Portraiture

Katy Jessen | Fresno, CA | June 28th, 2011


Katy and I go way back! I used to give her snare drum lessons back when I was in high school and she was in Jr. High. So when she mentioned that she wanted some photos taken to help her with the Miss California USA pageant, I gladly said yes! Check out these awesome photos and be sure to support her by visiting her fan-page.

Katy, you’re an amazing girl with a big heart and I wish you the best in your pageant journey! May the Lord bless you and all that you do immensely!

 

 For this shot, I threw my camera up in the air to get a different angle on things while Katy spun around. Props to Mike Larson, who does this regularly at weddings around the world!









Cal Poly Graduates | San Luis Obispo, CA | June 2011

Well well well! It’s been a pretty hectic month of June! I had the privilege of shooting for a number of Cal Poly grads. Instead of my normal outdoor sessions, we decided to move indoor and get some nice portraits with their caps and gowns. Even though we shot at different times and dates, I’ve lumped them all into one post so you can see them all at once!

Congratulations to Catherine, Hanh, Heather, Lei, Sarah, Stephanie, and Wayland! May God bless you abundantly and guide you as you move on to the next phase of your lives!


























Stephanie Ng | San Luis Obispo, CA | April 24th, 2011

I had a blast spending the early evening with my friend Steph. She’s graduating from Cal Poly this June so we wanted to capture some nice memories of her time in SLO. Check out the photos below!

Here’s a little sneak peak of Steph’s awesome grad shoot! More to come later this coming week!

April Cao | San Luis Obispo, CA | March 16th, 2011

I was totally blessed to spend some time out by the San Luis Obispo Mission again with my two friends April and Patricia. April graduated from Cal Poly this quarter, so we were out trying to capture some fun memories of San Luis Obispo! The sun was out and the ladies looked great so anything ugly in these photos is totally my fault. Anyway, check them out and be sure to leave some comments. Congratulations April!













Heather’s Birthday Surprise | San Luis Obispo, CA | March 15th, 2011

So I got this message from my friend Marissa saying she wanted to put together a special photo shoot for our mutual friend Heather’s birthday. I was super excited to be able to participate because I’ve seen how hard Heather works to serve others and to put others before herself. What better way for me to show my appreciation for her than by giving her this photo shoot? I took her and the roomies out to the San Luis Obispo Mission and took some amazing photos showing their fun and loving relationship. Heather was delivered to us blindfolded and afterward we delivered her blindfolded to another group for her next surprise! We had a blast! Can you tell?










Thomas Kanesaki | Fresno, CA | July 18th, 2010

I just finished up a 2-day marathon with Thomas! We got some great shots for his portfolio. I didn’t get a chance to process these much, but here is a sneak peek of what’s to come:

CCF Graduates | San Luis Obispo, CA | May 28th, 2010

Congratulations Cal Poly Chinese Christian Fellowship’s Class of 2010!! It’s been awesome getting to know each one of you over the last 4 or 5 years. May God bless you richly as you go forth from here to be used for His glory elsewhere. – Verent

Daniel and Rosanna | December 10th, 2009 | San Luis Obispo, CA

Daniel and Rosanna are awesome friends of mine with a passion for God that I admire. I had the joy of spending an hour or so with them. Unfortunately, it was dark and rainy outside, but we still managed to get some great shots of the two of them together!
