I was so stressed about looking for a photographer for my wedding and then a friend of mine recommended Elvis!!! He's definitely one of a kind! He is very generous and he makes you look so natural in the pictures! He always catches the most nature moment of you! My husband and I got married this July, he definitely put a lot of efforts for our wedding and pre-wedding pictures! He is open to discuss for what you need and what styles you like! Of course every photographer have their own way for photo shooting you should definitely check out Elvis's page! You will love him! More...

We just received our pictures at our wedding. They are amazing. Elvis and his business partner Percy captured every precious moment of that day especially during our ceremony despite the fact that it rained so hard on that day. I highly recommend the two artists who will not let you down at any of your event. More...

If you are still struggling to find a great photographer for your wedding, then you should stop searching and talk with Elvis. Elvis is the photographer for my wedding, and his bespoke photograph service is undoubtedly top-notched. My wife is definitely a hard-to-please type with a high bar of sensibility of beauty. Nevertheless, she is still surprised by Elvis's consummate artistry. Besides photo-shooting, his photograph skill also impresses me. He can literally remove anything unpleasant from your face and skin, which guarantees a happy smile on your face. I see the huge potential in him to become a professional photographer! I highly recommend Elvis's service and try it when it is still in a decent price! More...

I was very glad that Elvis was available to take my wedding pictures. I chose him at the beginning because of his reputation in Ann Arbor area and his rate. The more I communicated and worked with him, the more I found out that he was very patient and nice, he tried to accommodate my schedule, he was very easy going with any particular photograph requests we may have had, he enjoyed his work, and he was very prompt with communicating with us. The whole family had so much fun working with him. I am totally going to have him again for family pictures in the future. More...

Elvis was the photographer for our wedding. He was simply incredible. The photos turned out amazing; he helped us come up with creative group shots but also captured perfect candid shots. He had a meeting with us prior to the event to get the itinerary for the day. He was on time, professional, and was super friendly to our family and all the guests. The best part was the price was a steal, however, you would never know by looking at the photos. Recommend him in a heart beat! More...

There really are not enough good things to say about Elvis. He is absolutely amazing to work with and his photography is unbeatable.

We had our first shoot with Elvis back in May when our baby girl was about 6 months old. We wanted to celebrate the monumental moment of being parents for half year with a family photo shoot and we were beyond thrilled with the outcome.

Three month later in August, we had a banquet in Shanghai for our ten years anniversary and our baby girl's ten months birthday. Elvis made certain that everything we wanted photographed became a reality.

We had another family shoot with Elvis at our daughter's one year old birthday. It was very cold in Ann Arbor on that day so we wanted to go inside for a long break as the baby was getting chilly. Elvis was very understanding and patient about that, and he even played with her for a while.

The best thing we love about Elvis that he is really good at capturing the casual yet best moments. He made everyone feel very relaxed and comfortable, all we had to do is be ourselves and sometimes we even forgot about the camera.

If you are looking for a professinal, outgoing, unique photographer who will provide you with the most extraordinary and simple perfect pictures then Elvis is your guy.

Elvis was our photographer for pre-wedding in bay area. We are very happy about the photos and appreciate the great work from Elvis. Elvis is excellent based on our experience, because: Elvis is very familiar with good places, and helped us to figure out the best route to cover as many as views, in very limited time. All photos are so great by nature. I highly recommend Elvis to all my friends! More...

My husband and I got married at Stanford Church in late July and we had Elvis as our photographer to record our biggest moment in our life. It was a blast - very professional settings that he could quickly find the best spot for great pictures! The angle and the lights were the best we could ask for!

Pre-wedding, wedding ceremony, and our reception were perfectly captured with Elvis' camera! It was such an awesome experience having him photo shooting for us so I definitely recommend him snapshotting any special events in your life! I would invite him again to record my next big moment in life.

