ABOUT KENNY

Kenny Kim has always been fascinated by the visual arts, especially the connection between art and photography. This passion led him to study graphic design at the University of Illinois where he also became a skilled web designer.  In 2003, Kenny opened his own design studio, and it was during this time he realized that the greatest outlet for his artistic expression and technical skills would be through his passion for photography.


With the launch of Kenny Kim Photography in 2006, his vision instantly resonated with his audience, and Kenny Kim Photography very quickly grew into a nationally recognized studio. Kenny has shot over 120+ weddings in locations throughout the United States, Mexico, the Caribbean and in Italy. His clients include various local and national celebrities such as Yul Kwon (winner of Survivor a popular CBS TV Series), actress Salma Hayek & Henri Pinault and NBA athlete Carmelo Anthony & Lala Vasquez (commissioned as the second shooter by international celebrity photographer Bob Davis). He has also been contracted to photograph the University of Illinois sporting team events and various professional sporting and celebrity events featuring Wimbledon, RCA Open, David Foster, Andrea Bocelli, John Legend, Three Doors Down, Chris Tomlin and more.
