It’s pronounced JUH-lee-ah…

Just in case you were wondering.  Now that we’ve got that cleared up…

Hey there!  I’m so glad you found me.  I’m Linda, San Diego wedding, family and event photographer.  If you had told me several years ago that I would be a photographer, I wouldn’t have believed you. I went to college for social work, but once I had kids, my plans changed. It was through years of documenting their childhoods through photos that I honed my craft and eventually became good enough to do it professionally. While I may not be saving the world, I’m making a positive impact on the lives of my clients. Whether it’s capturing the raw emotions of a wedding day or the precious milestones of little ones, creating family heirlooms that’ll be cherished for generations to come is every bit as meaningful. I love being a San Diego photographer!

Now for some other fun facts!

I’m a Vietnamese Amerasian (shout out to my fellow half-Asians!) and a thin-crust pizza kind of girl.  Growing up in a Vietnamese household meant that I got to eat as much ph as I wanted. Don’t be jealous!

My favorite things to do is get together with friends (especially when karaoke is involved), go hiking, and pin recipes I’ll never get around to making.

I’d love to get to know you. Looking for a San Diego wedding photographer who can capture all the beauty and emotions of your special day? Then look no further! I’m an experienced and passionate photographer who brings an expert eye, and a friendly and caring approach to every wedding I shoot. Let me help you create cherished memories that will last a lifetime! If you think you’d like to have me as your own personal cheering section at your wedding, or if you just need some updated portraits, drop me a line and say hi.

My people...

My husband is my biggest supporter and fan and the one most likely to have a homemade meal waiting for me when I come home from a long day at a wedding.

My kids are the reason why I got started in photography.  I wasn’t very good about filling out baby books so I documented their childhood by taking photos instead. I have them to thank for finding my passion (or if I’m being perfectly honest, obsession). So it only seemed fitting that I name my business after them.

My furry co-conspirator

Our part Maltese/terrier rescue dog, Ranger.  He helps me cull images by giving a paw up or paw down and will work for walks around the park and treats.
