Donna and Daniel are amazing. Photo shoots can be awkward for a lot of people but they do such a great job at making you feel comfortable. Our engagement shoot was our first professional photo shoot so my husband and I didn't have any preference when it came to poses. They did a great job at instructing us. By the time our wedding rolled by we already had some shots in mind and they were open to whatever we wanted. They were amazing on our big day and helped us out with more than they needed to. By the end of the day I felt like we were old friends. Our photos are stunning! I would highly recommend Studio Opia to anyone. Thank you Donna and Danny! More...

My wife and I booked Daniel & Donna to photograph our wedding and engagement sessions. They are incredibly professional and truly experts at what they do. Let me give you an example: they have done so many wedding and SF City Hall engagement sessions; their expertise and experience saved us a lot of time and they told us exactly where to go and how to pose. The photos came out to be amazing and they worked very hard and gave 100% of their efforts - which is exactly what we are looking for. In addition, their price is super reasonably compared to other photographers - believe us because we have done our research. Daniel and Dana also worked very well together since they're a couple. You are not wasting any time because of their seamless teamwork - you don't have time to waste on your wedding day. With all that, we highly recommend STUDIO OPiA to all couples. :) More...

As a freelance photographer myself there was a lot of reluctance to handing over the duty of covering our special day to anyone other than myself or close friends who were also photographers. However, as soon as I saw the portfolio from Studio OPiA, their style immediately resonated with me and I knew we had to have them.

Daniel and Donna were not only extremely personable, but very professional. They were more than game to deal with my tendency for micromanagement and as soon as I understood just how proficient they were, I didn't have to worry - I never HAD to worry. In terms of just the logistics of the day, they were dialed in with the venue coordinator and never missed a beat and were even more than accommodating when it came to staying a little bit later when we ran past schedule (always a plus when your vendors understand how chaotic a wedding day always inevitably is).

As for the photos - even for a pedant like me, I found very little to fault in their work.
Our early summer wedding meant that we had a lot of daylight to work with so our photos depending primarily on natural light. Their compositions ranged from tight smaller detail photos to more wide-angled, environmental shots with a blend of straight on portraits and candid moments. The fact that they worked as a tag team and didn't lug along a bunch of equipment made them very lean and flexible which is important as a photographer. They never fumbled around with swapping out cameras and lenses, which translates to more shots and a higher chance of catching many of the candid goofy moments that we enjoy almost as much as the more formal glamour-type portraits.
As the evening wore on, some of the night photos suffered from the lack of artificial lighting (e.g. dance floor had only string lights). However, if we could have foreseen that being an issue, I'm positive that OPiA
could have arranged for additional equipment on-site.
As for post-processing, they are not heavy-handed. Adjustments made in post included a handful of slight exposure and color tweaks, which was completely okay for me as any additional editing I could perform on my own if needed. There were some odd choices for cropping, but nothing that would have ruined the original intent in composition - their shots were always on mark.

Their photos came back to us in a more than timely fashion. OPiA provided their photos online via SmugMug and in multiple formats for various uses (if I needed any additional photos or formats, they were accommodated).

All this long-windedness to say, OPiA brought great style, practicality, and proficiency at a great value. I would gladly hire them again and highly recommend them.

Shuyu and Donna are an amazing and lovely couple who have great ideas and taste on taking beautiful photos. They are very easy to communicate and flexible. They even provide 9 beautifully touched photo on the second day of the wedding late in the evening for us posting on social media. Highly recommended. More...

We loved working with Daniel and Donna on both our engagement shoot and our wedding photos! They were extremely dedicated and sensitive to our needs, the environment, and the overall outcome of the shoot. Their suggestions were both detail-oriented and resulted in a lovely flow of photos that made sense as a cohesive whole. Their hard work paid off in some of the most beautiful wedding photos I've ever seen. Not only was the final product aesthetically pleasing, but it really captured the warm mood of the celebration and the atmosphere of our wedding so well. They are truly such a talented couple and a pleasure to work with. We cannot recommend them highly enough! More...

