Cynthia & Quincy

My fiance and I purchased an in-studio pre-wedding photography package with E-Vogue and the experience exceeded our expectations. Our package came with in-studio hair and makeup for myself, the ability to borrow dresses and tuxes from the studio with a total of 3-4 outfit changes, outdoor + indoor shots, digital files, and printed products. I highly recommend E-Vogue for anyone’s photography needs based on the professionalism and quality of work that was demonstrated by staff at the studio. Here is a summary of my experience: I arrived at the E-Vogue studio with my fiance around 10am and my hair and makeup done by Sharon. Sharon is an amazing makeup artist who is able to highlight your unique features. She was also creative when she picked out accessories and hairstyles. My hair and makeup was completed in about 1.5 hours. Next, our photographer, Kong, brought us to the back studio and began directing us on how to pose. He made us laugh and feel comfortable during the entire session. Also, he was able to give clear instructions which was important because my fiance is not used to taking photos. It was apparent that he payed attention to every small detail and took time to adjust us (tilting head slightly, smiling more or less) to ensure that the photos turned out as best as possible. During our lunch break, Kong and Sharon again showed their concern for clients and experience with taking photos when he recommended that my fiance buy finger foods so it would be easier for me to eat, without ruining my hair/makeup and attire. After 2 more outfit changes in studio with different hairstyles and outfit changes, we left the studio for outdoor shoots. Again, Kong was fully prepared for the shoot and had already planned the timing of the session well so the sun would not be directly on us. He also came fully prepared with a bag of bobby pins, props, and everything needed in case there were any wardrobe mishaps. The entire session lasted about 6-8 hours. The final product confirmed Kong and Sharon’s abilities as photographer and makeup artist. We loved the way the photos turned out and have received unending compliments from family and friends. Overall, I am glad we booked our photography session with E-Vogue and felt the session was reasonably priced. Photos also came back to us quickly. I recommend all engaged couples schedule a pre-wedding session to get a trial run for wedding day pictures. My fiance and I also definitely plan on returning for anniversary photos or even family Cynthia & Quincy

It was a great experience to work with E-Vogue for my maternity pictures. Previous to the photo shoot we had good communication about the ideal make- up and pictures styles I wanted. On the date of photo shoot the stylist - Sharon successfully created the look I wanted. She also found me 2 gorgeous dresses for the photo shoot. The photographer - Kong made us feel very comfortable during an uncomfortable time. We asked for some intimate couple pictures. We are very happy with the result and glad that we can totally trust Kong for his professionalism. He had some great ideas during the shoot that really helped with the finished product. Kayla and Keith Westfall

I can honestly say that Kong was the most amazing vendor we had on our wedding day. From the time he showed up to the salon to the last picture he took of our exit through sparklers he captured our wedding day perfectly. I litereally get to re-live the day when I go through the photos. Kong has an eye for what he knows will photogragh well but at the same time he gets your opininon without being invasive. My entire wedding party loved the way he interacted with us before the wedding by getting us hyped for some of the pictures. He really went above and beyond especially when he helped my bridesmaids finish getting ready when time was running out. For all of these reasons and more I would reccomend him to any bride if they want amazing photographs that they will cheerish forever as well as a caring photographer who does more than just take the pictures. My husband and I will be forever thankful for Kong. Matt & Katie

Professionalism and experience are hard to come by especially during a once in a lifetime event such as our wedding. Living in NY and planning a Houston wedding was difficult. We were lucky to find Kong who was so accommodating of our busy schedule. His experience with our wedding traditions helped guide us, and his friendly attitude and jokes kept us laughing through the stress. He has a unique eye for photography and his vision shows through beautifully in the pictures. Thank you for helping us relive our wedding day each time we look at your photos. Linda & Cheng

I used Kong's photography services for my wedding on July 12, 2008. I was very pleased with their non invasive way of taking photos during the ceremony and reception. Sometimes I would forget that they were even there. When I received the photos I was impressed with the angles and lighting. They really brought out the beauty of the event and caught little details that I had missed because, being the bride, I was too busy to notice until I looked at the photos.Melanie -

"Kong was such a pleasure to have around on our wedding day! We were more than pleased with the pictures and the results! His work is out of this world, and he definitely helped make our special day a memorable one! Thanks Kong for all of your hard work!! Keep up the great work! We would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable, and great photographer to capture their special moment!" - The Pomerantz'Aspin & Matt

My fiancée (now wife) had a friend recommend Kong who spoke very highly of his work. We meet with Kong, discussed our wedding location and option places to shoot our photos. Kong was very acute to our desired plans and gave excellent ideas for us to work with. After our first meeting we Paola and I knew we had the right person working with us, which made the decision really easy!Paola and I got married in Herman Park, which Kong was very familiar with and had many great locations for our photos picked out. During the shooting, Kong was extremely professional with an incredible eye for the “perfect shot”. As we were shooting, we could tell that these were going to be quality shots and would probably want to keep all of them.The truly best part about working with Kong would be his humor. Kong’s warm, friendly nature with is out going personality really highlighted our experience. We had such a good time taking the photos, that we even considered bringing him down to Cancun with us for our celebration!!He and his team are a really good and I highly recommend them. ~Steve & Paola~

