Amazing experience with Aevitas/Henry
Our search for the perfect photographer began with a list of companies provided to us by our wedding planner. We chose to work with Henry Chen at Aevitas Weddings because his style was the best fit for the vibe we were aiming for, and we couldn't have been more pleased with our decision. Henry was absolutely perfect from start to finish and completely surpassed our expectations. He understood that we wanted to eschew many conventional aspects of weddings but that ultimately, we still wanted to have a wedding. He also had extremely informative guides detailing exactly what we needed to do at each step and how we can ensure we are prepared, whether it was for the engagement photo session or for actual wedding day. Henry is also one of the most patient and truly kind individuals we have worked with - he constantly reassured us when we felt overwhelmed and stressed out by our schedule, and he made a tremendous effort to keep us at ease when there were a multitude of things going on at the same time. He also was just an awesome and pleasant person to hang around - he has mastered the art of arranging and taking our photos while still taking the time to have meaningful conversations and get to know our family, wedding party and friends.Sent on 01/09/2020
One of the challenges that Henry handled with ease was incorporating our 90-pound German Shepherd Dog, Toffee, into both the engagement photo session and wedding day photos. Henry did a phenomenal job setting up the photos with Toffee, and it was not an easy task to get her to sit still and to look at the camera. Henry had to call her name constantly and try to get her attention, but his hard work paid off because he took some absolutely beautiful photos of her.
For our engagement photo shoot, Henry had helped us come up with a detailed itinerary for three different locations. A few days before the shoot, we suddenly had a change of heart and decided that we wanted to change up two of the locations - when we finally decided on which locations we wanted, it was already the day before the shoot. We wrote an apologetic email to Henry asking if it would be okay if we changed up some of the locations - not only was Henry very flexible and supportive, he also drove out to those locations on his own to scout them out the morning of the shoot. Our favorite photos from the shoot ended up being at a location (abandoned railroad tracks in South Los Angeles) that we found spontaneously because an accident had occurred where we were originally planning to shoot and we couldn't access the area. But all of this is a testament to Henry's professionalism and skill as a photographer in that he can roll with the punches and helped us come up with creative poses tho fit the surroundings of the area.
More nerve-wracking than the actual wedding day was all of the preparation leading up to the day. But Henry kept us on track by having us fill out a lengthy questionnaire that he then reviewed with us in detail for about an hour. The questionnaire and interview turned out to be pivotal tools for Henry to utilize in creating our final minute-by-minute schedule for wedding day. Then on the actual wedding day, we had rented a small apartment to get ready in; Henry fully utilized the space and also did a great job keeping the bridal party and groomsmen separated as much as possible. He was also especially accommodating because we didn't have a cocktail reception at our wedding, and so it was tremendously difficult to have to squeeze in photos with extended family members; we ended up having 20 different groups of family members and Henry handled the entire process so efficiently. During the actual wedding, Henry and his assistant were always nearby, ready to snap photos of us and our guests. He also worked extremely well with our videographer, making sure to ask our videographer if he had enough space to get the shots that he needed.
Lastly, we were beyond impressed by how quickly Henry presented our photos to us. Within two weeks of the wedding, Henry had published a sneak peek on his blog, with a detailed write-up of the entire day's events. We are so thrilled with how seriously Henry takes his job, knowing that he is a crucial part of our special day and all of the months of preparation leading up to the wedding. He kept us at ease in the midst of all the stress, made sure we were running on schedule, and most of all helped us enjoy the day as much as possible because we knew we didn't have to worry about our photos looking amazing. We definitely recommend Henry and Aevitas Weddings if you are looking for a truly amazing photographer who will also make your wedding experience as stress-free and fun as it can be.

The best decision you'll make
Future brides, one of the most important pieces of advice I can offer you as you plan your dream day is make sure that you love your photographer as much as you love your dress. I promise you're on track do just that after you finish reading all of these FIVE STAR reviews and book Aevitas Weddings. From our first email exchange to the big day itself, Henry was responsive, friendly, helpful, organized, attentive, and kind. He truly cares about his clients, and it shows -- I mean, he knew all of our parents by name! But his work truly speaks for itself. We could not be happier with our wedding photos. From the portraits to the candid moments, Henry captured every moment with both detail and whimsy. Thank you, Henry!Sent on 03/24/2020
