kim le photography
Where do I even begin???
Even before meeting Kim, I had followed her blog and knew she was the one we wanted to photograph our Big Day.
From our initial meeting, we knew we just HAD to have her! It was important for us to work with vendors who not only did great work, but who were personable, yet professional. Kim not only fit our "requirements," but definitely exceeded them.
After we got the open dates for our reception venue, we contacted her right away. We initially set a date with her, but had to change it a few times and Kim was so great about it. We felt horrible for so much back and forth, but Kim took it with ease.
We absolutely loved our engagement pics and although we haven't seen all our wedding day pics just yet, I'm positive we'll love those just as much! Our wedding party kept commenting on her professionalism, never rude or demanding, but getting the job done efficiently and oh-so politely. At one point during the day, I (the bride) was getting cranky--I was tired, hungry and a bit impatient waing for the next group of guests to gather and Kim asked if I was okay. I felt a little bad because it wasn't anyone's fault, but just by that simple question made me feel like she was looking out for me.
Kim, you're AMAZING and we couldn't be happier/ luckier that we'll have your pictures to always remember our special day! Thank you SO much for everything!!!
From the very start of out wedding planning journey, I knew our photographer would be the most important vendor we hired. I peered through many blogs, read countless reviews, and met with quite a few photographers in person. No one impressed my fiance and I more than Kim Le. Her professionalism, sweet nature, and sheer talent were like no other. From the day we booked her, we knew we were in the BEST hands. She always responded to e-mails in a very timely manner, with genuine suggestions when I asked her for opinions or recommendations. When it was time to take our engagement pictures, I shared my vision with Kim and she came up with the perfect itinerary to capture what I had in mind. I was nervous about the shoot, as my fiance and I are not models by any means, but we had such a wonderful time. And WOW- Kim somehow managed to make us look like models! On the day of our wedding, Kim brought along a wonderful second shooter (Jason Huang), and did a perfect job of capturing our wedding day. She even had no trouble dealing with our large and very demanding family. We have only gotten a glimpse of our wedding pictures so far- but everyone, including us, has been blown away (or moved to tears) with what they've seen so far. So- consider this review a full and unreserved endorsement for Kim Le. She is the best, and will do an amazing job capturing the most memorable day of your life. Kim, if you are reading this, we are so grateful!!!
Skillful, talented, comfortable, creative, sweet, flexible, accommodating...the list can go on as to Kim Le's attributes as a photographer and vendor. Before I was even engaged, I stumbled across Kim Le's work and was immediately impressed. Shortly after my husband proposed, Kim Le was one of the first major vendors I booked! I was not about to let this great catch of a photographer slip through my fingers...and I probably would've lost her as a photographer had I not acted that early because she quickly became booked up for 2010!
Before our engagement shoot, I took Kim Le up on a boudoir shoot. I'm so glad I did this because it gave me an idea as to how great Kim is to work with. I was so nervous about the shoot because I was so self conscious about how I looked in the outfits. Moreover, I'm not a model so I of course did not know how to pose! Turns out, my fears were for naught. While clicking away on her camera, Kim Le talked me into a comfort zone while she simultaneously posed me. I ended up having a lot more fun than I anticipated.
The engagement shoot was an even bigger blast. Kim Le accommodated my husband and me and shot us at all of the locations we requested. I was worried that my husband would not be comfortable and natural posing in front of a total stranger. Again, my fears were for naught. My husband and I ended up having so much fun with Kim Le and her second shooter! She made both of us feel comfortable in acting silly, serious, and loving all in front of a camera.
I LOVE the fact that she regularly updates her blog. There are plenty of photographers out there who update once in a blue moon. In my humble opinion, this is how vendors lose a potential client's interest. More importantly, though, is her professionalism; the girl embodies it! I've befriended a few other photographers on facebook and twitter, and it is such a turn off when these vendors gripe about potential clients they meet. Word to the wise - you really should keep that to yourself. Never put that kind of thing in writing. Kim Le, however, does not do this. She handles all matters in a tactful and professional way.
The best part: she captures the moment when she's photographing. Take a visit to her blog and you'll see what I mean. She has the uncanny ability to capture the moment, bringing the viewer back in time as if they are reliving the moment. That's talent!
We had the ultimate pleasure of having Kim shoot our engagement session and our wedding day! Our engagement photos turned out to be just fabulous and the wedding teaser photos we've just seen today were equally GORGEOUS! She not only captures the little details that tends to be overlooked but you feel as if you are part of the event when you see the photos! You can truly feel the emotion of each shot as if you were part of it.
Kim makes you feel so comfortable and at ease! I felt so "at home" with her that I decided to let her shoot my boudoir session (a wedding gift for my husband). She did such a beautiful job (trust me)!!!
She doesn't make you feel like you have to "pose" all the time. The little tender moments I had with my husband and my family were captured without making us feel as if someone was watching us. She's very professional but at the same time, very warm and sweet! She's open to ideas but has a treasure of suggestions! She's so talented and as you will see, her work speaks for itself!
We've been getting A LOT of "oohs" and "ahhs" when people see our pictures. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!!
Kim-- if you are reading this, you are absolutely THE BEST!! Thank you again for sharing (and capturing) our special day!
Kim was the second shooter at my wedding, and I actually did a little happy dance when I found out a few days in advance. :)
She did an amazing job on all fronts--professionalism, picture taking and delivering an amazing final product. She was also very friendly and on any other occasion where I had less to think about, I'm pretty sure I would have embarrassed myself by gluing myself to her side. Nice people make me want to do things like that!
The photos she took were beautiful. Even after months of sporadic blog stalking and knowing how talented she is, I was still impressed when I saw the final product. It was such an all-around blessing to have her be a part of our team of vendors.
Kim Le was my engagement & wedding photog. She's very sweet, talented & flexible. She braved 105 degree heat to take our engagement photos - which came out great! She worked her magic once again with our wedding photos. They are awesome! The photos came out amazing! She captured the day perfectly. I highly reccomend her!!!
Kim Le was very personable, comforting an easy going. We had an unfortunate incident happen on our first session but Kim was very compensatingeven though it was not her fault. She gave us a total of three hours coverage and was very accomdating to my specific requests.
The previews came out great! I'm so excited to see all of the pictures!
I highly recommend Kim Le!
A+! I had originally only hired Kim Le to shoot our Rehearsal and our Rehearsal Dinner. I was more than pleased when she offered to be a second shooter at our wedding. I cannot explain how wonderful it is to work with Kim Le. She made us all feel comfortable and was so fun to work with!
The photos that she took for us speak for themselves. Her creativity added the touch that made the photos outstanding!
I highly recommend Kim Le! You will not be disappointed.
