Wedding

San Diego

My husband and I searched high and low for a wedding photographer, starting locally and unable to find someone who had photos that touched us. We ended up expanding our search to northern California and found Duy. From our initial meeting with Duy we knew he was exactly what we had been searching for! Duy is incredibly easy to work with and knows how to capture moments unlike anyone else.

If we could give more than 5 stars we would because the product that he delivers is beyond what we could have hoped.

We can’t recommend him enough!!! All of our friends and family are in awe of our wedding photos. Thank you for capturing all of our special moments during our wedding day!!!

After my husband and I met Duy we instantly knew we wanted him at our wedding.
Throughout the wedding planning process Duy was prompt to respond to emails and checked in as the wedding got closer. On the day of the wedding Duy and his team were on time, friendly to work with and easily blended into the crowd.

We have been blown away with amazing engagement photos topped off by even more amazing wedding photos!

He did a great job capturing my husband and I in portraits and also moments at the wedding that bring me back to that moment in time. He definitely has an eye for photography.

Wow, Duy was just incredible, and hiring him as our photographer was the perfect decision! I knew from the instant he messaged me back promptly and so professionally that he would be an awesome vendor to work with. He was so catering, responsive, and so easy to get along with. He has a calm and composed demeanor that is great on your wedding day (good to relax so many nerves going on that day!) and we received many compliments saying that he was quite discreet and undisruptive in his shooting style! I also loved that he touches base frequently and just checks in, and before our wedding day went over some details that I definitely would not have realized on my own, and which proved to be crucially helpful for our wedding day logistics.

I personally love candid photos and that is one of Duy’s many specialties.

He is also amazingly talented at shooting landscape photos, and has a great eye for lighting and a great eye in general for shots that you wouldn’t even think of! (but turn out so beautiful!) Literally EVERYONE who saw our photos has complimented our photographer, is just in awe of our pictures, and that they look like straight out of a movie. This is exactly the style that I wanted, and on top of that Duy is so fantastic to work with! Thank you Duy!

Wedding

San Jose, California

Working with Duy was a delight to say the least. From the first time we met him, we knew he would be our wedding photographer. He was professional, informative and always responsive during the entire process.

We were fortunate enough to have Duy shoot our engagement and wedding photos – both were top notch and exceeded our expectations in every way.

During our big day, he kept us on time and made sure we got all the right shots. He was very PROFESSIONAL and worked extremely well with all our vendors. The day after our wedding he sent us a few teaser photos and a few days thereafter we received another 15 photos – what a pleasant surprise! We loved every photo and could not be happier with our decision to use him. Even the presentation of the USB drive with all the wedding photos was above and beyond our expectations. I would HIGHLY recommend using Duy for your wedding if you want beautiful photos filled with emotion.

Wedding

San Francisco, California

I was searching for months to find our wedding photographer. I knew exactly what I wanted and was just having a hard time finding the right person to capture it. We met with Duy first so that I can get sense of who he is, how he likes to work and whether our personalities were going to jive because I knew it was going to be an emotional day. Well after being at his place for half an hour and seeing all of his work, I was sold.

He had a great way of framing pictures that makes everything look magnificent.

It was spectacular. And I couldn’t had have asked for a better photographer.

Kavitha & Michael

Wedding

Pleasanton, California

Choosing Duy as our photographer was the best decision we made for our wedding. He is an incredible photographer, and he did an amazing job of capturing the details and raw emotions of our wedding. We had a traditional Hindu wedding, which has very subtle rituals and symbolism (all explained in Sanskrit) which can be very difficult to follow, let alone capture in photography.

Duy did an amazing job of documenting every step of our Indian wedding, from the baraat (groom’s procession) to the reception.

His photography style is candid, which we wanted, yet he was very patient in taking all the formal family photos our parents requested. Our family has relived our wedding day many, many times by looking through his photos, and we still get compliments on how well the photographs turned out. Couldn’t have asked for a better photographer!

Karen & Noah

Wedding

San Francisco, California

Without Duy’s photographic talent, I wouldn’t have the visually stunning proof that I was having the best day of my life! If you are a DIY bride like I was, be assured that Duy will be able to capture your vision and make all your hard work look impeccable through his lens.

I was very impressed with the candid, natural, and endearing moments he was able to catch.

The day really does pass by very quickly, and I’m so grateful to Duy for capturing these very special moments while I was having the Best. Day. Ever.

Neha & Ryan

Wedding

Napa, California

Duy did an excellent job capturing all the special memories from our wedding!! I would highly recommend him!!

