I found Taky on Yelp, after reading some good reviews and talking to him on the phone, I decided to hire him as my wedding photographer.
He drove all the way from LA to San Diego at no extra cost, and his price is a lot more attractive than most other photographers. On the day of the wedding, he arrived promptly and stayed from my makeup session to the end of the last dance.
He is such a fun guy and the guests loved him, he had a way of finding the outgoing guests and made them do or say funny things. The wedding video came out beautiful, he captured all the memorable moments and expressions, and the blooper section was hilarious! Love the video, thanks Taky! : )

A good friend of mine recommended Taky for my wedding. We're glad we hired Taky as our videographer! My wife and I were extremely pleased with his overall professionalism, service, and his great sense of humor with our guests. Taky interacted very well with our family and guests. He made them feel comfortable and got them involved but didn't over do it. Many of our guests provided compliments for Taky!
Taky and his crew were very flexible in working with us during the day of our wedding. They really took care of "business." The DVD's that he were exceptional. He really captured all the precious moments of our wedding.
We also hired Sam as our photographer who works at the same company with Taky. We were also very pleased with Sam as he interacted well with the guests, was very professional, and worked well with his whole crew.
I highly recommend Taky and Sam of LA Color because they really make your wedding that much better.

I knew Taky from my sister wedding. He was very funny and energetic. I had proposed to my girlfriend then prior to my sister's wedding and I knew that I had to use Taky for my videographer.
For my wedding, Taky was both energetic and fun around my guests. He impressed some of my friends that 3 of my friends ended up hiring Taky for their own wedding.
Thanks Taky for everything. For any new bride and groom, Taky is highly recommended

