I’m a sap.

And quite frankly, that is why I fell in love with photography. The power of an image to evoke an emotion is overwhelming! I make it my goal to draw out the sentiment of the moment behind every photograph. I want to create images that bring tears to your eyes, the kind that make you smile every time you look at the photos, share them, brag about them, print them, frame them and cherish them for a lifetime.

As a lifestyle photographer with a storytelling style, I find it hard to limit the type of photography I do to only weddings or families. I love the flexibility of photography, and therefore I love its complexity and variety as an art.

I’m always up for a fun project, and can certainly come up with a custom quote for your project. So try me : ) bonnie@bonniesen.com Read less

We would give Bonnie a 6 if we could. Seriously.

We knew that we wanted a good photographer for our wedding, and Bonnie is worth every penny we paid. We loved her work from her website, and she was very friendly and easy to work with right from the get go, without being overly fawning/fussy about the process. In spite of a rough day (weather-wise), she gave us great engagement snaps. As for the wedding itself, we had an all day affair, with both Jewish and Hindu ceremonies.
1. She was detail-oriented, which we loved (down to asking us if there were people who should not be photographed together, etc).
2. She captured candid shots just like we wanted, and did a great job with the formal photos (we had many requirements in a relatively short time. She and her assistant were very good at keeping things on time).
3. She was completely invisible during the ceremonies. Honestly, we barely remember seeing her. Yet she was obviously there, and shot great snaps of every important bit (of which there were many in both ceremonies) throughout the 8 hour day.
4. She brought an assistant (yes, this is WELL worth it), and together they captured every aspect of the event.
5. Most importantly, she managed to capture the emotion and the energy of our wedding. It is hard not to relive the magic of our wedding when we peruse her photos...

Overall, Bonnie is an awesome person to work with, and has a very impressive touch. Her sense of space and lighting is great (must be her architectural background :) ) and her ability to get emotion from an image sets her apart from other photographers. If you want a great set of memories from your event, Bonnie is the person to go to!

If you're looking for an incredible wedding photographer, look no further!

My Husband and I were VERY pleased with our choice of hiring Bonnie as our wedding photographer. She is very easy to work with and not to mention extremely talented!! She wants to give you a high quality product and definitely delivers one. She met with us and listened to how our wedding was going to go, and what we would like to see in the photographs. She surpassed our expectations with doing what we asked along with adding in her own artistic eye.

Bonnie was our photographer for our wedding in March, and I could not be any more happy that we chose her! I researched for months to find the best photographer, and she is definitely all that I was looking for, and way way more!

She is not only an amazingly talented photographer, but was so professional and organized throughout the whole planning process! She came and met up with me near my workplace (so convenient!) to go over everything, show me her photography style, and just talk about what I was looking for. From then on, I knew that she knew exactly what I wanted.

She also has an artistic vision that many other photographers are lacking. Every single photo that she took looks so perfect, like out of a magazine. Pretty blurred backgrounds and lighting, awesome dancing pictures, perfect ceremony pictures, and all the little details at our wedding like our save the dates/invitations, flowers, etc.. She really captured it all.. I think all the pictures came out so great because she would tell us exactly what to do with our hands, bodies, etc.. Her direction and guidance really made the pictures look great. And on top of it all, she went above and beyond by making us a cute video with our pictures in it, and music playing that was the song we walked out of the church to.

I cannot recommend her enough. Stop your searching and researching, and listen to someone who knows that this is the best photographer you will find.

Thanks again Bonnie! You are AMAZING!

Bonnie Sen can capture the magic and not just the memories. As the mother of the groom, I was watching everything unfold and wondering if it was even possible to catch it all in pictures. There was nothing missed. Bonnie seemed to be everywhere snapping but not in a way that was pushy. She captured the feeling of the event as well as the individual moments. My artistic eye is not easily satisfied, but Bonnie excelled at her craft, I need not have worried. I would most gladly recommend Bonnie in a heartbeat to any bride looking to have a joyous moment captured in photos. Loved the video montage with music. Fabulous!
Congratulations Bonnie. Well done.

As many of you may know, looking for the right wedding photographer who understands your vision is a daunting experience. My husband and I spent several hours combing through wedding websites, when finally we came across Bonnie on WeddingWire. As we started to peruse her website & blog, we knew instantly Bonnie was something special and we immediately connected with her. Not only did we get along really well with Bonnie, we were excited by her unique style of capturing those intimate, candid moments. Leading up to the wedding, Bonnie made us feel comfortable and confident that she and her fabulous assistant, Maia, would capture those moments for us. On the day of our wedding, Bonnie was incredibly professional, friendly, fun, laid-back and always made us feel at ease. She made a big impression on us and all our guests…including our flower girl, Grace – a 2 ½ year old who was mesmerized by Bonnie and followed her around with her Dad’s camera all night, trying to copy Bonnie’s every move! Bonnie’s photos of our wedding were PERFECTION. They were more amazing than we could have ever imagined. Looking at the photos is like reliving the day all over again. Bonnie captured every moment – especially, the many emotions throughout the day. We were absolutely thrilled. Bonnie by far exceeded our expectations. ***SHE IS A MUST HAVE!!***

Bonnie was awesome. Her pictures are gorgeous and perfectly captured the joy of our important day. Bonnie was also great to work with, easy to get in touch with and responsive to our needs. Professional from the first moment to the last, but also relaxed and willing to go with the flow of our not-so-traditional ceremony. I have already recommended Bonnie to friends and will continue to do so. Thanks so much!

