Amazing artist photographer captured our zoom ceremony
When the coronavirus pandemic upended our wedding plans, my partner and I decided to still get married. Since we didn’t take engagement photos, I really wanted to take photos on the day-of our wedding. The photographer that we hired for our wedding lives outside of the Bay Area so that wasn’t an option for us. I came across Duy’s photography back in 2018 on instagram and I really appreciated the aesthetics of his photos. After we had the initial phone conversation with Duy, we knew we wanted to use him.
Duy was incredibly flexible, we wanted to take portraits in the morning to capture the right lighting and then he came back that evening during our ZOOM ceremony. Since our ceremony was 100% remote and in our living room (not the most beautifully decorated) I wasn’t sure how the photos would turn out but when I first saw the teasers, my heart bursted with love. He captured every emotion: the nervousness as we said our vows, the love after our first kiss and our parents faces as they beamed with joy.
Duy was able to capture such a historical moment, not just for us but for generations to come. Our children will be able to look at our photos and know immediately that we got married in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. It takes a real artist to capture the emotion and essence of a ceremony in such a unique setting with no friends and family in attendance, other than via zoom, and at a venue (our condo) a fraction of the size of any reception. I was a bit heartbroken that our families were hundreds of miles away and separated by borders that are indefinitely closed but these photos brought us together.Sent on 01/12/2021

After selecting an absolutely gorgeous wedding venue, we knew that our number one priority was finding a talented photographer who would be able to capture the beauty of the venue and as well as all of the special moments on our big day. We knew just from scrolling through Duy's portfolio that his photography style, which was full of energy and vibrant colors, was exactly what we were looking for. Duy was extremely responsive via email and was so flexible when we had to alter our plans after the pandemic hit. He was easy to communicate with and put us at ease with his calm demeanor. My husband and I aren't used to being in front the lens of a professional photographer, but Duy was so patient with us and somehow managed to turn all of our awkward giggles into works of art. That's true talent! He and his second shooter were never obtrusive on our wedding day and were able to capture so many moments that I didn't even realize they were there for. We are so lucky and grateful to have our wedding day memorialized by Duy. Thank you so much!Sent on 01/16/2021

Duy was great!
We were looking for a wedding photographer to shoot our special day in late summer 2020. Duy quickly replied to our inquiry and soon went about getting to know us and what was most important to us on our wedding day. We had two locations for different parts of our wedding day. Duy was very flexible, going above and beyond to optimize for the best photo opts in light of it being during COVID.Sent on 01/18/2021
On the day of our wedding, he was punctual and had a very positive attitude throughout the day. He was considerate of what we highlighted, making sure the key moments from our tea ceremony were captured. We were amazed at all the candid moments he captured! Our couples' portraits were stunning! He worked with us to find locations that were meaningful to us and even accommodated a wardrobe change. Our families and friends loved our wedding photos! We would highly recommend Duy to anyone looking for a photographer in the Bay Area.
Duy Ho is not only a great photographer. You can see in his photography that his talent is capturing the details and emotions of what he is shooting. He is very professional when working in a team and also has a very personable attitude. I recommend having Duy Ho as your photographer for your special day and special occasion(s).
