San Francisco city hall will be one of those places that I'll never get tired of! I am glad to call this beautiful historical building my second office because I am here all the time.
I had to pleasure to be the second photographer on 4/22/17 for my friend Elina from Elina Rose Photography. This wedding started at the Northbrae community church in Berkeley, it was a beautiful church with lots of greeneries. After the ceremony, we moved to the Lake Merrit in Oakland where the bride and groom had some nice alone time riding the gondola. We were able to photograph the last bit of their romantic ride.
Our photo shoot in the beautiful Triple S Ranch is ready to share!! Our makeup artist Felicia Chang from Bun Bun Bridal Lab came to me with a vision of creating a beautiful shoot that has a lot of baroque elements. I thought the baroque elements were so "Beauty and the Beast"!! Keep reading and look at the photos to see what I'm talking about!
Senah's first birthday was full of fun! Ahnah got Senah three different outfits, one made her look like a beautiful princess with tulle, lace and a pretty flower crown. Her second outfit was the traditional Hanbok, full of bright colors. Senah's last outfit was the cutest piggy outfit. The party theme was inspired by the Mo Willems book,
I met up with Cassandra from Cassandra McClure a few weeks ago for this bridal inspired shoot. I love what she did with Mica's hair and makeup, the very clean and simple updo made our bride looking very classy. Her subtle sunkissed eye makeup worked well with the rosy lip color. The beautiful emerald ring is from Susie Saltzman and the dress from BCBG.
I had the pleasure to work with a team of talented vendors at the Ardenwood Historic Farm in Fremont, California just before the spring season started. My good friend Jessica Shortt, who is also a great photographer had the vision of a romantic elopement in a barn setting, and we were so lucky Ardenwood Historic Farm opened their arms to us for this shoot. It was the perfect venue for what we had prepared for this shoot.
This family/anniversary session was perfect! I was in Las Vegas for the annual wedding photographers conference and had the pleasure of meeting Danielle, who is also a photographer. Danielle and her husband John were celebrating their 8th year wedding anniversary, they put on their outfit from 8 years ago on their wedding date for this family session.
This elopement actually was in December 2016! Can you imagine how cold it was at Pescadero? I am so happy I finally get to share these photos with you.
The couple Anika & Raj was so fun to photograph! They were actually getting married inside the San Francisco City Hall the next day. So this was their pre-ceremony photo shoot.
I can't believe how much rain we are receiving here in California! Although it is good to fix the drought situation that's been around for several years, I have to say "I miss the sunshine!" I can't wait for the sun to come out again so I can create more beautiful images with talented wedding vendors.
We have been receiving lots of rain since the beginning of 2017 here in California. On 1/14/17, we were lucky to have some sun and greenery for this photo shoot. Our host Jen had a vision of having all things green, so from the bride's flower crown, to her bouquet, the wedding stationary, the head table and the wedding cake were all green!
I was very happy Susan from Jireh Artisty contacted me to do this bridal shoot in the Fairmont Hotel San Jose. It was a fun afternoon hanging out with many wedding industry friends. Our beautiful bouquet and boutonniere is by Sara Dubon from Dubon Floral Design. I've worked with Sara before and absolutely love her floral design.
