Sean Kim is absolutely amazing. I don't even know where to begin because I cannot say enough good things about Sean Kim and Sean Gallery Photography. We got married on 11/30/18 and at first, had a difficult time finding a photographer we loved...
. We felt that many photographers did not have the talent and aesthetic we were looking for. We were even told by numerous companies that they would "concerned" doing our wedding because we were getting married later in the day and there would not be enough "natural light" for photos (can you believe that!?). In the end, we were so beyond grateful that we continued our search because it led us to the best wedding photographers, Sean Kim and Lenny. After looking at Sean's portfolio, we knew he was the right fit. After meeting him, it only confirmed that we were in the BEST hands. He is a highly experienced, artistic, and talented photographer that is hands down amazing at what he does. Our wedding pictures are absolutely breathtaking, truly the kind of wedding pictures you can only dream of. Sean and Lenny mastered the perfect mix of formal and natural shots, while using their creative eye to ensure they were incredible. Besides the fact that Sean and Lenny are crazy talented, they have such a calm presence that you want (need) on your wedding day. Sean and Lenny were incredible throughout the entire day! Highly recommend Sean Gallery!

My fiancée (now husband!) and I looked all over for months to find the perfect venue for our wedding. We wanted a mix of something traditional, however also knew we wanted to have the NYC skyline. When we finally found our venue, we knew we had...
to look extra hard to find the PERFECT photographer to help us with our vision and who also had experience in capturing beautiful day and night shots, as the lighting can be trickier.
After meeting with several photographers and meticulously looking into their portfolios, reading reviews, we never had that feeling that we found the photographer right for us. Luckily we stumbled upon Sean’s portfolio on Fearless Photographers. We were amazed with how gorgeous the pictures were (with plenty of night shots) and we knew we had to meet with him right away. During our meeting with Sean, he gave us insight on what the best possible timing was to fit the pictures we wanted based on his experience and also listened to any concerns we had.
We quickly booked Sean (before anyone else did!) and originally only intended to have photography coverage for ceremony and reception. However we decided near our wedding date to include additional hours for getting ready and post-reception night shots or else we would regret it. It was the BEST DECISION ever made.
During the day of the wedding, I was extremely nervous that we would not have enough time to capture everything as it was a bit of a time crunch, (due to a late addition of a Tea Ceremony) but Sean was extremely supportive and reassuring. Sean and his associate Jeffrey came in with bright smiles and immediately went to work in taking pictures of wedding details and of the bridesmaids while I was getting ready. He was friendly and with humor brought out everyone’s genuine smiles.
Throughout the course of the day, Sean took us to different locations near the venue and we followed whichever direction he gave to capture the pictures. He was extremely professional and had the most authentic personality that you could tell he really loved what he was doing. Did I already mention that he was really funny? The night flew by extremely fast and by the next morning I was so anxious to see pictures but knew that it would take a while to see any. Little did I know that TWO days later, Sean would send numerous teaser photos that looked absolutely AMAZING!!! The sparkler exit, the night shots, the first look, candid shots, everything was BEAUTIFUL.
Note, my husband and I did not have Sean take our engagement photos due to budget reasons so we never worked with him prior AND also had him as a single photographer so we REALLY put our trust in him, and he definitely delivered. We are SO APPRECIATIVE and extend our biggest thanks and cannot recommend him highly enough. We can’t wait to see the rest of the photos!

We were concerned about many factors when it came to our wedding - it was intimate (about 30 people), at a smaller venue, and mostly everything was DIY. Up to the morning of the big day, we were working double time to ensure everything was set ...
up, as we were doing everything by hand.
None of these things mattered when it came to Sean. He arrived and promptly began working around us. He was caring and attentive, and he immediately put everyone at ease. Throughout the night, he captured the most beautiful shots - both directed and candid. I don't even know how but he was everywhere at once, and barely took a break. Everyone who attended commented at least once about how wonderful Sean was, and we could not agree more. He managed to take the most genuine and heartwarming shots of everyone and everything that was important to us, from the small handmade decorations to each individual member of our family. He even managed to send us an album of preview pictures two days after our wedding, letting us look through the cherished moments of that special day (which felt like it flew by) with our close ones.
We are so grateful to Sean for helping make our wedding day even more special. We thank him for respecting our family, for having fun with us while shooting, and for all the memories he captured. Sean is highly recommended not only for his impeccable skill but for his authentic personality. Thank you, Sean!!

