About Us

Blue Violet Photo is the Joint Venture of:

Cynthia Quiles

Co-Owner / Photographer

My name is Cynthia Quiles and I am a woman of MANY words. I love to talk and brainstorm ideas for the perfect session that will ultimately capture your vision. I have been shooting portraits and weddings since 2009. I absolutely love doing all kinds of photography, but my favorite thing to shoot is Boudoir and Children's and Family portraits. As the mother of my own adorable preschooler, I know how to talk to kids and make the shoot fun and pain free! I love capturing genuine moments between couples and families.

When I'm not busy capturing special moments, I work in front of the camera as an actress and model. This experience helps me pose my subjects naturally and help you have the most comfortable experience possible.


  • I am 100% Puerto Rican and the passion of my latin roots is reflected in everything I do. 

  • I absolutely love children and dogs!! Nothing makes me happier than running on a playground with a group of kids! 

  • I am a total foodie and LOVE to try new restaurants and foods! 

  • I am a whiz in the kitchen, My specialty is making any meal in a healthy, nutrient dense way, while still making it delicious! 

  • I have lived all around the country, including New York City, Miami Beach, San Francisco and Los Angeles, but California is where I call "home". 

Rich Jhong

Co-Owner / Photographer

I am a man of few words who appreciates beautiful imagery. I love nature and capturing memorable moments the way I see them. I like to think I have a different eye than most when it comes to photography because my focus is in the details. My tagline is “As I See It” for this reason. I capture moments in the most candid ways and try to avoid posed photos as often as possible.


  • My father was born and raised in Peru, my mother was born and raised in Taiwan

  • I have Elite status on Yelp (I love to eat)

  • I love and ride my carbon Cervelo road bike when I can

  • I am resourceful and have been known to invent things based on my passion for tinkering.

  • I love to travel and experience various cultures. This allows me to experience all the beauty the world offers first hand!

My photography style involves creating spectacular images of your most memorable moments using vibrant colors, unique angles, and selective focus. In my opinion, the intricate details of your wedding can recall the same emotions as the rest of your wedding day and I love capturing all of it.

My goal is that you can get a sense of the passion I have for my work based on my service reputation and enthusiasm. I pride myself in offering not just a service, but rather an experience, where we can collaborate to achieve the perfect imagery and execute your vision, from start to finish.
