Nhi is fantastic - I highly recommend her if you are looking for an amazing and talented photographer! She made our photoshoot fun and enjoyable, and the photos are unique and beautiful - my family and I love the portfolio she created! Nhi also provided us with great tips before the photoshoot regarding wardrobe choices and location. This was fantastic as we knew exactly what to expect and were able to choose a beautiful setting for our photos. I wish I could give her more than five stars! Thank you, Nhi!

Nhi is beyond talented in what she does. She made me feel very comfortable and was such a pleasure to work with. My photos turned out beautifully and I'm beyond happy! My experience with her was nothing short of perfect.

If you're looking for beautiful photos while also having a lot of fun taking them I would 110% recommend Nhi. My experience with her was nothing short of perfect.
We asked Nhi to shoot headshots for a group of 70 and simply could not be happier with the results. She was professional, flexible, and above all, produced incredible photos. We worked with 8 different photographers in different states and Nhi is by far the best we have worked with.

My kids are pretty energetic and unpredictable, but Nhi managed to capture the best of them in a short time. We are lucky to have Nhi in town. Thanks, Nhi - for your generosity and helping us make a beautiful memory.

Our family had such a great session with Nhi. My kids are pretty energetic and unpredictable, but she managed to capture the best of them in a short time. We are lucky to have Nhi in town. Her rates are an absolute value as she is as organized and skilled as the high end pro's that charge 5 times more. Thanks, Nhi - for your generosity and helping us make a beautiful memory.

Nhi is one of the nicest people I've ever met hands down! She is so much fun to work with and made me feel super comfortable. Nhi is an incredibly talented photographer and I would recommend her for all your picture needs. 😊

Nhi is one of the nicest people I've ever met hands down! She did my college graduation photos and made the experience a lot of fun. She is so much fun to work with and made me feel super comfortable. She also has such a wonderful and caring personality. She was super fast with getting me my photos back and they turned out amazing! Nhi is an incredibly talented photographer and I would recommend her for all your picture needs. 😊

Nhi was not only good at capturing beauty with her camera, but also showed great communication skills: she made us feel at ease, and helped us draw out all the right emotions for the desired results. I highly recommend Nhi Thai Photography!

Getting our couple photos taken by Nhi Thai was really an enjoyable experience to me and my wife. Nhi was not only good at capturing beauty with her camera, but also showed great communication skills: she made us feel at ease, and helped us draw out all the right emotions for the desired results. I highly recommend Nhi Thai Photography!

Nhi was so kind and understanding. She exceeded all expectations. The photos are BEAUTIFUL and our family had a blast during the session. We can't put into words how grateful we are for these photos. Thank you Nhi!!

After scheduling our session, we found out that both of our dogs had cancer. Nhi was so kind and understanding. She had no problem changing location and day to be able to include our pups. With two energetic toddlers AND two labs, I knew this would be challenging for any photographer. But Nhi exceeded all expectations. The photos are BEAUTIFUL and our family had a blast during the session. We can't put into words how grateful we are for these photos. We will definitely be calling Nhi for any future family photos. Thank you Nhi!!

Nhi took beautiful pictures, pictures that we never thought we would be able to take! She helped pose us and made us so comfortable in front of the camera. I would recommend Nhi Thai to everyone.

Nhi Thai took my senior pictures with my two best friends. We are very un-photogenic so we posed a challenge for Nhi Thai. She took beautiful pictures, pictures that we never thought we would be able to take! She helped pose us and made us so comfortable in front of the camera. I would recommend Nhi Thai to everyone. I hope one day she can take more pictures for me!
I would recommend Nhi in a heartbeat! Not only did I feel so comfortable during my session (when I'm usually a bit self-conscious in front of a camera) but I also had so much fun!! Her photos are amazing!

We have had multiple sessions with Nhi and loved every single one of them. Not only is she an amazing photographer- she is super kind and just makes you feel so at ease (even when your baby is crying the whole time and your toddler is wild). Highly recommend Nhi!!

Nhi was awesome to work with! Nhi made sure we were ready and comfortable before we showed up for our shoot, and she kept in touch diligently after it ended. I can't thank her enough for our photos that we'll be able to treasure for a lifetime.

Nhi was awesome to work with! I booked her two years in advance for my local wedding because I knew I wanted to ensure I would have a photographer with her beautiful, natural, light style for my big day. Nhi made sure we were ready and comfortable before we showed up for our shoot, and she kept in touch diligently after it ended. She delivered our sneak peeks, blog post and the entire photo collection way ahead of schedule! I can't thank her enough for giving our family photos that we'll be able to treasure for a lifetime. I've already told my future hubby we will be going to her again in the future when we have new professional photography needs. Thank you, Nhi!

Nhi made the experience very enjoyable for my family. My kids were not necessarily on their best behavior, yet she was so patient and calm. We have amazing shots to remember this time in our family!

With Nhi's direction and suggestions on the day of the shoot, we were able to concentrate just on one another and were able to leave all the details to her.

My wish was for my daughter to feel pretty in her senior photos; her request was for only genuine smiles - Nhi achieved both. We could not have been happier. Our daughter chose to combine senior photos with family pictures. We were so grateful for Nhi's flexibility and the ways that she made the day about our senior AND her family. With Nhi's direction and suggestions on the day of the shoot, we were able to concentrate just on one another and were able to leave all the details to her. Every time we look at the finished photos that Nhi provided us, we have a new favorite. The keepsake photobook that Nhi put together is now Grandma's treasured possession.

Nhi was great to work with! Despite the craziness of our large family (half of which were young children), Nhi kept it all calm, cool, and fun! I would definitely request Nhi to do another shoot!

She really went out of her way to meet all of the individual wishes, as well as, get some great large family shots! I would definitely request Nhi to do another shoot!

I loved that Nhi took the time to get to know us before hand and it really showed in our photos. Our graduation pictures were everything we could have wanted and would recommend hiring her for any occasion!
