Capturing life's special moments


Here is a collection of some of my favourite events and photo shoots over the years.


"I have known Ken for a long time, and when I needed a professional photographer for the WCM (Women In Capital Markets) annual fundraising event, I know I can count on Ken. Ken did a fantastic job at the event. His ability to capture the moment is unmistakable. His talent and professionalism was demonstrated through the fast turn around time he provided.

- Rachel Wason, ScotiaBank


"Ken is very accommodating and efficient. The only input he got from us as to what we wanted was the picture measurements, but he used his own expertise and ideas to produce an excellent set of photographs for our website."

- Patricia Monger, McMaster University


"I have had the pleasure of hiring Ken to work on several publications. His photos are excellent, and his professionalism and approach-ability make his photo subjects more comfortable in front of the camera. I'd gladly recommend hiring Ken for future photography projects."

- Cristina Blesa, Toronto Metropolian University

Event Photography
PwC Latin Connection
"I truly recommend Ken as a great photographer for your event! We engaged Ken to cover our PwC's Latin Connection annual external event where more than 100 people attended. We invited key clients, alumni and key PwC stakeholders. Ken ensured to capture those special/important moments of the event, and also kept us informed during the event. Ken provided great photos! The feedback received was outstanding and we were able to utilize his great work firm-wide through our internal communication network. Gracias Ken for your support and dedication!"
- Maria Cordero, PwC

"Ken is a brilliant photographer! He took a whole series of profile photograph for a book jacket and frankly, every single one would be excellent. My only problem now is that I am spoiled for choice!"
"Ken is an amazing photographer. We've hired him two times to take family pictures. He is great with kids and is able to capture some very special moments on film. We will be having him take family photos again next summer. "
“I hired Ken Yan to provide photography for our Spring brochure and was extremely pleased with the results. Ken's professionalism made my job easier; he is proactive, reliable, and skilled. I look forward to working with him again.”

Advertising Campaign
Public Notices
"I've hired Ken Yan for a variety of projects for The G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education, Toronto Metropolitan University and he is an excellent photographer. Ken is able to capture the essence of the subject no matter the project. The self portraits he has photographed for our recent advertising campaign are often commented on positively by the general public and his professional demeanor makes him a pleasure to work with. His sense of art direction is innovative which allows him to provide the competitive edge that is needed in the Marketing world."
- Barbara Wright, Toronto Metropolitan University


Lawn Summer Nights

"Ken Yan participated in the Lawn Summer Nights event (fundraising event for Cystic Fibrosis) by acting as our resident photographer! Ken is extremely professional, creative and really directed the photo booth so participants had a fun and memorable experience! All photos were featured on the event website as well on social media (Facebook, etc.). Ken was extremely engaged and creative in terms of angles, content and event theme. Also, Ken had awesome camera equipment of the utmost quality - the shots were clean and crisp. Thank you Ken for capturing the event to spread the word in support of a great cause!"

- Kimm Stevens, KPMG

Eat to the Beat

"Ken Yan's photography work for our event Eat to the Beat is stunning. He is a master at capturing the essence and vibrancy of the occasion and his photos are Willow Breast & Hereditary Cancer Support's go-to source for promoting the event on our website, through social media and in marketing materials. He is a pleasure to work with and very generous with his talent and time!"

- Shana Coppen, Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation


"Ken is a relaxed and gifted photographer. It was fun to work with him. He was patient, easy going, had great suggestions for poses and the backgrounds, and was open to other ideas. He chose settings that complemented me and what I was wearing so that in every photo I looked great. He seemed to capture the right moment. I love every photo he sent me; they all turned out so beautiful that I can’t decide which ones to use. I would highly recommend Ken and would work with him again."

- Christina Maco, University of Western Ontario

Wedding Photography
"Ken shot our wedding photos and did a fantastic job! He has a great eye and we received so many compliments on his photos. He captured candid moments as well as posed photos. He took some formal traditional shots but we especially loved his creative fun photos of the two of us. Ken provided very personal service and an extremely quick turn around on the photos. I would highly recommend him as a photographer."

- Chloe Whitehorn, Client

"Ken’s passion for photography is constantly reflected in his work as each one of his photographs is unique and creative in its own way. I would highly recommend Ken as a photographer for any occasion."

"It was a pleasure to work with Ken. He captured our Caribbean carnival celebration beautifully. He shot all the elements from the guests to the performers, cuisine and decor seamlessly. Ken was extremely professional and organized and had great energy and enthusiasm."