Bonnie was amazing to work with leading up to our wedding and on the big day! During our engagement session, there were a lot of elements to work around (two unruly dogs and chilly weather), but our photos turned out perfectly. Somehow Bonnie made us look relaxed and natural, and her flexibility in location changes during the session resulted in some of our favorite photos. On our wedding day, Bonnie and her assistant showed up on time with big smiles ready to capture all of the details we had discussed in previous meetings. The photos turned out great, and we had more than enough options to choose from in picking our favorites for prints and albums! Bonnie took a variety of formal and informal shots, well-composed portraits, and, most importantly, captured the emotion of the day beautifully. I forgot to grab Bonnie for a few shots that I'd wanted during the reception (i.e. cocktail hour details and photos with each of our tables), but ultimately, the photos that she delivered exceeded our expectations. She is a true artist, and I will cherish the beautiful memories captured in our engagement and wedding photos forever. Thanks for everything, Bonnie!

We hired Bonnie Sen for our indoor ceremony and reception at the Athenaeum in Old Town Alexandria, VA. My husband found her, and I'm so very lucky he did!

I'm most impressed with the perspective of Bonnie's images. She captured our day through the eyes of a friend - our photos are of people mingling, friends catching up, Fred making me laugh, and the love we have for our little girl. The photos are intimate and personal, which is exactly what I wanted in a photographer.

Bonnie was incredibly responsive in all of her communications. We had few requests but wow, she went above and beyond on our wedding day. Our daughter (16 months old) was NOT in the best form, but Bonnie and her assistant rolled with all of the punches. They caught an amazing set of shots, and on top of that, pushed the stroller, caught our girl as she tried to run into the street, and even ran to CVS for baby Tylenol. Bonnie's professionalism speaks in her actions and work, and we felt that in all of our interactions with her.

On a side note... Bonnie and Maia were beyond flexible. With intense heat the day of our wedding, they found comfortable setting for our photos. When our little girl was uncooperative, they said "no problem!" and let us attend to her needs. And with ALL of these circumstance, I can tell you that our photos are wonderful! Check out her post on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.542215842486918.1073741834.371654226209748&type=1).

Bonnie was absolutely wonderful to work with and the best deal in town! She met us at the wedding venue a few weeks before we got married and helped us come up with photo ideas. During the day of the wedding she arrived early and was waiting for us and took all the shots that we previously discussed. I got a lot of compliments about Bonnie from our wedding guests. Definitely recommend Bonnie to anyone looking for a great photographer for any special event!

Bonnie was amazing to work with! I wasn't quite sure what I wanted in a photographer but after seeing the breadth of her style and work I was sold! All her work is so fresh, joyful and full of life. I love the way she is able to capture a moment. She was unbelievably professional, responsive and flexible. Working with her was one less stress on my plate. On the big day she was so helpful and kept me at ease. We both love the photos we ended up with! Thanks from the Grants, Bonnie :)

Before deciding on Bonnie Sen Creative, we looked at many other photographer's portfolios but felt that their pictures were static and uninspiring. Then we discovered Bonnie. With her architecture background, Bonnie sees things from another perspective. Her professionalism is unwavering, and her composure is calming on what could be a stressfull day. She is a true artist, and we couldn't be happier with the photos of our special day! Thanks Bonnie!

Bonnie is terrific! She's very sweet, very professional and incredibly easy to work with. She is also a great value! We started working with her about 8 months before our wedding when she did our engagement photos. She was willing to travel and she really puts you at ease, which I think was key to making the photos come out well! She is also recently married, so she knows exactly what you're going through. During the wedding, she and her assistant were fantastic - not intrusive, but able to give us instructions on the cake cutting when we needed it. I would absolutely recommend her to friends and family!

1.4/5.0
We hired Bonnie for our Korean wedding and also for an engagement shoot. The engagement photos were very repetitive without creativity and the ceremony photos were of the greatest disappointment. Many photos were dark, framed incorrectly, and did not showcase the best moments. Her photography/editing shows she does not have an experienced eye. To make it worse, she misplaced 1 essential portrait shot of our families. We feel she lacks creativity and the overall know-how to give direction to get optimal shots.

Her work ethic during both our sessions was not the best. At times, we felt as if she were running down the time. Also, during her contracted time for the ceremony, there was some downtime that she used to talk to guests instead of taking more shots. When I asked her about this, she stated she did not want to be rude, however, as a paying customer, I do not feel it is a photographer's job to spend 15 minutes making conversation instead of working.

Looking back, we only wish we had asked to see full galleries showcasing her entire portfolio. In the end, we could not justify the cost for the photos she took. For someone who is relatively new, the price she charges does not accurately reflect the finished product. She even admitted to rushing the photographs when I expressed my displeasure. In addition, she was very defensive and unprofessional in her email replying to my issues and was not very responsive. While we did appreciate that Bonnie was eventually willing to give us a partial refund and the unedited photos, the work was still unsatisfactory. Almost all the photos were taken with incorrect exposure and eventually had to all be post-processed again privately. Given that we could do this all over again, we would have chosen a different photographer.

Due to word limit, could not express our dissatisfaction completely.. SEE YELP REVIEW

Bonnie Sen Creative Photography responded with the following comments:

Dear Mihae,

I am sad to read this, especially after we had a great experience working together immediately following your engagement session and wedding ceremony. My belief was that we had come to a resolution based on your expressed concern with some of the imaging. I still love the images from your both of your sessions and stand by my work. I wish you and Vince all the best, regardless of your feelings about your experience.
