your most precious moments
Yang Lu is a San Francisco Bay Area based photographer, committed to capturing couples in their most precious moments and milestones.
“Natural colors, genuine emotions” is the motto for my work and my style. I believe that art should stand the test of time, and that art should stir up emotions — whether it’s joy, warmth, passion, or affection. I want you to live in the moment on your big day, so that when you open up your album ten years later, you can relive the laughter, the tears, the joy…

Yang is a gem! My fiance and I had never taken professional photos before, and he did an amazing job guiding and helping us feel at ease in front of the camera for our engagement photos. Yang made sure we would be captured at our best – before starting the shoot, he even gave us tips on how to pose 🙂 He is also very responsive, reliable, and attentive to his clients’ needs. We’re so happy with how beautiful our photos came out and can’t recommend him enough!

Frequently Asked Questions
Natural, crisp, bold, and sharp are a few words that describe my work and my style. I pride myself in creating art that can stand the test of time and popular trends that may fade with time. When I work with you, my priority is to make sure you feel at ease in front of the camera because that is how beautiful photos and emotions are captured. How do I do it? Well, my photoshoots are more “play” than pose.
Yes! I recommend having two photographers for large weddings in order to capture moments that you may not be able to witness due to the hecticness of the day. For example, I could be photographing the portraits while my second shooter captures the guests. You will also receive more photos as a result of having 2x the number of cameras! I also do ALL of the editing, so the look and feel of the final products are consistent.
My turnaround time is quicker than most photographers. The reason is, I only limit myself to roughly 20 weddings a year. Photography is my passion, and I want to keep that fire burning strong by not overwhelming myself with this work. The results are a quicker turnaround time and much more intimate relationships with each of my clients.
Absolutely YES. Insurance is a must have in this profession because you can never know what can go wrong. I have insurance that can protect my gear as well as any mishaps that can happen at the venue. I can produce a certificate of insurance if the venue requires it.
By committing to your wedding day in advance, I am also declining all other requests for service on that same day. The retainer is to ensure I am available solely for you on the big day!
In my several years of doing this, I have never gotten sick to the point where I could not cover a wedding I booked. Knock on wood! In the extremely unlikely event that this does happen, I have a vast network of photographers who share a similar style that I can reach out to for coverage. I will still do the editing.
No. RAW files are large data files that are unprocessed and unrefined. It would be similar to a chef giving you the ingredients for a meal that you purchased at a fine dining restaurant. We only give out final products that represent our brand and our work.
Our packages are created in such a way that meet most common wedding ceremonies. If you need something that requires tweaking of the packages, you can contact us directly to chat about that. One of the reasons why couples love working with us is we are very flexible. We are here to help!
