Welcome!

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.

Roenna & Chris || Engagement

It was another busy but an exciting weekend for me. Jason and I went to San Francisco on Saturday to photograph Roenna & Chris’s engagement session. It was also the first time I met them. They had chosen the perfect location for the shoot – the place where it all began. It was in the San Francisco State University.

What a fun couple they were! I love when couples take it easy and have fun during the shoot. We started near the student center and walked our way to the Business department and ended at the Humanities building where they actually met for the first time. We had a chance to get into one of the classrooms and take some fun shots.

The campus was so beautiful. It was a cloudy and cold day too. Coming from Sacramento and not bringing any warm clothes with me, I was pretty much numb by the end of the shoot. There were colors everywhere; greenery of the trees, bright walls and windows, etc. We saw a beautiful corner with steps and yellow walls in the background which turned out to be a cool spot for pictures.

I am excited for Chris and Roenna’s wedding in January 09. It will be in Oakland and I know already that it will be a lot of fun. I’m looking forward to their wedding. Roenna & Chris – I hope you two enjoy these engagement teasers.

  • CA: I just wanted to say "thank you" for making me feel super comfortable during the photo-shoot. I'm usually a fish out of water in these situations and you made sure that Ro and I were at ease and comfortable. It was a pleasure working with you and I know that you will be doing a great job for our wedding!
