Our wedding was so much better because of the Korin team. Photos were beautiful and James and Taylor were super helpful and pleasant to work with. We recommend them to all our friends!
— Anthony H. (Yelp)
 
Did our maternity photo shooting with them last Friday and already received all the pictures today! We are very happy with the out come. James and Taylor are super friendly and productive. They made us very comfortable of doing all kinds of poses. They’re good at finding locations and taking advantage of the beauty of nature. We got tons of incredible pictures within two hours. Highly recommended!!
— Tianyi X. (Yelp)
 
We visited 7 different venues before we found the spot where we wanted to get married. Not so with finding a photographer! James Korin and Taylor were the first people we interviewed and it was the best decision we made. Their photography was excellent and definitely lived up to our expectations. They were patient, understanding and accommodating. Our engagement pictures were beautiful and our wedding photos were timeless. Highly recommended!
— Talin W. (TheKnot)
 
James and Taylor were absolutely phenomenal! I appreciated the transparency on pricing and their willingness to work with us on the timeline. They even sent over a mock wedding photo timeline.
— Kelsey Z. (Wedding Wire)
 
Where to start? Working with James & Taylor was beyond such a wonderful experience!

Out of all of our vendors they were our favorites! From the very beginning with our first intro call, both James & Taylor made it a point to get to know us and knew exactly what to help us look for in the tiny details as we planned our wedding.
They took breathtaking photos of us during our engagement session and of our wedding day. They were genuinely happy for us. By taking the time to get to know us, we were able to be more relaxed with them which ultimately gave way for them to capture priceless candids and formal shots of us!

I didn’t want a photographer who wasn’t going to do more than family formals. I really wanted all of the details and special moments captured as well! James and Taylor made this happen!

On the day of the wedding they were complete pros! I didn’t have to worry about a thing with them! Not only did they capture everything, but they had our sneak peek shots to us before we left on our honeymoon which was not long after. Talk about white glove service!

Even after our wedding, we’ve remained in close contact with them as we finalized our wedding album details. They delivered a truly beautiful album to us that we will cherish forever.
When planning your wedding, pick your date, your venue, and your dream team photographer James & Taylor! It will be the best investment you can make throughout your entire wedding planning process because after the “I do’s” are said and the last guest goes home, these photos will be there as lasting memories forever. I can hardly wait for us to start a family one day so we can call them to get photos of our next family milestone!
— Kristina S. (TheKnot)
 
As a Wedding DJ in high demand, I work with a number of wedding vendors and photographers. James and Taylor are hands down my favorite Photographers to work with!
They are friendly work with, genuinely caring, and most importantly, very skilled at capturing amazing images.
When my clients ask me if I know any great photographers for their wedding, I mention James Korin Photography with the highest recommendation!
— Johnny S. (WeddingWire)
 
Amazing photographer and all around great guy. He took pictures of the adoption of my daughter...came early, stayed long and handled the whole courtroom like the pro he is. I don’t have any idea how he was in so many places so inconspicuously, but he intimately captured the entire event. My daughter and I will always have these phenomenal pictures that tell our story, and we are so grateful to him and the work he did for us!
— Jenn K. (Yelp)
 
Wow. I am blown away. What can I say about James Korin that isn’t already written in these reviews? James and Taylor, firstly, are super professional. James was very responsive to my inquiries, laying out details on what services they offer, the pricing options, and the timing that was available to me, and much more. He took time to talk through things with me without even having secured me as a customer; both him and Taylor, in fact, jumped on a call and talked through everything for 30 minutes. The best I got from other photographers was a half-ass yelp response with nothing more. Secondly, their pricing is very fair and reasonable. In fact, I intend on using them for many future shoots. This is because price and value/service is amazing. Lastly, during our maternity shoot, they were both just amazing human beings. Taylor made us feel at home, holding my wife’s hand as we walked through weird terrain at times, asking questions to get to know us, and more. Bottom line is that James and Taylor are amazing human beings but beyond that, they are professionals that deliver an excellent product at a fair price. The very same day of our shoot, James sent me 10+ photos already edited so I would have them for my wife’s baby shower the next day. And he did this all without even winking or uttering a word. It was just part of the service and experience they deliver. A++++++!!! 6 STARS!!!!
— Cyrus K. (Yelp)
 
