Carrie Chen Photography is an award winning boutique photography studio that specializes in elegant, fine art wedding photography located in San Francisco, CA. We are also available for destination weddings worldwide.

As a photographic artist, I strive to create artistic and high-quality images that represent the distinct personalities and genuine emotions of the couples I work with in the best light possible. When my clients look back on their wedding photographs twenty or thirty years from now, I would love for them to be able to reminisce and relive those tender and happy moments with the same sentiments they shared on that special day. I cherish the storytelling aspect of my work as a photographer, and it would be a great honor and privilege for me to tell your wedding day story with timeless, authentic images.

We photograph weddings in San Francisco, Napa, Sonoma, the Bay Area, Los Angeles, Hawaii, and other destination weddings worldwide.

We would love to hear more about your wedding day! To set up an appointment, please call us at 415-894-2118 or email us at info@carriechenphotography.com.

I just want to say THANKYOU so much! Carrie captured moments that I didn't see and I got to see not only great pictures of me and my husband but also of the guest and how much fun they were having at the wedding. I loved how Carrie also captured great pictures of the venue! I was able to see all the small details that I didn't notice during the wedding. Carrie’s photos were great and it looked so natural. She took note on all the pictures I wanted taken and even took extras on her own. I am very pleased with the photo quality. The pictures that she took were at very great angles, she caught people right in the moment! I even saw people having fun taking selfies!

Carrie is a true artist and made my wedding day special with all of the great moments that she captured. Because of Carrie I will have great photos to look back at and remember the day that I married my best friend. I feel so lucky to have found her to do my photos, her fun personality & professionalism is just what I was looking for! Everyone should experience great photography on their wedding just like I did. Call Carrie, she’s the best and I couldn’t have asked for better!!!!! We love you Carrie!!

We had the pleasure of working with Carrie for both our engagement and wedding photos. From the moment we met Carrie, we were impressed with her professionalism. She arrived early and was very knowledgeable about the site we had chosen for our engagement photos. Carrie was also very friendly, which made my camera-shy fiancé and I feel much more comfortable during the shoot. We met with Carrie again in July 2014, for our wedding. Carrie was just as professional, and sweet, as she was the first time we met her. We received numerous compliments from our guests, regarding Carrie’s excellent work ethic and ability to capture truly memorable moments. Carrie’s enthusiasm for her work was much appreciated. We highly recommend Carrie for your engagement and wedding services.

My husband and I could not be happier with Carrie as our wedding photographer. Our wedding planning went pretty smoothly (surprisingly) - we found our venue right away, my hair stylist and makeup artist – but when it came to finding a wedding photographer, selecting the right one was not an easy task for us. First of all, we wanted various photography styles. We like the journalistic/candid shots approach as well as artistic romantic portraits. At the same time, we had so many family members and friends from out of state/country that we also wanted formal group shots with everyone. We spoke to a few photographers and looked at all their albums.. and after a few, it all became a bit of a blur. However, when we spoke to Carrie, she made it super easy for us. First of all, she is obviously a talented photographer. No doubt about that. What sets Carrie apart is that she listens patiently, she explains thoroughly, and she delivers perfectly. AND she is just a lovely person (keep in mind that your photographer will be shadowing you all day long, so make sure you like the person or else it can get a bit creepy). We highly recommend Carrie. We appreciate her professionalism and truly love her work. She genuinely cares about her clients, and she would go above and beyond to make your special day memorable. When I look at our photos, I just want to relive the moments again. Seeing our friends and family laughing & dancing, the hard work we put into our wedding (decorations, set-ups, venue, etc), and how beautiful we all looked that day -- it’s absolutely priceless. Thanks, Carrie!

My husband and I feel so lucky to have had Carrie as our photographer. Her calming energy was very nice for a bride who is trying to stay relaxed herself. She scouted out our pre ceremony picture site and it was just perfect. When we re received the photos I was blown away at how beautiful they are and how many she had taken. She wasted no time and caught every special moment.

