I hired Siliang as the photographer for my elopement in Carmel, California. My husband and I do not like taking photos. We often come out rigid-looking / awkward so I knew I needed to hire someone who was really talented with candid-type photos. As soon as I saw Siliang’s portfolio, I knew I had to hire him. Not only are Siliang’s photos very eye catching, but they also help tell a story and convey emotion which I think makes them so much more compelling to look at than any other wedding photographer’s photos that I’ve seen. His photos are more like pieces of art. Siliang managed to capture the most beautiful moments of our elopement. My husband and I are camera shy, but Siliang understood that and made us feel very comfortable. I was blown away by the end result. He has a true talent and a great, artistic eye. During our interactions, Siliang was also very professional and responsive. He arrived at the location on time. You must hire him as your photographer!!
We hired Siliang for our wedding a little over a month ago and could not be happier. He was incredible to work with from the moment we reached out to get an estimate and check availability through to the day of. Siliang was extremely flexible with our requests, and everyone at the wedding was impressed with how hard he and his partner worked to capture all the action. We just got the photos back (much quicker than expected!) and are delighted with the results. Siliang was an absolute joy to work with - highly, highly recommended.
My wife and I chose Siliang to shoot our wedding because we loved his style based on the work we'd seen. We recently got the photos back, and could not be happier with the results. Siliang is incredibly professional, well-prepared, and above all else, has an excellent eye for candid shots and special moments. I'd strongly recommend Siliang to anyone!
Siliang was incredible - he somehow managed to both be everywhere at once but never in the way or even noticeable. He keyed into all the best moments, and delivered a really exceptional product that told the story of the day. He doesn't focus just on the frameable shots (though he certainly got those in abundance), he focuses on documenting the true experience. Really exceptional work and we are so lucky to have found him.
Siliang was and is phenomenal, not only did his flight get pushed back due to a storm but he managed to hop on a flight that landed thebday of and he came straight to the wedding preparations for pictures. He has an incredible eye for angles, catching the right moments and effects that bring that high quality dream wedding pictures to your front screen. He is self managed at an event, the type of person you don't even have to go ask him to take photos of a certain group or capturing a time in a picture because he already beat you to it. He also had the pictures ready way ahead of the projected time. I highly recommend him for any kind of event specifically and specially if it is your wedding. Gloria and I thank you from all corners of our hearts
Siliang is a wonderful wedding photographer! Not just great for his price (which was very reasonable) but just great overall. Our wedding album truly helps us relive our day, because of his unique style and creativity. For example, at the end of our portrait sessions he spotted the smoke from our caterer's barbecue and had us pose in it, leading to some of our coolest shots.
He is responsive and flexible, and seems to enjoy technical challenges (redwoods, low light, outdoor night shots, etc). He and his assistant shooter worked tirelessly for the rest of the wedding to catch every angle. We got the portraits we needed, but we really wanted a candid style for most of our photos, and Siliang delivered--in fact, he sent several hundred beautiful photos to us just a few weeks after our wedding. I have no regrets choosing him as our photographer!
Siliang takes the most artistic and creative photos! We didn't want the same old posed and awkward photos, we wanted a more natural and artistic approach. We had high expectations and Siliang still impressed us! We have so many fun and unique engagement and wedding photos that we honestly don't know where to begin in picking the best ones. Such a good problem to have! In planning a wedding through COVID, Siliang was also our easiest vendor to work with, he was so flexible with the changes and that was really helpful for us!
We're so glad we chose Siliang to photograph our wedding. He was so easy to work with and his photos are beautiful. Siliang is very organized but also willing to be flexible and go with the flow of the day. We didn't want someone to focus on taking a billion portraits, we preferred more candid shots. Siliang does both really well. Not only are his photos gorgeous, they also captured the mood of the day. It seems like he caught every little moment, including many that we were too busy to notice.
Steven (Siliang) was absolutely a pleasure to work with. He was very accommodating and flexible to whatever we asked, no matter what. Even my mom's car had broken down, he was able to quickly adapt and help make sure she got safely to the wedding reception! The quality of photos was also very amazing and he was very professional in his delivery. I will strongly recommend him to all of my friends and family!
My wife & I were looking for a photographer that was more on the fun and creative side as opposed to one of those stuffy boring photographers. We definitely found that in Siliang as we went through his photo albums and couldn't help but laugh at some of the pictures we saw. He was extremely professional and diligent, we had no issues with him at all and he was able to accommodate all of our requests. He did such a great job in bringing out our fun and quirky side that one of the pictures he took at our wedding won an award. Siliang was a pleasure to work with and someone that we would definitely recommend to anyone!
If you do not hire this man to be your photographer, doesn't matter what event, you will surely regret it! I first found Siliang on weddingwire.com. His work is truly impressive and nothing like I have ever seen before. Then I found out one of my work colleagues had hired him for her wedding in the past so I decided to book him for mine too. Communication was really easy, and even after i had a few issues with my venue when it didn't come through, he was still able to reserve my wedding date even though I changed it twice. My husband and I got married on 10/8/2019 at SF City Hall. It was so fun and Siliang made it so memorable. I couldn't decide which photos to post. But if you're still looking for a photographer, look no further and book him ASAP
We hired Steven(Siliang) for our Indian American fusion wedding in January 2017 as well as for our engagement photos in September 2016. With all of our photos, I was genuinely surprised by how quickly he was able to complete the editing. We have absolutely loved seeing these special moments from his lens. We searched for months for a candid photographer and I'm so glad that we hired Steven and his wife.
We feel very blessed to have Siliang as our photographers! Siliang's candid and natural shots are awesome,He has a different perspective. He chill and approachable attitude made us feel very comfortable, We totally felt at ease knowing that Siliang were there to photograph our special day!So many of our guests were shocked by how unique and beautiful the photos turned out! If you are looking for a photographer, don't hesitate to choose Siliang Photography!
We needed to book a photographer for our wedding. Someone who love his job, but most importantly; great personality and someone you can count on.
I found Siliang Photography on The Knot website. After reading the reviews, I was very interested. I viewed his work on his website and Instagram. The photos were amazing and he also won some awards too. I contacted him via email right away if he would be available for our wedding date. He responded very quickly to go over the cost and plan. After the agreement, we mailed the down payment to reserve.
Throughout the whole process before the wedding, we had some questions. Siliang was very helpful and had a few recommendations to make our wedding day special, but at the same time whatever works best for us. He offered to have another photographer and without charge. Finally, I sent him a timeline to make it easier for all of us.
On our wedding day they arrived early for the hotel, ceremony, and reception. They were never late which was a huge plus! He had so much great ideas for every photo shoot to capture. We brought our french bulldog and he captured many photos of him with his cute tuxedo. Siliang made everything so simple and easy. Not just for us, but for everyone.
In about 6 weeks, our wedding photos were ready. They came out amazing and a lot more than we expected.
I highly recommend on booking Siliang Photography for your wedding day. He does not just take pictures, but creates a story that you would forever cherish.
Siliang is a professional photographer and an artist. He shoots for authenticity and originality in his work and treats it more as a creative pursuit than a job. All these mean he has a differentiated motivation being in this industry than many other photographers. He simply loves documenting special moments in life and cares deeply about his craft.
I worked with him for our wedding at SF city hall, post-wedding photoshoot, and a family reunion on a later date. He is easy and flexible to work with and pleasant to be around. He can be somewhat invisible (metaphorically) in his way of working so you can be your authentic yourself but also trust that his eyes and camera are always on you for the best captures. He can also give good recommendations and directions if you'd like.
I cannot recommend Siliang enough. He has a keen eye for true beauty, and the results are guaranteed stunning.
