Enjoy the quick photo session up at Yosemite! My short vacation became a fun night photography session in the mountains.

It is that time again where we start the year fresh and try our best to not break our new year resolution. I am part of the bunch that usually breaks them through procrastination and lack of discipline. My new year resolution is to…not break my new year resolutions! One of my resolutions is to stop and enjoy a bit of rest and relaxation. After a crazy 2013 and my last wedding of the year, I decided to pack up my camera and drive to Yosemite! The irony of leaving my work behind in this short vacation and I still brought my camera. I suppose my camera brings some sort of peace. During my stay at Yosemite, I took up a few hiking trails that were open at the time and lugged my camera and tripod up the mountain. One of the more satisfying photos from that trip was star photography up on top of the mountain. I was not sure if it was a good or bad idea since the temperature dropped drastically and the entire forest was pitch black. I was not even able to see 5 feet in front of me after sunset! Once the stars blanketed the sky, it made my wait up in the mountains worthwhile. Check out the quick preview of my experimentation on landscape photography!

I hope you all enjoyed this quick preview of my trip in Yosemite! Unfortunately, the snow was not melted so the waterfalls were rather small. Hopefully, I can make another trip out here during Spring to see the waterfalls at full blast! Happy 2014 everyone.

Cheers,

p.s. – Note to self and everyone who want to do these night photography – Bring extra batteries. My session was cut short when my battery died. ^_^

It was a beautiful summer afternoon when Wilson and I photographed Jessica and Michael’s engagement session in Downtown Los Angeles. Since these two live in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, it is only fitting to host their engagement photography session here. We started off their engagement session in their cozy apartment even when they were getting ready for the photo shoot. The subtle details before the actual shoot made their story a bit more complete. We ran around from the heart of Downtown LA, to the public park nearby, Los Angeles Union Station, Chinatown, Little Tokyo, and wrapped up their engagement photo session at beautiful Hotel Figueroa. This may seem like a lot of locations, but luckily everything was in Downtown LA and was only a few minutes driving distance between each location. The most challenging part was finding parking!

Jessica and Michael wanted something more edgy and a bit of spice in their engagement photos. These two were not traditional at all and wanted their photos to reflect how exciting and fun they are, and I must agree they are definitely interesting characters. Michael requested that his favorite Jeep was to be involved during their edgy engagement photo session; why not, right?! After we left their apartment, we parked his Jeep on a dirt path and lit up our strobes for some really sweet photos! After we wrapped up the edgy engagement photos with their Jeep, Jessica changed into an amazing traditional Chinese dress for our next location at Los Angeles Union Station. I must admit, the choice of her outfit and the era of LA Union Station matched perfectly! Since she was in her beautiful outfit, we chose to add a few extra edgy engagement photos in Chinatown to complete their outfits. Before we concluded the night, these two changed into a more elegant gown and wrapped up our edgy engagement photo session at Hotel Figueroa with some more classic black and white photos.

I hope you all enjoyed their amazing engagement photo session here in Los Angeles. Keep posted and wait for their elegant destination wedding photos from Four Seasons in Santa Barbara!

It was an exciting year of wedding photography for Furious Photographers. There were many joyous occasions and it was our pleasure to photograph every part of their happy events. Please enjoy the quick recap our our crazy engagement and wedding adventures from 2013!

1  Comments

It has definitely been a great year from beginning to end. There is a lot to be thankful about from all our adventures. We were honored to attend so many special weddings and participate as not only as wedding photographers, but bask in the love of everyone there. This year as wedding photographers took us all over the world to record so many precious moments. I must admit, this was one heck of a roller coaster ride filled with never ending excitement. I just cannot wait for what next year’s wedding photography will have in store for us. Hopefully next year we will not have any problems running into certain authorities; that I can tone down a bit! Either way, what is the fun of a wedding if we do not run into a bit of trouble along the way, right? Below is a quick highlight of the engagement, family, and wedding photos that we have photographed throughout the year. Unfortunately, I was not able to post all my favorite engagement and wedding photos on this post without creating too much clutter. Rest assure, I will get to blogging each and every one of these joyous events in detail with their own gallery of wonderful engagement and wedding photographs!

From our Furious Photographers crew, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a amazingly happy new year!
From your friendly neighborhood wedding photographers – Doug, Danny, Wilson, Geoff, Joseph, and Jason.

It was a sweet day when my good friends, Ann and Don, tied the knot here at The VIlla in Orange County. Check out their wedding photos filled with nothing short of awesome!

Hello all,

This next wedding blog is sweeter than usual. This lovely pair have known each other since elementary school and did not date until they were both in college. Ann was actually my first friend that I made during UCLA orientation. She was kind enough to introduce herself during that time and we all kicked it off nicely after that. It was not long after we all graduated college that Ann and Don dropped a line and broke in the big news about their wedding. It was definitely an honor to be not only her wedding photographer, but attend as a friend.

Ann and Don kick started their morning bright and early for the traditional Vietnamese wedding tea ceremony where both families were greeted and were given tea for their blessings. With everyone in their traditional Vietnamese wedding outfits, the room was filled with so much color along with laughter. Every wedding photo during this tea ceremony was a sure money shot! Once the tea ceremony concluded for both families, everyone headed their way to The Villa in Orange County for their next ceremony where all the friends and family eagerly waited. Ann beautifully walked down the aisle and all eyes were on her, especially Don’s. The wedding ceremony was short and sweet along with a few tears in between. Once everything was concluded, everyone just mingled, partied, and danced the rest of the night. A nice little surprise that Ann and Don had for their wedding guests was once the reception started, they had lion dancers perform to get everyone pumped and ready to party! Check out their quick wedding gallery below and enjoy the show.

Such a beautiful beach wedding in the summer with Amber and Mike! The temperature was pe

filed under: Wedding Photography

It was a beautiful sunny summer day in Long Beach when my lovely couple, Amber and Mike, tied the knot! Since they were locals in Long Beach, it was more sentimental for them to host their wedding on the beach. What was really intimate about this wedding was that everything was hosted at the beach a block away from their house and the wedding reception was hosted at their backyard. Something about backyard weddings make things so sweet. I suppose it is because almost everything about their wedding was hand crafted with love and thought.

Amber and her girls woke up bright and early to get their hair and makeup done while Mike and the boys hurried up and finalized the last bit of the wedding details. Since the wedding was at the beach, the cool breeze rolled in which was nice and a bit of a challenge for the alter to stay in place. The alter actually blew down a couple times before we totally anchored it down and knotted every pillar! Wilson and I lent a helping hand and secured the alter with the boys after we wrapped up the photos with the girls. I suppose being an Eagle Scout came in handy with the knots and staking the alter to the sand! Check it out.

The day cannot get any better than this! The sky was blue and not a cloud in sight. There were so many smiles and the love was abundant. Even though this was a wedding, everyone ran around all over the beach in their best dressed outfits!

Since the day was so beautiful, we took Amber and Mike around the beach for some wedding photographs of just the two of them. After running and jumping all over the place, we somehow wrapped up the wedding photography session up on a tree. Don’t ask how that happened.