Highly recommend him to everyone especially Asian girls and couples. He definitely understands what we want :D

Elvis was very understanding and patient about that, and he even played with her for a while. This May, we went back to Ann Arbor for my husband’s doctoral’s gradation ceremony. We went for Elvis for a shoot undoubtedly. However, our 18 month daughter wasn’t so corporative at all time. I thought we didn’t get much of good posing but when Elvis sent over the photos, I figured I was wrong. The best thing we love about Elvis that he is really good at capturing the casual yet best moments. He made everyone feel very relaxed and comfortable, all we had to do is be ourselves and sometimes we even forgot about the camera.

I've heard of Elvis literally years before I did a photo shoot with him. Back in the day, he was quite famous for taking amazing portraits for girls at his college in Shanghai. And I'm so glad he moved to LA!!! Not only is he a great photographer, but also he went out of his way to drive me to the location (Mt Wilson) for the shoot. He's also the most "affordable" photographer you can find in town with this level of experience & expertise. Do keep in mind that because he has a full time job, scheduling could be a bit tricky. He's so busy and gets booked up super fast on weekends. I would do a shoot with Elvis again in a heartbeat. Hands down one of the best photographers in town. More...

The most memorable photo shooting experience I've ever had! I first came across Elvis's photos on Facebook and had been thinking about doing one with him ever since. Elvis is very kind, funny, and most importantly, very professional. I was a little nervous at first and didn't know how to pose naturally, but Elvis was extremely patient and he made me laugh so many times. He picked me up from my apartment, asked for my opinions on picture styles and location preferences. He was definitely well prepared - he had all his equipments ready and switched lenses multiple times to fit the lighting. Many of my friends also chose Elvis for their graduation photo shooting, and they were all very pleased with their experiences. If you're planning special events, or simply just want some quality pictures like I do, Elvis is the person to go to! More...

Elvis Yu is a really talented, professional, and passionate photographer! I tend to tense up posing in front of a camera...Instead of taking photos of me looking nervous, he told me to just do whatever I want and took candids! He helps me to become a lot more comfortable in front of the camera and is always really patient!And he's very good at touching up photos without making them look too photoshopped! More...

Elvis is a really awesome photographer. He won't ask you to do any awkward poses. Instead, you can move, walk, jump and laugh as you usually do and he will capture the most natural and beautiful moment of you. My appointment with him was very early in the morning, but he still performed very professional. I was very satisfied with the photos, and the price is quite reasonable. More...

Amazing experience! My boyfriend and I had our graduation shoot with Elvis and it turned out to be the most natural, relaxing shooting experience that I have ever had. He is absolutely professional, patient, kind, and also funny. The entire process turned out to be really fun, which I didn't expect at all. We used a "prop", a whiteboard, and every time we went to a venue, I wrote something on the board, which was so time consuming. But he was very patient, and more importantly, managed to choose a great angle such that both the board and the background were taken into consideration. They really liked our ideas and photoshopped an extra one for us, for free! Who would have a problem with that? Just amazing! I highly recommend him! And his assistant Emily is an expert at posing, take her advice! You won't regret! More...

My friends and I had our graduation photoshoot with Elvis yesterday, and it was a lovely couple of hours! Elvis is extremely patient and talented, and knows how to work with various lightings and backgrounds. My friends and I are not the most natural models, but he was able to capture flattering photos regardless.We ended up being able to shoot at all of the spots we had planned, and got some great pictures at a couple more locations he suggested. We really appreciated how Elvis was 100% open to working with our suggestions to realize what we were envisioning. We were able to view the unedited photos soon after - no waiting in anticipation. Highly recommend his work. Shoutout to his assistant that day, Emily! More...

Elvis Yu is a really professional photographer. The prices are very cheap in speaking of the results I got. I am the worst models ever but the pictures turn out so natural and beautiful. I highly recommend you to do an outdoor shooting with Elvis, which is something he specializes in. I also have friends who did family and group portraits with Elvis, and all held positive comments of the process and results. Highly recommend them for your photoshoots! More...

I have never felt confident when it comes to posing in front of a camera. Elvis has not only helped me to conquer that fear, but to also eradicate that lack of confidence deep within me.
