"Exceeded my expectations"
"We could not have asked for a more perfect photographer, Lan: you well exceeded my expectations and captured everything so naturally and we could not be happier with the outcome! We will definitely keep in contact for many photographs to come"
"Very friendly and professional"
"Lan Nguyen did a great job at our last minute elopement ceremony. She was on time, listened to what we wanted in the shots, and was super speedy with the turnaround time. She was very friendly and professional...She was patient with getting our wild and frowny 3 year old daughter to warm up, and she captured some silly moments too!"
"Captures people's personalities"
"Lan photographed a few events I've been to and I really loved the results! In between the highlights, she's great at capturing those moments you don't think about until you go through the pictures. She captures people's personalities very well."
I was awarded 3rd place in the Kay Kreighbaum Memorial Photojournalism Contest (2014) for my concert photography of Neon Trees' live performance.
I also contributed photos to a gallery that was awarded 5th place nationally in a contest by the Associated College Press (2014).
Additionally, my photojournalistic coverage of a Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration earned me recognition as a "feature photographer" on Exposure.co.
