Amanda Wong

Fashion & Portrait Photographer

It’s hard to explain how I ended up here, but photography was the only thing that was there for me when no one else was. In the summer of 2011, I picked up my camera again after 4 horribly uninspiring months. I signed up for an account on modelmayhem and surprisingly got a few requests and emails which helped me kickstart my “photography career”. While I thought my journey with photography had ended after some personal problems in my life, it had really only just begun. I started a Facebook page and in the next few months, I met so many great and supportive people whom I can now call friends.

Beautifuladieu turns 3 this year and I’m so grateful for all the opportunities that have helped me grow as both an artist and a person so far. The name Beautifuladieu [byoo-tuh-fuhl-uh-doo] serves as a constant reminder to myself to treasure the transience of life, to appreciate its beauty before it’s gone forever. I mostly shoot fashion and faces, and I want to capture all the magic there is while the moments last.
