"You MUST hire this amazing woman to capture any special moment in your life. Working with Yumi has not only had my most favorite day captured but she is now part of the family. Every single step into finding her, connecting with her, and working with her to make my dreams come true was truly magical. Yumi, thank you for making me feel like we were sister's sitting on our beds dreaming up my perfect wedding. There's truly no one like you. You're not just a photographer, you take all your clients into your hands and give them the best experience possible. I'm so glad I found you. Anyone who is hesitant in hiring Yumi, please know, that once you hire her, there's no going back, You will have a friend for life."

"Yumi is absolutely fantastic! Our discovery of Yumi through Instagram while searching for a wedding photographer was an incredible stroke of luck. Among the many photographers in San Diego, her captivating Sunset Cliffs photographs truly captivated us. Crafting a personalized wedding package, Yumi's unwavering attention, communication and support were a true blessing especially during the stressful wedding planning moments . She seamlessly accommodated our schedule, delivering our cherished photos precisely on time for our invitations and prints for the wedding reception.

Yumi also has so many different poses that she can give a couple to do so they wont feel nervous about what to do behind the camera. She gave us some of the best pictures we will cherish forever. Everyone at our reception loved how friendly and fun she was to work with. If you are thinking about hiring Yumi, DO IT! You will not regret it."

"Coming from someone who feels camera shy, Yumi really helped to guide me and and my husband during our bridal shoot. She is great at providing encouragement and guidance and her personality allows for capturing authentic moments. We were referred to Yumi from another photographer and after reviewing her portfolio, we felt confident in her abilities to capture our best moments together on our wedding day. Thank you Yumi!"

"I’ve always believed that some people are born to do some certain things in life. Yumi is the perfect example of someone who was born to do this. Yumi excels at bringing the perfect energy to your photo shoot session and does an amazing job at making you feel comfortable through out the whole session. I myself am a little introverted when it comes to posing for pictures for I’ve never done professional photo shoot sessions but Yumi made me and my fiancé feel as if we have been doing this for a while! She does an excellent job at capturing every little moment throughout the whole shoot. Her friendly energy truly does make the whole photo shoot session a remarkable memory. She went far and beyond at helping me surprise my girlfriend with the proposal during the photo shoot and I truly believe that no one else could have done a better job at helping me plan and capture the moment. Not only did we get the perfect moment captured, we made a friendship with Yumi that will last. Thank you Yumi!!"

"Yumi was not only professional but she made you feel like you’ve known each other for years! We were so comfortable with her while at our shoots and had so much fun with her at our wedding! As much stress as it is to plan a wedding, she was there to help out, release some stress and just let us vent! We appreciate EVERYTHING she did for us. We can definitely say Yumi not only captured AMAZING pictures but became a friend to my husband and I! We will definitely be booking with her for all of our future events! We love you Yumi!!"

- Yvette D.

"Yumi came highly recommended by a coworker, and we could not be more thankful we found her! We hired Yumi for an 8-hour coverage of our wedding day. She was very communicative from the first meeting all the way until after she delivered our photo gallery. We appreciated how organized, thorough, and energetic she was. My husband and I had the best time hanging out with Yumi and her second shooter the whole day! If you’re looking for a photographer who will listen to what you want, and takes great pride in her work, look no further and book Yumi! The photos of our wedding day turned out stunningly, she truly captured the most magical moments throughout the day and we will cherish this gallery forever!"

- Danielle M.

"Second time working with Yumi & she never disappoints! She did incredible on my graduation photos over a year ago & then my fiancé hired her recently when he proposed! I’m so happy she was there to capture this moment. She is so welcoming & fun to work with. Looking forward to having her capture our wedding!"
