Hi Mike,
I just wanted to reach out and say thank you so so much for the gorgeous photos from our Half Moon Bay
Wedding you took last Friday.. they are utterly amazing. So elegant, sophisticated, modern, and fun.
You truly depicted the love we felt that day. Our wedding day is described as "absolute perfection"
between me and my new husband. We can't say it enough!

Also, the 4-day turnaround and hand-delivery to our home mailbox was the "cherry on top" to making
sure we received our beautiful photos. By including ALL of our pictures, instead of the stated 72 digital
photos we were promised in our agreement, you truly went above and beyond when it comes to true
customer service and great business.

Again, thank you so much and we really appreciate all that you did for our special day! We are so glad
you were the one to take our photos. We will definitely recommend you for our friends and family!! :)

Hi Michael, Thank you very much for being a part of our special day at Hastings House and taking
photos of us and our family and friends. I had already assigned a friend to follow you around with an
umbrella to keep your equipment dry in case of rain but thankfully we were fortunate enough to not
have to worry about that. We truly appreciate everything you,Terry, Linda, Richard did for us on our
wedding day.
Sincerely, Cindee and Jared Barnes

Michael Wong was our wedding photographer for my son and daughter-in-law on August 28th.  The wedding was at Sam's Chowder House.  

He took pre-wedding photos, and photos of the ceremony and party.  The result was almost 300 really wonderful photos.  He was fun to work

with and did a beautiful job in telling the story of this lovely day.- Janet K.

Dear Michael Wong, Martin and I wish to thank you sincerely for the outstanding job you've done,
your generosity & your professionalism. Our families and friends had nothing but praise for your work.
These precious moments of our lives, captured through your lense, will be cherished for many years
to come. Thank you for taking part in the celebration of our marriage. Please accept our compliments.
We are enclosing a CD as a souvenir. We hope you'll enjoy it. Just as photos can serve as a walk
through Memory Lane, we hope that the music we've selected will do the same.
Many Blessings,
Sincerely, Minh-Chan & Martin.

Dear Mike,The photos arrived yesterday and we're just LOVING them! We've shared them with my
parents and with Katie and Joe, who are probably right now sharing them with Joe's parents and
grandparents in Tahoe. You did a spectacular job! Everyone is just amazed with the way you managed
to move all over the place to capture such great shots. You put everyone at ease, proven by all the

families. Thank you so much for all you did to make the wedding and reception truly special.
