Incorporating his own vision into the technical elements of photography, Kenny’s goal with each photo he takes is to present each moment he captures with a subtle artistry that enhances the feel of the moment. With the launch of Kenny Kim Photography in 2006, his vision instantly resonated with his audience, and Kenny Kim Photography very quickly grew into a nationally recognized studio. Kenny has shot over 100 weddings in locations throughout the United States, Mexico, the Caribbean and in Italy. His clients include various local and national celebrities such as Yul Kwon (winner of Survivor a popular CBS TV Series) and Salma Hayek (Commissioned as the second shooter by international celebrity photographer Bob Davis). He has also been contracted to photograph the University of Illinois sporting team events and various celebrity events featuring David Foster, Andrea Bocelli, John Legend, Three Doors Down, Chris Tomlin, and Michael W. Smith.
Kenny’s work has been featured in numerous publication including Destination Weddings & Honeymoon, The Knot, The KoreAm Journal, WIND Magazine & more. He is a platinum list member in highly acclaimed Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine. He is also an active member of WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International) and has recently received special honors in the WPPI 2010 Awards of Excellence 16x20 International Print Competition. He has been voted by The Knot Magazine in 2010 as the Best of Weddings in photography.
Kenny is also the author of “Digital Wedding Photographer’s Planner” - a comprehensive book for wedding photographers to help them plan for and execute a successful wedding day shoot. Published by Wiley Press and available online & in all bookstores.
