My name is Sean. Sean Choi. A hybrid Korean-American from New York currently residing in the salty city of...well...Salt Lake City.
My journey into photography began at a young age as my godfather placed a camera into my hands when I was 7 years old. He instructed me to use the entire roll of film to tell him a story through the pictures taken. This experience sparked a passion that would carry through a lifetime.
Since then, I’ve developed a personal understanding of the power of images. They are able to capture emotions and spread inspiration within the bounds of pixels. Today, I specialize in weddings, portraits, conceptual, and taking photos of anything or anyone with a vision.
I feel that the pristine beauty of the Earth that we live in cannot be harnessed by a mere camera. The human body and its perfect design cannot be given the proper justice through a lens. Life and all of the emotions we’re able to feel cannot be captured by a single image. But, an experienced photographer can come close.
For example, there is this shoot with Dylan & Heather Hill. Our time together, from the beginning with engagements and until the sparkler farewell at the end of their reception, was noteworthy to say the least. I recall a distinct moment when we parted ways moments before they got into their getaway car. We were able to share a few hugs with each other and reflect on their wishes for a dream wedding coming true. It was bittersweet but at the same time, unforgettable.
So back to the account from my youth. Yes, holding a camera is an empowering feeling. We, as photographers, have the opportunity to accentuate the best qualities of the people we take photographs of. This results in a personal connection with our clientele as taking photos has the capability to create a bond and a friendship that will last for years to come. I hope we get to meet each other soon.
