After graduating with my photography degree from the Alberta College of Art & Design, I started my photography business in 2011 and have been capturing weddings and lifestyle in Calgary and internationally ever since. I am a husband and father to a darling little pumpkin pie girl and recently we added a new family member who we nickname cherry pie girl. When I’m not busy photographing, you can find me spending time with my family. I am a singer only in my house. Playing music with my two little girls while they are into the music is one of my favourite moments. I am a chef and my favourite area of the house is the kitchen. Finding good recipes and creating my own recipes is something I really enjoy. Watching people enjoying my dishes is a happy moment for me. One of my favourite quote is from P.T Barnum who said that the noblest art is that of making others happy.
Hi, My name is Ted Kim, I’m the photographer behind The Mou Studio.
The Mou Studio’s philosophy
Everyone has a different personality, style and story to tell and each is as unique as the next. Photography is not only about taking pictures. For me, it’s all about capturing your life moments, story and emotions. I want to create photographs that are not only timeless but works of art. While I am physically and emotionally there to guide you through your day, I want you to live in the moment so think of me as a background. I take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone. Your day will go by in a blur and you may not remember every detail. My vision and passion is to encapsulate those moments in a beautiful package for you to look back on and enjoy.
Would you like to get a return ticket? Contact me to get started, I will make sure to respond in a timely manner.
Read on to see what my clients say about me.
CHRIS & TESS
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.
RYAN & FINKA
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.
JENNIFER & RODRIGO
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!!
ARIA & XANTO
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.
