from past clients

"We were absolutely blown away by the entire experience. Not only are the photos stunning, but Xiaoqi was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the entire process.... Xiaoqi’s friendly personality put us right at ease and you can definitely tell how relaxed we are in the pictures!" - Meredith & Jake

"She was invested in getting the best shots, but ALSO she was invested in US. I am beyond grateful for these photos, because not only are they stunning (Xiaoqi is a photography wizard!)  but they truly capture the love, joy, and giggles of being engaged!" - Haley & Brecken

"It was like having a good friend taking your photos. Normally I don’t see myself as being photogenic but she made me feel very comfortable and beautiful in front of the camera. " - Geanna & Daniel

"Xiaoqi captured some of my favorite photos ever of my hubby and I. She had my hubby smiling - real smiles, not the fake “do I have to” kind of smiles. Not to mention she captured my favorite portrait of myself ever! She’ll make any self conscious girl feel like a queen." -Marissa & David

Your story = you, your better half, their best friend who's like an older brother, your best friend who's actually your sister, Moms & Dads, Grandparents, the coworker who insisted that you go say hi, the flower girls, your fur babies, the college roommates who helped you through the toughest all nighters, Aunts, Uncles, cousins - 

GOING BEYOND TWO

All the souls who have helped shape who you are.

I believe wedding days are about more than  just one relationship. It's about  all of them - all your relationships with your loved ones who have supported you all along the way, which is why I’m about telling the whole story. 

You deserve peace of mind knowing your story
will be captured
in its entirety.

I take on only select inquiries because it's so important to work with the right couples for me,
and for me to be the right fit for them.

Plus, DID YOU KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE GET MARRIED ON SATURDAYS? I very often have dates reserved in advance by 12-18 months, especially for popular dates.
