LOVED working with Michael and his team. My husband and I had such a positive experience working with Cukini studio for our wedding. They were so accommodating, very responsive, and the photos turned out to be so beautiful!! I highly suggest you book this company for your wedding or big event.
Absolutely wonderful photos! We had engagement photos and wedding photos done with Michael and ALL of them turned out beautiful. Talent and skills definitely seen through every photo and he captured every moment for us to remember. Thank you!
We had a fun time taking the photos, there was a quick turn around, and the photos look so beautiful. Definitely would recommend Cukini Studio to anyone looking for wedding photography!
Michael was great to work with we just recently got our photos back and they turned out great. There were so many moments he was able to capture. Not only was he extremely professional, he was fun to work with for both our engagement session and wedding. He was super stealth! He was able to mingle with the guests getting great pictures without being one of those in your face photographers. I can’t wait to work with him again!
Captured everything we could have wanted. In the special moments, Michael did not make his presence known, but somehow managed to capture photos.
I can't say enough good things about Michael. He did our engagement pictures and his awesome studio shot our wedding and they were all fantastic to work with. Michael was incredible with communication, flexible when I changed our plans countless times and is a really fun person too. He made us feel comfortable and our pictures turned out gorgeous, we absolutely love them.
Michael was awesome! He was organized, professional, and very prompt with response. :)
Cukini Studio was an absolute joy to work with! The staff was professional and super fun. We hardly even noticed them snapping away pictures all day of the wedding and when we got the prints back we were in love!! I highly recommend Michael and Cukini Studio for any photography needs you may have!
We enjoyed working with Micheal and his team. He helped with our timeline and to make our day perfect. We have gorgeous pictures to last a lifetime and made a friend in the process.
Michael was amazing to work with! He listened to what we wanted for pictures and was very flexible with the scheduling. Their studio was a great background for some of my favorite pictures as well. We couldn't have been happier with our pictures.
Michael and Cukini Studio was absolutely amazing and so much fun to work with. I would 100% recommend him to anyone. :)
Michael was wonderful to work with! Before the wedding he made sure he was familiar with the venue and was very open to discussing pose ideas. As the day grew closer, he did everything he could to make sure that I felt taken care of. This included coordinating a schedule for photos, and the day as a whole! (He was better at this than my actual wedding coordinator from the venue!) I felt very at ease as we went through the day because of this schedule, and it meant a lot to me that he was very flexible with everything if we took longer at one point than planned. My family can be a little stiff for photos, but he was very good at making them feel right at home, and as a result our photos are absolutely beautiful. I would definitely recommend working with him!
First and foremost, 5 stars does not even do justice for Michael from Cukini Studio and how great a professional he is. Due to a miscommunication of dates, the photographer we thought we had originally retained for our wedding booked a separate event and was out of state the day of our wedding. Our wedding day was apparently the #1 wedding day of the season and it happened to be the only Saturday Michael had free. While we were frantically trying to find a new photographer on the morning of our wedding using social media, local camera shops' contacts, etc. Michael saw the post , packed up his gear and was at the church ready to go in less than 30 minutes! He was very efficient and professional, diffusing the pressure of the situation and helping to return the focus to the joyous occasion. Without having previously met to discuss plans, he quickly got up to speed and went to work. We committed to purchase one of the wedding packages up front, of course, but we're certain he went above and beyond to make sure to commemorate a wonderful day. We found the price to be very reasonable and he took no advantage of our desperate situation. As part of the package we purchased, a separate photo shoot was included which would probably be used for an engagement session under normal circumstances. Since we were already beyond that stage, we ended up using the session to do a couple's photo session in our wedding attire at a later date, free from the stress and time constraints of the day. We highly, highly recommend anyone else to do the same as it gives a great opportunity to take time in a relaxed environment to get some more great photos of the couple and at additional venues without having to drag the whole wedding party along. We had a lot of fun working with Michael at both sessions and he had fantastic ideas to set up shots which took a lot of stress away from us. Michael turned a very precarious situation into a wonderful day with no regrets!
