Another beautiful wedding in 2018 at the historical San Francisco Fairmont Hotel. This time I had the opportunity to second photographing for Joe from Joe Kim Studio. I started my wedding photography journey from assisting to second shooting and eventually booking my own clients. Even though I’m booking my own clients now, I still enjoy second shooting on days when I don’t have clients, because it’s a time that’s without too much stress and allow me to be creative.Read More

I've known my dear friend Fiona from the college days, we were roommates, she was going for her master and I was finishing up my bachelor's degree.

SheRead More
I would always suggest my brides to hire a wedding planner to take some pressure off themselves. If they are planning their own wedding, I would still suggest hiring a day of coordinator to make sure everyone is following the timeline, also for the vendors to have a 'point-person' to go to when there are questions during the wedding day.
I'm glad my couples always chose the San Francisco City Hall as their engagement session location. I just never get tired of photographing beautiful couples in this gorgeous historic building. Michelle and Tony also choose the City Hall for their engagement session, we met late in the afternoon when it's less crowded,Read More
