We booked Augie for our wedding more than a year in advance. We opted for the 6 hour package (incl. engagement session), as we had a small, daytime wedding with no bridal party.

1. He is expensive, but I think worth it for peace of mind that your pictures will be gorgeous. I worried that my pictures wouldn't be as lovely as those he posts on his blog, but I am really thrilled with them!

2. Don't opt out of the engagement shoot. We originally didn't want it (and were thinking of saving ~$500 by not doing it), but are so glad we did. Augie provided lots of tips and helped us get comfortable in front of the camera in a short 1 hour session. The experience really helped get is "picture-ready" on the big day much more quickly. Great practice!

3. JPGs of your engagement shoot come with the DVD with your wedding pictures, so if you were hoping to get the pictures early to share on Facebook, you'll have to settle with sharing the low-res "teasers" (Augie was able to send us some ~2000px res pictures, but I don't think this is encouraged!)

4. Low-res teasers came 24-48 hours after the engagement shoot and wedding, which is amazing! The timeline for the rest of the wedding photos and DVD is quite a bit longer (6 weeks and 90 days, respectively), though in both cases, Augie delivered far ahead of schedule (yay!)

5. The online host for pictures (at the 6 week mark) are posted on Pictage, which has a poor end-user experience. This interface is mainly provided to facilitate ordering high quality prints (at high prices, as well), and sharing online with friends and family. Friends and family must sign up for an account to view, and enlarged pictures are watermarked to prevent screen-capping (so you can't really get an unobstructed view of the pictures).

Augie is very flexible, professional, and prompt with communications. Invaluable when it comes to wedding planning! His assistants, V (Vi? Vee?) and Tom (who appeared to be in-training) were also very professional.

We hired Augie as our wedding photographer this past summer, and we couldn't have been happier with our selection. Augie was simply AMAZING. Since we were planning our wedding (which took place in the Bay Area) from DC, we were forced to meet with potential vendors during a few weekend trips out to SF. As soon as we met with Augie, we knew that he was the photog for us. In addition to having a top-notch portfolio, he just seemed like the perfect fit personality-wise. We knew that our photog was going to be someone that we would spend the entire day with at our wedding, and we wanted to make sure it was someone we were comfortable with.

Augie included an Engagement Session as part of our package, and we decided to fly him out to DC for it so that we'd have a set of pictures in the city we live in and met at. The E-session was a full day of shooting in Georgetown and the U Street Corridor. We could not believe it when Augie actually emailed us teaser photos later that night - talk about a fast turnaround. Clearly, he didn't need to spend days photoshopping his work - he's that good. We were so happy with the pictures and even had Augie produce a signature book using the photos that we had our guests sign at our wedding.

For the wedding itself, Augie and his team were perfect. He came to our hotel and took shots of my bridesmaids and me getting ready, as well as my husband and his groomsmen. Then he took our "first look" and Bridal Party shots at a nearby Japanese Tea Garden before heading over to the wedding venue. Once we got to the venue, we were able to get through most of the planned family shots before the actual ceremony - Augie and his team were so good at wrangling people up and getting the shots done efficiently. The rest of the day and evening were just as perfect as the start of the day. Augie was unobtrusive but still managed to get all of the shots that we wanted.

I HIGHLY recommend Augie. We actually just received our final photos a couple weeks ago, and are blown away by his work. We consider Augie a friend after working together with him, and have anointed him our photog for life.

One word to describe Augie... AMAZING. Brian and I are very fortunate to have Augie as our photographer. The first time we met with him (at his studio) we knew that he was the ONE. A lot of his work were displayed on the walls and it showcased his talent. We couldn't wait to take our engagement pictures. That day, he made us feel very comfortable, at ease especially since it was both our first time doing a photo shoot. We had a blast and we left asking for more. The big day finally arrived, Augie was there ready to snap away and we knew we were in good hands and we trusted him. All our friends and family loved him just from seeing our engagement pictures and that day, they all saw him in action. His style is fresh and candid and he has a great eye for detail. He was quick to hone in on these details and capture them to give a personal feel to the photographs. He was able to capture all the images that we can truly cherish for the rest of our lives. Words can't express how happy we are with our photos. Thank you!!!!

My husband and I were extremely fortunate to be able to work with Augie Chang on the photography for our wedding. Not only is he an amazing photographer, but he is also a wonderful person. I work in the photo book industry so before I even got engaged I had spent hours and hours looking at all sorts of wedding photos. When the time came for us to pick our wedding photographer I did a lot of searching. After hours spent browsing websites and doing interviews I was thrilled when we were able to hire Augie, our number one choice. Working with Augie was a wonderful experience. He was very professional throughout our entire experience with him and he was also very accommodating of various requests we had regarding the privacy of our photos.

We had a lot of fun working with Augie on our wedding day and when we got the photos back we were not disappointed. Not only were we extremely happy with the results, all of our friends and relatives have been gushing over them! Augie truly capture the spirit and joy of our wedding day in an amazing way.

I would highly recommend Augie's services to anyone looking for a wedding or event photographer - or even a baby photographer. I've seen some of his baby shots and they are fabulous!

Augie is awesome!!!! He is on the pricey side, but he is worth every penny! He responds quickly to every question you have & will work with whatever you have. When we first met him, we felt like we have known him for a long time already. He is very friendly,very easy going, & easy to work with. When he is on the job, he is very passionate. His work is genius! He has this unique eye & will just place you with whatever he sees in his mind; When you see the picture, it is just pure art. His engagement session is free & he uses this time to get to know you as a couple, how you act with each other, what your angles are, etc. The engagement photo shoot is like the "practice" shoot. He doesn't just take the pictures; he gives you cues and teaches you what you need to do and what you need to work on until the wedding to make your pictures better. Our engagement photo shoot was in Disneyland & California Adventure to match our Disney Fairy Tale wedding & it was a bit challenging because being romantic & kissy in front of a lot of people was a little uncomfortable, but Augie taught us to loosen up. At our wedding, he was so reassuring, we felt at ease with him. Shooting our wedding pictures was way easier than our engagement photos because we were able to remember what we needed to work on & the photos turned out beautifully!!!
