Hello, I'm Khoa /kwa/

I'm here to help you achieve the dream vision for your wedding, preserve every fleeting moment, and make this experience enjoyable!


I'm Here For You!

Your photos should be all about the genuine moments that make you feel - the little quirks, dirty boots, messy hair, all the gut laughs, and ugly cries! All made up for a beautiful love story and will always remind you of how much you love each other!
Whether you're having your wedding surrounded by friends and family or just the two of you saying vows on the mountaintop, I'm with you!
I'm not just another vendor but a friend on your big day and the help you can count on through this planning journey.
I want to capture your story with 110% energy and celebrate with you these special moments!


Behind the camera

I moved to the States from Vietnam a few years back and am so lucky to call San Diego my new home!

I love all things weddings because witnessing couples' happiness brings me joy and fuels my creativity.

I want to create photographs that can stand the test of time so couples can relive their day years from now and for generations to come.

Let’s hang out, tell me your story and create something beautiful together.

A Little Bit About Me

Life Is A Great Adventure!

I love spending time outdoors sleeping under stars and my clothes smell like bonfire!
I'm incredibly grateful for being able to experience life and do what I do!

This is Bubu, my group of college friends who traveled all over the place with me and showed me what friendship really means. Coming from different backgrounds but we always respect and be there for each other. Our college life includes many late night talks, gut laugh group studies, skipping classes for road trips, all made up for a good time!


An Experience Changed My Life

Back in 2010, I biked around Vietnam for a month for a volunteer project in this bike and I'm eternally thankful for this journey. Through this experience I was just fascinated by human connections and friendships I made along the way.
It’s giving and helping others that make my heart so full.

My love for nature has grown deeper since I moved to the States. It’s always been my go-to when it comes to seeking comfort, clarity, and inspiration. Whenever I feel stuck, this quote's always on the back of my head “may your search through nature lead you to yourself.” - Mt Woodson


Live for Experience

Experiences over things for me on any day. Forever grateful for all the experiences I've had, crazy decisions I've made, and wonderful stories come from those. It's what makes life richer in every way.


Fun Facts

- I have been collecting stamps for over 20 years now and still going strong!
- I love sending Christmas cards and keep them forever.
- Love love love snow, yeah I love it so much!
- If I had to choose mountains or beach. I'd say I'll start from the mountains then down to the beach after crossing the desert.


What's the Experience Like?

My Husband and I found Khoa by chance and I am so very happy we did. Khoa is a gem of an individual who went above and very far beyond to make our day as special as possible. Aside from the fact that our photographs came out better than I could have ever imagined, he was professional, prompt, organized, enthusiastic, a great communicator and most of all - fun. He made Adrian and I feel completely comfortable during our post-wedding shoot and it made all of the difference. We would highly recommend him.

Our daughter was married a week ago and I cannot sing the praises of Khoa and his team enough. They were there from hair and makeup before the wedding until the sparkler send off. Constantly moving, always professional and fun to be with. The sneak peeks we've seen are absolutely stunning and we couldn't be more pleased. I would recommend Khoa to everyone without hesitation. Thank you for making such an incredible day even more so with the memories you captured. We love you!!!

We are blown away by the quality of Khoa's work. He is an incredibly bright soul who is passionate about the art of photography. He takes a lot of pride in his work and it shows in the high quality of his photos. Anyone can take a photo, but not everyone has the skills to make you say "wow" and he also makes the process so much fun! We highly recommend working with him, for both engagement and wedding (and beyond)!

Khoa is absolutely fabulous! We were just married three days ago and he was just as wonderful. My entire family and wedding party absolutely adored him. He surprised us with a few sneak peek photos and they are magazine worthy. We can't wait to see the rest! We made the best decision choosing Khoa and we are so happy to now call him a friend! We love you Khoa!!! Thank you for capturing our most perfect day!

Wow. Words cannot express how wonderful it was to work with Khoa. We don't need to tell you that his photos are absolutely stunning-- go look at his website for proof of that. What we do need to tell you is that Khoa is an absolute gem of a human being, rolls well with the punches, is calm during the chaos of a wedding, and goes to ridiculous lengths to get that perfect shot. You would be lucky to have the opportunity to work with him.

Once again, thank you SO much for capturing all the special moments of our special day! Working with you was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. You really went above and beyond to make sure we had something beautiful to look back on, and we can’t thank you enough for that. You’re truly talented and a professional at what you do, but even beyond that, you’re just wonderful as a person. We’re so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with you!

Khoa is a true artist and has a natural gift in photography. From our engagement session to our wedding photos he outdid himself. I don't believe anyone else could have captured our day as beautifully as he did. Not only is he the best of the best he is such a nice friendly person with a big heart. We shared many laughs with khoa and enjoyed getting to know him as a person.

Let's Connect!

I truly value connections. I don't want to be a vendor on your day who shoots and leaves. More than that, I want to cherish your big day with you, be there to witness and capture your once in a lifetime memories. I want to do it as if I would on my own wedding!

Let's hang out, tell me your story and enjoy a bottle of wine or a cup of coffee together!
