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!

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!

Ai Ling was an absolute dream to work with. We found her through the preferred vendor list provided by our ceremony/reception venue, and instantly fell in love with her unique style of candid photography.

Ai Ling returned emails and phone calls promptly, and was flexible regarding when and where to meet for our initial consultation. We booked her immediately after that meeting, and Ai Ling shot our engagement session soon thereafter. Ai Ling made us (two very camera-phobic individuals) feel at ease during the shoot, and it showed in our stunning pictures. We received a disc of all the images about two weeks after the session, which is super quick!

Several weeks prior to our wedding, Ai Ling sent us a form to fill out detailing who we wanted pictures with (my side of the family, my husband's side, the grandmas, etc.), which we then sent back to her. She was SO on top of everything, which we greatly appreciated.

On the day of the wedding, Ai Ling was warm and professional. She took many candid photos throughout the evening (which we LOVED), and was also able to gather the groups we wanted for more formal, posed photos in a way that wasn't bossy or demanding. She was so great!

We received the disc of digital negatives from the wedding less than a month later- super fast as far as wedding photography goes. Ai Ling had organized the thousands of photos into folders on the disc labeled "reception," "ceremony," "posed," "toasts," etc., which was helpful when choosing which photos we wanted to print. My husband and I spent an entire evening looking through the disc of photos, overjoyed to relive our wedding day and also loving all the candid photos Ai Ling had captured of our loved ones.

Ai Ling has a true knack for taking beautiful photos and making people feel comfortable in front of the camera. She is professional, flexible, and worth every penny.

Choosing Ai Ling as our photographer was the best wedding decision we made. She is incredibly responsive and professional, and goes above and beyond to make sure her clients are happy. She listened to any suggestions and concerns we had and worked around our schedules. She was as invested as we were in having great photographs. She even picked me up in her car one morning and drove me around St. Paul so that I could see possible photo options for the wedding pictures.

Most importantly, she provided us with breathtaking photographs. Every person who sees them tells me how beautiful they are, and I wholeheartedly agree. It was really difficult to choose a photographer because my husband is a graphic designer and very picky. He loved every one of our wedding photographs and agrees that we made a very, very good call hiring Ai Ling. My friend Jason perhaps said it best when he saw the pictures, "Dear god you guys, these are incredible photos, she did a fantastic job!"

Take a look at her portfolio and you will see what I mean.

We absolutely loved Ai Ling's photos! Choosing the right photographer and getting great photos was very important to us, so we chose carefully after meeting with several vendors and could not be happier with how everything turned out. Ai Ling was so easy to work with, very patient and flexible, and offered great ideas for shots and locations. And the photos are amazing - we get compliments on them all of the time (really, people are blown away). We were also impressed by how many photos were taken and the fact we have access to them all (and got this access very soon after the wedding! I've heard horror stories about it taking forever to get wedding photos back and we had them within weeks). We are so, so happy with our photos and would highly recommend Ai Ling!

Ling is an incredibly talented and passionate photographer. Ourselves along with all of our friends and family were blown away with the quality of her work. Not only is she extremely talented but she is also very professional and was always so quick to respond if we ever had any questions. Consider that your wedding pictures are always going to be something you'll have and cherish so it's well worth the splurge!! She is simply amazing at what she does!! We will most definitely be contacting her in the future!! Thanks Ling!!

Warm Regards,
Michelle & Tommy

My husband and I do not typically like to be photographed, and rarely do we like ourselves in photos. Ling Photography went above and beyond in making us both feel comfortable having our pictures taken and in the finished product. We were absolutely thrilled with how the photographs turned out, and there were so many that we loved, not just liked, that it will be a huge challenge for use to pick our favorites. She has an amazing eye for how to position people to capture their best qualities, and her calm and easy demeanor made it easy for us to comply. What we love the most is how she was able to capture the feelings of the day and we now have amazing pictures that will be forever treasured.. Hands down the best money spent on our wedding!

