Stacey + Son were actually married this past Saturday but I am finally getting a chance to post their super fun engagement session. For their shoot, we combined their love for each other (of course), the outdoors and active sports like tennis =). I can’t get enough of their easy going personalities and big smiles =).                        


I have known Anhdao since our fun Bruin days and always remembered her as the sophisticated, artistic gal with fabulous hair. It was quite an honor when another artist & friend askes me to capture her wedding day! It was even more of a treat when I met Apollo and learned how fun & creative he was as well. Several years ago, these two met in the happiest place on earth (Vegas lol) and formed…read more


When we did Helen + DJ’s first engagement session, the weather was a little less cooperating so Helen + DJ decided to do a second engagement session at where they met several years ago: the UCI campus. As usual, I always have so much fun with these two! I never feel like the 3rd wheel (maybe DJ does =P). And of course, we ended our shoot with some yummy shabu =). I am beyond excited…read more


There is so much I want to say about these two! They inspire me in so many ways. Ting + Byron are incredibly sweet, good looking and charming. They have an elegant style and their smiles + wonderful personalities always light up any room. I have a sweet place in my heart especially for Ting. She contacted me waaaay before her wedding date and even changed her date and venue just to accommodate my schedule.…read more

OANH + KENNY | Huntington Beach Hyatt Wedding

I met Oanh during my accountant days at KPMG (yep I traded in my calculator for a camera) and we quickly bonded over a love of handbags, shoes, food and did I mention handbags?! (Her collection is way better than mine). Oanh told about this sweet guy she was dating named Kenny. What I quickly learned is that he is sweetest guy EVER! He understands what makes her happy and goes above and way beyond…read more

Super September!

Today is the last day of September (seriously where did the first 9 months of 2011 go?!) and it has been one crazy, fun filled month for me. Between 4 amaaazing weddings, over 25,000 images shot, 5 countries visited, about 36 hours of flight time, only 6 full days at home and countless calories consumed, I can happily bid farewell to September and ready to get back to blogging, editing, album designing and all the…read more


After finishing a weekend of back-to-back weddings (how I spend labor day weekends), I am off in approximately 6 hours to Europe! This time I am going to Budapest, Paris and London with Jason =). It’s gonna be an in-between weddings/mini-vaca for me and I’m so excited to travel, eat and spend time with the boyfriend. Here’s one of my favorites from one of my last visits to Paris. It’s still my favorite city in…read more

GEETU + NING | Newport Beach Wedding

I have had the pleasure of getting to know Geetu + Ning over the past several months over food (of course), many laughs and Ning assisting me on various shoots as a photographer. Geetu + Ning are a fun energetic couple with a love for superheroes, board games, their dog Ewok and most noticeably, each other. They finally made it official after being together 17 years and their love is clearly stronger than ever. I…read more

VICTORIA + DANIEL | napa valley portraits

Google is awesome. Victoria + Daniel googled me while searching for a photographer to document their trip to Napa Valley in July. They were on holiday (their way of saying vacation =)) all the way from Hong Kong and I was happy to capture some wonderful memories for them in one of my favorite cities. One of the definite perks of my job is meeting new people and it was particularly special that they came…read more
