LOVE & TOGETHERNESS portrait special

kyung jung

Happy Valentine’s day my friends~

This time of the year, I have a marathon of celebrations in my family. Both my boys have their birthdays, my wedding anniversary, plus my favorite St. Valentine’s Day all fall into the first half of February. Can you imagine how crazy is to handle all four celebrations in two weeks? Back to back birthday parties and gifts, cakes and goodies… all are fun, but exhausting at the same time! I am so relieved at least half of those are done by now!

What are the things do you do to celebrate Valentine’s day with your loved ones?

Sending messages of love and affection to friends and family? Gifting a meaningful symbol of love, like a beautiful bouquet of roses? Going out for a fancy lunch or dinner? A nice box of chocolates and delicious bag of black tea are my favorites to give and receive. Hand written notes with blueberry pancakes are the old time classic from my boys…

Whatever you do, what you want the most must be to be together and celebrate LOVE with them!!

This Valentine’s Day season, I am thrilled to introduce you a very special portrait experience at Yellowhale Portrait studio to do just that. If you are following my work for a while, you must know my style already. I am drawn to the images that are genuine and uncluttered. It was never about fancy props or busy backgrounds. It is always about the person in front of my camera. While I tried to create the most beautiful portraits that embrace the essence of the person and capture his/her genuine feelings, LOVE & Togetherness sessions were born. Uncluttered background and minimalistic (and flattering) lighting eliminate all the distractions. Every time you look at the images, you will be presented with the true emotion that connects you to the moment you shared. These portraits will bring the most honest beauty, character, and expression of the person you love. Many said that the images beams out who he/she is exactly and that was the moment that they want to remember forever. Because it is done at the studio, no cold weather or snow day matters! Not to mention the portrait special we are running now through 3/30!

If your little one had a recent birthday like mine, or if your 10th wedding anniversary is around the corner, or just because… LOVE & Togetherness session will be a perfect way to celebrate!!!

A Very Special Wedding

kyung jung

Today, I want to share a very special wedding with you. As I am watching the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan on TV, it was so beautiful to see the overflowing love and joy of the couple and the blessings pouring over them. I wish them the best on this wonderful journey, as you build their new lives together. What a special wedding it is! It is almost like a fairy tale - it is just so lovely to see them in love and surrounded by the whole world watching and blessing them...

As you all know, I am not a wedding photographer, but I had done a handful weddings so far for my family friend, siblings of my current client, and my own family members'. And today, I wanted to share my most recent and the most special wedding that I photographed last year. Just because the H + M's Royal Wedding brought me the whole memory of the most amazing day of my brother and his wife.

I know I am biased, my brother and my sister-in-law are the cutest couple to my eyes. Anderson House location was truly amazing to photograph my special couple in. More over, when we arrived there, the fascinating Solar Eclipse just started to happen and I was so lucky to capture the astonishing scene with this couple.

At first,  I could not tell what is happening with my bare eyes. It just felt extremely quiet, I mean there was no bird or any little critters movement at the time. When I start to look through the camera lens, I started to notice the shape of the shadow was different, and the color of the light was definitely cooler. I did not have a chance to discuss it with other photographers, but the shape and the color temperature of the light were dramatically unusual to photograph. I could say - it was almost like in mid day full sun, yet had a in shade temperature? The most amazing thing is that we did not plan this out at all. We had no idea the solar eclipse will happen at the time and date of his wedding when we schedule the wedding day and location a year before.

You can definitely tell the shape of the light that came through the the window is quite interesting. There are so many little croissant shape lights scattered all of the dance floor. I was asking myself, "How many couples in the whole world got the solar eclipse in their wedding pictures?" Indeed, it was a very special wedding because it was my loving brother's, but also it was the most unforgettable event I ever photographed with the Solar Eclipse.

Congratulations again to my brother and his beautiful wife! And of course to the prince Harry and Meghan for their wedding today!

Grand Opening Event ~ Yellowhale Photography

kyung jung

Last summer, we finally made a dream of ours come true: we opened our very own dedicated portrait studio here in Potomac, MD!

After sharing space with a wedding photographer for quite some time just north of DC, we decided that opening this new studio would be a fantastic way to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of being in business, and it was definitely a fun night filled with good food, and great people.

Our official Grand Opening celebration took place the evening of October 7, 2013, and included about three dozen guests.  Old clients were excited to see the new studio and meet the rest of the staff, and new clients from the local neighborhood welcomed us with open arms.

For three happy hours, we laughed & mingled, looked at photographs artfully enhanced by Chesapeake Framing, and enjoyed delicious concoctions from Georgetown Cupcake of Bethesda and  Macaron Bee, located in the Bookhill section of historic Georgetown.

Many favors were handed out, and prizes raffled off, thanks in large part to Doggie Styles, Inc., Daisy Baby & Kids, Bella Moda Salon & Spa, and MyGym in Potomac, MD.  Everyone loved the goodies, so thank you again for giving our Grand Opening celebration that extra special touch!

Guests enjoyed leafing through our Signature Coffee Table Book, getting nostalgic as they experienced a sweet baby grow from birth to one year old in pictures.  Other items that were a favorite to peruse were the Photo Jewelry and Mini Flip Books – always some of our most popular holiday gifts.

Of course, no one could pass by a large Canvas Custom Frame without stopping to enjoy it!

Guests were so impressed by the products and images shown that quite a few took advantage of the Grand Opening Special we offered that night, and booked plenty of Mini Sessions, Family Sessions, and even a Baby's First Year Session.

(We will be launching another special very soon, so make sure you sign up for our mailing list so you can find out what those will be, and when they will take place!)

However, the best part of the evening – by far – was the champagne toast!  

After all, who wouldn’t be thrilled to celebrate new beginnings with so many past, present, and future clients?

So now that you know we are officially open inside our brand new studio just a few blocks north of Potomac Village, MD, make an appointment to experience us!