Simply put, choose Ai Ling as your wedding photographer! We used her for our Aug 2012 wedding and are beyond happy we did. Ai Ling is extremely accommodating, gentle, calming, patient, organized, and most importantly, a true talent. I was a little concerned having only 1 photographer, and at times she was so quiet I didn't even know she was there, but when I saw the pictures she took, she absolutely nailed it. She not only captured the emotion of the day, but she also beautifully and creatively captured every detail of the set up and decorations we put so much time into. Our wedding day was a little crazy with family who wasn't good as staying put for pictures, to sun, clouds, wind, rain, outside, inside, under a tent...and Ai Ling handled it all effortlessly. She provided the perfect amount of guidance when setting up posed pictures, she kept us on schedule, and was invisible when capturing such poignant candid shots. Our pictures look like the ones you see in the wedding websites and magazines you strive to achieve but never thought you'd get. Her website says, "I see things a little differently", and she truly does and it shows in her work. Plus, her wedding packages are a great value compared to others out there, you simply cannot go wrong. Thank you Ai Ling, you gave us a gift we will cherish for a lifetime.

Ling Photography went above and beyond my expectations. I dare to say that she was our MVP vendor on our wedding day. Ling not only takes beautiful photos but also knows a lot about weddings and served as a pseudo personal attendant for me. She is so easy to work with and puts everyone at ease. Her calm and cool demeanor allowed me to relax at times when things got a little stressful. Photography was very important for my husband and I and we looked at many vendors but am soooo happy we decided to go with Ling. We not only ended up with many engagement photos to use for our stationery but now have beautiful wedding photos to share with our friends and family. Could not be happier! Book her now, you will not regret it!

If I can impart only one word of advice to future brides and grooms it would be to do your research and to spend the time it takes to find a photographer whose work you love. We were lucky - Ai Ling was the first photographer we met and we knew instantly that we wanted to hire her for our wedding. And oh my gosh, the photos are fantastic! We can't thank her enough for capturing the fun, emotion and joy of our day so beautifully. She was a dream to work with - the initial consultation was low pressure and fun. The day of our engagement session we were running late after a stressful day at the office and were having some trouble relaxing. She managed to send us home with a completely uplifted mood and such fun photos. She was also incredibly fast with her responses any time we had a question - both before the wedding, and after. We've received many compliments on how professional, fun and wonderful she was on the day of our wedding. Ai Ling was everywhere at once and that shines through in our photos. We really couldn’t have asked for more out of our wedding photographer. She really took the time to get to know us and to make sure we were happy. We never felt like just another "job" to her. It means so much to have captured such wonderful memories of our joined families and friends…She is truly amazing! Do yourself a favor and hire Ai Ling as your wedding photographer. Every positive adjective you can think of - friendly, amazing, talented, interesting, fun, caring, brilliant - these describe our photographer! Her turn around time on the final wedding photos was so much faster than ever expected - she had our images to us in less than 3 weeks after our wedding! The investment was worth every penny and we will cherish our photos forever. We are thrilled to have met Ai Ling and will absolutely request to work with her any other time we may find ourselves in need of a photographer. Thank you!

Ai Ling did an amazing job with our photos and her creativity really blew us away. She even did a gif. file of our wedding party doing the wave. She also jumped on the party bus with us to get some great action shots (including a stop at the bowling alley!). She really is up for anything and has a genuine gift for finding creative shots. She's also flexible and is great at answering questions as they come up.

Ai Ling was definitely a highlight of our wedding experience. She has a very calming presence that helped us relax and enjoy, resulting in gorgeous memories of our wedding day. She is so much more than a wedding photographer, what she creates is pure art! We have received so many compliments on our wedding photographs. It simply does not compare to standard wedding photography. We could not be happier and would whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone wanting a fabulous photographer.

Words cannot describe the amazing job Ai ling did in capturing my wedding day. After seeing her work a few years ago for a coworker’s wedding I knew that there was no other photographer for me. She was the only photographer I met with and I have never regretted that decision. Between the trips to IKEA to pick out material for the photo station and her support during a tragedy I began to think of her more as a friend. The images she captured that day not only displayed her talent but also her passion for what she does. I have countless images of my wedding day the leave me speechless each time I look at them. She is not just your typical photographer. She does everything she promises and then some. I was blown away not only for the images, but also her professionalism. I received shortly after my wedding and she was always quick to answer an email. Booking Ai Ling was the best choice I made in my wedding planning. I plan on using her again in the future to capture other important moments in my life.

Ai Ling did a great job on our wedding pictures! She really captured the spirit and "story" of our day. She got a lot of great posed pictures as well as many photos of great little special moments throughout the day. She was also very helpful (and calming) to me-- as the bride. She was able to wrangle everybody into pictures in a nice and polite way. She is fun to work with and listens to your needs. She is great! In general, photography is very expensive-- probably one of the most expensive parts of any wedding day. With Ai Ling, I really feel like I got my money worth. Ai Ling puts a lot of time and thought into her work. Thank you, Ai Ling!

