Mike Wu, Vancouver Photographer
Weddings, Portraits, Headshots, Events
My wife and I would highly recommend Mike to any of our friends looking for a wedding photographer.
We did the engagement and wedding pictures, and both turned out great. We had no prior experiences with a professional photographer, so the engagement shoot was a great opportunity to do a trial run to figure out what to expect. Mike encouraged us to meet ahead of time to better understand what we were like and what we might prefer. Even though we gave Mike almost nothing to work with in terms of our expectations, he was able to figure out exactly what we ended up liking.
Mike and his assistant were able to capture many great candid moments, as well as many of the unexpected moments that unfolded the day of the wedding. Not only were Mike and his assistant professional, they were also able to keep us laughing and smiling and were great to talk to.
Thanks to Mike, we are able to relive the day and see many moments we missed due to the constant rush and stress that weddings bring. Mike surpassed all of our expectations. Thank you!Martin and Jamie
Mike shot my wedding earlier this year and did an AMAZING job. I couldn’t be happier with the photos we received and my overall experience with Mike Wu Photography! He’s extremely well prepared, professional and detail-oriented. During our consultation, he took the time to really understand our vision and offer advice to help us make our event a success. On the day of the event, Mike and Evan were really creative, accommodating and a blast to work with for the photoshoot before our banquet. On top of that, throughout the day, they captured so many candid moments which are our favourite kind of photos. Every time we look through the albums, we get to relive the day and all those special spontaneous and genuine moments. Thank you, Mike, for all your hard work and the beautiful photos! We really appreciate all the ways you went above and beyond.Ray and Ryan
A totally positive experience. We shot both dance photos and acting head shots in one session. I came with an idea of what I wanted and he worked with that while making sure I had the best lighting and suitable backgrounds. Highly professional attitude, and that is very important to me!!!
Can we give more than 5 stars? Mike’s photos speak for themselves, because our wedding photos are amazing! He has a special vision that translates beautifully in the resulting photo. He captured every moment perfectly and when we were looking at the photos, it triggered many happy memories we got to relive through the photos. He is extremely passionate and professional about his work and it clearly shows in his countless hours of preparation, following up, and incredible attention to detail. 100% recommended and will definitely work with Mike again in the future! THANK YOU!Kat and Vu
I love Mike!! I met him through his cosplay shoots a couple of years ago when he photographed some of my work, and I was charmed enough with it to seek him out specifically to work on a shoot for a hair show I was putting on. I love the way the photos turned out, he’s super easy to work with and despite how hectic the environment was, I was able to just kind of throw my models at him and tell him to go nuts, and the results were fantastic. His turnaround time for editing and getting the final copies to you is amazingly quick, also!! Very flexible and easy to work with. Not only is quality of work important but so is having a very easy personality, and Mike’s an awesome photographer! Thanks Mike!!Charlie
We used Mike as our photographer for our wedding and he was amazing! He has the ability to capture all the different emotions and special moments. Mike is great to work with. We gave him our photo ideas and he took them to an unbelievable level. His passion and vision in taking shots show through the photos. If we ever need to use a photographer, we would definitely use Mike again.
Thanks Mike.Jon and Emi
Mike is a fantastic photographer! He made our whole group feel comfortable and was very receptive to what we wanted in our pictures. Mike’s passion for capturing precious moments in people’s lives really shines through in his work. Thank you for the great experience!Allison
Definitely one of my favourite photographers I’ve shot with! He was very professional with the shot, on time, very friendly and had fun with the shoot, which is one thing I appreciate in photographers. He does so much work putting so much into each shot and I feel he deserves more credit, (not just for making me look awesome hehe) but because his photos are amazing and I feel they capture the moments perfectly.
I definitely look forward to my next photoshoot with you Mike!Ernie
Mike Wu Photography was the designated photographer for the Dandelion athletes (athletes with disabilities) at the 2015 UBC Synchro Annual Watershow and the 2015 Lower Mainland Regional Recreational Synchronized Swimming Meet hosted by Synchro B.C..Through microfilm, Mike Wu Photography not only captured our swimmers’ performances in the best light but also highlighted their abilities as they bloomed in full adversity. We are greatly appreciative of the time, effort and professionalism taken by Mike Wu Photography in helping to document our athlete’s success. He takes each client’s goal as priority and in our case, helped to highlight the less visible assets in our community. We hope to work with Mike Wu Photography again in the near future!Carrie
Mike is super friendly, creatively and his photos are some of the best I’ve seen! He works so well with everyone. When you are doing a shoot with him it just feels like you’re hanging with a friend, very chill. Thanks for everything Mike!!! 🙂Danielle
