If we had to choose a wedding photographer all over again, we would go with Studio Soo. My husband and I live in California, and our wedding was in Chicago. I did not get a chance to do a lot of research, but my mom informed me about Studio Soo Photography. I asked her for the website, because I wanted to see sample pictures. I was blown away by the pictures. We met Soohyun and Lee on the of our wedding, and they were very professional and made everyone feel at ease :) We loved the atmosphere. We received the sneak peek preview photos and all of our wedding photos in a timely manner. Soo captured candid moments at our wedding, the genuine emotions that we can treasure forever. Soo takes AMAZING photos!!! Thank you!!!! Love Sarah & Jaekun More...

My friend and I went to Studio Soo for a friendship photos. Before going there, a crew of Studio Soo let us know the direction to go there very kindly. When we entered the studio, we felt very cozy and good atmosphere. The photographer made us to feel free for taking pictures and background and lights were perfect for photo shoot. We also got nice printed pictures. We were really satisfied all process and photos finally we got. I highly recommend Studio Soo for special photos!! More...

Our family had a family photoshoot and our son's first birthday shoot here and it was a wonderful experience! Their studio has the cutest background themes. They also provide outfits for kids, so I didn't really have to prepare much. I received out canvas and artboard box along with other prints yesterday and they came out so good, my husband and I were super satisfied :) we'll definitely be back in the future! More...

I had my son's 2nd birthday photos taken in the studio, and I have to say it was such a great experience. I was so impressed with the choices of different background set-ups (no fake backdrop posters) and the available outfits for my son. Also, the friendliness and professionalism of the photographers was excellent. I never knew my son could actually sit still and smile at the camera until now. They did a great job of capturing natural smiles and poses, and my son had so much fun during the session. The photo qualities were great. The only negative comment I have is regarding the lack of parking space on a weekday. More...

From the decorations to the studio landscape, the quality of Chicagobaby Photo Studio was modern and fancy. The quality of these pictures were stunning, and the people behind the cameras were even better. They responded to our every request without fail, working dilegently to make sure every photo was perfect. It was the perfect way to capture our son's frst birthday and will be a memory we won't forget. More...

We were lucky enough to win a free engagement shoot with Soo. He has the most amazing studio but I really wanted an outdoor location as I love the Chicago architecture. He was more than happy to oblige. He took the most amazing shot of us outside the Art Institute. Truly breathtaking. He choose other great locations also including the Cultural Center. All in all it was a wonderful experience and both Soo and his wife made us feel very relaxed as neither of us are very comfortable in front of the camera. I cannot wait to book him for my 2020 wedding. More...

We needed headshots and group shots taken for our website and advertisements for our company, and Soo made the experience so easy. He knew exactly what types of shots to get, and was extremely receptive to different types of photos that we asked to take. He also took a lot of care in directing us to make the photos look as great as they could be. We would definitely recommend Soo for any of your photo needs. More...

Chicago Baby Studio took my newborn pictures and they did a beautiful job. They were very accommodating with scheduling the time and not feeling too rushed during the appointment. Their studio is beautiful and had so many back drops and props that were modern and a lot of variety. My newborn was especially fussy during the shoot- she wouldn’t sleep for a second, but they made me feel relaxed and not to worry. They also had a private space for me to breastfeed and feel comfortable which was especially nice for this nursing mama! They did accommodate our request to take a few family group shots with my 2 year old toddler and husband and those turned out great as well!Finally, I received the edited photos and that process was very easy. I like that they give you the option of which photos you want edited and then which will go into the beautiful album! Highly recommend!!! More...

Studio Soo Chicago Baby was amazing! It was the best photo studio experience I've ever had! My family and I needed a photo for our Christmas card, and Soo and his wife were pure genius in find exactly the right settings and poses for us. They were very easygoing and attentive to our needs, and at the same time were able to give helpful advice and even precise directions to us to make it the best photo possible. Even the slight suggestion, "tilt your head slightly" or "put your hand here" made all the difference. After choosing our favorite shots, Soo did the editing and touch up to make it even better! I have always been skeptical of spending the money on a professional photographer when we can always just take a selfie. I'm thoroughly convinced now that it's well worth the effort and expense. I wish we had known Soo when our son was younger and we were taking a million baby pictures. Or better yet, I wish he were our wedding photographer. To this day my wife and I regret the photographer we used, and we'll never get a second chance to take those pictures again. If you want absolute confidence that your wedding pictures will be stellar, Soo is the man. More...

