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!

You’re a busy photographer/cinematographer/creative. You don’t have an extra $150-$10,000 laying around to collect sample products and you definitely don’t have a week to style rooms, hang art on the walls, set up flat lays, collect inspiring props AND THEN photograph everything and edit the images.

When a client comes to your website, what do they see first? Your logo? .Jpgs? Or aspirational products? Today, consumers make decisions in split seconds. You need to impress and you need to do it quickly and flawlessly.  If you are an IPS photographer (offering in-person sales), you already know how important it is to sell PRODUCTS, not .jpgs. Ditch that opening slideshow of jpgs and and show prospective clients what they are coming to you for: keepsake art (even if they don’t know it yet).
