Q Photography did an awesome job with our family holiday photos! Kyu was able to squeeze us in to his schedule last minute and took wonderful journalistic and scenic photos of our family. He was really sweet with our toddler and offered her bubbles to keep her engaged which is a plus. Kyu sent us some teaser shots pretty quickly after our photoshoot and we were absolutely amazed how they turned out!! They were all wonderful and he captured our family so beautifully. We highly recommend Q Photography for all occasions! More...

We couldn’t have had a better experience! We have 3 kids btwn the ages of 3.5 yrs old and 2 months old so I knew it wouldn’t be easy to get a good picture! Kyu was great- he was fast and efficient and he already gave us some teasers and they turned out great!! I definitely will be using him in the future and highly recommend him More...

We are satisfied with the quality of the photos. The photographer knows how to relax us and tried his best to suggest many poses harmonized with the exterior environments. Overall, it was very a precious moment to take photos with him. I highly recommend this photographer. More...

We are so lucky to have found Kyu to take photos at our civil ceremony at the San Francisco City Hall as well as for our engagement photoshoot. His dedication and passion for photography shone through in every detail. Not only was he extremely easy to work with, he also went above and beyond to help us with props and scouting out locations for our engagement shoot. On top of that, he also found ways to engage our parents by giving them small disposal cameras to capture the day so they can join in the fun as well. We are completely blown away by the results of the wedding shoot and our parents are still talking about the gorgeous pictures that were taken to this day. If you need one photographer to capture your special day, don't go anywhere else, Kyu is your guy! Thank you again! More...

I had best experience with Kyu Kim as photographer at my daughter's first birthday party. He is super professional, knowing how to make babies laugh and also able to find photo spots within the environment. I'm pretty happy with the outcomes. Thanks again! More...

Kyu did a three-generation family photo shoot for us last week and we absolutely loved his work!  Kyu is a family friend who  started photography as a hobby and turned professional.  He is very talented and it shows through in his portfolio.  Kyu's approach of blending family portraits with candid moments was exactly what we were looking for.  There were 10 of us, including 4 children, so we gave him quite a challenge.  However, the shoot yield absolutely beautiful shots!  We will definitely treasure them! Kyu was easy to work with, in setting up the shoot, the day of the shoot, and when he delivered the images.  He was very responsive over text and email.  We will definitely reach out to Kyu again for future photography!

Amazing Wedding Photos!!!Kyu was able to capture our special day like a scene in a movie. All the pictures have great composition, colors and lighting. Every time we look back at the pictures, they brings back our special day like it was yesterday. Kyu doesn't pressure you into odd poses or weird scenarios. He makes the pictures look very natural and captures all the moments perfectly. If you have a special moment, Q Photography will bring out all the things that make it special. More...

Kyu saved my wedding!I originally had another photographer booked through a friend. After paying hundreds of dollars for a test session with the first photographer, I was devastated. My husband looked fine, but I looked stiff, unnatural, all my "smiles" looked like I was cringing. I felt very uncomfortable and awkward through the entire session and the result showed just that. I decided to cancel the first photographer. I was frantically looking for a replacement photographer and Kyu was able to take us at the last minute!There was no awkward moment with Kyu. He made both of us feel very comfortable. I didn't feel self conscious at all. We love the light, color and composition of the pictures. And the most of all, both my husband and I look like we are relaxed and having fun.The pictures consist of perfect ratio of glamourous shots, silly shots, natural shots and heart warming moments.One of my friend who came to my wedding liked my pictures so much, she booked Kyu for her anniversary pictures.Let Kyu capture your special day for you. You won't regret it! More...

My husband and I HIGHLY recommend Q Photography.We wanted to do something special to celebrate our 10th anniversary and the photo session we had with Kyu was quite the treat. We had divided our session into two, first getting pictures of just me and my husband then including our children for the second half. The whole session was effortless on our part. What might have been trivial moments became a treasure of a moment under Kyu's expertly captured photos.We have another family photo session scheduled with Q Photography and we're looking very much forward to it!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND Q PHTOGRAPHY!!!!! You have to understand that Kyu is not “just” a photographer. He truly is an incredible artist. He has a gift at documenting special moments from unique perspectives. He diligently uses light, shadow, reflections, and other elements to breathe life into every photo. I’ve never met a photographer who takes every single snap shot with his heart and soul. Kyu is definitely one of a kind! I’ve had the privileges of taking our family photo, pregnancy photo, and engagement photo with Kyu. He captured the happiest, most fun, perfect lights, and spectacular setting to make our photo session memorable. He is remarkably charming that he doesn’t make us feel like we are in a “photo session”. He made sure that we felt completely comfortable and we were just being ourselves having a good time. I have a little boy who is extremely camera shy. Most photographers had a tremendous difficult time taking photos of him (we ended up with many photos of his back or he was smiling extremely awkward). However, Kyu was able to capture the most natural and the happiest moments for him AND on top of that my little boy had a blast during the photo session with him. I am so forever grateful for Kyu because no other photographer was able to do that. It was the most epic family photo sessions we have ever had. This is an absolutely evident that he genuinely cares about the people that he takes photos for. If you are looking for a talented photographer/artist who takes breath taking photos by capturing beautiful memories in the most natural ways, Kyu is your man! More...

Amazing photographer. He creates beautiful compositions and captures those once in a lifetime moments with ease. The most impressive thing he did was make my wedding more special. He captured moments I never would have seen (as the groom, I had my schedule and places to be). All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you for making those memories timeless. I am forever grateful. More...

Q was our photographer for our daughter's dohl (1st birthday). He did an excellent job capturing unique moments and the overall event. Not only does he have a great eye, he was able to capture the story of our event in an artistic fashion through his photos. We spent a pretty penny on the decor and Q was able to beautifully capture all the aesthetic details in an elegant manner. All our photos looked fantastic! I even recommended him to other friends and would continue to recommend him to others! More...

I first noticed Q's photography when he took one of our mutual friends engagement picture and I was SO impressed. He did an amazing job with our family portraits as well and until this day we continue to get compliments on our portraits. He was very easy to work with and accommodating. I would definitely recommend him for any special moments you want to capture! You won't be disappointed! More...

Q&As

- What type of photography sessions are you looking for? Wedding, Engagement, Family portraits, baby portraits, etc.
- What is the timing of the session you are thinking of?

My name is Kyu Kim and I am currently based in San Jose, California.
I have been doing photography for ~15 years and started working wedding/engagement photos around 8 years ago.
I enjoy shooting with clients whether it's wedding, engagement, family, or babies. The aspect of collaboration and building relationship with the clients is very enticing for me.
My passion for the photography started in middle school after seeing Eddie Adams's Pulitzer Price winning shot of executing Viet Cong suspect. Not only it is a very powerful and disturbing image but it represents the real meaning of "capturing the moment".
I have lived in 3 different continents so far in my life. North America (USA), Asia (Korea), and Africa (Libya).
Before converting to full time photographer, I worked in high tech in Silicon Valley for ~20 years. The experience gave me a hands on understanding of the fast paced and intense nature of the high tech industry.
My passion in photography is boundless. I love taking pictures of pretty much anything and everything.
