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!

Every summer, my parents would take our family on vacation to far off places like Finland or Kenya. During these years, I developed a love for travel – waking up in new cities, wandering foreign streets and experiencing different cultures. Eventually post-college, the real world came calling and these trips became a thing of the past.
