We were absolutely blown away by the entire experience. Not only are the photos stunning, but Xiaoqi was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. She is personable, professional, and extremely easy to communicate with. I was nervous about being awkward in front of the camera, but Xiaoqi’s friendly personality put us right at ease and you can definitely tell how relaxed we are in the pictures, they turned out great!

It was immediately obvious she was our photographer. My Wife and I cannot say enough good things about Xiaoqi’s professionalism, her technical ability and just overall how cool of a person she is.

She always took that extra step to make our day very special. I can’t thank her enough for documenting what will last forever in our hearts.

It was like having a good friend taking your photos. Normally I don’t see myself as being photogenic but she made me feel very comfortable and beautiful in front of the camera. She captured me and my husband in moments we were not even aware of but made for treasured and loving memories. People cannot stop complimenting our photos and how full of life they are. I cannot say enough great things about my experience working with her nor can I thank her enough for being invested in our story and capturing our happiest moment so gorgeously.

Xiaoqi is very easy going and gives off a laid back vibe, relaxing any tension and indecisiveness that comes with it.
We hired her because we wanted to be able to look back at our photos and relive the big moments but also take a peek at some of those subtle but meaningful moments that will inevitably be missed by the busy bride and groom. Xiaoqi has a knack and passion for capturing both types of moments. In our case, both Bride and Groom could not be happier about our choice in photographer. SPOILER ALERT: You will have fun working with Xiaoqi. She takes her work seriously, but she doesn't take herself too seriously. In our case, both Bride and Groom could not be happier about our choice in photographer.

Xiaoqi captured some of my favorite photos ever of my hubby and I. We had a couples session with her and had so much fun together! She had my hubby smiling - real smiles, not the fake “do I have to” kind of smiles. Not to mention she captured my favorite portrait of myself ever! She’ll make any self conscious girl feel like a queen. We both love how the photos came out and highly recommend her!
