5 stars, more if I could!!! Khoa & team: friendly, approachable, professional. His images are clear, precise, bright & vivid.
Before: We first inquired but couldn't meet in person, Khoa was flexible for phone call, along with Hendrick. As bride, you want to "know" your wedding team. We had connection right away, which continued through even after months after. He patiently listened to our wedding vision, gave helpful advice, and relayed all this information to the team.
During: Punctual - Hendrick and team were all friendly and cordial, never intimidating. I was frazzled with H/MU, breakfast, first look, and overall mood/anxiety -- but once Hendrick was there, I immediately felt at ease. He coached me to pose like this/like that. Time to head to park for outdoor photos -- Hendrick drove groom & GM to get started, so the girls could have limo to ourselves and meet them at the park. What smart thinking!
Arrival to venue: We needed someone who spoke Cantonese, and Hendrick's was perfect, not afraid to shout instructions in Chinese at our guests, at our request! Night flew by, and the whole team stayed way past the contracted time. It is important to note here that Khoa stopped by too, despite late at night, and booked elsewhere -- what kind of photog/team leader does that? THIS GUY! Dedication, passion, and commitment sums it up.
Post-wedding: Khoa delivered ALL photos in less than 3 weeks. Photos were crisp, brilliant, sharp. Between Hendrick and the other shooters, they captured things like cocktail hour, that we did not get to see, so very thankful for that. Then, I decided to order two parents' albums; Khoa tirelessly helped arrange photos into beautiful leather albums.
TL;DR: Please see for yourself and send an inquiry to 1314 & Khoa -- if they are available for your date, do not hesitate, BOOK THEM because you will have the best friendly team who will produce the most amazing photos for your wedding day!
Khoa was absolutely fantastic, so happy we went with him. He went above and beyond our expectations with his time and effort. He had so many creative ideas and really hustled to get a ton of different pictures in throughout the wedding. Would recommend him in a heartbeat!
Khoa and his team were great! They have a great website and it showcases their style beautifully. Khoa is very responsive via email, which is crucial when you’re planning a wedding. Our first meeting was at a Starbucks and he brought a laptop to showcase additional weddings that were photographed by 1314 and himself. We worked together on a timeline of the day and he put me at ease as my husband and I are not great in front of the camera. Our edited photos were provided to us timely and were fantastic! Everything was captured and then some! My only recommendation to future couples is to do an engagement shoot. We didn’t as we felt shy in front of the camera, but put that aside! It gives you an opportunity to know your photographer’s style and see how you act and look in front of the camera. And when you know what your assets are, your pictures will be that much better.
Khoa and Brian, thank you for capturing our beautiful day and working with us to get those fantastic shots!
Khoa was absolutely amazing! My bridesmaids and I are rather "awkward" posers when it comes to taking pictures but Khoa was very knowledgeable, helped guide us to the perfect poses, and really made our experience great! Our wedding photos came out great and we received many compliments from our friends and family. Definitely recommend 1314 Studio!
Khoa really helped us out on our wedding day. I haven't been to a lot of weddings and so didn't really know what was good in terms of wedding photography. But I now know that 1314studio is good. They were responsive, courteous, sweet, and professional. In the midst of all the craziness of the wedding, photography was the least of our worries-- Khoa really knew exactly what to do every moment of the wedding. Our photos turned out great, and I can't wait to hang them in our house :) Worth every penny.
Khoa and his team were absolutely amazing, I would highly recommend him as a photographer, will definitely be using him in the future!
Khoa did such a great job for us. I’ve heard from other couples that sometimes pictures can be tedious, however he was efficient, clearly had a great eye for nice moments, and you put the icing on the cake with a special viewing at our wedding. Thanks Khoa!
I don't know where to begin to describe Khoa? To say that he is simply amazing is an understatement. He and Alex were beyond flexible and accommodating. Making our three hours session so much fun. It is obvious that they have real passion for photography. Thank you for making our memory so beautiful. I cant wait to do more shots with you in the future. Highly recommend this amazing team!! Simply the best New York has to offer!
