Sweet Lighting Photography is a high-quality wedding and event photography company led by Chen, based in Tampa Florida, serving clients throughout the local area, including St. Pete and Sarasota as well as across the state and the country.
Chen shot our wedding on Treasure Island, FL. We had a rainstorm, changed from outdoor to an indoor ceremony, and pictures in the rain. The pictures all came out amazing and you’d never know it was raining. He was great to work with, helpful with figuring out a timeline, what pictures were important, flexible with our changes and produced gorgeous shots. My older sister used him several years ago for her wedding; he was an immediate choice for mine. He’s not just a Florida wedding & event photographer, he’s an amazing storyteller.

Chen saved us! Our photographer bailed two weeks before our wedding. What a blessing in disguise! Chen was easy to work with and very creative! I’ve only seen a sneak peek of our photos, but I’m blown away! You won’t be disappointed, Chen goes above and beyond to capture all the details and special moments of your big day.

ABOUT CHEN OF SWEET LIGHTING PHOTOGRAPHY
CANDID | NATURAL | INSPIRING
“Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.” – Dorothea Lange. I am more than a photographer; I am your storyteller who transforms sweet moments into images that last a lifetime. Whether it is your wedding day or special events, every moment has its story, and my goal and propose are to transfer that story into images that you can go back.
Graduated from the University of Florida in Journalism, I have traveled around the world, met many amazing people and documented their stories with my camera. With a strong journalistic style in photography, you will experience stress-free and true candid moments in my photo sessions. Whether at the sunshine beach, a lovely botanical garden, or the historical landmarks, I have worked in an array of venues and conditions. Your only “job” is to enjoy the moments, and I will do the rest.
The relationships I develop with my clients are built on strong trust and understanding. From the moment you email me with an inquiry, I am committed to creating a portfolio that exceeds your expectations. The connections I have made with my clients throughout the years have evolved into cherished friendships, and this has strengthened my passion for the work I do.
With the passion for photography and enthusiasm for learning your stories, I will do everything I can to make your day a memorable event that you will be proud and eager to share.
Chen did both our engagement and wedding photos. He did an absolutely amazing job! He caught all of our iconic moments and gave us memories to cherish forever. I can’t wait to use him again when we start to grow our family!
