My husband and I first came across Thai's work in December, 2008 when he did an e-session for one of our good friends. We were very impressed with his creativity and artistic talent and have been a fan of his work ever since. He has a blog which shows some amazing shots he has taken over the years. We first met him personally when he did our friend's wedding in August, 2009. He was so easy to work with and even made my husband comfortable enough to bring out a natural smile, which is a very hard task to do! When we saw some teasers of our friend's wedding, we were convinced that we had to have him as our wedding photographer. He was even the first vendor we booked, almost two whole years before our actual wedding...

And Thai did not disappoint. He was very flexible in working with our schedule to do our e-session. We were both going to school in Southern California at the time so we had a limited amount of time to fly up to do it. Also, Thai's lovely wife, Giao, did my hair and makeup and did a fabulous job! It was raining off and on during our e-session, but Thai worked with the elements like a pro. He had us use an umbrella as a prop which was a nice touch. We requested that Thai take some pictures at the location where my husband proposed as well as Stanford University because we had seen some of his work at that location. In between locations, we made a pit stop at my husband's house to change cars and Thai was inspired by a set of train tracks nearby. So on the way back out, he took us to take some shots on the tracks. He even laid down on the ground and on tracks to get awesome angles. The train tracks pictures turned out to be some of our favorites! It just shows what a talented artist Thai is as he came up with this on the fly. Overall, we were very pleased with the quality of the e-pics and couldn't wait for him to capture images on our wedding day.

Thai, his wife Giao, and Thai's assistant traveled down to Southern California to do our wedding which was great. Giao again did my hair and makeup and did a stunning job. Thai and his assistant arrived on time and were very efficient in taking a variety of shots such as getting ready, portraits, and detail shots. We had a couple of locations in mind of where to take pictures with our wedding party before the ceremony. Thai even scouted out the locations the day before the wedding which made the session fun very smoothly. Thai and his team were again very easy to work with and brought out my husband's natural smile again. They captured every important moment of the day and more and we will cherish those memories he captured forever. We were thrilled with the results and are SOOOO HAPPY with our decision to hire him over two years ago. We recommend Thai to anyone who is looking for a photographer who is professional, easy to work with, and has an amazing artistic eye for quality photos. Thanks for everything Thai!!!

I found out about Thai Mai Photography through my brother-in-law who hired him to shoot his wedding.

I actually got married in Southern California, and I was very unhappy about my wedding photographer. Since I wanted quality pictures, I decided to do an "aftershoot" with my wedding dress.

Needless to say, I was VERY HAPPY with the results!! Giao Nguyen Makeup Artistry did my hair and makeup and made me look like a movie star, and Thai knew how to capture San Francisco cityscapes and what we wanted.

REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE THAI MAI PHOTOGRAPHY:
1. My family and friends think that the pictures he takes belong in a magazine! He artistically edits the images to make it look very professional.
2. He knows which SF locations to shoot at and poses us very well. Everyone thought that we looked very natural in all of the pictures.
3. He is a great person to work with! He will make you laugh and act natural. :)

This review is long over due. I hired Thai to be my photographer last year for my wedding. After researching on my computer for weeks, Thai’s work caught my eye. I loved his photojournalistic style and the wonderful reviews he received from his clients. After meeting him for a consultation, I knew he was the one I needed to hire to photograph my special day. He is very professional, easy to work with and punctual. On the day of the wedding, he brought two assistants to help out and they were both awesome as well. My engagement and wedding photos turned out great. I got my wedding photos on a dvd pretty quick, but the album took a little longer. It was well worth the wait, because the album was gorgeous.

I also hired his beautiful wife, Giao Nguyen, to do my make-up and hair on the day of my wedding. She is sooooo good at what she does. She gave me a natural look for my wedding and made me look like a million bucks.

Thank you Thai and Giao for everything! You guys are soooooooo awesome and such a great team. I don’t know what I would have done without you guys being apart of my wedding. Thank you for making my wedding day perfect!

Let me just begin first by saying that i never...and i mean NEVER...write reviews about anything--not restaurants, not eBay transactions, nada. Maybe it's because I'm lazy, maybe it's because I don't have the time, but most likely because I don't think I've received a service that wowed me enough to actually praise it over the world wide web.

That is, not until my husband and I met Thai.

There aren't enough words to express our appreciation for Thai and all the amazing work he's done for our wedding. From our very first meeting with him, we knew he would be so easy to work with. He was funny, easygoing, and genuinely seemed to care about capturing all the wonderful moments from our engagement and wedding.

