Hood Stephanie and Chase chosen their photo session at Mt. Hood. They were willing to go freeze under the falling snow and trusted me with my location advice. We started photo shooting at the national historic landmark, Timberline Lodge. It was windy and cold, but photo shooting in the snow was a lot of fun. I love the beautiful soft light reflected from the bright snow. It was too windy, and we had to move to another location at lower elevation. There was a lot of snow coming down at almost the end of the session. It was amazing!!!

Thank you Stephanie and Chase for a fun session, and you were an awsome couple. I can’t wait to document your wedding for you!

Here is a sneak peek of their photos..

Franciscan Garden & Mission San Juan Capistrano Wedding – Ana & Cesar What can I say about Ana and Cesar’s wedding? Elegant, Spanish, party-fun, detailed, detailed and detailed. Ana and Cesar had their wedding at the beautiful Franciscan Garden, San Juan Capistrano. Everything in their wedding had that elegant Spanish style in them, including Ana’s wedding gown, invitation, letterpress program, name card, music, etc…Each center piece was set up in a different antique vase and tray. Their “candy bar” were filled with the Mexican sweets. It was my first time trying De La Rosa Mazapan, which tasted amazingly good!!! Ana and Cesar put everything together to make the wedding very unique and beautiful…Ana and Cesar were super easy going and great to work with. It was a big honored to be part of their wedding!!

SYDNEY & JOHN’S WEDDING – THE CHURCH OF OUR SAVIOUR Sydney and John made themselves a really beautiful and fun wedding.  They had not only casino games for adults, but also game table for kids as well. They even hired professional Swing Dancers to give all the guests a Swing Dance lesson. You can tell how much they care about their family and friends and made sure that they all had fun on their big day. I’m sure all the guests had a wonderful time… including me.

Hillcrest Terrace Fullerton Wedding – Christine & Achilles What is the best part of a wedding? For me, it’s all about family, friends, and fun. Christine had her wedding at the Hillcrest Park, which is a perfect location for outdoor wedding. The beautiful ceremony was under a big oak tree in the park, and the reception was hosted at Hillcrest Terrace. The couple’s wedding was fun to the adults as well as the kids. There was a playground for kids to hang out, run and having fun. It was a beautiful night, and everyone had fun dancing under the full moon.  I had a great time shooting the wedding, too.

Christine & Andrew’s Engagement Session – Crystal Cove It has been busy lately and many photos that I like have not been posted on the blog, I’ll start posting more..I did Christine and Andrew’s Engagement Session couple months ago at the beautiful Crystal Cove. Different than other beach side, Crystal Cove is a permitted beach, it’s peaceful with less people… It was not crowded at all at the location that we picked, so we took our time to walk on the shore and I got some favor beach shots…Christine and Andrew are really easy going and fun couple, it was really relaxing shooting with them. I am looking forward to seeing them again next year at their wedding!!

Nicole & Daniel’s Wedding – Tiburon & Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco Nicole and Daniel had their wedding at Tiburon few weeks ago. Because we wanted to have a shot of the Golden Gate Bridge, they drove around and did some location scouting during weekends before the wedding day…..and they found this prefect spot. It took us about 30 mins to get to the location, and we had some good shots with the Golden Gate Bridge and city view as background!!! Thanks for finding this perfect spot, Nicole and Daniel!

Summit House Fullerton Wedding – Stephanie & Wesley Five years ago, Lynn and I got married at Summit House…Five years later, same day and same place, but my role has been changed from groom to the photographer..
I love Summit House. This place is beautiful and cozy.  The wedding gazebo is right next to the reception ballroom, which allows us to have more time for the photo session. The meadow behind the restaurant is also excellent for photo shooting. Every year, Lynn and I would go back to the Summit House for our anniversary, and it has been our tradition now, and we will keep doing that.

Ally & Michael’s Engagement Session – Irvine Regional Park Ally and Michael had their wedding at Mariners Church, Irvine. When they were choosing the engagement session location, they wanted something with nature scenes. Therefore, we decided to have their photo shoot at Irvine Regional Park, which was not far from my place…It was a fun afternoon without many people in the park. One photo you’ll see with fog behind them… that was not fog, It was  the smoke coming out from someone’s BBQ…and I love that shot!!!

Christine & Achilles’ Engagement Photo Session – Laguna Niguel Regional Park Christine is a very nice and sweet lady. I remember the first time I met her was the day that my wife, Lynn, was about to deliver the baby, and Christine told me to take my time and take care of my family first then deal with her later…couple weeks later, she booked me for her wedding…Christine picked the Laguna Niguel Regional Park for the photo shooting, and she even drew me a map to show me some good ideas for the shooting spots.  On the shooting day, we had their little boy Elijah join us. He was more like my little assistant… He was very cute and awesome!!! I think the photos turned out great, and the images reflected the couple’s lifestyle well..

Lina & Andrew’s Cambodian + Western Wedding I love my job because I can always feel the love and the happiness from every couple’s smiles and the energy from the different families.
Lina and Andrew had a two-day wedding. They had the Cambodian ceremony on the first day, and the Western one the next day.
I especially like the Cambodian ceremony because of the details, beautiful outfits, etc. It was my pleasure to be part of the both events.
Below are some images from their big two-day wedding!!

Western Ceremony: Westridge Golf Club. La Habra.
Reception: Mon Amour. Anaheim.

Family Camping for the First Time – The Best Father’s Day I have always wanted to take my kids to camping,  so we went to The Angeles Nation Forest for two nights on Father’s day. We were lucky to find this beautiful site in the forest with an Bear-Saver on the site,  so we didn’t need to worry about our food being stolen by a bear like what happened last time.  It was nice without phone calls and emails for a couple of days. We will definitely take our boys out more often.
