Ian is an amazing photographer and couldn't be happier with how our pictures turned out! My husband and I did a simple ceremony at San Francisco City Hall on August 5, 2016 and Ian was able to capture the magic, love and amazing structures of City Hall for our special day!
Since he was familiar with the venue, it was a breeze to get the best angles that both showoff the space and how handsome we are :)
Ian also got our family in order for their shots and listened to our requests. Everyone who has seen our pictures have complimented how awesome they were and we have Ian to thank for that!
Look no further for someone who is flexible, knowledgeable, and captures the memories of your special day!
Thank you again Ian!

Ian is AWESOME!! My husband and I had a last minute elopement (with our two daughters) at San Francisco's City Hall, and we needed a photographer to capture the moment. Luckily, Ian was available.
About two days before the ceremony, I realized that we needed a witness....which of course, it just being us and our girls, we didn't have. I asked Ian, on short notice, if he could be a witness for our wedding, and he graciously said, "yes, I'd be honored to." He arrived early (before us, in fact), and as we were waiting for our marriage license, he began taking pictures.
The moment I met Ian, I felt that we were in good hands. He is extremely professional, patient, creative, and kind! I had no idea what type of style I wanted for our photos, and that was fine, Ian took care of it all. I plan to hire Ian again on our next trip to San Francisco for a second round of family photos.
Pick Ian Chin as your photographer, you definitely wont be disappointed!
Thank you for all the wonderful memories, Ian!!

Ian is just awesome! My partner and I used him to capture our San Francisco City Hall wedding moments and were amazed at his photography! Ian proved to us that you don't need to pay big $$ to capture your special moments! With Ian you "don't just get what you pay for"; you get so much more and from such a kind person! He was so professional from our first dealings with him till we received our finished photos (they were wonderful by the way)! We almost skipped on having a wedding photographer, I am so glad we didn't and thank you Ian!

We hired Ian for our SF City Hall wedding, 6/19/15. This happened to be the same day as City Hall's 100 year anniversary party and the whole rotunda was roped off, but luckily he knows all the beautiful secluded spots that make for great photos. We hired him for an hour and a half, which I think was just the perfect amount of time for the ceremony, a couple of family shots, and both posed and candid of just the two of us. He made us both feel at ease and brought out our true smiles, which can be hard to do. Thank you Ian for our lovely photos!!!

We worked with Ian to take pictures of our elopement at SF City Hall. We didn't know what to expect since neither of us had much experience posing for photos. Our time with Ian turned out to be amazing and so much fun! He was professional, creative, and very obviously knowledgeable of the venue's sweet spots to take awesome shots. On top of that, he was friendly, patient, and extremely considerate. We were beyond happy with how the pictures turned out and we highly recommend Ian for your wedding photography needs.

Ian did a fantastic job with our wedding photos at City Hall in San Francisco. He advised us on how to schedule the photos to make best use of the space, what to expect at City Hall, and where to take group and individual photos. We had a very large and unwieldy group that he charmed into position with deft and polite instructions. Everyone raved about his amazing ability to quickly position the group and take gorgeous photos in a short period of time. We feel so lucky to have found Ian and worked with him. I don't think we could have found anyone else who could live up to his amazing skill. We also really appreciated that he gave us the negatives for the photos when he was finished. We cannot recommend Ian highly enough.