igner, it was difficult for me at first to find a photographer whose photos I really loved. It was the thing I cared about the most for our wedding. As soon as I saw Sean’s work, though, I couldn’t even look at anyone else’s. I loved the fact that he retouches every photo separately, and doesn’t apply a batch filter to every photo like most wedding photographers do.
We did an engagement shoot with Sean a few months after we got engaged and immediately knew we had to have him at our wedding. He has the most amazing eye for light and detail. You might think you’re standing in front of a simple field of tall grass and then you see the photo and realize that Sean has captured the light in such a magical way that every photo is a work of art. He also captures just the right moments to make everything look very natural and not posed at all.
It’s so evident that he truly loves what he does. It really shows in his work.
On the day of the wedding, Sean arrived with his assistant Will early and ready to go. It was one of the hottest days of the year and he did a wonderful job trying to keep us in the shade while taking pictures in the park before the wedding. Will was great and made us laugh so much. He carried my flowers and helped me with my long dress train, he was awesome. They had the best spirits all day and were always there to capture the right moments without ever even being noticeable. So many of our guests told us how much they loved our photographer.
We were able to see many teaser photos the morning right after our wedding! I have no idea how Sean managed to do so many photos so quickly but we were absolutely ecstatic to see them and loved every one of them.
He is very responsive to emails and was so helpful in planning our day, providing ideas for photo locations and schedules. He makes everything completely stress-free.
If you are looking for a photographer for your wedding, working with Sean will be the best decision you’ve ever made, I promise you.

Sean is so warm and inviting I immediately felt at ease with him. His packages definitely aren’t cheap but my fiance and I were okay with splurging on a good photographer so that we could capture everything.

I loved that Sean was not imposing and never pressured us to get anything that we didn’t want. When he told us that another couple was considering booking him for the date, I immediately took out my checkbook to make a deposit. There was no way I was letting Sean go!

Sean Kim was the absolute dream photographer. Not only is he insanely talented as an artist (go see his website immediately; his work speaks volumes on its own), he was a calming presence for what was a [beautiful, but] long and hectic day. He ...
was patient with friends and family (who all could be quite demanding at times), as well as with me. He always had a smile and a kind word.
Sean also took charge in quiet, but decisive ways that made my life so much easier on the day of the wedding. For one, he took the initiative to get the number of the taxi driver we were using to drive us around NYC for the pre-ceremony photos and he arranged with the driver when and where we would be picked up and dropped off.
I was not even aware that he had done it until I had been bundled up into the taxi by my maid of honour and off we went for the photos. At the venue, he spoke with the event manager, again without my prompting, on his own to discuss where would be best to stage certain family portrait photos (which were very important to my mother!). He captured so many beautiful moments with my friends and family and of details of the entire wedding that allowed me and my husband to relive the entire day in its wonderfulness. It was so wonderful to see moments as well that we ourselves missed because we were hosting the event.
Organizing the actual day with him was also very smooth. He’s very open and is very knowledgeable about the New York City area, so he was able to make very good suggestions on where to go for both the engagement session and for the pre-ceremony photos.
In our engagement session, he also took his time to make us feel comfortable to “prime” us for the wedding day. This was particularly helpful for my husband, as he is very camera shy and dislikes taking photos in general. By the day of the wedding, Sean knew how to get the best out of the both of us for those perfect photos we were after.
His rates are very reasonable, especially for the high quality and artistic nature of his work.
I cannot recommend Sean Kim enough. He is extraordinarily talented and an absolute gentleman. He helped to make the day for me and my husband one of the happiest days of our lives and gave us photos we will always treasure.

