My name is Angelina Hong.
I am a photographer specializing in food and people, specifically food entrepreneurs, small to medium businesses/organizations, creative individuals, and passionate couples. I am based in the San Francisco, Bay Area but I also accept work in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area.
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.
I am a bi-ethnic (Hmong & Korean), queer, woman. I am a daughter of an immigrant father and a refugee mother; and these identities not only influence my work, but they affect how I see and interact with the world.
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 detailed and gets to know her client better before starting work. She is very professional, she asks the right questions, and she has a great personality! Everything went amazing. I’d recommend her to anyone looking for a food photographer!”
