|| WHY YOU? ||
Why me, you ask? Because I am extremely passionate about what I do and I take a bright, fresh approach that brings you and your loved ones to life in one still photograph. It’s not just about running a business or mindlessly taking a photo. No. It’s about taking pride in my work and making sure that it is the best quality I can offer you.
|| HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE? ||
Genuine. Happy. Warm. I'm always searching for genuine emotion and moments and they come through in my photographs.
|| WHY PAY A DEPOSIT ||
Requiring a deposit gives you the security of knowing that I am actively planning and personalizing your session and expecting to meet you and provide you with pictures you will never regret. This deposit allows me to confidently add you to my appointment book without any booking conflicts.
|| HOW MANY PHOTOS DO YOU TAKE DURING EACH SESSION? ||
On average, I shoot about 100-200 photos per session regardless of which one you choose. I want you to have a wide variety of shots to choose from.
|| HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A PHOTOGRAPHER? ||
I have been professional photographer for 8 years now and if anything, my love for photography has grown and is still something dear to my heart.
|| WHAT'S IN YOUR CAMERA BAG? ||
I shoot a Canon 5D Mark III and pretty much have a 50mm 1.4 attached at all times.
|| SHOULD I GET HAIR AND MAKE-UP DONE PROFESSIONALLY FOR THE SESSION? ||
Yes, yes, yes!!!!! You have no idea how big of a difference make-up makes during a session. Even if you don’t wear make-up often, make-up accentuates your features and shows up beautifully in photos in a very non-trashy, non-clownish way as long as you hire a professional to do it.
|| I'M NOT REALLY PHOTOGENIC... ||
I’ve literally heard that hundreds of times, yet I have yet to hear the very same people tell me that they hate their photos. Instead, they are absolutely ecstatic when they see their photos! Here’s why: I work very hard at making sure that you are comfortable and don’t feel too self-conscious in front of the camera. I also realize that each person has their own beauty and I look for ways to accentuate that beauty in the photographs.
|| IS THERE ANYTHING I SHOULD KEEP IN MIND FOR MY SESSION? ||
I often schedule my sessions later in the evening around 5:30-6:30PM because of the gorgeous, golden light around that time. This is also dinner time. I highly suggest that everyone involved eats or snacks before a session. No one is really in the mood to be happy when they’re hungry!
|| WHAT IS YOUR AVERAGE TURNAROUND TIME FOR PHOTOS? ||
Within 1-2 days of the session, I am able to give you a small preview of about 3-5 photographs. After that, I often ask for about 2-3 weeks for portrait sessions and 2-3 months for weddings to complete the photographs.
|| WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU?! ||
I am constantly asked this question but I don't mind! I am half Filipino and half Japanese.
|| So we’ve booked a session and have absolutely NO IDEA of what to
