Beautiful summer afternoon when Tritia and Desmond got married at Japanese American Cultural Center and Japanese American National Museum. Their love radiated throughout the day with nonstop laughter and smiles.

Being an Asiam American Studies major during my stay at UCLA long time ago, photographing weddings at Little Tokyo, especially at the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center is a real treat. It was a sunny afternoon when Tritia and Desmond tied the knot here in J-Town (Downtown Los Angeles). While Tritia and her girls had a conference hall upstairs at JACC to get their makeup and hair done, Geoff and Wilson hung out with Desmond and his handsome boys. The best part about photographing the bridal party was that Tritia and her girls had plenty of snacks from Porto’s bakery! I had to refrain myself from eating too much and stayed focus on taking photos of the wedding. As for the boys, they all enjoyed a nice bottle of scotch to relax themselves before the big show!

After Tritia and Desmond were all prepped and ready to go, we ran around J-Town for their wedding portrait session. The decorations and ornaments hung around Japanese Village Plaza complimented their wedding photos perfectly! We ran around the streets afterward and took some wedding photos of just Tritia and Desmond from 1st Street to Far Bar located near their reception hall at JANM (Japanese American National Museum). Once their photo session was over, we had just enough time to take a short breather before Tritia took everyone’s breath away at the wedding ceremony as she walked down the aisle at JACC. There were fond moments here and there especially when they gave each of their parents flowers to thank each parent for raising them properly. Once the wedding ceremony concluded and sealed with a kiss, everyone took a short stroll down J-Town to JANM for cocktail hour.

The wedding party’s grand entrance was exceptionally impressive and finished off with Tritia and Desmond as they waltzed straight to their first dance. There were so much love and laughter as they greeted each wedding guest at their tables and thanked them for all their support. One of the best part of the reception had to be their dessert bar! They had a full ice cream sundae bar with so many delicious selections to choose from. After I clocked out and all their wedding photos were done, we could not help but grab a sundae to finish off the night! Enjoy.

Amazing wedding photography at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu with my lovely friend and couple, Sabrian and William. The color selections for wedding dresses, suits, and bouquets paired perfectly in the wedding photos at Calamigos Ranch.

It has been over a year since my good friend, Sabrian and William, tied the knot over at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu and I still remember all the fond moments and hilarious outtakes that happened at his wedding! To get a good idea, some of the outtakes were a bit too much to be included into their wedding photo gallery. To kick start their day, everyone relaxed over at Hyatt Hotel where the girls booked a couple suites for the extra space, while the boys were given only one room. Especially in weddings, the ladies deserve better treatment than the boys. For this summer wedding, Sabrina and Will wanted to add a bit extra color to the already colorful wedding venue at Calamigos Ranch with vibrant parasols for each of the bridesmaids to shade themselves from the sun. After the wedding party were prepped up and gathered at Calamigos Ranch for Sabrina and Will’s “first glace,” we ran all over the wedding venue for wedding party photos! The Ferris wheel, and merry-go-round complimented the wedding party’s colors perfectly!

It was a touching wedding ceremony at The Cottage Pavilion. I suppose it was an even more touchy ceremony since they are my friends and a handful of my friends were in the wedding party. Once the deal was sealed with a kiss, all their wedding guests were escorted to the reception hall to conclude the rest of the wedding with speeches, drinks, and laughter! Enjoy.

It was a beautiful rainy afternoon when Ashley and Ray tied the knot here at Darlington House in San Diego. Despite the downpour of rain, it did not dampen the mood of the wedding at all. Check out their wedding photos!

It was a rainy afternoon when Danny, Wilson, and I took a trip down to San Diego to photograph a short and intimate wedding at Darlington House. I must say that I would not have known about this beautiful wedding venue if not for our lovely couple, Ashley and Ray! Darlington House is definitely a hidden gem here in San Diego. Despite the rain, the wedding proceeded as planned and everyone took refuge from the rain inside the warm house until it was time for Ashely to walk down the aisle. The only change in the wedding was just a huge tent top to keep everyone dry during the wedding. Nonetheless, the photographs turned out beautifully.