We used Studio Opia for both our engagement and wedding photos. Choosing a great photographer for your big day is so important! And I'm so glad we had Studio opia!! The team is fun, talented, passionate, incredibly professional and super creative. During the day of our wedding, I can't explain enough how awesome they were. My husband and I were kinda nervous at the beginning because we never felt that comfortable in front of the camera but Daniel and Donna instantly made us feel at ease. Although it was a little bit raining on our wedding day, they took full advantage and create a special atmosphere in photos. Donna and Daniel did a wonderful job capturing lots of the sweetest moments from this special day. I was amazed by all of our beautiful wedding photos and we've already received so many compliments from our family and friends. Thank you so much! Would highly recommend!! More...

Donna and Daniel went over and beyond for our engagement and wedding photos! They were very responsive, professional and creative. During our first meeting, my wife and I expressed that we weren't too comfortable in front of the camera and were pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to take photos during our engagement photo session as Donna and Daniel made us feel very comfortable. Donna and Daniel were very attentive during our wedding day and always made sure to check in with us to ensure they were capturing everything we wanted. We are blessed to have come across their webpage as we truly loved working with them and are so glad they were a part of capturing our love and special day! We are confident that you should look no further than Studio Opia for your photography needs as you will NOT be disappointed! We look forward to working with them again for our maternity shoot :) Thank you, Donna and Daniel!!! More...

We highly recommend Donna and Daniel as your wedding photographers. This sounds like a generic line, but I cannot tell you how many compliments we've gotten from the wedding photos. Donna and Daniel are professional and responsive. The communications with them via email and phone were always very efficient. Donna even came to my rehearsal to be familiarized with the venue. They're husband and wife that have a great sense of artistry through their lenses. If you have seen their portfolio and found yourself identifying with their style, don't hesitate to contact them. I know it's a big decision; at least it was a very important decision for me since photos are what I have down the road to reminiscence about the wedding. The photos turn out phenomenal. Their style is refreshing with natural lighting, which is exactly what I was looking for. The photos look like they're straight out of a magazine. Anyways, we are very happy and grateful we've found them as our photographers. Thank you Donna and Daniel! More...

We hired Studio Opia to be our photographer for our engagement and wedding pictures. THEY ARE WONDERFUL! On the wedding day, they got to our hotel on time and started shooting immediately. We have a pretty tight schedule on the wedding day (assume the same for everyone haha), but they knew what they are doing so everything was on time. Daniel and Donna are professional and friendly, I know I chose the right photographer after our first meeting. As for the picture we received, we love them!! I didn’t ask for retouch the photos because everything was just so perfect. Thank you, Daniel and Donna, for all your hard work. Highly recommended! More...

We take our family photos every year with Daniel and Donna. The pictures they took are so nice and we can't stop posting them on our social media account. And a lot of my friends ask me where do we take the photo when they saw my posts. My wife and I love all of them. Also, they are such nice people and my baby girl loves them! Especially Donna. We are so worried it may become a hard shooting day since our "terrible two" daughter will not be corporate. But Donna is so patient and nice playing with her before shooting. And they become good friends after ten minutes! Then the whole shooting process is nice and easy. And the pictures they took for my girl are so cute and pretty. We already booked next year photo and my daughter can not wait to meet her good friends again. More...

Donna and Daniel are the best! From start to finish the process was so smooth. They are true professionals who helped us plan how to capture the key moments of our ceremony. They were so incredibly helpful on our wedding day and flawlessly executed our "first look". The pictures are gorgeous and we could not be happier with them! When we received them it was like living the day all over again! A huge thank you to Studio OPiA for all of their hard work and for providing us with such an amazing set of photographs! More...

Donna and Daniel helped us with our wedding in September and they are amazing. They were so professional and easy to work with. They helped us with the timeline of the day and told us exactly how to pose. We sent them sample photos and they were able to help us recreate. We are so happy with the photos we received.  Thank you so much Donna and Daniel! Can't wait to work with you guys again! More...