We had the most beautiful day in the world and he got some of the most gorgeous shots of me getting ready, our bridal party, the church, our families and all the other little details that you want to capture.
Sean is very kind and very creative. He made us feel relaxed which is important to getting your best photos. We had fun and his clear direction helped us to get our best shoots. We have SO many photos that choosing just a 100 seem like a major task. We have it down to 150 and that wasn't easy. We had tons of wonderful photos that we spent days debating which will make our album. This is the kind of problem every couple should have!
It was an honor having Sean capture the best night and I hope another wonderful couple has this honor as well.

I highly recommend Sean Kim to anyone who is looking for an extremely talented photographer! Sean was the photographer at our wedding in September, and we loved working with him. We were 100% satisfied. His turn around time for our engagement s...

Sean was awesome from start to finish during our entire wedding process! Our engagement shoot went extremely well (even though the poor guy had to take photos outside dead of winter) and felt completely seamless. We had a lot of images that we ...
were able to use for our engagement announcements and printed a bunch to have in an album as well.
As for the wedding, he was even more incredible! He took great shots in such a seamless and timely manner that even our guests noticed! He captured great moments throughout the entire day and one of our guests ended up hiring him for their wedding! I can't say enough good things about Sean! You'd regret not hiring him to capture one of the most important events in your life.

First and foremost, Sean is an amazing photographer. He has a great eye for creative pictures and makes it so personal and different for each couple. You can tell just by looking at his website. Sean was such a pleasure to work with. My husband...
and I are not photogenic people in the slightest but Sean was able to capture so much of our happiness and made us look beautiful. Sean was very responsive and incredibly patient with all of my questions and concerns - I had a lot. He always had a smile on his face and is such a genuinely nice person. I felt so comfortable in front of the camera with him. My family and friends are obsessed with our engagement pictures and the teasers from our wedding. I have no doubt the wedding photos will be just as brilliant and I can not wait to see them. I can not say enough good things about working with Sean and would highly recommend him.

Of all the decisions that go into planning a wedding, choosing Sean as our photographer was the best one, by far. His photos are beyond incredible, and so many people have expressed that they look like they came right out of a bridal magazine. ...
His rate is also extremely affordable compared to everything else in NYC. Besides the quality of his work, he was also a joy to work with. He kept everyone on schedule, knew how to make everyone smile, and his calming influence really rubbed off on everyone else.

Sean is professional yet laid back; he's accomodating yet able to get the shots he wants; he's got a great eye and a great personality as well. He's an honest guy, and I found him to be of excellent value. Despite how busy wedding season is (...
I got married in July), he was able to get me my pictures back in a timely manner. My only regret is that things were running late on my wedding day so I didn't get enough time for photos, but he was flexible and tried his hardest to work quickly - and in the end, he was still able to get some really beautiful portraits of us (the bride&groom). He has an eye for lighting and really did a great job with our 'getting ready/candid' pictures. He took the time to learn about the couple, key members of the family, and the particulars about our wedding so that he could make sure to capture everything. He also took my engagement pictures and took the time to get some really beautiful shots around NYC - I'd highly recommend doing an e-shoot with him. He did a wonderful job and I'm so happy he was there for our special day! I hope to be able to work with him again down the line & for other events.

I had the ultimate nightmare search for a wedding photographer, but once I meet Sean and his team, my worries were over. Since I studied photography in college, I knew what to look for with lighting, focus and overall composition of photographs...
. After looking through numerous full albums from photographers(not just what is on their website) a friend showed me her full album from her wedding with Sean andI fell in love. Once we took our engagement photos and Mark and Sean got my husband to smile, I was provided with the best photographs I have of him in over 6 years we've been together. They were awesome with talking us through the outcome of beautiful photos and making us feel as if the camera wasn't even there. My parents said they were so polite and well mannered with everyone throuhout the entire wedding, and my bridal party put them through the ringer, since we are all a bit crazy and boozers. Now that I have seen many of my photos I can't help but looking at them over and over and the compliments haven't stopped either.
