Kenny Kim has always been fascinated by the visual arts, especially the connection between art and photography. This passion led him to study graphic design at the University of Illinois where he also became a skilled Web designer. In 2003, Kenny opened his own design studio, and it was during this time he realized that the greatest outlet for his artistic expression and technical skills would be through his passion for photography.
Incorporating his own vision into the technical elements of photography, Kenny's goal with each photo he takes is to present each moment he captures with a subtle artistry that enhances the feel of the moment. With the launch of Kenny Kim Photography in 2006, his vision instantly resonated with his audience, and Kenny Kim Photography quickly grew into a nationally recognized studio. Kenny has shot over 100 weddings in locations throughout the United States, Mexico, and the Caribbean and in Italy. His clients include various local and national celebrities as Yul Kwon (winner of popular CBS TV series - Survivor) and Salma Hayek (Commissioned as the second shooter by international celebrity photographer Bob Davis). He has photographed various celebrity events featuring David Foster, Andrea Bocelli, John Legend, Three Doors Down, Chris Tomlin, and Michael W. Smith.
Kenny's work has been featured in numerous publications including Destination Weddings & Honeymoon, The Knot, The KoreAm Journal, WIND Magazine and more. He is a platinum list member in highly acclaimed Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine. He is also an active member of WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International) and has recently received special honors in the WPPI 2010 Awards of Excellence 16x20 International Print Competition. He has been voted by The Knot Magazine in 2010 as the Best of Weddings in photography.
