Taking pictures should just be a lot of fun. I got into photography as a sixteen year old who enjoyed derping around with her friends + a camera. I still like derping around with friends + a camera. Photography is really a love project for me. I’m a full time student and I don’t have […]

Real Lyfe Derp Photos

I have extended family in Michigan and they introduced me to Sae Jong Camp when I was thirteen. It’s a week long Summer Camp for Korean-Americans by the beautiful Lake Higgins. After my first year, I was hooked and came back every Summer after. We recruited the rest of the family, and soon Sae Jong […]

Korean Camp 2018

I love Christine. My darling friend from Berkeley got this dope computer science internship at Amazon in Seattle. So naturally I had to go to Seattle, too. I had an amazing time adventuring with this even more amazing human. I was able to get into all these Amazon buildings that aren’t open to the public […]

Christine & Caili in Seattle

Being in college is great. Being an adult is great. You can go on a spontaneous weekend trip to visit an old friend in another city. And you don’t need to ask permission from anyone. One of my darling best friends, Caity goes to school at Claremont McKenna. I haven’t been to SoCal in years, […]

So please enjoy the not-so-magazine-worthy, […]

Escape from Alcatraz

During labor day weekend, for the first time, I went to New York City! You probably wouldn’t expect a photographer to say this, but I think people take too many pictures. People are always pausing for the iPhone, and I feel like itโ€™s distracting from actual experiences. For this reason, his trip was a little […]

Welcome to New York

It’s been 1 year since I shot my first wedding. I was 18 years old and had just graduated high school. I had photographed my high school friends, but I had never photographed a couple and I had never photographed a wedding. I wanted to change that, so I posted to Craigslist saying I was […]
