Artistic story telling

Purple Orchard Wedding

Purple Orchard Wedding

I planned a last minute civil ceremony over the holidays and was pretty confident there was no way I would find a photographer in less than 24 hours that I would be really excited about or even available on New Year’s Day for that matter! I stumbled across an advertisement/promotion for Christie’s work, took the chance and made the call, and miraculously she responded during a time when most photographers probably would have loved to enjoy their holiday break/New Year activities. She let me know she was interested in the most accommodating way, was able adapt to my rather strange time request, and exuded nothing but respect and professionalism. we never met in person before my special day yet Christine was kind and easygoing amongst myself and my entire family. In the whirlwind of planning a ceremony kn 72 hours,  I was so relieved I found a professional who was willing to capture a couple of hours,  that I forgot to even worry about how the pics would turn out…and then they did…less than a week later….and oh my!!!!. I guess this is the part people are most.concerned about. So I will just say I feel like I won the lottery with Christine! the pictures were magical. She has a special spirit and I think she must capture it wherever she goes with her attention to detail and artful eye. Her quiet disposition and meek nature makes me wonder if she was quietly, yet magically, illustrating the story of those two hours in a manner we could not have dreamt until we received our photos. I felt like I had stepped back into a fairytale of that day. Christie is exceptional and her artistic storytelling through photos leave you drinking in then images and expectantly excited to turn the page. We are so grateful for you, Christie, and I hope we get to work with you again one day! Best wishes to you and all the lucky humans you may have the opportunity to photograph 🙂

Best Choice of Wedding Photographer

Choosing Christie as my wedding photographer was one of the best choices I made.
I had considered many photographers, but Christie had the best portfolio among them. Her photos of us in San Francisco City Hall came out great!

She was really kind and very patient and open to suggestions we were going to take. Christie has excellent photography skills and always has cool ideas for posing and showing the “best side” of your body in the pictures.

Moreover, we made a mistake and didn’t download our photos from google drive for a while. But after contacting her, she kindly uploaded all the images again within hours to let us download the files.
By the way, she is very punctual and also replies quickly to Emails and messages.
She made the photos available to us  in one week after the wedding
If you want to have the best wedding pictures to amaze your kids years later, she is the choice

“Artistic Perfection”

Our wedding day was truly captured in the photographs taken by  Christie Chen Photography. Every detail was complete perfection. Christie’s artistic eye for each moment made our wedding photos pieces of art.  I knew the moment that I saw her work, we had to have them document our special day. They exceeded every expectation I had and we can forever look at our photos and vividly remember all details of our amazing wedding.

Not only were the photos perfect, but it was such a fun experience. Usually photos can be exhausting and redundant, but not with Christie! Their team made taking the photos so amusing. Our creative photos were entertaining and really embodied everyone’s personality. Every person that saw our photographs, felt as though they were looking into a magazine.

When it comes to making a decision about who will be documenting one of the most important days of your life, we are so glad we chose Christie Chen Photography!!

We had Christie Photography to cover our wedding day and we are very happy to work with Christie. She is very professional and down-to-earth with her work. Without our request she came to the venue herself to examine the light and suggested the proper way for setup. She has the greatest passion to her work and makes every effort to take the best pictures. She made our wedding day special and memorable. Thank you Christie!