He has a way of staying behind the scenes and capturing special moments with you even knowing that he is there.

He did a great job selecting key places for us to take our wedding party and first look pictures. He allows you to feel comfortable in front of the camera so he can capture each special moment. We also ordered our wedding albums through him and he helped me pick through the many pictures because I liked them all and I loved the final product!

Jenny & Lex

Wedding

Saratoga, California

We looked around a bit for wedding photographers, as one does, and Duy was by far the inevitable choice. His photos were the only ones that made you feel like you were in the moment emotionally, even for wedding photos of complete strangers. And, our photos turned out just as good.

He captured the feelings of the day, and the beauty of the setting. He was unobtrusive, yet managed to be everywhere, and the results show.

All in all, I don’t think we could have asked for a single thing more. You can stop looking, you’ve found the best photographer out there.

Anna + Matt

Wedding

Healdsburg, California

My husband and I often said to each other that hiring Duy was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.

Duy is extremely talented (the pictures speak for themselves), professional, and so fun to work with!

I would also strongly suggest getting an engagement session as it was a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera and receive a second set of amazing photos with Duy’s incredible eye.We love the photos he gave us and also loved working with him as he is incredibly reliable and put me at ease. We really cannot recommend Duy highly enough!

Kristin & John

Wedding

San Francisco, California

Besides, oh you know, actually getting married, having Duy as our photographer was one of the best parts of our wedding experience for several reasons:

1) His work is phenomenal. He truly captures moments, emotion, and setting with incredible richness and attention to detail. His indoor and outdoor photography are equally beautiful, which shows a masterful command of lighting. We LOVE our engagement and wedding photos, and if you are able to hire Duy, I’m betting that you will absolutely love yours too.

2) His personality is perfect for what he does.

His calm demeanor will keep you relaxed during your wedding day but his laser focus on what he is doing reassures you that he will get amazing shots.

He gives direction when you need it (like during the creative and wedding party & family portrait shots) and blends in seamlessly among all your guests while stealthily capturing all the best moments of your special day (like during the ceremony and reception).

3) Duy delivers your photos in a timely manner and beautifully packaged. Love the wood USB drives, and the laser engraving of our names and wedding date on it was such a nice touch.

4) While the work and end product are key factors, the experience of working with a vendor is very important too. Duy was a dream to work with. He was always quick to reply to calls or emails and willing to accommodate or go the extra mile. He’s organized and will check in with you before you even have to ask. You will end up wishing all your vendors were as awesome as Duy.

Thuy & Kevin

Wedding

San Jose, California

Duy is simply amazing. His vision and artistic acumen is second to none. We chose him because he has a unique way of transforming a pedestrian setting into the most story-telling picturesque shot out there. This was particularly evident the day of our wedding at a country club.

What we loved about Duy was he veered away from the “cliche” shot to incorporate the surrounding light and environment in a way that no other photographer can.

Not only is Duy patient, but he is one of the easiest vendors to work with. He is responsive, caring and thoughtful in all his work. Definitely one of our best vendors and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others. Keep up the great work!

Molly & Jon

Wedding

Woodside, California

We were ready to sign another photographer the night before our friend told us about Duy. We took one look at his portfolio, booked a Skype session with him, and by the end of our conversation we had already made up our minds that he was the right fit for us. We chose Duy because we wanted photos that captured the emotions and moments of the event – not just typical wedding photos.

With Duy’s photos, you feel like you are right there in the moment and it brings it all back each time you look at them and they are also, simply, beautiful photographs.

His composition and eye are unparalleled. On the day of the event, Duy and his assistants kept things running smoothly but were also flies on the wall – I didn’t even notice them at all during the ceremony – and yet they captured everything. Cannot recommend Duy enough!!

Kristen & Doug

Wedding

Key West, Florida

I know Duy from his work in the bay area, and was excited when he agreed to travel to Key West to photograph our wedding. I was having a hard time finding photographers near Key West who were anywhere near as good as him.

He was incredibly professional and so comfortable and easy to work with. Those moments where it is just you and your partner right before or after the wedding are such a special, intimate time. He was so respectful and fun at these moments, with just the right amount of direction and letting us be ourselves.

I am so happy with how well our photos turned out!!!

I knew he was an amazing photographer, but I am so impressed at the way he captured the color, light, ambiance, and total happiness of the event! He captured all the moments that I remember and at the same time managed to get pictures of nearly every guest! I can’t gush enough about what an amazing job he did! I would (and have) highly recommend him to everyone.