Fabulous wedding experience with Soo and his Saehee! From A to z, they took care about my engagement and wedding photos. They really are professionals! Soo and Saehee provided comfortable atmosphere all the time, so my husband and I were able to pose and smile as we normally do. We took our engagement picture at Soo’s studio, it was clean and very neat; also, they had various photo props. (Saehee always brought something I love.) If they didn’t help us, our wedding album would be full of extreme awkward faces. On the wedding day, they captured even small, but important details and scenes. I am thankful that I can memorize and look back the best day of my life. Strongly commend to work with them! I would definitely come back for my newborn. :-) More...

Your number one Studio to go to, is Chicago Baby. Soo and his wife work very well together and provide an incredible experience. They will give you input and direction when taking the pictures. Also, they have a variety of clothing and accessories that you can utilize to dress up your baby. The studio have the most adorable sets for pictures. Our baby was getting a bit fussy, but they were patient and we took breaks when needed. The pictures they captured are beautiful and breathtaking. There isn't a need to look any further, book your session today. More...

Definitely the best of the best studio in Chicago! The place you don't wanna miss out!My family has taken pictures of my son in many other places. However, we were not able to get any good results because he didn't enjoy those experiences. In this place, my son loved and enjoyed taking pictures very much. Soo and Saehee know how to amuse him which I believe because they're also parents of two sons. Of course, they are professional without a doubt. I am very thankful for awesome pictures of my family, and we will visit this place again! More...

My session with Soo was very at ease and quick/efficient (in a good way).

My family with two kids (4 and 7 years) visited Chicago for a weekend.  Birthday for my 7 year old.  Soo met us and did an excellent job.  We were not able to get into the studio but he made the most of outdoor photos.  Lighting was great.  He was really good with kids and could tell he had kids himself as he could get my kids to focus - something I am not able to do.  Would recommend with a hesitation.   I will book him again next time I am in Chicago and need a photographer.

It was almost a year ago to take my son's 1st birthday party and birthday photos. They did a amazing job! It was an unforgettable moment and they took every moments of baby's unexpected movements. At the beginning my son could not focus on the camera, but he looked to be very happy to take the photo shoot around 10 minutes later. They made the environment very warm and happy. We could enjoy the time with my son. Also have various styles clothes for baby and kids. We brought our own clothes, but we didn't use ours. Theirs were better for photo. The backgrounds were also adorable. When we received the frame and album, it's good quality and happy to see it again and again. Almost every month we have kept opening the album and remembering the moment. I highly recommend this studio. You will not regret your choice at all. Visit the studio and see what you can get.

This review is a bit overdue but no less true! I received a recommendation for Studio Soo from a friend who had her daughters 1 year old photos done by Soo.
I called Soo to discuss a newborn shoot for my son who was already 6 weeks (a little old for the newborn shoot) and he gave me the wonderful suggestion of waiting for the first smile to happen and then to schedule so that we would get more personality captured in our photos. He was right on with this suggestion and I am so glad we waited several more weeks.
Our photos are stunning!! We love every single shot and to be honest it was so hard to narrow down which ones we wanted in our final package because they were all simply wonderful. Everyone that has seen our photos is blown away by the quality of the images and the beautiful backdrops.
Now let me tell you, I was nervous as we waited for the initial first look at the photos because my son was cranky and sleepy through most of our hour, but Soo worked his magic and literally captured the sweetest moments. He is truly talented.
Soo was professional throughout, giving us good direction and suggestions of what would look good. In total we did four different backdrops and a family photo. We were given extremely fair pricing for all that we purchased and it is safe to say we now have a family photographer that we will be using again and again!
Thank you Studio Soo!!!

I recently got married and Chicago Baby Photo Studio did my photography for my engagement, wedding photoshoot AND my pictures on my actual wedding day. Vivienne is awesome and passionate. She is willing to take her time to get a really good and satisfying pictures for you. I'm happy with all of my wedding pictures and its usually pretty hard to be satisfied with your wedding pictures unless it's really wonderful like mine :) You can probably check out my photos that she posted on the facebook page. She has creative ideas and makes pictures look really neat and presentable. SO happy I got my wedding photography done with Chicago Baby Photo Studio! Yay! More...