Ai Ling is very talented, professional, patient and creative! We absolutely love working with her and we thoroughly enjoy her beautiful and artistic work. She's been very accomodating to our requests and my family raved about how nice and efficient she is. It also helps that she can understand Chinese and Malay so she can communicate with my family members who don't speak English. We definitely recommend her service!

If I could give Ai Ling a rating of higher than 5 here I would because she is just so incredibly fabulous. Ai shot a couple of my friends' weddings and when I saw their pictures I was so impressed I knew we wanted to book her for our big day.

From start to finish the experience is polished and professional. Ai is very organized and makes sure all details are taken care of. She was very quick to respond to any questions I had leading up to our wedding, which is so appreciated by a bride with dozens of vendors to keep track of and a million details floating around.

The package we purchased included an engagement session in addition to the wedding day shoot. I have rarely had a professional photographer taking my picture so the engagement shoot was a great way to get to know Ai and get more comfortable being natural in front of the camera. I think having that time with Ai beforehand helped us relax more on the big day.

Before the wedding day, Ai provided us with a form where we could capture all of the posed shots we wanted. That's just a perfect example of how Ai keeps everything organized and ensures that she's prepared. She is a pro!

On the day of our wedding, I was nervous and thinking about the million details and tasks that needed to be done but during photos, Ai's calm demeanor helped keep me relaxed. After the wedding, I was thinking about how many times I noticed Ai Ling shooting during the day (outside of the posed pictures) and it was maybe once? She is like a ghost! She has a way of being in every place all at once but in an unobtrusive and quiet way.

We got our pictures within 3 weeks of our wedding, which in comparison to other photographers, is lighting fast. She posted a small set of images on her blog so we could quickly and easily share some with friends and family but then she also created a private online gallery with all the photos. She also sent us a DVD in the mail and it came beautifully packaged--it felt like Christmas! Seeing our photos for the first time was absolutely amazing. Ai's pictures don't just document the day, they tell the story of our wedding. Every time I look through them, I feel like I'm re-living the emotion of the day. I am so thrilled that we will have those visual memories forever.

In addition to everything Ai provided in our package, we also get a flushmount wedding album. We get to choose 50 photos and Ai will create a physical album for us.

I could not be any happier with our experience with Ai Ling. I know several other brides that have also used her services and have heard nothing but gushing. She is THE best!!

We were honored to have Ai Ling was our wedding photographer! Her creative and artistic eye captured so many beautiful moments from our wedding. She was very professional and attentive to every detail. She ensured every shot we wanted taken was captured.

Our package also included an Engagement session and the pictures turned out stunning. She was able to capture our personalities in every shot and she truly created pieces of art.

Throughout the wedding she was able to capture so many priceless moments. Ai ling is always willing to go the extra mile. We loved being able to share the blog post with our friends and family. Our friends and family loved her work.

She was well worth the investment. We look forward to working with her in the future.

My husband and I were married in a blizzard and Ai Ling made sure she made it to our wedding regardless of the fact she was in a car accident on her way to our wedding. She remained professional and was creative in her photos despite what happened earlier in the day.

Due to the weather, we rescheduled where pictures were going to be taken before the wedding and Ai Ling was flexible and prepared for the changes.

Ai Ling's photography is simply amazing! We constantly show off our engagement and wedding photos. The response is always that the pictures truly capture who we are, yet are creative and capture the surroundings.

We definitely would recommend Ai Ling to everyone for a wedding, engagement photos, etc. She definitely exceeds expectations and is a great value!!

The one thing we KNEW in the beginning of planning our wedding was that we wanted an amazing photographer.

A good friend of mine mentioned Ai Ling to me, so I looked up her site and her work and immediately sent her an email. We connected right away and she was very down to earth, flexible and professional. She is responsive and very organized in how she handles her business, so it makes the planning that much easier on the bride and groom.

The advice everyone gives you for your wedding day is 'take time to take it in, because it flies by super fast.' This is so true. And, we took time to take it in, but it's impossible to do that the entire night because it's such a whirlwind of a time. The next day, you wake up and it feels like it was all a dream.

