Dan shot our engagement photo session as well as our wedding. We can't sing any higher praises about him and his work. He was absolutely wonderful in all aspects, from his easy-going personality to his amazing artistic style. Dan can translate any normal scene into the most beautiful, creative photograph simply by his choice of lighting, background and angle.

We LOVED all the pictures! We were so taken with how the engagement pictures really captured our personalities that we used a lot of them in our wedding guest sign-in photo book. Dan also had this great idea of shooting "action" sequences, which were so hilarious that we had our videographer incorporate them into our slideshow. The wedding pictures were just as fabulous. There were so many that we liked, we ended up creating a 196-page coffee table photo book. Everybody who has seen the photo books had nothing but glowing compliments about Dan's photography. And we can't be any more pleased. Dan is simply the best!

Dan - Thank you so much for giving us great memories that we can look upon for many years to come.

My entire experience with Dan was superior. Dan is able to create an environment of comfort and ease that allows you to feel natural and free to be yourself in front of the camera. This combined with his ability to understand you as person and use his creative eye, allows him to not only capture your essence, but to then translate that into stunning, fresh, innovative and completely satisfying photographs. Dan understood exactly what I wanted out of the session and then exceeded this. I would recommend Dan to everyone and anyone for any type of need or occasion.

Thank you Dan!

PROS: Innovative style, great personality, patient, professional
CONS: None

Dan took fashion photographs of me. The photographs were absolutely beautiful. Not only do they capture my personality and my mood that day, but they were also very creative and artistic. Dan is really a talented artist -- the camera is his brush, and he knows how to create art with photography. It was also very fun and enjoyable working with Dan!

I did a headshot session with Dan. The experience was great! He's very easy and fun to work with, and more importantly, he has a very creative eye that lets him produce beautiful, natural, and expressive photographs. He gets to know you, puts you at ease, and really knows how to bring out your personality. My agents and casting directors love my photos!

PROS: Very pleasant to work with, easy going, fun!
CONS: Hmmm.... nothing I could think of!

Dan photographed our wedding and did a wonderful job. The pictures came out beautifully and you can definitely tell that Dan has that special eye for photography. He was easy to work with, and picture-taking did not seem long or tedious. We had such a great time which you could tell from our pictures. Our only problem now is picking out which photos to put in our album. I have no hestitation in recommending Dan for all of your wedding photography needs.

It's hard to be intimate with your future spouse in front of the lens, but Dan made us feel so at ease. He took our engagement pictures a few weeks ago and we had a really fun time with him clicking away. What's more, our pictures turned out wonderful!! Now we just need to narrow down which picture gets displayed at the wedding. More than likely, we will end up having three pics displayed. Yup, three because we cannot decide! That's how great the pictures turned out. We definitely lucked out with Dan Kim!!!

PROS: Talented and Nice!!!
CONS: None!

Dogs and kids are tricky photo subjects for any professional photographer. But Dan's work goes waaaay beyond professional-- he is great. His photos of dogs and kids capture tons of personality and emotional-richness. Dan takes such patient joy in working for those great shots...not just once, but so many great shots -- more than I needed. What a keen eye, and what a gem to work with!

I'm a photographer, and I'm very picture about the lighting and composition of my photos. I trusted no one other than Dan Kim to make the pictures of my wedding. He captured the moments, the expressions, and the emotion of our special day in a unique manner that we can't wait to show to all our friends and family. He's got "that eye." He knows how to make a drab scene dramatic and to cut through the clutter of a crowd to bring out the essence of the subject.

PROS: Undstood our personality quickly and exceeded our expectations.
CONS: Difficult to choose from all the good pictures

Dan did a wonderful job shooting our wedding. It was a very long day due to an early ceremony and evening reception, but his energy level and enthusiasm were always there. Dan has a great eye for the perfect moment, and instead of taking shots that are common at all weddings, he adds something creative to his photos.

Dan was very fun to work with, and he encouraged us to be comfortable and enjoy ourselves instead of telling us exactly what to do or making us feel awkward and forced. He was always ready when we wanted something photographed, and we were never wondering where he was throughout the day.

We have gotten many comments from family and friends on how beautiful and elegant Dan's photos are. I highly recommend Dan for your wedding or any other event you have. He is very professional, and his friendly, willing attitude surpassed our expectations. We're so glad we chose him for our wedding!

Dan Kim photographed the premier launch event for my new company, and he is without a doubt a first-rate photographer. Classic yet bold and experimental, Dan knows how to capture the essence of any special event. He is a true talent and I am looking forward to working him again.

Dan took photos at our son's bar mitzvah. His shots were creative and interesting and really captured the feel of the event. My whole family enjoyed dealling with him. He approaches the posed shots with a sense of humor and doesn't push people into stiff, unnatural poses. He specializes in candid shots and got some great ones. Dan also created a video montage for the party and we got a lot of compliments on it. Dan is a genuinely nice person, which really colors the experience of dealing with him. He goes out of his way to make things work for his clients. Finally, Dan was very reasonable; he is worth much more than he charged.

Choosing the right photographer can be confusing. All the wedding photographers told us their "pitch" - their packages, their creative outlook, their prices. Dan Kim stands out among the rest because of the supreme quality of his pictures, his caring personality and demeanor, and his reasonable prices.

First of all, the pictures are amazing. Everytime we look at the pictures, it feels like we are experiencing the wedding again. One of my favorite pictures was a snapshot of the dancefloor through my veil. It was artistic and yet captured the moment perfectly. Dan's eye doesn't miss a moment. His training and experience will create unforgettable images.- images that others might miss.