James and Taylor did an amazing job at our wedding 11/17/2018. I’ve searched long and hard for photographers that would capture who my husband and I truly are. They outdid themselves and made the wedding process STRESS FREE. Being from San Diego, we communicated via video conference, email, and text. They made the process so smooth and were always there to answer all my questions and helped with all my last minute ideas. Taylor did an amazing job with putting together our day of timeline and when things did not go as plan (my miscommunication with our reception hall) she ensured that everything was taken care of and flowed perfectly! James took the most beautiful pictures and I can’t stop looking at them. They don’t feel like just our wedding photographers, but they truly feel like family. Thank you again for all your hard work and the most beautiful pictures, Daniel and I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out!
— Kathy M. (Yelp)
 
Your search for an amazing photographer ends here! My team had the pleasure of working alongside James and Taylor for a wedding and I am blown away by how professional and lovely they were from Start to finish. Not only were they organized and detail oriented , they made the process fun and easy. I would highly recommend James and Taylor to all who are reading this review. Email them ASAP!
— Joanna C. (TheKnot)
 
Honestly, James and Taylor are the most fun, kind and excellent people you can meet. They make any event they are shooting all the better. Oh, and on top of that, the memories James captures with his camera are only the best.
— Bryan L. (TheKnot)
 
I had the pleasure of working with James and Taylor last month on a wedding. I was doing the coordinating and of course james was the photographer, we had been in contact i believe for a year before the wedding where taylor and james made my job as coordinator so easy, they were extremely diligiant, prepared, enthusiastic and so so so kind. I have been around and worked with a lot of photographers and they tend to show up do there job and leave , But NOT with james and taylor they were involved in every aspect, they got to know all of us and really put so much effort into making everyone feel loved and at ease. The day of the wedding they captured everything beautifully and made sure every request was met , they worked amazing thru some unexpected change of itineraries and stayed until midnight making sure everything was captured and if anyone needed help cleaning up or anything in general. I truly can’t say enough Wonderful things about my experience working with them and i can say for a fact our bride and groom felt the same way. I hope You have so much success in the future as i know you do already and i hope to work along side you again.
— Stephanie H. (TheKnot)
 
While I was shopping around for photographers for my daughter’s wedding, God sent us Taylor and James. From the original phone contact months prior to the actual date of the wedding, Taylor and James handled the whole matter, alleviating any stress on our end. They met with us, my daughter and I, face-to-face in a cordial professional matter. We reviewed the venues, the church and reception hall etc. They had done their homework. They kept in contact during the whole process, the months leading up to the date. Their personalities and teamwork were admirable. Finally the end products, the photos themselves were fantastic. Lifetime memorable photos for us all. Great, great people.
— Fernando M. (TheKnot)
 
James and Taylor are amazing! Friendly,fun, but yet professional. We were so impressed and pleasantly surprised when we got to see all the photos. We absolutely recommend James Korin photography for any photo occasion! They were such a pleasure to work with.
— Daphne J. (TheKnot)
 
James and Taylor are the best!!! James’ great eye for the smallest details and Taylor’s feedback and positive attitude makes the best team for awesome pictures. I was a bit nervous because my fiancé hates spending time taking pictures but they were flexible and really went along with us and captured many pictures while also giving us our space. I also really appreciated Taylor’s help with creating our wedding timeline and helping us stay on schedule. Don’t know how things would have turned out with them. I definitely recommend for your special event!
— Vanessa B. (TheKnot)
 
They were awesome! They really took their work seriously and checked at the Church ahead of time at the time of day they will be taking pictures to know what the lighting will be like. They were so much fun and also totally aware and respectful of our mass. They knew the parts of the mass and how to be reverent during the mass so they can respect what was going on. They were cheerful and were awesome with getting the bridal party to have fun but to stay on track with taking pictures. I would totally recommend them! They helped make our day perfect.
— Yazmin G. (TheKnot)
 
We’ve been working with James on our annual family photo for years and have been extremely satisfied. He takes great care to get the best shots and will spend the time to make sure he produces A+ work. Highly recommend.
— Albert C. (Yelp)
 
These guys were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. We really can’t thank them enough for the incredible wedding photo shoot we had yesterday.

Taylor and James are highly professional and went way over and above to make our photo session easy, stress free and enjoyable. The communication was great from the very beginning and for the service we got, the price was very reasonable. They were so helpful, skillful and guided my husband and I (not usually big photo fans) into the right positions to take classic, classy shots that we will treasure forever. The locations that Taylor arranged for us were also beautiful and perfect for the look what we wanted.

So far we’ve only seen a few sneak peek shots so far, they they have far surpassed our expectations. The images are stunning and I cannot wait to see more!

