A close friend of mine recommended Taky of LA Color for videography. Initially I was nervous as I wasn’t his traditional client (eastern Asian), but when I saw some samples of his product, and the enthusiasm with which he showed them to me, I knew the choice was made. Taky puts SO much into the final product. Whether its amazing bloopers that keeps you laughing from beginning to end, or dedications, or highlights. He even edits the full length film and puts in all the necessary chapter breaks/skips to be able to navigate it with ease. In addition to quantity, he gives you the ultimate quality. They manage to not only get the key moments between the couple, but all the incredible dance moves and fun expressions of the guests as well. I cannot say enough about all the incredible additional things Taky brings as a videographer, whether it is jumping in the middle of the dance floor to get the best shot, to making a compilation of our proposal and our honeymoon pictures. He literally does each video as a project of passion and it comes shining through with the end product. We absolutely love our DVD/Blu-Ray set, whose production from literally its cover to all the menus is flawless! Since the product, Taky has gone out of his way to provide us with all the relevant online clips just so we can share the files electronically too. I absolutely recommend Taky and the LA Color Team! My only caution is to warn your guests about Taky and that he make poke them for some funny bloopers!!! The guests that got into it had such fun, some of the other guests were caught off guard initially. We also had a delay in getting the final product ( its 6 months after the wedding date) though in Taky’s defense he had a sudden illness. Also, there is so much more included than any other videographer, that it makes sense it takes longer. Taky was able to capture the essence of one of the most special days of our lives, so that we can enjoy it for the rest of our lives!!

Sam from LA Color made our day simply spectacular and I don't believe we would have had such a wedding without them.
After reading a bunch of positive reviews, we went ahead and ordered the photo classic package. I was little worried at first because I thought we may be the unlucky ones and get unsatisfactory service but that was just me being a paranoid bride-to-be! After having a little chat with Sam, I felt reassured that this was going to be a fantastic event and we even went on to hire the photobooth too.

Sam was extremely polite, sociable and professional. He knew how to work the crowd and was able to control a big group. He was very creative with his shots and they came out really well in the end. We needed a little retouching on a few photos and he was a pro at that too. We had over 1,000 high resolution pictures to choose from.

The photobooth was star of the show! The kids loved it and so did we. You get a preview of the pose before it takes the picture, which was cool. You also get to choose between a color or black & white photo. I was expecting photobooth pictures to not be anything special but it produced high quality photos. The booth was stylish too and blended in with our theme.

Overall, the day was made less stressful thanks to Sam and his team. I would certainly recommend them to family & friends. Very professional. Thanks guys!

I am so glad that my husband and I hired Sam and Taky to do our wedding photography and videography (April 2014).

We had Sam take our engagement photos (March 2014). He is really understanding and easy to work with and did a wonderful job recommending beautiful settings and poses to make sure we had amazing and memorable pictures.

They didn't just record the events of our wedding day; they participated and captured lot of amazing moments that we will never forget. They engaged with our guests and made the event special for everyone. It added that little something extra that made our day even more magical. Sam, Taky and their team made everything go smoothly and no details were missed. Their team was sharp, professional and friendly.

We had Taky do a same-day-edit and it was a real hit at the banquet. He did an amazing job directing and telling the story of our wedding.

We are so happy we had Taky and Sam record our wedding and we highly recommend LA Color for wedding photography and videography.

Let me just begin this review by saying LA color is simply amazing!

We started working with Taky 3-month before our wedding, b/c we wanted to create a cute little clip to tell our love story at our wedding. Some of our guests are our parents' friends, so they don't necessarily know me and my husband that well. I showed Taky an only clip I liked and had a few ideas myself, but had no idea how to execute them at all. Taky was so patient listening to my ideas and brainstorming with us. My husband and I obviously are not professional actors, so I was worried that the clip would come out to be super awkward. However, Taky's easygoing personality and sense of humor made the filming process very fun and easy. We were laughing the whole time while we filmed, and were even able to incorporate our dog in our video which really meant a lot to us! The final product definitely exceeded my expectation and it was a huge hit at our wedding!

On our wedding day, the whole team (3 photographers and 2 videographers) showed up earlier than their appointment time to capture our makeup session and wedding prep. That was such a nice gesture and I was not expecting it at all. Taky and Sam, having been through countless weddings before, have their unique eyes and ways in capturing the spirit of the wedding. They simply get it and show sincere appreciation of the amount of work the bride puts into the wedding, so they captured an incredible amount of details that otherwise would have been missed. My wedding was a Chinese/American fusion wedding and I love every single moment they captured for me during the tea ceremony. Not to mention the same day edit was the highlight of the wedding without a doubt.

