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.

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.

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!

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!

Booking my wedding photography with Donna and Daniel was the best thing I could do in preparation for my wedding! They are an absolute delight to work with and the sweetest people and energy to have with us during our big day! They work so well together and covered twice as much since there are a pair. They were able to wrangle our active families and get capture some wonderful memories for us! I hope to work with them again for whatever reason I need since just being around them made me happy. Thank you to both of you for helping make our wedding day so amazing!

We hired Donna and Daniel to photograph both our engagement photos as well as our wedding. They were very professional and also very flexible, such as dealing with a last minute unplanned location change for the engagement shoot. They knew easily how to position us for photos, and were friendly and fun enough to make us quickly get comfortable posing for each shot. On the wedding day, they were able to deal with the hectic schedule and get in all of the shots we wanted as well. Last but not least, their photo quality and end product is amazing, which you can see from the photos on their website!
