Wander Hour - About Me

My name is Katherine Lou, and I am a 20-something year old Honolulu and Los Angeles based photographer.  I wanderlust A LOT! I have an affinity with natural light when it comes to photography. I also have an adorable yorkie and his name is Curry (Yes, I am a foodie!).


Where should I start?  I was born and raised in Long Beach, California and at the age of three my parents took me on my first plane ride to the Philippines.  I got bit by the travel bug before I could even remember!  Ever since then, I’ve had a strong desire to travel and the need to capture the beauty of what this world has to offer.


I am a definitely a huge foodie! I love to eat anywhere from a hole-in-the-wall to a Michelin star restaurant.  I always, and I mean ALWAYS, take pictures of the food and drinks I am about to devour and consume.  One of my favorite things to do in this world is spending a whole day at Chelsea Market in New York to geek out at all the celebrity chefs that are there.


Along with traveling, and being a foodie, fashion and style has always been a part of me.  It all started off in high school where I was voted Best Dressed for my senior class.  From there, I was a Chictopia10 winner, and was able to be part of an event for NYFW in 2010.  Gone are the days of my bright colored trendy clothes, now I’m investing my funds in timeless pieces.


Although, I did graduate with a degree in business economics from CSULB, I decided to take an untraditional route by creating this website instead of becoming an analyst of some sort (or any career that is in line with economics).  I want to indulge in my passions, I want to indulge in what makes me, ME. I guess this is where Wander Hour comes in.  I want to create a blog that represents me. I want to create a blog where I could share the beauty that I have captured.  A blog where I could share my travels, my knowledge on locations I’ve been to, FOOD, and share my outfits that I’ve worn along the way in this crazy adventure of life.  Join me in my life of wanderlust and love for golden hour, my WANDER HOUR.
