Wedding/Conceptual Portrait Photographer
Hi, my name is Jimmy Bui (like "buoy" that floats in the ocean) and I'm wedding/conceptual photographer based out of Southern California. Photography is my calling, well, to be honest, it's my second calling. I was an elementary school teacher (5th/6th grade) for about seven years, and after my last year I decided to make a career change. I dabbled in film production first before I found that my talents were better suited in photography. I paid my dues, learned the ropes, and became a professional in a couple of years. Like teaching, I approach my work in photography with the utmost devotion, while at the same time having as much fun as anyone can. Two of my favorite things to shoot are weddings and conceptual portraiture. The best thing about my job is being able to see an idea come to life after conceptualizing it in my head, and as for weddings, I'm a romantic at heart, and being able to witness and capture two people on their most important day is absolutely amazing.
I am currently focusing only on Weddings, Engagements, and Commercial work at this moment. Maternity sessions are on a seasonal basis.
