bay area wedding and portrait photographer audey shen

It all started when my dad noticed my passion for photography 15 years ago. In highschool, I was lucky enough to go on a National Geographic Photography Workshop in Costa Rica...and you could say the rest is history.

Hi! I'm Audey, a native California Bay Area Wedding Photographer born and raised in Palo Alto. Trained as a photojournalist, I aim to show the unique character of every client I work with because everyone has a story worth telling. I will give you creative vision, attention to detail, and a relaxed environment...all I ask in return is for you to be yourself!


When I’m not behind my camera, you can find me planning my next international trip, cooking new recipes, going on outdoor runs, or spending time with my two loves, Nick and our shetland sheepdog. If it sounds like we are a good match, I would love to get to know you over coffee (or tea!) and hear all about the special day you have planned!




heart. adventure. legacy.


heart. The fleeting moments, the laughter and tears, and the ones closest to you and your story are what I think make life worth preserving. My process starts from initial consultation to make sure we're the right fit so that I can capture the true emotions and energy of you and your wedding day.

adventure. I will embrace your vision while providing artful posing guidance in your beautiful location. I find meaningful and inspired work to be effortless and timeless portraits in multi-layered landscapes and environments.

legacy. Your photographs should be a unique reflection of your love story. In truly connecting with my couples, I will document your journey in its purest form, delivering photographs you'll want passed down for generations to come.

My time with National Geographic not only showed me what a beautiful place we live in, but also how important it is to protect the local ecosystems. Ever since then, I've always lived by the principle to treat nature and our surroundings with respect and care. I've opened a Print Shop where 100% of the profits go towards supporting a non-profit organization that protects ecosystems, provide employment for the locals, and combat global warming. Additionally, I donate a portion of my earnings to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, a beloved destination ever since childhood.

I've been to 29 countries so far, and with my love of adventure and new places, if there’s a location you want to be photographed in, say the word and let's talk destinations!