My spouse and I are very particular couple and searched several photography vendors before we were referred to E-Vogue Photo by a coworker to take our Wedding Engagement pictures. Prior to selecting a photo shoot, Mr. Kong arranged a consultation with him, to select the location of the photo shoot and to review our attire selections. In the consultation he was extremely accommodating to our ideas and provided several additional suggestions. The day of the photo shoot we were impressed by his professionalism, patience and guidance in creating the optimal scenery and natural posses.The end results were fantastic pictures that even the most particular bride would be pleased with. Mr. Kong has an eye for photography, is skilled at editing photos and designing professional grade albums.We highly recommend E-Vouge Photo for your next event or photo shoot.Hellen Xicay & Israel Estrada -Houston Article

My experience at E-Vogue Photo was absolutely wonderful. Sharon made me feel like a model and took great care of me doing all my hair, makeup, and wardrobe. She also continuously was there to make me feel more comfortable in a new unfamiliar place so that I would not be nervous while taking the pictures. Kong did a marvelous job on teaching me how to pose and smile for the pictures. He also did a great job in putting together my pictures into an album with beautiful accents in the backgrounds. Sharon and Kong also took the time to make a swing especially for me to sit and stand on for my angel wardrobe. I believe with every customer, they put a lot of focus to make each one feel uniquely special. It was definitely an experience that I am honored to be part of. Thank you E-Vogue!Vivian & Ken

"I am absolutely in love with the picture Kong took for us. He put a smile on my husband, who’s not in favor of pictures, and made the shooting day a pleasure. Kong and Sharon had many unique ideas and suggestion. The outcome was not a typical studio pictures but one of a kind. Sharon’s makeup and hair design is customized to fit my personality and the image of my wedding album. Every time I visit the shop, Sharon is searching for beautiful dresses to add to her collection. I wanted natural looks, unique touches and true moments to be captured in the photos, and that’s exactly what I got. The photos came out beyond my expectation.Without a doubt, E-Vogue will be my first choice for photos, and I’d recommend Kong and Sharon to anyone! Thank you so much for giving us a beautiful memory!"Denny & Chikako

"Kong...if I could describe him in one word it would be...superb. He is a gentleman that has an absolute mastery of eloquence and charm. His ability to get the best out of my wife and myself in our pictures combined with his natural creativity created some incredible and indelible pictures. I am utterly amazed and honored that he was our photographer. Truly, the best part of our wedding would have to be Kong. Thank you so much for everything. You really helped to make this special time in our lives so much more pleasant when all the pressures of perfection were happening at once!" ~Frank & Jellyn Gammon

My fiance and I were unsure about taking engagement photos after we got engaged. The reason being that we don’t feel the most comfortable posing for photographers, but we changed our minds when Kong was recommended by my mom who has known him for quite some time and promised that he’ll be able to make this a pleasant experience. She was totally right! When we met up with Kong on the photo shoot day, we instantly felt really comfortable. He has a great sense of humor and we connected immediately. We think being able to connect with your photographer is so important because if we can relax and have fun then it shows in the pictures.We started early in the morning and it was extremely cold as it was in December. However, if you look at our pictures, you can barely tell it was taken in the winter. Kong was really great at directing us on how to pose and made us laugh almost the entire time, so our expressions looked so natural and happy! We went to a variety of spots in about 3-4 hours of time so it looked like we spent a whole day taking photos. We liked how efficient and smoothly things went. Without spending too much time with us, he totally got our style and chose some really great back-drops for our shots.When we got our pictures back we were surprised how well they turned out. They were beyond our expectations. We were very pleased with the pictures and had a great time working with Kong. We couldn’t have had a better experience working with a photographer. Kong is very talented and personable. He definitely is the kind of photographer who will go the extra mile to make you look beautiful in your pictures. We feel very lucky to have worked with him and would recommend him to our friends!-Monique

"I was really nervous about my photo shoot, but Kong quickly put me at ease. He's professional and an exceptional photographer, but he also makes the session really fun. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants photography for any occasion." Marian

I can't say enough great things about Kong and their work. If you want photographs that are artistic, photojournalistic and sincere then this company is just right for you! Aside from selecting my husband, Kong was hands down the best choice we made for our wedding day. As many may know, planning a wedding can be overwhelming but choosing Kong gave me one less thing to worry about. We were sold on the company after seeing his photos at our initial meeting and became more and more impressed as we got to know the photographer. He has a style that captures the emotions of his subjects and is able to convey a mood through the lighting that is spot on. On the day of our wedding, they were very punctual and professional. They captured the essence of our wedding, including all the little details that couples spend so much time deciding on. My family and I viewed the images for the first time and we were absolutely speechless! I couldn?t be more pleased with the final result. My friends who are already married are so jealous of our pictures and even my single friends can't wait to plan their big day in the future using Kong.... thank you.!!Christina & Lesile

