I have been photographing weddings, along with events, portrait, product, studio, and scenic photography for many years. My main wedding / portrait domain is in and around the Half Moon Bay-Coast side area of California. For an extra fee, I will travel to other parts of the Bay Area.
I enjoy to shooting weddings, and am very comfortable with large groups, as well as small intimate gatherings. I don't work by the hour, but by the job, which means that I am flexible. After shooting your wedding and portraits, I'm also available for your wedding reception (for an extra fee). I especially find great joy in outdoor natural settings, because you can't beat nature's beauty, but I'm just as creative with interior locations - in church, or other architectural scenes.
My photography equipment consists of professional digital Canon equipment, coupled to Image Stabilizer lenses, for ultra-sharp photos. I carry a full backup camera system, just in case. All images are written to a CD, DVD, or USB Flash drive, and are of very high resolution, plenty of information for almost any enlargements or crops you wish to make. You own all of the images with full legal rights. They can be uploaded to a server, or you can bring the CD to a printer service for enlargements. Of course, they can freely be shared with friends and family.
My Digital Services Specialist and I make certain that every photo is painstakingly optimized for color, contrast and sharpness ,using Adobe Photoshop. Your files are always with us, and backed up on three external hard drives for security.
Many photographers provide full-service packages, but years ago it was clear to me that I didn't want to spend hours and days organizing negatives and photo albums, along with tons of paperwork and decisions to be made. So I made up my mind to do what makes me happiest - just photography! This keeps my prices as low as possible, but does not sacrifice quality. I hope this explains why we do not provide a wedding album service. Instead, I'd much rather concentrate on bringing you beautiful and memorable images that will last a lifetime, and more. - Michael A Wong

Michael Wong is an excellent photographer who has provided services to many of the bridal couples at the Douglas Beach House. In addition to being an excellent photographer, he is very flexible and accommodating and easy to work with. We highly recommend Michael for your wedding (or any other photography needs.)
Michael Wong is a truly professional wedding photographer! I have officiated at many, many weddings with Michael as the photographer, and have seen firsthand his creative and highly cooperative interaction with couples and heard their sincere glowing praise not only of the end results of his photography but also of his friendly and freely given help in other areas of their weddings. It is a pleasure to endorse him and his studio, Spring Mountain Gallery in Half Moon Bay, CA. (Rev.) Edward Andre www.sandpiperceremonies.com