Ashley and her girls were really good at those DIY arts and crafts details for the wedding, so every little piece of the wedding was rather sentimental for Ashley and Ray. Of all the DIY pieces of the wedding, Ashley’s bouquet had to be the most eye catching (you will see below). There were so many hugs and kisses passed around each family member and friends after the wedding ceremony concluded. All in all, their wedding wrapped up from preparation to reception in about 4-5 hours; quite impressive in my opinion. Enjoy the show!

Jamie and Joey tied the knot! It was a sweet and beautiful wedding over at Skirball Cultural Center in Santa Monica. Their wedding photos explains the rest!

It is always great to not only photograph a wedding at a beautiful venue such as Skirball Cultural Center at Santa Monica, but also to be a guest. I suppose I am at an age where my friends are slowly proposing and hosting weddings quite frequently now. One of my dearest friends, Jamie and Joey, finally tied the knot! These two college sweet hearts have dated for some time since college and Joey eventually popped the question after graduation at UCLA! Although they moved back home to Maryland, their hearts and friends are still in California. What better way to host their wedding than over here at Skirball Cultural Center in sunny Santa Monica.

Although even at sunny California, their wedding started off with rain and lots of it! Although the downpour had a few setbacks, this did not dampen their spirits at all. Jamie and her girls started off bright and early at a local salon in Korea Town, Los Angeles with plenty of coffee and donuts to warm themselves up while Joey finished the last of their wedding preparations at Skirball Cultural Center. While the hairspray and makeup session went on, our cameras did not stop clicking away from a distance. Once everyone’s makeup were done, we all headed our way to Skirball Cultural Center to meet up with Joey and the boys for their “first look.” Luckily, shortly before Jamie was all ready in her wedding dress and shoes, the rain retired and the sun popped up just in time! Talk about getting lucky! Once these two love birds met up and checked each other out, Wilson, Phebe, and I immediately started the photography session with the entire wedding party before the ceremony.

Their wedding ceremony was quick, short, and sweet. To top it off, there was a song performed by one of their wedding guests to make things even sweeter! The entire wedding felt like it breezed by so quickly once their reception started. There were exchanges of sweet speeches by their friends and family and finished with Jamie and Joey thanking everyone for participating in their joyous occasion. Enjoy their wedding photos!

Jina and Terence’s amazing wedding at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu! Their wedding photos were filled with color, laughter, and love. Check it out!

It has been quite some time since Jina and Terence’s wedding at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, but I still remember that great event like it happened recently. Jina and Terrance both prepared in their designated hotel rooms at Hyatt Hotel nearby and relaxed with their wedding party. While all the ladies enjoyed their time getting pampered and their makeup done, the boys still sprawled out in their pajamas and shorts while they watched TV. Aside from photographing every important of their wedding from beginning the end, the perks of photographing their preparation stage is that there are always snacks around. In this case, Goldfish crackers were abundant at the Jina’s suite, so that just means the girls will have more photo coverage! Since the boys were able to suit up and groom themselves within an impressive time of 10 minutes, Danny and Wilson took the boys around Hyatt Hotel for a few wedding portraits before they made their way to Calamigos Ranch to meet up the rest of the wedding party for Jina and Terence’s “first look.”

Once everyone made it to Calamigos Ranch, we got the show on the road from an adorable “first look” when Terence amazed by how beautiful his bride was to their awesome wedding photography session before their ceremony. It is always a pleasure to photograph weddings at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu since there is so much color here and this wedding venue even has a Ferris Wheel and a merry-go-round! Once our crazy wedding group photos were all done and finished, we slowed down for some sweet photos of just Jina and Terence. With the extra time ahead of schedule, Jina and Terence took a short breather before their grand entrance for their wedding ceremony!

It was such a touching wedding ceremony with all eyes on Jina while she walked down the aisle. The wedding was short and sweet with a few vows in between. After they made everything official and sealed it off with a kiss, everyone made their way to the reception hall and partied all night long! One really awesome event during reception was before dinner was served, everyone yelled out “BANZAI” a few times to get all the wedding guests pumped up! I actually joined in for the last shout. Enjoy the show!