Studio Opia did both our engagement session and wedding photography. We had a good time working with them.
Daniel was quite thoughtful on helping us prepare a beautiful bouquet, which turned out really good in our engagement photos. It took longer for the engagement shooting to be done than we expected, but Daniel still did an amazing job with his patience and dedication.
On the wedding day, Donna and Daniel arrived early. They were super nice and professional on showing us how to pose in a natural way for the best effect of our pictures. Thanks to them, we got to keep such a wonderful memory of our wedding. Additionally, their work was so efficient too. We received all of our wedding pictures that are either retouched or color adjusted only within one month after the wedding day.
Highly recommend them to anyone who is in search of the photographers for the wedding and engagement photos!

Donna and Daniel are great! They are not only very responsive but also very accommodating. I met with Donna the day after a family member passed away, which was 2 weeks before the wedding, and I was extremely stressed. Talking with Donna helped so much - not only because her knowledge and experience were very reassuring, but she was also very comforting. Throughout the wedding day, they were professional, hardworking, and definitely hustling to get their shots. They also sent us our photos 5 weeks after our wedding. That's a pretty quick turnaround considering I know couples who've had to wait several months. I am very happy with the service they provided! Highly recommend them was wedding photographers.

Daniel and Donna were amazing! We hired them for our wedding day and they were great at every step of the process and made our wedding day so special and beautiful. It was awesome working with them from the start. They were very responsive and professional and answered all our questions and concerns. On the wedding day, they showed up early and stayed late even though it was quite a drive to our venue. They had lots of great creative ideas for photos. It was a pleasure working with them as they also listened to our needs. Most importantly, the pictures were gorgeous. We absolutely loved the colors, composition, and their overall attention to detail. Highly recommend them for wedding and portrait photography. More...

Daniel and Donna are a pleasant to work with. They're so professional and patient. We are beginners at taking photos but they take the time to show us how to pose. They captured not only stunning portraits, beautiful details, and all our memorable moments. Our guests felt welcome and comfortable with them. They're also great at retouching photos. The photos came out exactly as we wanted and way beyond expectations. Highly recommend Daniel and Donna!! More...

We hired Studio Opia for our engagement photo and wedding photo shoot. Daniel did a great job on both shooting! We kind of decided that we want to do engagement photo on the last minute, and they are kind enough to squeeze our shooting into their schedule and did a wonderful job. They are very experienced and know all the great places for good pictures. We took great use of the two-hour engagement session and got tons of great pictures!
On the day of our wedding, they are very professional and taught us how we should pose. And they coordinated with our video guys very well.
There are several things that I really appreciate about. Firstly, they are very efficient. They delivered our engagement photo a week after our shooting so we could use them on our wedding sign-on table. They also finish and sent me several pictures only couple days after our wedding so I can post them on social media. The final delivery was in about one month time after our wedding.
Secondly, Daniel and Donna are both great people. During the shooting, after so many hours of smiling, our smile were just stiff and frozen. Donna brought up some great jokes that made all of us laugh so hard. Beside the jokes, they made a lot of effort so that we could be more natural on camera.
Lastly and most importantly, they do take really nice pictures. I love them all.
Thank you Daniel and Donna!I feel so lucky to have you guys shooting my wedding pictures!

We love Studio OPiA! Daniel & Donna helped us take two sessions of family pictures both indoor at their Studio and outdoor at June Lake, CA (5+ away from bayarea). They were really patient with kids and especially Donna is really good at entertaining my 4 year girl and 2 year boy by kept them laughing and cooperating during the photo-shot and even the entire trip. Mr. Daniel is very professional and a perfectionist, the indoor session ran from 5pm-10pm and I have to say he really enjoys what he is doing and the products are just fabulous! They captured the precious moments in my life and made them last forever. I am planning to be back to the Studio every year and build my family album with Daniel and Donna. Thank you so much and good work!! More...

