We hired Frank for our wedding on 6/8/14 and he did a great job!! He arrived ahead of schedule and stayed longer than planned to be sure to catch a few important moments which we really appreciated. He was the image of professionalism and kept his cool despite a very hot day and lots of chaos going on at the venue. We weren't able to get a lot of outside view shots due to the heat and lighting but Frank found a great place inside to capture our wedding party photos. There were a lot of details that went VERY wrong at our wedding (from the ceremony to the decor and everything in-between), but thanks to Frank's awesome photos you can't tell, he really captured the moments that mattered most and managed to only take pics of the things that went right and that looked great. That is the mark of a great photographer! Frank was right by my side when it mattered to capture all of the family and friend shots I wanted to get, and they turned out beautifully. He had our memory stick with all our high and low-res photos ready within like 2 days of the wedding which was AWESOME. He was also extremely gracious about my sleeping through our planned meeting time and even waited for me without rushing our meeting even though I told him I would have been happy to reschedule and come to him, wherever he was. He was very forgiving and kind and I'll never forget that. Frank is a true gentleman, a great businessman and most of all a wonderful photographer. I highly recommend him to anyone. THANK YOU FRANK!! ***Quick note to anyone planning their big day: Be sure to think ahead of the shots you don't want to miss and let Frank know specifically ahead of time (i.e. shots of the wedding rings, etc.). Whatever you ask him to do, he will listen attentively and will be sure to capture it. Wedding days can be very chaotic so this information is very important for the photographer!***

I can't even remember how we found Mr Chan, but it worked out great. Frank was completed agreeable to our requests and worked within the church requirements and low light. A week after the wedding he gave us a flash drive with all the pictures and loaded an extra set onto a hard drive for me. We had a bride-less wedding, and specifically asked not to have the super-imposed, glamour shots you see from many weddings. He delivered exactly as we asked, and at a very reasonable price.

Frank is first and foremost a true professional. Yet, he does it with a low key, stealthy approach so that capturing the truth of the event always comes first-- he is never in the way, yet his camera is everywhere capturing the truth of the moment. He possesses an artistic eye for sure, still he is also keen to document the story of the event by paying the closest possible attention to detail and properly sensing how to accurately convey the feeling of the event. He brings passion and joy to his job, and for certain these qualities are matched by true photographic talent. He is delightful to deal with (all his communications are quick and polite) and he is charming in person which allows him to put those he is photographing at ease. He gives his photographs a strong narrative feel as well, like is he telling a story from beginning to end. And his decency is beyond compare as he offers his services at a price that is affordable and fair for the working class (it is important to realize that he offers his photographs completely to his clients with no obligations to pay for printing or licensing rights, which is amazingly unique!). He is a true gem of a person and the consummate professional. We loved our wedding pictures and without his services we would not have been able to afford to capture our lower budget weddding. All viewers of the photos agree, however, that the photos are top quality! We feel so grateful to him! He provides high resolution, creative photos at a truly affordable price. You can trust him to capture the beauty of your event as he patiently listens to his customers and will be wonderfully adaptive to your wishes. Beyond a true bargain, if you hire him you will have an honest, reliable, and talented person to capture the beauty of your event. Such a rare thing these days-- top notch service with impeccable style at a modest price!

I was in need of a photographer for my wedding. I came across Sentimental photos website and decided to call the owner Frank Chan. I then met up with Mr. Chan two days after. He was a very easy person to talk to and was just pleasant to be around. He is a very professional photographer and loves what he does. The day of my wedding was just spectacular. Chan took several shots and got every important moment. The pictures turned out better than what I had expected. I would highly recommend Sentimental Photos. Thank You Frank for all of your hard work!

My girlfriend found Sentimental Photos online for her own wedding. I had the opportunity to work with them when I coordinated her wedding day. After spending an entire day with them and watching the way they worked, I decided to book them for my own wedding.
Before signing the contract, I met with them. They showed me some of their work and selected photos that were specifically relevant to my wedding. My wedding had some traditional elements to it, so they made sure to show me how this type of activity would look.
On my wedding day, they showed up on time and were engaged for the entire day. I got all the photo files in about 2 weeks after my wedding. They were very affordable compared to other photographers. Over all I'm very happy that I hired them; a great value for the money.

I chose Sentimental Photos because I liked the casual style of the photographs and because I wanted a photographer who was willing to give me discs with the photos instead of charging me an arm and a lef for a few photo prints. Frank Chan is not only a great photographer, he is a wonderfully kind person and is very enthusiastic and professional. He got at least 1 picture of each of the 100 people at our wedding, and gave me 6 CDs with nearly 1,000 photos from the wedding day. I was incredibly impressed with the photos taken! Prices have since gone up, but they are quite reasonable in comparison to other photographers that add extra cost by forcing you to purchase prints or albums from them.
