Joey was absolutely amazing! He had an assistant on the day (Kevin) who was equally as professional and their ability to direct and relax people was unbelievable. They really exceeded all my expectations and the reviews you have read about how good he is really are true!! I honestly cannot recommend Joey any higher or convey how brilliant he really is! Engagement photos were stunning and my wedding preview photos had me in tears of joy! Every aspect of the wedding day was captured from the intimate moments to the more formal photos in perfect timing. I was blown away with his professionalism and how relaxed he made myself and my husband feel!! 10/10... I Would recommend Joey as Number 1 on your list for photography without a doubt. Absolutely brilliant.

I just saw some of our photos on his blog yesterday and the photos look amazing! Joey is very professional but also tries to make it fun, and works with you to make sure you get the photos you want. He has a good eye for shots, and premium cameras and lenses to make sure he captures your day perfectly.

Joey Ikemoto Photography's team is hands down the best in the South Bay. Joey was great in the planning process and getting all the details down for the day of our wedding. Sam and Kevin were AMAZING to work with on our special day. We had toddlers to grandparents and everything in between. They were very patient and dedicated to getting the perfect picture. I could not have asked for a better photography team for our wedding!

It was such a pleasure to work with Joey & his staff. Very upbeat & enthusiastic! Gorgeous photos everywhere we had time to take pictures at on the Queen Mary. Perfect lighting! I wish I could've remembered to ask that photos be taken of out guests at the tables towards the beginning of dinner but all venders did need time to eat as well. The album selections is perfect & we love both our engagement & wedding photos that Joey Ikemoto's photography studio blessed us with. With all of our odd requests to include during the cerimony, reception & around the ship, Joey made sure we got it all. Thank you so much for such a beautiful wedding day/night.

During the planning phase of my wedding I knew that photography quality would be something I would not compromise on. It was difficult selecting photographers as well because I planned my wedding from Texas. The entire process of working with Joey and his team was seamless. From the engagement photo session, the planning phase, to the wedding day, the staff was very accommodating and professional. On the day of the wedding, I worked with Sam and his associate and they were awesome! Sam put us all at ease instantly. They got both amazing shots that look like ads out of a magazine as well as some pretty colorful candid ones of me and my family and friends having way too much fun at the reception. I’ve gotten so many compliments on our wedding pictures! I just received my album and it is beautifully done. I’m really glad I didn’t compromise on quality on my wedding photos. I would highly recommend Joey and his team to capture your special day.

This photography company is absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Every employee was very helpful, friendly and professional. it's obvious they have been in the business a long time because they knew exactly how to make me feel happy to celebrate, happy to plan and happy to do business with them. Sam and his associate were my photographers and they made my wedding day even more wonderful than I had hoped. They were on time and very friendly. They made me and my bridal party very comfortable and within five minutes we were all friends, laughing, celebrating, enjoying each others company, and it seemed as if they just so happened to be taking pictures at the time. I just got to see my pictures and I'm so happy with them. Sam got some great shots and everything came out just beautiful. Sam is very talented at what he does. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Where do I start commenting how wonderful Joey made our wedding photography experience? He is such a nice and down to earth guy for the level of experience/ talent/ end product he and his staff possess and produces. This is one professional i gladly recommend with enthusiasm. His work is truly amazing.

From the beginning, Joey was exceptionally professional. Joey is so very organized, his listening to what the customer wants, and communication of what is feasible to available time was impeccable. By Joey's sit-down sessions, me and my wife saw our wedding day unfolding and planned a beautiful, realistic, and flexible shot schedule that more than accommodated what we envisioned for us and our colorful family.

Joey's calm, but driving demeanor allowed for such wonderful shots of me and my bride's colorful family without being the least bit snooty, obtrusive, or being demanding. He definitely knew how to spotlight my beautiful bride on her wedding day, which made me ecstatic. We never knew Joey and his assistant was there until the major shots.

I don't think we have ANYTHING bad to say about Joey Ikemoto Photography. Throughout the year and a half planning process we had for the wedding, I immediately became a huge fan of this photographer! And after booking, I constantly went to the website to look through slideshows of their recent weddings just to ogle the beauty of their shots. I absolutely melt when I look at their photography. And the studio is beautiful if you get a chance to visit. They are extremely friendly and experienced artists. Our slide show is up, but we can't wait to see the lot of the pictures.

I VERY MUCH RECOMMEND JOEY IKEMOTO!!!

I LOVE my pictures!! I have nothing bad to say about the day at all. The photographers were very professional and everything turned out beautiful! Because we were operating on a budget, we didn't opt for the package with Joey Ikemoto but rather had one of his associate photographers (Sam Sean) do our wedding. I've gotten so many complements on my wedding pictures and I would totally recommend Joey Ikemoto Photography!

Joey is a well-known photographer in the South Bay. He is professional, yet has a great sense or humor that gets the best smile from you and your guests! We couldn't wait to get our proofs back - Everyone looked relaxed, happy/excited... All of the emotions you would expect on your wedding day are captured. Our photo album is original and my entire family loves it! Joey also did our engagement session for us - my husband and I felt that Joey truly captured us in those 100s of pictures that he took!

My husband and I chose Joey Ikemoto Photography to do our wedding photos at Wayfarers Chapel and the reception dinner at Terranea Resort. We had Sam the day of our wedding and he was amazing! So flexible, completely fun to work with and he took amazing photos to boot! The entire process from going to their office to explain what we wanted before the wedding down to picking the photos and doing the retouching for our album...it was all top notch and done quickly and with a smile. Their prices are fantastic and they go above and beyond what's necessary. Pictures are everything for a wedding and the people at Joey Ikemoto, especially Sam and Tracy, made it a joy. It was everything I hoped for and more. Thank you for making our day so perfect!

He was everywhere. He let us know when he arrived and he asked us when we'd like him to leave. When I wanted a picture I would call his name and he was always nearby. He directed the wedding when it needed direction and stayed out of the way when it was directing itself. The only time during the evening when I couldn't find him was when he had told me that he's scouting for a nice photo op outside of the venue and he came back immediately to gather us for it.
