Freddy's Frozen Custard Architectural & Interior Shoot

May 25, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
As architectural is one of my favorite things to shoot, I was so excited when Freddy's Frozen Custard called me about a photo shoot for their new McDonough store. In addition, this was the very first project after I got my new Canon TS-E 24mm 1:3.5 L II lens, so I was even more excited and couldn't wait to shoot. To shoot Freddy's exterior lights...

May 24, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
When Terrica called and said that her baby girl has grown up and it was time for a mother & daughter portraits, I suggested to do this mini shoot outdoor at a near by park. I knew the fresh green background would pop their beautiful complexion, and bring out their bright smiles. So off we went to the park for a mini shoot. I arrived early to walk a...

Trinh+Chris engagement shoot in enchanted Montaluce

February 15, 2014  •  2 Comments
It was a rather cold December in Georgia. Sky was gray and the atmosphere was moody. I was hoping to catch a little golden light in the sunset but it was very unlikely. Trinh quietly said, with a very soft tone as usual, "It's okay. I like the barrenness of Winter." She has been one of my dearest friends, more like a sister to me, since we first me...

Lisa and Colton's Dream Beach Wedding

February 11, 2014  •  Leave a Comment
Driving into St. Simon's Island was like entering another world. Massive live oaks with elliptical leaves, Spanish moss leisurely swinging in the hot Southern wind. GRACEFUL. Almost nostalgic. Scent of ocean reminded me of my home town in Japan. And there was this sense of time slowing down...This place is like a fairytale, so perfect for beautiful...

GOOD IDEA! - Square Card Reader Pocket

September 29, 2013  •  Leave a Comment
Many entrepreneurs including photographers use SQUARE to process credit card payments for their clients. I am one of them, and I carry my SQUARE CARD READER with me all the time. I wanted to find a little pouch to put my SQUARE CARD READER, so it won't be damaged inside of my purse or shooting bag, but didn't want to spend a lot of money for it. Af...

All About Him Ministries

September 28, 2013  •  Leave a Comment
Earlier this month, I had a privilege of doing a photo shoot for All About Him Ministries, a traveling family that preaches and sings gospel/bluegrass. When I scouted the location, I found some spots with morning fog and glorious sunrise, and was quite excited about the shoot. We also rented a very old chapel, full of character and authentic feel....

One Sunday Morning...

September 11, 2013  •  4 Comments
One Sunday Morning, I drove around the country area and found this magic spot... charming red door, field basking in glorious morning sun, sparkles of morning dews, tiny spiders' artistic webs slowly emerging from the rising fog. I love morning golden hours. It's different from the afternoon light. It is fresh. It is like a butterfly in my stomach...

Introducing....a new crystal USB drive!

August 10, 2013  •  Leave a Comment
Until recently, our wedding packages included DVDs containing the images from their weddings (image resolution depending on individual package). I am thrilled to introduce a new product that will replace the DVDs; a beautifully crafted, crystal USB drive in an equally sophisticated box! My bride will be happy to receive the images from their memora...

Morgan & Moses Engagement Shoot

July 28, 2013  •  Leave a Comment
I was sitting in a local Starbucks, waiting for a familiar face and a new one to appear through large window. Morgan is one of my daughter's very good friends since high school, and she was introducing me to her fiance, Moses, to talk about our engagement shoot plan. When Moses walked in, following Morgan's bright smile, I immediately had to look u...

Bringing old photos back to life

July 01, 2013  •  1 Comment
This photo of a man with an amazing lingcod was taken back in 2005 in Ketchikan, AK. If you read my last blog post, you know that I am a person with paradox. I love old, nostalgic photos in their organic state, and I also love images with modern effects applied to add mood or drama. So I played around with this and another photo from his fishing da...

To be more than just another photographer who is as good as so-and-so

April 26, 2013  •  Leave a Comment
I once read an article of a photographer that was being interviewed in a magazine, and there was a simple but profound truth that stood out to me out of many things she said. She said something like all photographers are basically the same after a certain level of photographic skills, and that only thing that makes a difference in client's mind and...

Paradox and liberation

April 17, 2013  •  Leave a Comment
Inked "f/22" on my left arm, "f/1.2" on my right arm on last Saturday. These two f-stops represent who I am as a paradoxical person, who has two opposite sides of many things. My mind works like f/22. I view the world like looking through a pin-hole sized aperture of f/22, trying to capture every single detail. I often think and try to focus in o...

CANCER. What does this word mean to you? It is one of the most hated, devastating diseases in our lives. We all know someone who is dear to us that is affected by this horrible disease. How do people find hope when they are told they have cancer? Beyond stigma that comes with this diagnosis, how do people survive emotionally, physically and financi...
