Jinjin + Akil: Meant For Each Other (Foster City, CA)

San-Francisco-Wedding-Photographer-Foster-City-engagement-session-01 "If two people are meant for each other, eventually they will be together." - I think this fits Jinjin and Akil perfectly. See their love story here.

For their engagement session, the couple decided to stay close to their home town, Foster City. I have known this to be a neat and beautiful city, but this time, I actually got to explore it in depth. Jinjin and Akil brought me to many different cool spots around town. We stopped by places by the road side, under the bridge, strolling along the lakeside, and had a really fun time! I'm really looking forward to Jinjin and Akil's upcoming wedding, which will have both the Indian and Chinese traditional ceremonies!

Casy + Newton: A ride to a lifetime of happiness! (Danville, CA)

It was a few months ago when I photoshoot Casy and Newton's engagement session in San Francisco, and it seemed a long way before their wedding. And then it happened already!

It was really sweet that Casy and Newton decided to do the hair and makeup for each other. And they were so professional too! The bride's mom was helping there, and one can really feel her happiness and the closeness between the mother and daughter.

Knowing Newton is a fan of cars, Casy specifically selected the one-of-a-kind Blackhawk Automotive Museum to have their wedding. In addition to the gallery of shiny, classy automotives of all times, the couple also borrowed their friends' treasures - a Maserati and an Aston Martin, and added quite some flares to the venue. And from the decorations to the overall planning, it showed how much effort and thoughts the couple has put in. I especially adore the lego structure and the deco Newton put around the cake!

Congratulations and best wishes to the lovely couple! 

And thank you for the wonderful Heidi Sandoval for second shooting with me!

Katherine + Timothy: Engaged! (San Francisco, CA)

San-Francisco-Wedding-Photographer-Fort-Point-engagement-session-01 It was another gorgeous day in San Francisco, sunny and hot! This time my couple, Katherine and Timothy, took me first to the Fort Point Museum. The old brick building itself is quite unique and lends itself to a lot of fun and interesting spots for cool and creative frames. However, the museum closes quite early and just when we were about to get another cool shot up on the roof, with Kathy and Timothy standing up on the wall against the wind, the attendant already came herding us to leave the museum!

We then stopped along the coast to enjoy the dreamy sunset lighting, and then headed to the San Francisco downtown area. Timothy brought me to the restaurant he first met Kathy, to reminisce the memorable moments that brought them together. It was so sweet and romantic!

It was fun walking through the bustle and hustle of this beautiful city at night! We had such a great time that the hours went by like a breeze! I am eagerly looking forward to their upcoming wedding!
