“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God” – Ephesians 2:8

In the year 1999, identical twin brothers, Michael and Daniel Xu, became the newest addition to a family in sunny Southern California. The duo spent 18 years of their lives practically inseparable—twirling in their mother’s womb, developing a unique language at early age only they understood, playing 1v1 basketball tourneys daily, wearing the exact same clothes until middle school, etc. Through it they developed a level of empathy and understanding that few get to experience. Soon, the time came and it was time for the brothers to go their separate ways; to live an independent life apart from each other.


Fast forward, we decided to create a business together in college. Thus, Given By Grace Photography was born in the year 2017. Our goal is to give you unique memories captured in the form of high quality photographs. We take our time and pour our souls into capturing, editing, and delivering photographs unique to you beautiful people. As we continue to refine and find a unique craft, we never shy away from our purpose and our mindset.
