Welcome to my blog I'm a wedding photographer in the San Francisco Bay Area, with a very simple philosophy and style:
I shoot life, as it happens. I thrive on shooting split-second moments that mark
life-altering experiences: an extended gaze, a touch of the hand, a tearful smile.

I capture the details that few people notice, the moments everyone wants to remember,
and ultimately the feelings that can be relived, over and over, for years and decades to come.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my blog. I hope it gives you some
insight into my skills, experience and professionalism. Please contact me if you
have any questions or are interested booking an appointment.

As you can see, Heather and Derrick are nature lovers and big fans of the redwoods. It's one of the reasons we started our session at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. More important, it was their playground while attending Santa Cruz University.

This is a banana slug, a common resident. Somehow, it became the face of Santa Cruz University...as its mascot. Until yesterday, I have never heard off or seen one before.

Two things you should know about Vivienne and Ryan's wedding: 

1) After San Jose took a beating by mother nature all week long, I was praying for her to give me only one hour to shoot the portrait on Saturday. Result: we had one hour of cloudy sky and no sun. BAM! I finally learn that praying does work.

2) Despite the temporary stoppage of rain, it was still cold. The bridal party was so gracious to endure some serious goose bumps and actually did everything I asked of them. I learned that they really love Vivienne and Ryan...or they just simply owe them money.

Our photography team had a blast. Even though grueling, it was one of the jubilant weddings we've ever attended. Choosing the right bridal party members does make a huge difference in making your day more special.

Here are the contributing vendors to make their beautiful wedding:

Cake: Euro Delight
Hair and Make-up: Friends and Family
Flowers; H&L Flowers
Church: Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph
Reception Venue: Dynasty Restaurant on Story Rd.
Wedding Gown: Marina Morrison
Limo: Lone Star Limousine

Blessed with the best weather New Orleans could bring, I was glad to be back shooting a wedding in my home town. I was thrilled to have such wonderful talents in the industry as Chad Dyle and Jim Forly from Chad Dye Productions and Joann Huynh from Pure Hair Studio. On top of it all, I was able to visit my mom for several days.

After indulging in crawfish, oysters, gumbo and Cafe Du Monde's beignets, the clothes which I brought to visit were a bit tighter on my trip back. I think I should try to book couple of these weddings so I can make an excuse back to see my dear mother more often (by the way, my mom is still is in disbelief that I could get paid shooting wedding. 
She still wonders what I went to college for).
