"All out weird."

This is the approach I take when I shoot a wedding day, to give you unique images and shoot beyond what the eye typically sees.

This is the motto for Ian Chin Photography to best cater to the offbeat couple who equally want offbeat photography.

Without a doubt, telling your story and capturing all the emotion during your wedding is the best part of being a photographer…but creating compelling images for you through creative use of light and composition is the best part of being an artist.

My goal is to always give you unique images that push the art of photography, while not forgetting the tears, laughs, and quivering lips that make your special day uniquely you.

Offbeat definitely describes my style because it veers slightly away from the traditional, cute, and sunny natural light images. Natural light is definitely the best light, but if thats all you shoot with, you are limiting yourself. I don't limit myself to natural light so I can give you the all out weird images you deserve!

It's why you're on this site isn't it?! 🙂

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

I cater to Offbeat Couples by giving them Offbeat Photography

I get giddy thinking of when I first learned how to create a rainbow manually so I could use it for a same sex couple…or the time I lied down in a sand trap on a golf course as the bridesmaid "wedged" sand over me while I took the shot.

I go balls out for my couples because they deserve it. If I'm not exhausted after a full day wedding I didn't do my job. I want non traditional photos to compliment my non traditional Clients, and put in the extra effort to do so.

Me? I wouldn't say I'm thaaat offbeat…but see for yourself if you'd like to get to know me a little better! 🙂

Here's my personal Facebook page.

It's mostly full of photography and yoga, FYI 🙂
