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. I still remember almost 10 years ago, the night she was going to give birth to her daughter, we took her to the hospital after she had just gotten back from the Disneyland with her sister Mandy. 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

Chris and Anne are getting married in San Francisco City hall a day after Independence Day. They spent a lot of their time in the Sacramento area, so for their engagement session, we visited some of the landmarks in Sacramento to document their love for each other.
I photographed Christie and Chi Wai a year ago for their SF city hall wedding. It's a year later and they are expecting a baby boy! I was so happy when they contacted me with the news! We decided to do the maternity session in their home, where they feel most comfortable. It was a nice warm spring morning, we were able to capture nice intimate moments of them. Their baby is due in July and I can't wait to meet him!Read More
Ruth and Haig are engaged! Their wedding will be in July this year in the beautiful Ardenwood Historic Farm and I can't wait to capture their big day!
