Ivan Chen Photography seeks to capture your special day in the most personalized manner possible. Combining different styles, we cater to capture memories and moments that can be treasured forever. To begin creating your personalized package, contact us for more info!!

About Me: Have you ever seen a picture that captured a moment perfectly? Have you ever longed to be great? Ivan Chen Photography is a combination of those two dreams. Seven years ago, those two passions were combined together into the beauty that is photography. Growing up my dad owned a one hour photo and I was always running around tinkering (he calls it "breaking") with everything! Years down the road those tinkerings became a profession.

Why Choose Me? Aside from the fact that it is our goal to make you look good-- It is our business model to work twice as hard as our competition. Other photographers give their clients approximately 75-100 engagement photos & approximately 500 wedding photos. We give 150-200 engagement photos and 850-1000 wedding photos-- fully edited! While most photographers tend to either lean towards photojournalism or traditional posing, I believe that with the technology available to us why settle for one or the other? In fact, let's take it a step further and not just give you two, give you three options blended into one weirdly awesome photographic style!

Styles:

- Photojournalism: is simply telling a story through photos.

- Editorial: These are the shots that make you and your fiance look like you belong in a magazine!

- Posed Candids: These are natural, happy, intimate moments we capture! We specialize in making

you and your fiance feel comfortable and look amazing!

As a photographer myself, I knew that whoever we hired for our wedding would have to be exceptionally skilled and someone I could trust handing over the camera to. When Ivan and I spoke for the first time, I asked him everything from what kind of packages he offered to what kind of equipment he shot with. He was extremely kind answering all my questions and was actually delighted to be speaking to a fellow photographer. His knowledge and openness about his photographic process put me completely at ease; I felt instantly comfortable with him shooting our wedding. He was very open to working with my strong ideas of what I wanted photographically and stylistically for our engagement shoot and ultimately our wedding. Though he'd never shot (that I know of) on a boat, we shot our entire engagement session on a sailboat while at sea, which goes to show how adaptable and proficient he and his second shooter, Monica, are. Pre-wedding day Ivan helped me create a photographic schedule that helped us stay on time and get in almost all of the must-get photos and many more. On the wedding day, they arrived promptly,looked sharp, worked well with our wedding coordinator, and toured the venue to locate the positions they would ultimately shoot from to capture the moments best. At our beach reception, the clouds rolled in and the lighting dramatically changed however both Ivan and Monica were prepared with all equipment (and knowledge) they needed to still shoot beautifully. It is truly a remarkable photographer that can make the images turn out even when the conditions changed. They even hiked through sand and jumped some waves with us to get the shots I really wanted. Additionally it was very easy to contact Ivan via phone call, text, and email. When my venue required me to submit proof of my vendor's insurance, Ivan was more than happy to help and send his to me. We received the engagement and wedding photos about three weeks after we shot them-very promptly. Overall wonderful!

If I could give Ivan 10 stars I would. Seriously, he is amazing. His work speaks for itself. He is great at what he does, and very professional. He was always very punctual and returned my emails very quickly. I would highly recommend Ivan to anyone! He is so awesome and I am so happy that he was our wedding photographer.

What a blessing these two were to Mike and I on our Big Day. Not only this but our engagement photos turned out phenomenal as well! We wanted to spend a little more on our photographer but they were so worth it. Ivan knows exactly what he is doing and makes the day of calm and worry free. They are a great team and provide such a beautiful recap of such a special day. They are professional yes, but truly care about their clients and treat you like family really. They are awesome at creating beautiful pictures but also listen to you as the bride and groom if you have any specific pictures that you would want to take Could not say thank you enough to these two, they are so great!

When I was planning my wedding I researched a lot of vendors looking for just the right team. Ivan was the first photographer I met with and I just knew he and Monica would be perfect. Ivan is easy to get along with and professional. He always replied to my texts and emails in a timely manner and even helped me out with my wedding day schedule. Ivan and Monica shot our engagement pictures and even threw in some family shots with our kids. I have received countless compliments on both my engagement pictures as well as my wedding pictures, their work speaks for itself. I could not have chosen anyone better.

