Bong was great to work with. Our wedding pictures turned out amazing and we cant wait to see the album one he's done with it. Great value and great service.
My husband and I are pretty photophobic, so we were nervous about the whole idea of wedding photos. We are so glad we found Bong. He was very polite and patient and made us feel at ease about all of the day's pictures. He was very attentive to getting all of the shots we wanted. We just received our photo disc and absolutely love them! He did an amazing job.
I highly recommend Bong for your engagement and wedding pictures. Bong always responded to my emails within an hour and was extremely accommodating. I also appreciated that he was very punctual (initial meeting, engagement pictures, and the wedding.) My family and friends enjoyed their interactions with him. More importantly, he got the shots we wanted without being obtrusive! After the reception was over and he had packed up, Bong discovered that family and friends were planning to blow bubbles upon our departure. Bong unpacked everything and got great shots. We have received our pictures and I absolutely love them! (I tend to be very critical.) I certainly recommend Bong without hesitation.
I found Bong accidentally looking for a photographer a week before my wedding. I loved the price and later on I loved his job. He was in the church on time and he stayed from 3:45pm to 10:45pm. He took a lot of pictures and they look awesome. It took him about 3 weeks to send me back the CDs. My husband and I are very happy, we definitely would recommend his services to people who are on a budget.
Bong provided wonderful service at our wedding. I haven't seen the photos yet, but I'm positive Bong did a fantastic job. He was there right on time. He took any photo we requested. He even posed some of my accessories and my mom commented on what a good idea that was. He was very professional and was there as soon as I needed him. After the wedding, he would stand off to the side and snap photos, but would be right there if I needed a candid shot with a friend or family member. He helped organized our portaits very easily and helped me make sure my hair wasn't flying all over the place.
The value that Bong provides is amazing and I really recommend his services to anyone on a tight budget. I can't WAIT to see the pictures....soon I hope!
Bong did an incredible work on my daughter's wedding. He is a great photographer and the pictures are amazing. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to have a professional photographer. He captured all the details of the wedding.. and looking at his pictures you just travel in time and feel the same emotions of that day. Thanks Bong...
Mr.Lee's service was more than we could have asked for when it came to over wedding. His pricing was so much more affordable than many advertised wedding photographers but he does NOT skimp on quality or professionalism. The lighting for our wedding photos was not adequate inside the atrium so Mr. Lee took post wedding photos for us and the kids at national harbor at no additional cost. The photos including our wedding day pics turned out wonderful and the prints included with our package was more than enough. We will recommend him to all our friends and family and use him in the future for any events we might have. Thanks Bong!
I want to share how awesome it was to have Bong photograph our elopement. It was an incredibly value and he was flexible, warm, kind, funny and took many beautiful photographs. It was a very intimate, low-key, spontaneous and joyful event and he captured the feel and mood masterfully. I can't recommend him enough!
Bong is very professional and took tons of photos! They all turned out wonderfully! Our family and friends all commented on how much they loved the photographer and how great he did! Thank you very much Bong for doing such an awesome job!
Bong Lee was very professional and provided exactly what his packages offer. For a one-person shooter, he was able to capture many of the highlights, but his strongest suit is the posed photographs. He offers a more traditional wedding photography style at a great value.
Bong is fantastic. He took creative and beautiful photos and was completely flexible with us the entire day. I couldn't be happier with my photos. He was timely and polite and funny. I can't recommend him enough.
Bong was great at our wedding. During the ceremony and reception, he blended in so well. He never got in the way, and his ideas for portraits after the ceremony were fantastic. He is so professional and talented, and the price, you can't beat the price. We loved him.
We were very impressed with Bong. I received my picture CD last week and I couldn't believe how many shots he took! I received a lot of compliments from guests at the wedding, and even after the wedding, about how impressed they were with our photographer. The pictures are absolutely beautiful. Bong really worked with us and helped us choose the best options for a very tight budget. I'm so grateful that we chose Photobisou to capture our memories!
