I’m Benny Chiu, the B and C of BYC Photography. I’m also a husband & father to our son. So what does Y stand for, you ask? Y is for my wife, Yvonne. The woman I love and married and the mother to our precious son. I created the name BYC because of its symbolism. In every stage of life my wife has stood by me and supported me, so to me, it is only fitting that even in my business, she anchors me.
I am also very fortunate to have a father that documented every step of my life from when I was born until I was old enough to capture my own memories on camera. I was able to look back at the stacks of photo albums and reminisce about my childhood that I may have forgotten over the years. Growing up, I was the guy who took pictures of everyone and everything. It is the same reason why I am a wedding photographer. I love people, I love to laugh and I love pictures that bring back memories. I live to document life, emotions, true love and your personality as it happens. You may even find me crying behind the camera because I care and I am that invested in your story.
My style can best be described as clean, modern, photojournalistic, artistic, and vibrant. I am an available light photographer, which means I can work in all types of lighting conditions. I recognize that you are entrusting me with documenting one of the most important days of your lives and I don’t take that duty lightly. I work with my couples to meet their individualized needs and on the day of the wedding, I will be making sure all those details you worked so hard on will be captured. I also do my best to create a relaxed environment for you during our sessions so that the images are natural and reflects your personality.

REAL CLIENT REVIEWS:
"We met Benny at a local coffee shop after finding him online and hired him on the spot. We really liked his energy and enthusiasm about his profession, as well as his camera abilities and confidence to shoot a night time wedding (since our ceremony started later). Throughout the wedding planning process, Benny would take the initiative to check in with us every month or so. As the big day got closer, he visited the venue since he had not been there before, sent us examples of photos and shot lists, and shared several emails/phone calls with us. He was hands-on, easy to get a hold of, and shared in the wedding excitement with us. On the wedding day, Benny showed up on time at the hotel to shoot the wedding party getting ready. We had a large wedding party (7 bridesmaids and 7 groomsmen, plus family) and Benny brought along an assistant to help him throughout the day/night. We had some unexpected rain on the wedding day so we had to make the best of taking some pictures inside, but they still turned out really nice. Benny did an excellent job capturing our wedding and all of the special moments we shared! We are so happy that we hired Benny as our wedding photographer and have heard from several guests that the photos turned out amazing. We would highly recommend Benny to other couples seeking a talented, professional, and nice photographer to capture their wedding day or other special occasions. We would also recommend the additional purchase of a wedding album through Benny. We just received ours and it is definitely a lifelong keepsake!!" - Angela & Brian
"Benny, owner and photographer of BYC photography is the most AMAZING photographer I have ever met! My husband and I hired BYC photography for our wedding last weekend, 5.6.17 and they did a wonderful job!!! From the time we booked with Benny, to our engagement shoot with Benny (which were beautiful photos btw), to the hundreds of emails, to the day of, Benny was so informative, helpful, professional, personable and prompt. He far exceed our expectations! On our big day, Benny and his team felt more like friends who were there to celebrate with us, as they helped us remain calm and and coordinate with all of our other vendors, all while capturing our most memorable moments!! They thought of candid pictures that I would have never been able to imagine and I really appreciated how throughout the day, Benny would show me sneak peaks of pictures he took on his camera so I knew they came out beautifully! I would definitely recommend BYC photography to anyone planning a wedding or milestone event! My husband and I feel like Benny is now family and will be booking him for all major life events (like maternity photos) in the future. Thank you for making our day so magical!!!" - Tanya & Clinton
We hired Benny to travel up to NorCal to photograph our wedding upon the recommendation of my sister-in-law and we couldn't be happier with our choice. Benny is extremely professional but super easy to work with. We had immediate rapport and loved his enthusiasm, professionalism and passion for his work. You automatically feel happy around him which makes for great photos. He gives great instructions, knows how to engage kids with awesome sound effects, and is incredibly organized and prompt with communication. We appreciate his ability to create both posed shots and candid photos which we feel more comfortableHe's already been hired 3x - 2x by my sister-in-law for family and 1x for my wedding - by our family alone and I'm sure there'll be many more times that he might just eventually become part our family! We highly recommend working with him! - Kat & John
