Kim is one incredibly talented individual and we are often in awe scrolling through her Insta images but even more importantly to us, is that she is genuine. I mean truly genuine, she will tell it like it is, she is kind and often helpful to her fellow wedding vendors, and she shows her clients so much love and respect. These are exactly the qualities we look for in choosing vendors to recommend
We asked Kim to tell us a litle bit about herself and how she found herself driven to photography.
Kim: “I spent a dozen years in corporate America making dreams come true for college students seeking their destination. And yet, somehow, I had neglected my own journey – to see where my lifelong love of photography could lead. It was only after the birth of my first child that I decided to take a chance and create Kim-Trang Photography. From the very first wedding I shot, I knew I was onto something. And ever since then, I haven’t looked back.
I’ve been blessed to have my images be recognized and published in Martha Stewart Weddings, Style Me Pretty, The Knot Magazine, Love Inc., Catalyst Wedding Co, and Aisle Society. But beyond that, I’m the one that can pick up a conversation with anyone and people will comment on how it feels as if they are catching up with a long lost friend they’ve known for years. Every couple has a remarkable story that is uniquely theirs. My hope is to have the honor to capture the beginning of your legacy to be shared by many generations to come.”
What Kim says about being able to pick up a conversation with anyone is SO completely accurate. When I first met Kim we were in a room of other people and I immediately noticed her strength, poise and bright eyes. When she introduced her herself to me I was instantly connected with her energy and felt like I could talk to her for hours.
And then I did, over and over. I. because it’s super fun ( I know you will agree) and 2. Because it’s so important for me to really really get to know my vendor friends. It’s the only way I can really make the best matches for my couples.
What else can I tell you about her…….. She’s a mom of 3 beautiful and energetic boys that keep her on her toes, she often drops some fantastic, super deep life advice and not even realize just how profound it is in the moment, she’s stylish, an amazing listener, a big dreamer with the gumption to back it up, and always dedicated to expanding and growing her skills.
In case I left anything out how about 5 fun questions with Kim:
Q: What is your favorite part of your work?
Kim: Connecting with my couples and being invested in their life, not JUST for their wedding day. Watching them hit life milestones and knowing that their future family’s fingers will grace over these photos is what brings me joy. I do it for them.
Q: What keeps you motivated?
Kim: Being able to witness someone’s “Best Day Ever!” After working in HR in corporate for over a dozen years in NYC, I experienced good and bad days. But with my work now, I am humbled and grateful to be standing alongside a couple as they get to experience their BEST day.
Q: What is your dream vacation?
Kim: Bora Bora!
Q: Your favorite breakfast?
Kim: Avocado smash with bacon and an over easy egg on French bread
Q: You don’t leave home without what? (Besides the obvious; keys, phone e.t.c)
Kim: Lip balm
