Working with Happy Photos was a wonderful experience. There are no words to describe the beauty that Xuong created in our pictures. If you want someone who puts his heart and soul into every image he shoots, this is that man. The softness and love was delivered in each photo. Our engagement book came out unbelievable. Everyone at our wedding was impressed and could only say they have never seen such amazing work. We can't wait to see our wedding pictures. Your the best Xuong.

I can't say enough good things about our photographers from Happy Photos. They were so great to work with! They were both so friendly and shared in the joy of the day. They were terrific with the kids, moving large groups around, and accommodating changes in the timeline on the fly. They really thought on their feet and worked hard to make the night go seamlessly. And like great photographers … they worked quietly and were hardly seen -- true photo ninjas! They did an incredible job!

Xoung was a great photographer. He was very flexible with our engagement photo session (we kept cancelling and rescheduling). On our wedding day he showed up an hour early and began taking photos. He was also very patient with all the girls and I because we took so long to get ready, we were an hour off schedule! During the reception he had set up a screen with the engagement photos, post-ceremony/pre-ceremony photos, everyone loved them and they were beautiful! He was never in the way of any dancing or major events, but got great photos of all of them! And every time I asked him for a specific photo, he would gather all the people for me. Overall, great photographer, very patient and helpful!

Not everyone will have the perfect experience with their wedding photographer. Think about it. For just about every photographer there will be cases where things just don’t work out well. That was my case with my wedding photographer, Xuong with Happy Photos. I have been frustrated from the day of my wedding, 08/04/12, to today. As others have posted, it was not clear that I would not receive the raw files of any of my wedding photos. Xuong wants an additional 2k to be paid for me to receive my raw files. If he gave me the files, I would be happy to order prints and albums from him, but as it is we won’t be ordering hardly anything and he ends up receiving less money from us in the end. There were other little things. My promised online wedding gallery has been down for the last 6 months. Twice when I went to meet Xuong in his office I had to wait 15 minutes for him to arrive in the building, this with an appointment. None of this compares to how I feel about the actual pictures themselves. I truly feel they are unoriginal and posed. No creative shots. No black and white shots. Nothing quirky. Nothing unexpected, nothing out of the ordinary. The pictures also do not look edited at all; it looks as if he just took the files from his camera and uploaded them without changing anything. I look washed out. The colors are not vibrant. In one of the photos there was a red stain on my dress which is not edited out. I specifically remember on my wedding day him laughing, assuring me it would be edited out. It is not. I have sat in Xuong’s office and clearly explained my displeasure to him and he has not done anything about it. I do not understand how he can see that I was unhappy with my wedding photographs and not offer to do anything about it. What I am saying should not come as a surprise to him because I have explained all of this to him already. It has been almost a year since my wedding and I have had plenty of time to ponder the photos.

Xuong was amazing!!! He was so easy to work with. He was never pushy (like some photographers can be). He even came out the next morning to take additional pictures. Happy Photos was the best! I would recommend them to anyone.
What blew me away is he had a slideshow within moments that our guest could view during the reception. Two words...Simply Wonderful...

I HIGHLY reccomend happy photos! Xuong & his team are so awesome! They listen to exactly what you want & the results are gorgeous. Xuong went out of his way to make sure my husband & I were happy at all times. The amount & quality of his pictures are unbelievable. As a bride, I did a lot of research to find the perfect photographer. All the time paid off! I couldn't be happier! He got every shot I needed & was very quick with sending me all of the images. From one happy bride to another... Choose happy photos.

Xuong and Margie, with Happy Photos, are very personable and easy to work with. The engagement shoot was relaxed and fun! Xuong made my husband and I feel comfortable the entire time. At the wedding, he did not seem to miss a beat. We have lots of pictures from the reception and ceremony. He took great details pictures of the food, table settings and decor. My only concern was that we only had 2 hours before the ceremony to take pictures of the entire bridal party, the bride and our "first look". I would recommend requesting a little more time for this.

I am glad that I chose Happy Photos because Xuong our photographer was great and the photographs are beautiful! It was a pleasant experience because he would answer my excess number of calls and emails and always seemed so helpful. Xuong was also easy to work with and gave us exaclty what we wanted. Also, it is a good thing that he only does photography because he does it very well.
