Excellent & very pleasant experience with Studio SOMA.
Photographer ( Mr. Kwon) is highly professional. His work is great.
He knows how to work with people. Me and my husband had a great time taking wedding pictures even we both don't like taking pictures.
His humor & professionalism made our wedding day the best of the best.
We just got married last week & our pictures are already posted on his blog. WOW~~
I would recommend Studio SOMA/ Mr. Kwon for your photographer for any occasions.
Thank you Mr. Kwon for your hard work.
You will definitely see us again for our next occasion.
From your newly married couple

studio SOMA and Do was great to work with--he was professional, polite, and even came early to take extra pictures! I'd definitely work with him again!
Amazing experience with SOMA! Planning a wedding is always stressful, but this was very pleasant. Added speacial touches that had the guest in awe. Open to new ideas and always comes prepared with great ideas.
I hired Soma Studio for my son's 1st birthday party, which is a pretty big deal for (some) Koreans for cultural reasons. In fact, I ended up spending almost as much money for the event as I did for my own wedding.
Obviously, photography is a critical service, as photos are the only permanent things after the big day, as memory fades, and I am thrilled that the photos taken by Soma Studio came out as well as they did.
The service I chose included studio shots, actual party photos, and outdoor shots after the event. Our photographer Mr. Kwon is a natural with babies, as well as being a pro with exacting standards. In fact, we actually had 2 studio session because he was unhappy with the range of color schemes from the original shoots. Mr. Kwon also produced some beautiful photos at the birthday party, despite horrendous lighting at the venue we chose. The outdoors shots came out very vivid and real as well, and he was veyr generous and flexible with his time for each shoots.
Mr. Kwon is masterful at post-processing, and I am very impressed with the final product, as well as the overall experience.
Studio SOMA, Especially Do, did a FANTASTIC job shooting my wedding! He was so much fun and the bridal party had a blast with him!!!! He was so easy to deal with and knew what he was doing. His pictures were absolutely beautiful and the album was beyond what I could have imagined. He truly captured all of the special moments and gave me the ability to keep these memories forever. Even when we were running late and the day started getting a little crazy, Do just rolled with the punches and was still able to get great shots. He was so accommodating and stayed a little later than he should of so that we did not miss getting pictures and video of the cake cutting ceremony and tossing of the bouquet. I would recommend Studio SOMA and Do to anyone who wants to have a great photographer who keeps the mood light, and pictures beautiful!!
Horrible!!! I had a contract with Wedding Group One and Do (Dowe) from Studio Soma bought the business. I saw him for the first time on my wedding day and was introduced to him. After my wedding day I have sent e-mails and left messages regarding my albums and video. I only received an auto-reply through e-mail. After a very long time I had left a message that if I did not receive a phone call back I will contact the news…..all of a sudden I received a phone call from Do (Dowe). He said that he was never paid for my wedding and I told him that is not my problem…that is his and I had paid around 5K for the package. He told me he had to see if he even had my stuff. He found it, but did not have my contract. I scanned it and e-mail him the contract. Just until recently he sent me by e-mail the pictures of the album. He told me that he will send me the album….I told him it is more than 1 album…his response was “Well, I don’t have your contract”. I told him I sent it many years ago and I will forward him that e-mail I sent him a while ago. He is also giving me excuses of why my video is not complete. After I told him I am sending him the contract again…I e-mailed and texted him (which he has responded by text many time) regarding the status of my wedding albums and video and have not heard from him for over a month. It is funny that he asked me to write something nice on this website about his company before he completed my albums and videos.
