Planning a wedding is hard enough even when everyone gets along.

Unfortunately, sometimes you love different people who do not always get along. Navigating your feelings and the […]

Planning a Wedding With Divorce/Family Drama

Emigration Canyon Spring Senior Caili Chung Photography

I can’t imagine a more wonderful place to be a photographer than Utah. The mountains, the city, the Great Salt Lake… All four seasons… Exceptionally good looking people… I grew up in this state, but I got into professional photography my senior year of high school, and then soon left Utah for 4 years for […]

Utah Photoshoot Locations

I love the Bay Area. I moved here a year ago to start college at UC Berkeley and photography has given me an opportunity to get out and explore some of the gorgeous places around. We have beaches and hills and trees and urban architecture and everything else you could possibly want. San Francisco is […]

First Steps to Planning a Wedding

Lovers Lane Presidio SF Engagement Caili Chung

For sure bring your pets to your photography session! Past couples and seniors have included them in sessions before and it’s always a good time. I love love love your furry friends!

Bring Your Furry Friends

Cinnabar Hills Wedding Rainy San Jose

We can’t control the weather. I usually book up months in advance, so rescheduling your photo session because of rain can be difficult. If it’s an option though, I’m sympathetic! But if it isn’t, don’t worry. As a professional photographer, it’s my job is to make you look good no matter the situation. Running around […]

What if it Rains?

Palm Event Center Winter Wedding Caili Chung Photography

First of all, just because you have a friend/family member with a nice camera, that doesn’t mean they can take nice photos for you! There is more to taking a good photo than having the right equipment. It is similar to how a professional chef can take the same ingredients as I can, but create […]

Thoughts from My First Wedding as a Guest

I dabbled in photography in high school, and then really committed to the business in 2017. I’m so lucky that 2018 was just as amazing, and I’m excited to pull back the curtain and share my 2nd ever BTS post <3 This year has been amazing and as I look back through these images, I […]

Behind the Scenes 2018

Garden Valley Ranch Wedding Pink Sparkly

A couple didn’t have a wedding party. I’d never heard of someone doing that before. But the more I thought about it, I loved the idea. You don’t need to think about coordinating dresses. Picking friends. Putting them in order. What about old friends you hadn’t seen in ages? What about sister(s)-in-law? If someone included […]
