I am Daniel Tiu and I was born to love the camera! My interest in photography came at a young age and quickly grew with a strong passion to capture and inspire through a camera lens. Combining a mix of photography techniques, I work closely with clients to create exceptional images to reflect their interests. I specialize in different types of photography including weddings, commercial and landscape. My wife, Elaine, also works hand in hand with me as a professional makeup artist. (E.Makeup)

1. When did you start your business and what was your inspiration?

I started my business, Daniel Tiu Photography, 10 years ago and have expanded my work to more custom and specialized photography. I get my inspiration from all things around me. I see the beauty in everything. I feel very blessed to be able to do that.

2. What makes your business different from others?

My photography reflects the nature of capturing the treasured moments in all their cinematic beauty, but also bringing out the emotions of the day. Clients who book me want my creative eye and my unique style. They like the way I see life through the camera lens.

3. What is the best part of your job?

I like the flexibility my work allows me. I don't work 9 to 5 and I don't work in the same place all day, which works well for me. I also like the creative expression my job allows me.

4. What do you hope to achieve with each wedding?

That I have great communication with the clients to understand their needs and expectations and to have a great time with them on their wedding day.

5. What was your most memorable wedding?

Every wedding is memorable. All weddings had different cultures, venues, guests and weather. All these factors created challenges for me that test and build up my creativity which in turn creates wonderful memories.

6. Words that you live by?

Don't take life too seriously. Enjoy every moment.
