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.

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.

Sacramento Capitol Park Wedding: Jessica + Doug

Beautiful memories captured at the final stop of their wedding road-trip. Doug and Jessica were so much fun to photograph. She had the moves, he had the grooves, a perfect couple made that day so perfect. J+D had a small ceremony at the Sacramento Capitol park, then a backyard wedding reception. Jessica changed into her traditional Chinese outfit and also had a tea ceremony before the cocktail hour.

Enjoy some of the highlights from their wedding day.

LDS wedding Sacramento: The Monsons

Last weekend I drove down to Sacramento LDS Temple to capture post sealing portraits of Jenna and Greg. This was the first time I was meeting the couple, they were super sweet. Jenna was absolutely gorgeous in her ivory grown, and Greg looked sharp in tan-lavender suite-tie. Jenna and Greg had close family member to receive them after the sealing, their reception will be held at Southern California where Jenna is from.

Congratulations, the newly-wed Monsons :) It was a a joy getting to know you and documenting your special day.
