G&G| Popp Fountain wedding at New Orleans City Park

Gillian & George got married at the beautiful Popp Foutain and Arbor Room, New Orleans City Park. This is a destination wedding photography gig and I was honored to be part of their big day. The bride and groom booked me through the internet without meeting in person.

The weather was fantastic and the wedding was just perfect. We started in the early morning where Gillian & George got ready for the wedding day in a local hotel in New Orleans. The water in the Popp Fountain formed a beautiful drop during the wedding ceremony. After the wedding ceremony, we walked around New Orleans City Park for more wedding portraits. This was such an unforgettable trip. Because not only I was able to capture a gorgeous wedding in this charming city of New Orleans, but also I was able to taste some fantastic seafood. For sure that I will come back to New Orleans to photograph more weddings in the future.

The following are some selected photos from this wedding. Congratulations to you, Gillian and George!

Z&X| San Francisco Wedding Dress/Bridal Portrait Session

Zhiya & Xiaoyu are getting married soon. So I had pleasure working with them for the wedding dress/bridal portrait session in San Francisco. Our first photography site is the Palace of Fine Arts. The Palace of Fine Arts is a popular wedding venue in San Francisco. Our last site is very exciting, because it is one of the highest places in San Francisco, Twin Peaks. Moreover, the photoshoot is at night time.

The following are some selected photos from this pre-wedding photo shoot in San Francisco. I can’t wait working with them for their weddings.

V&R| Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery Wedding

Victoria & Rick got married! Their wedding venue is at beautiful Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery, Pleasanton, CA. I worked with them for their engagement session at east bay area last year. It was great to work with them again. I love winery weddings because of the special romance atmosphere filled with fruity red wine and aromatic white wine. Victoria and Rick decided to see each other before the wedding ceremony, which gave us plenty of time photographing two of them and the wedding party. Their first look was so touching that it was one of my most favorite first look shot. You could feel the true love between them. I took the last set of photos for them when it was completely dark.

The following are some selected photos from Victoria & Rick’s wedding of Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery. Congratulations to you, Victoria & Rick!

K&J | Baker Beach engagement

Katie & Jeremy plan to get married in a beautiful wedding venue in east bay area. So they decided to take engagement photos and use them for invitation purpose. I was happy working with them at Baker beach, San Francisco for the engagement photos. We spent the whole time walking around the beach. It was amazing how much variety Baker beach was providing for the photo opportunities. Katie and Jeremy also brought their dog to take the save the date photo. The dog was very active and we had lots of fun posing her. She moved so fast that I had less than a second to take the perfect shot.

(DVD) I have always been a fan of Julia Roberts and the movies she stars in – her smile is infectious, it lights up the screen. In 1997, she made a comeback with a starring role in the romantic comedy My Best Friend’s Wedding. The film went on to become one of the most successful girly movies of the whole decade, and after watching it earlier tonight on TV, it’s not hard to see why. It still holds up seven years later. The comedy is fresh, funky and slick. The plot is nothing original, but it holds up brilliantly because of the film’s four main stars. You have Julia Roberts, of course, who is no doubt a future Hollywood legend. Then there’s Cameron Diaz in one of her best film roles – not quite topping her sexual cameo in The Mask three years earlier, but still bringing much humour to her role. Rupert Everett and Dermot Mulroney are the two main male actors and also do their roles justice.Julia Roberts plays Julianne Potter, a fast-talking confident Chicago food critic who used to date Michael O’Neal (Dermot Mulroney) in their college days. They since broke up after nine years and moved apart. They made a pact, however, that if by the age of 28 they both were not married, then they would marry each other. When Julianne receives a call from Michael three weeks before that pact deadline, she assumes he is ringing to get back with her. However, Michael is calling to introduce Julianne to his seemingly wonderful, irritatingly perfect fiancee Kimberly Wallace (Cameron Diaz) and announce their wedding which is taking place in just three days. That leaves Julianne three short days to break up the marriage and win back the man she has only just realised she loved all along. She will either win or lose – that’s the conclusion. Ronald Bass’ perfectly-constructed screenplay keeps the viewer on the edge, forever guessing if she will win her battle. Julianne’s gay friend George Downes (Rupert Everett) agrees to help her, but only to a certain extent, and he is a hilarious asset to the comedic intentions put forth by the writers of the film.The film’s plot seems at times far-fetched, and it is, but this is a light-hearted, romantic comedy with many clichés built in for good measure! The comedy is spot-on – there aren’t many laugh out loud moments, but more of a continual giggle-fest that will have you smiling for most of the film. Julia Roberts is a certain crowd-puller.

While marriage is common to most cultures, the customs surrounding the ceremony vary greatly. For a Christian couple, the primary concern is not whether their wedding will fulfill all the expectations of local custom. (Romans 12:2) Rather, their paramount desire is to conduct their courtship and marriage in a way that brings honor to Jehovah God.—1 Corinthians 10:31.Since marriage is an honorable arrangement, it is not something most couples would want to keep secret. In many Western lands, couples among Jehovah’s Witnesses commonly arrange to be married in a ceremony at their local Kingdom Hall. Afterward, they may choose to hold a reception where they share a meal and possibly some entertainment with family and friends. Such occasions need not be elaborate. It must be admitted, though, that organizing a wedding and a reception is stressful and may entail considerable expense. For example, in the United States, wedding receptions often cost thousands of dollars.

S&C | Stanford University Engagement

I had pleasure working with Sasha & Callum for their engagement session in Stanford University and Palo Alto downtown. Stanford University campus is very beautiful, even in the Winter day. Memorial church at Stanford University is a very popular wedding ceremony site. Sasha and Callum got to know each other at Stanford University. So this engagement session has special meaning for them. We first started from the graduate school area and then went inside the classroom for some fun photos. When it is dark, we headed to Palo Alto downtown area for some night photos.

The following are some selected photos from this engagement session at Stanford University. I can’t wait to work with them for their wedding.SC_Stanford_university_engagement_093sSC_Stanford_university_engagement_024sSC_Stanford_university_engagement_026sSC_Stanford_university_engagement_031sSC_Stanford_university_engagement_034sSC_Stanford_university_engagement_011sSC_Stanford_university_engagement_045sSC_Stanford_university_engagement_044sSC_Stanford_university_engagement_058sSC_Stanford_university_engagement_071sSC_Stanford_university_engagement_073sSC_Stanford_university_engagement_080sSC_Stanford_university_engagement_091sSC_Stanford_university_engagement_100sSC_Stanford_university_engagement_102s
