"It was a fantastic experience working with James and Taylor! They shot our wedding and showed true eye on detail, professionalism, and blended in nicely during the entire day. They even helped set up when I was rushed the morning of decorating our venue! Our photos are beautiful and really capture the emotion and memory of that day. We also received a sneak peek of a few photos straight to our phones the day of, and received an online album within the following next week. You can feel assured that James Korin Photography will deliver on your special day or special event." -- Linda B. (Yelp)
"What a stroke of luck I had when I discovered James Korin Photography on Thumbtack a couple of weeks before my daughters wedding! I was very dissatisfied with a photographer I had engaged months previous so I was a little wary finding another. As soon as I contacted James, Taylor, his assistant, took care of any worries I might have beforehand. They arrived early and fit right in to the festivities. I could not have been happier during the whole event and I received many complements on their service, during this very important event. They were very responsive to any ideas we might have and gave many good suggestions during the whole event. Afterwards everyone enjoyed going through the many sweet photos they captured during the wedding. It was a delight doing business with them and I would recommend them to anyone who wants a worry free wedding!" -- Barbara H. (Yelp)

"As the Association Director of the Asian Business League of Southern California, we hired James to be our photographer for our annual awards dinner. This is the 5th time I've produced this event, so I have had experience with other photographers and it was easy to see the difference in responsiveness, professionalism, and great photos with James.
He arrived early at the venue early with his assistant and equipment and immediately began setting up. He checked in with me to double check the schedule of the event and for the photos that we wanted. I saw him work the room in a very friendly, courteous, and respectful manner.
We received the photos from James less than a week after the event and we were astounded by the photos! The venue was very dark and we were uncertain of how the photos would come out. However, we were pleasantly surprised by the bright, crisp photos that James produced. Not only did the photos look great, but James captured multiple aspects of the event from the outside and inside of the venue, the variety of food, decor details, group photos, candid photos, and every detailed moment of the event that we put so much effort and time working on.
Again, having produced this event for the 5th time, James' set of photos was by far the best that we've had! I highly recommend James and am looking forward to working with him again."

"First and foremost let me say I have shot with many photographers in my life-time from all types of places around the world. I can be super particular and truly value professionalism. With that being said when I decided to take maternity photos for my son's nursery and baby shower I knew I needed someone that was both professional and could work together with me instead of just snapping a few photos and treating me like another client number.
I never got to take maternity photos with my first child, so this particular type of shoot was actually all new to me. I had seen a few photos on line of the relaxed look I wanted, and knew I didn't want anything too done up or corny. We decided to go for a very clean and relaxed jean look in front of a white back drop, super simple at my house. James was on time and ready to shoot when I was. I totally appreciate being punctual, especially right now in my state of pregnancy. James made me feel extremely comfortable even my fiance jumped in! We were able to view the photos every so often so that I knew what I liked and didn't like. I thought that was great, because you never know how you are coming out in the pictures you're taking. We totally worked together and had great communication which is SO important. I don't really know if I have ever felt so comfortable with a photographer.
I will absolutely be using James Korin Photography again! I have already pre-booked him for my after baby/infant shoot and I am so excited! Thanks so much JKP, I can't wait until next time!" -- Morgan S. (Yelp)
"If you're considering hiring a photographer, you can't go wrong with James. He took pictures of our family reunion during the holidays, and we couldn't be more pleased with the results. James was very professional, yet had an easy going manner which helped us all to be relaxed during our shoot. He and Taylor were just warm and delightful people to meet, let alone work with. They were generous with their time, patient with our large group, and delivered many beautiful pictures for our family to treasure. I would definitely recommend him without hesitation." -- Sue Y. (Yelp)
"I highly recommend James Korin. He took pictures for our family which included 6 adults and 4 children. With this many people he was able to capture so many great pictures. Not only is James talented, he is very pleasant and easy going. Taylor (his assistant) was also wonderful. I would definitely use him again!" -- Sharon L. (Yelp)
"James is a wonderful & professional photographer! I was more than pleased with the overall experience & the quality of the photos! James & Taylor are very kind & flexible with their time! I highly recommend them!” -- Imelda M. (Yelp)
"Our family had an amazing experience with James and would strongly recommend them for any occasion. They took the time to scope out a convenient venue and also had areas picked out for optimal lighting and family poses. Their attention to detail was incredible and they also did an awesome job on the editing.” -- Steve C. (Yelp)
"James took fabulous pictures of my family which we used for our annual holiday cards. He has a very good eye for color, settings, and background layouts. He is very professional yet very easy going and will patiently work with you. I definitely recommend and will use him again.” -- Craig H. (Yelp)
"I haven't had a professional photo shoot in years. The last pro photo shoot must've been over 25 years ago with my family in a studio. And I've never had a pro photo shoot outdoors before. So I decided to get some shots taken for family and friends and also to use for my Facebook and Yelp profile.
I found James Korin Photography and checked out his website. I was impressed with the photos on his website and decided to give him a try. James was very professional and friendly. He and his assistant Taylor made me so comfortable throughout the entire process. James is awesome to work with and he knows what angles and lighting works best. I was pleasantly surprised on the number of photos that turned out great. He made an un-photogenic subject to look great.
My current Yelp profile with the sunglasses was taken by James. If you're looking for a great photographer at a great price, look no further. Give James a call and go for the Yelp deal!" -- Ty D. (Yelp)
"Very friendly photographer, making us (including my camera shy husband) very comfortable. And amazing results. The pictures and colors are vivid and beautiful. We highly recommend them." -- Donna Y. (Thumbtack)
