It was a beautiful day for this cute and lovely couple’s wedding here in Alhambra, Los Angeles. Check out the quick highlights from their wedding gallery!

All I have to say about my next wedding couple is that they are one of the cutest pair ever. Aside from Shannen’s love of Hello Kitty throughout their house, their humble abode was so tastefully decorated. Every detail of their house was taken with rather specific attention. They have the cutest house with a nice garden to match the attire. Their tasteful and cute house matched their personalities rather accurately. You can see their house through the wedding photos below to be your own judge. Aside from their home, they kept their wedding as simple and enjoyable as possible. Everyone started bright and early with an intimate tea ceremony at their house with a select few of their closest relatives. Afterward, we all took off around Alhambra and San Gabriel to take a series of really fun wedding photos. Through their portrait session, I just had to photo bomb one of their wedding pictures. I think I pulled it off quite nicely!

Once their wedding portrait session concluded, we all headed toward a local banquet hall in Alhambra to get the party started! Everyone attended were dressed to impressed and ready to mingle. There were plenty of hugs, laughter, and excitement throughout the night. To keep their wedding guests constantly entertained during the reception, there were a handful of games that were played that involved not only Shannen and Ting, but a few brave volunteers from the audience to get the crowd cheering. I had to admit that some of the games were for adults only as you will also see that below in their wedding gallery. Once dinner wrapped up and finished, everyone jumped on their dance floor and showed off their best moves. Enjoy.

It was a beautiful day and a beautiful wedding in Condor’s Ranch in Pala where Jennifer and Cyrus got hitched! See the tear jerking, hilarious moments, and epic ending to this wedding!

I must say, my beautiful couple for this wedding blog entry seriously knew how to throw down a party! From beginning to end, the energy these two gave out throughout the wedding was nothing less of amazing. I met Jennifer for the first time during my visit to New York on one extremely cold January and we kicked off nicely with her band of crazy friends. I am not going to get into detail about what happened in New York, but let us just say it was definitely a memorable one. Years after our first encounter, I was honored when she picked me to photograph her lovely wedding, especially in my side of the country where it is a bit warmer! Overall, this wedding trumped all the crazy shenanigans we did in New York.

Jennifer and Cyrus’ big day started off with the girls off in their side of the Ranch with makeup and hairspray in the air. My dear friend Gina (MOH) kept the spirit up with her awesome karaoke to Pandora that streamed in the background. The boys definitely had a different approach to a relaxing morning. It consisted with polishing a nice bottle of Glenlivet (18 year of course) and discussion of how to improve their Magic the Gathering decks. I was able to relate just nicely since I revolved a good portion of my teenage years with that card game. Once both sides of the wedding party were prepped up and ready to rock, we started their wedding photography session before their ceremony. The ranch hand plenty of colorful locations for there photos. One after another, we snapped away and recorded the “money shots” and everything in between when they goofed off throughout the day. Their wedding ceremony was short, sweet, and had a few tears along the way. Once the first ceremony was over, Jennifer and Cyrus kept it traditional with some beautifully colored Korean outfits while they honored the parents and elders.

At the time of their wedding, the popular song, Gangnam Style by PSY, was made hits all over the airwaves. What better way to make a grand entrance than to dance to that song! It surprised everything even myself since this was actually the first time I have heard of this song. I suppose I am more of an Oldies Beatles kind of guy, but I must admit that song had a really catchy beat! Their dance worked up an appetite and everyone’s adrenaline settled down, everyone mingled, enjoyed dinner, and shared some touching speeches throughout the night. Once the itinerary was all wrapped up and finished, the party really started…might be overboard, but that is a matter of perspective. Let us just say the wedding party ended up partying in the pool at the end of the night. I will let their wedding photos tell the rest of the story. Enjoy!

Amazing destination wedding photography at Four Seasons in Santa Barbara with Jessica and Michael! Check out their wonderful wedding pictures.

0  Comments

It is finally time to post the lovely Jessica and Michael’s destination wedding photos! It was a beautiful morning when we all headed up north to Santa Barbara Four Seasons where Jessica and Michael prepped up for their grand day. The ladies all started their day bright and early at a local boutique hotel where their makeup artists did a great job and Michael and the boys horsed around while they suited up. From Jessica’s amazing wedding dress to the flower arrangements, everything was planned perfectly. Words cannot really describe how beautiful their wedding was, so I will just let their wedding photos do the talking.

On a side note here at Four Seasons, there were one hilarious outtake after another. I believe that despite how perfectly you plan your wedding, the unexpected turn of events are what makes a wedding so memorable; nerve racking or not! One of the more memorable outtake was 5 minutes before their wedding ceremony, the alter collapsed from the wind! All the wedding vendors quickly rushed to the alter and tried to put it back together. We facilitated each vendor to hold up a pillar while I tied everything down with telephone cables (that was all I could find at the moment). Once everything was tied down, we anchored it with sandbags from our light stands. We did everything we could at the moment and just prayed it will last through the quick ceremony before the wind wanted to go for a second round. Luckily everything stood strong throughout the ceremony and their wedding photos turned out perfectly. The rest of the day went according to plan during their reception and everyone danced the night away from Jack Hou’s sweet beats. Enjoy!

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

0  Comments

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.

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!
