REVIEWS FROM PAST WEDDING COUPLES
ONE OF THE MOST AND HIGHEST RATED WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.
Eileen & Vincent, Montage Laguna Beach Absolutely the best wedding vendor we had for our wedding!!! My husband and I got engaged May 2014 and as an excited fiancee, I quickly did my research for all of my wedding vendors, and got our date set for 8/29/15. I researched online and yelp and I can honestly say that no one comes close to how beautiful and emotional the photos that Henry from Aevitas Weddings can capture.
Monica & Iggy, Calamigos Equestrian During our consultation, we found Henry to be very professional & engaging. He had an entire Powerpoint set up & gave us a presentation of his services. I could tell he was very organized, methodical, and thorough, and he definitely put time into preparing for our meeting. When you’re dealing with the chaos that is wedding planning, these things matter. What’s great about Henry is that he gives you the whole package – professionalism and talent! He was flexible with his services and was able to slightly alter a package deal to better suit our needs. He was just a joy to work with.
Jennifer & Gabriel, West Hills Private Estate Aevitas Weddings is truly the all-time best wedding photography company. We initially found them on Yelp, but did not immediately contact them. We instead asked friends for recommendations, searched other sources, and read through at least 100 different wedding photographer web sites. We just kept going back to Yelp and re-reading reviews and checking the web site. We didn’t think we could afford him, his work seemed exceptional. However, we submitted our story (how my fiance and I met and became engaged). Henry responded, and was so personal, offered us different packages, all of which I felt were reasonable. I made an appointment with him (and two other photography companies).
Diana & Tom, Fairmont Newport Beach In summary, five stars without a doubt, if I could give Aevitas Weddings more than five stars I would! If their photojournalistic style if your cup of tea, contact them asap and you will not be disappointed. Photography was the second vendor we booked after securing our venue and wedding date. So it was very important to us and we were willing to set aside a healthy budget for it. It is an “investment” 😉 I will not be afraid to admit Yelp guided a lot of the vendor searching and Henry Chen Photography (now Aevitas Weddings) popped up on Yelp with stellar reviews and ratings. Ultimately, I let my now-husband decide as he was particularly drawn to Henry’s style.
Jeannie & Michael, Carmel Valley Ranch Choosing a wedding photographer was extremely important to us. It was the first thing we looked into the minute after we chose our date and our venue. I live in the Bay Area (Nor Cal) and without a doubt, the San Francisco Bay Area has some talented photographers. We came across a lot of great work but one evening, we stumbled upon Henry Chen’s website. His style and his portfolio immediately captured our attention and we knew we had to inquire further. During our first phone call, we discovered that Henry had just finished up a wedding shoot at our venue in Carmel Valley. What are the chances? It was like bells were ringing and the sun was shining down. The answer was clear – Henry was the one! During our skype consultation, we realized that for such an incredibly talented artist, Henry was very humble. He was kind, very passionate about his work, and overall a very positive person. It was an easy decision and we hired Henry right away.
Lilly & Steve, Spanish Hills Country Club Choosing your wedding photographer is a huge decision. There are so many photographers out there, it can be very difficult to make a decision. It is also a fairly significant expense, so you really want to know you are getting someone who is going to capture all the special moments. My wife and I are so happy and lucky to have found Henry. From the moment we had our first meeting, we knew he was the one for us. From the first emails we exchanged all the way to the weeks after the wedding, Henry’s professionalism was unparalleled. He was so responsive and proactive throughout the entire process. It was like having a wedding planner and photographer all in one. It reduced our stress level significantly to have a photographer that was so on top of everything. Henry guided us through the whole process, start to finish.
Edel & Ryan, Center Club Henry has become more than a wedding photographer for me and my family. He has done the pictures for 2 of our weddings and we consider him and his talented wife Charlene friends. Henry’s attention to the details in each moment show through not only in his incredible work ethic but also his professionalism and his amazing pictures.
Jennifer & Jesse, Bacara Resort And Spa Henry Chen FAR exceeded both mine and my husband’s expectations for a photographer for our engagement photos as well as the most special day of our life…our wedding day. Henry was fun, professional, outgoing, kind, caring, a TRUE master at his craft, and the list goes on and on. I have nothing but 5+ STARS for Henry (and his wife) in every area for capturing some of the most special moments of our lives so far.
