Hi, I'm a portrait and wedding photographer based out of Knoxville, TN. I love what I do. I love the people I get to meet and I love the entire experience of being able to capture an amazing and important day in your life. The approach I take is to capture your day like a story with a beginning, middle, and end through interactions, actions, reactions, movement, and most importantly the emotions of your wedding.

Feel free to contact me. I'd love to know more about you and your special day. Read less

John was phenomenal. I picked John based upon the quality of his previous work and I definitely made the right decision. I decided I wanted to get to know my photographer before the big day, so we first did an engagement session with John almost a whole year before the wedding. He brought along his wife (she helps him with lighting and staging shots) and they, my now husband and I traipsed around Ijams Nature preserve near Knoxville on a Friday evening and honestly had a really fun time. Beyond that -when I got the pictures back I was reassured we had made the right decision.
The best part of John is that so many of my guests commented that he never was in their face, yet he seemed to be everywhere and that really shows in the pictures. The stills of the wedding party, my husband and I, and the decor are stunning but the best part of his work is the phenomenal candid pictures he captured of our family and friends. I just uploaded my pictures to Facebook but I'm pretty sure all of my friends are about to use these photo's for new profile pictures. He captured the fun, the joy, and the love of the night so well ......and I am truly overjoyed that I have all of these wonderful candid memories captured forever. Additionally- I like that he only provides the pictures digitally so I can order as many or as few pictures as I want rather than having a limited number you can select to have printed. Finally- John is just a nice guy and easy to work with. My dad just kept commenting how much he liked him- which is a very good sign.
Thank you John!

John did such an incredible job on our wedding photos! He is extremely creative, easy to work with and always answered our questions. He's laid-back, flexible and very eager to help with whatever he can. On the wedding day, he was so much fun and we were thrilled to have him.

John was by far my favorite wedding vendor! We are from Chicago and got married in Gatlinburg, TN. Planning a destination wedding proved to be much more difficult that I thought it would be. But, I felt comfortable with John at the first conversation. He's extremely down to earth and easy to work with. He was always quick and thorough in our email conversations. When we first started talking, he had never shot a wedding in Gatlinburg before. He took it upon himself to go out there and scope out photo locations for us. He did such an amazing job. You only have one chance to capture the pictures at your wedding, and ours are FANTASTIC! We seriously couldn't be happier.

John was great! He was easy to work with, prompt, flexible, and professional. The value is great because you do not need to purchase all your wedding prints through him. He supplied a few great pictures right after the wedding and we recieved the rest of the pictures in just over a month. I know couples who wait 6 months to get wedding photos back! He does a great job and has an eye for a good picture. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!

John was a wonderful photographer. He was extremely approachable, fun and laid back, and captured the entire day without interfering. I truly enjoyed working with him and his wife. My pictures are more than I could ask for, especially considering his unique eye for pictures that are a good spread of traditional to very unique pictures that are not cliche.

I would recommend him to any bride, especially those who want something a little more artistic and unique!

John Shim is a master when it comes to beautiful photography. He catches the light, scenery and the quality of his work is excellent. My daughter looked like a princess and photos that he took could be put into a fashion wedding magazine. Promptness to the ceremony; his approach to settings; and, overall care taken with each pose was very professional, whether casual or staged. I would recommend John Shim for any occasion. He is thorough, competitively priced and the finished product is for a lifetime. We are so happy that he could accommodate our daughter's special day.

John Shim was absolutely wonderful to work with! Not only were his photographs breathtaking but he was extremely professional and punctual. John prepared for me a minute by minute schedule of what photographs we were going to take at which times. This allowed us to seamlessly move through the day without rushing around. There was never a doubt that John and his wife Young had everything under control! I would recommend using this fabulous photographer again and again! Because of John Shim, I have gorgeous photographs to remember our big day for a lifetime to come!
