About Mimi Nguyen:

Photography is such an amazing way to express ourselves - whether it is in front of the camera or behind the lens. My family and friends know that no matter where I go, I always carry a camera.

I believe that there is a story to capture in every moment, whether it is in a facial expression, an intimate look between a couple, a shared laugh among friends, a father wiping a tear while watching his daughter, or a twinkle in the eye. Some of the most memorable photographs are the ones that are most natural, which leads to my photojournalistic approach when it comes to weddings and sessions. I love watching the day unfold. Anais Nin once said, "We write to taste life twice, in the moment, and in retrospection." If only she knew that photography would allow for the same.

I am also greatly influenced by fashion photography, so a lot of this inspiration shows in my work. My background in arts and design also contributes in large part to my style and aesthetics.

My aim is to give clients a sense of who they are and what makes their relationships extraordinary, all while having a blast doing it! Perhaps they will see me through the photographs as well: a bit of spunk, boldness, chic and fun! At the very least, clients will be able to laugh at my brilliant jokes! ;)

Life moves at an incredibly fast pace, so I feel incredibly lucky to be able to freeze little moments in time. I feel very blessed to do what I love and love what I do, and I hope my passion and skills for photography and design show in my work!

I would love to hear from you! Please send me an email through the contact page to tell me more about yourself and what you are seeking. I look forward to connecting with you! Read less

I knew the moment I started wedding planning that photography was a priority and that choosing the right photographer for the job was crucial. And I did not go wrong by choosing Mimi. She was always professional, quick to answer, and was so easy to talk to.

I wanted a nature-themed engagement session and she quickly shot back with multiple beautiful locations to choose from. The engagement session was so much fun because she directed us in a way that was natural, easy, and uninhibited. The photos were given to us the next day and they were all perfect!

When it got closer to our wedding day, Mimi worked with my wedding coordinator to nail down timelines to ensure I was getting the most of the hours I had paid for. On the day of the wedding, her and her team arrived on time, got all of the shots I requested on my shot list, and did much more. She really wore many hats that day by making sure we stuck to our timeline, fixed my hair and makeup, even moved furniture around in our hotel room to ensure the best shots. Our wedding photos, all 1600 of them were amazing and it was so hard choosing photos for our professional album. When I look at the photos, it made me cry all over again because she captured the emotion and happiness of my day.

If you're looking for non-cheesy photos, perfect lighting, and a professional photographer, you will get that with Mimi and much more. I have wedding photos that will last me a lifetime.

Mimi is professional, reliable, accommodating, and great to work with. Neither my husband nor I have experience posing in front of the camera but Mimi made us feel comfortable during our engagement and wedding photos. Our pictures were beautiful. We really like her modern style of photography.

Mimi is one of the most incredible people I've ever met. Before I get into her photography skills, I wanted to highlight her as a person. Not only was she easy to deal with, to book, and straight forward, she made the whole day fun. She was inventive, she gave directions without being aggressive and she made both my wife and I smile.

Her skills as a photographer is rather amazing. Our pictures came out crisp and clean. A few friends who do weddings stated they would ask her for tips as they need to know what settings and how she shoots. She made boring shots rather amazing. She made plain street shots other worldly.

My wife and I are going to renew our vows in 2014 and we are only asking if Mimi can do it. She's someone who's made our special day much more special.

Mimi is everything you want in a wedding photographer! We were nervous to be in front of the camera, but she gave us directions and made us feel comfortable. She was always professional and organized. We received our proofs within 2 weeks and we couldn't be happier with the results. Our pictures are beautiful and we've received a lot of compliments from our friends/families. We were also impressed by the extra time she spent to get those last shots. Mimi is not only a talented photographer, but also a genuinely friendly person. I would highly recommend her, and look forward to working with her again in the future. Work with her, you won't regret it!

