Seattle Wedding Photographer
Hello! I'm so glad you stopped by. My name is Roddy Chung, and I'm a wedding photographer serving the Greater Seattle Area and beyond!
Here’s my story
I picked up my first DSLR during my freshman year in college. I took this class called "Fundamentals of Photography." Being a resourceful son, I shamelessly asked my dad for a camera, convincing him "it was part of the requirements to take this class." I never really ended up learning much about the basics of photography from that class. But one thing did stick: my camera and I have become inseparable.
The early stages of my photography journey started out self-taught. When I first started, I never played around with any other settings on the camera except for the manual mode. I was so mesmerized by the amount of control you could have by simply adjusting the 3 lighting exposure triangle. So from then, I started honing my skill taking photos at school-wide events and doing headshots for friends. Little did I know then that those valuable experiences would plant the seed for my own wedding photography business!
Fast forward to today
I specialize in timeless, creative, and elegant wedding photography. Through my work, you'll see a good mix of photojournalistic and artistic styles. I want to present your wedding day in the most unique way possible with different angles and approaches.
Over the years my work has been featured in numerous publications. I'm a member of the Fearless Photographers and Wedding & Portrait Photography International (WPPI). However, winning an award is nothing compared to winning the heart of my couples who have given me all their trust to document their wedding. Each wedding is an unparalleled experience one after another. I'll never get tired of it. When the couple tells me how much they appreciate my service and my work, that's the most rewarding experience ever.
Seattle Wedding Photographer Serving Local Areas
I have always been an avid traveler. And it gives me great joy that I can travel to many different places to do what I love.
In the past, I have documented weddings in many different places. Local areas served including but not limited to Seattle, Bellevue, Redmond, Snohomish, Lynnwood, Cle Elum, Bellingham, Tacoma, Portland, Lynden, Spokane, Kirkland, Mercer Island, Woodinville, Issaquah, and Puyallup, Vancouver, and Lakewood. I've also done destination weddings such as Leavenworth, Washington and Morgan Hill, California.
My Photography Style
My goal is to create images that truly speak to you in the most unique way. I don't use any sort of film or vintage presets as many other wedding photographers do. Those are very popular and trendy nowadays, but you never know if those styles will still be popular in the years to come. Therefore, I strive to document weddings in a timeless fashion with some modern twists.
I'm always learning. I have been to many wedding photography conferences outside of Seattle and Washington to learn from the best. I aspire to have many different styles and look to incorporate photojournalistic, elegant, creative, timeless, and fine-art all together so I can provide you photos with lasting value.
Reviews on My Wedding Photography Service
References are a critical factor when it comes to hiring a wedding photographer. After all, we are not there to simply take pictures. Wedding photography is a long term partnership so we can ensure your big day goes as wonderfully as possible. Sometimes I even wear multiple hats as a wedding photographer, a planner, and a coordinator. I encourage you to read my reviews on my WeddingWire page located in the Seattle area. You'll find plenty of raving reviews about me so I don't have to brag here!
