They are amazing photographers!

Amazing! April and Steven are simply amazing photographers who produce beautiful photos for real people like us! My husband and I were quite camera shy and did not want to do cheesy pose. However, we did freeze when the camera was pointing at us. April and Steven knew exactly... Read More how to get us relaxed and be natural while they snapped many photos of us. They really have great eyes for beautiful shots. On the wedding day, they scouted the venue quickly and found many beautiful locations for us to take pictures. We couldn’t believe how lovely the pictures came out until we saw them. We received countless compliments on both our engagement and wedding photos. We feel lucky to have them as our wedding photographers.

As I review my wedding photos weeks after my wedding, I couldn’t help thanking God that I picked the right photographers. The photos are not only beautiful, but lively and real. I can totally relive the wedding day through them. Not just ordinary fragmented memory of the event,... Read More but all the details, emotion, atmosphere, energy, and tons of special moments that were captured so BEAUTIFULLY allowed me to have a complete memory of the day. And since they were so beautiful, I wanted to review the photos and thus the memory again and again. Right after my wedding, I started worrying if my make-up and hair were a bit overdo, and if my dress looked too loosen on me, and etc.. I checked FB for the photos our friends posted and thought to myself “that couldn’t be representative of the way I looked!” I contacted April and Steven, and they quickly sent me a few professional photos of myself on my wedding day. What a relief I had after seeing their photos. I look great! The color, the shape, the angel, and everything were just right! Now the photos and video are the only things left that keep the wedding day alive for us and our families and friends. The photography cost worth every penny, and I am so glad that I picked the right photographers for our wedding!


They really love what they are doing!

We were so happy we hired April and Steven! They arrived a bit earlier than scheduled time then they started to take detail photos. After a short while, Steven left to take care the preparation for groom. I heard they had a great time. April took many candid shots of... Read More bridesmaids and I. She also directed a little bit to make us look great. They were everywhere and nowhere. Most of the time we weren't even notice them, we were busy partying of course, but they sure took tons of photos and captured all the moments. Both of them knows how to speak Mandarin and April even knows how to speak Cantonese so that's a big plus to all my oversea relatives when it comes to organizing group shots. They are friendly and passionate and lively. Some of my family and friends even took a group selfie with them! We had a blast on the day, and April and Steven surely made us worried one less thing because we know we can trust them in terms of taking beautiful photos!

Very satisfied

Reviewed on 10/29/2015

The photos came out wonderful. On our wedding date, April took care of the bride, and Steven came to take care of groom. The bridesmaid and bride had a great time and fun during the preparation. I can see it later on in the photo, didn't miss a thing. Steven hang out with... Read More us, took tons of photos and made us look cool. Saved the day by helping and teaching us to fold the pocket squares. Must be hard to be a photographer these days that you need to have multiple talents. The day went smoothly and we are very satisfied with the photos. They are beautifully done.

My husband and I were so glad that we chose April and Steven to capture our engagement and wedding. The photos are beautifully captured. They don't mind going extra miles to get the perfect photos. When we were "stiff" at the beginning of our engagement photos, they didn't... Read More push us to get the photos done. Instead they took it slowly and made sure we looked good and lively.

Our parents apparently carry the albums around to show their friends and co-workers, so that might be a downside?

April and Steven took beautiful pictures on our wedding day, and the value you get for your money is just incredible: two expert photographers all day for a really low price. We had an engagement shoot as part of our package, which was really helpful in getting to understand... Read More their style, and for just learning in general how to have pictures taken of us. We got more comfortable making suggestions, creative in interpreting their ideas, and more willing to try new things. If we were uncomfortable trying something, they didn't push us at all. On the wedding day they were totally prepared for every eventuality. April hung out with me for getting-ready photos, while Steven was with the groom. They both seemed to have our shot lists and timelines memorized because they nailed everything. They also had all kinds of supplies for keeping us looking our best. We didn't have any spinach-teeth but I have no doubt they had floss just in case. They were always available to run over to take a group shot on request, but otherwise were completely unobtrusive, especially during the ceremony. The pictures themselves were awesome, and when I consider they had to contend with the ill-timed camera flashes of my photo-crazy relatives, it's even more of a miracle. One particularly difficult set of shots was trying to get all 100 guests into one picture. Getting our families to do anything coordinated is like herding cats, so I was super impressed that Steven managed to get everyone in the picture, and everyone looking nice! There was also a lot of creativity going into the "detail" pictures, and efficient use of time: April used the light and nice features of my parents' house to take pictures of my dress on a hanger, and my jewelry and shoes, while I did my sister's makeup. Steven took pictures of the rings and invitations while the groomsmen did some venue setup. One of the ring pictures, I have no idea how he did it--it looks like it was taken in a studio with carefully controlled lighting to make them glow from within against a completely shadowed background. They had our photos ready right on time per the contract. Communication was great too: they put our photos online and mailed the DVD of digitals at the same time. That made them easy to share and make prints of. We're so happy with how they turned out. Our parents apparently carry the albums around to show their friends and co-workers, so that might be a downside?


Everything We Wanted!

Reviewed on 10/29/2014 Emily O

April and Steven were the best! Starting with engagement photos last fall, they made us feel extremely comfortable considering neither of us were used to getting our pictures taken professionally. The engagement photos were extremely natural and did not seem forced, it was hard... Read More to choose our favorites! This continued through our wedding. They showed up early while I was getting ready with my bridesmaids and took some great candid shots of the morning as well as my dress, accessories, etc. We didn't do a first look so April stayed with me and Steven went with my husband and the groomsmen to take photos before the ceremony with family and friends. We barely noticed them throughout the ceremony and reception which was especially clear when we got our photos back because there were so many moments that we didn't even realize they were able to capture. They never put a time cap on our day and were there from the beginning through the last song, so they didn't miss a thing! The photos represent the day better than I could have ever imagined for and each time I look through them, I wish we could do it all over again! We would highly recommend April & Steven, they do a beautiful job and were worth every penny!

It was a joy working with April and Steven for our engagement and wedding photos. We had interviewed a lot of photographers, but their work really stood out to us. They have a wonderful photo journalistic style with a good mix of color and black and white photos. Before the... Read More wedding they asked me to complete a list of different shots I wanted. I included my "something blue" which was to be sewn into my wedding dress. While I was getting ready, April and Steven were going through the list and getting all of the shots I had requested. They quickly realized that the something blue had not been affixed to my dress by the seamstress. We were able to get it fixed in time for the ceremony. April and Steven saved the day! They have a fantastic attention to detail and are not obtrusive while working. They came up with some really cute and fun poses for my husband and I as well as the bridal party. I have absolutely recommended them to friends and know they have also been very happy with April and Steven's work.
