Nick and Maria 3 years anniversary session

After 3 years, I met one of my favorite couples again Nick and Maria, they still had the energy from the very beginning when I took the engagement session for them in Lake Tahoe, still play around, making the joke and love each other day by day.

Our evening started off a bit rushed due to some travel delays, but I was so stoked to see that they could make it up for sunset!!

We started the session from the most famous Cypress Tree Tunnel in the world, Point Reyes, and end with Drake Beach where they can walk by the shoreline in the golden hour. I loved to watch Nick and Maria laugh with waves and sunset behind them. It was so romantic and so California. What a great way to celebrate 3 years of life, love, and happiness.

Your love, our passion!




Dan + Kylie | Wedding at Saluti Cellars, Somerset.

Hi Bang, welcome!!! A sexy Aussie voice pops up in my mind when I first got into the hair salon in the beautiful Saluti Cellars, Somerset city. Someone told me that Aussie was the most beautiful voice in the world, and I couldn’t agree more. The bride showed up with the brightest smile that amazed us. What a welcome! In a minute, we got to hang around with the family. There were lots of talking, laughing, and stories cheering Kyle and Dan on their wedding day.

Usually, I would feel so much stress shooting a wedding but on that day, I didn’t feel any. It was simply, in my humble opinion, a reunion of two passionate and enthusiastic souls under the witness of friends and family members. At the venue, we were totally obsessed with how this couple brought their personalities into the mix on their special day. While the bride spent her time with the MUA, Dan had his time laying out on the pool enjoying the beautiful weather.

I even asked myself whether this guy ever planned to attend his wedding day since he was so chill. Things turned around ever since the first look. Dan had a spectacular moment with a little friend during his first met with Kyle. As he saw her, it was a sweet moment spark, his eyes glisten as bright as the stars. He smiled happily, drowned in the ocean of his love. We immediately knew that this wedding would be something beautiful and raw. On the day of their wedding, Dan and Kyle got married in a rustic-style building that somehow reminds me of a western movie set.

It was a perfect, moody space that gave off all those vintage rocker vibes. If you love simple greenery and white flowers, you are going to love how this couple chose to decorate their reception space. If that is not enough, just wait until you see how Kyle and Dan spent every sweet moment and lots of laughter and candid fun at their reception. The wedding of Kyle and Dan is a typical example of how pure love is. Sometimes a wedding does not have to be fancy with the luxury venue, or distinct decoration and transportation. A wedding is about only one thing: Love. Thank you, Kyle and Dan, again for choosing us to be the witnesses of your beautiful wedding. We wish you two more and more happiness on your journey together. Your happiness is our passion.

Valeriemay and Matthew || Historic Mission Santa Clara.

We may forget about the Super Bowl between 49ers and Chief. We may forget how crazy it was about the cirque in the night performance. However, we knew it for sure we never forgot our lovely couple , Valeriemay and Matthew
Getting ready in the iconic landmark Fairmont hotel in San Jose,which is known around the world for their unique architecture, impressive decor, magnificent features.

This luxurious hotel boasts every attention to detail of any couple’s dreams. Soon after the preparation, waiting outside of the hotel entrance, an iconic touch of elegance luxury Rolls-Royce limousines . The couple arrived to Santa Clara church university in the greatest welcome from family and friend.

Their wedding day was truly breathtaking. The church itself was also known as the Historic Mission Santa Clara. Their combined devotion to the Christian faith and love for God makes them a match made in heaven! For this beautiful bride and groom, Vintage Church was a perfect oasis of charm in the heart of San Jose.

The couple chose the magnificent Palm Event center as their venue for the reception. I cannot say how many times I fall in love with this venue. The iconic palm trees extending the entrance highlight the couple even more in the sun of February. Though people usually look serious or elegance in the wedding, this wedding is a perfect combination of both. Guests and family both celebrated the Super Bowl and the wedding in the same time, making the wedding even more memorable.

The reception was filled with lots of activities and performance from the cirque. However, it was also fulfilled with silent moment and drowning in the emotion through stories in the speeches and the dance. Today, we honor the love of Valeriemay and Matthew. Through your wedding, you gave us a new vision of love and stories of your journey. We would like to thank you again for choosing us to be your wedding photographer. Your happiness is our passion.

Jennifer and Penang | Engagement session at Downtown Los Angeles

After hours of traffic, we eventually arrived in Downtown Los Angeles. We are lucky enough since the police blocked the main street for High school field trip. Because of that, the background was really empty during the session.

We started at the Disney Concert Hall, then went to the Broad, stopped by Union Station then ended up at Santa Monica Pier. I was very glad Jennifer and Penang didnt reschedule that day due to rainy weather. Just a little rain in the morning did not stop us from having a great photoshoot time that day!


Falling in love is easy but Staying in Love is very Special

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

if you can recall one of my past blog posts, I was able to capture the true love of an elderly couple 2 years ago.

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to have a chance of meeting and documenting the same senior couple. This time, it is extra special! Henry ( 90 year old ) and Erma ( (92 year olds) celebrated their 45 years together.

Connie ( their Daughter) told me Henry had stomach problem but they refused to go under operation because they know for sure he would not be able to recover after the surgery. During the session, Henry and Erma showed me their admirable love: they still called each other “bae,” and sang the song from their wedding’s first dance. They were the proof of my long time favorite quote, “falling in love is easy but staying in love is very special.”

Horseshoe Bend, AZ | David and Van Postwedding.

David and Van got married back in January 2019 after their one year anniversary they decided to remake a bridal shoot at somewhere on their traveling bucket list. Then They picked Horseshoe Bend as their most favorite place to visit. Traveling from Texas to Arizona they were so excited to explore the place.
Thanks God the weather was so perfect, it was sunny and not too windy. We hiked up to the top and waited for sunset. To be honest I can’t think of a more perfect day than this one when we made our way to the top of the canyon capturing sunset and the view seriously took my breath away.
They danced, laughed and had fun next to the sunset. I’m thankful for having a chance capturing these moments at the unbelievably beautiful backdrop.
