Racquel Natasha | DTLA

I’ve been shooting with Racquel Natasha twice already, and we’ve been knocking out several amazing shots that I really love! Our first shoot was in the Arts District, and then we decided to do our second shoot around the Walt Disney Concert Hall and The Broad. Check out her blog for more details of her outfits: Racquel Natasha.


Julia Friedman | Melrose Place

I’ve been following model/blogger Julia Friedman for awhile, and I was happy that she contacted me the other week to do a shoot with me. I had a fun time with her, and we definitely had good chemistry (We shot again recently in DTLA!). We met up on Melrose Place at Alfred’s Tea to get acquainted, and then did 5 looks around the area.

Atsuna Matsui | DTLA

Here’s a shoot I did with blogger Atsuna Matsui around the Walt Disney Concert Hall/ The Broad area. I always love this area for photos, there are so many spots to work with for different types of outfits and themes. See more of Atsuna’s outfit on her blog: Crossing.

Adventures with Ryan: Mr. Holmes Bakehouse Media Preview

I couldn’t believe that my favorite bakeshop in San Francisco was coming to Los Angeles! I really love Mr. Holmes Bakehouse but I hated going to the Tenderloin District in SF (the neighborhood is sketchy af). I was super excited when Andy and Jed invited me to the media preview for the newest Mr. Holmes Bakehouse location near Highland Park, or just 8-10 minutes drive from the Arts District (without traffic, duh). I went with my blogger friend Erika @erikadvm in between our shoots, and we ran into several familiar faces at the bakeshop (@lovejuliethai, @fabialamode, @msemkayvee). I also made some new friends there too (@indaheart, @_alyssamay)! We all got to pick out a couple of items and took lots and lots of photos. Everyone I knew that went to the event all admitted to not sharing any of their items with friends and family. It was that good! If you are a foodie or just love pastries and sweets, be sure to check them out if you’re in LA, SF, or Korea! It is worth the drive/wait!

Megan Lee | Abbot Kinney Part Two

Abbot Kinney has so many cute spots! There is the Love Wall, by far the most colorful and cutest art wall I’ve ever seen. vintage-havana-dress-abbot-kinney-megan-lee-hellomeganlee-ryanbyryanchua-2166 vintage-havana-dress-abbot-kinney-megan-lee-hellomeganlee-ryanbyryanchua-2214 vintage-havana-dress-megan-lee-ryanbyryanchua-2185

Actress/singer Megan Lee and I walked around a few more blocks and ran into these palm trees. We felt like we were in a movie set! Special thanks to Vintage Havana for these beautiful dresses!

Maria Sivakova | West Village

We’ve been trying to shoot for a couple of months now, but I couldn’t meet up with Maria Sivakova (@thelittlemodel_) the last time I was in New York and she was super busy the last time she was in LA. However, we made it work. On my very last day in NYC, Maria and I finally got to shoot. We met up in her neighborhood and shot around the area, which had a lot of cute spots like Tacombe. Van (@forevervanny) was also with us which made the shoot even more fun (click here). She was a pleasure to work with and I look forward to seeing her in LA or NYC, whichever comes first!

NotJessFashion | Chelsea

Here’s another shoot I did with my favorite blogger in the world, Jess @notjessfashion. We took this around Chelsea in between the Banana Republic presentation and Shopstyle Social House event. This bomber is super cool because it has “notjessfashion” in the back! Check out more details of her outfit on her blog: Easy Street.

Barbora Ondrackova | 7th Avenue

Barbora (@fashioninmysoul) managed to squeeze in a 2 look session before the fashion shows began. Luckily we were staying in the same area, so it was very easy to meet up. I just love shooting in NYC, the cabs and architecture really make all my shots more dynamic. Hope you enjoyed the shots! See more of my photos of Barbora: Vogue Haus.

New York Fashion Week | Day Four

My day began with an early morning shoot with Czech/German blogger Barbora Ondrackova (@fashioninmysoul) in Midtown. We both realized we were staying pretty close to each other, so it was very convenient to just meet at a Starbucks in the middle. After we had our coffee, we wandered around 7th Avenue for some good spots to shoot and found this awesome crosswalk!

Afterwards it was a quick session with the stunning Jasmine Tosh, who met me back at my hotel. And we basically shot around the hotel, it was pretty convenient having good shooting spots on where I was staying. Did I mention there was a laundromat around the corner that pretty much did all the washing and folding by the pound? Anyways, here’s this hottie Jasmine Tosh. More photos to come!

Then it was off to Tome at Skylight Moynihan.tome-runway-nyfw-ss2017-ryanbyryanchua-4140

I snapped some streetstyle right after the show! Actually was sitting near the Song Sisters so I told Aimee to wait for me outside for quick snaps.

Here’s Happily Grey and Damsel in Dior.

I actually ran into Cyn (@cyneats) and Brandon (@dopensteez) at the show, and Ariana Lauren joined me at my seat as well. It’s nice to see the ol’ SF crew!

Then Ariana and I went back to our old shooting ways.

After we parted ways, I met up with my favorite bay area bloggers, Jessica @Hapatime and Jasmine @LifewithJazz, for a quick shoot on the side of Madison Square Garden!

Then off to Jenny Packham! It was very impressive!

My day wasn’t over just yet. I did a quick shoot with Jill Wallace @littleblackboots whom I haven’t seen in awhile since she’s been traveling all summer. Oh and she was literally half a block from my hotel, so it was so quick to get to her.

After a long day of shoots and runway coverage, it was time to eat. I rounded up Ron @omgitsbomb, Cyn @cyneats, Brandon @dopensteez, Jessica @notjessfashion and her hubby for ramen at NOT Ippudo, but something better. Ron is an expert on NYC restaurants, and he suggested Ramen Zundo-Ya, which he thinks is way better than Ippudo but without the insane lines and crowded space. We were able to seat ourselves instantly. After the first couple of bites, we all agreed that it was better than Ippudo! Definitely check out Ramen Zundo-Ya in East Village!

There was no way we would end the night without desserts. Luckily my favorite spot was nearby – Spot Dessert Bar on St. Mark’s! Cyn got to try all the deliciousness for the first time, like The Harvest which you get to “water” with milk.

No photos but afterwards I made everyone walk with me to Momofuko so I could stack up on cookies! The End.
