Medical Residency Headshot Portrait

It’s tough competition to make it into a career that saves lives. We here at Capture the Look understand the trials and triumphs of a medical career, especially for those embarking on their adventure in medical residency. Before having the privilege of sleep-deprivation from high-stress intensive training, possibly in another country for international experience in areas that need a higher level of medical care, you’ve got to prove your stuff but submitting application after application after application of your choice of programs, hoping you become their choice in the end. Pitted against thousands of other students for the distinguished 10-or-so positions offered, you’re looking at 1% odds of making it. Then you get the distinct honor of paying off your education, and considering the interest accumulation for when you can finally afford to do so, this could mean hundreds of thousand dollars of debt.

How to tackle such a mountain of an obstacle and prove your passion to be of help to others? Like any competitive career, it starts with the resume, in this case, the program application. Most require a headshot photo, representing you at your most professional, compassionate, and well-rested. Aside from dressing up for such a shot, it’s out of your hands as you rely on your friendly photographer to figure out lighting and your most flattering angle. With the advancement of technology, many people these days find and choose their doctors based on client reviews, educational credentials, and, yes, a photo of what they look like, offered by many “Provider Finder” online services.

Put your best foot forward and represent yourself well with a headshot from Capture the Look—fast, friendly, professional. With makeup service ready on-hand, you can be assured that your picture will give you a leading edge and a great first impression. That’s the easy part. Now, on to the end goal of finally having the title of “Doctor” in front of your name.

Regale Winery wedding with Harry & Sylvie

June 27th, 2015 Comments off

You can tell by a man’s swagger whether or not he’s a woman’s man, and though a man of few words, Harry is exactly that when he woo’ed his wife-to-be, Sylvie. Strutting in a suave tux and shiny shoes, Harry makes his way down swanky Santa Row, with its manicured potted plants, distinct storefronts, and classy dining options. He passes his very own Vintage Wine Merchants on his way to Regale Winery, the setting of their elegant wedding.

Sylvie describes it best in her vows with her French-Canadian sass, how her entrepreneurial ideal man is smart, driven, entertaining, and romantic, all rolled into a snazzy pair of Italian shoes. It’s ok that Harry has chosen to bypass this particular wardrobe requirement; she has come to love him, anyway. Amidst wine glasses red and white, under a perfectly clear summer sky and surrounded by the sweet smell of lavender and loving friends and family, Sylvie and Harry seal their vows as husband and wife. “I feel big, I dream big, and I love big,” Sylvie says, with enough love for this union to last a lifetime.

Riot of a time with Cindy + Louis

April 13th, 2015 Comments off

Party music’s pumping, and bodies give off heat as they twist and sway to the rhythm of the bass. Hands in the air, memories slip in and out of consciousness as the recollections of the day resurface and recede. This is the adrenaline rush that follows a day filled with heightened emotions from orchestrating a wedding, after months or even years of hard work and planning. But let’s back up.

To the beginning. To gentler daytime memories beneath the shade of wisteria blossoms dangling delicately from an overhead trellis, shielding a couple from the harsh rays of the sun. To the Cypress Hotel, to Villa Montalvo in Los Gatos for a wedding ceremony, before we arrive at Dynasty Cupertino for the evening reception and festivities.

Cindy and Louis have known each other since they were kids when, to Cindy’s great surprise, she discovered deeper feelings for her childhood friend. The two have complementing personalities, from her Type A drive to his Type B mellowness, from her career as a math teacher in Los Angeles to his love for medical science. As with all great love stories that must endure the test of time, their relationship has not come without challenges, namely, that of distance; Cindy and Louis have once had to spend 4,000 miles apart (Louis in Grenada for med school), and they eventually cut that distance down to 2,500 miles (Louis in New York), and
the 340 (San Francisco Bay Area), and then to 0 on the day they exchange their heartfelt vows.

“Sometimes I wonder if this is just a dream,” Cindy mused, taking in the ethereal feel of having found love and happiness. A dream of spending forever by each other’s side. May they never have to be apart again.
