About Kitoko


I'm Balmin. Award Winning Traveling Wedding photographer (Local Chicago, IL). This is my wife Cindy.

Did you know that over 40% of Brides have regrets when it comes to their wedding photos?

I will never forget when my wife and I got married. She was on cloud nine when we received our wedding photos.

I remember her having a huge smile, but suddenly the look on her face changed to disappointment. Those special moments that were anticipated were never captured by the photographer.

After going through all the photos, I  asked why she had that look on her face, and she said, “You know… I honestly didn’t know at the time… but really thinking about it, I just didn’t like the way our photographer posed me for the portraits. I just don’t think I look very flattering in those poses. Also, where is the shot where my mom was helping me with my dress”

Truly a disappointment.

Imaging having invest lots of time and money in finding the "dress" and be then not to be happy with poses in your portraits.

After that experience, my goal was to master the art of posing in order to bring joy and satisfaction to my brides.

Unfortunately, a lot of photographers don’t understand that it’s not just about the the beautiful compositions and back drops. Though those are all important, it is an absolute necessity to be a master in the art of posing and capturing moments to ensure the bride and the groom look absolutely dazzling and have a visual diary of the best day of their life.