Nicole & Alec

Wedding

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

We were so fortunate to have Duy come all the way to Pittsburgh to shoot our wedding this past October –

he did a remarkable job, truly capturing the energy and spirit of our celebration through images more vibrant, animated and unique than we could have ever expected!

Our friends and family cannot stop talking about the final results and we enthusiastically recommend him to any and all.

Duy has massive talent coupled with a calm, focused and cheerful demeanor that suit well with what could be the chaos and complexity of the wedding day. His attention to detail and unique, almost architectural, approach generate perspectives unique to the wedding photography genre that set him apart from many of his peers. Working with Duy is a very organic and natural process that lends a comfortable aura to what could otherwise be a stiff and unnatural process. His photographs obviously speak to his immense abilities and creativity, but even more importantly is that he is simply a pleasure to work with.

Thanks again Duy for such an amazing job!

Ayela & Mohamad

Wedding

San Francisco, California

We used Duy for both our Engagement session and December Wedding and are extremely happy with the quality of his work. Both our Engagement session and Wedding were two very different styles and settings. Everyday my husband and I seem to find another detail, moment, or photo that Duy perfectly captured.

He has an editorial style which makes each photo look like it belongs in a magazine.

Although we had extensively gone over details of particular shots I wanted, his intuition in finding a perfect moment was always spot on. Every photo is grand yet intimate.

Duy was extremely flexible and prompt among wedding planning mishaps and confusion. His calm, friendly energy makes him a pleasure to work with. He worked over time to ensure that he captured everything we wanted and his presentation/organization is amazing. I know there are several renowned Wedding photographers, but after seeing Duy’s photographs it is hard to find another photographer that can evoke the same emotion in their work.

Ahna & Alex

Wedding

Menlo Park, California

I can’t say enough with how happy I am that Duy Ho was my wedding photographer. From the moment we first met, he made me feel comfortable and I LOVED the weddings photos he did from previous weddings. I was immediately sold on his ability and I was so lucky that he was available (as he gets booked very far in advance).

One of the things that impressed me most with Duy’s photography is the variety of photos and moments he is able to capture.

He is very calming and my friends didn’t even realize we had a photographer throughout the events. He finds these very cool angles: making some of the pictures look like high fashion photo shoots but then also capture the serenity of the ceremony.

Mary-Elise & Russell

Wedding

Santa Rosa, California

Duy is everything you want in a photographer. He is professional as well as fun to work with. His photographs are absolute pieces of art. He has captured such special moments from my wedding in such unique ways, there are no words to adequately describe them.

Stunning, beautiful and so much more.

He works with you closely to get to know your style, finds such unique ways to display your personalities on film and, while working, does so in a way that half the time you do no even know he is there.

I highly, highly, highly recommend him!!!

Margie & Andy

Wedding

Pleasanton, California

I cannot say enough great things about Duy! My husband and I worked with him for our engagement and wedding day photography. He was always prompt, professional, and very quick to respond by email. In person, he is very relaxed, easy going, and fun. Not to mention patient with our huge family and tons of kids running around!

Our wedding pictures came out beautifully and he was able to capture all of the emotion from our wedding day.

The detailed shots and the lighting was amazing. The pictures are priceless and we can’t thank Duy enough for the amazing memories he captured.

Zia & Coley

Wedding

Woodside, California

We’ve been SO happy with Duy! When my fiancé and I first chose our venue, a uniquely rustic sculpture farm with some truly phenomenal scenery, we knew we needed to find a photographer who could make the most of the beautiful landscape and striking sculpture. Duy did exactly that, taking great shots that not only captured the personal meaning of our wedding day but are also flat out stunning photographs.

Duy has such a great eye for not only light but also space and form – he is a true artist.

Not to mention that he is an absolute pleasure – easy going and flexible, he understood our priorities and was sure to grab us at the right times to hit our favorite spots with the best light. If you want striking and unique photos that go beyond the traditional wedding shots Duy is your man!

Lindsay & Irving

Wedding

Pensacola, Florida

Duy is amazing, amazing, amazing. I cannot say enough good things about his photography and about working with him in general. First of all, he is extremely professional, answers all emails nearly instantaneously, and really helps to prepare you prior to the wedding in terms of organizing what types of shots you want, and takes time to get to know the personality of the bride and groom. His style is extremely artistic. For our wedding, he did all the standard family and group photos and tons of gorgeous artistic photos capturing memories from the whole night.

Duy was incredibly flexible, and he took every opportunity to catch meaningful moments, even spur of the moment.

