We had a wonderful experience working with Hok for our engagement photos, rehearsal dinner/ Sangeet/ Mehendi Raat photos, and wedding photos. From the first time we met Hok, we felt very comfortable with him, and he always made us feel comfortable in front of the camera (which is hard since we don't like being photographed generally!). His years of experience show and he has shot all over the Bay Area- he gave us suggestions for locations for our Sangeet and ideas for videographers, going above and beyond his photographer duties. We appreciated how he shot the diversity of our two families and traditions. His photographs are so incredibly beautiful, whether capturing a lehenga/sari or a white wedding dress, an individual portrait or a group dancing. He finds a great balance of getting great posed shots that look still look natural and candid shots that capture everyone's individuality. Our guests keep complementing us on our photographer, and we recommend him to all our friends and family. We will definitely use Hok again in the future and highly recommend him to anyone on Thumbtack looking for a talented, experienced, and creative photographer.
