We believe that God has a plan for everything.

He planned for the bride and groom to cross paths and eventually meet to join as one to spend their lifetime together in happiness, health, and even in suffering. God presented to us the talent of photography, and through that talent, we try to capture those special beginning moments on the wedding day, reflecting happiness, joy, romance, and the start of something new through the lens of our cameras. Those cherished moments, we trust, you will look back upon in, maybe, another twenty years. Our goal is to be able to not only take pictures of those remarkable moments, but to also capture the essence of laughter, family love, and the feeling of exhilaration. With our cameras in hand, we promise you photos that you will cherish for forever and a day.

To achieve a satisfying style of wedding photographs, we try to attain good communication and trustful understanding with the bride and groom. Since people have different tastes and personalities, we are aware that we need to accommodate our experience between candid, documentary and editorial portrait to suit that of the couple.

Experienced teamwork with co-photographers is very important to capture the different angles of a wedding event. We usually work in threes or fours, creating a team of photographers who can and have worked skillfully together.

We try to capture the various feelings of a wedding ceremony - such as joy, excitement, nervousness, courage, blessing, etc. We hope that by photographing the celebratory spirit of two people and their families joining together, they can look back at those captured memories and smile at the thoughts of their special journey.

I chose Dai as the main photographer on my wedding day and he was my point of contact. His style is artistic and he has fun shots, but nothing too goofy unless you request it yourself. He was very flexible with regards to the schedule and was nice about postponing bridal party shots when a lot of my relatives decided they wanted pictures with us after the ceremony. He and the second photographer were nice enough to take pictures that my relatives requested for them with his camera and their own.

I gave him only 3/5 for responsiveness because it takes him a while to respond to emails and there were a couple times that I had to contact him again to make sure he received a previous email. However, when we said that we would like some pictures to show at a reception 2 weeks later, Dai did a great job of editing some photos and sending them to us ASAP.

I LOVE HIS WORK!!!!!!
Choosing a right photographer is an important factor for a Wedding.
I had reviewed over 20 photographers for my Wedding and Kevin Lee's work stood out from the rest of them. Kevin applies lighting techniques to Wedding Photography that’s different from others.
My Wedding was back in December 2013 and I couldn't be happier with the outcome.
Kevin is kind, patient and very dedicated in getting great shots, even under difficult circumstances.
I have friends who recently got married and they regret not knowing Kevin earlier.
I highly recommend Kevin Lee as a Wedding photographer. Best in the business in my opinion.
Thank you Kevin for giving us such cherished images and capturing our special day!

I am an event planner. I don't think I've worked with a better photography team, ever. They were very professional. The main photographers bring their own team with them, so you have at least three photographers the entire day of your wedding. Watching the photos they took, I could tell that they will turn out amazing! I also noticed that the bride and groom did not seem put off by the amount of time they had to spend with them; meaning, they were very efficient.

I would recommend Kevin Lee Studio to anyone who asks!

We got married a month ago and much of the day’s success can be attributed to Kevin Lee photography. Mr. Lee and his staff exhibit the upmost professionalism, kindness, and consideration. Honestly, you will be hard pressed to find a better photographer in Southern California, and arguably in the entire state.
- Engagement picture session – Mr. Lee and his staff shot our engagement pictures in five different locations throughout southern California. He was patient, never expressed an ounce of annoyance, and was fun to work with. He used the engagement shoot to teach us several poses that he would later use on our wedding day. It was incredibly helpful as we were foreign to the world of photography. His coaching and advice helped us feel more secure on our big day.
- Wedding – Our big day entailed a separate photo shoot at 4 different locations due to time constraints at our venues. Our schedule, to say the least, was complicated and stressful. To top that, we had a bridal party of 24 individuals and ~300 guests. With that many locations, that many people, that many details, we knew this was going to be a tough feat to accomplish. However, Mr. Lee and his staff captured our love moments at all locations flawlessly and were actually early to all locations. They were able to round up our massive bridal party and enormous family and capture our big day without a hiccup and they simply personify professionalism.
- Work Product – Our engagement & wedding pictures have been lauded by our family and friends. Honestly words don’t do his work justice. You can view his website and view his work for yourself. We adamantly believe his work speaks for itself. We simply had an amazing and lovely day – a day full of memories that will last a lifetime.
Mr. Lee should be trusted for your big event. Honestly, Kevin Lee Studio is not only the best valued, but also the best photography we have experienced and seen.
Thank you Kevin Lee for making our dream come true

