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.

Donaji + Ryan

It was my first time meeting Donaji and Ryan last weekend. We only “spoke” about their wedding via emails when the wedding planning had just started; that was all I needed to be so worked up for their big day! Both Donaji and Ryan spent years in the Military. The couple got engaged in December and recently moved back home to Lodi from West Verginia. Since we didn’t have a chance to meet up earlier, we decided to get together last Saturday to discuss more in detail. They are going with the earthy, natural, warm tones for their wedding, which is going to be perfect for their fall ceremony in the Grand Island Mansion.

I took a couple snaps of them before they left. The corner around the bookstore was my studio :)

Too little time, too many things to do!

No, I am not giving excuses. Between work, meetings, reorganizing, rebranding and reinventing my business, I’m hardly finding any time to spend on here. But let me tell you that there are many things happening in the background. You’ll get some exciting news soon, (may be in a month or so, it’s in works)!!! I am going to have a super busy May and June. It’s a lot to take in, but it’s going to be very exciting. The changes are going to be great! Stay tuned.

No post is complete without pictures. So I’m gonna leave you with some pretty pictures for your eye candy. These are from our hike by the Folsom lake (yes, we went there again, but to a different point this time).
Purple was the theme of the day. Purple wild flowers were everywhere…

It was 90 something degrees that day. So hot for April…but perfect for a day by the lake. People were out already…

The water was ice-cold from the melting snow.

The sun was high, but made it a great day for a nice hike. Will be back there soon for sure …

Michelle + Trevor || Engagement

It was an awesome day yesterday(Sunday). Weather was just perfect. A day like yesterday couldn’t be let go without making it a day for a perfect photo shoot :) So, we drove down to Old Sacramento for Michelle & Trevor’s engagement session. M+T got engaged in December in Disney Land. Trevor surprised Michelle by asking her to marry him in front of the Castle! Could Michelle say anything but “Yes”!!! They love Disney land, I wish we lived in SoCal and shot their e-session in the Disney Land!

It was fun shooting with M+T. Trevor was a uber cool super model :)) and Michelle was simply beautiful with her soft smile. They sure were a lot of fun. Trevor knew all the cool moves and tricks that I was so impressed with! I can’t wait to see what he does on their big day

I am very excited for Michelle and Trevor’s fall wedding in South Lake Tahoe. I know it’s going to be beautiful and with Trevor’s humour, it gotta be super fun! Congratulations guys, I can’t wait to shoot your wedding!

Song of the month

Like many, I’m a music enthusiast. Growing up in an Asian household, I was bound to take some level of music lessons. While I quit singing long time back, I didn’t leave my love for music behind. I have to listen to music when I am cooking, cleaning, folding laundry, editing(definitely) and even when I’m coding! I think Pandora is awesome. Basically, I listen to >pandora all day long. Try it out if you are yet to.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Grey’s Anatomy. I think the show uses the best music in the industry. I can’t say enough about this show, I don’t know how my Thursaday nights will be when this show is over!!! I’m also a BIG fan of American Idol. There are only three TV shows I watch regularly, AI is one them. I can’t decide who to root for this year. I guess I’ll wait until it comes down to top 6. This brings us to the song of the month (from me for you). I heard the song this week at AI, performed by Megan Joy. I found the cover of this song by Lauryn Hill with Bob Marley(It’s a song by Bob Marley). Although I’m not into rapping, hip-hop and all that, I fell in love with this song. Hope you enjoy it too.

Happy Friday…

  • Sylvia Borgo Photography: Great clip! I also listen to Pandora all day! I can't edit without it! :)