I'll start with our engagement shoot. We wanted to hit up two locations--the coastal trail by Land's End in San Francisco (where my husband proposed to me), and the UC Berkeley campus (where I went to school and where our relationship first began). During our engagement shoot, Thai was remarkably laid-back, gave us suggestions for what to do and how to pose (which was wonderful for us, because we had never done any sort of professional photo shoot prior to this), and put up with all the hiking and climbing on the trail. He was so flexible with all the challenges of doing this photo shoot with us! Not only did we make him hike this trail, but we also had him drive out to Berkeley afterward, where he still got some amazing shots for us! We were so happy with our engagement photos when they came out...we couldn't have imagined a better e-session experience.

And don't get me started on the actual wedding day! Thai and his assistant were very prompt, very professional, and got along wonderfully with our guests. We had family and friends come up to us after the wedding telling us how much they loved Thai, how kind and friendly he was with them, and how polite and respectful he was (which is a really big plus at a Chinese wedding)! I really want to highlight just how well he worked with our ridiculously large family: after the ceremony we had to take a combination of different photos with our immediate family, our parents, our siblings, and both sides of our extended family. Thai was really patient with everyone (just imagine what it must be like to get 30 Asians to pose for one photo), and really worked hard to make sure every family member was portrayed clearly in each shot.

Thai was also really attentive to us in capturing every single moment of our day. Because of the tight time constraints of our wedding, we couldn't give him a lot of time to take "getting ready" pics or detail shots, or even just portrait photos of us and the bridal party, but he was SO flexible with that and worked around our schedule for the day to get the shots that we wanted! After the wedding we had time to take some portrait shots and photos with the wedding party, and even though i knew everyone was exhausted, Thai was still really energetic and kept on going to get as many shots of us as possible.

All in all, I'd have to say that Thai is, hands down, one of the best photographers I have ever worked with. I've been in a bunch of weddings and have seen quite a few photographers at work, but none as friendly, easygoing, and talented as Thai. We haven't gotten our wedding photos from him yet (our wedding was only a couple weeks ago), but we know that they will look amazing! If you're a bride and you're looking for an organized, professional, and flexible wedding photographer who will get along great with your guests, Thai is definitely your guy.

I have to echo everything already stated here,

Thai has a great personality to go along with excellent photography skills. Simply the best photographer you'll ever meet. He's got talent for seeing different poses, angles that really make your photo unique and unforgettable.

My husband and I had the opportunity to work with Thai on our engagement session in San Francisco last year. I must admit, the both of us were nervous about being in front of the camera but Thai managed to make us feel at ease with his cool, calm and gregarious personality.

Thai far exceeded our expectations and we'd recommend him to anyone getting married. His hard work and love for photography is clearly evident. He has a real gift as a photographer.

On top of all that, his fee is beyond reasonable, especially considering what he's offering in the wedding packages. I can't say enough great things about Thai. Both him and his wife, Giao were an absolute pleasure to work with.

Thai Mai, I can't express how greatful I was to have him and his wife present at our wedding in TEXAS! He was a pleasure to work with. We flew to SJ for our E-Session and the following year we flew him and his wife to Houston for our wedding day. Our pictures turned out magnificent and breath taking Giao did my hair and make up and it was flawless. Everyone loved it and we got so much comments on them. I knew from the start when I saw his work on someone else's profile that I had to book him, and sure enough I did without hesitating and when we saw the results we were more than pleased. Worth the price and quality with a great personality!

Thanks Thai and Giao for making our day memorable and special!

One of the biggest decisions during the wedding planning process is choosing a photographer. Don't forget these are pictures that are going to last forever! After all the planning and money spent on one day, you want to make sure the photos reflect what's important. Not just pictures and moments, but also the emotion behind them. We couldn't have made a better decision than picking Thai Mai as our photographer for our November 2009 wedding.

Upon our initial meeting, Thai had a professional and friendly attitude. He also had great pictures. He has an eye for capturing a couple in their truest form. He hadn't done that many weddings when we met with him but he was quickly filling up his schedule. He was the photographer for a friend's wedding and when we saw her pictures, it sealed the deal. We booked him and Giao (his wife and 2nd photographer) and knew that we were going to have good pictures. We met once before the wedding just to talk about what we envisioned for our pictures, what was important for us and any special shots that we wanted to make sure he captured.