Khoa takes our family yearly photos and I love every single of them. Khoa is very responsive, professional and flexible. His photos are getting better and better each year and you would not go wrong if you go to Khoa
Khoa did an amazing job photographing our special day. My husband and I are definitely not used to taking pictures, but Khoa made us feel so comfortable, and it was really fun! We absolutely loved how the pictures came out. We will definitely hire 1314 Studio for all future special events. Thank you so much!!
My husband and I used 1314 Studio for our wedding and it was the best decision we made! Khoa was so easy to work with, responded to all questions and made us feel so comfortable while taking the photos. There was a change of plans the day of our wedding with our limo causing us to take photos at a different location than we originally planned. Khoa was amazing and took the most beautiful pictures! I cannot stop looking through them and obsessing over each one! The pricing is reasonable and you get the rights to all of your pictures. Can’t ask for anything more than that! If you are looking for a photographer, look no further! We will be using 1314 Studio for all future events.
I used Khoa for some candid proposal/engagement shots and we were super impressed. So much so, that I also used Khoa for our wedding and once again, he went above and beyond. Very easy to communicate with, great attention to detail and the outcome of the photos was great, thanks for everything Khoa and team!
Our wedding wouldn't have been the same if Khoa and his team weren't apart of our big day! 1314 Studio was professional, fun, pleasant and talented! Our pictures are out of this world, more beautiful then we could have dreamed of! He's our guy for every major event :)
We had a wonderful time working with Khoa and the 1314 Studio team. They were so friendly and easy to work with and even after the wedding! I am amazed by how much they managed to capture of the day and how wonderful the photos are. Thanks guys, you really did a fantastic job! Dawn and Vince
My husband and I used Khoa for our engagement and wedding photos. We were very pleased and how shocked on how pretty and nice our pictures came out. We both are not photogenic and we were very nervous on our 1st time shoot with Khoa. He knew exactly what he was doing and made sure that we posed our best. We had the shoot in November so it was very cold but it went by so fast. Khoa makes you feel comfortable and is very laid back and a funny guy.
On our wedding day it was so hectic but we got really nice shots. Our photos are different from the ordinary or should i say traditional poses. I like how Khoa incorporated new ideas and poses. I definately recommend him for wedding and engagement photos.... or for any other occasions.
This review is long overdue and well deserved! My husband and I got married in October 2016, and our photographers for the big day were Khoa Nguyen and Hendrick Moy. From the get go, these guys were so accommodating and considerate! The team over at 1314 studios always answered my emails in a timely manner, and my photographers were always super responsive as well. Khoa touched base with me several times before the big day, and each time, he actually listened to what I had to say. When I requested to meet with Hendrick, even though we live in different states, he made it possible to speak in person, which was important for me and my husband because we wanted to make sure we were comfortable around our photographers. On the day of wedding, both Khoa and Hendrick respected the fact that we wanted to try to stay on track with our schedule… but we all know that never happens with weddings! As crazy as the day got, Khoa & Hendrick made shooting with them super fun and never awkward. Also, we had incorporated some cultural traditions that they were so respectful about, and of which they captured so nicely. They’re such genuine, talented people, and I was so happy to have them photographing our wedding. The quality of their work is top notch, and their prices are extremely reasonable. Book them now! You won’t regret it!
I had very particular photography ideas for Khoa, and he catered my wedding day photography to exactly what I requested!
1314 has done engagement shoots and weddings for several close friends of mine over the past 6 years. Working with Khoa & Emily throughout the years has always been a pleasure and I have always been incredibly impressed by their work (and their work ethic). They're everything you could want in your photographers: responsive, professional, fun, and really, really good at what they do.
So when my fiancé & I got engaged, it was an obvious choice: 1314 was the studio for us! We recently had our engagement shoot with Khoa and it was simply a dream come true. He made us feel completely at ease (not an easy task!) and the photos ideas that he came up with throughout the shoot were phenomenal. He went above and beyond, doing whatever it took to create the very best images possible and they are stunning. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.
