AMAZING Experience...THE BEST PHOTOS

Reviewed on 10/02/2014 Erica L

Ann & Kam are incredible!!!! BEST Experience! The minute I got engaged I knew photography would be my number one priority. The photos you will have for a lifetime...Plus I am a huge photo person!! I began my research right away. Ann & Kam came highly recommended as one of... Read More the best in the Chicago area and after looking for myself I loved their photos!! Their use of light, capturing feeling and incorporating the feel of the wedding was super important to us. After our first phone call to Ann & Kam I immediately knew they would be our wedding photographers. You have to click with your photographer and we just clicked. Both Ann and Kam are wonderful people and AMAZING photographers. Our engagement pictures were incredible. They looked like something out of hollywood. Highlighted the Chicago backdrops, and captured my fiance and I enjoying eachother and a Chicago fall. Then came the wedding. Ann and Kam BLEW us away with their photos. The sneak peak alone was more than I could have imagined. EVERYONE complimented them...Our families and friends. I could not recommend Ann and Kam more. Talented photographers. Wonderful people. They made the experience enjoyable and that is all we could have hoped for.


Ann & Kam are the best!

I don't know what my wedding would have been like without Ann and Kam. My husband and I count ourselves truly lucky to have found them. They made everything so easy and so special. Yes, they are top-notch photographers, but they are also fantastic people - and when you're... Read More trusting someone with documenting one of the most important days of your life, it helps to know that they will go above and beyond because they really care about YOU. It's personal for them and I think it shows in the quality of their work. Ann and Kam work together professionally to make you feel relaxed and at ease. They give direction for shots, but are also open to suggestions. Their candid work is amazing and I feel as though I'm reliving the exact moments of my wedding as I look back at the photos. Not only were my husband and I over the moon about Ann and Kam, my family loved them too. They fit right in - not too intrusive, but present to catch all of the great moments. Ann and Kam also have a wonderful work ethic. They are hard workers committed to the quality of their craft.

I am a Wedding Planner with Storybook Weddings and Events in Chicago, and I worked a wedding this past October with Ann and her husband Kam. They were super sweet and very easy to work with.

We had nothing but a wonderful experience with Ann & Kam. They really captures every element of our wedding that we requested and more.

I am so lucky to relive my wedding day everyday with the most stunning and gorgeous wedding photos. My husband and I met with Ann and Kam, and not only are they fun and great people to work with, they are unbelievably talented. When we sifted through their look books, I was... Read More taken aback with some of their shots. I never thought that my wedding photos could be as beautiful and breathtaking as the ones in those books - BUT I was thankfully mistaken. Ann and Kam are so creative. They see angles that you would not think of, which gave us unique and cool photos that I have never seen anyone else have. They also go above and beyond to get the shot. I remember Ann rolling on the ground 6 months pregnant because she had a vision, and Kam would climb around rooms and windowsills because he had an idea. And ultimately, I have the most beautiful photos - photos that I will not only cherish for the rest of my life but am proud to brag about and show everyone else. I recommend doing engagement photos and wedding photos with them. Not only are the pictures amazing and good keepsakes to have, but it helps loosen you up for the big day and stay relaxed because you have already gone through it before. I absolutely LOVE their work. My friends and family still talk about the wedding photos to this day! I try to think of different parties I could potentially throw because I want them to take more pictures so I may have even more beautiful reminders all around me. I would hire them again and again!

I found them on an instagram hunt for a wedding photographer. Like many brides, I reached out to... Read More about 20 photographers as that was one of my top priorities. But not a single one was remotely comparable to Ann & Kam, just look at their pages, their images are STUNNING! I can say with confidence that working with them was the best decision I made in the planning process. The husband and wife duo executes everything perfectly and creates images I didn't even know were possible. There was never any awkwardness or pressure, in fact they felt like friends that we had known for years and made everything extremely comfortable. They made my wedding dreams come true and I'm incredibly thankful to have the beautiful images for a lifetime.

We first met Ann & Kam for our engagement shots and immediately loved them. They are both so professional and... Read More fun to work with. I love the creativity and ideas they add to every shot. It is clear they are both very passionate about their job. Also, they are both so diligent with editing the pictures… while enjoying our honeymoon we woke up to our wedding sneak peek!

His videos evoke so much emotion they are truly amazing. Check them out on the blog. Our wedding photos are unbelievably gorgeous we had a few requests and Ann & Kam made them happen. 300 guests gathered on the Uihlean plaza steps at the Chicago History Museum… EPIC is the only word I have to describe it. The best part of working with Ann & Kam is the incredibly thoughtful messages they post on their blog with the engagement & wedding photos. They surely know how to make you feel extra special during this wonderful time in your life.

Best wedding photographers in Chicago!.. Anywhere!

Our wedding photos were the one thing we wanted to splurge on because it was the thing you will remember and keep forever from that day. So we didn't mind the cost as long as it was worth it. Ann and Kam were amazing from day one when we emailed and were so so so worth the... Read More price! We met each other first before deciding to go with them (and them with us) which was good because we could see if we would be a good personality fit. We had researched lots of photographers so we already knew we liked their style (illustrative - a blend of photojournalism candid as things go photos and some posed portrait). You can see from their photos that they are amazing at catching movement in crisp shots. On our first meeting we ended up talking for an hour just getting to know each other! We had been engaged for a while so we weren't too into the engagement photos thing but I highly recommend it because it gives you and your partner a chance to get used to getting photographed. Ann and Kam were great at making us feel comfortable and natural and even gave us suggestions that came out looking super natural! They even worked with us to do our engagement photos in Wisconsin because we both had family out there! Prior to the day of, they helped us map out our day to make sure we had all the shots we wanted (along with suggestions). And before the day was over, they made sure we had every shot we wanted before they called it a night. Ann and Kam are amazing photographers, a great team (two photographers for the price of one!) and are just all around fun people! We've gotten along so well, my husband and I consider them our new friends! I would recommend them to anyone for any event, especially wedding photos!

During our engagement session, they listened to what we wanted, and when we didn't know what we wanted, they had fantastic suggestions to capture what we were looking for. After our engagement session, we were even more excited for the wedding to get to work with them again! Fast forward to our wedding - we simply had the best time working with this incredible team. They were never intrusive - I was really hoping to have a special moment with my mom and sisters putting my dress on, which I wanted to capture on film, but was worried whether adding extra people to the mix would be intrusive. Ann, Kam, and their team were able to capture some very sweet moments, and I never once felt like they overstepped their bounds or got in the way. That is just one example, but the entire day was like this. For the first look, they gave us space to talk to each other, to be in the moment, but were able to effectively capture such a special moment. While there were so many great aspects in the day, If we had to focus on one specific thing that we loved about working with Ann and Kam, it was their easy nature. They are a great team, and that expands to everyone they are working with. They never made us feel rushed or nervous, and were able to laugh with the wedding party when we were all goofing off (at one point they were both lying on the ground taking pictures to get a different angle in the middle of Lincoln Park - talk about dedication!). They also got in there with all our family and friends on the dance floor and captured some amazing and hilarious images at the party - if I hadn't seen a camera in one of their hands I probably would have thought they had joined the party (which would have been awesome!). We wholeheartedly recommend Ann & Kam to any couples who are looking for a great team to capture their day and have fun doing it! Thank you Ann & Kam for being so wonderful to work with!