A friend of mine introduced Studio Opia to me for my wedding photography. What a great find! Daniel and Donna are very patient, professional, artistic, thoughtful and also sweet! On the hectic wedding day, they made sure to capture all the precious moments, not just of me and my husband, but also our families and guests, as well as food and settings. They were also flexible during the wedding day to help coordinate everything, and made sure to understand and capture what we wanted. Even my parents were commenting how nice they were, after the short interaction with them after the wedding! They provided high quality and beautiful wedding photos very quickly too, and even edited extra photos that they liked for us to keep. We are really glad to have them capture our wedding, and we would definitely come to them again for any professional photography in the future! More...

Donna and Daniel were great to work with! They are not only very responsive but also very accommodating. We changed our wedding day schedule one day before the wedding. I was very stress about the change and worried they would not be able to arrive on time. However, they arrived early and even brought some styling props for the shooting. Throughout the wedding day, they were professional and hardworking. We couldn't be happier with the service they provided! Highly recommend to every couple who is looking for wedding photographers.

As a musician and picky customer, I have sharp sense of sounds and pictures.

When we were looking for our wedding photographer, I had a very high expectation that the photographer must have very good taste of the picture. Good attitude and professional are just basic requirements.

Donna and Daniel's portfolio caught my eyes after I did a lot of searching and felt frustrated. Most of the photos by Studio OPiA are bright and warm, people smile naturally, and I can even feel their happiness through the photos. Nature, bright and warm , and happiness! That is exactly what I want my wedding photos look like. I sent Donna email immediately, and she replied very soon. I didn’t ask for a meeting but sent her the pictures l like and what we would like to try.

I remember our wedding day was very cold, and we had some shooting outside on the beach. My husband is the one who said we got enough shooting when photographer Daniel suggesting to go to another spot. ;D The second time we hire Donna and Daniel was for our city hall wedding. Not surprised Donna is an expert, and she arranged us a prefect schedule between the registered process and photo shooting.

We always have our wedding pictures very soon! All of our family and friends are amazed by our wedding pictures!

If you are looking for a great and reliable wedding photographer, Just Contact Studio OPiA! They will be one of great decisions you made for your wedding. Enjoy your big day, and soon you will receive wonderful photos which fully mentioned how beautiful and happy you were on that day!

To me, I will keep in touch with Donna and Daniel, to make sure every big moment happens in my future life, they will be part of it!

Our experience with Donna and Daniel went beyond our expectations. They were great communicators; helping us plan and prep for the wedding day and then helping us wrap up payment and deliveries after the wedding. We are a camera shy couple and they were patient and understanding of our awkwardness. Haha. Their interaction with our wedding party and guests was absolutely fantastic. They really knew how to make everyone feel welcome and comfortable. At the end of the day they felt like old friends. We loved their service, would highly recommend them, and would definitely hire them again in the future. Thanks again Donna and Daniel! More...

Daniel and Donna was amazing on our wedding day! They are so detail oriented and captured all the moments on our big day. Our families and friends had great impressions of them, since they are so nice to work and talk with. They also helped us a lot before the wedding about the wedding day planning, MUA and videographer refer. Most importantly, the final retouched photos turn out to be gorgeous and we love all of them! We got tons of good words about the pictures on instragram. They even send us two different sizes of photos for printing and social sharing. Highly recommend D&D!!! More...

It was a great experience having Daniel and Donna as our City Hall Ceremony Photographers. Our section started late, and the photo shooting ended up lasting longer than we expected. Daniel and Donna were so patient and helpful throughout the whole process. My husband and I are not good at taking photos, but they did a great job capturing the best moments of us. They also did a good job retouching the photos. Our package only covers 20 retouched photos, but they gave us more! Daniel and Donna both have really pleasant personalities that kept everyone happy and comfortable. I will highly recommend them! More...

