Linda + Mark: Happily ever after! (Livermore, CA)

It was during Linda and Mark's e-Session in Capitola that I got to know more about this charming couple. They were easy-going and funny, and love to laugh. And I've been looking forward to their wedding since.

Linda and Mark's wedding took place at the Poppy Ridge Golf Course in Livermore. Although there were not a whole lot of events planned during the course of their big day, it surely was emotion-packed, especially during the first look and the ceremony. Every direction my camera pointed to, there were tears rolling down. Tears of joy and happiness. And having Mark's brother, Brian, to officiate their marriage added so much more preciousness to the wedding. It was a special and touching scene!

Family members and long time friends flew in from far away, had fun catching up and enjoyed the time together. And when the evening came, and lively music started by DJ Warren, everyone including the couple, their families and guests, all started getting wild on the dance floor, and the atmosphere totally changed to a fun and wild party! Joseph Tan (my second shooter) and I had so much fun clicking away our shutters!

I was honored to be there to capture the beautiful moments of Linda and Mark's wedding, and my sincerest wishes for this lovely couple to embark on a wonderful journey together!

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!
