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!

Happy to see the Lau Family again! (Ma Wan Park, Hong Kong)

I was so happy to see Lina, Andy and their two lovely angels this year. Shalyn and Khalyn have grown so much since I last saw them last year, and they are ever so adorable! I have started taking their family pictures since Shalyn was a baby, and a maternity session for Lina with Khalyn in mommy's tummy. It’s a great feeling to witness these little cuties growing up. 

This time Lina and Andy brought me to this cool Ma Wan Park. The only vague memory I had with Ma Wan was a very remote fisherman's village famous for it's shrimp paste! So I was quite surprised to see the drastic changes. Private cars are not allowed to reach the park directly, so we took the shuttle and then a short walk. The place was very beautiful and well maintained. And I had the pleasure to document the precious moments of this beautiful family again!

Fun at Disney Hotel with the Lau family (Hong Kong)

We had the photo session also at the Disney Hotel, on the same hot and humid day. The family had good spirit and made the photo session lots of fun. The boys reminded me of my own when they were young. Thanks Angela, Pierre and the boys for a wonderful photo session!