My husband and I had a great experience with Carrie and her assistant as our photographer and the pictures came out great :)

She contacted my husband and I before the wedding and reviewed our styles and preferences, focusing on every detail of the big day :) Then, on the day of, she photographed our wedding at a destination site a few hours away from the bay area, got to the area early, and shot an extra hour earlier than we expected her (which was great with the added pictures we got!) We had multiple locations, and she was able to work with our surroundings in a way that made for some very beautiful photos.

She is very personable, friendly, knows what she's doing, and gave us constant direction when taking pictures (which was especially helpful since we both generally do not like taking pictures!) She was also very hard working - many of our guests have come back to us since the wedding letting us know that she as "everywhere" taking pictures - making sure to get all possible moments on camera.

We will definitely be more than happy with having her shoot other major events in the future :)

Carrie was a joy to work with. My Fiance and I took a trip to Napa to have our engagement photos taken and chose Carrie as our photographer. Since we were from out of town, Carrie went out and scoped the area prior to our session (unexpected... above and beyond). Not only did she take the time to scope the area for shot locations, but she also got to know us via email in order to accurately reflect our personalities in the photos. She is also one of the nicest vendors we've ever worked with...very responsive and takes the time to fully explain the next steps, what to expect, and ensures customer satisfaction. Her prices were affordable and her products were quality. Would certainly recommend her as a photographer.

Carrie is an absolute sweetheart and such a fantastic professional to work with. My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting her many years ago and when our wedding drew near we were so thrilled to have Carrie shoot our engagement photos for us. They are beyond stunning! She is a true professional and incredibly talented. She made the shoot fun and comfortable and listened to our ideas and gave us gentle directions. She focused on making the photos very "us" and we couldn't be happier with the results. I can't wait to hire Carrie for our future photography needs and would highly recommend her to anyone! Thank you, Carrie! xx

After a prolonged search, we selected Carrie Chen as our photographer, but were nevous because of the importance of this day. Immediately, Carrie emailed us about herself, provided more links to her albums, and explained her photography philosophy. After emailing back and forth, we met with Carrie in person to go over things further and so she could get a "feel" for us as a couple. We were going to ask if she would be willing to visit the site and scout out good picture locations, but we didn't have to. Carrie had already planned and arranged to do just that. This was not something included in our contract. Throughout the entire process, Carrie was always easy to deal with, responded quickly, and was so warm and genuinely interested in what we wanted and how we saw our day going.

On the day of the wedding, Carrie arrived well before the contracted starting time and started taking pictures around the venue. During the wedding, Carrie was everywhere we needed her, but never in the way. We had several guests comment about being impressed with Carrie since she was so thorough, friendly, and unobtrusive. We still have people mentioning it. My bride and I were also thoroughly impressed and could not have asked for a better photographer.

After the wedding, Carrie continued to please us. One week after the wedding, she emailed us a happy one week anniversary and thank you email. Carrie told us she had already uploaded all of our photos to the website and they would be accessible shortly. Carrie emailed us her top seven favorites and we were beyond happy with the outcome. Carrie ended up taking over 900 photos when contractually she only had to take 600.

My wife and I were pleased with Carrie every step of the way and could not have asked for a better photographer. She was always warm, caring and genuinely invested in capturing our special day. We wholeheartedly recommend Carrie for your next special event.

Carrie Chen is a consummate professional. She captured the special moments of my magical and quite frenzied wedding day and gave us the romantic view we asked for. Upon our first consultation with Carrie she was open to our vision and knew exactly what we wanted. We chose her because her images portrayed the soft, romantic feeling that we desired. She gave that to us plus more.

Carrie and her assistant were extremely friendly and kind natured. You couple that with professionalism and you get a terrific team that is easy to work with. They also worked extremely well with our videographers which made the shots easy and fun for my husband and I.

The images turned out even better than I imagined as well. I told Carrie about my insecurities having just lost a ton of weight. She considered them and took images that flattered me most. I cannot say enough about how pleased I am with her. I only wish that I lived in the bay area so that she could chronicle my family in the future.
