Perfect photographer for a perfect wedding day.

A good friend of mine recommended to consider Yang Lu Photography for my wedding. Choosing a wedding photographer is not an easy task. My husband and I interviewed a few vendors, but Yang sent out because of his neat presentation. After our first video call, we knew exactly what to expect and everything was clear and easy. I asked like 1000 questions and Yang passionately answered all of them. After talking to several other photographers we did not doubt that we only wanted Yang Lu for our wedding.

The process: Yang created a rough timeline with recommendations. We had 4 video appointments in total: initial, mid-way, final, and extra final (we had to re-make our timeline due to daylight saving and we had to meet again to see what could be done)

Our package: we picked the most popular option with 2 photographers. I was skeptical if we needed 2 photographers, but in the end, I am so happy we picked 2. 2photographers mean more angles and a higher chance to capture those special moments.

Payment: Yang offers multiple different packages and a very convenient way of paying in incremental amounts, we had 3 payments, first (when we signed the contract), mid-way, and final.

Challenge: Our wedding was on Nov 5th, 2023 which was the day of daylight savings, and we didn't know about it till a week before our appointment. Originally we didn't plan to have the first look, but because we lost one hour of daylight we decided to change it and Yang was happy to assist in creating a new timeline

The day of: Yang arrived on site on time and started working right away. When you hire Yang you don't need to worry about anything, he knows what he is doing and you can just enjoy your day. That is what I was doing, I trusted him 100% and I am very happy I did.

The result: The wedding gallery was ready in 3!! weeks after the wedding, my husband and I were pleasantly surprised because we were expecting them in a month. Fist teaser was ready almost the next day after the wedding we were so surprised and so happy to see some of our beautiful wedding pictures so soon. Wedding pictures turned out STUNNING! I can't even count how many of them are my the most favorites!
The section of the photo gallery that I absolutely love is the first dance, dancing, and grand exit. I want to highlight that Yang did some black-and-white versions of our pictures and they are THE BEST!

Amazing photographer!

TLDR: Book Yang if you want photos you can look back on in 10 years and feel the emotions and like you're reliving the whole experience again.

Yang was the first vendor we booked probably 2 years in advance once we decided on a wedding date. Throughout the whole process he was professional, friendly, and communicative. My husband and I fell in love with his photos and the way they told a story. We love the beautiful Instagram posed photos (which Yang took), but it was more important we also had a photographer who could capture the candid moments and the details that would help us relive the whole day. Our wedding day was longgg, meaning we had two tea ceremonies, a western ceremony, and a dinner reception all at different locations. Somehow Yang powered through it all, was energetic, and made the whole process so much fun. It was especially heartwarming that he captured the moments at my house before the tea ceremony when my mom was setting up, and the subtle details like the calendar on the wall. These details may seem insignificant to some, but it really meant a lot to me. While we had some down time, Yang never stopped working and suggested we take some portraits and also details of our wedding rings, shoes, etc. Not to mention, he gave us sneak peaks within a week and delivered the whole gallery within two weeks of our wedding. I highly recommend Yang to anyone looking for pictures that really speak 1000 words.

Perfect photos of our perfect day!

Yang captured our wedding day 8.20.23 so perfectly!
Not only that but he made the time leading up to our wedding day easy as well. He was flexible with his photography packages to fit our needs, he was very responsive to any questions we had, and his obvious passion and knowledge about photographing weddings really put our minds at ease.
On the day of, Yang and his second shooter Benji were early and suggested we arrive early too in order to get the shots we wanted in. Yang was professional, but also so fun to hang out with while we took photos. He was everything everywhere all at once, but did so gracefully and in a way that wasn鈥檛 disruptive or distracting to us or our guests.
Our photos were ready way faster than we expected and every one of them is shot and edited so tastefully and beautifully. Deciding which ones to post and print is going to be so hard because we love all of them!
We can鈥檛 thank Yang and Benji enough for capturing our perfect day and 100% recommend @yangluphotography to anyone who鈥檚 in the market for a photographer!