I highly recommend the service from LA Color. I knew Taky, the videographer from my friend's wedding, where I was one of the BM. I knew I had to hire Taky for my own wedding after seeing how well he interacts with everybody. He is very funny & passionate with what he does, he had his ways to get your guests to talk and enjoy the wedding in order for him to capture the best moments in the video.
After working with him for our own wedding, both my husband and I are very pleased throughout the entire process. He goes above and beyond to make sure that he delivers the best service, and he treats his clients like his friends. He also gave us all kinds of recommendations based on his experience . It was truly a pleasure working with Taky.
We also hired LA color for the photograher session, the pictures turned out nice, and we get to keep all 3,000 proofs, which is awesome! Sam is very professional at the wedding day, he is very dedicated and took a lot of shots for the wedding party. Although it took a while for Sam to get back to us on some of our requests (before and after the wedding due to the busy wedding season), and we wish there would be more variations on the touch up photos, but overall, we are happy with the pictures and we look forward to see the finished album. Both Sam and Taky are very professional, and are very flexible to work with.
We actually ended up getting our lighting and photobooth services from LA color as well. It was a great idea to bundle up from the same vendor, not only do you get great discount, but we have the entire crew at our wedding as back up. It truly made the entire wedding process go smoother. Both the wedding day photo and photobooth sessions made it to our videos too, that's one benefit you get for hiring a single vendor.
Overall, you won't go wrong if you go with LA Color.
Juia and Richard
We are Alumiq Productions I would like to take the opportunity to extend my recommendation for Taky's services. He's been a great help to many MANY videographers all over the world and has had many year of experience.
LA Color does great work and continues to improve. You can't go wrong with LA Color.
Anthony Vu at Alumiq Productions
I received the DVDs last Thursday and we enjoy every moment of it! Thank you so much for such an awesome job! LA Color had done such a great job if we have any friends/family needing photography or videograhpy, we will recommend LA Color to them.
Vivian and Raymond
We received the DVD and have been viewing it these days, thank you. WE like the different sound tracks feature. The highlights are nice too. Our favorites are the dedications and bloopers.
Christine & Michael
Two thumbs up for Taky's excellent service!!! My husband and I are very satisfied with his work. He is very friendly and easy to work with. His great personality definitely helps to engage people to act and talk in front of a video camera. I have seen a few samples from other vendors and have never seen one that is as creative as Taky's. He includes a 'dedication' section which is one of our favorite part of the DVD. When my husband and I look back to our wedding day, it seems that everything happened so fast and we didn't even have time to say hi to all of our guests. Fortunately, Taky was able to capture what we missed. Our guests' greetings are beautifully edited into the 'dedication' section. We love the bonus features he offers (e.g. bloopers, wedding highlight montage and the language selections). Also, we love Taky's talented editing skills and he makes the final footage looks like a movie (we enjoy the sound effect and the music selections). All of our friends and families enjoy the DVD (even one of my single girl friend says that she will definitely hire Taky when she gets married)!
Taky responses very quickly to our questions and concerns via email and phone (both before and after the wedding)! His team showed up early to prepare on our wedding day. We couldn't have been happier with our choice. I know some people may be considering to cut videography from their wedding budget; I strongly encourage them to go see Taky's work. I know they will not regret it for having Taky as their wedding videographer. We strongly recommend LA Color!
Cindy & Andrew
Thanks for being our videographer; you added life to our wedding party :D You have a unique talent to make people to enjoy themselves, and be a part in our special moment. We can see and feel that people truly had fun; they enjoyed the nights so much, they were willingly danced in front of the video without showing any shyness or awkwardness :D Awesome job.
I also saw that you approached a couple of people for their testimonies/well wishes for us; thank you for doing that, it'll definitely made our final video the more special. Another good thing I notice is that people felt comfortable with you and your videocamera; that's really a talent that not many people can do easily.
Also the slideshow, people that I have talked to said it was different than what they had seen before, and they enjoyed it so much. Thanks for capturing our past, and current special moments, and wrapped it in a small digital package for us to take home and remember always.
We'll definitely refer you to any of our friends who are about to get married; we're pretty sure they will feel the same way that we do about your great work, and the amount of efforts you put into it. We're trully blessed to have you as our videographer.
Awesome work, and God bless you!!
Amy and Abe
Taky, you really went over and beyond the call of duty. We all gathered at my parent's house last night to watch the [birthday party] video. You did an amazing job. We were very impressed how you edited your different cameras. You even edited the introduction of my parents to fit in the right place even though the boys forgot to do it. We enjoyed it all. Thank you for making it so special and fun. The interviews in the bloopers were pretty funny. You have a very cheerful and pleasant personality, perfect for the job.
The blue ray videos were so clear and the packaging was great. We were all very impressed and grateful to be able to take home our own copy. Thank you very, very much!!!!
Arthur, Sandra and family
Thank you thank you thank you ~ there are no words to describe how greatful I am to have you as my wedding videographer. You did such an amazing job capturing all the special moments both laughter and tears! Thank you for everything.
Gloria & Viet
Ed and I want to thank you so much for a perfect video of our wedding. We are so happy with it - every detail, every angle, so intricately put together. It was the best piece of memory yet of the entire event. We knew your work would be amazing but this surpassed beyond our highest expectations. Thank you again and you are trully talented! We will refer you to ALL our engaged friends =) which at our age are alot heheheee...
Your creativeness is unseen among the many videographers I met with...
Fonda & Edward
I used LA Color as our wedding videographer. We know some people think that photographer is enough for wedding. A videographer is not necessary, but it was to me. My grandma lives in Indonesia, and she was too old to travel to attend the wedding. I need something professionally done so that she can watch our wedding. Later on, my husband's grandparents had to leave early as well because husband's grandma was feeling sick, so we were glad that they would be able to catch the rest of the day on the DVD.
And we totally made the right decision! During the wedding day, Taky and his assistant were professional, friendly, and very interactive with the guests. He has a lot of experience especially with Chinese style wedding (tea ceremony and Chinese banquet). He gives suggestions through out the wedding day to make the video more memorable. But he's not only good in Chinese wedding, my wedding ceremony is actually a Catholic mass in a church in Pasadena. He moves around the church very respectfully, and we didn't even notice he was there.
This weekend, we just received our wedding video. That was what made me write this review. The video was great!!! We popped it in the DVD player and watched the whole thing again! There were so many things going on that we missed during the wedding day. He interviewed a LOT of guests to give their messages to us. Besides the wedding itself, he also created extra features such as bloopers, dedications, photo sessions, etc etc. It was almost like watching a movie...!! We were laughing soo hard watching the reception because everyone was just drunk and having a great time.... Another great feature was that he made an option so that the DVD can be easily translated into three different language with a touch of a button (Indonesian, Chinese, and English). How awesome is THAT...!!! Before he finalized the DVD he gave me a sheet of paper to translate so that he can add all the Indonesian into the DVD.
I am very happy with LA Color. Taky has great personality and talent. I highly recommend him for anybody. In fact, my brother is getting married this year, and he's using LA Color for his wedding... =)