Dear Kong.....Thank you for your wonderful service in our Wedding date. We couldn't ask for more. It was most importation day of our life. The picture and Video was beautiful. thanks.....Andy & Connie

"Working with Kong really helped my portfolio. He was professional and made me feel comfortable. The pictures turned out great! I can't wait to shoot with him again." Vanessa Nguyen - Model

Kong, We would like to thank you for providing us with your warm and friendly service of taking our pictures for us at both of our wedding ceremonies and reception. We wouldn't have been as comfortable with any other photographer as we were with you. Our pictures turned out GREAT!! Our family definitely enjoyed having you around and they felt really comfortable. You really know how to go out of your way to make all of us feel at ease on such an important day! Thank you so much,Bilmar and Phine Benzon

"We planned most of the wedding ourselves, and settled on Kong after an exhaustive search of Houston photographers and studios. Kong was helpful and upbeat from the very first meeting. His experience, cross-cultural sensitivity, and friendly personality really helped smoothing out the wedding day experience for both of our families (who arrived from abroad). He even helped fix a wedding gown malfunction right on the spot! Sharon, for her part, contributed an impressive hair and makeup arrangement for my wife and satisfied her high standard.Kong & Sharon not only captured many precious moments for our Big Day, but helped created some as well. They delivered great value. We would heartily recommend them to our friends, and look forward to use their services sometime in the future."Best wishes,Miles & Chi

Kong, We want to thank you so much for being there on our wedding day. With everything that goes on in planning a wedding, it was nice that the photography went so smoothly. You and your team were excellent, and did an amazing job of capturing every aspect of the day. It was nice to have you there for the make-up and for all the preparation taking place during the day. Your team was excellent in capturing a wide variety of shots of the event, and everyone present at the wedding and reception. We are both so happy with the number of pictures taken, the excellent quality and diverse options available for our album. The time you spent with us going over the pictures and editing the made the album exceed our expectations. Your efforts, dedication and professionalism made for a great experience made it a pleasure having you share this special occasion with us. Thank you so much. We would recommend you to anyone that is looking for photography services. Jessica and Joseph

We decided to work with Kong because of his great personality. After discussing our wedding package with him and seeing how we were able to laugh and make jokes during the process, I felt Kong was our man. We surprisingly met with a professional that made our first meeting felt as though we’ve just made a friend. Kong and Sharon’s sense of humor made this stressful part of the wedding planning so much fun and easy. To top everything off, their work is wonderful! The album Kong has designed for us is very sweet and romantic. I can’t stop flipping through the pages! The makeup and beauty session Sharon gave me made me feel gorgeous! We love them dearly and feel absolutely lucky to have found them to help us collect our memories. Thank you Kong and Sharon!Bich and Dung

We have know Kong for many years and have always love his work! Thank you, Kong, for making the wedding a great success! As the sister of the bride and maid of honor, I was given the honor of coordinating my sister, Carol's wedding. Kong was wonderful to work with throughout the planning process and on the day of the wedding. Our family really appreciated his professionalism to make the wedding very memorable and enjoyable. Kong made me feel at ease and made the whole planning process very enjoyable. His knowledge of wedding photography has guide me through the planning process as what will work best and at the same time adding all the special touches that's very much representing of Carol's personality. He created a fun atmosphere during the photo shoot and through out the event to make everyone at ease. We were very impressed with the efficiency on receiving the photo proofs and the moments that he captures. As part of the wedding party there were moments that we weren't able to be present and thanks to Kong's attention to detail we are able to enjoy each memorable moment for many years to come. Thank You,Lucy Liu

Dear Kong, we have to say you are the top professional photographer that we have ever seen! Your dedication to art work impresses us a lot. Your magnificent work performance has been praised by all of my coworkers, friends and families even the people overseas so that we are always proud to say that you are the best photographer in town!! Except for your responsibility to every job, you are also very thoughtful to serve each customer. Recalling my engagement-photos shooting day, that was in the chilly February and a windy day, my husband was clumsily holding my hands to make sure I would not fall down by dragging along my long and ruffled wedding white gown. When I turned around to look at you, besides of your carrying the heavy cameras and equipments, you were even holding my purse, my makeup bag and bouquet accessories, which made me feeling more easily and relaxed to concentrate on my shooting by worrying nothing… Once again, we cannot accomplish the wonderful wedding without you...Joanna Xie: Project Director, US-China Relations FoundationPaul Pham: X-ray department, Memorial Hermann Outpatient Clinic at Sugar Creek