Photobisou was fantastic! We had a small ceremony and reception at home and Bong spent the entire day at our home. He took so many unique and beautiful pictures and we hardly knew he was here. We are thrilled with the pictures he took and would definitely recommend his services!
Bong was great! I was a little nervous at first but he arrived early, getting prep pictures, he was so calm which was just what I needed. During the ceremony my guests commented on how "invisible" he was not getting in front of guests, slipping in pews to get great shots, and getting everyone to smile (real smiles not those fake do I have to smiles). Bong was professional, fun, and total pleasure to work with.
Bong deserves nothing less than a perfect rating for his services! He is punctual, extremely easy to work with, very professional and experienced with these types of events. His services are very reasonably priced for what you get!!! We recently got our photos from our wedding back from Bong and we are unable to choose which ones we would like to have printed as per our package since they are all excellent! Bong was on point that day! He was able to capture the essence of our day. As the bride, I was wondering how everything was going to turn out since on your wedding day you wish that everything would be perfect. I was unsure, but after looking at the images that Bong was able to capture, I saw that everyone had a great time! When we saw those pictures, we just smiled!!! Bong you are great...thank you very much for working with us!! You there, potential client reading this review...if you are needing a photographer for your wedding, or any other occasion, do not hesitate...get in contact with Bong Lee! You will be very pleased with his service and your pictures!
Mr. Lee is a great photographer and he really does try to get as many of the best shots that he can. He is really patient and unobtrusive. Ive looked around alot before I found him for our photographer, and for the work that he does with the costs, you cant really beat it.
Bong was a pleasure to work with! He's super friendly and very professional. I was looking for an affordable photographer and majority of the photographers I searched for were $2,000+. I came along Bong's website and was amazed at his package prices. I only paid $550 and he stayed with us from 11:30 am to 9:00 pm. He's very flexible and nice. Everything ran smoothly on our wedding day. The wedding photos were sent to me within a couple weeks. His photos are simple yet beautiful! I couldn't have asked for a better photographer. Bong was extremely responsive to emails (he responded practically a couple minutes later each time). I was definitely impressed and I highly recommend him! I can't thank him enough for his service!
If you are looking for a cheap photographer with quick turn around who will give you a ton of pictures then Bong is your guy. If you are looking for someone who will capture important moments and create beautiful photographs you can display in your home...keep looking!
We went with Bong because of his price, reviews, and we actually loved the photos in his portfolio during his presentation...we were greatly dissapointed. While he is friendly and on time he seems to lack something required to be a wedding photographer. He seemed frazzled our entire wedding day and could really use an assistance's help. He suggested only a few poses and after getting our cds of pictures it was clear that was because he didn't know how to pose bridal parties or large groups. We were too excited with too much going on our wedding day to realize it, but he also didn't take the time to have a mini photo shoot of just us...you only get married once (hopefully), and I don't have a single photo, traditional and posed of my husband and I to frame. A professional would have pulled us aside at a calm point to ensure that we had photos of just the two of us...we got married on the water - sunset would have been a perfect time for this.
At the reception he would take the same photo another person was taking so I have about 50 pictures of groups looking at someone else's camera...seems like an incredible waste of time. I was highly dissapointed in the work product we received from Bong. In retrospect I wish I would have paid a little more and got a more professional and artistic photographer. Perhaps than I'd have frameable photographs instead of "candids" in which everyone is looking at their friend who put the group together and is taking the picture. Currently I'm having difficulty picking enough photos that I even like ( I don't love ANY) to fufill the print package!
