Stella + Wailun Wedding (San Francisco, CA)

Winter in California is always unpredictable. It was a stormy night before Stella and Wailun's wedding day, but it turned out to be a beautiful day the next day in San Francisco. Stella and Wailun had a small ceremony at San Francisco City Hall with just their close families. We then went to Golden Gate Park to have a portrait session. As a finale, Stella and Wailun "sacraficed" their wedding attires and went into the cold Bakers Beach water and gave me a golden opportunity for a "trash-the-dress" session! I was surprisingly delighted that Stella and Wailun were willing to go that far! It was a fun session!
Check out the music video at the end of the blog with more highlights of Stella and Wailun's wedding day.

Here is the slideshow.

Yesenia + Greg Wedding (Mission San Luis Obispo, CA)

It was a wedding I was really looking forward to ever since Yesenia and Greg booked me. Even though it was quite a distance to drive from the Bay Area to San Luis Obispo (especially I drove back and forth within the same day), but the trip was worth it. The weather was very nice and warm with plenty of sunshine in this beautiful old town, and the Mission itself is a historical beauty. Later on the wedding party moved to charming Avila Beach Resort for the reception. Everybody enjoyed the food so much and the dancing was unstoppable.