Angela & Steve
The DVD is more than just great. It's a piece of art! We can see you were putting lots of efforts, energys and experience to our DVD!!!
I already sent four copies to oversea for my friends and familys. Besides, I am showing my friends about your Honeymoon perfect cut and mix
work so they know how professional you are!
We love you job man! It's a WOW WOW work
Jack & Joy
Taky recorded the wedding day precise, short, yet eventful--he didn't miss a single important moment plus extras, without dragging the shot! I loved our bonus DVD too--such a fun addition!
And of course, lets not forget to mention how sweet, friendly, and professional Taky is! He has such a awesome and lovable personality, and he totally mingled with our guests--this definitely showed in our DVD!
WE LOVE HIM and wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a great videographer to capture your special day!
Cynthia & Son
We used LA Color for photography and videography. We are extremely happy with our wedding photos and DVD. We got our DVD a few days ago. Sam and Taky exceeded our expectations. They captured so much more than we could ever have hoped for. They were professional, friendly, and extremely helpful with instructing the family and friends.
What is so fantastic about the photos and DVD of the wedding is that they really captured how everyone enjoyed themselves. The album and DVD look perfect, and they flow from the moment Sam arrived at the house all the way through to the evening banquet.
We highly recommend LA Color to anyone wanting fantastic photos and DVD of their wedding day. We felt it was so important to have quality photos and DVD of the wedding, as once the wedding day is over, you're left with memories and fab photos. Our wedding album and DVD are just beautiful and if we had our time again we wouldn't change a thing about our choice with LA Color.
Tracy & Chuck
We had Sam and Taky from LA Color to do our video and photos on our wedding day. It was one of the best decisions that we made. They are the very best Videographer & Photographer in LA. Their work was fantastic! I just donít know how to express how much I appreciate them.
We had over 1800 pictures on our wedding day!!!! Every one of those picture were great! There is not any one of the picture that I have complaint of. We were worry that our photos would not come out good in our reception because our reception hall was pretty dim. Sam took the time and effort to fix all those lighting issue for us. For those of you who wants quality and donít want to sacrifice the quantity, Sam from LA-color is your only choice!
As for the video, Take is definitely a professional, fun, interesting, and pretty good looking Videographer. Our wedding DVD consist of 2 discs: 1 DVD with all the little cute and fun video/highlights of the wedding day, and the other DVD is the serious long version of the wedding. This "long version" was not a long boring raw video. In fact, Taky put a lot of time to polish it up to make the video long but interesting. On the wedding day, he would also giving hint to shoot the best photos and video. He is just great to work with. You won't go wrong if you choose Taky!!!
Wing & Derreck
We love the video!! Our parents thoroughly enjoyed our video. I believe Quan's parents even got misty-eyed listening to the dedications. I still remember the very first time I met Taky at his office! Quan and I loved his personality and I remembered walking away from the meeting, thinking this guy really loves what he does! Taky was very upbeat and easy going from day one!
Videography was something that we were, at one point, debating to forego but luckily when we met our photographer, he told us that it was something we should not forgo as we may regret it down the road. From that point on, we wanted to make sure we hired a videographer who was not cheesy but definitely professional, fun and got along with our photographer as well as our guests! LA Color definitely delivered what we wanted.
On the day of the wedding - Taky showed up on time and filmed us throughout the day. He was never in our faces and made everyone felt at ease! Taky also completed our photo montage and did a wonderful job with the montage!
It took me (the bride) quite awhile (bad on my part) to get back to Taky with all the materials to finish our wedding video but Taky was very patience. In our email correspondences, at times, I felt like I was corresponding to a friend because that was just how Taky made you feel. He was very professional in his work and still managed to have you feeling like, at the end of the day, you wanted to be his friend.
Would we recommend LA Color? In a heartbeat and without hesitation, a definite YES! The final product speaks for itself but along the way, you end up making a friend! Thank you for the wonderful work!!
Natalie and Quan
EVERYBODY, listen, TAKY IS THE BEST BEST VIDEOGRAPHER.
Gloria & Nicholas

Great job on separating the scenes. Bloopers were hilarious. You did a great job in capturing all the moments from the wedding. There were moments that I missed. Thank you again for a fantastic job.

Lynn and Stephen
So I had a long day at work and came back home late, all grumpy and tired. And then Dany greeted me with a smile. Why? Because we got the videos!!! Hey, thanks! We really enjoy it and watched it until now. We didn't even eat dinner yet. I think we had just as much fun watching it as on the day. We're thoroughly pleased with all the hard work that you put into it. Kudos to you and Sam!
We'll be referring all our fun friends your way. This is something we'll cherish forever. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your time. We're going to have so much fun looking at the videos over and over again. We're glad that we had you do the videos, as it was something memorable for us...and most importantly, we had fun in the process. Love the bloopers and the dedications.
Rich and Dany
DVD was wonderful; we just love it so much!!!! John and I cannot stop watching it everyday. You did a great job, thanks!
Amber and John
I watched the DVD three times with 3 different groups the same day I received it. Can you believe that, it was that well made. You did a magnificant job. Somehow, watching the slideshow got me in tears this time instead of at my wedding. Probably because I saw Neo in tears. The DVD was like watching a movie. Well, just want to let you know that "You are the best."
Ihua and Neo
I watched the DVD and just want to let you know that it is very very nice. It's sweet to see all those things that I missed myself on my wedding day. The only thing is my hair was very messy especially when it's covered by the veil..too bad.. Thank you very much for your hardwork!!
