In November 2012 we travelled from Auckland, New Zealand to San Francisco to get married at City Hall. Kevin was our photographer. Kevin offered us so much more than photography. He offered us friendship & support.

A day we will never forget! :)Sent on 05/18/2013

We found Kevin's incredibly elegant and artistic photographic work online and knew immediately that we wanted him and nobody else for our children's wedding in Carmel Valley. He is such a gifted artist AND a great person to work with - sensitive, understanding, generous plus a great sense of humor! He took the time to meet with us several times and to get to know us well ahead of time; and "you can't help but just love Kevin!" At the wedding, Kevin arrived early, reviewed the site, and then simply "disappeared!" During the ceremony, he was totally unobtrusive. Then he went off for a long photo session with the newlyweds through the park of the property.
We can't wait to see the finished product, but we are convinced it will be gorgeous! Next review to follow then.

Kevin's professionalism, creativity, calmness and ease to work with were exceptional. During the wedding day, it felt like he was not there, that is how good he was. At times for family photos, for example, however, he was very clear with directions and was very good at letting people know what was best without being "bossy" and overbearing. He was also great with kids. The outcome was beautiful posed shots of us the couple, family, the bridal party, etc. as well as candid shots throughout, both in color and black and white, with an amazing frame for the latter. They all looked natural and captured the moment perfectly. No awkwardness whatsover. We love looking at the pictures over and over again. Kevin has outdone himself and we would recommend him with no hesitation. Sure, he is not cheap but when it comes to unforgettable memories of your wedding, it is all worth it.Sent on 06/01/2008
Kevin Chin is one of those rare photographers that you have the honor to work with in the wedding business. His work is his art. His images are extraordinary. I remember the first time I met Kevin and looked at his portfolio. Although they were all strangers to me, I still remember those faces and images years later. He is able to capture those in between moments at weddings. That is an art! Those are the memories that will stay with you for a lifetime. Often times in the wedding industry, you may love someone’s images, but they are not always easy to work with on a high stress wedding day. That is simply not the case with Kevin. He is able to be invisible and in the background and yet oh so very present! Wedding photography is one of the most important decisions you will make on your big day. It will be a treasure you and your family will have for generations. Kevin’s work is timeless and exquisite. I highly recommend Kevin to all brides and grooms!
Kevin Chin photography is amazing. I've worked both with Kevin professional and personally and I couldn't have found a more professional and creative photographer. Do yourself a favor and talk to Kevin!
I had first heard of the great Kevin Chin long before I began my career in the wedding industry. I recall having asked my girlfriend about her wedding planning, and she had proudly listed out all of her vendors. Her eyes lit up when she named her photographer. She admitted that she was the most excited about this particular vendor. "He is one of the best wedding photographers! He's very well-known!" she exclaimed. Years later, I would meet this photographer that my girlfriend had gushed over... After meeting Kevin Chin, going through his portfolio, and having the pleasure of working with him, I understood why my girlfriend was so excited. Kevin Chin certainly is one of the best. He is superb at his craft and is masterful with film. He is always calm, composed, and professional. He is a true gem.
