I somehow hit the jackpot and all of my wedding vendor searches to find Jimmy. His worked stood out because it was very dramatic,unique and extremely photojournalistic. It is not your typical “pose here, turn your head there” type wedding photography —which we did not want. Jimmy is extremely charismatic and personable and makes you feel extremely comfortable. My husband is extremely shy but because of Jimmy‘s genuine passion and care for the couple he is photographing, he creates an energy as if are Long time friends when he’s photographing you and not a stranger! I have to start by explaining what an incredible engagement photo shoot we had with Jimmy. He was so patient and took photos of us at sunrise underneath the Brooklyn Bridge in the freezing cold with almost 4 outfit changes! He was super creative and found such unique angles that I have never seen another photographer capture . For our actual wedding Jimmy was extremely patient with our huge eccentric families! It’s not easy to manage all of the personalities that come together for a wedding and he kept his cool and was able to capture so many great and creative images. We absolutely loved his camera assistant as well. He had a very different personality and the both of them working together really balanced and created a dynamic duo well with capturing the most important day of our lives.I am just now seeing sneak peaks and cannot wait to see the full album. I also want to support the fact that this is his business and he is not part of some larger company. He really works hard for his style and I really hope that he continues to grow his wedding photography clientele base because he is a hidden gem!

Jimmy Chu is excellent and a real professional. We used him for our wedding in March. He was extremely attentive and very accommodating. He's got a great eye and the pictures came out extremely well. My wife and I were very thankful that we found him. Two major bonuses: we had our pictures back within a week and I would give him more of a 6 in the value department.

I highly recommend Jimmy Chu as your wedding photographer. My husband and I were thrilled with his work and are in love with our Wedding album! Jimmy has such a creative eye and ease about him. He is very down to earth, easy to talk to, and passionate about photography. He makes sure he gets to know YOU and brings out the subtle moments of your special day. One of the MANY great things about Jimmy is that he wants the absolute best for his clients and is willing to go that extra mile to capture moments you didn't even know existed until you see your photos!
We thank you so much for being our photographer and for doing what you do best!!!

I can not say enough wonderful things about Jimmy Chu and his work. My two sisters and I all got married in a 10 months span and we all used Jimmy so I have worked with him on three different weddings, and would Highly recommend him. He was hands down my favorite vendor. He is very easy to get along with and if you need a break or don't like a certain pose he listens to you, which is important because you want to feel fully comfortable on your wedding day. He takes very dramatic picture that are gorgeous, but also still captures candid's (which some are my favorite ones). He is a genius and I would recommend him to everybody. Don't even think about it, just book him!

We used Jimmy and his staff for our wedding. Let me start with his skills. On the day of our engagement photo shoot, I was literally hungover from my friend's bachelorette party and since we kept rescheduling our session, I decided to just go for it. We told Jimmy, we didn't want the typical pose or PDA photoshoot. Just capture US. So he did. He picked out the setting and the most random spots in Tribeca and the photos came out amazing. I did not look like I only slept for 2 hours. He really captured our chemistry on our engagement shoot. Now fast forward to our wedding. The pictures came out natural and candid as we want them to be. His techniques with lighting and natural colors really stand out in our wedding pictures. I am really glad our friends referred him to us. He is friendly and very professional. He is also very quick on sending out the pictures.

I don't know how I got so lucky to stumble upon Jimmy - but what a gem! He is truly a professional: on time, clear communication, CREATIVE as hell and cares immensely about his work. Jimmy is worth every penny and beyond. If you don't want cookie cutter wedding photos -- he is your man. Even though my "special day" was rained on and honestly not at all what I imagined it to be...Jimmy somehow salvaged it by presenting stunning photos that made me forget what miserable weather we had. I truly enjoyed working with him and would recommend him to anyone -- wedding or not -- he will capture the special moments that you'd want to remember forever.

