Hello There!

You can call me Mr. T, short for Thy. I am a Bay Area based photographer.

My style is simple, classic, and timeless. It’s my goal to capture plenty of candids of you and your loved ones. I will explore all the natural light available surrounding us and will also complement them with additional lightning if needed. Let yourself loose and allow me to capture all the beautiful images of laughs, unscripted and real emotions and tears of joy.

Photography has been my passion for many years now and I love every moment of it. What I enjoyed most is seeing the smile on my clients face more than the photo itself. It’s what I crave most and what’s keeps me going.

Outside of photography, I enjoy staying at home and cuddling with my family while watching our favorite TV shows. On my personal time, I love working out and playing basketball for the cardio. :)


I'm happily married to a wonderful wife with four little brats that drives me nuts everyday. They are my pride and joy, and everything I do... is for them.  So here I am starting my little side business in photography at an affordable price for everyone. ;)

Photography is my passion.  I love to create photographic moments that are timeless and film-like style.

The biggest mistake people make in life is not trying to make a living at doing what they most enjoy.

My Gears

The camera doesn't make the photographer, but having the right equipment sure can help out a lot by making it easier to take a creative shot.


my cameras

My primary camera now is the new Canon 5D Mark IV.  This camera is amazingly good at shooting in low light conditions and is very fast for all type of action shots.

My backup camera is the previous model, the Canon 5D Mark III.  This has been my work horse for many years and it will still be used for a long time.


my lens

Almost all of my lens are prime lens, which are fixed at a certain focal length to get the best results.  I love shooting wide open from f1.4 to f2.0 to create that dreamy bokeh that gets everyone in awe! Love it.

Canon 35mm: The perfect wedding lens!

Sigma 50mm: The best all around shots for almost anything.

Sigma 85mm: My most used lens for portraits.  Love this baby.

Canon 70-200mm: The only zoom lens that I use and works perfectly during wedding ceremonies when you want to be hidden out of the way and taking great close up shots!


my lights

Mastering lights is going to take a lifetime and I'm looking forward to it.  It was scary at first, but now I'm slowly adjusting to how I can use it effectively and creatively.

I've now switched over from Speedlites to Profoto B1 & B2 along with all the other accessories for light modifiers such as softboxes & umbrellas.


Thy is a great professional and really helps to make you feel comfortable while photographing (which is not an easy thing). He was also flexible to accommodate one last minute headshot session and delivered the photos the same day.

Thy Sok did an amazing job with our Engagement photos this last month! During the photo shoot Thy was great at taking the time to make the right shots and work with us to make it look natural! I highly recommend Thy!

I cannot thank Thy enough for the beautiful pictures he captured of my daughter and her friends for Senior Prom! The pictures definitely show how truly talented he is. Not only is he great at what he does but he’s also a pleasure to work with. Thy is very professional, but still keeps the atmosphere fun and comfortable. The shots were amazing and everyone had a fun time. We even got our pictures the next day! So if you’re looking for someone who can deliver outstanding photo quality, along with creative, fun and unique shots, Thy is the man to go to.

I really can’t say enough good things about Thy. If you are on the fence in booking ... just book it!!

I did a pretty large family session with 10 people... one being an 85 years old and not very mobile and a very rowdy 2 year old. He managed to get a prefect picture of all of us... all the kids looking forward and smiling... seriously a miracle!

He also did lovely combo pictures of just certain family members together along with individual pictures. I have great pictures of just my husband, my kids and I. Christmas card pictures... check!!

If you can believe this, people were impressed that he somehow captured us as our best. Everyone I have showed the pictures were wowed about how good I looked in them. Ha!

I love love the pictures he captured of us.

He is also very funny and he got along with all 10 of us. It felt like he was a great friend of the family taking our pictures. He really made everyone feel very comfortable. My parents and in laws even told me how wonderful they thought he was and let me tell you that is a big big compliment.

Also Thy is super responsive!! I emailed him a lot and he got back to me in minutes sometimes! He is just really good at answering questions and getting back to me very quickly.

We will definately book him again to capture more memories of our family.
