A Thai photographer who was one of the official photographers at Sunday’s Oscars ceremony in Los Angeles has shared her excitement on social media.

Jutharat “Poupay” Pinyodoonyachet was born in Thailand and lives in New York, where she has contributed to The New York Times, New York Magazine, The New Yorker, and The Wall Street Journal.

According to a Coconuts report, she posted a selfie taken at the Oscars ceremony, in which she expressed disbelief at being there.

“Dream until it’s reality. I’M HERE AT THE OSCARS!!!”

Poupay says she has always dreamt of being an official photographer at Hollywood’s biggest event of the year. On Sunday, that dream finally came true, when she was flown to Los Angeles to photograph the ceremony.

“I was so excited. It’s one of the most major events in my life.”

In addition to her selfie, the 30 year old managed to photograph the winning stars from Everything Everywhere All at Once, posting a shot of Jamie Lee Curtis, Michelle Yeoh, and Ke Huy Quan, who won Best Supporting Actress, Best Actress, and Best Actor, respectively.

The sci-fi multiverse movie swept the board during the ceremony, winning a total of 7 Oscars.

Poupay studied communications at Bangkok’s Chulalongkorn University, where her passion for photography was born and what started out as a hobby eventually became a profession.

“Looking back now, as a person who started photography as a hobby, I feel like I’ve come a long way. I want to thank every encouragement that led me to where I am today. After this, I will continue to grow and contribute to the industry.”
