What is better than "word of mouth" advertising from actual happy couples? Check out our client testimonials. Maybe it should be said that some words are worth a thousand pictures! Enough said!

We cherish your memories!

Our first priority is to preserve your precious wedding images. As our photographers are documenting your wedding day, the camera is saving your images on two separate independent memory cards, in case one card fails. If any part is going to fail the memory cards are the most likely point so we take great care in making sure that each camera has the second card writing on the spot as we shoot. We also backup all of our images in multiple locations, so you can rest assured that your images are safe and can be accessed anytime by the studio.

Customized Albums

Unlike most photo studios, you are able to select which images appear in the album. You will be able to communicate with the studio which photos you want, what retouching you want done, and how the layout will look like in the album. No other studio takes the time to make sure your album is perfect.

Location, Location, Location

Our 6000 sq ft. studio gallery is located near the 405, 91, 110, and 105 freeways in Historic Downtown Torrance close to many of the most picturesque locations in all of Southern California!

Vendors like us!

We are highly recommended by most of the local churches, hotels, banquet halls and just about anywhere they have weddings many of which you can find samples of on our blog.

Our studio gallery is one of the largest portrait studios in California!

In our over 30 years in business, we have photographed over 3,500 weddings and have grown to be one of the largest studios in California. Since we own our 6,000 sq. ft building outright, we are not governed by a lease. You have the security of knowing that you can build a long lasting relationship with great photographers that you can put your confidence in long after the wedding is complete. We are a full service studio with two camera rooms and a great locale with many portrait spots within walking distance of the studio. In addition to the weddings we also photograph 500 to 800 portraits a year. We photograph family portraits, babies, children, senior high portraits, headshots, photo restorations, and commercial photography.

Just as important as your locations and photography, planning is vital to having the picture perfect wedding day. All wedding packages include a detail planning session with Mr. Ikemoto, where he will guide you through to plan every step of the perfect wedding day.

The more organized your wedding is, the less stress you will have, the better images you will have. We want to know what is most important to you!
