I am a firm believer that coffee is always a good idea, although I love my mini keurig --nothing tastes better than a steaming hot pour over ;) We'll get along just fine if you're outgoing, loving and not afraid to get a little bit dirty!
My biggest inspiration and why I became a wedding photographer is my silly, sweet and loving daughter
Winter. It all started when I had her in December of 2011 and just wanting to capture every single milestone which my work attracted family + friends, and it just blew up from there.
To this day, telling love stories lights my soul on fire, literally. I'm obsessed with capturing a wedding day and watching it unfold so beautifully. I'll be there to pour your drinks, pinning boutonnieres, carry your wedding dress train and so much more. I'm not much of a dancer but I'll get right in the center of it all, capturing all the feels on the dance floor!
If I'm not chasing the golden hour or hanging with my couples during sunset, you'll find me out and about with my favorite people, Kong and my daughter Winter. We love spontaneously taking road trips and jammin' to our favorite songs, exploring the outdoors, hiking and we travel for FOOD!
To help ensure your day flows smoothly, I'll be there to chat in and capture every moment!
After one too many coffees, I'll be buzzing with energy to capture one of the most important, memorable days of your lives, I won’t miss a moment.
I'll document the getting ready prep through to the ceremony, reception --the champagne pops, dancing shenanigans and all the fun. I’ll be there in the center of it all or as a wallflower behind the scenes, photographing moments and details, especially those that go unnoticed!
With a blend of formal poses to mostly candid shots, you'll get a gallery of unforgettable and timeless images to cherish! Of course, I'll step in when you need guidance.
My photography journey started shortly after having my baby girl, Winter in December of 2011. All I wanted was to capture every moment and every milestone and I did just that!
I practiced and practiced as much as I could, learning the ins and outs of photography. I loved that as my daughter grew, I was able to capture her personality so well. This attracted many of my friends and family to capture their family + love stories! My approach is connecting with my clients on a deeper level, making sure I document honest, genuine, and candid images.
To be completely honest, I'm not like all the rest. There are many elements to my approach of storytelling, with a blend of adventure and delicate movements, your images will always be romantic and authentic.
Connecting with nature and humans inspire me --I always learn something new from other's, whether it's their experiences or perspective on life. It helps me connect so much on a level that inspires me to capture those fleeting moments that go unnoticed or blurred motion which ignites nostalgia.
It's truly fascinating what a camera can do. It's simple and reliving your wedding day is something so priceless so please invest in YOUR day and YOUR legacy!
Growing up in two different cultures gave me so many different perspectives in life. Just a small town Hmong girl from Wisconsin --being taught traditional norms in a Hmong household and also adapting to American culture. I think it's such a beautiful thing and I've learned to truly embrace who I am and what I love. As introverted as I am, I can't take myself too seriously all the time, binging on my favorite shows. Can you relate?
I absolutely love the mountains, exploring and always planning my next mountain or desert hike. My boyfriend and I travel for food so we do lots of research to find hot spots (always down for ramen and spicy noodles!) --this means if you'd prefer to get married somewhere away from your hometown, I'm YOUR girl!
That’s a little sneak peek into my life and a few of my favorite things. It's incredible being able to share stories from all over the world, we're all so unique yet so similar in ways. And that’s why I LOVE documenting love stories (and hopefully yours too!)
"Even with the pandemic Xee was so responsive and willing to meet with us. We are so happy with the pictures and are glad we chose her to capture our day! You will not regret booking her for your special day. Overall amazing pictures, amazing person, and she made our day even more special!!."
Wild Love Pursuit was the perfect photographer for our wedding! My wife and I loved working with Xee on our special day, She was very professional and very helpful, has great ideas, a good eye and was always where we needed her. We definitely will recommend Wild Love Pursuit to everyone we know!
The day of our beach wedding turned out to be a pretty windy , and she just rolled with it and made sure we had beautiful photos! We also had a pretty untraditional wedding reception, that didn’t have the common structure and she had no problem adjusting to what we needed! We can’t thank her enough!
Xee did such an amazing job on ur wedding! She was creative, helpful and fun! We have already recommended her to others! We also received the best package with our photos and files in, all personalized, so wonderful!
No story is one and the same.
Let me tell yours.