My husband is very into photography, so he's quite picky. We searched through many wedding photography websites and look through many reviews before we decided on Mimi. We just love her work and her artistic eye and combined with a very affordable package---she's a steal! She's especially good at the posed shots and also very fun to shoot with. She makes you feel very relaxed and takes time to understand your request. During engagement shots, She helps you with coming up with poses and makes you laugh so that the pictures has good composition and look natural at the same time. A lot of ppl gave us compliments on our engagement photos and asked who the photographer is.She's very creative and will go out of her way to get a shot done. On both the engagement and wedding day, she stayed longer to help us take extra photos---which we are so thankful for! Overall, we felt we made a great choice choosing Mimi. :)

Mimi Nguyen is such a GREAT photographer! She took both our engagement and wedding photos. On the engagement shoot, we were super nervous because we do not like to be the center of attention but Mimi made us feel VERY comfortable and made us laugh so many times. Her photos definitely captured our love for each other and we really appreciate it. On our wedding day, she captured more than everything that we could ask for. Looking at the pictures, we were like "wow, we did not see her take that or us!" Everything that she does is so amazing and we love seeing her other work. She is very professional and knows how to keep a panic bride calm ;) I would highly recommend her to friends and family!

Mimi was our wedding photographer this past August at Rancho Las Lomas and I have nothing but great things to say about her services. She did a wonderful job and everyone who has seen our wedding photos raved about how beautifully they turned out! Not only is she a great photographer, she's overall just a sweet and fun person to be around! She's genuine and easy to work with and it made our engagement shoot and wedding day go smoothly because we got so comfortable with her. She was also so patient with our dog Benny in making sure she got the perfect shot of him. She was one of our favorite vendors for our event and I would highly recommend her to any friend or family. Some friends got married months before we did and had issues not getting their proofs as promised...we actually got our pics back before them because Mimi is just on top of it and dependable! I would definitely hire her again for newborn photos someday soon. :)

Thank you, Mimi for making it such a memorable experience!

I decided to call Mimi after reading her profile on her page. You get the best of the person doing what he/she likes best. Mimi gave me a good price for what I asked for.
Mimi was very flexible to accommodate us as we had to change our shooting date.
Mimi helped us a lot on the day as we were nervous about posing in front of the camera. We appreciated her understanding as my husband suddenly got an allergy attack with watery eyes and sneezing nose. Mimi came to a rescue with tissue and eye drops, which showed how much prepared she was. the pictures are perfect, all we would ask for, and the settings are very romantic.
We are very happy and pleased with the quality of work received from Mimi and highly recommend her to everyone. We definitely will find her again for our next photo shoots

My fiance and I just happened to be in California for another wedding the weekend prior. On a last minute whim, we decided to see if Mimi was available. Good fortune was on our side because Mimi was available and willing to help us pull something together fairly quickly. Even though our photo shoot was on Monday, and we didn't really have a chance to meet until Sunday, Mimi agreed to meet us the night before and get to know us, listen to our preferences, let us describe our vision for the perfect look. Since we did it all on a whim, we quickly realized how unprepared we really were, but Mimi helped set us up with a makeup artists and gave us a few ideas on what to expect. When we first met up with Mimi on the day of the shoot, we were a bit nervous, but once we started shooting, we realized we were in good hands. Mimi's shooting style is efficient and her instrutions/guidance is to the point without being pushy or aggressive. She really knew how to make us comfortable, put our minds at ease, and help us to relax and capture our intimacy through the lens. Mimi always has a plan and is flexible enough to adapt to changing light or weather conditions without ever missing a beat. Mimi is very determined and focus when she's at work. Mimi sent us teasers within the first two days after the shoot, and we can't wait to see the rest. The photos we have seen are magical, romantic, and fun. They are exactly what we asked Mimi to capture for us.

I was lucky enough to win our engagement session with Mimi, and it was such a fun experience from start to finish. Mimi sat down and got to know us, shared ideas about our concept and helped us find the perfect location to shoot them. It was the FUNNEST PHOTOSHOOT EVER!!! And the pictures speak for themselves! Mimi was very aware of proper angles, lighting, and fun movement shots, that I feel she captured us in such a great light. I would definitely recommend Mimi, she is such an swesome photographer!!

Mimi Nguyen is truly an artist when it comes to taking beautiful pictures! From our engagement session to our wedding day, Mimi captured amazing moments of my fiance and I on our journey to becoming husband and wife. Afte seeing our engagement session pictures, we knew Mimi was such a talented photographer! And she is an absolute pleasure to work with! She is patient, easy going, and open to suggestions. She made us comfortable in front of the camera and it shows in the pictures! On our wedding day, Mimi kept things running smoothly so we could get all the pictures we wanted. She worked effortlessly through 3 different locations, and had us back at the venue with time to spare! The pictures from our wedding are gorgeous! The wedding party pictures don't look stiff, and the candids captured all those great little moments. Anyone who has had a wedding knows how very important these pictures are. You can trust in Mimi to capture your special day!!
