Photography is my passion. I do not only take wedding photos but also do portraits, landscapes, and street photography. This section represents my perspective on how I see the world through the lenses.

I'm 31 and I'm doing wonderful.

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.

Thank you Thank you

Thank you everyone for coming for lunch. Thank you Abhishek, and Jess for making this happen perfectly.

I feeling it was another Wednesday Night hangout that we used to do in college. Time flied. We all are now adult and moved into cities trying to pursue the life goal we set.

The party wasn't on my birthday because I had a consultation and a wedding to shoot. I know I know. I would rather make money and had a party on the next day. haha

This is my fifth year in the state and my life style changed a lot this year. I started traveling and investing in myself.

Early this year, I had a new year count down in Chicago, spent time during the spring break with high school and college friend in NYC and Boston. I visited Colorado twice with Jessica and one more time last week with my photographer friends. I was in Washington for 6 day visiting 2 national parks. I had so much fun.

It's like a tradition. Whenever I see Abhi, he will need a new Facebook profile picture.

We did some photo shoot after we left the Dallas.

5 years is a long time. I was talking with Abhi last night and we had a very interesting conversation. Abhi is now leaving after 5 years in the state. He could apply for a working visa but he decided not to. He knew if he got the visa, his life will be chained to this job in this state for at least 6 more years. He wasn't sure that was the right path for him. Therefore, he decided to pursue higher education.

I frequently asked myself what I'm doing here in the state. Am I just having fun taking pictures and earning money? Am I leaving my family behind in Thailand? I feel like a guilty pleasure. 

Anyway, I'm building up my wedding portfolio and be ready to work anywhere!

FYI, I'm sad that Abhi is leaving. :/

If life were predictable it would cease to be life, and be without flavor.
