TESTIMONIALS:

"INCREDIBLE experience!!! Way beyond our expectations!! 
My husband and I live in Fort Lauderdale,FL and were planning our wedding to be in Manhattan Beach, CA. As you can imagine, planning a wedding remotely isn't very easy and adds A LOT of stress to an already stressful situation! I had called and talked to a bunch of different photographers and videographers. But when I finally talked to Sam, I knew he was the one! He was extremely easy to talk to, very quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had, (which meant the world to me when working from so far away) and was always happy and relaxed, which relaxed me and made me less stressed. Not to mention the prices are more than fair for the AMAZING work Sam and his team do!! 

The day of the rehearsal, we also had Sam come to capture some of those amazing moments that you never want to forget, as well. Sam just has an incredible eye. He misses nothing! Extremely professional and such a pleasure to work with! I knew for SURE that day after meeting and working with Sam, that we chose the right guy!! Then the day of the wedding, I couldn't have been more pleased with their punctuality and professionalism, and yet the light-heartedness that Sam and team brought to my day! Not to mention the FABULOUS photos I've seen of myself that day! Im never happy with photos of myself!! As a bride, you hope to have those magical moments to savor forever!! And now I have them!! Couldn't be happier with our decision and urge others to choose Sam Lim Studios for their special event!! You won't regret it!! HIGHLY recommended!!!" - Janice G.

 

"I LOVE THEM I LOVE THEM I LOVE THEM I LOVE THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Ok seriously.... I love them!! HAHA 

Sam and his team seriously go above and beyond your expectations. Not only are they extremely professional, but they know how to make you feel so special and like family all at the same time. From the minute we started shooting our engagement photos, I fell in love. He just knows how to make you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. He directs and guides you, tells you exactly what to do.. everything just felt so effortless.. The day before my wedding, I needed a photographer last minute, and he even managed to squeeze me in with TWO other shoots scheduled for that day. It's something he didn't have to do, but that's what I'm saying by he makes you feel special and like family. He was even able to make my 93 year old grandma laugh in the photos!! This will be the first family photo we EVER got of my grandmother actually laughing!!! The whole team is so sweet and patient. The morning of the wedding day was a complete disaster and everything got delayed, but the whole team was so reassuring and sooo patient and they were so on point that we were even able to take a 30 minute break before the ceremony started. I really don't know what else to say except that they're amazing! You just have to experience them for yourself.. I can confidently say that he'll be our go to photo man for the rest of our lives (or at least until he retires.. hehe) By the end of the night, Sam was already like an older brother to me. My hubby and I will NEVER let him go!!!!! xD 

To Sam and Team- Thank you sooo much for everything! I can't wait to see my video and photos. I already know they're gunna be amazing and that's what's making the anticipation so much harder!!! You guys made our day so memorable and we are truly so thankful for that! We'll see you guys soon!!! Next is our baby pictures!!! =))) 

WE LOVE YOU GUYSSSSSS!!!!!" - Irene L.

 

"We heart Sam Lim and his crew!!! 

First of all, wedding planning can get really really addictive, especially picking the photographer as there are so MANY websites and packages. One of the things I realized early on is that very few photographers actually have professional training. The photos looked awesome on the website, but they are generally post-production'ed in photoshop. I was interested in finding a professionally trained photographer who executed perfect pictures all the time. 

I found Sam through a wedding magazine and just instantaneously loved his "eye". Like all girls, I use to read Vogue/Vanity Fair obsessively and have always adored the the Annie Leibowitz portraits. I saw so much of that with Sam's photography and composition. Another thing that really impressed me is how amazing his COLOR photos are -- I always felt that it is easier to shoot an above average BW photo compared to a color photo (don't stone me aspiring photogs!) 

Sam was the second and last photographer we interviewed, he had an amazing set-up and very reasonable prices. Our E-session was wonderful, but it wasn't until the wedding that I realized how amazing he was. 

He arrived on time, was entirely professional, put both myself and my husband at ease. We had a jam packed wedding day with First Look, Ceremony, Bridal party, formal portraits, Paebaek (Korean wedding ceremony) and Reception. He and his team made the process effortless and proved to be fabulous companions on that day. I have never seen my mom and dad more beautiful and at ease then they were with Sam (which is saying a lot). Also they brought two beautiful, HUGE Apple monitors and did same day editing that totally wowed our guests. 

And now, barely 2 and half weeks later, we have already received proofs, all 1800 of them and I would say 90 percent of them are spectacular. He (upon my request) shot portraits for most of our friends, they have love it so much that a lot of them have ask for reprints and have made it their facebook profile pics. 

OVERALL AMAZING, book an appointment now, you will NOT be disappointed." - Helen M.
