Captured the glamour we were looking for!
My husband and I were drawn to Stephen's photography because of his use of shadows and the contrast of colors in his images. We contacted him and upon meeting, seeing more of his work, and getting more information about his services, we were sold.Sent on 12/01/2018
Stephen did a spectacular job on our engagement and wedding portraits. He is not only very professional, but extremely meticulous and creative with his craft as well. He is keen on lighting, so he knows how to take exceptional photographs in darker settings.
We loved working with Stephen and intend on reaching out for further events. He's very friendly (we hope we're friends now) and is very attuned to the requests of his clients. We requested vintage glamour shots for our engagement pictures and he was thrilled to work with our vision. He loves creative projects, so we highly encourage anyone to hire him if you're looking for more of an 'nonconventional' shoot away from the standard outdoor sets. Ask and he'll deliver!
Stephen Tang Photo's reply:Thanks, Jennifer. I had a great time helping you capture your engagement and wedding visions. It was refreshing to take on a wedding in a low light venue and to produce studio photos for your engagement session. I look forward to working with you again in the future, friend!

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 Tang Photo's reply:Thanks for the glowing feedback, Brandan! I'm glad there to document everything so that you can be present at your own wedding. You have my recommendation for being a great client :)
