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.


Okay, so I’m back from Vegas after attenting WPPI(Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) for the first time. I wonder why I waited that long to go to this convention! It was an incredible experience. I finally had a chance to hear from a few of the photographers I admire, I even took a picture with one of them ;) I’m loaded with information now and ready to get on action in full speed. I have to admit that I’m quite exhausted from all that travelling. I was just getting over from a cold and jetlag from my previous trip. Vegas trip added more to my exhaustion. But, like I said, I’m re-energized and re-inspired before my wedding season starts in 2 days. I couldn’t have attended WPPI at a better time.

I will write more about my first WPPI experience in future posts. Right now I want to relax and leave you with an image of a beautiful sunrise over the river Nile. This was taken from our cruise boat, right before our visit to Edfu Temple.

off to WPPI

Finally this year, I have managed to attend WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International). It was a last minutes plan! I was sick for a while, couldn’t decide if I should go or not. It was on Friday only when I pulled the trigger and arranged everything. So that means that I will be in Vegas..yippyyy…I think this will be a great way to kick off my wedding season. Immediately after I return from Vegas I will be shooting Meghan and Lukes spring wedding in Sacramento. It will only get crazier after that!!! Can’t wait!

I’m excited to be at WPPI this year. I don’t know my shcedule yet, but I know that I’ll be busy. I’ll be there for two days only, therefore, I plan to squeeze in as much as I can. I will be checking emails, don’t hesitate to contact me you have any questions for me.

I will be back in a few days…

Rainbows and pretty flowers

Friday was another rainy day here in Sac, it was windy too. Did I ever mention that two of my umbrellas are now partially dead? Thanks to the wind ghust! Usually I enjoy driving, but driving back from work to home is not much fun for me. I don’t like heavy and even slower traffic during rain and rush hour. But last Friday was a bit different; my drive down Folsom Blvd was rather exciting! Sun was shining on the falling rain and huuuuuuuuuge rainbows were right in front of me! Not one, not two, but three of them! I wanted to stop the car and take a photo, but stopping wasn’t an option. I was glad to have an iPhone again, I was able to capture a glimpse of the rainbows.

Sometimes I wonder how much do we really need in life to be happy! A day of rain, a bit of sunshine and a rainbow could be a good enough reason to smile that day and may be the newly bloomed spring flower the next day! These are the things that I believe bring excitment to our everyday life and remind us to be thankful for all that we have. No matter how simple they are, they make us happy, instantly!

Back and refreshed

Woohoo…I’m back from my trip from the mighty land where ancient civilizations were born. It was a trip of a life time! Simply spectacular! I’m so happy that we were able to do this at this time in life. However, I was ready come back after 8 days of heat and non-stop travel. Now I’m jet-lagged and a bit sick. I still feel I’m in the desert, dehydrated and sleep deprived. I’ll be back to my regular schedule once I catch up on some sleep. I have a loooooot to share, not to mention, many pictures of amazing sights of Cairo, Aswan, Luxor and Abu Simbel. For now, here is one for your eye candy … the panoramic view of the Pyramids in Giza.

As I mentioned earlier, I never imagined becoming a photographer, let alone starting my own photography business! To get a recognition, that was totally decided by the brides’ and grooms’ experience with me, is an ultimate honor. I’m glad to have found my passion doing a job that captures fond memories, love of tender hearts and the beauty and passion we all share. This is why I love doing what I do! I may get up one day and reject the idea of writing code, but hopefully, I will not stop capturing life as it goes on.