Most importantly, Dan makes everyone around him feel comfortable. While other photographers we met were haughty and high-strung, Dan is unobtrusive and calm. Although the actual wedding day is a whirlwind of emotions and activity, my husband and I completed trusted and relied on Dan and enjoyed his company. Dan works with his couples and makes the entireday fun and enjoyable. This comfort level shines through in our pictures.

Most wedding studios offer a number of packages. Prices can range from $950 to over $10,000, depending on the size of the event, the day on which it is held and so forth. If you are on a limited budget, it is even more imperative that you make a wise choice to get the best value for your investment. Dan's prices are reasonable for all that he offers.

If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail Claudia Wang at wangclaudia1@hotmail.com. I would happy to talk with you!

I had a wonderful experience using Dan as my photographer for my headshots. I was nervous about hamming it up for the camera but Dan made me feel very comfortable. Not only did I get great service but his photos also turned out GREAT. I landed a modeling agent who thought that my photographer was one of THEIR referred photographers (being that the photo looked so good!). Overall, great experience and would recommend Dan to all my friends.

PROS: Good quality and made me feel comfortable
CONS: can't think of any...

Dan is a great headshot photographer. He really put me at ease during the shoot and was interested in my input. He kept me abreast with everything he was doing and made sure I was comfortable the whole time. He naturally has an incredible eye for photography and I felt completely confident that the finished product was going to turn out great....and it did!

Dan is as good as any photographer when it comes to taking crisp, clear, choreographed pictures. But if you want a photographer who can capture a moment that is private, beautiful and inspiring, Dan is better than any photographer I have seen. His work reminds me of a Degas painting. It is as if his pictures were taken through a peephole in a door and the subjects of his work had no idea he was there. I both laughed and cried when I saw the photographs Dan took of my family. I have him to thank for freezing time for a split second and capturing priceless memories I will treasure forever.

Dan is Bella (2 yrs) and Annie's (10 mos) favorite photographer. Ever since Bella was 3 mos. Dan has been doing our children's portraits, which we use in our annual Christmas cards. We always get tons of compliments from our family and friends after they see Dan's photos in our Christmas cards. Dan's patience and his natural and gentle charm with our children make for great portraits. Dan and his funny assistants know how to make Bella and Annie laugh and capture all those expressions that we will cherish for a lifetime.

Dan Kim is our law firm's exclusive photographer for all website, publicity and news photo shoots. He replaced our prior photographer who handled covers a for a major new magazine - and Dan is simply better. Dan provided world class photos and regularly does it for us on a quick turnaround so my business is not wasting its time. I unequivocally recommend Dan for any photography-related projects for your business and especially for headshots that your employees may need to advertise their services.

If I had to describe Dan's work in one word, I would have to use: "Genius". I have seen him take headshots, pre-wedding and wedding photos, music concert shots and even animal pictures. All of his work is remarkable - pristine, creative, and captivating. Dan recently took portrait shots of my family and we replaced every single frame in the house with Dan's photos. He is a master of editing (in case you ever want those acne scars removed), but more importantly, he has the "eye" which captures the beauty in each moment, whether that comes from a flower falling in the background or from a grandmother's smile. My two friends, Claudia & Dave, who recently got married, have the most amazing wedding pictures - the colors, the smiles, and the eventful moments were captured as if Dan never stopped shooting. In addition, if you're looking for action shots, Dan is the master - ask to see his animal shots - they are always on the move, but each picture shows the personality and livelihood of each pet. I have seen the work of a lot of professional photographers, but at the end of the day, if I need a photographer for my wedding, family portraits or any other special event, I'll be calling Dan Kim for sure.

Planning a premium wedding in Southern California is a daunting task ... it demands greatly of one's time, patience, and most importantly ... capital.

Evaluating all of the high-end vendors is a project that takes months, if not years. For photography studios, we happened to interview and review the work of nine principal photographers that presented the style we had in mind for our wedding in Rancho Palos Verdes; their rates ranged from $4,000 to $12,500. The one charging $12,500 at the time [Fall, 2004] is now actually charging $120,000 for wedding photography ... that's right ... $120,000. We didn't hire him. It wasn't even really close. We hired Dan Kim ... and it was probably one of the two or three best decisions we made leading up to our wedding.

When you find a professional whose style, poise, talent and personality shines well above the rest, you really want to share his or her name with everybody you know. Dan Kim is one such professional. To this day, I stop by to review his new work every once in a while ... his latest wedding photography always seems to be sublime, elegant, novel, and uplifting all at once. We have always believed that his sense of style and timing is unparalleled relative to his peers in Southern California and Dan consistently rises to meet that standard. Though he is relatively new to the game, he's hitting the cover off the ball each and every time he accepts an assignment.

Dan Kim Photography has earned our highest endorsement ... thank you again, Dan!

PROS: Style, Vision, and Value
CONS: None ... absolutely none.

Dan's vision is incredible. He is able to capture the personality of his subject perfectly. He is also completely adaptable, and knows what to do if the subject needs a certain type of shot. Nothing is ever forced, and this shines through in all his shots. He is incredibly upbeat and patient, which adds to the enjoyable experience of shooting with him. My agent commented on how great my pictures came out, which in the agent world is just short of a miricle. Anyone who needs pictures should hurry before Dan is completely unaffordable!!

Dan has the eye. He knows the difference between cheese and elegance, and always seems to be at the right place at the right time. With regards to wedding photographers, he is the best. Most people will try to weasel every buck out of you once you say the word "wedding," but Dan prices fairly and consistently, according to his services, not the occasion.
From portraits to photo-journalism, he knows how to get the most out of the subjects, location, colors and light. Not to mention, his easy-going/joking personality makes it easy to develop a rapport necessary for subjects to be comfortable.
As a graduate from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, I've seen my share of talented photographers -- Dan rates right up there with the best of them. Check out his web site and see for yourself.
