I was contacted by Daniela and Patrick only about 40 days before their wedding date . Little did I know that it was no ordinary wedding. Daniela and Patrick are from Germany but have chosen beautiful San Francisco for their wedding ceremony. They met in Germany over 10 years ago and while Daniela was a foreign student in San Francisco, Patrick came to the Bay Area to visit her. They both agreed how much they love it here and vowed to come back and marry here one day. It took them many years to make this dream come true. They didn’t have any solid plans, just booked flights, hotel, officiant and my photography services. When Daniela arrived to the US, she scouted a location with a great view of Golden Gate Bridge for her wedding ceremony. I recommended Joey of Jbeautique for her beauty needs and connected her with Monica Kau of Signature Bloom for flowers. Everything was last minute with not much thorough plans. Daniela met Joey for the first time on her wedding day at my photography studio in South San Francisco without a trial session beforehand yet, she couldn’t be happier with her look. And when Monica delivered her bouquet, Daniela beamed with happiness. Her dream wedding was coming together piece by piece. The ceremony was short, sweet and perfect with the beautiful and iconic Golden Gate Bridge in the background. When Patrick saw Daniela that day for the first time, he couldn’t hold back the happy tears. They exchanged vows at Crissy Fields and then we headed to North Beach area for wedding portraits and ended the session at Baker Beach. I love how these photos turned out, it is filled with love and joy in their expressions.

Daniela is getting beautified by Joey, see how excited she is. Joey is my favorite wedding makeup and hair stylist in San Francisco
They picked Crissy Field as their wedding ceremony venue, look at her “walking down the aisle”
That was a very touching moment when Patrick saw Daniela the first time.
Beautiful intimate wedding ceremony just two of them and the officiant.

What could be better than making your favorite family picture a wall canvas and hang in the living room. It is also a great way to decorate your empty living room wall. I have photographed Linda and Alex’s family in November and they decided to make a wall canvas for their living room , one 20″x30″ for grandma’s house and another JUMBO SIZE 60″x40′” for their own house !!! The picture you see is a 20″x30″ , yes, it is looking tiny in this big wall which will soon to be hanging a 60″x40″. To schedule your family portrait session, please email me email@example.com for more information . We travel everywhere, just let me know :)
See more of our album product here, we only make beautiful stuff :)
20″x30″ wall canvas just arrived our studio
This canvas is ready to be delivered, it barely fits in my trunk, looks like I need a bigger car. I like to deliver album product as much as I can, I like to treat each client specially.
This 20″x30″ is for their grandma’s house. A bigger size will be on this wall !
Have a lot of stunning images from Whitney and Shaun’s wedding, want to show you a sneak peek image first. This is a picture I took for Whitney after she got ready at the Fairmont Hotel San Francisco. I love this picture of her, she looks so beautiful, her Vera Wang dress fits her perfectly. If you would like to have more idea of getting married at Fairmont Hotel, email me .
November and December are usually our peak seasons for family portrait. My approach of family and children photography, is to create an environment that everyone have fun and you will see a lot of interaction going on between family members, I want my client look at the pictures 10, 20, 30 years down the line, they will still remember these joyful moment in their life, this is the philosophy in all my portrait photography.
This is a portrait session I did for Dylan, Jennifer and Talis who is turning 2 :)
Every time I finished shooting a wedding, the next thing I look forward to, is the album design and the making. Look at this elegant and classy wedding album for Marie and Brian, they choose the bark brown fabric cover and I customized the name plate for them (instead of a picture on the album cover). One more happy couple :)
Our high quality wedding albums is one of the main reasons our client picked us as their wedding photographer, please feel free to schedule a time to visit my studio in South San Francisco to check our all our album collections by Chung Li Photography
