My name is Carissa Woo and I am a Los Angeles based wedding photographer. I am a hopeless romantic and "In LOVE with LOVE". Having been immersed in the wedding industry for 5 years and shooting over 120 weddings, I have the magic formula to capture your wedding beautifully. My studio is in Torrance and it's what I called a taste of "wedding photography heaven". I would love to hear about your big day.
What is your style of photography?
Many clients are gravitated to my work because of the color and also they say that the couples look like they are having so much fun. My work is romantic because I honestly believe that my clients are truly madly deeply head over heels in love.
What is your philosophy towards weddings?
The engagement session is very important. It gives us a chance to really get to know each other and feel comfortable in front of the lens. The itinerary is very important. I work with my clients to make a perfect itinerary with photography in mind. I am very prepared before the big day, so when it finally arrive everything always goes smoothly. I'm very energetic but not intrusive.
What is your price range of services?
Most of my clients spend 3k-5k.
What does this include?
I have 4 package. They vary from the number of hours and products that I offer including albums, canvases and prints.
Do you shoot with an assistant?
Yes, I always have a second shooter to shoot from a different angle/perspective or help me set up my light stand or even fluff the brides dress. We sometimes split up, he shoots the boys while I shoot the girls before the ceremony.
Will you be the one shooting the wedding or do you hire out other photographers as well?
It's always me. I hear stories all the time where they will book a photographer and then someone else with show up, it's a huge disappointment.
Do you shoot film and/or digital?
I am a hybrid shooter meaning I shoot both. There are advantages of both. When I edit, I make my digital images look like film.
After the wedding, how long until the proofs are ready?
I am fast. They are on my blog the week after your wedding and you receive all of your images and album proof 1 month after your wedding day.
Carissa Woo is fabulous! We knew we wanted a phenomenal
photographer for our wedding day and didn't know where to
go.Carissa came highly recommended from our wedding coordinator,
Nicole Alexandra Designs, and I am so beyond thrilled we chose HER for
our wedding day. I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions we
made, as I know we will forever value and treasure reliving the special
moments from our engagement photo shoot, rehearsal, and our big day. I
could have never imagined such a wonderful experience.

It was a joy and a pleasure to work with Carissa Woo. Carissa stepped in after our original photographer canceled on us as0 she was referred to us by our wedding coordinator. Carissa was just a joy to work with from the engagement photos to the end of the wedding. The engagement photo session was so much fun and Carissa made my groom and I feel very comfortable and she captured the joy and love that day. On the wedding day she took many behind the scenes photos of me and my wedding party and family, capturing special moments that would not have been captured otherwise. She was not intrusive and really seemed to love her work. At the reception she took pictures of each table, giving a special memory to each of our guest. The finished products were great. We highly recommend Carissa.
