Why do couples love working with you?
As soon as I start on a wedding I am 100% focused on making the bride and groom happy. And always making sure we stay on schedule and get all of the photos that are planned and even ones they didn’t know they needed.
What do you love most about being a wedding photographer?
There is so much love and joy at a wedding, I love being around that and capturing the spirit of the bride and groom as they start their married life together. Witnessing their love allows me to create beautiful photos.
How did you get started?
When I was 16 years old, and developing photos (old school, before digital!) in the darkroom at LaGuardia High School, I had that “Ah-Ha” moment. The developing process felt magical and exciting..and always unpredictable. As for weddings, they are my life! I feel the frisson of energy between the bride and groom, not just while they’re waiting at the altar, but in the way they look at each other across a toast in a crowded room. It’s so exciting. I don’t just want to be there. I need to be there. I truly believe in love at first sight.
What 3 words best describe your wedding photography style?
Timeless, Mesmerizing, Edgy.
What budget range do you cater to?
My pricing varies from $2,800 to $12,000. This all depends on the amount of coverage you want, how many photographers you want, videographer, and album designs.
Lina is simply the best, most talented photographer out there. She is the only wedding photographer I “interviewed” and I pretty much signed the contract on the spot. Her bubbly and friendly personality assured me that I was making the right decision. From the beginning, she totally understood what I wanted and just “got it.” We also did engagement pictures with her and they were stunning. She was so creative with her approach- it amazed me. Then comes the wedding- WOW!!!! The pictures were UNREAL! We will forever get to live our wedding over and over and over again because there was nothing that Lina and her team missed. They were literally in the action and captured all the best shots. I remember even seeing her team dancing along to the music and shooting pictures – that is dedication!!! The pictures are so amazing because it was so obvious how much Lina and her team actually cared about getting all the best, most amazing pictures (I don’t think I can say the word amazing enough!!!) It was such a pleasure working with Lina from day 1. As I mentioned, she is so friendly and warm and it is just so easy to work with her. Not only was my wedding a dream come true, but so are the pictures— and I will have those forever. THANK YOU, LINA!!!!!!!!!!
Best Decision! We were so grateful to have Lina Jang as our photographer! Lina was extremely responsive and professional, and we truly appreciated her flexibility. She allowed us to customize our package (including videographer who was superb), and she even made the two-hour trek with us by train to Philadelphia for our engagement shoot. Even in this new location, Lina’s natural instinct and creativity were apparent, as well as her ability to make us feel comfortable and confident. The photos turned out absolutely stunning -well surpassing our expectations! Also, based on her vast experience, Lina provided us invaluable advice in planning our wedding day schedule, from the necessary timing for the essential activities to the best locations and ideas for our first look and bridal party photos. I would absolutely recommend Lina for your big day. You won’t regret it!
When you are looking for a photographer who is going to capture your day, Lina is the one. After our engagement photos, we were so thrilled that we had so many wonderful photos to choose from that we knew that our wedding day would be remembered forever with a beautiful album by Lina. Lina took the additional time to walk around the wedding venue, Battery Gardens, where she works frequently, and step by step described the type of photo that would be taken. My husband and I are extremely thrilled with her work and so in love with our wedding album. Thank you Lina! Can’t wait to work with you in the future.
