My husband and I cannot say enough about studioQ. We both are not photogenic. But they were able to make us look like movie stars. I even heard a passerby say out loud, "I wonder if they are movie stars."

I decided to write this review because when comparing our wedding photos (by Kathy freundel from Maryland) to my engagement photos by Studio Q, we LOVE our engagement photos so much better. Not that our wedding photos were bad. It's just the quality of photography is excellent with studioQ.

In all the scenarios, the photographer was able to adjust his camera to the various light settings and also the style of photography was fresh and creative. There is not a picture we didn't love.

They gave us two settings (union station and Santa Monica pier) but we shot at over 5 different areas in union station, at least 4 places in the pier and 5 places on the beach. They were all artistically well done.

We paid 600 dollars for three hours but the photographer had so much fun with us that he spent more than 3 hours. We tipped him well.

My husband saw the wedding photos of two of his cousins and they did a fabulous job.

I cannot recommend them enough. Their website does not do them justice. I wasn't impressed by the photos on their website (unless it has changed since i last saw it in September 2010). But All my friends LOVE our engagement photos.

Fantastic fantastic fantastic! My husband and I cannot say enough about the quality of photos and professionalism we received from Studio Q, specifically from Jai and Paul (our lead photographer). I found this studio at the Bridal Expo at the LA Convention Center, and I was immediately impressed with how friendly Jai was and how helpful she was in answering my many questions. When I looked into their wedding packages, I knew I had found my photographers because they offered the best prices around and the most items in the package. We did our engagement session in Santa Barbara (my hometown), and Paul was very willing to drive up there without charging us anything extra. They actually studied at the Brooks Institute in SB, so they know all of the great places to shoot up there. We spent a few hours shooting at the Mission, beach, and a train depot, and Paul was so patient with us as we got comfortable posing for the camera.

On the day of the wedding, Paul had some great ideas, but he also listened to my suggestions which I appreciated. The photos turned out better than I expected, and countless people who have seen them told me they should be in a bridal magazine because they are that good. I am so glad I went with my gut and chose Studio Q over some of the bigger name studios I had researched!

Studio Q shot our engagement and wedding photos in May and August of 2008.
From our first visit to the completion of our album, it's been so pleasant to work with them.
Jai Shim, the director, helped us to plan and customize a package which was within our budget and included everything we wanted. She, and our photographers, Paul and Jin, were kind and professional. They always gave us their full attention. Jai graciously provided when we wanted to adjust our package or reschedule shooting dates and locations. They always had a positive attitude that left no question that they value our concerns and desires. We felt as though we were their sole customers!
They made us feel at home whenever we stopped in their office. We loved going in to look through their many photo albums, for their aesthetic value as well to study the different styles and approaches. In the office, and over the phone, they worked closely with us to advise us on pictures to choose for our album, and listened to our preferences for the layout of the pictures too!
In addition to their great service, their real quality lies where it should, in their photography. The pictures were classic and candid, timeless and emotional, up-close and narrative, in all the right times and places. The colors are rich and vivid, the focus alluring, and the content deep and provocative. Just see for yourself on their website, www.mystudioq.com , or in the photo albums on display in their office. Their work says it all.
My wife and I agree, �beautiful� describes it.
Their talent is broad enough that they can adjust their style to meet your taste. If you don�t know your style yet, they can help you figure it out.
The thing that we like most about our photos is that they tell a complete story of our wedding, from the minute details that we would not have noticed or appreciated, to the guests themselves. Every time we look at our pictures, we are so thankful to remember the support and affection of all our guests, and to feel again the love and commitment on our wedding day.
Out of appreciation for their consistent service and warmth, we even brought pastries into their office on several occasions. Paul and Gene�s friendliness and humor helped us to feel natural and comfortable in front of the camera, and Jai was so kind, patient and accommodating. It was a tremendous help to have a photography studio that genuinely cared.

In summary, we highly highly recommend Studio Q. If we had to do it all over again, we would choose Studio Q, no other options needed, no energy wasted.

Thanks for your consideration,
Charles and Hannah

I found them through the Los Angeles Bridal Expo. They were not pushy and had a great set-up. Two other girlfriends were getting married so we were trying to find a great deal if we all went with the same vendor. Studio Q appreciated the business was very cooperative.

For our engagement session i wanted to go to Catalina Island and that was not a norm for them but they did it anyways. Again they were easy to work with and we had a great time working with our photographer. Pictures where great.

For the wedding we had the same photographer (which was great) and he was so patient. I knew that he was going to capture my wedding at its best.

In the end the pictures turned out beautifully. It made me want to do it all over again to capture more moments.

My girlfriends loved their pictures too..

One thing is that they can get very busy and may have very limited space. You are flexible they can be too. The price is very reasonable and they really do work with your budget.

I will go back for family photos and definately recommend

They not only take amazing photos, but they are very professional and punctual. Also, they don't fumble around during the ceremony. You won't even know they're there for some of it. When you see the pictures, you'll say "Wow, I can't believe they caught that too!" Simply AMAZING!

This is a Korean American photographer that a friend of mine recommended me. I chose them because I liked their casual style and also because they were the least expensive and provided the most amount of pictures, photo setting, albums. I paid about $3,000 for 1 black and white album, 1 color album, 1 album from the wedding day, a large framed engagement photo that I used at wedding ceremony, 2 parent albums, lots of prints (can't remember how many but alot), plus 60 thank you cards. To get all the pictures they do an engagement photo session, a studio session, and a garden session, plus all the pictures on the wedding day. It's alot and to be honest we were so tired of it all we did our garden session after the wedding. But overall, we were very happy with the results.

The only negative is that on the day of the wedding they were not very proactive in helping to get everyone together for a family shot. The 2 guys that they sent were not fluent in English and no one at our wedding spoke Korean so maybe it was a language barrier.
