Choco Studio was started by Mike and Nat in 2005 and we've now photographed over 300 weddings as a team. We love to develop a real connection with each of our couples. We photograph large events as well as intimate San Francisco City Hall weddings.
Your wedding day will move ahead at a relentless pace, barely letting you catch your breath. You know the feeling when you're with your lover and the whole world seems to stand still?
We want to bring you the gift of having such moments on your wedding day. Your wedding photographs should be of moments when you actually feel something. Not staged, but inspired wedding pictures of real emotions and authentic love.
We love to document the day when a couple commits their lives to each other. Your wedding day is when you'll likely feel most open and unguarded about your love for each other. Not afraid to show emotions. To be grateful for the gift of loving someone with all your heart and to be loved in return.
Choco Studio allows you to remember the wedding day without turning it into a photo shoot. Our goal is to photograph real moments and to be unobtrusive throughout the day.
We are San Francisco wedding photographers that capture the day in a documentary style. Whether you're having a big weekend celebration or a beautiful San Francisco City Hall wedding, we know you want an affordable wedding photographer who knows all great great photo locations and how to get the best angles.

My fiancé and I were lucky enough to have Mike take our engagement photos with our dog, Finn, last month. Taking into account the ease of the experience, the final product, and the overall cost, we are so happy with our decision to go with Choco Studios and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to hire a photographer for any purpose.
While searching for a photographer, I noticed that a lot of studios put limits on how many shots you could keep from your photo session (as few as 3!), and would charge extra per additional shot. With Choco Studios, there was no "catch" or hidden costs - for one very reasonable price, you get the photo shoot and a digital copy of all final photos (typically 80-100 photos) that you can download, print, and keep forever.
Mike is extremely easy-going and flexible to work with. He accommodated our preferred shooting location in the Presidio in SF, and made us feel very relaxed and comfortable during our session. One huge plus for us was that Mike was not only agreeable to - but actually really enthusiastic about - including our dog Finn in our shoot. Having a fellow dog owner and lover as our photographer made the experience really fun and enjoyable, and he captured really stunning shots of Finn.
Within 2 short weeks, Mike sent us a digital copy of the final 102 shots from our shoot, and we were very happy with the result. He takes beautiful, natural photos, and in our case we really felt that our photos reflected us as a family and our personalities.
***Tip - if you have a particular vision or style/aesthetic for your photo shoot, I would definitely recommend expressing that to Mike before the shoot. For example, I selected some of my favorite shots from his previous work and explained what I liked about them, which gave him a better idea of what we were looking for and who we are as a couple. I was really happy that we had that conversation beforehand, because I think it was definitely reflected in our photos.

I am so happy I go to work with Mike and Choco Studio for my San Francisco City Hall wedding! I am positive the day would not have gone as smoothly had Mike not been there to walk us through the day! He has friendly and professional from the start of requesting a quote to the end of receiving the finished products. He had a quick turn around, and I adored every picture. I honestly think Choco Studio was our favorite vendor we went with for our wedding festivities! Nothing against my other vendors, but Mike went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied. Mike captured some really beautiful moments on film that I cannot thank him enough for! Could not recommend Choco Studio enough

My husband and I hired Choco Studio for both our engagement and wedding photos, and were very happy with their work. Our photos turned out great, and we really appreciated Mike and Nat's professionalism, especially while we faced a few hiccups on our wedding day due to unpredictable weather. We also loved the personal touches that Mike and Nat brought to the mix - they invited us over for dinner after we hired them so we could get to know one another and we would feel more at ease during the photo shoots, and they even sent us a sweet note immediately after our wedding congratulating us and letting us know they had started to work on our photos. We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.
Choco Studios photography is one of the finest out there! They were so easy to work with - and when it came down to the wedding day - I didn't have to remind them what they needed to do or where they needed to go - a Planners DREAM! Looking forward to working with them again in the future!
Great team to work with and very professional at what they do!
