Introduction: Changing Lives With One Click At A Time AllanKuoPhotography.com For me, witnessing a wedding is the greatest honor of being a photographer. Whether in rustic backyards or grand ballrooms, the greatest story is told through the couple and the lens that captures their most powerful moments. I take pride in skill, but most of all, commitment. Some say patience is a virtue; however, commitment transcends time. Commitment to my craft, commitment to honoring the couple, commitment to making their day one to remember. From the Monterey seas to the golden hills of Napa County, I travel to preserve memories. From hilarious happenings to once-in-a-lifetime moments, I strive to capture life's most meaningful memories. Destination to local, I do it all. My years as a wedding and lifestyle photographer have given me a keen eye, deep professionalism and creativity. I shoot in cities ranging from the Monterey Bay Area to Santa Cruz and surrounding areas, as well as the South Bay (Los Gatos, San Jose, Marin County, San Francisco and Mill Valley), and the East and North Bay (Fremont, Oakland, Berkeley, Napa and Wine County).

Portrait Photography

I booked Allan for a maternity shoot. He was very professional, friendly and flexible with his time. The day and time I chose ended up to be super windy, cold and had overcast :( I was worried the pictures wouldn't turn out nice but I was definitely wrong. The turn around time for getting the pictures were less than a week. When we received the photos, it surpassed our expectations. I would hire Allan again and recommend him to my friends!

Working with Allan was great. He took very nice professional head shots for my mom and I at Cayote Hills Regional Park. He was east to communicate with and sent us the edited photos soon after the shoot.

We had a great time in a pre-elopement portrait session with Allan! During the entire process, he was very communicative and transparent - we had a great zoom call where he gave us a few recommendations on timing and place, his intuition about when our portrait session should be given the forecast was spot on, and the timing for getting photos back was super fast. The session itself was great despite the cold, and the photos turned out beautifully. Thanks again Allan!

Engagement Photography

I cannot recommend Allan highly enough. He was the perfect person to capture my engagement, the greatest day of my life. His work is outstanding. He has an incredible attention to detail and made the entire process seamless and effortless. I appreciate all the direction he gave during the photo shoot. I’ve been around photographers that expect you to know how to pose, and not everyone knows how to do that. With Allan, you’re in the best of hands. You can trust his direction so that the final product is everything you want and more. You should definitely hire him, whatever your photography needs may be!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I love to meet, if not, a phone call would be great. Followed by an email to detail everything. Relationship is key.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I shoot at a ton of nonprofits, so I tend to understand the nuances of events and filling a need.
