Stephen Tang is your guy, and this is why....
My fiancé and I chose Stephen Tang as our engagement photographer and we are so extremely happy with our pictures! To get to the point... here is what YOU CAN expect from Stephen Tang - dynamic, stunning, crystal clear memories, somehow made into images that evoke all the emotions you are really trying capture in the first place! What you will NOT have to worry about when you are in the capable hands of Stephen Tang is any cold, staged, blurry, or nonsense images. I'm telling you, no need to look any further, Stephen is your guy!Sent on 04/22/2019

Great eye and made perfect use of our time.
We hired Stephen and a second shooter to photograph our wedding and Stephen worked with us to find out what we were hoping to achieve.Sent on 08/02/2019
He got great shots of the setting, family and guest reactions, and all of the important moments of the ceremony and did it while also being inconspicuous.
When we got our photos back we saw moments of our ceremony that we’d already forgotten even though it was only a couple weeks prior.
The day of your wedding goes by so quickly you’ll be glad you have lots of great photos and Stephen overdelivered on his end of the bargain. I highly recommend him!

Stephen is a genius
I love Stephen's work so much I asked him to drive to Arizona for my wedding weekend. He did so gladly, and was such a welcome addition to our rehearsal dinner and our wedding.
I was so happy to work with Stephen because I was very tired of the light-airy-nothing wedding photo styles I kept seeing. And shot wrong, wedding can look very cheesy. Stephen is the antithesis of this! Stephen's photos are vivid, have personality, seriously capture the moment, and are unforgettable and a little bit artsy. He has an incredible talent for catching emotion.
Honestly, I can't sing his praises enough. I am so, so happy with how all of our photos turned out.
