H&D| Lands End Engagement in San Francisco

Helen and David are engaged! We took the engagement photos at Lands End in San Francisco. I have been to Lands End many times for the engagement sessions. But this time, we were be able to hike the way down to the Eagle Point at Lands End. There is a maze at Eagle Point that faces the San Francisco bay. It is such a beautiful view and I am happy that Helen and David made it happen. Both of them did an amazing job, since Helen is pregnant already. I can’t wait to work with them for their wedding at Willow Heights Mansion in San Jose next year.


M&K| San Francisco Wedding Portratis

Mita and Kaiwen was married in Cancun Mexico last year. This year, we were happy to work with the cute couple to take some wedding portraits in San Francisco. It is a good time since it is almost their wedding anniversary. We decided to take some unique photos along with some general ones. So the first stop is at the Golden Gate Park, where we took some photos when the couple are on the boat. Since Golden Gate bridge is a landmark in the Bay area, when it was dark, I took one of my favorite shots with the couple in front of the Golden Gate Bridge, with their reflection shown in the water. It was cold and wet. After the photo shoot, Mita’s dress was completely wet and muddy; Kaiwen’s shoes were wet too. But it is well worth the effort. I have the photo as the proof:)

The following are some selected photos from the bridal portrait session in San Francisco. The first photo was taken with the bride and groom in front of the Golden Gate bridge.

J&J| La Foret Restaurant Wedding

Jessica & Jeff got married at La Foret Restaurant in south San Jose area. La Foret Restaurant is a special French restaurant in Bay Area. The food is delicate and delicious. La Foret Restaurant is also an ideal wedding venue for small and intimate weddings. The bride’s mom CYD is the wedding coordinator. She did an amazing job organizing everything together. Jessica & Jeff are down to earth and super easy to work with. Moreover, they invited a harpist to play the favorite light music. What a wonderful day! I enjoyed this wedding completely from the beginning to the end.

The following are some selected photos from this beautiful intimate wedding at La Foret restaurant in San Jose. Congratulations to you, Jessica & Jeff!

Bay Area Life Style Portrait with Helen

Having been busy with weddings this year, I love the opportunity working with Helen for the life style portrait project. Helen works in California real estate and has a busy life. I met Helen on her sister’s wedding in bay area. Helen is very beautiful with good fashion taste, so that I combined life style photo shoot with a touch of glamour photography. Because of limited time, we spent most of the time in San Jose. I especially love the settings at Casino M8trix. The red sofa forms a beautiful backdrop.

The following are some selected photos from this editorial life style photo shoot with Helen in San Jose. Thank you very much Helen!

R&J| Los Banos Backyard wedding

Rebecca & Joe got married at their parents’ house’s backyard in Los Banos, CA. The family spent lots of efforts preparing this special backyard wedding. They built the dance floor, awning, tables, bar, tent and more. Los Banos is about one hour and half’s drive from Bay area. I took Rebecca & Joe’s engagement photos at Los Banos last year. This year, Rebecca and Joe had a lovely daughter before their wedding. It was such a unique experience for us to document the special wedding day for this family. We love backyard weddings and we were very thankful to be part of the unforgettable event.

The following are some selected photos from this backyard wedding in Los Banos. Congratulations to you, Rebecca & Joe!
