Hello! My name is Roddy Chung and I'm a wedding and portrait photographer based in Seattle, WA. My style is often described as timeless, creative, documentary with some fine art and dramatic twist.
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 and convinced him that "it was required for a class." To tell you the truth, I didn't learn much about the basics of photography from that class. If I took anything away from that class, it was that I knew my camera and I would 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 it allowed. So from then, I started honing my skill by taking photos at school events and doing headshots for friends. Little did I know then that those experiences would plant the seed for my own wedding photography business!
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 capture your wedding day in the most unique way possible. I love experimenting with different angles and approaches. So be prepared to have some fun!
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).
But winning an award is nothing compared to winning the hearts of the couples who trust me 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 best award ever.
After photography, traveling is one of my all-time passions! And it gives me great joy to travel to many different places doing 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.
Reviews are KEY when it comes to hiring the perfect wedding photographer. After all, wedding photography is a long term partnership. You'll want someone who is not only good at his/her job but someone who can wear multiple hats on the wedding day. (Sometimes I'm a wedding photographer, a planner, or even a coordinator!) SoI 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!
