My name is Gene Kang and I wedding photographer based in Southern California!

When I’m not looking through a lens, I prefer iced coffee over hot coffee. I think breakfast food is appropriate anytime of the day. I am a huge Lakers fan and have traveled to New York and Boston just to watch them. (They lost both games, so there’s that.) Even though I don’t travel as much as I want to, I love traveling and someday want to spend some years living in Europe! I have an Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix and her name is Juno! She loves fetch at at the beach and playing with dogs that are twice her size.

In 2012, I graduated California State University Long Beach with a degree in Political Science. After I graduated, I worked a few jobs I enjoyed, but the jobs did not fulfill the creative appetite I’ve always had. That all changed the day I decided to buy a professional camera. After taking pictures of landscapes, friends, and family for a brief amount of time, I had an opportunity to photograph a wedding. After that very first wedding I photographed, I became addicted to taking pictures of couples in love.

My goal is to keep your wedding day stress-free and natural. I want to capture your day without much posing or direction from me. I want my photos to capture genuine emotions on your wedding day.

If you like what you see, let’s grab some coffee to discuss more about your wedding day!
