assisting for sarah k chen

the other day i was browsing through twitter and saw sarah’s tweet about needing a new assistant for the wedding season this year. i was fortunate enough to start assisting for sarah that very weekend, and i have been having an absolutely amazing time!


sarah just posted her highlights for that first wedding that i assisted at on her blog, and you can see her beautiful pictures here. kathryn and chris had a stunning wedding out at the st. regis monarch beach resort in laguna beach. i was thrilled to be helping out, and spent my time trying to learn sarah’s gear (like how to add new film to her contax!). i was able to meet sarah’s second shooter jen there and it’s been a ton of fun and a fantastic learning experience working with them both :)

i’ll be assisting sarah on several weddings this season, and will post some of the pictures that i take as a third shooter (i didn’t take pictures at kathryn and chris’ wedding, i needed to spend my time focusing on how to assist!) and hopefully as the year goes on, the practice and benefit of seeing pros in action will help me to become a better photographer! yay!

sarah takes both digital and film pictures, which i adore. her photography is elegant, classy and timeless, and you can check them out on her website at or her blog at

her awesome second shooter jen, who was her assistant last year, can be found at