It took me a little while to write this review because I wanted to articulate in a concise way how truly amazing they were. For any couples considering Studio OPia, choosing them to capture our wedding was the best decision that we made. I would even say, if I were to do it all over again, I would choose them again. Their photographs really speak for the quality and type of work they do and deliver. The photographs were even better than I had imagined. They captured every moment and helped me relive the moments that went by so quickly on my wedding day. I really can't help but rave about them and recommend them. Not only was their work excellent, but Daniel and Donna were also a delight to work with. For my type A brides out there, they arrived at the venue early to scope out the venue and prep before anyone else. We received a sneak peek of our photos within one week and all the edited and unedited photos were delivered under a month. More...

Working with Daniel and Donna was such a pleasant experience. They are the photographers for my civil wedding registration day. We took a lot of pictures at the city hall and also another outdoor location. They are super nice, easy-going and professional! The photos turned out really nice. I was provided a list of photographers by my wedding planner. The only a few that I really liked are all super pricy. Studio Opia was the only one that has very reasonable price but amazing quality. I guess it is because they are just starting their business. Anyways, highly recommended, definitely will come back! More...

I rarely write reviews for vendors but I just have to leave one for Studio OPiA as they exceeded our expectations all around. Our previous photographer had to cancel super last minute -- two days before our wedding and we were SO lucky that Daniel & Donna were available on our day within such a short notice! The communication process was extremely easy: we have the contract ready just after a couple of phone calls. On the wedding day, they did not just arrive earlier than the discussed time, but were also willing to stay over time as we were running behind the schedule. They started working right away and we did not feel they were in the way of anyone throughout the craziness of the day. Professionalism was not just their attitude but we are impressed by how our photos turned out. They captured all the details and moments we were not able to see ourselves on the big day and created all these beautiful images that I’m grateful to be able to hold onto. I’m overjoyed by what they delivered and I would be more than happy to hire them again for future occasions. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Daniel & Donna! More...

I bet all these wonderful comments on yelp already speak for the quality of work you will get for Studio Opia, and that's how good of an impression I first had with Studio Opia. But I think the experience gets better once you actually meet the two photographers Daniel and Donna. To begin with, I'm the type of photophobic person that's not so easy to work with, but Daniel and Donna were really professional in terms of showing me how to pose at certain angles and giving us suggestions in gestures. I was at ease as we took more photos during the day and became more of myself. And I was genuinely surprised how much better I look in the photos and big thanks to Studio Opia for making this photo session into such an enjoyable experience. I'll definitely recommend these two photographers for your engagement and wedding photos! You guys are the best! More...

We tried to find a photograph who is talented and passionate. We were recommended by our friend to Studio Opia. Daniel is kind, creative, flexible, funny and caring. He loves his clients and listens to his clients' preferences and needs. Daniel was flexible to work with our schedule, and to customize a package for our shooting needs in different locations in different towns. For both our engagement and wedding photos, Daniel went to great lengths to capture breathtaking memories which will last a lifetime. Daniel is very good at communicating her ideas, able to focus on both small gestures and organization of big scenes. More...

Could not have asked for a better photographer. We met with quite a few photographer before choosing Studio Opia, and it turned out to be a more than perfect choose. Daniel and Donna are extremely professional and flexible. Every photo they took is perfect - they are excellent at choosing a best spot for photo shooting- meanwhile fast & professional too, good at getting us comfortable in front of camera, and most importantly, they captured each moment that I want to remember, I was very impressed by the photo quality. Not to mention that they are also very friendly and helpful, we did not feel a bit of pressure through out this process, they gave us a lot tips on posing (in a natural and pleasant way), made this whole photo shooting an absolute pleasure. Highly recommend Studio Opia to EVERYONE you won't regret it!! More...

Had our wedding photos taken by Studio OPiA on 10/05/2017 at SF City Hall. They have great attitude and professional services. Daniel is very familiar with SF City Hall, he also willing to inform us about the entire marriage process. He knows all the best spots for wedding photots in the buidling. Me and my wife had zero experienced in being photographed, but Daniel and Donna were doing their best to guide us thru every photos. They took their time and never rush us which make us feel very comfortable during the whole process. We recevied all our original photos and touched up photos within two weeks and we love the them! I will definitely recommend Studio OPiA for anyone that looking for wedding photography done. Thumbs Up! More...

