  • I seriously can't say enough good things Irene. She was wonderful to work with every step of the way. I was nervous about booking a wedding photographer because having beautiful wedding photos was so important to me. Her work is gorgeous and she was highly recommended by a friend, so we took the plunge. About 15 minutes into our engagement session, I knew we had made the right call. She is seriously one of the best people you will ever meet - she is talented as well as kind, and treats you like a friend while still being incredibly dependable and professional. All the things you want in the person you are entrusting to capture your once-in-a-lifetime day. We could not be more pleased with our wedding photos - they are STUNNING! The only problem is now we can't decide which of her amazing pictures we're going to hang on our walls. Thank you Irene for your amazing work! We are so grateful.

  • Irene came recommended to us from another couple that previously worked with her and she surpassed every thing we thought it would be to work together. Our beautifully imagined July wedding of 75 became unfeasible when the pandemic hit. Irene was the most communicative vendor we were working with. She reached out to us almost immediately and offered us options and support in making the decision to move forward with an intimate elopement. I am not exaggerating when I say nothing went according to plan. On the day of our elopement Irene was a calming force. Her level of expertise afforded me the ability to completely trust that she was guiding me and my husband to look our best. We cannot recommend Irene enough. If you are lucky enough to be able to book her you will not be disappointed.

  • So happy we went with Irene for our photos. She was super professional and easy to work with, always super prompt to respond to any questions I had along the way. Our photos turned out better than we ever could’ve imagined and would most definitely recommend her for anyone looking for great, not overly edited, timeless wedding photos!

  • If you are still looking for a wedding photographer, look no further! IJ Photo is phenomenal! We met Irene at the Seattle Wedding Show. It was a brief encounter among the many other vendors, but once we were home, we pulled out information on every photographer and checked out their website. We were quickly able to determine what we wanted: well lit and exposed photos with editing that wasn’t overdone and didn’t look like it had instagram-like filters applied to it. IJ Photo stole the show! Irene’s photo quality is excellent. We had an initial meeting with her to go over what we were wanting for during our big day, and she completely understood what we were looking for. We met with her one more time at our venue a few weeks before the wedding to get a feel for the property. She asked us all kinds of questions to get to know our schedule for the day and helped us plan out when/where we would be taking pictures. When wedding day was here, she and her second shooter, Lydia (who is a... Read more

  • When my wife and I started planning for our wedding, we were looking for a very specific kind of photographer. We're both detail-oriented, and not super comfortable as the center of attention. We met Irene at a wedding expo, and chose IJ Photo due to the described "photojournalistic" nature of her work — we could do our own thing, the way we wanted, and trust Irene to capture the moments. She worked with us to plan everything out in all the detail we wanted, and made sure that we could enjoy our wedding without worrying about making a big spectacle of the photos; we just relaxed! She also took care of our engagement photos, and followed up after the wedding with a beautiful slideshow to review and lay-flat album (as part of our chosen package). I'd recommend Irene in a heartbeat to anyone who needs event photos done. She put us at ease, was great to coordinate with, and couldn't have come up with better photos.

    Thank you, Tim! I'm glad you chose me and that you felt comfortable. I loved working with you both. It was a joy! I hope you love your wedding photos for years to come.

  • I can't recommend Irene highly enough. She is incredible. Professional Personna: You have to be comfortable with your photographer, because they will see everything! I am super awkward meeting people, so when I first met Irene I was my normal anxious self that doesn't always gel with people. But what set her apart from every other photographer I spoke with was that she listened to everything I said I wanted. Our initial meeting was not filled with "look how good I am," it was Irene responding to what I said I was looking for and then showing us examples. She prompted us to ask questions, and she gave us information that we just didn't know enough to ask about. She wasn't pushy at all, just the kindest person and very open: she wants you to know exactly what you're getting. Once we did our engagement shoot with her, I was completely in love with her- she knows how to make you feel comfortable, and she is very patient. She probably fielded a dozen or more questions from me the week of ou... Read more

  • I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding photographer! Not only is Irene an amazing photographer, but she is a very patient, caring, and understanding person. Every step of the way, Irene did exactly what we needed without us asking. Before the wedding: * We found Irene’s booth at the Seattle Wedding Show, drawn in by her beautiful setup and photo books. We provided her with our contact info and ultimately setup a meeting to talk more at a coffee shop. During this initial meeting, she answered all our questions, showed us more samples of her work, and talked through pricing details. *1 month prior to the wedding, we met with Irene at the venue, talked through the shot list + timeline, and identified the best location for different photos. Day of wedding: *Irene arrived on time and quickly went to work capturing detail photos, making sure to stay out of the way. I was running behind in getting ready, but Irene adjusted seamlessly to keep all photos on track. She was more t... Read more

  • IJ Photo is amazing! The one unique piece of advice I read when choosing a photographer was: choose someone that you can feel comfortable around because you will be spending most of the wedding day with them. I am so glad I chose IJ Photo, I truly enjoyed working with them, she made everything feel so natural and easy. Not to mention the pictures were amazing and captured every moment and emotion throughout the whole day. I could not have asked for a better experience!

