I found Thao while actually searching for a wedding venue!! I live in West LA, but when my now-husband and I were in search of a wedding venue, we were initially seriously thinking about a location in Orange County, to have the wedding closer to his family. While I was searching through wedding blogs, I kept seeing Thao Vu's beautiful photography, again and again, and her crisp whimsical images kept drawing me back to her website.

We ended up booking a venue location in Santa Monica, and when we met with Thao, she was such a lovely person!!! She has a kind and gentle playful spirit!! Such a professional!

We had both our engagement and wedding photos done by Thao Vu Photography and Thao completely blew us away!!! She has such an amazing talent for capturing the details, framing photo images and translating the actual feeling of weddings into her pictures. Thao and her partner in crime Duy did an amazing job and I will treasure these pictures forever!

Hiring Thao Vu photography was the best decision ever, and I would recommend them to other brides!!
THANK YOU THAO AND DUY!!!! :) :)

What can I say about Thao and Duy? They are the best as it comes. First, I have to tell you that I come from a family of photographers so I have a very critical eye. Choosing a phtographer that my parents would agree to was a challenge! But when I saw Thao's work through her blogs and website, I knew she would be a perfect match for my wedding, her sense of style and creativity is second to none. Once the pictures came out, my father who is a photographer for over 30 years even commented that Thao has mastered the art of photography. My images were just like those of bridal magazines, I get nothing but compliments each time people see them. They are beautiful and priceless. In addition Thao and Duy represent the industry at its epitome. Their professionalism should be a model for others. Thank you Thao and Duy for the nostalgia your images create for us.

I'm never very good at reviewing...well anything. Thao was just exceptional so it wouldn't be right not to.

Thao and Duy are very professional and took great care to meet my needs. They were extremely helpful and considerate. They were great with both candid and posed shots. My Wife and I were very happy with the results. I really thought that the photos were going to be a disaster because we decided to go DIY and low cost but I never should have had any doubt, Thao made everything look magical.

Thao and Duy did a great job for us. We had a four day wedding and they were there each day. The photos came out great. I initially did not want to do an engagement session because I could not find the right photographer. After I saw Thao's photos, I booked her for an engagement session and then for the four day wedding. Since then, Thao has also covered my sister's graduation party and will probably cover our milestone events in the future. The photos are amazing and will truly last us for a life time.

Thao and Duy made an awesome team. They were very professional, efficient and talented at what they do. They'd do whatever it takes to get that perfect shot. We are especially pleased with how fast they gave us back our pictures. And the photos were gorgeous! We've heard of how long couples had to wait for their wedding photos, but not us. We'd highly recommend them for your wedding photographers. You won't be disappointed!

Thao was my photographer for my wedding on November 10th, 2007 and my Tiffany’s themed bridal shower. Thao business etiquette is very professional and reassuring. Her contract is detailed and states clearly when and what you are expecting her to deliver.
Thao and her second photographer Duy were a blast to have at our wedding. We thoroughly enjoyed their presence on our wedding day.
If you’re a bride like me who can’t wait to see your photos Thao is your best choice. On the day of my bridal shower; after I had just gotten home and put all of my gifts away; my coordinator called me and says: “Thao posted the pictures on her website, go check it out!” Sure enough there were all the pictures from my bridal shower just hours ago.
Thao is fast, professional and takes some really amazing shots.
