I can't say enough great things about our wedding photography experience with Xiaoqi. Not only is she an absolutely incredible photographer, her business acumen and level of customer service are second to none. She had regularly scheduled calls with us during the process, put together a timeline for the day of our wedding and sent regular thoughtful gifts (personalized cookies, gift card for a date night, etc). We were thoroughly impressed with Xiaoqi from the minute we interacted with her and she absolutely worked her butt off during our wedding - you'd see her running from place to place to make sure she got the perfect shot. She surprised us with a sneak peak of photos AT OUR VENUE the night of our wedding AND sent them to us via email so that we could share with family and friends. Thank you Xiaoqi for capturing our day and for providing us with such an amazing experience. We are so appreciative!Sent on 10/03/2020

Wonderful, professional, down to earth photographer!
Xiaoqi Li photographed my small intimate destination wedding in Great Exuma, Bahamas. I found her amongst many other photographers on a facebook board. I choose Xiaoqi not only because of her beautiful portfolio but because of her professionalism, friendliness, attention to detail and organizational skills. The last thing a bride needs is to worry about is one of their vendors. Especially, since our wedding was thousands of miles away. I also needed a videographer, so Xiaoqi partnered with the awesome Stephen James for a rockstar wedding duo. Xiaoqi’s intricate planning from start to finish was nothing short of amazing. All during the planning phases she asked photographer related questions, I hadn’t even thought about. It’s comforting not having to worry about any of those details on your big day. Xiaoqi was everywhere and no where at the same time. We felt like rockstars with them following us around the resort. Xiaoqi went above and beyond! Capturing so many great shots of us and our family and friends. We have so many great pictures to cherish now and forever. Xiaoqi delivered a wonderful final product in the end! We couldn’t be happier!
Tip: When it comes to wedding budgets, don’t skimp on your photo/video budget! It’s worth the money 10x over!Sent on 04/22/2020
Xiaoqi Li Photography's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words, Lisa! I'm so grateful for your trust in us throughout the entire process. I'm thrilled you loved working with us as much as we've loved working with you and can't wait for you and Tony to have your album in your hands soon :)

the best of the best!
We booked Xiaoqi very early on in our wedding planning process and knew that pictures were going to be one of the most important aspects of our wedding. Xiaoqi has exceeded our expectations for the last year and half. From our discovery phone calls to learn about one another to Xiaoqi’s attention to detail, climbing on banisters to get the perfect shot, her customer service, and laid back personality, she was our best investment yet! She is thoughtful, kind, and hardworking and takes pride in her work. Her work speaks for itself and is more than just a photograph or memory – her photos tell stories. She was also able to give us sneak peeks quickly and kept us on our toes until the final products showed up in our email! She helped us pick photos and developed an engagement album with us. On our wedding day, it rained and was chaotic and we had a huge wedding party, but Xiaoqi showed up EARLY, was flexible, and trucked through the rain and mud to get all the shots for our Chinese and Western ceremonies. She even had sneak peeks for us within the same night at our wedding! She is simply the best!Sent on 10/21/2020
