I’m a digital photographer easing into the profession available for weddings, commitment ceremonies and other social events in and around the San Francisco/East Bay Area.

I take the pictures, edit them to optimize color and exposure (or erase a crasher), put them on a CD, and give them to you to print and use as you choose.

Ideal if you don’t want to pay extra for prints, negatives, packages, or albums. Also perfect for smaller or limited-budget celebrations, and informal occasions and gatherings.

For more information and to view my work, please visit my website at http://wongpix.com.

About me:

Although I have been active in photography for over 20 years, I have only recently adopted it as a true profession. So, I have been a professional photographer for five years, and an amateur photographer for 20 years. I’m not sure what that means, except that I used to do it for free for friends and now I’m charging for it for strangers. However, the quality and care are the same. I treat every event as if it was my best friend’s wedding. I guess that’s what one could call the personal touch, and I guess that’s what I provide.

P.S. I think my work speaks for itself; I prefer not to impose on my clients by soliciting reviews and endorsements from them. That’s just the way I do business. If you require reviews and/or endorsements, my apologies. I can provide references if they are important to you. Read less

Harvey wong was very nice and helpful, he was very responsive and responded extremly quickly to all emails sent as well as had recomendations for rainy weather , he even ronded back his hours that he was there , we were there 40min late to the ceremony he was there 40 minutes early, the only recomendation is to have a list of pictures you want and somone to make sure there is somone to keep track of what has been taken already
