Me.
I'm a guy who loves photography, eating, mountain biking, and good stories. I'm based out of Los Angeles but I love traveling the world. I am inspired by life itself, different people, different cultures, and dance of all types. I love to dance! If there is good music some part of my body will start to shake and move. I love love and I love photographing people in love. I believe that there is beauty all around us, but most people will overlook it. It's my job to find that beauty and bring it out.

My Style.
Creative. Modern. Fresh. Fun. Photojournalistic. Curious. Edgy. Sweet. Spontaneous. And personal.

You.
You're looking for something different than what's out there. Traditional and cliche photography isn't what you want. You're looking for photography that reflects your personality, and photography that makes you say "Yup! That's me." Read less

Let me start off by saying I was nervous for my engagement shoot. I don't know how to pose for pictures. I always feel so awkward. I also feel awkward when I try not to be awkward by imitating others posing because they don't look like they feel awkward. You know what I mean: hand-on-hip one-leg-forward lean-back turn-head-slightly action.

The shoot wasn't anything I expected. I thought it was going to be a bunch of "stand there, *snap*, look this way, *snap*, look that way, *snap*, make love to the camera, *snap*" but Erich created such a relaxing and fun environment for us. It really became just Armando and me being together and Erich capturing our moments. I got tired of posing for photos and would have quit early but Erich was on a mission. Thankfully, because we got more really sweet shots. He is really passionate about what he does.

I would highly highly recommend to anyone to have Erich take your photos. He really gave me an understanding of the difference between a professional photographer and a guy with a camera. The end result is a special moment captured, the portrayal of emotion and feeling, the love, all in a photo -- rather than just two people holding each other.

We are so glad to have chosen Erich Chen as our photographer for our wedding! Erich's photography is unique. His shots aren't always the same like most photographers who have a set pose or uses the same ideas on all their clients. Erich is creative in using his surroundings, location, lighting to get a special shot. He really captures the moment and brings out the personality of the couple in his photos. We also really appreciated how he responded quickly to our emails and was so accommodating. We loved the results of our engagement photos and wedding photos/album! We couldn't be happier!

I was referred to Erich by a friend who went to the same college as him. Upon looking at his website, I completely fell in love. I thought his style of photography perfectly matched me and my husbands. I enjoyed seeing how his photographs portrayed a story about the couple. It was clean and fresh. I immediately emailed him about his prices and packages. I must have looked at his website a hundred of times before meeting with him. When we met him I thought all three of our personalities blended. We had a lot in common and we thought Erich was one of those unique people you don’t get to meet often. He was willing to work with us on what we wanted for our package. Of course we booked him. We loved our engagement pictures. We were able to use the pictures in a book, use it for our save the dates, and play the pictures for a slide show during our wedding reception.
During the photo shoots Erich has a way of capturing the natural interaction between people. I’m not going to say because I wouldn’t want to give his secrets away. You’ll have to book him to find out. He is the easiest to get along with. You can tell that he is passionate about his work and truly loves capturing people during important moments of their life. I would definitely recommend Erich to a friend. Well actually, my friend booked him after our engagement pictures and he gave us additional pictures for our wedding album for the referral. After the wedding he sends out the pictures in a timely manner. He sends out a CD that is enclosed in a very professional case with a picture of us on the front. It is great that he gives us a copy of the pictures because we did so many things with them.
His photographs are beautiful!
Erich is AWESOME!!

Over the years Todd and I have had the pleasure to watch Erich capture some of our closest friends’ most important moments (Engagements, Weddings, Pregnancies, Baby, and Family Photos) but it wasn’t that he just “captured” the moment; it was the fact that their special memories came to life in truly magical ways under Erich’s direction. It was an easy decision, when it came for Todd and I to choose our wedding photographer, for we were lucky enough to be let in on the best secret from so many of our friends---the talent that is Erich Chen Photography.

Honestly, Todd and I approached our 1st photo session with Erich, which was our Engagement Session, with some nerves for we both had not been in front of the camera in a long time. I look back and laugh at how unnecessary it was to feel that way. Erich has a really calm energy when he is working that is infectious. His direction, demeanor, and personality quickly put Todd and I at ease. The results of our Engagement and Wedding photos are extraordinarily beautiful, unique and truly exceptional.

Erich’s creativity, innovation, and originality as an artist is what sets him apart from other photographers. In my opinion a lot of wedding photographers take standard, unimaginative, and cheesy photos. They always seem to showcase awkward wedding poses that do not represent the couple’s personality or the bridal parties’ for that matter as well. Erich’s photos are organic, real, and genuinely represent who you are as a couple. This is where the magic comes in: Erich’s eye. His artistic ability is truly inspiring and one to watch. He is not afraid to live outside the box, and that is what is so refreshing to see in an artist.

I strongly encourage anyone who is looking for a photographer to delve deeper into Erich’s photos--for they speak volumes. Todd and I received numerous compliments and continue to whenever someone runs across them. Erich turned our special day into an honest and creative reflection, one that we can so happily look back and relive each time we look through the photos. Thank you Erich. We cannot thank you enough. Erich will always be our go-to photographer for many years to come.
