless of the surroundings. I would recommend Joe without hesitation; in fact, I wish we had another excuse to hire him for ourselves! More...

So many wonderful things to say about Lily! I first hired her for my maternity photo shoot in 2016 and then a year later for my daughters first birthday/cake smash pictures. My maternity shoot was amazing, Lily made sure the entire experience was one to remember. Her energy and enthusiasm is so contagious. I loved every minute of it, even the hike back up to the street was memorable, she held my hand all the way up and made sure I didn't fall, she even asked if I needed water. She was so attentive and made the entire experience unforgettable. Now, the pictures...I mean,I felt beautiful and whatever the day of the shoot but when I saw the pictures, I was blown away. Like why am I not a model Just kidding, but seriously, they where amazing. My daughters pictures where nothing less than expected. Again, she was amazing and made sure my baby girl got all the attention she deserved. Lily was super patient with her despite all the crying and whining. The pictures where great and I cannot wait to have her take our next family pictures. Thank you Lily, not just for such great pictures but for connecting with your customers and making sure we enjoy the session. More...

We had the pleasure of having Lily document our engagement and wedding and she won us over in every way!  Since then she's been there for our maternity pictures, our precious baby, and we hope to have her take pictures for us again soon.  She has a great eye and awesome ideas, very professional and accommodating.  She also has a quick turnaround time, and we get so excited every time our pictures are ready to see the magic, beauty, and intimacy she has the uncanny ability to capture!

We first saw Joe's work through a friend and his work was just amazing. We decided to use him for our engagement session and big day. We couldn't be any happier with our choice. Joe is an easy going guy and with his personality it really helped us be ourselves in front of the camera.

Our pictures were gorgeous, he captured every single moment in such a great way. When he says he's a natural light photographer, he sure is. Even though it rained on our wedding day he still managed to capture beautiful photos. We received so many great compliments on our wedding album. I highly recommend Joe, very professional and on top of his work.

I LOVE Lily and her work! She is just amazing! Looking for a photographer and deciding on one can always be a little nerve wrecking or even scary. But I am so glad we chose Lily to do both our engagement session back in May of 2016 and our wedding photographer in June of 2017. She definitely makes sure you feel relaxed in front of the camera. She has an attitude of "let's have a ton of fun" while we do this, but also keeps everyone professional. And I love that about her. She doesn't make you feel akward or embarrassed in front of the camera she definitely makes sure everyone is comfortable and is having a good time. Her positive attitude is contagious! Thank you Lily for the awesome pictures. More...
