Danira + Rich: Happily married! (Bella Montagna, CA)

I felt so lucky to be the wedding photographer for the adorable couple, Danira and Rich. They had their wedding at the beautiful wedding venue Bella Montagna. When I visited the place the night before for the rehearsal, its stunning view and the spectacular landscape have already taken my breath away. When the time came for Danira and Rich's wedding, the place has turned even more magnificent, especially when the beautiful bride came into view.

The ceremony was quite emotional with tears. And why wouldn't it be? A ceremony with a lovely couple and touching speeches in front of the amazing 'top-of-the-world' view, it would definitely make one's heart melt. As the cocktail and reception commenced, the atmosphere immediately turned into a lively, joyful and energetic place. Great dances and fun moments filled the entire venue until the very end. I wish the newlyweds a lifetime of love and happiness.

And special thanks to Heidi Sandoval and Tina Case for second-shooting with me that day!

Elaine + Daniel: Romance is in the air! (UC Berkeley, CA)

Engagement-session-UC-Berkeley-with-Campanile-in-view Elaine and Danny are both graduates of UC Berkeley. Even though their love story didn't quite start on campus, they were just meant for each other (and who knows, maybe they have crossed each other's paths without knowing at the time!) So it just seemed the perfect place to have their engagement photo shoot.

Although I had e-Sessions here before, Elaine and Danny took me to a number of new places on campus I haven't been to, and those were really cool spots for great pictures! We had shots with the campus iconic architecture, Campanile, from many different perspectives, and we even sneaked into the stadium for a few cool snaps!

It was such fun to work with this sweet and great-looking couple and I am anxiously looking forward to photo shoot their wedding very soon!
