Lu & Zan are the absolute best! My husband is a bit camera shy, but he felt immediately comfortable around Lu & Zan and that shined through in the pictures. They were beyond helpful and responsive from the first e-mail all the way to ordering our wedding books. The pictures came out better than we could have imagined and I am just so grateful they were able to be part of our special day because they made the day! Could not recommend them enough.

OUT OF THIS WORLD! I cannot say enough good things about Lu and Zan! As background, my husband and I had to move up our wedding date suddenly because of my father's health. We had already booked Lu and Zan for the big wedding we had planned, but needed a photographer for the new courthouse ceremony and dinner we had to plan in only three weeks. Lou and Zan committed to the event almost immediately. They worked with us on a reasonable price and were flexible as we ironed out the details. In such a stressful time, I cannot express how refreshing it was to work with a vendor who was so kind, down-to-earth, and willing to work with us as we made last-minute and sometimes-changing arrangements.

Needless to say, the photos are fantastic and more spectacular than I could have imagined! They are true artists and made my 5'2 self feel like a 5'10 model. Beyond this, Lu and Zan's upbeat, positive, and fun personalities made the day even more fabulous. They fit right in with the group and navigated multiple (big and demanding) personalities with ease. We had a few photos of the wedding emailed to us within the weekend, had access to our photos online within the week, and received our thumb-drive exactly one week later. Lu even rushed print orders so we could give framed photos as Christmas presents (we got married December 11). I will absolutely be recommending them to everyone I know!

I have heard of many a horror story in regards to things that go wrong in regards to peoples weddings especially when it comes to being disappointed in the photos that the newlyweds are left with. Well, we can tell you that, that certainly is not the case with the photos we got and the whole experience of working with and getting to know both Lu and her husband. We met with them a few times prior to our nuptuals and felt very assured and confident that our day would be captured in a most beautiful and professional way. They were very engaging during the days activities, yet never intrusive-just a delight to work with. If you are in need of getting your wedding pics done right we very strongly recommend PhotoArt by Lu.

Lu and her husband are probably the most amazing duo you will ever meet!! Honestly, if it wasn't awkward I would probably call them up to be our new couple friends (and I'm pretty sure she'd love it)! We all know how important the photography is at your wedding and so we really made it a point to really search for a great photographer. My husband is actually the one who found Lu and loved the way she played with lighting and arranged the couples. The first time we talked to Lu what really set her apart in our minds was that she was so helpful! Once we talked she also gave us some questions we should always ask a photographer when searching for a good fit. She didn't have to do that at all, for all she knew we would take her advice and go with someone else, but she told us she has a passion for couples and loves what she does -it showed in that moment and every single one after. Clearly we hired her and I have never been more impressed with a vendor (and I work in the wedding industry)!
For our engagement shoot they got there early to "scout" the grounds and find the perfect places for us to take pictures. People told me how awkward the engagement photos could be, but by the time we were done laughing with her and her husband the shoot was done and we felt great! From that time on she kept in touch with us to make sure we were OK and helped us to figure out the timeline for photography. She is much more than a photographer, I tell you they are either super-hero's or just the most amazing couple! At our wedding my bridal party could not stop laughing as she made us all feel at ease and made my husband and I feel so special. She made sure what we wanted happened, kept us on time, and was just a ball of fun! She was worth every penny and two weeks later we have our photo-thumb drives in hand! I absolutely love her and when my husband and I talk back on that day she and her husband are two people we mention with smiles. Love ya Lu! I can't thank you enough!

Lu is an extremely talented, not to mention incredibly fun and creative photographer. Everyone loved her, and her amazing work. She had wonderful ideas, kept everyone in check and captured all of our moments without having to be reminded. Her whole process was extremely organized and she came overly prepared the day of the wedding. Who doesn't love that!?! You will feel 100 percent taken care of when working with Lu and her team. I wasn't worried about a thing. The pictures speak for themselves. Book your wedding with Lu, trust me!

Lu and Zan were great to work with! They made us feel very comfortable from the engagement pictures and up to the wedding day. They were always responsive and had very quick turnarounds on getting us our photos. We were surprised/excited to get our wedding photos so soon, especially when we've heard from friends that their photographers took months to get them back; we got ours back in about a week. Not only were Lu and Zan great, their work is awesome. We loved all the moments they captured for us and could not ask for anything more. I would highly recommend them for their services!

Lu and Zan were an amazing team. The photos for both our engagement session and wedding were stunning, and they captured the beauty of the venue and day perfectly. They were really responsive from day 1 when I first met them. I was only in VA for a weekend as I live out of town, but Lu and Zan were super flexible and able to meet with me at a local Panera on really short notice. In addition to being responsive, they were so fast! I got my wedding photos digitally while I was on my honeymoon! I couldn't believe how quickly I got everything. If I could change anything, I would have hired them for more hours on my wedding day so we could have taken more family photos. I've already recommended them to a few friends.

Lu and her husband were an AMAZING team. First of all, she is very easy to get along with. She showed up and took charge of coordinating all the photos and event timing. She communicated with us every step of the way! Her and her husband worked so hard all night - out on the dance floor, taking requests for different guests. Our pictures that we got back are of amazing quality. There are so many I want to frame! Not only are our couple portraits beautiful but she managed to get almost everyone during the dancing part of the night! We are all very pleased with our pictures and people have been commenting on how good they are!

The best decision that we made for our wedding by far was selecting PhotoArt by Lu as our photographer. Lu and Zan are an incredible duo that is sure to capture every single detail that you have so lovingly selected for what is sure to be one of the most important days of your lives. We initially met Lu and Zan at a wedding exposition a couple of years before our wedding, and although we had no clue what venue we were going to choose or when it would be, the one thing we knew is that we wanted PhotoArt by Lu to document our special day. So before booking our wedding venue, we made sure to check their availability before moving forward - and that is a decision that we certainly do not regret!

We were pleased to have them photograph our engagement session, and those pictures were a breathtaking story of our love. With just us, and a scenic beach area, Lu was able to capture the various sides to our relationship - the silly, romantic, and timeless nature of it. After our engagement session, we were excited to spend the day of our wedding with Lu and Zan because we knew that we were in great hands.

Your wedding day will come and go, and your photographs will remain as an enduring reminder of every little detail that you do not want to ever forget. The day of our wedding was made that much more special by having Lu and Zan there. We had the best day of our lives, and it all came across in the photo art that was produced. Lu and Zan felt like special guests at our event, beyond being our photography vendors, and we cannot thank them enough for creating everlasting memories the day of our wedding.

Not only are Lu and Zan immaculately talented, they are wonderful human beings that will make you feel comfortable enough like you have known them for years. So if you are reading this, we promise you will not regret choosing this great duo for your special event!
