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!




Happy Earth Day || JJ and Jenn Engagement session .


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!

Louise and Alex || Wedding in Sacramento Courthouse

Louise and Alex’ wedding day has been one of my favorites from this past summer and I am so excited to finally be sharing it with you all! Their day started by getting ready in their own house  with their best friends and family by their side, they did their first look at home also I will never forget how Louise looked at his beautiful bride for the first time with so much love in his eyes.and then we all driving to the Sacramento Courthouse .

Louise and Alex became husband and wife during the most perfect and intimate ceremony in the Sacramento Courthouse. The Courthouse is just very simple venue where everyone celebrated the beginning and Louise and Alex’ life together as husband and wife long into the night.

Todd and Meta || Four Barrel Coffee

It was a perfect cloudy day when I met Todd and Meta in Four Barrel Coffee shop for their engagement session. We explored a lot of San Francisco street the evening of their engagement photos then we heading to Sutro Bath. These two bleed San Francisco and it was so fun to see the city through their eyes.

Remembering all this laughter makes me excited for your October wedding, guys. Thanks for being so great!


Hoda and Ziad | Garden Icecream, Engagement session.

We began our photoshoot with Hoda & Ziad at the Palace of Fine Art for some formal shots, then the lovely couple decided to actually have their engagement session at their favorite Ice cream spot, that was also in Ziad’s very own neighborhood where he grew up. Being at your own playground surely brought out the comfortable feels in every moment. Later, we ended up at Prospect Park for a walk. It was a romantic, cozy, and absolutely enjoyable vibe working with Hoda & Ziad. Even the city gave us the coolness color of San Francisco in Spring – it was just perfect. Here are some of my favorite shots from this session:



Jared and Trinh | Zara couple.

As Passion Studio continues to grow, we are humbled to capture & share love stories of wonderful, unique couples. And indeed, Trinh + Jared is not an exception. Jared is handsome and kind, who currently serves as the Pastor of E2 Church. Our beautiful bride-to-be Trinh might be petite but she carries such a contagious smile on her face all the time. Its impossible to not feel the positive energy from these two. On their photoshoot day, Jared’s shoes were accidentally left behind at home, and the two decided to make a quick shopping trip to Zara. Following their footsteps, we captured nothing but raw, candid, and absolute truthful moments between Trinh & Jared. Every warm gaze, soft touch, sweet smile to each other….. everything was so natural that they made our jobs so much easier! And just like that, only 2 more months until their Big Day. Here at Passion Studio, the team is beyond excited to be there and giving our best work for Trinh & Jared.



Ryan and Pang Wedding || Arden Hill Resort and Spa !

Ryan and Pang were absolutely gorgeous  on their wedding day. These two love birds were married at Arden Hills in Sacramento CA on a late October weekend. There was a raining past two week  but the skies cleared up on their wedding day for their ceremony and everything was perfect for their touching ceremony and reception.  Here are a few of my favorite images from their wedding day.

Lily and Si || Engagement session, Legion of Honor.

Lily and Si  are two of the most genuinely sweet, compassionate, hilarious and so so so photogenic people I have come across. They decide to pick San Francisco for their engagement session to do an all day adventure- we went from the Legion of Honor to Golden Gate bridge, end up at  their favorite bar call Clift hotel . The special thing in this engagement session is Si was renting the Harley Davidson and carry Lily around San Francisco. It was a freaking beautiful day, one that I am so grateful they chose me to capture. Cant wait to capturing their wedding day.