Where do I start with Studio OPiA. After I got engaged, I spent at least 20 hours searching for a wedding photographer, which turned out to be the most stressful time of the entire wedding planning. The ones I liked were simply too expensive, and I wasn't in love with the work of the ones who were within my budget. I was getting really upset, and that's when my MUA referred me to Studio OPiA. Hands down the best referral anyone could ever ask for. I still can't believe how reasonably priced Studio OPiA is and they kept exceeding our expectations in every single way.
Engagement, we had our engagement photo session in Carmel. When we first met Daniel and Donna, they seemed really nice and told us that they love what they do, so they are happy to drive down to Carmel spending an entire day with the couple. I had 3 different looks. Everybody absolutely loved the pictures!
Wedding: Daniel and Donna arrived around noon, and our wedding ceremony was at 6pm. Therefore, it's pretty safe to say that once again they went beyond and above and stayed with us from noon till 10pm. Yes, that's 10 hours! All of our guests can't believe how good they are as Daniel and Donna were every where taking ALL the pics needed at a wedding, they did NOT miss any single moment. I got 1700 pictures within one week of the wedding, unbelievable!!
City Hall: I won't go into too much details, but oh man, they are a-m-a-z-i-n-g. We went on a Friday afternoon (the busiest time ever), and please see the pictures below. I've got the BEST photographers out there - highly highly highly recommended to everyone.

I really love studio OPiA! Daniel is a super professional photographer. He has his unique sense of art, but also very respect my ideas when we work together. We are doing online business so most of time we may need to get the perfect fixed pictures very rush. Daniel and Donna always do productive work! Love Studio OPiA. More...

Where do I start with Studio OPiA. After I got engaged, I spent at least 20 hours searching for a wedding photographer, which turned out to be the most stressful time of the entire wedding planning. The ones I liked were simply too expensive, and I wasn't in love with the work of the ones who were within my budget. I was getting really upset, and that's when my MUA referred me to Studio OPiA. Hands down the best referral anyone could ever ask for. I still can't believe how reasonably priced Studio OPiA is and they kept exceeding our expectations in every single way. Let me explain...Engagement, we had our engagement photo session in Carmel. Anyone who has done some research would know that any other photographer would only allocate 2 hours per engagement session and the price is anywhere between $600 to $1200. When we first met Daniel and Donna, they seemed really nice and told us that they love what they do, so they are happy to drive down to Carmel spending an entire day with the couple. Did you get that, an ENTIRE day. They did drive us down to Carmel, and we spent an entire day together, obviously having lots of fun! I had 3 different looks and we went to 3-4 locations. You can find our session pictures on their website! Everybody absolutely loved the pictures! I was very looking forward to having them at our wedding, and of course, they only exceeded expectations, again.Wedding: Daniel and Donna arrived around noon, and our wedding ceremony was at 6pm. Therefore, it's pretty safe to say that once again they went beyond and above and stayed with us from noon till 10pm. Yes, that's 10 hours! Which other photographers do that? I remember when I was researching for photographers, most of them offered 6 or 8 hours, which clearly isn't enough, not to mention we didn't even have a tea ceremony. Anyways, back to Daniel & Donna. Upon arrival, they started taking pictures of the accessories and our getting ready pictures. They also went to the groom's room and did the same thing. Having them around was simply relaxing, not stressful, and Donna brought my mom a lot of joy. Their focus was on us from start to finish, Daniel ate very quickly so he could come back and take more pictures for us as we went around the tables. Pictures: now let's talk about the pictures. First of, their turnaround time is simply unbelievably fast. I have a friend who still hasn't received their pictures 3 months later. Daniel and Donna provided us the raw pictures within 5 days! All of my friends were shocked that I got my pictures this fast. 1650 wedding pictures and 450 engagement pictures, that's roughly 2000 pictures that were delivered within only a few days. I have no words to explain how much I appreciate them. All of their pictures turned out to be amazing, and honestly did not need to be photoshoped much. I have to choose some pictures for them to photoshop, and it's been difficult to pick, as all of them look flawless! Everyone around us loved the pictures.I highly highly recommend Studio OPiA to everyone, not only Daniel and Donna are good people, they are also super talented and easy to get along with. We absolutely loved their work and for the price you're paying, this is an absolute steal :) More...

