Anime Expo 2016: Day 1, 2, & 3

July 02, 2016  •  1 Comment

Hi Cosplayers and Anime Lovers!!!

First and foremost I would like to thank each and every one of you for allowing me the honor to photograph you in your cosplay.

Secondly, special shouts to to my friend who I met last year at AX: Jenn, Anthony, Riley, Jacob, and Angie.  Thank you for supporting me in my creative vision, and for getting cosplayers to come to my shoot.  It means to world to me!!!  I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!  *HUGS4DAYS*

Lastly, but most definitely not least, I want to thank my wife (last photo) for coming out to support me.  Thank you for always being there, and loving me for who I am.  On that note, wifey and I decided that the cosplayer who took the cake this year was "person in the bathtub."  We loved how creative it was to be unique and different.  It gave us all a good laugh and pushes the boundary for cosplaying.  However, this is not to diminish the hard work, sweat, and even tears (for some of you cosplayers) to put your outfit together.

As promised, these photos are all free to download for personal use only.  DO NOT use these images for commercial purposes.  These photos are strictly for the love of cosplaying, and an award for all you have done for the cosplaying community.  In a world that is driven by monetary values, I want to take this back to building relationships and trust.  I am not profiting off these images, so please report anybody who is/are using these images for personal profit.

Okay, enough of that talk.  I want to let you all know that you have all made me so happy each day I went to shoot.  Every time I showed some of you your photo(s) and you say, "Wow, that looks so good!"  Or, ask me, "Wow, where can I get these?"  It makes me feel like I have done my job to my fullest potential as a photographer.

Also, when you use these images to share with your family and friends on social media, please like my FB business page and tag the business page Heng it Up Photography.  Or, follow me on Instagram @hengitupphotography and tag me when you post.  I support you, so please support me.

Without further to say, you can find most of the photos here: http://www.hengitupphotography.com/p959753436

If you do not see your photos here, please shoot me an email.  Thanks!!!

Hello cosplayers!!!

 

First and foremost, I would like to thank each and every one of you for allowing me to photograph you.  The photos featured in this online album are the photographer’s choice.  I have another online album for those of you who are not featured in this album.  Please write me an email and I will gladly write you back with the link to download the photos for $FREE.99.  All I ask is that you please credit my photography business when using these photos on social media, or for your personal website(s) and what not.  And, please think of me should anyone you know need a friendly photographer to work with.  *big cheesy smile, with two thumbs up*

Again, all my photos are yours for the taking for free, just download them onto a desktop or laptop. Please use these photos for personal use only.  Should you want/need to use these for commercial purposes, please write me regarding your photos only.  I know how much time and effort you put in to make your costumes.  So, thank you so much for doing what you do.  I love watching you all walk proudly, but yet humbly in your outfits.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Last, but not least, I would like to thank my wife for spending “Koalaty Time” with me at AX 2015.  It was my second time in over 10+ years and her first time ever!!!  Thank you cosplayers for being so nice to us.  We had a great time “hengout out” with you.  I am very excited for next year!!! Please stay in touch!!!

CharDae + Jason Wedding Photobooth

Congrats CharDae + Jason!!!

The way you two brought the New Orleans swagger to SoCal was awesome!!! Thank you so much for educating me about the Second Line.

CharDae wrote: "That was called a Second Line. It is tradition for funerals in celebration of life, weddings, and other social community celebrations. The proper way would entail an actual New Orleans Brass Band and we would all spill out into the streets and walk down with the band. Those witnessing would likely join in and walk and dance along as well."
