Headshot Photography

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!

Portrait Photography

I'm so happy about the quality of the photos Soo took of our family. It was our first time getting family photos, and we are very pleased with our decision to retain Soo. He took a combination of composed and impromptu shots of us and our kids at the Chicago Botanic Garden. He listened to our requests but at the same time used his professional judgment to make the most of the setting. I was also amazed by how many great photos he was able to take in a relatively short amount of time. Kids can run out of patience, so his efficiency kept our kids engaged in the photo shoot. I highly recommend him.

Headshot Photography

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.

Headshot Photography

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

Each type of shoot comes with a certain amount of studio credit that can go towards picture albums, wall art, or prints.
