Jane + Simon: An exquisite wedding in the wine country (Rutherford, CA)

On the day of Jane and Simon's wedding, the weather was very nice in the wine country. The couple started their preparation at the beautiful Andaz in downtown Napa and had their sweet first look. We then went on the Silverado trail for vineyard settings for some great portrait pictures for the lovely couple.

At the start of the ceremony at Auberge du Soleil, the handsome groom was a bit nervous and didn't show too much smile. But as soon as the officiant announced the couple husband and wife, Simon became loosened up and started to have lots of smiles! The lovely bride Jane, on the other hand, has been shining with her bright smile all day long!

I felt so happy for this awesome couple and I wish them many many more happy moments on their journey together!

Thank you Joseph Tan for second shooting with me again!

Walk Around Town in the City of Trees with the Shek Family! (Burlingame, CA)

I came to know Esther and Derek when I was shooting Katherine and Timothy's wedding. I was so excited when Esther asked to have a family session for them.

It was a beautiful afternoon on the day of their family session in downtown Burlingame. I usually just passed by the city and this is the first time I'm actually exploring it. The town itself is really charming. No wonder it got it's name as the City of Trees. We strolled along the streets in downtown and the Washington park, and stopped by Caltrain station. The historical train station building has its attractive golden yellow color and provided a nice backdrop for us. 

It was a fun afternoon with the family. Esther and Derek's little girl was a doll and she was so cheerful and playful all the way and we had such a great time!