However, when you have a truly talented, photojournalist-style photographer there to capture the moments for you and tell your story, you get to relive your wedding day as many times as you want.

Ai Ling, we absolutely love our photos! Thanks to you and your gifted eye, we didn't miss a moment of our wedding day.

Cheers!

Ai is an incredibly talented photographer and both our engagement and wedding pictures turned out beautifully. I was so impressed with her work. From the moment I first contacted her she was quick with her responses to our questions, putting our pictures on her blog, and getting our images sent to us. She was very professional throughout out shoots and even put up with my fiance/husband being a little cranky. Throughout our wedding day she was always right there, getting pictures of every moment. I felt her prices were reasonable and her work was worth every penny. I've recommended Ling Photography to many of my friends and will continue to do so.

When we first met Ai Ling, both my husband and I knew we wanted to hire her for our wedding. She was quiet yet personable. During our engagement session and wedding she had a way of putting us both at ease (especially me who dislikes having my picture taken ,ore than anything else!). Our wedding pictures are absolutely amazing. We had a small, simple wedding, yet Ai Ling had the eye to get all of the details. She was friendly with everyone and very patient. Her unique style shines through each picture. I don't think we could have asked for more. The investment was totally worth it for us!

We were so lucky to have Ai Ling photograph our November 7, 2009 wedding on the North Shore of Minnesota. We had a beautiful November day to celebrate our marriage, and Ai only added to our experience. She was a calm, quiet presence that day, who captured the beauty, love, excitement and happiness of our event. I am not sure how Ai and her assistant did it, but they seemed to be everywhere at once. The pictures perfectly capture the feel of our day with moments I was not aware of until I saw the pictures! The book we ordered turned out beautifully and sits on our table as a daily reminder. I highly recommend her services. She is enthusiastic about her work. She is willing to put the time in to achieve great results and she is able to put into picture an unforgettable story. Thank you Ai!

I choked up when the blog of our wedding went up. Ai Ling captured not only the images of our wedding but the emotions and the essence of the day. It was a beautiful reminder of our hard work realized and I couldn't be more delighted and in love with our memories from her. I knew from the engagement pictures she di...d of us that our wedding photos would be equally magnificent. She exceeded our expectations a million times over and I was not prepared for how emotional a single photograph could make me.

Ai Ling is not only talented, she is intuitive in her work, and creates art with YOU as the subject. We had Ai Ling come in from out of town because there wasn't anyone else we wanted to shoot our wedding and I am so happy we chose her. She makes even the most camera weary(my husband!) open up and is so comfortable to be around. She is constatly pushng the envelope and I highly recommend her, she's an amazing, fresh, photographer. I cannot say enough good things about Ai Ling!!

Ai Ling has a creative, fresh approach to photography, while staying open to specific shots you want to take. She is also very friendly, fun, and personable.

Our pictures turned out beautifully. They captured those little moments during the day we don't ever want to forget. She also took some beautiful portraits we will always treasure. I don't know anyone who has such unique and artistic wedding portraits.

In addition, Ai Ling had our pictures done and sent to us in two weeks. She sends you a DVD with all of your pictures in color, black and white, and some that she has enhanced the colors. The albums are of highest quality.

We are extremely lucky to have found Ling Photography - and in turn have been blessed with the most beautiful wedding pictures. Ai Ling is the type of person you want to stay in touch with, and I can't wait for an excuse to use her again. (She also takes beautiful portraits of children and families)

Ai Ling's photos are beautiful, and she is very easy to work with. Her patience is golden. I'm likely to be more at ease behind the camera rather than in front of one, but Ai Ling made our shoots light and fun. We were completely relaxed and had a good time. She covered a lot of ground at our wedding - it was fun going through the pics and seeing all the amazing shots we didn't even know she had taken. Ai Ling truly has a gift for capturing moments in a professional and artistic manner. I highly recommend Ling Photography!

She has been able to capture our journey to becomming a family. From the amazing engagement session to the big day and now our family photos with our son, she has been able to tell our story. She has a unique and special ways of saying emotions with pictures. We have changed times and dates and she has always worked with us. She always makes you feel beautiful and tells the message you want people to see. I know that she will be with our family for years to come.

She made sure to capture all of the pictures we wanted for the day. Before the event she was easy to get a hold of, was quick with her responses, and was very helpful. Her eye for unique and great pictures is something to note!
