Quite simply, Sherman Chu knows how to take photographs that leave one spellbound.

Always the gentleman photographer and well tempered artist, Sherman Chu goes to great lengths to style the wedding album with a couple.

Following the wedding, he helps select the shots that best reflect the unique event.

Sherman was great to work with and he takes beautiful photos. He is a master at capturing great lighting and he works very efficiently. He works in the photo-journalistic style and does a great job of capturing the emotion of the moment and whomever he is photographing. We had our wedding on a Sunday in February and he gave us a great price for the quality of photos we received. Based on the body of work on his website, we expected to pay significantly more. He explained to us that he does his pricing like hotels, there’s a busy season and an off-season. We were trying to stay on a reasonable budget (hence the Sunday in February) so this worked out really well for us. He is like a photo ninja. He works alone but seems to be everywhere at once when looking at the photos. When looking at our photos in chronological order we can’t figure out he was able to capture all of the angles by while working alone. I believe he can bring an assistant when requested, but I don’t think it’s necessary. Our wedding had about 110 people and we got hundreds of great shots from him. Even better, while he’s running around getting different angles, he’s very inconspicuous. During our ceremony and reception I don’t even remember seeing him. He has a great sense of humor and that makes him enjoyable to work with. We did our engagement photos with him as well and were very pleased with the results. For the posed pictures with family members at the wedding, he was very good at getting people in and out so we didn’t have to spend an hour taking photos. While his style is more photojournalistic, he still did a great job of arranging us for the posed pictures.

He was incredibly quick in getting us the photos. In both instances, it was under a week. He gives you all of the original photos and there is no extra fee for that. I would definitely recommend him to a friend.

Sherman photographed our wedding this past weekend and we couldn't have been happier! We were never sure how vendors would react being asked to provide services for a same-sex wedding, but it was never an issue with Sherman, and he even brought photos from another same-sex wedding he had shot to our first meeting. From that first day to the day of our wedding, Sherman was responsive and professional, and made us feel comfortable. As many other reviewers have said, he is most definitely a wedding ninja; I don't remember seeing him anywhere, but the photos show that he was everywhere. It only took him 4 days to get all of the photos online, and they look fantastic. And this was all for an extremely affordable price. Thank you, Sherman!

Photos are stunning!! Sherman truly captured our special day and all the moments in it. He is flexible and worked with us to figure out our best game plan. Of course all of the posed pictures are amazing, but especially the candid photos of everyone interacting – the kisses, the looks, the laughs. The backdrops, angles, lighting... all of it is first class. At the end of our wedding day, we were getting a lot of compliments on our photographer. How that happens, I am not sure since no one had seen the photos.. but I am sure it has everything to do with Sherman doing his job so well. Honestly, in the beginning, the idea of only one photographer scared me a little, natural bride fears of will all the events and moments be able to be captured by one person? Needless to say, Sherman has obviously figured out the secret to being in a million places at one time, and if I could do everything all over again, I would do it exactly the same.

Love Sherman! I was a junior bridesmaid in a wedding 15 years ago and when I saw the pictures from that wedding I said when I get married I want him to photograph it, and lo and behold, 15 years later, Sherman was the photographer at my dream wedding! His pictures still amaze me as he is able to capture the moment like no one can. His pictures are timeless and pricess and I am so glad we choose Sherman to capture the most special day in our lives. Thank you Sherman!

Sherman is amazing! He really is the ninja that others mentioned. I really don't know how he got some of his pictured from one angle one moment, then the opposite angle less than a second later...he's amazing! Not to mention, he has a wonderful, fun, energetic, and comforting personality. Everyone at our wedding raved about him! And he was never up close blocking anyone's view, you didn't even know he was there most of the time. I would recommend him without resercvation!!!

Words cannot express how awesome Sherman Chu is, not just with the quality of work that he provides but also his personality. During the planning stages of my wedding, I came across his webpage and the moment I looked at his work I knew he was the one to take our wedding photos. His work is amazing! The pictures that he takes not only captures the moment but it tells the story of what happened during the event. Sherman is also so easy to work with. He has a great sense of humor and made the process, from beginning to end, such a wonderful experience.

Hands down the perfect guy for our wedding. The story he tells through the images and moments that he captures alone were enough...meeting him in person cemented the deal. He's the best and he knows it. And if you have 30 minutes, he'll tell you what photojournalism is all about. Not because he's trying to sell you...but because he wants to make sure you know what you want out of a wedding photographer. Christine and I loved his style. And the fact that he loves taco trucks. I'm not afraid to admit it...I have a man crush on Sherman. The dude ROCKS!

Thanks Sherman! Can't wait to see the pics!
