Stanley | Photographer & Artist

stanley headshot 0003

Hailing from San Francisco and now based in Los Angeles, Stanley is a full-time portrait & wedding photographer who creates timeless and artistic works for his clients. Having started photography in 2012, Stanley combined his passion for capturing the dramatic landscapes of the great outdoors with creative storytelling in portraiture. The result is a unique style of environmental portraiture that combines multiple elements from landscape, portrait, and fine art photography. His ultimate goal is to create a beautiful narrative for his clients to love and to keep for a lifetime.

Apart from the business, Stanley keeps landscape, travel, aerial and creative portrait photography as a personal craft – he takes his camera with him everywhere around the world. His dream is to open up an art gallery when he is 60 to display a curation of his life’s work. As for the present, Stanley very much enjoys his life in LA, full of good boba, coffee, acai bowls, and of course, your friendly neighborhood traffic.

I’d love to connect with you sometime! Feel free to reach out by email anytime – the contact form links to my email, or by phone or text during the daytime 🙂

After graduating from UCLA with a major in Economics and minor in Film and Television Studies, Esther obtained a certificate in Interior Design and also completed a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University. She currently holds an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist license and practices in Los Angeles.

The one thing that Esther is really passionate about is working with people. Through her various positions over the years, she has gained a wealth of experience with event planning, coordination and management. From business trade shows, corporate events and parties, award ceremonies, and academic conferences to birthday parties, showers, celebrations and weddings, Esther has more than a decade of combined experience. She finds the planning process endlessly exciting and invigorating – it fills her heart with joy when the hard work pays off and ideas come to fruition, letting her clients and their guests relax, be present, and enjoy the moment.

Esther can often be seen on photo sessions and events with Stanley, assisting with equipment and attending to clients, whether it’s straightening hair, adjusting wardrobe, helping with posing, or telling jokes. Behind the scenes, she helps with album designs, online content creation, social media marketing and many other unnamed aspects of business.

On her own time, Esther likes to spend quality time with friends, travel the world, cook at home, and catch up on her favorite shows on Hulu & Netflix.

Esther is an extrovert, and she loves meeting new people. You’ll see when you meet her 😉
