If you are looking for an excellent engagement and/or wedding photographer then Ling Photography is the way to go. Hands down. I am a photographer myself, so I truly value the importance of great wedding photography. Before contacting Ai Ling I spotted her website and I was beyond impressed with her reviews, and most importantly, her work. Ai Ling was super flexible in meeting up for the initial meeting. We meet at a Caribou in St. Paul and went over some of her work and discussed ideas, pricing, accommodations, etc. She truly does have an unique way of seeing things. It was a joy to have her shoot for us! She is extremely attentive to our ideas and requests, and will go above and beyond to ensure you are 100% satisfied. She maintains professional, all the while having a good time with her clients. You really cannot go wrong with Ling Photography, unless you decide to go with someone else. I was so impressed by her work, and her commitment and dedication to her clients! I highly recommend Ai Ling.

If I could rate Ling Photography 10 stars, I would! Ai Ling is an incredibly creative, professional and talented photographer. She has an amazing eye for detail in every shot she takes. We could not be more pleased with the engagement and wedding photos. In addition to the wonderful photos she took for us, Ai Ling was also so helpful answering any wedding planning questions we had along the way. I couldn't be happier with every aspect of our experience, and would highly recommend Ling Photography to anyone looking for a great photographer!

Ai Ling was absolutely wonderful!! She is extremely professional and very easy to work with throughout the whole process, from pre-planning, to engagement photos, to wedding day. She responded to any question right away without fail. Photos were available within 2 weeks after the wedding, which was great. During the wedding day, she helped us get the photos we wanted and was always available to shoot anything we asked, but she was never intrusive or pushy. She was respectful of everyone and directed family and friends easily throughout photo time, which can always get a little hectic. And best of all, the photos are absolutely stunning. Could not have asked for a better photographer and would not hesitate to recommend Ai Ling to anyone!!

We love our photos! Ai Ling was just what we needed and more than we hoped for the day of our wedding. She was prompt, professional, and personable without being pushy or overbearing. Our ceremony took place under a tent in my parents' backyard, but happened to fall right in the middle of a torrential downpour -- complete with near horizontal sheets of rain coming in violent gales off the lake. Despite this turn of events, (and being drenched from head to toe herself) Ai Ling was calm and reassuring. Her flexibility with the delay and subsequent change of plans was a real blessing the day of because it was one less thing to worry about. The photos of our wedding, though waterlogged, are beautiful and real. We will treasure them. I would recommend Ai to anyone without reservation. She is dependable and easy to work with - she listens, offers helpful suggestions, and makes you feel that she really cares about your 'big day' almost as much as a longtime friend or family member would. So happy we found Ai Ling! -Anna & Dust

We are so ecstatic about our wedding pictures that we recently received from Ling Photography! She did such a wonderful job, especially at making people feel at ease and that they can be themselves in front of the camera. Her calm demeanor is perfect for the stressful day, and she has great advice. She knows what she is doing.
She is so responsive and quick with getting your pictures edited and sent to you! We received our wedding pictures in a little over 2 weeks, which is crazy fast considering other photographers usually take 4-8 weeks!
The best piece of advice I can give for an engaged couple is to research photographers and to choose one based on style and quality, not price. She is worth every penny. She captured our day beautifully.
We received over 1800 pictures from our wedding!
I have nothing but good words to say about Ling Photography, and I would fully recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer!

Ai Ling has a beautiful and unique style for her photography. She's very experienced and does styled shoots for magazines, so she's GREAT at seeing the angles and lighting that will give you the best pictures. If you are awkward in front of the camera, she does an awesome job of helping you adjust your body so that it looks more natural.

Kevin and I absolutely love the photos we got from Ling Photography and would highly recommend that you use Ai for all your photography needs!!!

Ai Ling has a beautiful and unique style for her photography. She's very experienced and does styled shoots for magazines, so she's GREAT at seeing the angles and lighting that will give you the best pictures. If you are awkward in front of the camera, she does an awesome job of helping you adjust your body so that it looks more natural.

Kevin and I absolutely love the photos we got from Ling Photography and would highly recommend that you use Ai for all your photography needs!!! Read less

I met Ai Ling back in 2007 when she was starting up Ling Photography and I was a young, aspiring model. I remember falling in love with her work because it was beautiful and true to the heart. That's when I knew one day when I would get married, she would be my wedding photographer.

And sure enough, a couple years later, I got engaged and immediately contacted her. She helped us through the engagement photos, and she continued to stay in contact until the wedding day by sending inspiring wedding photos, notes, and DIY. She's so thoughtful.

At the wedding day, she was fast and ready to take photos! Just what I needed! I have a huge family, so you can imagine how crazy it would be like to take photos of 20 people ... nope! Not for Ai Ling! She kept her cool the whole time and directed us in a calmly order to get the photos done properly. Not only was she a photographer, but to me, a life saver! Her soft-spoken, calm demeanor help calm me down, especially when things weren't going right. At the end of the day, she had been a huge help!

When we got our photos, our friends and family loved it! They could see the warmth and love my husband and I have for each other, and the joy and happiness from our guests at the wedding. We couldn't be happier having Ai Ling as our wedding photographer.

Her abilities to take photos were just as I remember ...Beautiful and true to the heart.

Ai Ling did both my engagement photo shoot and the wedding day photography. And she really helped to make the wedding memorable for all who was there. She actually spent more time on the wedding day photo shoot that we had agreed before, to make sure we have pictures not only from the ceremony in the Lyndale park, but also from the reception following it! She was extremely professional, above taking great photos and super smooth collaboration. She was very helpful when it come to group pictures with family members including 3 kids (6, 4 and 2 years old). Also, she had a stain removal pen for white clothes, that saved me from spending half of my wedding day with a stain on the side of my dress from a bug that smashed into it. She sent us about one thousand great pictures, 150 of which were professionally processed and perfected using photo editing software. I think it was really a lot of pictures for a small family wedding that we had, and for the price we paid.

I can't say enough good things about Ai and her services. Initially I was nervous about hiring a professional photographer because our wedding was very small (8 guests) and I thought she would be conspicuous. Instead, I hardly noticed her at all, she was so stealthy! And yet, she captured some of the most touching, intimate moments. Our couples session after the ceremony was a blast and she suggested a location that was so perfect for us, I'm embarrassed we didn't think of it first.

As for the final product, the images took my breath away! We got them within a couple of weeks after our wedding and they are all stunning. Choosing which ones to frame is going to be a major challenge. Ai is exceptionally talented and worth every penny!
