THE PORTRAIT EXPERIENCE
JEN HUANG & CHIALI MENG
The "Portrait Experience" is a a signature collaboration between photographer Jen Huang and beauty stylist Chiali Meng. This editorial-style portrait session redefines pre-wedding, glamour, boudoir and bridal portraits. While it is primarily designed for a bride or a wedding couple, solo portraits, maternity and families are also welcome.
Our process begins well before your session, with a conversation that determines your personal aesthetic and vision. This careful curation and design helps express a cohesive story, while the use of medium format film and natural light preserves and highlights timeless beauty.
The full investment for this special series is $5,800 and includes the photo session, hair and makeup, location fees, creative direction, floral details, and the use of Jen's personal collection of bridal attire, accessories and antiques. All images from your session will be delivered to you as high resolution image files for your personal use. The pampered experience lasts a half day (approx. 5 hrs) and is enhanced by music and sparkling wine.
