Carmen + Edmond: A Palo Alto Hills Golf and Country Club Wedding

I’m a big believer that a couple who laughs often and has fun together, stays together. And if that’s the case, then Carmen and Edmond are destined to have a thriving and happy marriage.  Because these two are all about making each other smile and having a good time. And who doesn’t love people like that?

Their big day began with a heartfelt and sweet ceremony in San Mateo that was followed by a lovely reception at the Palo Alto Hills Golf and Country Club. Their family and friends were so warm and kind.  It was a special day that was a complete joy to be a part of.

Thank you Carmen and Edmond so much for the honor of documenting your wedding.  It was a true pleasure and wishing you both all the best in your bright future together.  xoxo

Carol + Daniel: A Pacifica and Daly City Wedding

One thing I adore most about shooting weddings is that no matter how many weddings we are a part of, each and every one of them are entirely unique and full of their own special moments.  Their own beautiful details.  It’s one of the reasons why my love for wedding photography has only grown over the years.  There’s nothing quite like being able to witness and document true love on such a special day in two people’s lives.

I was looking forward to this wedding since the moment I met Carol and Daniel.  They are such a kindhearted and sweet couple who care so deeply for one another.  The morning of their big day started in Pacifica.  It was filled with pretty details (including one of the loveliest dress details I’ve photographed.  I was obsessed with the buttons on the back of her dress), oceanside views and lots and lots of smiles.  Photography was a priority for Carol and Daniel and those kind of couples make me so happy.  They allowed extra time for photos both before and after the ceremony which I love so much.  It was a truly beautiful day celebrating their love as they were surrounded by those who mean the most to them.

Carol and Daniel, it’s been a true honor getting to know you both and document such a special time in your lives.  Thank you both for being so sweet and a complete a pleasure to work with.  I can’t wait to see all that God has in store for your bright future together.  Wishing you a lifetime of love and blessings!  xoxo

Wendy + Johnson: A Pulgas Water Temple Wedding In Redwood City

Their bright, beaming smiles said it all. Truly these two are best friends and the love they have for one another is so beautiful. It filled their wedding day with such warmth and joy.  And it was such a blessing to document and be a part of.

Wendy and Johnson are one of those couples that everyone instantly loves. They have such kind hearts that care not only for each other but everyone else around them. They are as sweet of a couple as they come and their wedding day was equally as special. From their adorable first look, to their breathtakingly gorgeous ceremony, to their reception that was filled with touching speeches and heartfelt moments, Wendy and Johnson’s wedding day was nothing short of amazing.

Wendy and Johnson, I’m so thankful our paths crossed and for the honor of being a part of one of the most important days of your lives. It’s been such fun getting to know you both this past year.  Wishing you two a lifetime of love!  xoxo

Oh Baby, We’re Expecting!

We’re oh so excited to announce that we’re having a baby! Our own little mini Chan that we can’t wait to hold and kiss and shower with love. It’s almost hard to believe that this dream is real and that there is an actual little person growing inside me. We’re so thankful for this blessing from God. Being able to hear the heartbeat and see the little one at our first ultrasound was one of the happiest moments of my entire life.

I’m almost 14 weeks along which means goodbye first trimester! I have so much respect for all you mamas and pregnant ladies out there because boy, is morning sickness no joke.  It’s been a battle to keep food down and try and eat healthy when everything makes you nauseous and your body wants to do nothing but sleep.  Hoping that aspect of pregnancy will soon be behind me but thankfully the little one is doing great! Things are progressing normally and we’re so thrilled for the journey ahead.

Baby Chan is due in March and we get to find out whether the little one will be a boy or a girl next month.  I’m positive it’s going to be a boy and Matt is sure it’s a girl.  Either way, we couldn’t be more excited and can’t wait to be parents!  xoxo

And Chloe couldn’t be any sweeter.  I definitely think she knows I’m pregnant as she has been extra protective and cuddly with me these
past few months. I’m sure she can’t wait to be a big sister and for her new pal to arrive!

Michelle + Jake: Moss Beach Engagement in Half Moon Bay

I love getting the opportunity to photograph couples who come out to visit California from other parts of the country.  I adore meeting people from all over and it also helps me view California with a fresh perspective.  I often take for granted how vast and varied our landscape is and it’s one of the reasons why I love living here so much.  That’s why seeing it through a visitor’s eyes is sometimes so refreshing.

I had been wanting to do a shoot at Moss Beach for months and months and I thought this session would be the perfect one for this location.  Half Moon Bay is notorious for being cloudy on almost every shoot we have had there but on this particular day, the sun was shining and the light could not have been any more lovely.  Pair that with a couple like Michelle and Jake and you get one amazing session.   I love couples who are affectionate and playful with each other and these two were total naturals in front of the camera.  Thank you Michelle and Jake for a wonderful afternoon by the beach.  You two were such fun to photograph!  xoxo