Thank you so much guys. We really enjoyed our time with you and wouldn’t hesitate to book with you again or recommend you to friends and family.
— Laura C. (Yelp)
 
LOOK NO FURTHER! If you’re here on this yelp page then you have 110% come to the right place. My (now) husband and I spent a good while searching for a wedding photographer but none of the photos I was seeing really sat right with me. I can be terribly insecure and I’m not a fan of having my photo taken. So having photos that were natural vs overly posed was something that was a must for me. Then I came across James and his lovely wife Taylor. The photos I saw were exactly what I had been looking for! After our first meeting I knew we had to go with them no question about it and I wasn’t let down at all. Throughout the whole process they both made myself and then fiancé feel extremely comfortable. They were there to answer any questions and work to fit with the ideas we had. On the actual wedding day itself both went above and beyond and really made our dreams come true. I personally will be forever thankful to them for their help and for the beautiful photos. James truly has a gift with a camera and Taylor is a saint. You won’t be disappointed!
— Kristin B. (Yelp)
 
Absolutely perfect. They are professional and fun! Exceeding every expectation. I highly recommend!
— Cody M. (TheKnot)
 
Don’t hesitate—book your session with James Korin Photography soon! It was such a great decision to go with choosing James and Taylor to work with our family for a family photo shoot while on vacation. The pictures are BEAUTIFUL. But even more than that, the customer service was completely white glove treatment.

I am unfamiliar with the area and just knew I wanted beach pictures. I received a consultation call with James and Taylor and they wanted to understand my vision. They were so great and we discussed logistics, color coordinating, finding a great beach near the Airbnb I booked, it was great! They even wanted me to know the names of my family members so they could call them by name during the shoot.

On the day of the photo shoot, they definitely exceeded our expectations. James and Taylor were like long lost family friends who happened to have a professional photography business. It was such a special time with my family and we were able to get so many wonderful moments captured. The pictures are a perfect mix of candid and posed shots with some beautiful lighting and scenery, all while having a great time. Thanks a million to you both, we will cherish these forever!

Love,

The Yerkovich Family
— Torrie Y. (Yelp)

I just received my pictures and they are truly amazing. James is such a great photographer. Both James and Taylor have such amazing personalities and they treat you like family. I highly recommend using them.
— Tony Y. (Yelp)

James is a consummate professional!
— Fernando A. (Square)

I had the great opportunity to work with James on a Fashion shoot Downtown LA. Photoshoot turned out great and ran smoothly. His creativity and chemistry as a photographer was a great experience. I will be working with him again soon!
— Matthew W. (Yelp)

The best people ever!! They were able to get us in on short notice and took the most beautiful pictures at the beach. He’s really into candid and lifestyle shots which work great with kids!
— Avni G. (Yelp)

Amazing people great photos. Easy to work with, kind and definitely made everyone comfortable. Wonderful with animals also. The only place I would have photos done at.
— Melissa D. (Yelp)

Best photographer ever!!! Beyond just being an amazing human being, his work and professionalism were excellent. We did a family photo shoot at the beach with James. Of course, Taylor came along as well at no additional cost and she was awesome with her creative suggestions and entertaining our two-year-old to make him smile and laugh. The photos were absolutely beautiful and we truly enjoyed working with James and Taylor. Would do it again in a heartbeat without any second thoughts and highly highly recommend them!!
— Anand G. (Yelp)

James and Taylor are truly amazing. My (then) fiance was camera shy but when we met them for our engagement photos they immediately put us at ease. Our pictures for the engagement shoot were exactly what I wanted! The wedding shoot was even better and our biggest problem was choosing favorites because there are just SO many good ones! Taylor is the sweetest most comfortable person and James is kind, encouraging and professional. You can tell that they love what they do and they do it so well! I would recommend them to anyone and everyone and already have!
— Serena & Josh S. (TheKnot)

Look No further! I am beyond grateful for James Korin photography. They are truly amazing and bring such a positive happy vibe with them. They truly made my wedding magical and got such amazing photos and that was my biggest thing I wanted out of my wedding was amazing photos. If I could go back and do it all over again I would hire them in a heart beat!
— Krystal & Matt M. (TheKnot)

James did an amazing job with both our engagement and wedding pictures. Him and Taylor make the perfect team. They kept us all on track the day of the wedding to make sure and capture everything. Our family can’t stop raving about the photos. We are so glad to have found them!
— Juliana & Julio E. (TheKnot)

We had a wonderful experience with James and Taylor from James Korin Photography! Getting in touch with them and setting up an appointment was very easy - all done through email, including signing the contract. They were extremely flexible about time (working around our toddler’s nap time!) and location (Malaga Cove Library - my request). Taylor was fantastic with our almost-two-year-old. We all had a lot of fun, and by the end, the Munchkin was relaxed enough to walk and sit by himself for a few shots. I highly recommend them!
— Rebecca G. (Facebook)

Absolutely amazing experience with James and Taylor. The flexibility they showed as well as the ease of the shoot was only outdone by their great personalities and calming nature. Definitely a great find
— Ajith M. (Yelp)

When it comes to professional photographers, you’ll not be disappointed with the quality, professionalism nor the attentiveness of James Korin Photography. What attracted us was the photography packages which were very competitive for what we were looking for, and frankly, what we wanted was a perfect fit to what they were offering.

