Joey photographed our wedding this Spring and did an engagement shoot for us. We were very satisfied with the results. Joey is professional, experienced and fun. His products are above market, but they are high quality. You definitely get what you pay for. We would recommend him to anyone!
Finding the BEST photographer for the wedding was TOP Priority. We did'nt even shop around for another photographer. I had them in mind before I had my man chosen! SAM did an awesome job in our wedding pictures. Kevin was the best bridesmaid!! lol. They were very punctual, professional, they are quick, fast and very fantastic pictures. They were PHENOMENAL!! we had no doubts when we were booking the date and when we were scheduling everything.
They are the BEST OF THE WEST!!! I guarantee it!
Planning a wedding from across the country is always hard to do. It's nerve racking to hire someone that you've never met in person and can only approve of them based on their body of work. Joey's photos were superb, so my wife and I were going into this arrangement feel pretty good about our decision. What we got on the day of, we could never have dreamed of. Joey blew our expectations out of the water and was a class act the entire day. He got shots that were amazing, got a crying baby to stop crying and smile in an instant, and single handedly made our day with his attitude, enthusiasm, and dedication to his craft. We would hire Joey again in a heart beat if we had to do it all over again. Couldn't be happier.
We searched and met with countless photographers forever..... then we finally saw the works of Joey Ikemoto online. His art is simply PERFECT. The first day we met Joey was unforgettable.... he is indeed very charismatic and made us comfortable. I'm amazed with his humbleness to listen to exactly how and what we wanted; he's very open to ideas. Not pushy at all.
He assigned us his super patient assistant Tracy and the perfect awesome photographers .... Sam with his assistant Stephanie. They were incredible! The day of the wedding was amazing, with so much going-on... he definitely took our stress away and just made us enjoy the photoshoot of our special day. Thank you Sam and Steph!!!
Our wedding day was indeed magical...The pictures were unbelievable!....and.... Joey and his staff captured it forever for us...... to relive it over and over again.
This people were strangers to us....but with our experience, we now consider them our family FOREVER. Thank you Joey and everybody at the Joey Ikemoto Photography. God bless!
With Sincere Gratitude,
Maryanne and Robert
I searched all over LA to make sure I was choosing the right photographer for our wedding. After visiting the studio and seeing the quality of work that Joey Ikemoto produces, I knew I found the one. Sam photographed our special day and he was amazing. He was prompt, knew how to get what he needed out of people quickly and even managed large groups with ease. Our photos are absolutely gorgeous and we couldn't be happier! I would recommend this studio to any bride!
I highly recommend Joey Ikemoto Photography Studio. They are very friendly and do amazing work. They are also very patient, which was good for me since I took a long time making decisions.
Our meeting with Joey was great. He has a funny sense of humor and is very knowledgeable about weddings. If it was not for him, our wedding would have had no timeline. He asked all the right questions and had us write down a schedule of events. He basically planned our whole wedding and I am very thankful for that since I am horrible at planning events.
For the day of, our photographers were Sam and Jean. They were both very professional and not obnoxious at all. They also helped me keep things on track. The photos they took are stunning. They are both very talented and very creative with their surrounding environment. Sam and Jean are also very patient (A lot of my family showed up early while we were taking pre-ceremony photos). They both did a fabulous job at capturing all the important moments.
If you decide to go with Joey Ikemoto Studio, I also highly recommend purchasing a wedding album. I was hesitant at first and didn't think getting one was necessary. So glad I did! Their albums are beautiful and well done. I especially recommend this for those who are not huge on scrap booking and will probably never find the time to create a wedding album. I know a couple who have been married for several years and have been creating their wedding album for several years. The wife is very creative and enjoys projects like this. Sometimes there is not enough time in the verse for a project like this. Don't let that be you.
Even though my husband and I are not big on printed photos, we absolutely love our wedding album. It is also a great way to show your family and friends who prefer to flip through pages instead of looking at a computer screen. Not to mention the book is gorgeous. If you are planning on doing a wedding album, having Joey Ikemoto Studio creating it will probably save you many headaches.
Bottom line, welcoming, friendly, patient, amazing photos, great photographers, beautiful wedding album, you get what you pay for, and overall wonderful experience.
If you want your special day to be captured to perfection, Joey Ikemoto Photography is exactly who you should choose. This company is so professional, so friendly, and has more experience creating and saving your wedding memories than any other company out there. I could go on and on and rave about how thrilled my husband and I were the day of and are now with the product we received. My mantra during the entire wedding process was that the two most important vendors you choose are your DJ and your photographer because your DJ helps to MAKE your memories and your photographer helps to SAVE them for years and years to come. Choose Joey; he's not inexpensive, but his company is worth every single penny. You won't be disappointed.
Joey Ikemoto is an incredibly talented, professional, and organized photographer. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is wanting great quality photos. Prior to the wedding, we had a couple meetings to talk about what my husband and I wanted from our wedding pictures. I loved how I was able to send him pictures of the shots I wanted from my wedding in advance. The day of the wedding, he had a folder with all the different shots I had sent him so we could get those pictures! I was impressed. The wedding day went so smoothly. He and his assistant coordinated with my wedding coordinator and we were able to get all the pictures we wanted within the time we had. Everyone in my wedding party was impressed by his professionalism and quickness as well. If you are looking for a photographer who truly loves and hones his craft (and makes you look beautiful!) Joey Ikemoto is definitely the guy to go to.