The day of the wedding, Thai was on time and unobtrusive and got some of fantastic shots. Though our ceremony location had some limitations on where he could shoot from, he had no issues and just worked around it. During our portraits, he would listen to us, make us laugh and really put us at ease. The hubby and I are hams and Thai just clicked away even when we were being dorky. Those dorky moments are some of our favorite shots! He really captured 'us.' At the reception, we hardly noticed he was there. He just blended in with the guests and was able to get great moments filled with emotion. We've gotten great comments about how easy he was to work with and how great he and Giao vibed with everyone. He didn't have any issues capturing a fun Latin fiesta! We not only got good pictures, we got GREAT pictures! When we saw the teasers, I got teary eyed. When we saw the slideshow, I cried. When we got all the proofs back, forget it, waterworks galore! We could not be happier with the results. We laughed, we cried, we were shocked at how much he captured and we were thrilled with his work. I would highly recommend Thai and Giao to anyone looking for a photographer. I'm already looking forward to him capturing more moments as our lives progress.

I had my e-session 7/20/09 and was very very satisfied! I traveled all the way from Austin, TX to have my photos taken by Thai Mai. Thai is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! I cannot tell you enough how great he was to work with! Actually, he and Giao did all the work and I did nothing, lol!

I originally contacted Thai back in January 2009 to inquire about services for my September 2009 wedding. I had seen photos of Thai's work through a friend and was truly amazed and mesmerized by his talent. Thai and Giao are a husband and wife duo - Thai is the photographer, Giao, is his associate photographer. She's also a hair and makeup artist and she makes custom bridal hair pieces as well! If you decide to go with Thai Mai Photography, several of the packages includes a hair and makeup trial (to prepare for the big day) with Giao, engagement photos and wedding day photos...ALL this for an EXCELLENT STEAL!

Before I contacted Thai, I already had my heart set on having him photograph my wedding, but I just wanted to make sure I could afford his services. Listen up brides - Thai and Giao are worth EVERY PENNY!!!! Your search should end here because they are AMAZING. I cannot say it enough times, really! If anything, I believe their prices are too low (good for me since I'm the paying bride, bad for them since they're the ones doing all the work!) TRUST ME, you will not be disappointed. Giao has a creative eye - she comes up with CRAZY but definitely AMAZING ideas. Thai and Giao really complement each other!!! They are so easy to talk to and work with and they listen to what you want.

I did everything backwards! I eloped on 8/8/08 but never had a reception or celebration. So my big day was September 26, 2009. Every couple needs to have engagement photos!!! So I had to fit that in somewhere too! Lol

Well my hubby and I had had a great time! We were a little nervous at first...I'm not photogenic so I was worried the photos would turn out bad. but Giao made me a beautiful bride and both Giao and Thai took great photos!!! We had so much fun..9 hours of fun to be exact. Yes, NINE hours...I'm sure Thai and Giao were exhausted but they wanted us to be happy :-) Let's just say the night ended at 10pm...

My sister who is an amateur photographer tagged along for the shoot and captured many shots of us thanks to the helpful tips she received from Thai and Giao. Please check them out and see for yourself the wonderful job that Giao did on my hair and makeup! I've already told Thai and Giao that I'm booking them for my future pregnancy photos and family portraits! No, no, no - this is not a shot gun wedding, lol! We're not planning to have kids anytime soon, but when we do, I'll be calling up Thai and Giao for sure!

Like I said, they are AN AMAZING, WONDERFUL, CREATIVE husband and wife team!!! WORTH EVERY PENNY! I can't say enough good things about them! My husband and I are 1000% satisfied with our decision :-) I'm a stickler when it comes to service - I can be really anal with regards to my expectations, but i truly cannot think of one negative thing to say about Thai and Giao. If I could give 10 stars, I would! I will gladly recommend Thai and Giao's services to all of my friends and family...in fact, I already have! I hope all you brides reading this will give them the opportunity to make your big day a special and memorable one. Don't take my word for it (actually, please take my word for it) but do see for yourself! Contact them today! Trust me, you won't be disappointed :-)

If any brides would like to contact me with questions, please feel free to do so!

I had my e-session 7/20/09 and was very very satisfied! I traveled all the way from Austin, TX to have my photos taken by Thai Mai. Thai is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! I cannot tell you enough how great he was to work with! Actually, he and Giao did all the work and I did nothing, lol!

I originally contacted Thai back in January 2009 to inquire about services for my September 2009 wedding. I had seen photos of Thai's work through a friend and was truly amazed and mesmerized by his talent. Thai and Giao are a husband and wife duo - Thai is the photographer, Giao, is his associate photographer. She's also a hair and makeup artist and she makes custom bridal hair pieces as well! If you decide to go with Thai Mai Photography, several of the packages includes a hair and makeup trial (to prepare for the big day) with Giao, engagement photos and wedding day photos...ALL this for an EXCELLENT STEAL!
