We had the good fortune of connecting with Khoa Nguyen and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Khoa, what is the most important factor behind your success?
One of the most important factors behind my success is always seeing my clients as people as opposed to a deal or contract. I have always taken pride in the relationships that I have built with all the clients that I have worked with and in some situations we have become great friends. I am a very compassionate and understanding person and I work with all my couples in times of hardship. When it comes to my photography, I love to capture special and candid shots that help tell their true love story. I enjoy getting to know my couples and having them feel comfortable with being themselves during their photo session. Seeing their personalities shine through the lense is why I enjoy doing what I do.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Getting to where I am professionally was not easy. I was working a full-time job and working on my business on my time off. Work-life balance was a real struggle for a few years until I decided to pursue my passion full time. That came with its own set of challenges. With all of my time being focused on my professional career, I can now push the boundaries of my creativity. I have seen a tremendous growth in my photography style. What I would like to share with the world is to be real, be kind, work hard, and prioritize the personal approach. Building trust is very important.
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
Visiting artistic places filled with historical charm and architecture makes the top of my list. A city worth seeing in CA is San Diego. Not only does is have great historic locations like Downtown. The buildings are awesome but the food is amazing as well.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to dedicate my shoutout to Nayra from NPD Events. I have worked with NPD events since I started my professional Wedding Photography business. We have grown a lot together and continue to work on many events.
