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...

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.

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 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 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...

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.

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.

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...

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.

He was very professional and kept making sure things were moving. He was also a fun guy to talk to.