Like most brides, I was very conscious about our budget, but let me just say every single dollar we pay for the service provided by LA color is well worth its value and much more. It has been the best decision I made for my wedding, apart from marrying my husband on that day. =P

I came across LA Color through a friend on facebook. Upon having the first meeting with Taky and Sam, I wanted to hire them. I love their high energy and sense of humor. I could not be more happier with my choice on this team. I chose them for video, photography, and photobooth. Their whole team did an excellent job on capturing the special moments of my special day. Taky did an excellent job on our same day edit video. It was a special surprised that was unforgettable! Thank you for that Taky! It made our wedding day even more special.

I just had my wedding about a month ago & I am really glad I chose Taky & his team for the video,photo & lighting services. At first I was debating if I want to have a videographer but it's totally worth it. It helped capture every single moment throughout that day, which I would not have caught without it being filmed..It was a pretty demanding day for a bride, with back to back events with barely even enough time to drink water :)

What I absolutely love about it was the 'same day edit' . It was super impressive for Taky & his team to create a short video from the events that day ,presented during reception for us to view.The ' at the moment' feel was captured beautifully marking a deep memory for my husband and I.

They did an amazing job on the lighting as well, making the whole ambiance feels so romantic & intimate. A plus is that they provide photo booth services at a flat rate if you get their lighting services.

What I admired about everyone on his team was they are so dedicated & easy to work with.Thanks to Sam & team ,our main photograher as well in taking so much thought & patience to capture 'moments of magic'.

I would highly recommend LA Color for every future brides to be!!!!

First of all my wife and I wish we could have given La color more than jus 5 stars.  They truly deserve so much more. We remember searching for a videographer to shoot for our wedding so we looked up wedding wire and came across so many vendors to choose from.  So we listed down the names and la color was one of the top choices on our list.  I remember calling and speaking to Taky for the first time he was working in Hawaii.  I could remember his voice so energetic after already working 12 hour. That's a good sign for anyone looking for videographer. When we schedule an appointment to meet for the first time Taky was very easy to talk To. when He showed us the video at that moment we already knew he's the one for us. So we hired Taky to be are guy and he definitely did not let us down.  Everything was jus so perfect on sep 22 2013.  We love the lighting, slide show gobo lightings and much more, what we didn't expected was Taky surprise us with the "same day edit" highlights of the entire day.  That was a surprise gift from him.  We felt so touch because we know how much work he put in. He capture every moment and when i say everything i mean everything, he recorded my wife and i funny reaction when watching the surprise "same day edit" omg so funny how we looked he's a smooth operator hehe. Everyone enjoyed the video and had a great time. Family and friends love our wedding due to the help of LA COLOR!

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE TAKY AND LA COLOR!!! Taky did such a great job on our wedding video that I literally can't stop watching the highlights on my phone! It's like re-living my special day all over again. My husband makes fun of me because on average I watch it about 10 times/day. At first we were hesitant to hire a videographer but as soon as we met with Taky, he made us feel at ease. He sure didn't disappoint and we are so glad we did. We (as well as our guests) loved Taky's energy, humor, and creativity. Taky captured every special moment perfectly and was very professional from beginning to end. He is very organized, dedicated, and communicates well with his clients. I don't write that many reviews but we were so happy with his work that I made it a point to (considering I also found LA Color on Yelp).

THANK YOU TAKY FOR EVERYTHING! :)

Choosing Taky as my videographer was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding. Taky is very professional, personable and sociable, which makes a great videographer. He captured all the special moments of my special day. I loved the different categories he added to my video. Every moment from beginning to end was captured. As I watch my video I feel like I am re-living my wedding again.

Thank you Taky for everything. A special thanks for capturing my parents and their dedication. That means the most to me.

You won't be disappointed if you get Taky to film your wedding. He is in constant contact with you from when you book him and even after you get your video. He also gives so much more that he offers. He's so kind and generous with his talent and work. You won't be disappointed.

Great job LA Color!

We got married last November. We were referred by our friend about L.A. Color. Hiring the dynamic duo (Taky and Sam) was one of the better choices we made for our wedding.

They were very helpful, and always promptly answered our questions. Both of them were very professional and willing to work with us on various options and packages.

They worked from the beginning til the very end. Unfortunately all the wedding party didn't all show up on time, so Sam made extra efforts to stay a bit later to make sure we have more than enough pictures to select from for our album. Taky was funny and entertained our guests. The video editing was superb, and Taky was able to marry the pictures and video well. And the finished product is well worth our lifetime viewing pleasure.

We will definitely see them at our friends' weddings later this year. We strongly recommend LA Color.
