Ian's First Birthday Party

Ian's first birthday party was very colorful and beautifully put together. One can tell how much time and effort his parents have put into it! However, probably not used to have such a big crowd around him, Ian was a bit overwhelmed. Especially being in the center of stage, with the cheering and excitement going on, he was laughing one moment and then burst into tears the next minute. But those are the exact most valuable moments for my lenses that I have captured for the family to enjoy and treasure. 

P.S.: And Ian actually did much better at his portrait session!

Christy + Lonnie Wedding (Saratoga, CA)

Christy and Lonnie's wedding at Villa Montalvo was very unique and filled with nice surprises. The day was beautiful and warm. The couple and their wedding party look gorgeous. The little ritual to free the doves. and the parade of beautiful classic convertibles as their transportation, are just a couple examples of the many surprises. And it was fun to ride and take shots in the convertible! The ceremony was beautiful. The reception following was filled with tear-shedding toasts among friends and families. And I bet everyone would not forget the wonderful moments on the dancing floor too. Thanks Aaron again for helping me capture this beautiful wedding together.

Rita + William Wedding (Menlo Park, CA)

Rita and William's wedding was lovely and unforgettable. They picked their wedding venue to be Rita's grandma's house, a perfect place to leave with tons of happy memories. I was a little bit surprised that Rita and William requested to have all their pictures taken exclusively in photojournalistic style, without any portraits. I did my best to capture all the precious moments so they can relive those moments over and over again.

It was so much fun and enjoyable to work with the couple!