  • Words cannot describe the AMAZING job Irene did with our photographs... Since the moment we saw her work we fell in love with style and attention to detail. We had a crazy vision for our engagement session, we described it to Irene and she turned our vision into a reality. The wedding photos did not disappoint, they are truly magical. Irene did an incredible job at capturing those special moments between us and our loved ones. She is not only professional but she is also fun, caring, sweet and just makes you feel so comfortable. If you are debating about choosing a photographer, we can guarantee that you will not be disappointed with Irene's work. She definitely deserves more than 5 stars.

  • Irene is an amazing photographer! We knew we made the right choice after our engagement photo session. She made us feel so comfortable and she had great ideas on where to take our photos! She captured everything we were hoping for. We also loved that she was open to having our puppies in our engagement photos :) Our wedding day was seriously the happiest day of our lives and Irene captured every happy moment and made it so magical! We couldn't have asked for a better photograph and everyone should use her!

  • Irene was 5 stars when it comes to wedding photographers. She was beyond professional but also very fun to be around, which made the experience that much better. She captured all our beautiful memories so we can cherish them for a lifetime and you can't ask for better quality or value than that. She's very creative and will take the most stunning photos that wouldn't think were possible but she makes it happen (even if she has to get dirty for the perfect picture ??). I would obviously recommend her to anyone and you won't be disappointed!

  • Irene is the best! We met her at the Seattle Wedding Expo and she was the first person we saw when we walked through the door. She was immediately engaging and we were impressed by her great personality. She is laid back but very professional and, after doing a walk-through at our venue, we were pretty sure we wanted to book her. She put together a great timeline for taking our wedding photos and really helped to keep everything moving on the Big Day. We received our photos about a month after our wedding and they were stunning. I don't have the words to describe how well they turned out because I am still speechless. She captured so much love and happiness in her photos and our friends and family love how well they turned out. She was also a lot of fun to work with and made my husband and I smile all along the way. Nothing but good things to say and I wholeheartedly recommend that you should consider IJ Photo for your wedding!!!

  • Having amazing wedding photos was one of our top priorities (right behind getting married), and we couldn't be happier with the photos Irene took for our engagement and wedding! Neither my husband nor I like getting our picture taken, so there was a fair bit of anxiety going into the engagement shoot. Irene made the whole process simple and enjoyable, and she was able to capture pictures that I think truly embody the way I feel about my husband. The day of the wedding Irene and her assistant, Kate, had the same calming effect as during the engagement shoot. They were able to take an experience that normally causes us anxiety (having pictures taken) and turn it into a truly enjoyable experience. And the resulting photos are absolutely stunning. Looking back at the final pictures it seems that all the memories I have about the wedding day were beautifully captured. I especially love how the vibrant colors in Irene's work evokes such strong emotions. We have also received seemin... Read more

  • Irene did a fantastic job photographing our wedding! From initial contact to post wedding, she was friendly, responsive and super easy to work with. She made things very easy on our end and was flexible when meeting with us. We were able to meet at our wedding venue pre wedding to check out our favorite shots and photo locations to make our wedding day run smooth. On our wedding day, Irene worked well with our videographer to ensure that we would get quality photos and videos. She got all of the shots we asked for and was so great in working with each of our families, remaining calm and placing people where they needed to be in a respectful manner. We were on schedule on the wedding day which was great. I received numerous compliments from family and friends about Irene and how friendly she was and also how they didn't really notice her during the wedding. Irene designed our wedding book and it is amazing! Since we were able to go over it with her before she ordered it, we wer... Read more

  • Wedding photography can be expensive but the memories that the photos hold are priceless and working with Irene has been worth every penny. Irene and her assistant were able to capture everything we wanted on our wedding day and more, we couldn't be happier with how the photos turned out. Not only is she an amazing photographer but she is friendly, professional and a true pleasure to work with, we highly recommend IJ Photo!
