Get To Know The Pros: Judy Pak

Hi Judy! Tell us a little bit about yourself, for those who aren’t familiar with your work. What’s your background in photography?

Hi there! I am a photographer, wife and a mother of three boys living in Manhattan.

Photography has always been a long time hobby of mine but I decided to pursue it as a career after a few years of practicing law. I realized I desperately craved a creative outlet. It was a challenging transition but so happy and grateful I did it!

How would you describe your photography style in 3 words?

Thoughtful, timeless and dreamy

Do you have a specialty?

Judy Pak Photography

I specialize in portraiture, especially in the moments before the wedding ceremony. I love creating telling portraits that capture the tenderness and the anticipation of the bride.

You only take on 10-12 weddings per year. How do you feel that's benefited your business and to an extent, your clients?

By limiting the amount of weddings I take on, I am able to have a better quality control and connect with those couples who share similar sensibilities and aesthetic. Clients appreciate the personal care and extra attention to detail I am able to give them.

It looks like you only shoot with film. How did you make this choice? Tell us what your favorite tools of the trade are.

I love that film forces me to slow down in this fast-paced, crazy world. It also absorbs light in such a beautiful way that is really integral to my style. I shoot with a Contax 645 and I primarily use Fuji 400H, Portra 800, Ilford 400 and 3200.

Anything else you'd like to add?

I love a good dance party!

We have seen time and time again. Clients are more likely to order and upgrade their photo albums when they see a  pre-designed layout. After a year or more planning every little detail of their wedding; the last thing clients want to do is make more decisions. When you pre-design an album that blows them away, chances are high that they will approve and order the album as you've designed it.

About eight years ago, I was reading a recipe blog and somehow ended up on the blogger’s photography posts. I spent a ton of time going through her photography posts and just couldn’t stop thinking about how I had to give it a try too! My husband (who is amazingly supportive) got on board immediately and we bought a camera. From there, I read, practiced, and photographed family and friends, and it naturally spiraled into what it has become today.