Our interactions with them via email, on the phone and in person, was consistent, which is a huge thing to my wife and I. From the moment they arrived, until the end of the event, you really didn’t notice them, until it was time for the portrait shots, and what they bring to the event, is something you expect to see during a G.Q. photo shoot... all the bells and whistles were on hand to make our lifetime memories perfect in every way.

Super friendly, extremely professional, on time, affordable for what you want, what else could you ask for in a photographer?

We are over the moon with what they did for us, and I think you would too!
— Geoffrey S. (Yelp)

I am usually not the kind to write reviews and here I am writing my first yelp review eva ! I am super impressed with James and Taylor ! Both made my kids feel at ease and got them to actually pose in pictures! Tough job !! James and Taylor were super friendly and professional. Delivered pics ahead of time and love the quality of the pictures.
— Veena N. (Yelp)

Both my wife and I want say that having James & Taylor be part of our special day was the BEST selection we could have made. Very PROFESSIONAL, their personality made us feel comfortable and like family since day 1. We LOVE the GREAT QUALITY of our wedding photos and the way they captured every special moment we wouldn’t have thought we would have. So thank you James & Taylor we definitely look forward in doing business with you again in the future.
— Mr. & Mrs. Bertadillo (TheKnot)

Since meeting James and Taylor, we knew we found the right people to take our wedding ceremony and photos. Everything flowed effortlessly and my husband and I didn’t worry about a anything throughout because they were on point with the short time frame we had to capture so much. James made everyone in my family feel comfortable. Taylor went above and beyond helping me with the timeline, my dress, reminding me of what pictures still needed to be taken. The day the wedding was a whirlwind and so having Taylor there made it so much calmer and easy. They helped make my day more fun and most importantly was the photos were incredible. Thanks to both! With love
— Debbie & Jacob (TheKnot)

James and Taylor were amazing to work with. They checked on us regularly, leading up to our special day. They even came to our wedding rehearsal to walk through everything with us. Having them be apart made this day even more magical AND we love every last one of our photos!! Such quick turn around and super responsive at all times. Thank you again for everything.
With love
— Joshua and LyNeeka McC. (TheKnot)

Where to start? We could not have made a better choice for our wedding photographer. James and Taylor are exceptional and went above and beyond to make sure our day went as smooth as possible. They made sure to accommodate all of our special picture requests and made us feel comfortable during both our engagement and wedding photo shoots. James and Taylor are some of the nicest people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and I’m sure we’ll be friends for a long long time. You will not regret allowing them to be a part of your special day.
— Brian G. (Yelp)

James was amazing! He was professional and really took his time to ensure we got the right shots. He was friendly and really made us feel at ease during the shoot. The pictures came out great. Amazing value—it was a great price for the amount of time he spent and the number of shots we received.
— Sandra G. (Thumbtack)

The BEST photography from the coolest team! James Korin made my day awesome!! Simply incredible!
— Marlene H. (Facebook)

Very, very HAPPY with both quality and customer service!!!
— Sandi S. (Squareup.com)

Wonderful experience for a family photo shoot. 4 little children under the age of 8, and 4 adults all had wonderful time. James and Taylor were very professional, pleasant, respectful of our wishes and just a total joy to be around. We definitely will be hiring them in the future. We have found our family photographer!!!
— Alla M. (Thumbtack)

James & Taylor are amazing! We had a photo shoot scheduled for my website. We let Taylor and James know we wanted a casual, fun and kid-friendly vibe, but also to keep a professional edge. James & Taylor nailed it! They are very easy to work with and made the session fun. They offer suggestions and model the look ahead of time to help with getting the right shot. Highly recommended! We’ll be back for more!
— Annie T. (Google)

"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)


"@jameskorinphotography thanks for photo session pictures came out great. Your work speaks for itself. I also wanted to say thank you very much for your positive energy."  -- Tony P. (Instagram)


"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."

                                                                                 -- Carrie C. of Asian Business League of Southern California (Yelp)


"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)
