ABOUT ME

WELCOME!

I was born and raised in Việt Nam, spent my college years in the US and France, and now live in West Chester, Pennsylvania.

I like very few tunes, but I adore Andrew Bird music. His instruments enlighten me and his words color my mind, so that I don’t look at the sky only seeing “zeros and ones,” but play coder of twinkling eyes and crinkly smiles.

I love languages and learning to express myself in varying terms. I love the feeling of wholeheartedly understanding an expression in a language when no translation can carry the same meaning.

To me, photography is a complex and multidimensional language. A photograph is a text that evokes different interpretations and feelings from different eyes and hearts. My job is to create not just a beautiful photographic document, but also a unique expression of who you are in a way that can’t be translated by memory and words. I want you to be able to wholeheartedly relive the important milestones that you treasure in your lives.

MY PHILOSOPHY

I think of photographs as fibers that weave together the fabric of your memories, storytelling instruments that narrate different chapters of your experience and little trinkets that embody the highlights of your life journey. As a photographer, I would absolutely love to help you gather these keepsakes through my lens.

For my photographs, I love colors that are bright but placid, tones that deliver a statement while preserving their subtlety. I search for a light source that illuminates and compliments the complexion of my photographs. I also play with the camera’s angle – sometimes a simple turn of the camera can transcend an otherwise uneventful perspective.

I like to capture the intangible cues of relationships because I think they speak volumes to human connections. I also seek visual hints of personalities. I think you’re the most beautiful and enchanting when you are completely and unreservedly yourself.
