Julie + Alberto: Married! (Palo Alto, CA)

The adorable and charismatic couple, Julie and Alberto, tied their knot at the beautiful St. Joseph’s church in downtown Mountain View. And moments before the ceremony, we witnessed one of the sweetest 'First Look' at the lovely park across the church! 

The newly wed then celebrated this joyous event at the Palo Alto JCC with their friends and families. The night continued with some energetic and wild dance moves! And I had the pleasure to shoot with the fun Haroon Ali. 

Congratulations to Julie and Alberto again and thanks for trusting us with your day!

Kathy + Kun: Engaged! (San Francisco, CA)

There were big celebrations for St. Paddy’s Day in the city on the day of Kathy and Kun’s e-Session. It was green everywhere and the air was filled with festivity! I never knew they have such big celebrations here. And of course, that also created quite some traffic and we had to delay our shoot for almost an hour.

We went to the Palace of Fine Arts and Crissy field for the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge as backdrop. It was a great day for pictures in SF, and the weather was quite dramatic! When we started off, it was still quite warm, but soon as the sun started to sink, it became very chilly. As Kathy put it, “we have experienced all four seasons within the last couple hours!”

As soon as we started heading back to the car, half of the GGB was already immersed in thick fog!

ISPWP 2013 Winter Contest Awards

I'm ecstatic with the latest ISPWP results! Not only it's one of my best ISPWP results so far, with 1st place in "Wedding Details", but I'm also very happy for my photography friends I just made at the Foundation Workshop and their amazing winners. Many thanks to my wedding couple, Alexandra & Mike, for letting me capture their beautiful wedding in Florida!
