"We worked with Winnie for our engagement shoot, and it was a fabulous experience from beginning to end. She was flexible enough to accommodate our last-minute request for a snow-shoot, and she made sure I felt beautiful and that my fiancee felt comfortable enough to be himself on camera. I've known him for 8 years now, and that is no easy feat! The photo shoot was a joy and our pictures came out AMAZING. We are very grateful!"  -- Meghan Bechtel Lin        

"As an actor, it's important to have great headshots to catch a director's eye. Winnie photographed my headshots and I love them. I look natural in them because she helps you relax and be yourself. Winnie is a fun photographer who is focused on making sure you look great in the photos and have fun in the process. I've gotten so many compliments on my headshots from directors and friends. I've gotten many auditions and roles because of them." -- Ashley Dakin

"From our first maternity photo shoot to a second session with our wiggly 7 month old, Winnie captured the spirit of our miracle. Winnie, you captured our emotions perfectly and gave us momentary access to something rich and beautiful! Thank you!" -- Collins and Jared Zimmer


"We worked with Winnie in a holiday mini session. We knew we had a mere 30 minutes to capture some family photos of myself, husband and 9-month old baby. Baby Benjamin was especially cranky that day, but despite that Winnie captured some beautiful, candid moments of our family. She has a comfortable, easy-going way and makes you feel immediately at ease. We were very happy with our final photos and already booking her for Benjamin's 1st birthday!" -- Elisa Koch

"When we asked Winnie to take photos of us in one of our favorite neighborhoods in the city because we always wanted nice pictures of us in the city where we met and fell in love, we knew we were getting someone who was creative and fun to photograph us.  What we didn't expect was how easy and comfortable she made us feel despite how nervous we were (and how cold it was outside in December!).  I warned Winnie that we would need help feeling and looking natural in our pictures because we had no clue how to look good and natural when we were obviously being photographed by someone.  Also, we had given Winnie an idea of what we were hoping for but I was a little nervous that it wouldn't turn out the way I wanted.  I must say, Winnie exceeded our expectations on all levels!!!  She made us feel so comfortable and she gave just the right balance of direction and freedom to be ourselves and as natural as possible.  We loved working with her and we love the outcome of the pictures!  They're actually our favorite photos of us because she was able to show our personalities and our love for each other in such an effortless way!  Winnie, you are amazingly talented!  Thank you!" -- Silvett Garcia-Tsuang

"I had the pleasure of working with Winnie Shih for my DJ portraits. Winnie is professional and takes amazing photographs. She is able to make you feel relaxed and comfortable, so that she can capture the essence of who you are on camera. She has the uncanny ability to use natural lighting and textures to highlight your natural features and make you come to life. It was a pleasure working with her and I would definitely use her again." -- Jaynemarie Angbah
