Happy Holiday 2016


Fall Family Portraits in San Francisco

My favorite time of year in San Francisco is when our Fall looks like Spring ūüôā











Our 2015 Family Mini Sessions

The year went by so quick for us and doing a mini session is such a nice way to catch up again with our clients. Everyone we shot this year were our past clients and friends. We had such a blast shooting all our returning families and seeing their little family grow in size. It’s one of the most precious and fleeting moment to see how fast kids grow. These photos and videos will stop time just for a little while to remind us how beautiful our children are even on the toughest days with them (currently dealing with my 2.5 year old’s terrible twos).

Here’s a teaser and behind the scene of all our session from 1.5 weeks ago. We continue to love adding snippets of video into our portrait sessions to bring out the fun and excitement from the holiday. I can’t help but smile when editing these.

Ardenwood Historic Farm Wedding | Priscilla and Marvin

Priscilla and Marvin’s wedding at the Ardenwood Historic Farm was unbelievably beautiful. Who would have ever guessed a rustic garden venue is located right in the heart of the Bay Area, Fremont. We had so much fun at their wedding and can you tell they are the cutest cutest couple ever! They are so animated, goofy, and fun to be around. They compliment each other so well in every aspect. Remember their Mary Jane & Spiderman engagement session? So fun! Here’s a summary of their beautiful wedding. Oh, scroll down and check out Priscilla’s DIY marquee lights!
