Autumn Leaves Wedding Photography

Darrel and Audrey’s Autumn Leaves Wedding Photography session was done in Los Gatos at the Presbyterian Church of Los Gatos and featured tons of autumn colors and leaves! Check it out! The colors made for some really unique and beautiful photographs. They hosted their reception afterwards at Dynasty Cupertino Reception Wedding.

Derrick and Lisa’s Ritz Carlton Wedding

Derrick and Lisa’s had their Ritz Carlton Wedding on a gorgeous day in San Francisco. We also did a shoot on Crissy Field as well as Fort Point. Fort Point is an amazing place to do a shoot since it not only sits right under the Golden Gate Bridge but also has so many nooks and crannies to vary the photos with.

Derrick and I were grade school friends eons ago, so this was a treat to be able to have the honor of shooting their wedding!

Check out their incredible wedding details held at the San Francisco Ritz Carlton.

San Francisco Wedding with Daniel and Janey

Chris and Kristy’s Lords Grace Christian Church Wedding

Chris and Kristy’s Lords Grace Christian Church Wedding in Mountain View . Photography by Lynn-Kai Chao. I love weddings that are focused on friends and family. It creates such a wonderfully cozy micro culture during the wedding that’s and absolute joy to shoot. Thanks for giving me this honor Chris and Kristy!

Months before we also roamed San Francisco to do their engagement session over by the Golden Gate Bridge. Check out some of the slick photos we got.

Palmdale Estates Wedding

It is always a treat to be able to shoot a wedding at the Palmdale Estates. Not only is it a gorgeous location but also the fact that it may not be here in the near future as I heard the land is being redeveloped. Check out Matt and Jess’s beautiful wedding held here. Their upbeat and outgoing personalities were really shown off at this venue.

Mark and Ying’s San Francisco City Hall Elopement Civil Ceremony Wedding done by photographer Lynn-Kai Chao. Mark and Ying just had a little ceremony with a shoot in the San Francisco Golden Gate Park Japanese Tea Garden. It is always nice to able to shoot a short day and have so much fun getting to know my client’s family and spend a little time with the clients themselves.

Kei and Jenn’s Half Moon Bay Oceano Hotel Wedding Photography by wedding photographer Lynn-Kai Chao. The Oceano Hotel is such a wonderful venue to host a wedding. Especially a wedding like this one on a sunny day.

We also had an incredible time during their engagement session of getting to know each other and wandering the city too. And of course we got some great shots.

Margaret and Kelvin’s Hassler Parkway Wedding Photography by photographer Lynn-Kai Chao. Hassler Parkway is one of those hidden gems that I can shoot at all day long. Its just a street but even a simple street can be a worthwhile location to shoot at. A great couple, great light and a great location makes a shoot all that!

Ceremony: San Jose Christian Alliance Church Reception: Joy Luck Palace Restaurant

Check out Chad and Nicole’s Newberry Library Chicago Wedding Photography. We did a shoot at Millennium Park and their wedding was held at the Chicago Cathedral. All these locations were incredible.

A Review by Chad and Nicole

Lynn was amazing. He was very patient with us as we worked through the booking process (we had a lot of questions, especially since we were a destination wedding for him!) and as we shuffled him from location to location on a condensed timeline in a city that was only familiar to us. He was adaptable when schedules/weather changed, accommodating to our needs, and most importantly, helped us stay comfortable and be ourselves (a challenge since we’re both camera shy!).

This is Roland and Ana’s HS Lordships Wedding Photography by Lynn-Kai Chao. They hosted their ceremony at Berkeley Covenant Church. Roland and Ana are good friends from my church so it was a pleasure and honor to be chosen to capture their day! Two great locations for a hosting a wedding for sure.

Check out their Treasure Island engagement session where we had fun roaming the more-deserted former military base.