Hi Bong. Thanks for your response to my review. Though I think a personal email would have been a better response. I also do not like my full name being posted on things - this includes the gallery on your site and the email you posted in your review (so if you could edit your review to remove my last name it would be greatly appreciated). I also would prefer if my photos weren't directly linked to wedding wire. I understand that I noted that overall I like a more photojournalistic style, but that doesn't mean you don't take time to have posed pictures with the bride and groom(on our first meeting I said I wanted posed pictures as well). I wanted a mix of posed and candid and expressed that in person. As I knew you tended more toward traditional I wanted to make sure you were comfortable with photojournalistic as well, since those were not included in your presentation...thus the context of my email (that you posted on weddingwire) before securing you as our photographer. I also wanted to ensure there would be minimal cheesy poses (ie Charlie's Angels) since those seem to be your go to in past weddings.
Perhaps you can reference this much later email from me(May 2010):
Our list of "formal portraits" is as follows:
1. Pic of us with Les' family - mom, dad, brit and bob
2. Pic of us with my family - mom, dad, tina and matt
3. Pic of us with Les nana - will have to take place at the reception.
4. Pic of us with my gparents
5. Pic of both families and us as larger group
6. Bridal Party Shots - fun pictures playing some sort of game on the beach and a few normal posed shots
7. Boys shots
8. Girls shots - on the boardwalk earlier in the day -
9. Shots of us
So I ask you where are our formal shot of us - #9. Not to mention the shots of the bridal party and family were so poorly posed that you can't see everyone. As a professional photographer I would think you would know better posing techniques etc to fit a larger group as opposed to straight across so you can't see anyone's faces clearly. That's just one reason on my review that I suggest that you may do better with an assistant. I will say that the shots of the girls on the boardwalk are what I requested. I also liked the getting ready photos. All other portraits I am very dissapointed in. I also think that more so than miscommunicating you seemed frazzled throughout the day - something pointed out to me by many in the bridal party and some guests.
Thank you for your offer of the formal portrait session. I will talk to Les, however you can't recreate your wedding day.

HERE IS THE LINK TO VIEW BARB'S WEDDING PHOTOS AT THE OCEAN CITY FOR WHOM LIKE TO REVIEW;
Package: $550 / 1 full day coverage + 1 prints of 8" x 10" + 100 prints of 4" x 6"
Traveling cost from Alexandria, Virginia: $125
I think, it was miscommunication between me and Barb.
I understood, Barbara liked more photojournalistic photos and candid shots than posing photos and formal portraits because that was she required. I am really sorry about the result that we misunderstood each other. If you would like to have posing photos and some formal portrait photos, I would like to offer you 2 hours free posing photos and formal portrait session.
Please see the email below from you on Jan 09, 2010 regarding your wedding photography style you liked.

Hi Bong. It was great to meet with you last weekend, and we were very impressed by your work. We'll be mailing the contract and deposit on Monday. I just have one question, as far as the portrait or more traditional pictures would you be willing to go a little outside of the box? We are a more casual than traditional couple (but also not huge fans of the jumping or charlie's angels poses). We like the idea of fun playful; pictures on the beach...like the bridal party playing a game of beach volleyball or football (Les is a huge sports guy). I really want my pictures with the bridesmaids to be on the boardwalk...I love the idea of a shot of the girls lined up playing skeeball. Please let me know if these would be shots you'd be interested in/willing to take. Both are wedding and reception are fairly unconventional...since we're not doing cake cutting or boquet tossing/garter we won't need pictures of those, but would prefer a more photojournalistic style. Please let me know what you think of all this. Look forward to hearing from you!
*Please contact me if anyone like to hear from me any other details.
Mr. Lee was very professional, responsive and flexible. I would recommend him highly to all brides. He made it very easy to trust him and he completed phenomenal work. His value far exceeds his cost and he offers many packages that can suit any budget.
If you want quality & outstanding value, Mr. Lee with Photobisou is the way to go!
Wonderful person and photographer!! We were so impressed with and grateful for the memories that Bong captured on our special day. We recommend him without reservations! His style is fun, imaginative, and unobtrusive. I was surprised with some of the photos because I did not remember him being there, but he definitely was EVERYWHERE! You will not be disappointed... everyone keeps asking where we found such a wonderful photographer. Thank you Bong!
