About Me – Lily Chen Photography

shanghai wedding photographerPINIMAGEWelcome!


I am so excited you are here!  I’m Lily, a Shanghai wedding photographer.  I’m from the old city of Calcutta in India.  It’s where I grew up, before I ventured into the world beyond.  I went on to study in Toronto and Hong Kong and then lived in Hong Kong for 7 amazing years.  It was during this time that I met the love of my life.  We had a very long long-distance courtship across Europe and Asia.  It was tough!  But LOVE prevailed!


Eventually we married, and lived for a few years in the beautiful land of Belgium.  I have always loved taking photos with my little camera to capture memories.  But it was here in Brussels, that I delved into the art of photography as I embraced the slow European life, beautiful nature and charming architecture.  I wanted to capture memories, for us, our life, and then… I began to do it for others.


It is my aim to personalise the experience for each client – because each one is different and unique. Its what makes love so beautiful – its always different – but it is still love. I am now based in Shanghai and shoot seasonally in Belgium (every summer!).  Whether you are planning your prewedding, wedding or anniversary in Asia or Europe, get in touch – I would love to know your story!  Head on over the the contact or email me at lily@lilychenphoto.com for more details or for a tea (of coffee) date!
