I needed a professional headshot for my new company's internal social network. My time range to get it in was very short. Soo messaged me back in under 24 hours and I had a photo shoot set up for the next day (weekend). I normally hate having pictures taken of me but I actually enjoyed my time with Soo. We immediately got to work with some options and backgrounds I wanted and we were done quickly due to the overall efficiency of Soo's process. The photos turned out great and I am very happy I stumbled upon Soo's business. Also, the physical studio itself is great. I would highly recommend him for a headshot!

The atmosphere was welcoming and professional. I went to get headshots done but learned that he offered much more. He does family photos and weddings as well. Pricing was incredible and I’ll definitely use him in the future

My session with Soo was very at ease and quick/efficient (in a good way). I was in need of a new headshot and he guided me through the session as well as when we were reviewing the photos so I could select my favorites. Booking was very easy as well, they answered my questions before I arrived and the studio space is very open and fun.

Very nice and professional studio. I was able to get quality photos taken quickly. Very easy to find north side location and they were very responsive. They also consulted me on the best dress color options to enhance my professional photos.
