Melody and Andy | Engagement | Loma Linda

Melody and Andy are such a fun loving couple!!:DWe definitely had a “whale” of a good time ha-ha.  Melody absolutely LOVES whales, we had a stuffed animal whale, whale dress, whale rain boots, it was perfect! I first met Melody when I was a new at our adolescent years church: CBCOC. She left such a wonderful impression and I wanted to return over and over.  As an awkward 7th grader, meeting a bunch of people after moving to a new town is always intimidating. New school, new Church, new everything! [I thought it was the end of the world] However on my first night at youth group, she welcomed me with a huge smile and made me feel like I belonged. Needless to say I returned, and it became my home church all through my high school years.:) Her friendly nature and bright smile hasn’t changed a bit over the years! I am so honored to share their adorable engagement set!!:D Enjoy!



Esther and Mike | Yacht Wedding | Commodore Cruises | San Francisco Bay

Esther and Mike are two people I hold super dear to my heart. So thoughtful, considerate and generous: they wanted nothing more than all their guest to have an absolute BLAST at their wedding. True to their wishes, their wedding was an absolute smash! It was full of fun, performances and laughter all around!

All aboard the Grand Cabernet Sauvignon Yacht, we sailed off into the Golden Gate Bride Horizon!:) The adorable details adorning the banquet hall are definitely worth geeking out on. [Especially Esthers Periodic Table seating chart!] Enjoy this wedding adventure from day to night! From morning tea ceremony antics, to a choreographed swing dance, to a fun tassel glow stick sparkler exit. So much fun! ^^

Tea ceremony antics had all of us laughing till our stomachs hurt.:D

Fun Bridal Party Gif! ^^

The Ng Family | Santiago Oaks | Orange County

The Ng Family is just about the most happy and lovable family I’ve ever met. Bennett is so sweet, smiley and attentive, he absolutely stole my heart! Jessica and Jason have always been a couple I looked up to! Even now seeing their loving and encouraging ways towards is so inspiring! Bennet just smiles and blossoms under their sweet and gentle care.  :) Jason is someone I always remember with a smile playing upon his face AND….. looked whole lot like Brock (yes the Pokemon trainer) haha!  I remember one time at a volunteer event, Jessica was in charge of the medical supplies and all of us joked that Jason [Brock] finally got his Nurse J !:D Jessica was my caring group leader back when I was a high school freshman. She encouraged me through all my angsty high school years, and was always there to lend an ear, prayer and hug.:):)I haven’t seen them in years but the love and admiration I held for them flooded back in an instant. I’m so excited to share their family set! Enjoy!:)

Look at this cutie pie!!

Yes hello I think I’m in love!

Look at his adorable teethy grin!! Is he just not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen?

No mommy and daddy please don’t let me touch the ground!



Lisa and Marz | Disneyland Engagement

I’m so excited to share this Disneyland Engagement session!! Fireworks, long exposures,everything magical….I had so many FAVORITE photos.. it was super hard to narrow them down for the blog.

Lisa and Marz are truly an amazing inspiring couple. Lisa was one of the lucky winners of my mini photo-shoot giveaway last year! Being the most sweet and thoughtful person,  she actually accidentally entered the contest with the intention and hope that some of her friends and family might win and enjoy a trip to Disneyland! Her selfless efforts were rewarded and she totally won!:D

Back then I had no idea she was the ever-so-lovely girlfriend of my dear friend Mars! You can imagine what a awesome surprise that was for me!! Mars and I go way back! We met almost a decade ago when I was working at Disneyland! We “graduated” in the same “Zoo Crew” class together. We truly had the most magical and fun jobs in the park!:)

Seeing their fun dynamic– it so clear that every moment is dear, near and sweet to them. Every day is full of love, laughter and smiles all around.

Lisa and Marz, thank you so much for allowing me the privilege of photographing you two.You two warms and inspires my heart.:) It was truly my pleasure! You’re wedding is just around the corner and I’m so excited to see what adventures await you two in the future!! Disneyland date soon please! xoxo

Time Stops for these two:D

Guess who Marz was bestest friends with?:DT..I.. Double GEE GRR!:D