Jimmy was outstanding! The moments he captured and shots he got are on another level! I was looking for a more editorial look for my wedding photos and knew he was the right photographer immediately upon seeing his portfolio. Jimmy was super accommodating for shots that we wanted and our timeline, and worked seamlessly with his second photographer throughout the night. He captured everything we wanted (and then some) & did it perfectly.
Ariel & James | The Piermont | Babylon, NY
Jimmy was amazing from start to finish! We planned our wedding in only 5 months and working with him made the process 1000x easier. Our initial meeting, he drove out to us to discuss packaging and was willing to travel for the engagement photoshoot. On the day of our wedding, his creativity shined through his gorgeous pictures and memories that he captured for us. Jimmy had amazing ideas for different shots and this made working with him so easy. He helped make this day so special for us. We are in love with all of our photos and can't thank Jimmy and his team enough for their expert eye!

Jimmy listened patiently to all of our requests. He paid attention to what our vision was and made sure our expectations were met! I just love all the pictures when they came out. He has such amazing talent, responds promptly, is very professional and accommodating. I am just so grateful we found him and had him document our big day. Would definitely recommend him in a heartbeat :)

We cannot thank Jimmy enough for capturing our magical day. The quality of the photographs are beyond anything we could have imagined. We constantly receive compliments from anyone who views our pictures. He made us feel very at ease and his creativity is astounding, Jimmy is simply amazing.
Maria & Peter | The Rockleigh | Rockleigh, NJ
Jimmy was so great to work with not just with us but with our entire bridal party and videographer. He was so professional from the very start and so easy to communicate with. He’s very talented and captured SO MANY cool/creative shots. What I liked most about him was that he was able to be so creative within every moment of our wedding day but still captured some traditional wedding shots that we asked for. We can’t thank him enough for all the hard work he put into our photos and album.

We are really happy we found Jimmy Chu!-- He was a pleasure to work with. We did our research into photographers and fell in love with Jimmy's work. We scheduled a time to meet and really appreciated his enthusiasm and warm vibe. On the day of, everything went seamless -- from capturing our first look in Dumbo, until the very end of our wedding. It is clear he is passionate about what he does and that he has an eye for it. From the pictures he showed us during the day and the few he's sent so far, we are definitely happy we chose him. We can't wait to see the rest of the photos in a few weeks.
Caitlin & Drew | Washington D.C.
I have had the pleasure of using Jimmy Chu twice this past year! The first time was an engagement session in New York City on top of the Rockefeller. Fast forward one year, and Jimmy travelled to Washington D.C to capture another great set of photos. Jimmy has unbelievable skill! His attention to detail and people skills are OUTSTANDING! Jimmy, I will see you for a third session in the future! Thank you for always going above and beyond to make our moments special!

Jimmy is amazing!!! I hired him for our wedding in May 2017 and engagement shoot in October 2016. He's a great photographer as well as a great person. He responds very quickly (e-mail/text) and is very professional. He always worked around our busy schedules and would meet up in places that were more convenient for me and my husband. He gave great advice- for example, he suggested we do our engagement shoot early morning (7 am) in Central Park for the perfect lighting and there were not that many people around so our photos came out great. He constantly kept in touch throughout the wedding planning in regards to timeline, other vendors (because he had to work with my videographer) and knowing who's in the bridal party/family. He always showed up on time for our meet ups and the day of. We have amazing candid pictures of our guests at the wedding and also great action shots of them dancing. We did a first reveal before the ceremony which the pictures came out amazing. His work is priceless but it helps that he was actually very reasonable in prices compared to the many other vendors I inquired about. I am so happy we went with Jimmy as we could only budget for one photographer on my wedding and he did what five photographers would produce. He took thousands of photos, he provided a website with passcode, a custom made USB and even threw in a large canvas in our package deal (which we hung up during the wedding)! Look no further, I highly recommend Jimmy!!!!!!!!

Jimmy was fabulous on our wedding day. Very passionate about his work, really friendly and easy to work with. We knew by looking at this other wedding photos before we booked him that he would be good but he was even better than we expected. We are really happy with our photos.

Valentino & Felipp | Central Park | New York, NY
Jimmy made this day such an amazing memorable wedding for my husband and I. I would definitely recommend him to anyone staying in NYC. We are from Dallas Texas and was very nervous at first booking a long distance photographer but he was very professional since day one and committed to his word, day/time and contract. The pictures came out amazing! I will be calling you soon Jimmy when we go to NYC again!!!!
