I believe that everyone is beautiful because they are loved. Come meet me and see for yourself.
Shang. Pronounced like “Shung”. I create photographs that are full of color, energy, and personality. I am a storytelling artist who will help you relive those precious moments. My photography is a mix of photojournalistic moments and beautiful and creative portraits. My aesthetic is modern – I love buildings with interesting architecture, clean and forward-thinking design, and beautiful, flattering light. I moved to New York City to be with the love of my life. I mainly work on Sundays. My focus is on wedding and lifestyle photography.
Just like your wedding, you want your photography to be an unforgettable experience
I’m not a photographer for everyone. I’m a photographer for people who pursue their deepest passions, laugh out loud, travel the world, give hugs, and believe in love. I don’t trust people who don’t like to smile. I put in over-the-top attention and service, because you deserve it. I become your friend, so that your photos become a genuine portrayal of what matters the most. I believe that the most beautiful photographs are of moments, not things.
Accolades from others
My photography has had the honor of being published in many well-known national wedding magazines and blogs, but the greatest praise I can have is the happiness of my clients. Read more raving reviews of my wedding photography work at Yelp!
A note to overseas and international clients
I am based locally in NYC. For those visiting the wonderful city of NYC, I have had a lot of experience in photographing international clients. Please note that while I am ethnically Chinese, I photograph in a modern, American style with an emphasis on natural emotions and expressions with natural lighting. I do not photograph in the pose-heavy style that is common in mainland China.
And some random things…
1. In a different life, I’d probably be the sassy frontwoman of an alternative rock band while wearing fuschia heels and leather wristbands
2. I eat A LOT! I am a huge foodie. I’m a sucker for $1 oyster nights and most salty foods. I do not like chocolate, coffee, or tea.
4. I really, really believe in the power of love
