Kara's Modeling Portfolio

Published by in Modeling ·
Tags: brunettemodelportfoliokurtyphotographycompcardzedcard

Many people have dreamed to become a model, but it's not as easy as one would think. Besides the outer beauty and meeting the height and size requirement, a potential model has inner qualities, appealing character, and must be natural in posing in front of the camera.

Although it was her first time, Kara knew the rhythm of her body movement and was all natural during the photo shoot for her modeling portfolio. She even suggested to pose like Wonder Women, and I could see her super power within as she unleashed the energy. Funny that I had just watched the new Wonder Woman movie starring Gal Gadot, and I could see some resemblances.

We are so excited to introduce our new video showcasing some of our latest images. This is a one-minute short video that will be used for marketing on social media platforms. We thought about showing the video on the home page of our website, but we dropped the idea in respect to some viewers privacy as the music would auto play and create some unwanted attention. so we are showing the video here on the blog instead.

Kelly and Jimmy Wedding at St. Ignatius and Olympic Club

What a fun wedding celebration for Kelly and Jimmy who exchanged vows at St. Ignatius Church in San Francisco and danced the night away at the Olympic Club.

I began with Kelly the bride at the prestigious St. Regis in downtown. Most ladies already have their hair and makeup done, and the bride was just about ready. Heidy the second shooter began with Jimmy the groom at his condo with a gorgeous view overlooking the AT&T baseball stadium and Bay Bridge.

Jimmy the groom and I have something in common. He is the football coach for CCSF where I obtained a photography degree. It was such an honor to capture the couple as they tied the knot at the fully packed church witnessed by hundred of guests.

The Olympic Club Lakeside is one of my favorite reception venues for the open space and bright window lights. It is probably one of the largest golf club house in the nation in size.

The super friendly Olympic Club event coordinator Ava Chin took us on a golf cart and drove us to a scenic green by the ocean. We took some romantic portraits of the newly wed during the cocktail reception while the guests were happily mingling and enjoying the delicious hors d'oeuvres.

Lucky for the guests invited to the wedding, more food was brought in after the bountiful dinner of juicy steak, salmon, and shrimp. Right at 10:00 pm, the staffs pushed a cart full of buttery grill cheese sandwiches and hot dogs to the dance floor. What an exciting evening as the crowd danced along with the live band performed by Pop Fiction.
