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.

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!

I searched high and low for the perfect photographer for our wedding, and after taking even a quick peek at John's website and Facebook (in addition to his work that was featured on the venue's website) I knew that John Shim just HAD to photograph our wedding.
From our very first email, to the final moments of the night of our event, John was professional, attentive, and overall just... plain... awesome! Then I got the photos back!!! Simply, undeniably, amazing. He has a knack for catching the perfect moment, in the perfect light, and in the most unobtrusive way imaginable. He and his wife are a wonderful team, who were even able to make my camera-shy hubby comfortable.
If you're in the market for photographer for your wedding, engagement, bridal portraits, look no further!

I was searching for photographer for our engagement and wedding photoshoot. I myself does photography as a hobby so I was a little picky. Also I didn't want our photos to be cliche like coming out of a factory line. John Shim was exactly what I was looking for. I like how his photos are story-telling, with good composition and artistic feeling as well. He certainly has photographer's eyes. We had a very small and intimate wedding and John did more than what we asked for with very nice price. Highly recommended!

John Shim is a wonderful photographer! His pictures are beautiful and he is great to work with. I could not have asked for a better photographer. He did everything that I requested and he was so much fun. He is very creative and flexible. He makes the most of every opportunity and I highly recommend him to anyone that is getting married. He and his wife will feel like part of the family by the end of your big day. I am so glad that I chose John to photograph my wedding, it was one of the best decisions that I made throughout the wedding planning process.

When I started looking for a photographer, all I saw were ridiculous prices for very generic looking photos. Then I found John Shim Photography and was so excited. John Shim Photography did a wonderful job as my wedding photographer! I couldn't be more happy with how my photographs turned out. Beyond his photography skills, John was really easy to work with. He was very responsive to any questions or concerns I had, especially since my wedding wasn't in Knoxville. He arrived on time and didn't leave until the party was over and made sure I got all the photos I requested. I would highly recommend him to anyone who's looking for a skilled photographer with a unique style.

John and Michelle did a fantastic job at our wedding! John was extremely professional and responsive through email, and made the effort to get to know us a little before the wedding to help with the shooting. He was very agreeable and flexible, and contributed his own photo ideas while entertaining ours. I'm the least photogenic person ever (my eyes are always closed, or mid-blink, or mid-talk in pictures), but John managed to get some really good pictures of us anyway! We chose him because he had so many creative and funky shots in his portfolio (and was the only one within our budget whose work looked so cool), and we were not disappointed. There was a nice mix of traditional pretty shots, unusual angle shots, candid shots, etc. John was very organized and sent us a shooting schedule before the wedding and tried hard to stick to it the day of, which was helpful to us. Also, and very importantly for us, he didn't hold our prints hostage like some photographers do - you get digital copies of all the photos in high resolution. John and Michelle were both really nice and a pleasure to work with - I'd highly recommend them to anyone for their wedding!

John did a fantastic job on our wedding and engagement photos. Highly recommend him. He's not the kind of photographer that will get in the way of the ceremony or tell you how to do things. He's flexible with whatever you want and does a great job of capturing the moments before, during, and after the wedding. We couldn't have been happier. Also, he does very quick service in getting your pictures back to you after the big day... not months later like most other photographers. Hire this guy!

I was very pleased with John Shim's work. I think he took excellent pictures and definitely has an artistic eye. I was impressed because he took the time to talk to us before our wedding to make sure that he knew what we wanted. He did a great job at both our engagement and our wedding pictures. There were one or two pictures I wish he had gotten at the wedding (ie: the back of my dress walking down the aisle, a family pic or two I didn't think about), but he got almost everything you could think of and took beautiful pictures. He's definitely dedicated since he sat in the middle of our dance floor to get great shots (even though I'm pretty sure I elbowed him twice). Most importantly, his work is good value. I looked for a long time to find a "budget friendly" photographer who is as skilled as John, and they do not exist. His pictures are worth the money!

During the shoots, he is great at giving direction or suggestions, but he is also open to trying new things and listening to your vision for the photos. He is excellent at capturing moments that other photographers may let pass unnoticed - a tear, a laugh, or crazy dance moves. The flow of our pictures truly tells the story of our day, and every time I look at them, I relive all those moments. I highly recommend John Shim Photography. Quality pictures and great customer service.

John made our wedding day feel very relaxed. He ws professional and helpful with our time line. For all the pre wedding photo shoots he was very flexible. Throughout the whole process he was very organized and easy to work with. Most of all the qality of John's work is untouched in comparison to the other photographers we looked at. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a photographer for any occasion.

John Shim captured so many moments for us that were terrific to relive and see from another person’s point of view both for our engagement session as well as for the wedding day. John is excellent at capturing everything from a moment’s beauty to a friend’s humor – you can really feel the emotions in John’s photos and that’s makes them powerful and wonderful all at once. He is extremely easy to work with and works very hard for his clients. You can tell he gives it his all. We'd strongly recommend him and would love to work with John again in the future for another special event or milestone.

John made my wedding day. He made us very comfortable, not awkward, was very professional, took great pictures, and responded quickly to our questions. He was very flexible. He knew how to organize us (me and my husband, as well as our families) and take charge when my family wouldn't stop talking :). He is also very patient and didn't freak out, even when I did. He is used to dealing with brides and has a calming demeanor.

As I look back through my album (which I do very often) I remember our wedding day just as I hoped it would turn out. No matter what look or style you're going for with your wedding, John is able to convey is so very well. I highly recommend John.

The best decision we made for our wedding day was John Shim. What an amazing talent and awesome personality to work with. On such a monumental day, we knew we didn’t want to have to worry about how our pictures were going to turn out. After all, this was the most important aspect of our wedding, our memories. His work is breathtaking & exquisite. We knew that we could confide in him 110% to exceed our expectations for our wedding pictures. There is no price point on memories and John is worth every bit of it. From our engagement pictures to wedding, we will always be so thankful for John’s hard work and amazing talent. We sing John’s praises to everyone around us. There is only one photographer recommendation and he is John Shim.

The quality of our photos is incredible. I still can't stop looking at them. Everyday I seem to find a new favorite. There were times when Mr. Shim got busy and was unable to communicate with us, but overall we were very pleased.
