After countless friends told me, if they could have 1 wedding do-over it would be the photography budget, I was not about to make that mistake! We met with 2 photographers and when my then fiance’ and I met Kenny in his studio and immediately,...
we felt comfortable and at ease with him, and upon perusing the photo albums from prior weddings, we were impressed and our decision was quickly made! He is absolutely an amazing photographer, and works well with all ages, and group sizes! Additionally, he is a WPPI award winning photographer, which carries industry distinction! Kenny has a fantastic eye for placing and posing individuals, framing up the photograph, and capturing candid moments.
He is an artist, perfectionist, and above all else, a kind and humble professional! Your engagement and wedding photos will look like they belong in a magazine, and he delivers on his promise, “My job is to make you look good.” We had pouring rain on our wedding day, and not only do our photos look absolutely amazing, but there’s also dreamy quality he captured from the rain. He scouts the city and makes wonderful recommendations! On our rainy wedding day, we were looking for outdoor covered locations, and as we drove past the Lyric Opera house my heart sunk when I saw 3 bridal parties already set up for photos. But, Kenny said “I know of an even better place, let’s go to Union Station,” and he captured the most amazing and scenic backgrounds, and we had hardly any foot traffic, and no other bridal party was there for photos! We saved so much time from his location expertise!
If you have the opportunity to make the investment in your wedding photos, I highly recommend Nakai Photography. In the end, your guests celebrated and returned home, the bridal gown gets preserved, flowers become wilted, and rentals are returned. From your wedding day, you are left with the memories from your photos, so why not select the best photographer to capture the most memorable day of your lives through photos that will last forever? Kenny also created the most stunning wedding album I've ever seen, it's leather-bound, gorgeous spreads that it will last a lifetime.

Kenny is the most talented wedding photographer in Chicago! He was the first and only photographer we met with based on his portfolio and his experience with Chicago weddings especially at the Langham Hotel. His attention to detail is unmatched...
. He took pictures of every element of our wedding which we truly appreciate because we spend so much time planning those small details. Kenny and his associate were very enthusiastic and personable making our photoshoots fun and comfortable. Kenny's expertise brilliantly captured the essence of our wedding that still transcends emotions to this day! We were blown away by the details, the feelings and the magic that his pictures told! We can't wait to hire Kenny again for future life events!

e emotions/intimate moments in a shot. I trusted him completely and his attention to detail left nothing missed from our Greek/American wedding!
Not having a videographer it was critical we chose a photographer could capture the authentic moments and feelings of the day. So thankful for the amazing experience working with him and look forwarding to using him for any other future life events and family portraits!

Kenny is the best! I have been following Kenny's work for years! I finally get married and he was thankfully available.
I did an engagement shoot and wedding with Kenny. He is very good at giving instruction to us non professional model...
s which is a big plus! He takes charge of the shoot, but with kindness. I have had multiple friends who question his price, but later regret not using him. He is truly worth it.
There are lots of photographers out there that can pose people, but Kenny is able to capture the moment. My personal experience at my engagement shoot and wedding day was complete professionalism and he was always prepared. I had no worries about the quality of work he was providing.
I would most certainly recommend Kenny not only for engagement and wedding, but also family portraits.

Kenny was the first wedding photographer I went to meet with and after seeing several others, he was my top choice. He has photographed several South Asian weddings, and adds a creative touch to everything he does. He's great at "going with t...
he flow" amidst the craziness of a South Asian wedding. The pictures I have seen so far are beyond amazing. I'm so glad we chose Kenny to be our wedding photographer!
