Meet Akiko Liu

Today we’d like to introduce you to Akiko Liu.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
I have always done photography – but always as a hobby. I’ve taken few weddings and had some fun photo shoots with friends many times. However, it wasn’t until about a year and a half ago I decided I wanted to pursue this as a full-time career.

I find joy in connecting to my photo subjects (mainly couples for engagement/wedding) and photographing their beautiful moments together. I have been lucky to have amazing support from my husband and friends, and not to mention the gorgeous backdrop of many LA scenery!

Please tell us about your art.
I am a photographer – I hope to capture each person’s unique characteristics rather than going by the books. I find great enjoyment to just sometimes chat with my subjects to get them a little loose so I can capture them at their truest. My hopes are that I am able to capture their moment to keep for a lifetime!

How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
At the moment people can see my work through my website, and social media outlets such as Instagram.

Do you have any advice for other artists? Any lessons you wished you learned earlier?
I still don’t think I’m great enough to give other people suggestions just yet – but I think the key is to continue to engage with your clients. I have learned so much from them and have formed some lifelong friends!
