Meet the Photographers
Dai-An (pronounced like "Dye-Un")
He is known for his wit, sense of humor, and ability to put clients at ease. He has an innate ability to capture heartfelt moments beautifully. Dai-An understands people. He believes that everybody has a story that deserves to be told through photography, no matter who they are, no matter their race, class, creed, sexuality, or beliefs. His immersion with diverse audiences has given him the opportunities to meet and explore the struggles and successes of many. This exposure to varied experiences finds its way into his photography.
In his own words ... "All things and people have a great story behind them. They all offer something unique to capture, giving me endless stories to tell. To find their narrative, I enjoy watching and listening, conversation and interaction. I believe the right photo can leave an everlasting impression. When working with subjects such as people, pets, and nature, I find that sometimes the best photo comes from being patient in order to watch the subject connect with their environment. A camera offers me the opportunity to capture the essence of these subjects in an instant so that we can share and cherish them forever."
Auco (pronounced like "O-ka")
She is known for her skill in creating unique compositions for her clients. Her images jump out because of their honesty, understanding, and ability to tell a story. She cares about what her clients want in a photograph and excels at capturing specific moments anyone else would miss. No moment is ever dull in Auco's eyes, and she always has a blast finding great shots.
In her own words ...
"I received my first camera at the age of 13, and I pretty much have not stopped taking pictures since then. I love to take photos for many reasons: to inspire, to flatter, to educate, to remember, to capture fleeting moments that will never be seen again, and to see the smile on people's faces when they view my photos.
To me, every moment in life is significant and it should be captured because memories last forever. Every moment is meaningful, and I strive to capture those moments in the most beautiful way possible.
I'm also naturally able to quickly capture those challenging on-the-spot moments that you wouldn't expect. Sometimes I feel like I have an eagle's eye for moments that are out of the ordinary, which is what I believe great photos come from."
