Anne + Andrew | San Pedro Engagement Photography

Blog post by Felicia

Earlier this week, we were headed to Anne & Andrew’s engagement shoot in stop-and-go traffic when we got rear-ended hard on the freeway, and the impact shoved us into the car in front of us. Shaken but otherwise (generally) unscathed, we eventually lost sight of the car that hit us. While I called 911, Rob called Anne & Andrew to let them know, in case we had to reschedule: LAPD informed us that they were really busy, and would dispatch an officer when one was available.

Thankfully, we always leave for shoots with a LOT of buffer time, and after a CHP officer arrived at the scene, we sufficiently composed ourselves and made our way to San Pedro for the shoot, arriving well on time.

It was also “one of those days” for Anne & Andrew – including misadventures with accidentally-dyed pants – so we were glad that we could at least go ahead with their shoot as planned.

Luckily for us, Anne & Andrew are so comfortable with each other and were a breeze to photograph. Enjoying easy banter with Anne & Andrew helped me temporarily ignore the nagging strain in my neck, back, and shoulders, although that night I truly felt how bloody heavy my favorite lens is!

Thanks Anne & Andrew for the lighthearted shoot!

Reed + Katina | Sir Francis Drake Wedding

July 21st, 2014:

Sir, Francis, Drake, San, Francisco, Destination, Wedding, Photography, CaliforniaBlog post by Felicia

June was the month for destination weddings, as we flew from Sebastien & Liyi’s multi-day wedding weekend in France, directly to San Francisco for Katina & Reed’s.

We started their wedding day at Sir Francis Drake Hotel on Pride Weekend – which made for nerve-wracking ‘surge pricing’ on Uber – then headed over to Sutro Heights for their ceremony by the sea. We love it when clients make the ceremony their own, and Katina & Reed included references to Robin Hood, Princess Bride, and the Game of Thrones theme for the recessional.

Later that night, we joined them at the Boom Boom Room where a Phish cover band played a set list curated by the newlyweds, and Reed even surprised  Katina by joining the band on stage!

Congrats Katina & Reed. Have an amazing life together, and with Dragon & Damsel too!

Samantha + Mike | California Pre Wedding

Blog post by Felicia

Several months ago, Samantha & Mike came from Singapore to California for their engagement photos.

In case you’re wondering: In Asia, these are commonly dubbed “pre-wedding photos”, where the bride actually puts on a white dress, since, on a hectic wedding day, there is usually little time for bride & groom portraits. It’s interesting to note that the white dresses worn during pre-wedding photos aren’t usually the ones the bride would wear on the actual wedding day. (In Singapore, the dresses are rented, so having 5-7 gowns from engagement photos through wedding day is the norm for a typical wedding.)

Sam & Mike requested a “best-of-California” type shoot with major landmarks, and we managed to fit in a diverse range of settings within a couple of days: from the ragged coastline of 17 Mile Drive in Monterey, to San Francisco’s opulent City Hall, iconic Golden Gate Bride and the Victorian Painted Ladies, to the desert landscape of Joshua Tree National Park.

The lovely couple just got married in Singapore today, and we are so happy for them! Congratulations Sam & Mike!

Katelyn + Jeff | Strawberry Farms Wedding

July 9th, 2014:

Strawberry, Farms, Wedding, Photography, Photographer, Golf, Course, Orange, County, California,Blog post by Felicia

When I think of Irvine, I think of spanking new developments and new buildings. It came as a surprise that Strawberry Farms Golf Club is nestled away from the ever-expanding townhome communities, and we found ourselves in a rustic setting, complete with a barn! This was a stark contrast to urban Los Angeles where we last saw Katelyn & Jeff for their engagement shoot, making for an awesome variety of pictures.

For the second time in as many months, we witnessed a parent officiate the ceremony, which is always endearing: in this case, Jeff’s father did the honors.

After the ceremony, everyone took respite from the warm June day as the reception moved indoors, and the guests really upped the tempo and partied the rest of the night away with the newlyweds.

Congrats Katelyn & Jeff. Thank you for having us!