UPDATE: We just got married & if we could give 1314 more stars, we would! Khoa absolutely amazed us & brought a fantastic second shooter as well. They edited photos from the ceremony to show at the reception & our guests could not stop raving about how incredible the photographs (and photographers) were. Not only was the photography aspect amazing, but Khoa's calm, friendly & playful demeanor helped us feel so relaxed & comfortable throughout the entire day. We cannot recommend 1314 studio highly enough- they are hands down the best photographers we could've ever hoped for!
We recently worked with Khoa for our engagement photos. He was very personable, friendly and easy to work with. He went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and collaborated with us throughout the process. We were thrilled with how the pictures came out and look forward to working with him again at our wedding!
After much searching my fiancé and I chose 1314 Studio to do our engagement shoot a few weeks back. Although where we chose to do our pictures was crowded Khoa made us feel like it was just us two. He scoped out the location beforehand and knew exactly where he would have us pose. About a week later we received our pictures. Now our only problem is picking which pictures we like the best!
My husband and I have used 1314 Studio for both our wedding photography and recently our maternity photo shoot. We have worked with both Emily and Khoa and think both are very talented and professional photographers. This review is mainly for the maternity photo shoot because it is the most recent, but before I get started I must say our wedding photos came out so good, that we knew right away who to call for the maternity shoot. Khoa was our photographer and he was very easygoing with our location requests, had a lot of flexibility with dates and times and had quick and clear communication via email/phone. We had to reschedule our shoot's original date due to bad weather, but the second time was perfect! From the moment we met, my husband and I both felt very comfortable with Khoa. He is very friendly and made us laugh right away which helped us relax so that all of our photos came out looking very natural. I was very impressed not only with the quality of the photos, but also with his eye for the right light, angles, and creative poses. We met at one location and he was able to make it look as if we went to 3 or 4 different sites- I can tell he prepared for this before we got there! I would definitely recommend 1314 Studio to anyone looking to get very natural yet creative looking photos. All of our friends and family complimented us on the results, but besides that I would say my favorite thing about going with them is how fun the experience itself is!
Khoa and 1314 Studio were so fun and easy to work with! Flexible and creative, they made our special day a great experience and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. The turn around to get our photos was very short and we were more than happy with the results! We would definitely recommend 1314 Studio, especially with the prices Khoa offers.
Khoa is the best photographer who we have ever met. We chose him as the photographer for our engagement photo-shooting session at Central Park at New York. He really did an excellent job: He is very professional and at the same time very enthusiastic. He knows how to make us emotionally engaged to the photo-shooting. We had so much fun during the whole session. We are very happy having him as our photographer. We love so much all photos that he delivered to us, so do our friends and family. We highly recommend Khoa for any of you who are looking for a romantic engagement photo-shooting session at New York. Best wishes for all, Danni & Seb
I used 1314 Studio's for my proposal to my girlfriend (now fiancee). Khoa was an incredible photographer. The pictures came out better than we could have imagined. We were so happy with the quality time that Khoa took with us and for capturing the "moment" when it happened! Thank you for your help! We will definitely be using you for the wedding!
Khoa and the entire team of photographers of 1314 Studios are phenomenal! My wife is Indian and we had a traditional Hindu-Indian ceremony, which can be quite lengthy and start very early. Khoa and his team were very understanding and professional-they arrived early and they knew the significance of the various Hindu customs that occurred during the ceremony and did a wonderful job of capturing the entire wedding and reception. We were so happy because he also made sure to capture all of our loved ones, family, and friends in all the photos, which is very heart warming as many live abroad.
Khoa also personally hand delivered our final album to our home- he is truly a pleasure to work with! Our friends and family were so impressed with the final photos as the album was so colorful and of beautiful quality. My wife also loved the glamor shots that Khoa captured of her-she truly felt like a beautiful bride, like something out of a high fashion magazine.
We highly recommend Khoa to everyone and we would love to use him again for any events we will have in the future! Great job, you are very talented!
