Hello, and thank you for taking an interest in Mike Chan Photography. I'm Mike Chan Saevang, a photographer from the Sacramento area. I started this company out of love and passion for photography about 10 years ago. I have always loved and appreciated the arts. As a kid, I wanted to be an artist or architect when I grew up. I loved to draw and paint, and I especially loved playing around with cameras and taking pictures. I have been learning and shooting for several years before Mike Chan Photography.
Three words that best describe my photographic style is ROMANTIC, MODERN, and TIMELESS. I try not to follow trends when it comes to taking pictures and editing. I like my images to look fresh, clean and as how I saw it. I am inspired by portrait and travel photography and always looking for ways to better myself. I shoot with a photojournalistic style; seeing how the day unfolds and capturing images that reflect it. I also know it’s important to have some fun on shoots, so I always make sure to keep things light and constantly moving along. I love weddings because of the celebration of love and unity with family and friends. When it comes to family photos and individual portraits, it's all about bringing out their personalities and capturing that moment in the best possible light.
On a personal level, I am married with two kids. My wife, Jenny, is my biggest supporter and also my second shooter! I couldn’t do this without her. I am also a home body, but I love spontaneous road trips, sight-seeing adventures, and visiting everything that is old and ancient. My dream goal is to travel and eat at different countries in the world because I love different cultures and food!
I love photography and creating images with my camera. I want to help you capture the moments that you can look back on years from now. Thank you for your interest and I look forward to working with you.