A friend of mine introduced Studio Opia to me for my wedding photography. What a great find! Daniel and Donna are very patient, professional, artistic, thoughtful and also sweet! They took time before the wedding to meet us, to discuss all the details of our wedding, from wedding venue layout to what moments and settings we want for the photos. They even made suggestions for my wedding table napkin color after I described what kind of wedding I was envisioning, which I adapted and absolutely loved! On the hectic wedding day, they showed up on time, made sure to capture all the precious moments, not just of me and my husband, but also our families and guests, as well as food and settings. They were also flexible during the wedding day to help coordinate everything, and made sure to understand and capture what we wanted. Even my parents were commenting how nice they were, after the short interaction with them after the wedding! They provided high quality and beautiful wedding photos very quickly too, and even edited extra photos that they liked for us to keep. We are really glad to have them capture our wedding, and we would definitely come to them again for any professional photography in the future! More...

Daniel & Donna were the photographers for my wedding in David Girard Vineyards in April. Before wedding, my fiancee and I browsed many photograhpers work online and we really liked Studio OPiA's work since they are particularly good at capturing portraits. We met and discussed the plan for wedding day and they made us a shot list. Daniel & Donna came to our rehearsal the day before wedding day and got familiar with the venue and took some shots. During wedding day, it was raining. Daniel & Donna prepared a very nice transparent umbrella to help us take photos during the rain. They also prepared us the flower for me to insert into the suit pocket. During the entire wedding, from our dressing to end of the wedding, they captured every details with love and passion. My wife and I were very touched by their service because they did not only take the shots based on the list, but also took many additional shots which captures every good moment. As a result, the deliverable photos were gorgeous and they provided us much more photos than what has been listed. My wife and I are very satisfied with their work. Highly recommend Studio OPiA.

We love Studio OPiA! Daniel & Donna helped us take two sessions of family pictures both indoor at their Studio and outdoor at June Lake, CA (5+ away from bayarea). They were really patient with kids and especially Donna is really good at entertaining my 4 year girl and 2 year boy by kept them laughing and cooperating during the photo-shot and even the entire trip. Mr. Daniel is  very professional and a perfectionist, the indoor session ran from 5pm-10pm and I have to say he really enjoys what he is doing and the products are just fabulous! They captured the precious moments in my life and made them last forever. I am planning to be back to the Studio every year and build my family album with Daniel and Donna. Thank you so much and good work!! More...

First of all, I'm obsessed with my pet bunny Charlie. So when I was presented with the chance to have studio photos taken with him, I was all in. This is the first time I ever really took studio photos for anything and am happy to say I had lots of fun! The studio we took photos at is located in the garage of Daniel & Donna's (I'm gonna refer to them as D&D) townhouse. It was clean, spacious and professional-looking. They have all sorts of photography & lighting equipment. There's also a sofa where your squad can sit and watch the photo-shoot.D&D are super friendly, professional, and accommodating. I came into the session not really knowing what to expect and didn't really prepare anything. Luckily D&D have ideas and they even made a fresh flower crown for Charlie!!! The session took around 1 - 1.5 hours and we got the retouched photos 3 days later. THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL. Charlie looks like a high fashion model and the photos look like they come out of Kinfolk magazine for bunnies. I AM IN LOVE. Thank you so much D&D for making this experience super fun! They are both super talented and even though they have been mostly doing human / non-animal related photography, they were open to my request to photo-shoot Charlie. Lastly, I'm sorry for all the rabbit hair that Charlie left in your studio, I hope it wasn't too hard to clean! More...