My husband and I look forward to working with Ivan and Monica again.

Ivan and Monica shot our engagement photos and our wedding. Here is the bottom line:

- Ivan and Monica are not just fantastic photographers, they are fantastic people.
- They understand that you are naturally beautiful and actively capture those qualities.
- If you ask them to do something, they get it done ahead of the deadline.
- They are passionate about their work and they go above and beyond for their clients.
- Ivan and Monica aren't shy when it comes to a challenge. My engagement shoot? Photographed with live butterflies. My wedding? Shot in the pouring rain. Photos? Absolutely stunning.
- Fantastic product - no questions asked.

Hiring Ivan and Monica was the best decision that I made while planning my wedding. I whole-heartedly recommend their services to any couple that are searching for their dream photographer.

We had originally only wanted a photographer for our engagement photos since we were getting married in Costa Rica. We were planning on getting a local photographer in Costa Rica, BUT after talking with Ivan we were hooked on having him and his fiance Monica (2nd photographer) come with us to Costa Rica to shoot our wedding. The first time we had all met, they were super nice and really tried to get to know us. They did not pressure us at all into anything which is great!

We actually happen to fly out on the same flight and gotten a chance to get to know both Ivan and Monica before our wedding day, which was great! They are such a cute and lovely couple! While in Costa Rica, we actually had a day where we spent on a catamaran and had invited Ivan and Monica out. They were so awesome and had took great pictures on that trip.

During the day of the wedding, and with the high humidity in Costa Rica, both Ivan and Monica showed up dressed professionally and went straight to work. The pictures turned out excellent and we love them!

We can't thank them enough for capturing memories that will last a lifetime!

Ivan Chen Photography and his team = top notch. They shot for my engagement and wedding photos. Biggest thing I liked about Ivan was that he was so easy to get along with and was very helpful in all aspects of my wedding, not just the photography part. I feel liked he put in a lot of effort on our photos and the best part was that he was not stingy in taking photos, in fact he gave us a lot of proofs, which I loved. Another aspect of Ivan Chen Photography that really stood out was his awesome partner, Monica. As a team, they work so well together and really make the photos become beautiful. Overall, I would recommend him to anyone getting married.

Ivan and Monica are amazing. Everyone says photos creates memories for a lifetime, so you must have a great photographer for your wedding. When you first start to look for a photographer, most people look online and go to wedding events. I was fortunate as I was referred by a classmate to Ivanchenphotography. It was truly a blessing to work with Ivan and Monica. Now I would like to pass that blessing onto others, contact Ivan if you want amazing & gorgeous photos. We loved every shot! One other thing, Ivan does not batch edit photos as most other photographers do, which was very important to me. Go check out his website and see for yourself, photography should be the number one thing on your wedding checklist.

Ivan and Monica saved our wedding day(s)! They were the only vendor that kept their word and went WAY ABOVE AND BEYOND! Words cannot convey our gratitude.

They were professional, punctual, personable, and FUN! We did the engagement photo session and 2 different wedding ceremonies over 3 weeks time period. My husband is extremely shy and they made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. The engagement session was a delight and so easy going. We love the photos, which we used at our sign in tables. They even brought us refreshments to go along with their great sense of humor! They answered all our questions and gave advice in every area that we were lost. The locations they chose were perfect! There were so many last minute chnges and they were always extremely curteous. Unfortunately on our wedding day, many of our other vendors did not do their part. Ivan and Monica saved me, the bride from tears. We had so many unexpected problems and Ivan and Monica, without being asked literally helped save my wedding day!!! They helped find out why certain things werent getting done, when I couldnt. They came and comforted me when I was getting frustrated. They coordinated the cake being brought out for the cutting ceremony (because our venue was short staffed), and they even helped move the cake and clear the table. It was an amazing and heartwarming task after task...

