  • I love Stephen's work so much I asked him to drive to Arizona for my wedding weekend. He did so gladly, and was such a welcome addition to our rehearsal dinner and our wedding. I was so happy to work with Stephen because I was very tired of the light-airy-nothing wedding photo styles I kept seeing. And shot wrong, wedding can look very cheesy. Stephen is the antithesis of this! Stephen's photos are vivid, have personality, seriously capture the moment, and are unforgettable and a little bit artsy. He has an incredible talent for catching emotion. Honestly, I can't sing his praises enough. I am so, so happy with how all of our photos turned out.

    Thank you for the high praise, Alexa. You were a great bride to work with and I'm so happy to have been a part of your vision! I appreciate you noticing the qualities of my work that set me apart from other photographers. I bring in my experiences and inspiration from cinematography and photojournalism to make my images. Time really flies - I can't believe it's already been a year since that trip I made to Arizona!

  • We found Stephen by a friend recommendation, and he still exceeded our expectation though we were amazed by some of his example works already. The shooting days with Stephen were pleasant and he waved out our nervousness by pre-communication with us and always smiling and being gentle during the work. Stephen tried to understand who we are and what we love before the real work, and this turned into a lovely touch in each of his photos. We look great in his photos, and we look as we. I highly recommend Stephen if you are considering a wedding or portrait shooting in LA. Thank you Stephen!

  • 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!

  • 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. 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!

    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 :)

  • 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. 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!

    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 was such an amazing photographer! He really captured every moment and guided us through the process. He made us feel comfortable throughout the day and captured the feel of the wedding while getting some amazing shots! He did a great job of balancing our direction with his own expertise. It was such a great day, and we have amazing photos to prove it! We'd highly recommend Stephen.

  • I've hired Stephen Tang for a number of events. I like the way he works. He's very thorough. Very responsive. He outlines the deliverables and is clear about the expectations you should have for your event. He's certainly dependable and reliable about timing, which is very important to me in a vendor. He's checks off all the logistical boxes on the business side of the experience that are super important to me. On the creative side, Stephen's an artist, so his photography is just incredible. He loves what he does, and that translates throughout his photography work. He's the type of photographer who can create an unforgettable shot, even when he's not dealing with the ideal light or space. I think his personality is one of the huge selling points for me. He's calm and polite. People feel very comfortable talking to him, and having their picture taken. It's a very natural process for him photograph people. You want someone who you can count on and trust to deal with your guests during ... Read more

  • Easy to get along with which is key in a photographer. Stephen had shot me and my fiancée's engagement photos and he was fun and easy to work with. The pictures were edited and viewable on an online album within a week! I recommend him for your photography needs.

  • Stephen was a pro from the very first minute. His portfolio stood out amongst the other photographers we were considering, for its superior composition, color palette, and warmth. We're so happy we were able to book him. He was early to the wedding, very prepared, and very affable with all of our guests. He was able to capture the moments we wanted to preserve, and went out of his way to accommodate our requests. He even took a walk with us to take some spontaneous twilight shots, just as the waiter set his dinner in front of him. I'm sure it got cold while we went out shooting, but no complaints from Stephen at all. He truly was there to help us enjoy our day to the fullest, and to give us the best experience possible. The finished photos, after post-proccesing, were exactly what we wanted. Couldn't be happier with Stephen.

  • From the moment I spoke to Stephen on the phone to discuss the timeline, I knew my husband and I were going to hit it off with him. On our wedding day, Stephen was attentive, enthusiastic, creative, professional, and exuded the right amount of calm during the most stressful parts. He made us feel relaxed and comfortable about taking so many pictures together, something my husband and I are definitely not used to. It was important to us (mainly me, the bride) that Stephen captured certain shots; however, when Stephen truly shined was when we let him do his job and let him capture the moments of our day. As we went through our pictures, Stephen's talent for capturing genuine moments was evident; we couldn't help reliving all of the emotions of our most unforgettable day. The quality of the pictures, the framing, and the editing work was top-notch. The coloring of the photographs is absolutely beautiful. Many of my favorite shots look like were ripped out of a fashion magazine! I'm so gra... Read more

  • Stephen is a very talented and experienced photographer. I was amazed when I found his website and portfolio, especially by *his style, *the creative usage of lens, depth of field and focus, *framing, *colors and, the most important, *understanding the lighting in photography. Normally, I work in the wedding industry myself and I understand it really well. While being bride myself, I wanted to hire a really talented professional with the right set of skills and style. After learning that my favorite female photographer (who charges $$$$) was booked a year before for our wedding date, I had to find an equal quality with $$ budget that was left (you all know how budget doubles and triples while preparing for the wedding.. ) Stephen was my "Savior" in this regard. On a very friendly budget he delivered the best photos! I also want to add note for other brides: the truth is young male photographers work best during exhaustingly long weddings.. Female or older male photographers would ... Read more

    Thank you, Nadia! I never thought about that before - I just try to always do the best job I can, no matter how long the day is! Also, it is a great honor to be selected by another photographer. I know how critical we can be when it comes to our own craft!

  • Stephen is fantastic! Stephen is ultra-friendly, super-responsive to e-mails and texts, and has a very artsy, candid, laid-back style of photography that made working with him so pleasant and stress-free, which is so important when there's so much to consider when planning your perfect, dream wedding. Stephen took our engagement photos in NYC (Grand Central Terminal), and wedding photos in Philadelphia (Down Town Club). He was so incredibly patient and responsive through the drafting of the wedding album. He worked carefully and closely with me through three drafts, with major changes in layouts and photos, to produce a ridiculously gorgeous album that perfectly captured the joy and memories of our wedding day. Stephen is amazing and I'd enthusiastically recommend him to anyone!

    Thank you kindly for the opportunity to photograph your wedding, Jennifer. There were a lot of miles traveled and many hours spent working on the album, but it was a very memorable adventure!

  • Stephen worked with us doing a 2 hour couples portrait session. He is extremely responsive and clear via email. Stephen is flexible and really works with you to plan a session that works for everyone. On the day of, he showed up on time and had clearly thought about where he wanted to shoot around the location. Stephen is very helpful at suggesting poses and ideas for shots. He is friendly, professional and personable without being overly intrusive or overbearing. We're very pleased with the final photos and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable photographer and awesome photos.
