• Welcome to our blog.

    Thanks for visiting our blog. This blog is for An and I to express ourselves personally as well as professionally. Some say that you shouldn't mix the two but we enjoy making new friends more than running the business. For every client we shoot, we feel like we've made a friend for life.

    I am a Dallas based wedding and event photographer. Together with my wife, we offer you a very [unique] and catered look. We combine multiple styles of shooting and post editing to go above and beyond. We shoot you [candidly] to make sure your emotions are pure. We frame you [editorially] so your images are magazine ready. And lastly, we tell the whole story thru our [photo-journalistic] approach.

    Please, stay awhile, get to know us and leave a comment or two.

    Chi & An ^_^

The Trans: Come fly with me.

A warm smile from Chloe and soft cheeks from Bella, all we’re missing are the wings.

Chloe had me running up, down and around like an NFL wide receiver.   I run faster, but she darts around unexpectedly like fish.  I figured out pretty fast  it was pointless to chase her.  Somehow she ended up chasing me and it all worked out nicely.

Bella stayed latched to her dad and gave me the most tender looks.  It was like capturing slices heaven.

Thanks for reminding me I need to get back into the gym.  I truly had a blast.

 



Wedding Albums

Throughout the day and at random times, Logan snuggles into my lap with his favorite book and I immediately know its quality time.  We go thru each page and he points out every detail, color, animal, shape and number.  He reads the few words on every page with excitement as I echo in approval.

In a single book, we see 2 stories.  Logan remembers every item in that book and I remember the time and emotions I felt while with him.  He loves this book and I know why.  This is his special book.  He loves it and more importantly, I love that.

My photography has always been more about emotion. And with that emotion captured, I transfer it to print so that one day, you can also sit down with your spouse, family or friend and have some quality time.

 

Here are just a few options to choose from

  • Book sizes: 8×8, 8×10, 10×8, 10×10, 11×14, 14×11, 12×12
  • An array of cover options: Classic black, Cocoa, Pearl, Cherry, Brushed Champagne, Chestnut, more..
  • Paper choices: Photo Luster, Photo Metallic
  • Binding options: Panoramic or Split
  • Imprinting:  Front Cover and/or  Spline in Silver, Gold, Blue or Black.

Family: My BFF.

Truer words have never been spoken.  A totally gorge day outside.  I stopped for a moment, closed my eyes and felt the warmth of the sun on my face, the cool air so crisp as I take deep breathes and the sounds of kids laughing and playing.  Here’s 2 reasons to live life.

Hero cant walk on inclined surfaces, so Logan offers a helping hand.

Thoa and Chuck's Wedding: New Orleans – more photos » Chi Tran Photography […] but I felt happy and heartbroken at the same time.  Happy because it’s like seeing an old friend again.  And heartbroken because I should’nt have left my friend in the first place.   As […]

The Meehans: Dallas Arboretum

If we sat down and talked about things that naturally attract,  what one thing brings a family together more than anything else?  I would have to say, kids.  Kids are born with a gravitational pull that seems to brings all generations together.  We orbit around them in our own special way and they shed a warmth that cant be measured in Celsius or Fahrenheit.

Meet the Meehans, Jon, Michelle and Logan.  Together with Michelle’s brothers and sisters, our goal was to surprise her mom with a family portrait.  The only thing better than this would be to have her mom be in the pics as well.  But that would take out the surprise part of this shoot.

This entire shoot was like being at a comedy club.  Everyone just doing their own thing, laughing and goofing around.  As a photographer, I couldn’t ask for much more.  Thanks again Michelle for a great time.  Your family is beautiful and I hope your mom looks at these pics for many many years to come.

 

 

 

 

Thoa and Chuck: Deep Ellum E shoot

Thoa and Chuck, matches and matchboxes,  PB & J or chicken and waffles, when you see one, you’ll probably see the other.  Ok, maybe not the chicken and waffles, but that’s another story for another time.

Meet Thoa and Chuck.  They are officially engaged and tied together by love and that snazzy scarf.  Resistance is futile my friends.  Buckle up, grab a glass of milk with your PB & J and enjoy the start of your lives together.

Here are just a few of my favorites from this shoot.
