Greetings and welcome to my hand-spun blog+site. My photography journey has been incredible! It began with fun, then grew into passion, then I discovered profound love for it and there was no looking back. Please look around, the pictures here are the reflections of how I see the world. Enjoy exploring it.

Hotel DeAnza San Jose Wedding: Loryll + Chris

This was my most anticipated wedding of the year 2014! And why wouldn’t it be…the couple was no other than Loryll and Chris, Chloryll, as they are known to their close friends. I have known these two cuties for quite a long time and their wedding is the one we waited for quite sometime as well. So, when the day came, we all were surely very excited!

Loryll was breathtakingly beautiful as a bride. Chris, without a doubt was sharp and sleek in his gray suite. Their wedding location Hotel DeAnza definitely had the Gatsby style going. It was such a beautiful ceremony. Their close friends and families traveled from all around the country to witness their special day. Surrounded by the lush green garden and their loved ones next to them, Chris and Loryll took their vows, said their I do’s and promised to be together for the rest of their lives. I was all teary, as usual.

I had so much fun with the bridal party. We took a short hike across the street for some fun photos. Everybody rocked the night in style. Cool music, great people and the gorgeous couple kept the evening alive for a long time!

It was truly an honor for me to photograph the special day for Loryll and Chris. And I was so glad that I got to witness their milestone moment. L+C – wishing you the best, my friends. Have a fabulous journey together. XO

Old Sacramento Engagement: Marian + Kelvin

What a great way to spend a day in the heart of Old Sacramento! After postponing their engagement session a couple weeks in a row (due to the rain), I finally met up with Marian and Kelvin on one bright and sunny afternoon. It was a perfect day for the shoot. They had so much fun being cute in front of the camera and I was all warm and fuzzy seeing these two so smitten in love. Can’t wait for their wedding in the Cornerstone Gardens in Sonoma in March.

Finally getting back on the blogging bandwagon. Without further delays, here’s the highlights from Christine and Madhu’s gorgeous Indian Wedding reception in Thunder Valley Casino and Resort. Royal blue and jewel tones were all over the reception hall that night. And the bride and groom were undoubtedly a handsome pair.

Sacramento Capitol Park Engagement Session: L+C

I was trying to remember how long I have known them for. Seriously, it’s been that long! These two cuties have been together for as long as I can remember and who knows how many times I thought how cute they would be as my models for an engagement shoot! That thought was pretty much from when I was still relatively new in the business and was working my way through the ladder to find a space in the industry. I never knew that I would still be here today, photographing their engagement session, for real! Yes, this is the truth.

I was so excited when I learned about their engagement, not at the thought of photographing the event, but that it was finally happening. I saw the sparkle in her eyes, and he was very excited too. I was beyond happy and honored when Chris and Loryll asked me to photograph their wedding. I truly believe that the highest honor and testimony of all the hard work is when friends recognize it. And to have the opportunity to photograph friends’ special day is really honorable to me.

Chris and Loryll drove up from the Bay Area for their engagement session. We had a great time photographing around the Capitol park and in Old Sacramento. I think the images show the sweetness and love they share. I can’t wait to capture their wedding day in San Jose this Fall.
