MICHAEL A WONG WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER

Photographing weddings since 1980, Michael  A Wong has focused not only on composition and fine technical aspects of the images he captures, he has also felt strongly that his job is to translate the emotions and love expressed during a wedding into spectacular color images, ones  that will be treasured for a lifetime.


With  his spiritual and intuitive instincts, along with mastery of his Canon SLR, Michael draws inspiration from the essence of his subjects,  working with hundreds of wedding clients over the years.  Throughout his career, Michael's  style has evolved and flourished. His photography style ranges from classic to photo-journalistic.


He  strongly emphasizes family combinations, wedding party and wedding  couple portraits.  Michael is an excellent director / orchestrator, who  truly enjoys shooting weddings, and is very comfortable with large  groups and small intimate gatherings.


Michael  finds great joy in nature and outdoor settings, and therein lies the  magic media for his exquisite images: LIGHT.  As he always says: ”You  can't beat nature's beauty." However, he is just as creative with  interior locations - in a church, or other architectural scenes. 

TESTIMONIALS

 Michael,  

Myself and Joseph wanted to thank you (and your wife) for the  wonderful photos! Amazing! We really appreciate your work ( as well as  getting them to us so quickly!) and your patience with me ;) we now how  wonderful memories to last a lifetime. Thank you! 

Sincerely, The Taylors  :) I hadn't saved the many kind notes of appreciation for my work  through the years, so I'm starting now, as it might be a good idea for  this website, often being asked for references. More will be added, as  time goes on. 


Hi  Michael, Thank you very much for being a part of our special day at  Hastings House and taking photos of us and our family and friends. I had  already assigned a friend to follow you around with an umbrella to keep  your equipment dry in case of rain but thankfully we were fortunate  enough to not have to worry about that. We truly appreciate everything  you,Terry, Linda, Richard did for us on our wedding day.

Sincerely,
Cindee and Jared Barnes 


Dear Michael Wong, 

Martin  and I wish to thank you sincerely for the outstanding job you've done,  your generosity & your professionalism. Our families and friends had  nothing but praise for your work. These precious moments of our lives,  captured through your lense, will be cherished for many years to come.  Thank you for taking part in the celebration of our marriage. Please  accept our compliments. We are enclosing a CD as a souvenir. We hope  you'll enjoy it. Just as photos can serve as a walk through Memory Lane,  we hope that the music we've selected will do the same. Many  Blessings, 

Sincerely, Minh-Chan & Martin.

Hi Mike,
I just wanted to reach out and say thank you so so much for the gorgeous  photos from our Half Moon Bay Wedding you took last Friday.. they are  utterly amazing. So elegant, sophisticated, modern, and fun. You truly  depicted the love we felt that day. Our wedding day is described as  "absolute perfection" between me and my new husband. We can't say it  enough!

Also,  the 4-day turnaround and hand-delivery to our home mailbox was the  "cherry on top" to making sure we received our beautiful photos. By  including ALL of our pictures, instead of the stated 72 digital photos  we were promised in our agreement, you truly went above and beyond when  it comes to true customer service and great business.

Again, thank you so much and we really appreciate all that you did for our special day! We are so glad you were the one  

to take our photos. We will definitely recommend you for our friends and family!! :)
 

Kind Regards,
Danielle and Kevin Campbell

Dear Mike,

The  photos arrived yesterday and we're just LOVING them!  We've shared them  with my parents and with Katie and Joe, who are probably right now  sharing them with Joe's parents and grandparents in Tahoe. You did a  spectacular job! Everyone is just amazed with the way you managed to  move all over the place to capture such great shots. You put everyone at  ease, proven by all the smiles and natural emotions.It was a joy to  have you there sharing such a personal event without families. Thank you  so much for all you did to make the wedding and reception truly  special.

With Gratitude,

A McKeever
