Meet the Team of Inspired By Studio

Eric Le, Inspired By Studio

Eric Le

Hello! I photographed my first wedding in 2014, asked my wife if I could quit my day job as a data analyst in 2016 to be a photographer full time, and then dissolved Eric Le Photography to join these two guys to my left (Thien and Dave) to form Inspired By Studio in 2018, and it's been an epic journey capturing weddings with the best team in the world. I now have 2 kids (2019 and 2021) and life is FULL (I'm learning not to say "busy" as it carries a negative connotation). I think I'm an introverted extrovert, but I still don't quite understand what that means. I just know that one of the most satisfying feelings for me is being able to beautifully capture bride and groom's moments and make them happy.

Also, I've got a secret: I had a makeup artist touch up my face for this photo.

Hi! My name is Thien and I have always felt so blessed and grateful for my family, friends and opportunities in my life. I love that photography/videography has opened up doors and my mind to exploring this world and seeing people for who they are. Before I became a photographer, I worked in education and with the community in the Bay Area. The diverse culture has taught me to appreciate differences and eat everything!

Dave Tran, Inspired By Studio

Dave Tran

The youngin’ of the group. I am from Santa Rosa, California and moved to the Bay Area to study at San Jose State University. I fell in love with videography because of the enjoyment of creating everlasting memories and exciting content for others. Motion art is something that will always keep me in awe. I also love to travel and play sports! I used to coach youth basketball for three to four years all around the South Bay Area and in Italy! I hope to continue to spread positivity and inspire others to chase after what they love. Can’t wait to get to know you more and help you any way I can.