Cukini Studio is wonderful to work with! They are a lot of fun and have great ideas! They made our day extra special!
Michael Huang with Cukini Studio at Studio Reserved has done some cool night time shots I've seen! Really talented guy!
This studio has a fun environment and cute fashionable cats. Would definitely take pictures with Michael again! Thank you for the lovely tea party pictures!
Michael and all the people at Studio Reserved are amazing to work with and have the biggest hearts. I love the space, and I hope it's a place where creativity and imagination continue to grow. We're so lucky to have this space in the corridor!
Absolutely beautiful studio. We did a quick cosplay shoot with Cukini Studio and we used 3 of the 10 or so different staged backdrop areas. It was so much fun! I would love to rent the space for an event as well. It's just such a great space. Michael Huang is very personable and easy to work with. I can't wait to do this again. Highly recommend for any kind of portrait photo shoots.
Michael is very talented and a super nice guy! He is very professional and responsive. I highly recommend!

Michael was extremely helpful in getting the best lighting and poses for all of our photos. He also made sure that I got pictures of myself in my dress even though I didn't want to. I'm so glad he did though because they are some of my favorites! He's very kind and professional and we got our photos back very quickly after the wedding. Our wedding photos have turned out perfectly thanks to Michael! He was great at capturing every moment of our day and made sure that we were getting the photos that we wanted. I would definitely recommend Cukini Studio to everyone if you want amazing photos to document your special day!
Michael is someone I haven't done many photoshoots with but the few that I have done he has gone far past my expectations. Very professional but fun & easy to work with in order to get what you want out of your pictures. Whether it's family, graduation, wedding, or basically whatever the reason for your photos, This is your guy.
AMAZING~!! Working with Cukini Studio was a delight! Professional, kind, friendly and with GREAT photographs from every shoot abounding! 100% recommend!! Don't pass up an opportunity to shoot with Cukini Studio!
Michael and his family are excellent to interact with, as well an an overall joy to know! I have been a big fan of Cukini Studio's photography for a while now, and it has been a dream to have some photos taken! Highly recommend this studio!

Michael and Kathy are always a joy to work with and produce beautiful results in a timely fashion. I am constantly amazed by their work and creativity!
Cukini Studio was very professional during every aspect of the shoot. He knew exactly how to get the shots I wanted and was very conversational throughout. Working with him is very fun and I would definitely recommend him!
Cukini Studios is an amazing studio to do unique and entertaining photos. Very reliable and Professional, and Safety is always #1. Cant wait to do more photos and learn more in the future.
Michael's photography is top-notch, and his demeanor with clients is polite and friendly. I love to do shoots with him whenever I get a chance!
We had worked with Michael on our engagement photos first. Due to our busy schedules, we had to settle for a less than pleasant time of year. I was sure we were wasting our time with a gray and dreary day but he was able to pull off a series of photos that had people commenting on how great they were and how he captured our unique personalities. We rehired him for our wedding photos and we came away with several stunning photos. My favorite memory and photo from the day was taken on the roof of a building. We snuck away to catch the sunset and snap some photos, which gave my husband and I a private moment to just be together on our wedding day. I didn't know it at the time, but that would be one of my favorite moments-and we have the picture to prove it!
Cukini Studio is by far one of the most incredible photo studios I have ever worked with. I adore them. I have a difficult face to light due to my skin tone and bone structure, and they always manage to keep me from having awkward shadows on my face in my pictures (: I did a couples shoot with Cukini Studio, and they went above and beyond to make my boyfriend and I's photos beautiful works of art. I love how creative they are; they push the envelope and go beyond cookie cutter photography practices. They want to project your vision, but will guide you and not leave you alone to figure it out. Michael also happens to be one of the most down to earth easy to talk to photographers in the area. If you're looking for someone who is going to be easy to work with, and not make you feel morally uncomfortable in any way shape or form, he's your guy. I would 10/10 recommend using Cukini Studio for all of your photography needs (:
