I grew up in Edmonton under a parent who fled the war in Vietnam as a refugee. He came to Canada not knowing any English, studied hard and made his way into becoming a Dental Lab Tech. He opened his own business while raising 3 children and provided me with everything to start my photography journey. He is my inspiration and reason for getting to where I am now. This is why my heart is so full when seeing small businesses thrive. My dad was able to support a family of 3 children and send us to post secondary. I know first hand how hard small business owners work, from watching my dad and owning his business, and how sometimes that could also take away from growing and spending time with your family because of the need to survive. He worked everyday sometimes without a day off. He rarely had vacations out of the province. My mom was just as busy teaching piano, Japanese school classes and helping my dad on top of raising all of us single-handedly as all her family lives in Japan.
When you support a small business, you are supporting a dream, and potentially a whole family. That is why AMAIRE&CO is a photography brand that has a purpose driven vision: when you support me, you are supporting countless other small local businesses. You will receive information and packets with gift codes and items from local businesses. You are the reason I love what I do, and you are the fuel that keeps me going. You are helping not just myself, but also so many others succeed in building sustainability and a life full of love.
Remember that you are so loved and appreciated.
NOT ONLY DO WE WANT TO PROVIDE YOU WITH AN AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHIC EXPERIENCE & RESULTS, WE WOULD LOVE TO CREATE A LOVING COMMUNITY THAT SPREADS KINDNESS AND SUPPORT TO THOSE AROUND US. WE HOPE OUR BRAND EMULATES THIS FEELING for each and every one of our clients

Clean, minimal yet elegant, bright and airy look. Images that shows action, evokes emotion, stillness and beauty in a moment of one's lifetime.
We love capturing what makes you, you. Cultural, cosplay, styled and more.
Sometimes there might be 2 of us shooting your session! (Most likely for full-day weddings) If that's the case - you'll likely get to meet my assistant in the business and awesome husband, James!
James enjoys cooking, good food, eating, and more food. lol!
He may or may not be holding a boba drink at one point in the day during a full day wedding haha (during breaks of course - he works hard ;)
* also * a note that we are especially experienced in Asian weddings (the ones with the door crashers, tea ceremonies, cultural activities/games, etc.) so if you're looking for a team well-adversed for a 13+ hour long day with the above - fear not! we've got you :)
This is our process:
I. Book the date.
Fill out our contact form, or e-mail email@example.com to inquire for a potential date! To finalize your booking, we get clients to read through and sign a booking contract & pay a deposit.
II. Take photos.
Once date is booked and deposit is paid, we will be in contact with you on what to prepare, what to expect, the vision for the session, etc.
III. Deliver memories.
Photos for lifestyle/branding sessions will be done typically within the week unless otherwise specified. Weddings and larger events may take between 4-6 weeks to deliver.
I am a huge advocate for local and small businesses and love meeting and connecting with the people in this community - they are some of the most hardworking and kindest souls I've ever met. I have hence, made it my mission to integrate a secondary purpose through my photography business, and that is to support other small and local businesses through gifting my clients with locally made/sold items and gift codes.

Yuki was absolutely fun to work with! She took my family's photos on 3 occasions already and they all turned out beautiful. I highly recommend Yuki. Her photography style is very crisp, clear, cute and colourful!
