Meet Stephy Nash of Stephy Wong Photography in Inland Empire and San Diego

Today we’d like to introduce you to Stephy Nash.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Stephy. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I like cake and long naps on the couch. Why Wong you ask? It’s my middle name… which I hid forever until now! I just said embrace your Asian-ness (is that a word?).

I have been shooting people (with my camera) for over 10 years and I have had the privilege and honor to shoot the most wonderful amazing clients and their beautiful engagements, weddings, maternity and family photos! If you really want to know what it’s like to work with me go to http://home.stephywong.com/the-experience/ check out the experience of the behind the scenes in action (do it… you know you want to). I have always taken photos of people, families, friends, myself (before selfies were a thing) and thought someone should pay me for this… capturing memories to look back on later was always special to me since I can remember. My Dad always made it a point to take a photo or video clips of me and my sister when we were kids so we can laugh at ourselves later in life. As an adult, I know why that was important now and can have an impact on you and your family members. I like to post teasers for my clients… because mostly, I’m impatient and want you to see how fabulous you rocked the day. I like my relationships with my clients to be more like a friendship.

I married my meant to be partner Mike in Hawaii and have 2 fur babies that like to tackle you and fart. In this union, I also inherited 3 crazy stepchildren who make us, the family we are! In my spare time, I paint acrylic paintings on canvas, watch Friends and sing karaoke (I’m a Filipino, what do you want from me!) 🙂

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I decided after 7 years, to take a risk and re-brand an already successful company, as my previous brand no longer represented me. The struggle of being one of thousands of photographers in Southern California is a challenge in itself alone. How will I stand out amongst everyone else?

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Stephy Wong Photography – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I specialize in portrait and wedding photography. I’ve dabbled in everything other categories, but decided these are the ones I wanted to put my all into. I am proud of the fact that when potential clients contact me whether they call or they email, they recognize that I’m not like everyone else. I constantly get people who will start laughing as soon as they voicemail picks up (you should call it and find out what they’re laughing about) or the fact that I tell it like it is on my site. That’s who I am, what I want, what I’ll give you, take it or leave it. I’m not for everyone and I’m ok with that.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
I plan to keep shooting memories for weddings until I’m too old to walk. At this time, I have no big changes as I’m still getting adjusted to my new brand. I have been traveling quite a bit for weddings which is exciting. Work and vacation in one? Yes! Tax write off.