Kevin Lee was one of the best vendor choices I made for my wedding planning process. He was so courteous and respectful, very caring and made us feel totally comfortable.
Kevin was very good about responding to e-mails and text messages, which surprisingly not all vendors were good about and turned out to be a big frustration in other situations. Kevin was really easy going and listened to our suggestions/requests. But because he's been doing this for such a long time.. most of the time it's just better that you listen to his suggestions. He knows what he's doing.
Our engagement photos came out really nicely. Kevin went above and beyond and spent extra time with us. We received so many compliments.
One of the reasons we chose Kevin was because he was a good balance between the traditional Korean photographer and a 2nd generation photographer. And I don't mean that in the sense of language speaking ability. The type of images adults/parents want are not creative at all, but rather stiff and composed. But that's what makes them happy, I found out. Our generation (although it varies widely) enjoy the vintage look, photojournalism, high fashion, etc. Kevin Lee is able to do a wide variety of styles. I do regret a little bit that we couldn't get in more photos from the wedding that would please our parents.
All in all we are both very happy with our photos from both the engagement and the wedding. And we have referred many of our friends already to Kevin.

Kevin Lee and his team were awesome!

We had our engagement session and wedding day photography done by Kevin Lee.

We had a lot of fun during our engagement session. Kevin Lee is so caring he even brought us drinks and some snacks to make sure we don't get too hungry. Per Kevin, "Usually, when the groom gets hungry, he refuses to cooperate." That is so true! Kevin took the time to visit our venue as he had never been there before so that he could get a better idea on how to plan the wedding day. Our venue was about 1.5 hours from where his office is and he didn't mind the drive.

On our wedding day, Kevin came along with 3 other photographers. Relatives and Friends were so surprised that we had so many photographers. They were all very professional and was dressed all in black. Kevin took artistic, creative shots. I plan to have them blown up poster size to hang up on our walls as they look like paintings.

We can't wait to see our album once its all done!

I highly recommend Kevin Lee Studios!

Kevin and his staff were phenomenal. My wife Amy and I felt so comfortable during both the engagement photo shoot as well as the wedding.

The great thing is that Kevin actually went above and beyond. He brought his whole staff and extra photographers to our wedding, when we had expected just Kevin. Even during our engagement photo shoot, he brought us some baked goods to give us the energy to take more amazing pictures.

It's clear that his work is flawless, and the images pop out like magazine pictures. We highly recommend AngelDV to anyone, and will make sure all of our friends and family use his services.

Photography was very important to us, so we researched a lot of photographers. There were lots of great candidates, but here's why Kevin stood out.

Quality: There are many photographers who are self-taught these days, which is awesome, but Kevin stood out to us because not only are his photos amazing, but he majored in photography in college. He not only has a great eye, but he understands the physics and science behind the art, and that gives him an edge over many others. Looking at our photos, it's amazing to see the different angles/lighting. He truly sees the world differently.

Dedication: Kevin really went above and beyond for us. He ended up dedicating an entire day for our engagement shoot, and the photos came out beautifully. On our wedding day, Kevin and his staff came an hour earlier than expected and stayed longer.

Personality: Kevin is polite, friendly, and really makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. We can be pretty awkward in front of a camera, but Kevin made us laugh and feel at ease.

Bottom line: You need to book this guy. I loved all my vendors, but Kevin was probably my favorite.
