We're so glad we found Danya. We came across her work while browsing through a friend’s engagement photos on Facebook, and I went straight to Google to find her contact information.Sent on 12/11/2017
There are so many good things to say about Danya and her work. After I reached out and checked her availability on the wedding date, she suggested that we meet in person to discuss what our expectations were for a photographer, and talk over any questions my fiance and I had.
From our first interaction, Danya became such a trusted advisor for us during the wedding planning process. I honestly had very little idea of what I wanted the wedding to be like, or what I should be planning next. I remember having a few venues I was interested in, and I asked Danya for her thoughts on each one, and she was able to give me feedback from a photographer's point of view. Photos are so precious to me, and I'm so glad she was able to provide factors I should consider when searching for a venue because it affects the outcome of your photos. The amount of thought and attention to detail from Danya was irreplaceable.
On top of that, she was super responsive every time I needed to reach her. She even sent periodic updates and check-ins to ask us if we had any questions, and in turn asked us questions to prepare herself for the shoots. I particularly appreciated how organized and timely Danya was because I had so many things going on during planning/wedding day, and it gave me extra peace of mind knowing that she was on top of everything.
Shooting with Danya was also great. I'm notoriously awkward in front of the camera, especially in posed photos, but Danya kept things really relaxed and had great ways of making me feel natural. The photos turned out so beautiful and candid!
We were so lucky to have found Danya for our engagement session and wedding photos and highly, highly recommend her! I know if I need any photo sessions in the future, Danya will be the first photographer I call.

Professional, experienced, and amazing pictures
Danya is a professional and skilled photographer and we are so glad that we chose Danya Chen Photography to capture our engagement and wedding photos.Sent on 07/20/2019
The preparation for both photo shoots went very smoothly. Danya clearly explained what to expect and how to prepare for the photo shoots. We especially appreciated her thoughtful suggestions when we were deciding where to take our engagement photos, and how to schedule the day of our wedding.
Danya’s communication during the photo shoots was excellent. She is very experienced and made us feel comfortable and natural even though we weren’t used to being in the spotlight. During our wedding, she also did a great job of organizing all the family and group photos. We noticed that she was really good at communicating with all age groups, from kids to our older guests.
The pictures themselves are amazing. We are very happy with the quality of the pictures, and we also received more pictures than we were expecting. We were also impressed but how fast she finished editing and getting the photos to us. She gave us a preview of the pictures the day after, and gave us the full album within two weeks of our wedding. Danya captured every stage of our wedding beautifully and we couldn’t have asked for better pictures of our special day.
