I am a wedding photojournalist. I capture the story of your wedding day. There is always a place for some portraits of the bride and groom and their friends and family, but as much as possible I try to blend into the background and capture the beauty of each wedding as it unfolds, from the details to the moments you never want to forget. My photography is natural, emotional, and real. I believe the "Life makes the most beautiful art." (TM)

Your choice in a wedding photographer is very important. It is a relationship that will impact your entire wedding day. For this reason, I am careful to choose weddings based primarily on the relationship I begin to form with the bride, groom, and their families from the first moment we meet throughout the interview process. I only accept two weddings each month so that I can devote the time and energy to each one that they require. I cover each wedding rehearsal which is a great opportunity for me to meet your family and friends and begin building a relationship that will help everyone to relax and be themselves as I photograph your wedding day. I often spend 18 hours with my brides and their families over the course of the wedding weekend. This enables me to capture the entire story of your journey through this momentous event.

I often return images to brides within the first few weeks after their wedding which they can view and share through an online gallery. Then I work with the bride and groom to select images for Fine Art books, Fine Art cards, and beautiful wall and table-top image collections. Your package will include one set of 25 custom Fine Art cards and a DVD of all the original images from your wedding weekend shown in your online gallery. These image can be loaded into a digital frame, uploaded to your Facebook or similar web sites, or used to make prints up to 8x10 size. Larger prints and other items such as books and cards are ordered through the studio. All studio prints are completely retouched and custom detailed.

I would love to speak with you personally about your wedding plans. Please contact me for availability. Read less

The photos Kira took of our wedding captured invaluable moments that have already begun to slip from my memory as the days pass. Looking at the photos a week after the wedding was great fun, but it was reviewing them a few months after the wedding that I realized how impeccable her timing and keen her eye. I feel very lucky to have these frozen moments captured for a lifetime of remembrance of one of the most sacred days of our lives.

We can't say enough about how great Kira was to work with! She has an uncanny ability to capture people's best moments without them knowing. The pictures are gorgeous and we can't wait to see the finished book. We would recommend Kira for any wedding or special event!

Kira is an amazing photographer!! She was really organized, reliable, detail oriented and flexible to our needs/ideas. She was extremely approachable and quick to respond to emails (I was planning my wedding from Minnesota). I was completely at ease with Kira. When we saw our proofs, I just about died - I can't tell you how difficult it was to choose our favorite pictures. She was able to capture emotion and candids. We ordered one of her photo books- beautiful & highly recommended!

My husband Paul and I can't say enough good things about Kira. She truly exceeded all our expectations.
She was so professional, kind and patient. Kira was unobtrusive while was photographing us.
Our final pictures are just amazing. Kira is not only a photographer but an artist as well.
We highly recommend her to anyone interested in having photojournalistic wedding pictures.

I came across Kira Kwon by a chance viewing of her work on display at my favorite local restaurant while getting carryout. What luck, I went home checked out her work on her website and immediately called the following day and set up a date to meet. Kira's work is fantastic, I had thousands of photos to choose from, not just of my husband and myself but of everyone, wedding party and guests alike. I was able to give prints to aunts and uncles of their children and wedding party attendants and their significant others of themselves. Kira is wonderful at capturing events in the moment and uses her expertise to fade out backgrounds and make individuals pop in pictures. Not only does Kira have "the eye" for great photos, but she is a real trooper, her reasonably priced package we chose included engagement photos, her covering the rehersal and rehersal dinner and the wedding day itself, she was with me the day of my wedding from 9a.m. to 9p.m. I couldn't have asked for more. I have been in wedding where the photographer was very brash and demanding and the photos were just photos, with Kira you get a great and fun attitude and photos that look like art.

The photography was excellent. As the bride, the aspect I enjoyed the most was the feeling that no aspect of the wedding day was missed. Kira Kwon made sure that she was around for every major moment throughout the evening and then some. At the same time, she blended into the background so that guests were not really aware they were being photographed. On top of the wedding day festivities Kira Kwon was there to take photos of the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, which also proved to be just as memorable as the wedding day. If you are looking for high quality photography, I highly recommend Kira Kwon. I am beyond pleased with our wedding photos and am thrilled with the amount of the wedding day captured on film!

Kira did an amazing job with our wedding photography. It rained on our wedding day, but Kira was able to find great spots inside the hotel where we got ready. Our pictures turned out beautifully, and she was able to capture all of our emotions on our big day.
