Hey there, my name is China (pronounced CHEE-NA). I live in the beautiful Hudson Valley and shoot weddings all around the East Coast. I was raised in a family of image makers in New York City. My mother was a photographer and writer for the United Nations and my father was a freelance documentary photographer and filmmaker. At the age of 6 I got my first camera. I studied film at Bard College in Upstate New York. After graduating I moved to New York City where I worked in the film industry on music videos and independent feature films. I moved to Europe and I worked as an assistant for fashion photographers in Paris and then moved to Prague where I worked as a photographer for an English language news paper. When I moved back to New York I freelanced for The Associated Press and started photographing weddings.
I bring my experience as a documentary, portrait and fine art photographer to photographing weddings. My goal as a wedding photographer is to create a story of your day that is fun, whimsical, romantic and authentic.