Since the wedding, family and friends have been gushing over the photos, saying how they wish they could renew their vows just to have him be the photographer. Best choice ever for a wedding (or any event) photographer!!!

Pam & Andrew

Wedding

Sonoma, California

When choosing a photographer we were looking for someone that had a style – an art – something with soul. Duy’s photographs were the only ones that made us stop and say “wow”; we knew he was the right man for the job. We weren’t disappointed.

Duy is as skilled and professional as they come. My wife particularly appreciated his calm energy and, for lack of a better word, serenity throughout the day.

Duy was a presence when he needed to be, directing group photos with an assertive yet patient demeanor, which helped us greatly to keep things on schedule. At other times, we didn’t even notice he was there until we saw his incredible shots later. As my wife has said, he captured moments that we didn’t even realize happened. Duy is, in our opinion, one of the best, and has our highest recommendation. You won’t be disappointed.

Lusa & Fang

Wedding

El Cerrito, California

I was immediately drawn to his work and hiring Duy was one of the best decisions I made for the wedding.  I cried when he sent me my sneak peek because aside from the pictures being exactly what I was looking for, his photos told the story of my special day.  He seamlessly captured all the emotions I felt that day and looking at his photos just brought everything back to life for me.

He’s given me a timeless gift, and I’ll always be thankful for that.

I whole-heartedly recommend Duy if you’re looking for a responsible, creative, photographer who will help capture your story and give you memories to laugh and share about.  Oh, you’ll definitely get bragging rights too because your photos will be AWESOME!

Allison & Bridger

Wedding

Sonoma, California

We were so fortunate to have found Duy to photograph our wedding in Sonoma. When we stumbled across his work online, it was exactly the style that we had been looking for. We hired him without hesitation.

He kept a discreet profile throughout the day, but he was poised and ready to capture every moment. He was very flexible, and even agreed to go on a mini field trip when my bridesmaids kidnapped my groom. :)

Even before seeing any of the photos that he took at our wedding, we knew that he did a great job. And after seeing the end result, we were thrilled!

His use of light and eye for composition are incredible.

We’ve had endless compliments on his photos – anywhere from friends and family, to people we don’t even know! Duy’s work is unparalleled, and we could not recommend him highly enough.

Kathryn & David

Wedding

Pebble Beach, California

Duy is not only an exceptional photographer who is very talented but he makes you feel at ease.

He was so professional from the start to finish; from engagement photos to the wedding.

What I liked best about Duy is that he wants to get to know the couple and their love for one another. This way he can capture it best. Pair this element with an excellent eye for photography and your engagement/wedding photos will be amazing. Plus he knows how to capture the most special and fun moments!

Katie & Jim

Wedding

Healdsburg, California

Duy is everything I wanted and more for our wedding photographer. He’s got an eye for the artistic and has a keen sense for when and how to capture the most special, intimate and natural of emotions and moments throughout the day.

His photographs are timeless and not trendy, something that you will cherish for years to come.

The comments we’ve received on our photographs are outstanding. I couldn’t be happier. I interviewed several photographers and I knew that if I didn’t go with Duy, I would always have wondered what our photographs would have looked like. Throughout the entire process Duy was exceptionally professional, patient and understanding. His dedication to pleasing his customers is as obvious as his passion for photography and weddings. His turnaround time is remarkable and he remains responsive even when he’s got four weddings in a row. So happy to have worked with Duy. Hope that you choose him too!

Jenn & Martin

Wedding

San Francisco, California

Duy was amazing to work with! He responded quickly to all my questions and concerns leading up to my wedding day. He understood what I wanted out of my photos and I was so beyond happy with the end product. His photos really captured all the candid moments from my big day and he made my husband and I feel very comfortable during the shoots.

Thank you Duy for giving me the most amazing memories of my wedding!

Lynn & Thadd

Wedding

San Francisco, California

Duy is outstanding. He has a great eye and is a true professional. We talked with Duy almost a year in advance. He was very thorough with us. He took his time to go over what we envisioned for our wedding day: location, time, people, etc. We spent a full hour on the phone during our initial conversation. My husband and I are from Chicago, so planning was a bit of a challenge, but Duy helped plan detail by detail. He went over everything from the weather forecast for the day of, to the time of sunset for that day I had several questions for Duy and he was very responsive the entire time leading up to the wedding.

Duy is professional, dependable and consistent.

These things are key when planning. I have received a sample, teaser photo from our reception event and I am very pleased. The photo has lots of color and the image pops. It’s unreal, the photo is magical and I’ve never seen anything like it.

I am so glad I booked Duy!