Jake + Noelle | Paso Robles Engagement

Paso, Robles, Vineyard, Winery, Engagement, Photography, Photographer, Destination

Blog post by Felicia

Jake & Noelle live up in the Bay Area, so we first “met” them through a Skype call. It was one of those times when we just hit it off instantly. When we ended the call, Rob and I looked at each other and agreed, we sure hope they would book us, because they’re just such cool people and we really wanted to meet them.

Thankfully, Jake & Noelle liked us enough to want us hanging around on their wedding day too, so last week, after jetting from France to San Francisco to Burbank, we slept in our bed for one night, picked up our Prius, and headed back north to Paso Robles for their engagement shoot at two wineries.

We spent a good part of the day with these two, trading stories and LOTS of laughs. I wasn’t sure it was possible, but they’re even more awesome in real life than on Skype! After coming off so much travel, it was so refreshing and invigorating to be with excellent company. It also helped that they made our job ridiculously easy. What a perfect shoot to come home to!

Thank you Jake & Noelle for being INCREDIBLE. Can’t wait to see you again!

Travel Portfolio Updated!

June 13th, 2014:

Recently I had a free afternoon and got to something I have been meaning to do for a long time, update my websites travel gallery.  (Woot Woot!)

Over the past 15 years I have travelled to about 40 countries (the stories of which are detailed in this very blog) and lately I have been planning trips in my head and thinking about doing a few photo centric adventures in the next couple of years. No specific plans just yet, but I am ready to start bringing my travel images to the next level.   Anyhow, here are a few pictures that popped out and inspired me while I combed through 10 years of photography, be sure to check out my whole gallery here.

Jen + Mike | Camarillo Ranch Wedding Photography

Camarillo, Ranch, Wedding, Photography, Ventura, California, Photographer. Rustic,

Last weekend we headed out to Camarillo Ranch for Jen & Mike’s wedding, and when we got there, we found a very busy crew setting up lights, like there was a small production going on. We weren’t surprised, since Jen & Mike both work in the industry, so their friends powered up the lights and fog machines to make it a reception to remember.

Despite several little hiccups early in the day, Jen & Mike maintained an awesome attitude and partied the night away. At one point, Felicia said to me, “Wow it feels like a Tenacious D concert in here!”

And that’s a compliment indeed.

Congrats Jen & Mike!

Vince + Jen | Los Angeles Arboretum

Blog post by Felicia 

Earlier this week we met up with Vince & Jen for their engagement shoot at the LA Arboretum. Unfortunately it was a sweltering hot day, but they were still good sports, traipsing all over the expansive grounds, and… Vince impressed us with his mimicry of peacock calls. If you’ve never heard a real peacock’s call, it sounds like a mix of cats in heat and a petulant screaming child. Borderline creepy.

Thankfully we weren’t harmed by the peafowl, and had a wonderful time despite the heat.

See you next month!

Roseanne contacted us just a couple of months ago, finding us through Clare. We met with her and Michael, and were glad that they shared our philosophy towards weddings: that it is a big party where you should have fun, and not stress about the nitty-gritty things, don’t sweat the small stuff.

Indeed, they were one of our most laid-back couples, truly enjoying each other and each moment, without worrying about logistical details. Their ceremony at Wayfarers Chapel in Palos Verdes was heartfelt & warm, and when it came time for the reception at Terranea Resort, they hung out with their closest friends & family, catching up, partying, and just having a great time in general.

And that’s all there is to it: the wedding is one big party, a celebration with those closest to you. Be present, and enjoy!

Congratulations, Roseanne & Michael! Thank you for having us!

Blog post by Felicia

Every year so far, we have been fortunate enough to be part of weddings where we felt like we were hanging out with our friends while taking pictures, and this year, it was Francis & Christina’s wedding day.

We last saw them in New York when we enjoyed 9am cupcakes during their engagement session, and of course, this time, Christina tried to ply us with bahn mi sandwiches once we arrived. Julia Child was right: People who love to eat are the best people!

We started their day with a ceremony at St Justin the Martyr, Christina’s childhood church, stopped for pictures at the Crystal Cathedral – where Francis demonstrated that he wasn’t really the stern “Asian Dad” we thought he might be – before ending the night at Mon Cheri in Garden Grove.

It was a long day, but an incredible one. Thank you, Francis & Christina for being absolutely amazing people, and to your bridal party for being so much fun. Congratulations!