Bong was really great. We chose him because he was affordable, but he was actually really fun to work with on our wedding day, and we now have hundreds of photos to look back to years from now. He got back to us with the edited photos faster than we anticipated, and the turnaround time once we picked out the photos we wanted as prints was also incredibly fast. The value of his photo package really can't be beat - I highly recommend him for a couple on a smaller budget.
Bong was awesome! I was a girl on a budget, and while photographs were important to me, I could not spend much over $700 for a photographer. I found PhotoBisou on Wedding Wire, and he had a package for all day coverage plus prints for $550. I met with him, and he agreed to drop the prints from the package and only charge me $500. That was just right for my budget! The pictures on his site were pretty good, especially for the price range, and he seemed really nice when I met with him, so I decided to go with him.
Bong showed up at the hotel exactly on time even though I was running a little late. He immediately started taking shots, and he didn’t stop until I told him that he could go home. Yet, he was never in the way of me or my guests. Sometimes (especially during the getting ready stage) he suggested certain poses, but it was never intrusive. Plus, he had no problem with other people taking pictures while he was doing the formals. Wonderful!
About a week and a half after the wedding, I got two disks in the mail that included all 1000 or so shots. I have the rights to all of them! There were some really, really good photos in the group, and I’m confident that I can make photobooks or whatever I want from them!
I definitely recommend Bong and PhotoBisou. He was wonderful!
Bong was a great asset to our wedding coordination. He was responsive and helpful. We are grateful that we selected his photography business! He was reasonable and provided great quality.
Mr. Lee did an amazing job with our wedding pictures. I am truly impressed with his professionalism and attention to detail. Great quality of work. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks!
I would recommend this company for your wedding pictures as well as your engagement photos. Mr. Lee is very nice, understanding, patient, caring and most of all professional. He calls if and when he is late, he research the area ahead of time. The day of your wedding he knows all of the good spots around your venue to take photos. He is there when he say he going to be there, and he really doesn't leave untiil you say that he can go. He left when I left, he is absolutely wonderful.
My husband and I would definitely recommend Mr. Lee for wedding photography. He was extrememly flexible and made us so excited for the big day with his great attitude. He was able to go with the flow and capture any moment we wanted without being invasive at all.
I could not be happier with my wedding photographer! Bong Lee was prepared and took leadership in organizing wedding pictures, but he was also incredibly un-invasive. My wedding pictures are beautiful and I can't believe how fair and reasonable the cost was for the entire package. I would recommend photobisou to everyone.
We are so happy with our wedding pictures! We shopped around for a long time to find a great photographer that worked within our budget. We were fortunate to find Photobisou. Anyone would think we paid many times more than what we actually paid. We had complete coverage, artistic, photojournalistic, and portrait photographs. Mr. Lee is a professional and knows his craft well: his portfolio speaks for itself. We highly recommend Photobisou.

Wonderful photographer. Amazing service, Extremely professional and great to work with!
Bong was very professional and patient with all my friends and family members. Always answered my calls and even sent an email, so I was always in the loop. He scheduled our picture timing to accommodate everyone and the photos turned out gorgeous. On top of that I got 200 studio prints and a disc of over 600 photos WOW. I couldn't ask for a better photographer and for the price, i couldn't find better. Thanks Bong, you made my day look so PICTURE PERFECT.
Quickly took the formal pictures so we could enjoy our wedding! Lee took pictures all night and they came out beautifully. Very crisp shots. Nice package and some extras too! I will certainly use Photobisou again! Thanks Lee!
It was great working with you, your strong attention to detail truly enabled you to capture all of the clients vision into photos they will be able to enjoy forever! Looking forward to working with you in the future!!!
I recently had the pleasure of working with Bong of Photo Bisou at a wedding in columbia, Md.
I was very impressed at the time with details, the photographers wonderful disposition
He was very accomodating ...I highly recommend having Photo Bisou for your wedding photographer!
The website speaks for itself in the results of several couples albums. I am looking forward to working with him again on future weddings!