His wife was a very kind person her role was a very important who made my baby laughing all the time while taking photos. Me and my wife are very pleased with the photos and will have a very difficult time picking our favorites. I will definitely recommend his services to my friend and work mate.f I am so glad we finally found a photographer for our kids for the near future! More...

My wife and I passed this place all the time but never looked it up until our second was born. When he was old enough to get family photos we decided to give it a shot and we are very glad that we did! The studio is excellent, with multiple backgrounds in each room, plentiful props to pose the kids with, and natural light throughout. Soo and his wife were friendly and professional throughout the process and during the shoot, and we are very pleased with the results. The edited photos look fantastic, the frames and prints are sharper than what you'd get through shutterfly, and he provides the digitals for additional printing wherever you'd like. I definitely feel like the package we got was good value and I would recommend this place to anyone. More...

Soohyun photographed special moments of our son’s first birthday both at the studio and at his birthday party. Our son was walking well by 12 months and absolutely could not sit still for the photos, but Soo managed to catch hundreds of beautiful shots despite him moving constantly. He and his wife were also gentle with our son and were able to get his attention without being overwhelming. The studio is a small space but has many backdrops and props, so the photos don't get boring. We are happy with the quality and variety of our photos.


Soo replies emails promptly and is thorough in answering questions. We had quite a lot of comments when it came to editing the photos, but he was patient in emailing back and forth to accommodate our requests. He also worked with us to come up with a reasonable price. Overall, we had a pleasant experience working with him.

Soo and his wife are incredible! I highly recommend.

They took the time to really think through our venue and the lighting.

And even when our venue and photography location had to change last minute (due to rain) - they were flexible and SUPER capable of thinking on their feet.

The pictures turned our better than I or my husband could have ever imagined!

Soo and Saehee does an amazing job taking of me. They are so talented and really knows how to work with people. I had such a wonderful experience. Not only were the photographs themselves just incredible, but the studio space is so neat and wonderful. They also had lots of dresses and Korean traditional dresses for kids and adults, also a cute set of table which has candles, cakes and other ornaments and decorations especially for the first birthday party for a baby, that they can use for the photoshoots. I am so grateful for them helping ensure that this was such a heartwarming and fun time. This whole experience has greatly exceeded my expectations and I could not be any happier with how things went. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! More...

We wanted to get a some good pictures of our newborn and having experienced places like picture people, we were hoping for something more than just some basic pictures from a DSLR in front of a backdrop.

We got a great recommendation for Soo from a friend who did a newborn shoot with them, and needless to say i couldn't be happier with our baby's photo shoot.

first of all, you will like Soo before he takes a single photo, just by talking to him over the phone. he is very courteous and easy to work with. he was very understanding of our work schedules and definitely made the scheduling process a breeze.

secondly, on the day of the shoot, he welcomed us to his studio and gave us a tour. showed us all the nice back drops he has created for newborn shoots, and they all look like a lot of care has been put in to designing them. and he has quite a handful of backdrops you can choose from.

3rd - ultimately the person who really decides how its going to go is your baby. but Soo was very patient and understanding towards the needs of our baby.

4th - just a couple of days after the shoot, the pictures were made available to us to select and they all looked really good. now i'm not in to photography, but i can tell a great looking picture when i see one. a friend who is more knowledgeable of the topic saw them and said who ever took these photos really knew what they were doing, specifically got the lighting to a tee!

5th - we took a long time to actually select the photos we want edited, and again he was very accomodating and just 2 days after we selected the photos, he got back to us with the edited photos.

Overall i'm very happy and Soo provided a great service by every standard.

Soohyun is an Amazing photographer! He and his wife were a delight to work with. They were great with our kids and very professional. They took the time with my kids to get the perfect image. There's no need to bring outfits or props as he has everything in house at his studio. My family and I are over the moon with the photos! He had the full shoot uploaded and beautifully edited within 2weeks. With studio soo, you get a copy right release as well making it easy to print as many photos as you'd like. I'm Highly impressed with his work and professionalism and recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer that will make sure to get the perfect shot. Soohyun is very creative and clearly takes pride in his work. I can't express how incredibly pleased we are with our photos and the overall experience. More...

