I wanted to give Stan 4 stars, just to break things up a little, but honestly, I couldn’t. Stan was one of the photographers at our wedding 5.5 years ago (while it was still more-or-less a hobby for him) and his photos were amazing. He captured moments and angles that my husband and I still cherish today. He is professional and an engaging participant in the process of capturing memories. I highly recommend him as a person and as a photographer!

Stan did an AMAZING photography of our wedding in Houston! We had an indoor church wedding, with a military style arch of swords, evening reception and did plenty of outdoor portraits for the wedding party.. He & his team were v professional, patient, engaging and completely SO awesome to work with!!! We highly recommend him!!

My wife and I manage a retreat ranch/wedding venue in the Texas Hill Country and for the past four years we have searched for a photographer who could capture the heart and soul of this place. In that time we’ve had over thirty weddings on the property and half a dozen photo shoots but it wasn’t until we hired Captivate Images that our hopes were fully realized. Stan Kwan and his crew rewrote our expectations. They brought a level of inventiveness and technical expertise that we didn’t know existed. And the results were dramatic. Finally our business and the place we call home has been painted with vivid colors on a canvas that will not only change our marketing campaigns/website, but will bring us personal delight for years to come. Stan isn’t a photographer as much as he is an artist. And for us - his work is a dream come true.

Stan did a wonderful job capturing our wedding on video! I actually did not think we needed a video but I am so thankful he suggested it as it is such a joy to watch it every couple of years to remember. I highly recommend Stan for your wedding. Not only is his work beautiful but he is a Godly man of character that you can depend on and trust.

Stan did an AMAZING job on our wedding video. He delivered the DVD to us promptly while still providing a superior quality product at an extremely reasonable price. He captured moments of our special day that I would have otherwise forgotten — all without being intrusive at all (I honestly barely even noticed that he was filming). His music selection was fantastic and even introduced me to one of my (now) favorite songs. Thanks to Stan, I get to re-live our wedding day any time I want to at the push of a button. I cannot say enough good things about his work!

Stan and his team of photographers did an amazing job with our wedding photos. We couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out, and both sides of our families really enjoyed the pictures. Happy, serious, crazy, etc. Captivate Images captures it all.

Stan was so easy to work with! Engagement photos are meant to show a couple’s love for each other, but “forced” affection for the sake of a photo sounds uncomfortable; thankfully, this is not at all how I would describe our time with Stan. The time we spent together as a couple with Stan flew by so quickly and effortlessly, you’d think we’d all been friends for years and not just met for the first time. Stan has a great eye for shots, and creates an incredibly comfortable atmosphere which makes it easy to enjoy the process. Stan was also extremely quick in getting our photos back to us for viewing and sharing, which was amazing. We’ve loved everything about working with Stan so far and can’t wait to see his work with our December wedding. We look forward to having our beautifully captured pictures for a lifetime to come!

Stan and his team did a great job capturing our wedding. I hardly even noticed them and ended up with some great shots that I can now keep forever! Our highlight video was AWESOME and just the right length to get a good idea of our wedding, but not bore people who watch it. We also got a wedding book that was fantastic and matched our personality. I would definitely recommend Stan and Captivate Images!

Stan has a natural eye for capturing the ‘perfect shot’. My husband and I were especially pleased with the careful consideration that was taken with each shot. Great photography doesn’t just happen with the click of button, it requires an attentive and creative eye towards a variety of elements including lighting, positioning, and composition – a skill Stan made look easy! What a treat to spend the afternoon with such a talent!

I have know Stan as a family friend for most of my life and it was an honor to have him document my wedding day! The photos are literally breath taking and my friends and family say they belong in a magazine. Stan knew the right amount of staff he needed and where to be to capture the greatest moments, I am so grateful that I chose Stan for this job. You will not be disappointed!
