About me

The Mou Studio’s philosophy – it’s never just about taking pretty pictures. For me, it’s about capturing your life moments, your story. This is why I always sit down with my clients over coffee/tea and get to know them. Everyone has a story to tell and each story is as unique as the next. Whether I’m joining you on a date for your engagement shoot or in the background as you exchange vows, know that I’m purposefully capturing your memories. I am there to guide my clients through their big day. I’ve photographed over 50 weddings so it gives me great insight into what to expect and how to capture your big day with a photography plan in mind.

We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone. Your big day will go by in a blur and you may not remember every detail. My mission and passion is to encapsulate those moments in a beautiful package for you to look back on and enjoy.

Hi, My name is Ted Kim, I’m the photographer behind The Mou Studio.

I’ve been photographing weddings in Calgary and internationally for 7 years. After graduating with my photography degree from the Alberta College of Art & Design, I had the amazing opportunity to move back to South Korea to work at a famous wedding photography studio. I decided to return to Calgary to start my photography studio and have been  shooting weddings and lifestyle since.

I am a husband and father to a darling little girl, soon to be two darling daughters. I enjoy having coffee/breakfast and cooking in my spare time. When I’m not busy photographing, you can find me spending time with my family.

Read on to see what my clients say about me.


Ted @ The Mou Studio is phenomenal.

We were particularly attracted to his artistic style, and wanted a photographer that was able to produce timeless work that wasn't the run-of-the-mill, cheesy style. Ted made us feel at ease, and was extremely friendly and accommodating. He delivered many high resolution, retouched photos that we are extremely proud of. We are excited about sharing them via our wedding website.

The Mou Studio are very fairly priced. I'd even go as far as to say that they should charge more, as their work really stands out from the competition.

If we weren't getting married across the other side of the world, we would absolutely have used Ted for our wedding photos.



I met Ted at the Wedding fair in Calgary. When I saw his work, I decided with no doubt that I work with him for our wedding pictures. I really love his soft and sweet photography style. Ted was really easy to work with; he's very experienced and really wanted to know what we wanted, and our tradition as well. He's also very easygoing and was willing without hesitation to accommodate my requests. I really recommend working with him if you like it simple, straight forward and no hassle.



Ted did such an amazing job with both our engagement session and our wedding photos. I was really worried about not being able to open up to the camera, and that our pictures would look awkward. Ted really helped with coaching us to be more comfortable with being photographed. On our wedding day, unfortunately it rained the whole day, and was very wet during our couples session between the ceremony and reception. This is any bride's worse fear, but Ted helped to make the most of it. Our rainy pictures turned out beautiful, Ted has really admirable work ethic as he braved through the downpour to help us get our shots. He also stayed late when our reception plans ran behind schedule, and he was completely dedicated to capturing all of the important moments. Also as others have mentioned, the pricing for the quality of work is outstanding. Compared to other photographers, excellent value for what you pay for.

We love our pictures, and are so grateful to have all of these priceless memories to look back on for several years later. Ted is very passionate about his work, and it definitely shows. Thank you for all of your hard work Ted!!



Very professional. He captured the moment that I want and over my expectations. He is so great to help us to keep our memories for the big day.The most impressed me is the moment that he climbed to the higher point of taking a photo for us and the guests. And there is one more thing that when he is gonna to take some pictures, he is calm and quiet when I am shy in the first, which makes me feel comfortable. When I adapted to his existence, he would relax us to make the happy picture. Honestly, he is so careful to watch us, and try his best to relax us.