Needless to say, the photos are absolutely breathtaking! We love them and couldnt have ask for more memorable pictures. We would give them the highest possible reccommendation to anyone. We look forward to using them again and again. On top of everything... they are even affordable!!!

Thank you Ivan and Monica for literally being the most positive, helpful, and enjoyable people on our wedding day. WE LOVE YOU IVAN CHEN PHOTOGRAPHY!!!!!! 6 STARS!!!

Ivan Chen Photography was amazing! He was so easy to work with (by far the best of all of our wedding vendors) and his pictures were BEAUTIFUL! He actually did three photo shoots for us: the actual proposal, engagement photos, and our wedding. He and Monica (his second shooter) made us feel so comfortable (we weren't used to modeling for photos :) and the pictures really were amazing. He went above and beyond what we would have expected: driving through traffic for a last minute proposal shoot and getting us the pictures from our wedding just a couple of weeks after the event. I highly recommend Ivan Chen Photography!

After much search and debate over the perfect photographer for our big day, my husband and I are so relieved that we picked the very best one! We searched in Texas and neighboring states for a photographer that would make our engagement shoot exactly what we wanted, and were lucky to find Ivan and Monica. They took the time to capture the perfect moments in meaningful locations, even though it meant traveling to opposite sides of town in beautiful L.A. Needless to say our engagement shoot was a big success, but once we received our photos (in no time at all!) we were convinced...we HAD to have them at our Texas wedding!
Ivan and Monica were not only wonderful during our big day, they made sure to help us with tips throughout the planning stages. From wardrobe tips to scheduling, they were available for all of our questions!
I will forever be thankful for their professionalism and courtesy in one of the hottest summers our city has seen! In 106 degree weather, Ivan was able to keep his cool (and ours!) and produce the most wonderful memories of our special day.
Now with a baby on the way, we will absolutely be flying them out for family photos and every other important event in our lives!

Ivan and Monica were fantastic! I highly recommend having two photographers.... Because he is amazing, but she pays attention to the small details--- if your hair is in place, etc. together they make a great team! Our engagment pictures were beautiful--- it was hard to just pick one for the save the dates, and our wedding photos are stunning as well.

One note, make sure you know your must have pictures! Every picture I knew I wanted they executed beautifully--- I wish I had a few more in my mind the day of the wedding.... Because its hard to think as you're rushing to get everything. Know what you want. And Ivan will capture it.

Let's just say that if you hired someone other than Ivan Chen Photography, you made a BIG mistake! Ivan is THE BEST at what he does - cool, professional, and patient. As someone that doesn't consider themselves to be generally photogenic, I felt very comfortable shooting with Ivan with his direction and expertise. In fact, we liked our shots so much after the engagement shoot, we had him come with us all the way to Taiwan to shoot our wedding reception too!!!

Ivan Chen is a superb photographer with a great eye. His talent and professionalism exceeded our expectations, I could not be more happy with how my wedding and engagement photos turned out!
You can just tell by interacting with Ivan how passionate he is about capturing each and every special moment. I highly recommend the full package along with an assistant photographer, photo album and prints. The photo album we just received is absolutely stunning and something we will cherish forever. On top of that, he is very flexible, personable and easy to work. When choosing vendors for such a stressful and hectic day, I felt completely at ease with my choices thanks to Wedding Wire.

My wife and I were both completely satisfied with our pictures from the engagement and wedding. Ivan was especially good with getting clear parameters of specific things we wanted in our pictures, what we were comfortable with, and having everyone be relaxed and having a good time. Pictures last a lifetime, and I am glad Ivan took care of my engagement/wedding pictures and I would be confident with having him be responsible with any photo shoots I may want in the future. The pictures are both top notch quality and wide in variety. Neither my wife nor I are very much into being in front of the camera, but it was a big help and relief that Ivan was able to give us direction in things that look good but also cater to our personalities and making us feel comfortable. Ivan is very fun and personable, but I appreciated his business like attitude and professionalism when it came down to crunch time. He was also very flexible with our schedule, never making us worry that things might not get done. No one can expect a perfect experience, but I can honestly say my wife and I felt completely happy with our pictures. Bottom line, besides a fun and relaxing experience, Ivan will give you quality pictures.

