Behind every camera is a storyteller...
Meet the Storyteller
Hi there! Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Alvis Pham and I am the founder of AP Photography. I recently graduated from the University of California Irvine and I've been doing what I love ever since. I still find myself going to remote locations to take landscape photos whenever I get the chance and I recently picked up film photography!
"Wait what? You're still in college? You're only 22 years old?" Those are probably some of the most frequent questions I get when talking to new clients it's still hard to believe that just 4 years ago I was a broke college freshman who decided to take out a small loan to buy some camera gear after wanting to get more serious about my photography. It probably wasn't the smartest thing to do at the time (given I had like $2 in my bank account) but to this day it was probably the best decision I've ever made.
Before all the weddings, engagements, and other shoots I do now, I started off with graduation shoots. Luckily it was around graduation season when I bought my camera. A dozen or so graduation photo shoots later I realized how much I loved doing photography and I knew that I wanted to make it my career. I knew the journey wasn't going to be easy, but that didn't matter because as long as I was behind a camera, I was happy. I offered to shoot weddings & engagements for free to build my portfolio, built a website, and spent all my free time trying to become better than I was the day before. I followed my passion without thinking twice and it has taken me around the world all while allowing me to witness one of life's most beautiful moments.
My Travel Video
Of course, I love to do personal projects along with my travels! I never go anywhere without my trusty backpack and camera. I'm constantly thinking about my next project! Passion will do that to you. I'm always looking for ways to improve my craft. I'll sometimes find inspiration and the most random moments and I always have to act on it. Inspiration is a beautiful thing and I can't let it go to waste (even if its 4 a.m and I'm tired from a long day of work).
Our photography team is based in Garden Grove, California. It is our goal to provide not just a professional image, but an experience to remember. We believe that any photoshoot, whether it be a family, wedding, or engagement photoshoot, should be a memorable and fun experience for everyone. When shooting your event, we will bring out all of the emotion, laughter, expression, and love in you with each and every photo. We strive to capture moments that cannot be replicated. We want to connect with our customers to create long lasting bonds that resemble a friendship. We've covered weddings from various cultures such as Vietnamese, Indian, Jewish, Hindu, Greek, Middle Eastern, and many more!
In the end, we pursue perfection by focusing on the composition as well as the emotion conveyed in the image. We want each picture to tell a story. You should be able to look back at a photo and remember exactly how you felt in that moment.
