Imagine a perfect day where…

You have more time to focus on the things you enjoy. Like talking with new clients, working on your marketing, or hanging out with family.

You have a backlog of visual content for months ahead of time. So you can plan out your social media to fit your launches or new products.

You aren’t wondering, “Does this photo fit my aesthetic and company vision?” Every photo matches your branding.

All of this is possible!

It all starts when you decide to take the next step in your business and hire a professional photographer.

Hi there! My name is Angelina Hong.

Originally from Minnesota, I came out to the Bay Area where I graduated from Stanford University with a BA in Human Biology. Several years out of college, I quickly realized that my heart and passion lied in photography.

As a bi-ethnic (Hmong & Korean), queer, woman, and a daughter of an immigrant father and a refugee mother, I am working to utilize my creative strength to subvert the commercial and mainstream industry by showcasing BIPOC and LGBTQ people in my work. Do your values align with mine? Let’s chat!

When I’m not shooting, I enjoy hanging out with my two cats (Jax and Yunie), practicing Muay Thai, and eating anything that comes from a potato!


“Angelina planned ahead, thought about what her client would need, and made plans based on our goals. All her photos really capture the texture, feel, tone, and ambiance of whatever she’s shooting, be it food or event. I would recommend Angelina as a photographer to anyone looking to hire someone with an eye for visual narratives and the ability to fulfill client needs and goals with minimal guidance and maximum creativity.

Angelina is very easy to work with and at the same time very professional. Her turnaround time is also impressive – a sign that she prioritizes the client’s interest and needs. I plan to hire her again for my next event!”

We loved working with Angelina. She was professional, personable and productive! She styled a number shots (which is a total bonus!) that came out great and was still able to complete our shot list in a pretty short amount of time. She also captured a lot of moments of connection that I thought were really great.”

“I enjoyed working with Angelina. Her final product did a good job in capturing peoples’ interactions and connections, the land and space we were at, and the food. I would recommend Angelina’s services to folks who work in food in any capacity (restaurants, food businesses, organizations, events, etc). What sets her apart from others is she understands food beyond taking a pretty photo. She understands how food plays a role in all parts of our lives.”
