JAMES did an excellent job on our pictures for the wedding. We had a large bridal party and he was very patient with us all. It was a day to remember.


We were and still are very pleased with our wedding photos taken by Studio 9 Photography! Thanks again.


The pictures I got from Studio 9 Photography were great. Our Photographer, James Chan went out of his way to create a package fit just for us. He made everyone in my family & the bridal party comfortable and was able to capture perfect pictures during the ceremony without taking attention away from the wedding itself. Thanks James -

My photographer and his assistant really took the time to find out what my needs and wants were. They were not intrusive on my wedding date and I found them to be very warm, comfortable and accommodating. Their patience and professionalism were apparent especially when they had to deal with the chaosness of that day, which included dealing with my many relatives and friends. I wholeheartedly recommend Studio 9 for wedding photography needs.

Thank you, Maybelle Filler


James did an amazing job! Not only was he very easy to work with but he listened closely to exactly what type of pictures we wanted and what we didn't care for. He blended right into the group at the reception and captured the excitement and love of such a special day. We continue to hear four months later just how great James was and how everyone from family and friends were impressed with not only his photographs but his professionalism and attitude towards our special day! We would strongly encourage anyone to use Studio 9 Photography for any event! James was amazing!

We had a wonderful experience using James as our wedding photographer.  He was extremely easy to work with and a number of people at the wedding commented to us afterward about how friendly and professional he was.  And of course the pictures came out great!  Throughout the entire process, from signing the contract, to the engagement photos, to the day of the wedding, and getting the pictures completed, he was very responsive and accommodating of our requests.  After comparison shopping of many different photographers, James's value stood out from among the rest and without the hassle of complicated packages and high-pressure sales tactics.  We would highly recommend him!

James is awesome! He takes great photos, beautiful and journalistic! His photos tell a nice wedding story and remind us of every happy moment

we had on our wedding day. James is also very flexible. He worked with us on our budget and designed a perfect package to meet our need.

We felt so lucky that James was there on our big day. He gave us many helpful tips on how to relax ourselves, and he is so experienced and thoughtful!
Everyone we invited to our wedding was happy with James. They wish to know how to contact James. One of my friends even thought of asking James to shoot her
daughter's wedding someday. Believe it or not, her daughter is only three years old!!! James is a great photographer.

We will recommend him to anyone we know and we don't know.

While searching for a photographer, I was getting a bit dismayed to see that most charged for a whole day, or had very limited packages for people with a budget.  Of all the photographers, only one offered a per hour charge without limiting the number of pictures and requested a minimum of only two hours.  And he exceeded my wildest expectations!  After my first meeting with James, I was impressed not only with his samples, but also with his personality.  When my wife arrived in Seattle, he met with us again, and we both knew we had chosen the right person to capture our memories.  At the wedding, he seemed to connect with each person in a way that relaxed all of our guests and bring out very natural, yet elegant poses.  His manner and words had calmed both Stephanie and me at the most tension-filled moment of the evening, and allowed us to enjoy our special day.  Our guests did not notice James move around during the ceremony, but we ended up with fantastic photographs from every possible angle and viewpoint.  I believe that our pictures are as great as they are, and our wedding as wonderful as it was, because James knows weddings, and because he knows people.  He certainly knows how to take great pictures.

Dear James,


For us, choosing a photographer was the hardest part of preparing for our wedding. We didn't know anything about wedding photography,

and there were just so many photographers advertising in the magazines that we were overwhelmed. Literally hundreds - it was difficult to know where to begin.

We were able to get a very good sense of your prices and services from your website, while so man photographers would not surrender that information without a

phone call, an email, or a face to face meeting. Since our time is so precious to us, and was more so while trying to plan a wedding, we really appreciated that.

The most important thing though, was that you really listened to what we wanted, which was tons of pictures of all our guests. You covered the basic formals,

but didn't force us to take a lot of contrived shots we weren't interested in. You really did a great job capturing everybody there, in a natural way,

and everybody thought you were incredibly polite and unobtrusive.

We could not have asked for a nicer, more professional photographer, and it was such a relief to have one less thing to worry about on the big day.


Thank you,

Nicole Johanson





Working with James was such an easy thing to do, because he made it easy.  James was very willing to accommodate all of our needs and wants for our wedding.

He went the extra mile to make sure we were able to fit in all of the pictures we wanted and worked well with both family and the ceremony running

behind schedule.  James has an extraordinary eye for photography which shows in all of the shots from our wedding.  As far as quality versus quantity,

you get both with James.  We received a lot of time, and photos for our money and the quality is top notch.  If we ever need photography services again in the Seattle area,

Out first call will be Studio 9 Photography.  We definitely recommend James to anyone who is looking for a photographer - for wedding or any other event!


Nick and Valerie Pounders





We were very happy with James, he worked with us on our budget, and he
took beautiful pictures.  He already came recommended, but I just
couldn't say enough nice things about him.  You won't be disappointed!

Mr. & Mrs. Goodman

 we which we will treasure for the rest of our lives. We have to mention the patience you had with family member paparazzi’s.

"We thought you did a great job.  Your pictures really seemed to capture the moment and there

was a good variety with unique shots.  We felt your presence at the wedding wasn't intrusive at all,

and you were very friendlyand easy to work with. Thanks for a job well done."

"Allyn and I were so lucky to find James's service. He was very personable and easy to talk to about what we
needed photographed during the wedding and how. James offers a great flexibility with his wedding packages.
We didn't need to worry about the price because he didn't have a requirement of a thousand dollars or so

start-up package like most photo agencies do; nor we needed to agree with required pre-made packages. With
James the sky is the limit. "I can work with anything you need for your wedding pictures" he said when I
talked to him first time on the phone. An he did. On top of all, his photography is amazing. He was able to
capture every memorable moment of our wedding with ease. The tears, the laughter, the hugs and kisses,
and the meaningful moments during ceremony and reception were all captured by James in no time.
Allyn and I are grateful for the work and talent James devoted to our wedding. Thank you Studio9Photography!"


Allyn & Dima Long

"The photo portion of our wedding plans went on without a hitch. My wife and I shopped around

and chose Studio 9 Photography for it's quality and value.  James was a pleasure to work with

and took care of every detail with his personal service.  We would definitely use Studio 9 Photography

again.  Professional.  Accommodating.  Finest in quality."


Dave & Kim Chin





"Of all the different people we worked with to create our wedding day, James was the best. He was

accommodating, professional, and reliable.  Above all, he took the time to ask about our likes and

dislikes, and the photos he took represent that.  We couldn't be happier with the quality (and value!)

of our wedding photos!"


Brenda & Eric White





"My husband and I were extremely happy with the wonderful service, and photo's we received on our

hectic wedding day.  With James' professionalism, great eye on details, and consideration for our

large and wacky families.  Our special day flew by without a hitch.  Thanks again, James for putting

up with all of our silliness"