Soohyun photographed special moments of our son’s first birthday both at the studio and at his birthday party. Our son was walking well by 12 months and absolutely could not sit still for the photos, but Soo managed to catch hundreds of beautiful shots despite him moving constantly. He and his wife were also gentle with our son and were able to get his attention without being overwhelming. The studio is a small space but has many backdrops and props, so the photos don't get boring. We are happy with the quality and variety of our photos.

Soo replies emails promptly and is thorough in answering questions. We had quite a lot of comments when it came to editing the photos, but he was patient in emailing back and forth to accommodate our requests. He also worked with us to come up with a reasonable price. Overall, we had a pleasant experience working with him.

I was in a pinch to find a photographer at the last minute and stumbled across Studio Soo, and I am so happy I did. I appreciated the flexibility Soo offered to fit in the late appointment, but it was Soo’s post photography work that really impressed me. He culled down hundreds of shots into a select few and offered key editing options. He sent pictures of “before” and “after” changes to get my opinion on the changes, was extremely responsive to any edit requests I had, and delivered the end product on time. In the end, there were very few, somewhat subtly changes to Soo’s original shots. And the end product looks great! I’d definitely recommend Studio Soo. More...

We hired Soohyun to photograph my parents' anniversary party. His photography is very high-quality; we are very pleased with the pictures. Soohyun was detailed-orientated and a pleasure to deal with from first contact through planning and meeting, the event and after. I asked him to make sure my mom looks good since she is often not happy with photos. This is the first batch of photos she has ever liked so he achieved the impossible. All the stars!! More...

Don't pay attention to the 1-star review. If you look at Janice L's account, she gives everybody 1-star. Another chronically unhappy person whom I doubt you could please. Some people 1-star nonstop for sport. Soo does a wonderful job and pays close attention to detail. Stunning quality and beautiful papers. Good job Soo. It's nice to have your talent in the community.

We had our family portrait session for my father in -law's 60th birthday here. The place was cozy and nice and had different backgrounds for different photo shoots(so many cute things especially for baby portraits). We had a great experience! our whole family enjoyed the photo shoot. Also he was very friendly, professional, and responsive to our text and calls during the whole process. Most importantly, we love our photo result! Glad we chose Studio Soo to take our family portrait. Definitely coming back for sure! Thank you for the great service! More...

As a former page designer, I am really picky about photography. As a mom, I want the absolute best photos of my kids. Soo absolutely delivered. He came to the location we requested, recommended the best time for good lighting, and the pictures came back stunning. Also, my kids felt comfortable with him. He was creative and thorough. I have already started recommending him to my friends. More...

Soo was kind enough to meet us at an outdoor location of our choice. He had some great ideas as far as the background and composition of the photos--I certainly wouldn't have thought of such creative ideas. I'm glad he was there to guide us through the family photoshoot. We were so thankful when we saw the photos of our family and children. The prints will make great gifts for grandparents, and it will be nice to finally get some family photos on our walls. We would use his services again. More...

I will definitely recommend his services to my friend and work mate.f I am so glad we finally found a photographer for our kids for the near future! More...

Q&A

Photographer should have passion and genuine interest in the subject.

What matters in your life? What do you love the most?

Creating the beautiful images that can tell stories about people's love and life

The value of photography; preserving precious memories and creating united feeling.

We are Saehee Lee and Soohyun Kim, and we have been married since 2009 and blessed with two sons of our own. We know firsthand the joys and challenges of building a family, and just how meaningful beautiful photos were taken at different stages of life can be. At Studio Soo Chicago Baby, we strive to provide your family with images and portraits that you can treasure for years. We recognize that families come from all walks of life and that no family is exactly the same as another. Our goal is to give you an experience at our studio that is unique and personal, just like your family.

We especially believe that children have a special place within the family structure. As they journey into life, their family is there every step of the way, to guide and nurture them. We believe in capturing the innocence and beauty that each newborn has as they begin their life, and celebrations such as a newborn’s 100th day since birth or a first birthday are moments that deserve to be cherished.
