Talk about feeling blessed. On a recommendation from my bride's friend, we selected Joey Ikemoto Photography for our March wedding. It was the best decision we made.

Its really hard to separate the great ones from the best ones because all of the various shots are wonderful in our eyes. Thank you Joey Ikemoto Photography for giving us a lifetime of memories!

Joey was absolutely amazing! He captured all the special moments at my wedding and I could not ask for more. Additionally, he was very well prepared for ANYTHING.

They used so many angles and perspectives, and allowed for the details and theme to show in the photos. So far the photos have been edited thoughtfully and beautifully. On a hectic wedding day, with so much going on and so many family members to see, the day can pass in a flash. Joey and his staff greatly organized our day and focused on moments they knew we would cherish. Sam and Nathan used wonderful judgement and the natural outdoor light to make our home wedding look vibrant. We would highly recomment Joey Ikemoto and his staff. They are truly legendary for their beautiful and careful work.
