Claire and Chul
Travel PolicyNo travel fees within two hours of NYC. I love to travel so if you are getting married further away get in touch. I charge a $1000 set fee for domestic travel, and am happy to provide estimates for international weddings!
Describe your business in 1-3 short sentences.
I’m a photographer who loves candid moments and telling the story of wedding days. I watch for the small moments and love being in the middle of chaotic, high energy celebrations.
Why do you want to work with APW Couples?
Weddings should be as fun and stress free as possible. So while I take what I do very seriously, I love working with couples that recognize that their wedding is all about each other, friends and family, and an open bar complemented by a bangin’ wedding cake (or cupcakes, I won’t judge – just save me some).
APW is all about resources for couples that can have a sense of humor alongside a strong and unique vision for what they want out of their day. And that always equals great pictures.
Describe your artistic approach to weddings?
My goal is capturing the story of the day. I’m just as interested in showcasing small subtle moments and quirky personal details, as I am with documenting the big showstoppers. I have a background in photojournalism, and I use that to not only inform my style, but to make sure that I’m never in the way and interfering with what’s happening around me – while always making sure that I get the shots that matter most.
I want couples to be able to look back at their wedding photos and be able to recall all the awesome they felt
What are your non-work-related hobbies?
I wish I could say that I love making paper mache replicas of world heritage sites but what I really like is winding down with some Indian food delivery and British TV on Netflix. Somewhat unrelated, but I am amassing a pretty cool collection of vintage cameras too.
What’s your favorite book?
Hands down, it’s Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut.
What’s your favorite movie?
The Warriors, or anything with zombies.
If you could have a one minute dance party at your desk, what song would you pick?
Ok I’m gonna throw it back with this one… either Another Night by Real McCoy or Sell Out by Reel Big Fish