Ivan Chen is a great photographer. Professional, honest, kind and will give you great quality. We recently got married and had Ivan do our pictures. They came out beautiful. He captured every moment of that day in detail and did not skip a beat. That went day went so fast that he captured things we either did not get to see ourselves or had missed getting so caught up in everything. Because of Ivan we now have all those memories of even the things we did not get to see. We have pictures we can reflect on and show to our children in the future. Thank you Ivan for wonderful pictures and being a true professional.

Just had my engagement photos taken by Ivan Chen Photography last weekend and I can not be more pleased with how everything turned out! Ivan and his assistant, Monica, worked very well as a team. They gave us clear directions on how to pose, where to look and totally made us feel very comfortable and at ease. Their level of professionalism exceeded our expectations!

Less than two days later, we were able to see the edited photos! I know that's quick because most of my friends waited over two weeks to get theirs. They have photography down to a science by figuring out how to use natural lighting (sun) to enhance each shot and making the best out of the surrounding areas. I normally don't take good photos but they made us look and feel like models! The picture quality is AMAZING -- so clear, the colors popped and you can tell they only use top of the line equipment.

I would highly recommend Ivan Chen Photography to all those who are looking to get their wedding/engagement photos taken. Will very likely hire him to shoot future family portraits, baby pictures, etc.

Ivan Chen is very professional, responsive, and passionate about delivering the highest level of quality and customer service. He was both friendly and professional, not to mention that he goes the extra mile to get what we ask for, and really helped out in answering questions and listened to our needs for the wedding. Both the pre wedding shots and the wedding shots were amazing! I highly recommend Ivan to all couples looking for a wedding photographer.

We cannot be more pleased with our choice in Ivan to photograph our wedding day. Like most people, we do not take many photos and were initially anxious on how to act/pose in photos. From our first meeting with Ivan, he assured that we will be just fine and he has come across this same statement from other clients. Come day of, he was absolutely right! He made us feel comfortable and his positivity helped us have fun with it! With a hectic day as this, many thoughts in your mind and our lack of organization - his attitude really made a HUGE difference on how our day turned out. And the pictures turned out beautifully! We enjoy looking through and reliving it all over again.

It can be tough to find the "perfect" photographer for your big event. You want someone who you'll get along with, so you can look like yourselves in the photos. You also want that photographer to have a "great eye" so your photos look like they could be published in a magazine, rather than your aunt's point & shoot Thanksgiving album. Don't look around any more. If you want the beautiful moments of your wedding/engagement session to be captured with timeless elegance, email Ivan right now!

When I first started researching photographers, I contacted 9 of them. Eight of them were not within our budget, and lucky for us, Ivan was. For our first meeting, Ivan spent over an hour walking us through the whole process and answering all of our questions. He was extremely professional and fun to talk to.

For our engagement shoot, both my husband and I were really nervous, but Ivan was able to calm us down and we ended up with a fantastic shoot. He ended up sending us our edited photos within a week! We were so shocked he turned them around that quickly. We've gotten nothing but compliments about how they turned out.

For the wedding, Ivan and his second photographer were prompt and got right down to business. I didn't even notice them taking photos half the time, but they were able to capture every single moment beautifully.

After the wedding, Ivan was able to turn around the photos in less than a month. We received over 1000 photos, fully edited. That type of service is unheard of in that time frame. We've received so many compliments, it's hard to keep track of.

If you want an affordable, high quality, personable photographer, then go with Ivan. You will not regret it.

We hired him for our engagement photos and our engagement photos. At both events, he let us include some of our own ideas, and because he is experienced, he knew just how much time he needed.

Ivan is also a personal friend, who was there before my husband and I were even dating. He is a humble man and would never say it, but he's not only good at what he does, he's great.
