We couldn't thank Allen enough. We were referred to Allen by another friend of ours who is also a photographer. She loved his work and sent me his site and was very convincing on all the reasons we should pick Allen for our big day.
We met him at his office and he showed us his portfolios of past weddings. My then fiancé wasn't sure at first cause of the price but after a few minutes of glancing at the album and talking to Allen, we were sold!!! I knew going into a wedding that I wanted my pictures to come out perfect and nothing but the best! Didn't care how much it cost as long as they told the story for my day!
Our engagement session couldn't be more fun! My fiancé is not a picture person but Allen got him to pose, smile, and we got many amazing shots! As for wedding photos, I'm sure they are going to be just as amazing... our sneak peeks were awesome!
Allen's personality, professionalism, and friendliness are things that every bride should consider when picking their photographer! The days leading up to the wedding, I was nervous because I didn't want to miss any special moments, and the day of... I didn't have any worries... he captured everything that I could imagined and more! I can't wait to look at our photos :-) THANK YOU for making my day AMAZING!!!

My husband and I used Allen's videography company, Verbena Films, as our videographer. We are so glad we did! We weren't sure about getting a videographer but we decided to go for it. When Allen delivered our wedding video on Christmas day, my husband and I watched together and laughed and cried all over again. It was amazing. Allen got great shots and wonderful moments, and he was a joy to work with. He really worked so hard to make sure he got everything he needed to put together an awesome film at the end of it. We can't recommend him enough!

Allen did an amazing job throughout the whole process of Bridals and the Wedding day. He's super creative, took a ton of iconic photos and we joke that there are too many good ones to choose from. Allen did a perfect job in capturing our day. Highly recommended!!!

Allen was the perfect photographer for our event - he listened to what we wanted and knew how to make the most of the day. We had a very small wedding in a private home, which is a challenge to shoot, but Allen got wonderful shots. We couldn't be happier.

We could not be happier with our service from Allen! He did our engagement pictures, my bridal pictures, and of course our wedding! He was always in contact with me about scheduling, and always on time for our sessions. He had great ideas for locations to shoot and was very connected with venues and other vendors. Allen was a blast to work with! He was involved in everything from the planning to the partying :) and he made everyone involved comfortable and relaxed (half the time I forgot he was even there!) so we got awesome candid pictures!

I would recommend Allen for any photo sessions, anniversaries, parties, or weddings! We will definitely be hiring him in the future.

From day one, Allen met and exceeded our expectations. He met with us to make us feel comfortable with his services and a sense of trust was built during that meeting. Allen is very personable and great with people. He actually made our wedding day with all of his ideas and interactions with us and our kids. The night of our wedding we had a sense of the pictures we were going to end up with. He provided us with enough pictures to share with our family to make them a part of our intimate wedding. Everyone loved the pictures and we were all very excited to receive the rest of the pictures he took of our wedding. We would love to use him for more of our family events and milestones. I think we have made a great friend:)

Allen Tsai is one of the most professional and creative photographers that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. From the first time we spoke on the phone I felt an immediate connection with Allen and knew that he was the perfect fit for us. He was with us through the entire planning process and was able to gracefully go with the flow on our wedding day. We are still getting compliments, over 2 months later, on how wonderful of a job he did. I believe that pictures are one of the most sacred memories of a wedding and I could not imagine working with anyone else. Allen promised us perfection and he definitely delivered. I would gladly put my name behind Allen's work and confidently refer any bride to him.

Allen is so awesome. He is very nice, flexible, patient, and with a great sense in photography. You can totally tell that he is so passionate to photography.
I do consider it important to find a photographer who is easy to work with, besides a great skill and talent. Allen is exactly what I was looking for.
We were very happy with our pictures, they were very natural and full of our characteristics.
I would definitely highly recommend Allen to anyone! Don't miss him!!

Allen Tsai never ceases to amaze me. I've seen his photography portfolio years before I actually had the opportunity to work with him and always enjoyed his photos-- I FINALLY had a chance to personally book him for a large Awards Gala event that I hosted this past December 2012 as well as a Conference in September 2013-- he was actually my first choice pick! Allen is a professional, and has a gift of capturing the memories that you want to preserve for a lifetime. I really appreciate the photo previews that he sends over to us (which is within a couple of HOURS of the event ending!) and love the ease of accessing the full photos from Allen's online album. I recommend Allen Tsai for any of my friends' events or wedding needs, and cannot WAIT for the day to use him as my own wedding photographer. Allen is spectacular to work with and is a professional at what he does. He just launched Verbana Films for videography and I hope to get to personally work with him for a video project soon!

I highly recommend Allen Tsai Photography for all of your photography needs for any occasion, big or small!

I cannot begin to describe how amazing Allen is!! From the beginning he was very informative of packages and his photography techniques. He is very quick to reply to any messages and phone calls and always had a wonderful attitude and smile on his face!

When we did our bridals we were in and out in no time and the pictures turned out amazingly! Allen did things i never would have thought of and he far exceeded my expectations! He made me very comfortable and you can tell he truly loves what he does!

On the wedding day Allen met us at our venue and was so amazing! He seemed to be everywhere at once and caught every moment that i wanted! I didnt have to tell him to do anything and he took such a stress off my shoulders! He and the second photographer were so diligant in their work and they made the whole night that much better!

I would 100% recommed Allen! His photos turn out amazingly and i had them back so quickly after the wedding! They were edited beautifully and i couldnt have asked for a better photographer!

I'm not even sure how to begin writing about what an amazing job Allen did for us. Allen was our photographer for engagement, bridal and wedding day photography. He is a creative genius and is a master at lighting technique. He has such an eye for little details and the quality of the photographs was stunning. He can make posed pictures look great, as well as managing to capture candid moments that will be cherished forever. He is also amazing at "the landscape shot"- some of the wider lens creative shots of the views around us were amazing. Allen has the ability to shoot traditional or more artsy, depending on your preference. We chose a mix and were not disappointed.

The personal interaction was more than I expected. From the first time I met him, I felt comfortable with Allen, which was especially important to me because I get very anxious when someone is taking my picture. Allen put me at ease, and I felt like I had known him for years. Since we did 3 sessions with him, Allen really became an important part of our journey and the story of us. I couldn't have imagined going through the process with any other photographer. His follow-up with us post-wedding was above and beyond- always keeping us informed and willing to meet us anywhere to pick up canvases, etc. I consider Allen to be a friend at this point and would highly recommend him to anyone.

I would highly recommend Allen to any individual seeking a photographer...from our first conversation he was truly engaged in our wants and needs as our wedding photographer...he went above and beyond as our wedding was a destination wedding. His work is creative and stunning. I have received many compliments on my wedding photographs and I have Allen to thank for a lifetime of memories and keepsakes!

Allen was great some start to finish. He's a very personable guy. He's relatively inexpensive, but still of great quality. He is flexible and goes out of his way to meet you.
