Whether I am photographing an intimate moment in a garden or 200 guests dancing at a wedding, I am passionate about capturing life as art. After all, moments are elusive and parties come to an end, but great pictures last a lifetime.

I specialize in photo-documentary weddings in New York, New Jersey, and destination worldwide. After graduating from the Corcoran College of Art in 2001, I moved to New York City and apprenticed with some of the city's top wedding studios and documentary photographers. I established my own business in 2003 and have photographed hundreds of weddings, from small family affairs to grand country club bashes. Visit my website at www.kyomorishima.com to get a full sense of my style.

I look forward to hearing from you! Read less

From the very beginning working with Kyo Morishima Photography was wonderful. My husband and I felt so comfortable upon meeting them and we loved the fact that they, like us are a couple of two different nationalities, they were able to embrace and understand what exactly would be happening on the day of our wedding. Janna was so responsive and helpful with any and all questions we had before, during and after our wedding. And Kyo's laid back demeanor made us feel calm, relaxed and confident that on the day of our wedding, there would be absolutely no stress and that he would be able to capture the list of photos we wanted as well as all the candid moments we were so desperate to catch. And he did just that on the day of our wedding, he was able to capture all the right moments and even the ones we didn't know we 'needed'. Looking at our photos now, it is a perfect timeline of our day. We love them ALL!
We hope that in the future we will be able to work with him again!

Kyo (and his wonderful wife, Janna) were absolutely amazing! Our venue recommended several photography companies in the area, and after meeting with a few, we knew that Kyo was right for us. He did a fantastic job capturing not only the family portraits we wanted, but also had a wonderful sense for taking candid photos at exactly the right moments, and in a way that captured everyone's personality perfectly. He and Janna were so responsive to all of our questions and were flexible about day-of logistics, which is a huge help to busy brides! I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I used Kyo for both my engagement and wedding pictures and he is absolutely amazing!! He and his wife Janna work together to create a wonderful package for you, including a guest book and album. Working with Kyo and Janna was an absolute pleasure because they are so friendly, responsive, and accommodating to your requests.

Kyo is also probably the coolest person ever. He is not simply a photographer but also an artist. The way he captures light, color, and people in pictures is absolutely indescribable. Looking through his photos will show you how great his work is. Not only that, but Kyo will brave freezing cold weather and wind in Central Park if that is where you want your photos!

Overall, fantastic to work with and the photos are worth every penny. Highly highly recommend!

We received a recommendation for Kyo from some good friends and had him photograph our NYC wedding in December 2012. Overall it was a great experience. We were delighted with the pictures, which captured beautiful informal shots of our families and friends, as well as a lovely romantic series of pictures of us at and right after the ceremony. Kyo has a very gentle, unobtrusive style, so we didn't feel like we spent the whole day with a camera lens in our faces, and yet he captured every important moment. He prepared very carefully, walking through the schedule of the day with us and visiting the venues beforehand to decide how to work with the light for our winter event. We felt very comfortable with him and his assistant.

Kyo's love of NYC and photo-journalistic style worked well for us as we didn't want a lot of posed, formal shots: if you do want more traditional pictures, this may not be the best place for you. Since it's a small studio and they are pretty busy, it sometimes took a while to get in touch, but overall the service was very good and both Kyo and his wife are charming to deal with.

We were happy with the price of our package compared to some of the frankly exorbitant vendors out there - Kyo and an assistant covered the whole event and gave us electronic copies of the images for $2k (we did not go for a formal album etc, which would have been much more), while our guests can buy images from the online gallery. This worked great for us.

We were very happy with the whole experience and would definitely use Kyo again or recommend him to others.

The greatest part about Kyo is that you can tell right away that he LOVES & LIVES photography. From the moment I contacted him he was more than excited to photograph our wedding. It was such a pleasure to know someone was just as excited as us to share in this special day.

Kyo has this ability to catch moments in time that nobody else sees. As I looked through my wedding photographs, they actually brought tears to my eyes. Every moment, photographed perfectly to convey the emotion at that time. I could not be happier with my photos; they are everything I dreamed of and more!

Janna, Kyo’s wife & partner is fantastic, she designed our thank you cards and I have gotten so many compliments about how gorgeous and unique they were. I’m currently working on my album with her and I cannot wait to see the finished product!

I can’t say enough great things about the both of them. They were FABULOUS and I can not wait to work with them again.

I keep describing Kyo as a magician for his uncanny ability to catch precious split-second moments on film. We are truly thrilled with his work. And Janna does a great job of packaging the photos. He was very familiar with our NJ venue and had a great relationship with the on-site coordinator, so we could not have asked for a better experience.

consummate professionals and SO wonderful to work with!

Kyo has such an eye for capturing the moment and everyone's unique personalities! He is such a great artist and despite his amazing talent, there is no ego here. He is stress free and fun to work with, not pushy at all- a master at his craft! Kyo and his team make it all seem effortless blending in with the party, getting all the shots and moments the busy bride and groom may have missed. Wow, they pay attention and capture all the details! We couldn't be happier with the results.

And Janna, his wife and partner in crime, is behind the scenes making sure all the details are covered. She so responsive, helpful and also very talented composing the albums. Great team and as I said, HIGHLY recommend!

My wife and I hired Kyo Morishima for our wedding photography, and it was the best decision we made in planning the event. He is an extremely talented photographer, with a unique skill for capturing moments and emotions. Every shot is unique and interesting in its own way, capturing some beautiful detail, or framed in an unexpected way. Kyo is certainly an artist.

To top it off, Kyo and his team are highly professional, flexible, and easy to work with. We feel like we got an incredible deal for getting such fine work at such a reasonable price.

Kyo was amazing. I have not seen all my pictures yet, but he was so great throughout the day and we chose him because of his unique and photojournalistic approach to photography. We did not even know he was there the day of our wedding (very non intrusive) but I can say with confidence that he captured our whole day. We saw just a few shots so far and they are AMAZING!

His wife Janna who I met on our initial meeting is charming and answered all my e mails in a timely and professional manner. I am really looking forward to putting together our wedding album and seeing all the shots.
