Professional portrait photographer and videographer are tasked to film your wedding and make a memorabilia out of it, like photo albums and hard drives that include all the raw pictures and the edited videos they took with different types of cameras and other equipment on your wedding.

This way, when things come up during implementation (like technical difficulties or last-minute changes), your wedding team already be familiar with each other’s work style and approach so they can move forward together smoothly instead of having to start over from scratch.

Here are some reviews from our clients in Boston, Massachusetts:
“We booked an engagement shoot with Nicole. We had such a great experience from the initial booking through receiving the photos. We were really nervous as this was the first time we’ve ever posed for professional photographs, but Nicole was amazing. She was so friendly and personable and her directions were so great it put us at ease almost immediately. She has a great eye for capturing and was able to find backdrops and compositions that really made out photos pop with contrast, complemented our outfits, and really showed the candid emotions on our faces. It also was great to know that she had so much experience photographing cultural and fusion weddings (I’m Chinese and my fiancée is Indian), and truly understood some of the difficulties we had planning a fusion wedding. We received the edited photos faster than I could imagine on the same day. We would not hesitate to recommend Nicole Chan Photography Company to anyone getting married!”
“Nicole Chan should be everyone’s first choice for Boston wedding photographer!
We were so glad Nicole Chan Photography was available on our daughter’s wedding date to create some beautiful photography. Nicole was incredibly organized and professional throughout every step of the way… For example, before our daughter’s wedding, Nicole zoomed with us and asked great questions to get to know us and also to get us thinking. After our meeting, Nicole shared excellent articles and blog posts she had previously written which were full of thoughtful tips. These articles helped us accurately imagine our wedding and figure out what pictures and video we really wanted. Well before the wedding, Nicole shared a google doc with us so we could add in the most important wedding pictures, video, etc. Nicole was on-time, talented at her craft, and went above and beyond her job description. She was organized and direct about getting the various groups formed for the portraits. She had the exact right balance of organization, professionalism and warmth. She was friendly and respectful to everyone and put everyone at ease. The photos Nicole Chan took were phenomenal! Gorgeous video and artistic photography! My only problem is which pictures to frame and which to include in albums, because so many photos are outstanding. Our daughter is so happy! So are we! I give the highest recommendation for Nicole Chan Photography!”
“We had the absolute pleasure of having Nicole Chan Photography and one of her amazing team members in her award winning videography company, Victor, at our wedding. I could write a novel on how amazing they both were, but I don’t think I have enough room on this website. They were absolutely phenomenal. Our entire day was such a pleasant experience with both of them. They were so professional, and made us feel inspired, comfortable and calm. There were moments where I didn’t even know they were there, and I think that is one of the many things that makes a good wedding photographer! We had so much fun doing our day of them. We’ve gotten a handful of them back and we are absolutely blown. The quality and creativeness of the moments she captured in the photos are unbelievable. They captured such special candid moments of our day, memories that we will cherish in our family for decades to come. Thank you so much, team Nicole and Victor!”