Joey was absolutely amazing! He had an assistant on the day (Kevin) who was equally as professional and their ability to direct and relax people was unbelievable. They really exceeded all my expectations and the reviews you have read about how good he is really are true!! I honestly cannot recommend Joey any higher or convey how brilliant he really is! Engagement photos were stunning and my wedding preview photos had me in tears of joy! Every aspect of the wedding day was captured from the intimate moments to the more formal photos in perfect timing. I was blown away with his professionalism and how relaxed he made myself and my husband feel!! 10/10... I Would recommend Joey as Number 1 on your list for photography without a doubt. Absolutely brilliant.
My husband and I are very happy with our photographer. Joey is very professional and organized. He basically did the whole timeline for us. Really really glad we chose him to capture our special day.
I have to say that Joey Ikemoto and his team are brilliant, creative, professional, and patient! I had such a good and positive experience with Joey Ikemoto Photography. Joey's artistry goes beyond any wedding pictures I've seen! He also is very structured when it comes to scheduling the day of, which made me feel at ease as a bride on that very hectic day. I also want to add that his business is a beautiful studio with stunning photos all around. It just made me feel like this is a professional photographer and that I was in good hands. Seeing samples face-to-face in the studio made my decision to go wth Joey even stronger. Additionally, our wedding album is immaculate! We were all very pleased.
I hired Joey and his team as a recommendation from our wedding venue coordinator and this was an EXCELLENT recommendation. Joey and his team worked around our schedule considering my groom was in another state. We had our engagement photo shoot a few days before our big day and Joey was the photographer; the day was fun and this pictures turned out beautiful. Jean and Kyler were the photographers for our wedding and they were VERY professional and captured very precious moments. I cannot write this review without mentioning how helpful Tracy has been since our wedding. I HIGHLY recommend Joey Ikemoto photography for any photography needs. We were HIGHLY impressed with the experience and so happy we chose this photography studio.
We chose Joey Ikemoto because of their photography style and pricing options. Admittedly, their office was a little far to drive to from our home, but we were intrigued by their combined use of traditional, photojournalistic, and artistic photography styles. When we met Joey for the first time, he was very professional and personable. We appreciated the fact that he is dedicated to his craft and continues to strive for the best and the latest in photography technology. Not a fly-by-night operation here or someone who does it for a hobby! A little pricey, but you get what you pay for. On their pricing options, we liked that you weren't locked into getting so many particular prints or albums. You choose your package based on your budget. Then you can use that deposit money to purchase any combination of prints or albums! We have only just received our images online and haven't chosen our album yet. But so far, I have been very pleased with them. The photographers (2 are included!) on the wedding day were friendly and professional, putting people at ease and capturing some truly great moments!
As promised Joey photography gave my now husband and I such beautiful work of art. I am in love with my pictures and their service was prompt and always helpful. The images will last me forever in my heart. They follow whatever we wish. They made my special memorable.
Joey and his team are absolutely amazing! Sam and Kevin did a great job capturing every moment at our wedding. They were on time, very professional, great with kids, and took amazing shots. Our photos came out FANTASTIC!!! I can't say enough wonderful things about them! The entire process was great!
My husband and I searched the Knot's website for wedding photographers last year and Joey Ikemoto came up highly recommended. We're glad we booked them! The pictures came out great and the photographers were very detailed. Best in the area!
Joey did an amazing job on my Chicago wedding. He was nice enough to come out to Chicago and do a beautiful job on my photos. He has a great creative eye. He was willing to go out of his way to get the perfect shots. He also had a lot of fun with me and my bridal party. We did things I wouldn't even think of and the photos came out great. I am so happy with his services. All of his staff is amazing and so accommodating. All of my guests were impressed with the photos and what they saw. I received nothing but compliments. I would highly recommend Joey Ikemoto Photography.
You will not find a better and more organized photographer! He even sat down with my husband and I and went through the day in half hour increments. He helped me to schedule my appointments and fit in all of the portraits I wanted through out the day.
You should check out his website, there are some amazing photos there.
Joey and his team are DEFINITELY the BEST in the business and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who is interested in capturing QUALITY photographs of the SPECIAL and PRECIOUS moments in their lives. I knew the moment I saw his work in an album...which stood out above and beyond all others...that this man and his team were TALENTED and GIFTED beyond measure. Photography is not just their business...it's their PASSION... and it shows in their work. Their attention to detail is AMAZING. They are a PROFESSIONAL, FRIENDLY and TALENTED group of people...who made our wedding day EXTRA special...by capturing those SPECIAL moments which now...thanks to Joey, Tracy, Sam and Daryl...can be seen and appreciated for a lifetime. Trust me...they ROCK!!!
When my husband and I got engaged I knew the only photographer I could have was Joey Ikemoto. My family has been lucky enough to have him shoot several weddings and family portraits over the past 15 years and we have always been thrilled with the outcomes. Joey's beautiful work and reputation in the South Bay speak for themselves but what I think makes him such an outstanding photographer is the way he relates to his clients. He has a way about him that makes you feel like you have been best friends for years and he just happens to be taking your picture. He's professional when the time warrants and he's hilarious at others. Everyone in my family felt completely at ease with Joey including the many children in my wedding party. He is willing to act silly, make animal sounds, jump up an down, and basically act a fool in order to make the children smile! I love this about him! Some of my favorite pictures from the day are when he was equally making the adults and children bust up laughing. We recently received our wedding album and I cannot express in words how beautiful the final product turned out. Every important moment of the day was captured: pictures with the grandparents, candid shots of me and my husbands sneaking kisses when we though no one else was looking, and my favorite, the moment my husband saw me walking down the aisle. It's like reliving the best day of our lives every time we look at it.
Joey Ikemoto Photography was fantastic. They were on time, helpful and took great photos.
