I am merely stoked and feel blessed about seeing my name listed as one of the top ranked photographers in the following three worldwide communities: Fearless Photographer - Top 10 Photographers of 2016 (ranked the highest among U.S. photographers), ISPWP - International Society of Professional Wedding Photographer - Top 20 Photographers of 2016 (3rd highest among U.S. photographers) and MyWed Wedding Photographer - Top 15 out of nearly 20,000 registered photographers. And I am even beyond delighted to be listed in the top 5 on Wedding Photography Select of U.K - Best of 2016 and being placed as the Top photographer of Inspiration Photographer of Brazil in 2017. This is unimaginably huge and yet unreal to me since I literally started joining the photographer communities three years ago coming from zero connections to any other photography organizations and only knowing a handful number of photographers locally.
Huge thanks to all those amazing wedding photographer communities including, but not limited to, Mystic Seminars and Fearless Photographers community! I would also like to share these honors with my dear photographer friends located in my hometown, across the continent and all over the world; my most supportive wedding professional & vendor friends; my amazing sponsors, Fundy Software Inc, Pictobook, Renaissance Albums, & HoneyPic; and my most devoted & hard working kickass Ken Pak Photography team. Lastly and most importantly, I would like to recognize and give big high fives to all of my wonderful clients who trusted me from the beginning. I wouldn't have been able to achieve any of the above without them.
A day after their wedding Randle & Jacob wrote to me "Ken - Your energy is so infectious! And getting just a glimpse of the images you were capturing made Jacob and I beyond excited to see the finished product in a few weeks! Thank you for handling our motley crew so beautifully." It was my first groom+groom wedding, I just can say... it was a truly incredible experience, and heartfelt blast.
