KC was stellar to work with – super easy, professional and really took charge during a chaotic event. It was also great that she was able to respond to our request last minute, took the time to listen to what we needed on site, and in just a couple hours of time produced some fabulous work exactly to specification. I definitely recommend her photography services for other corporations looking to document events and would be happy to work with her again myself.

KC Chen took wonderful photos of my architectural project and I am totally delighted. The detail, lighting and photo angles are perfect. I am using them to show my work on FaceBook, Houzz, and my web page. I am so happy with the results and the homeowner is too. I can highly recommend KC.

Authenticity is what we strive for when we create videos for our customers. So when we work with organizations and businesses, we don't force people to read a script or a teleprompter. Instead, we focus on asking the right questions to get the most authentic answers. In the backend, we work our magic to make your words come together fluidly. We create videos that will weave together written and spoken words with images (still or motion) that will create a cinematic feel for your audience.
