The most emotional wedding-----Wendy & Roum

The perfect moment shot from Wendy and Roum's wedding. I got a glimpse of Wendy's sexy legs.I like this one because of the two men with flash going off in the back. At a wedding with so many people taking photos (even the bride couldn't help it but to bust out her camera for a shot), I was able to try a different perspective. This is why everyone kept taking photos. A heartfelt mother-and-son dance. There are more emotional (crying) photos, not sure if I should post them though, hehhehe.

Side note: Flower-girl-wagon, custom design / hand made by the mother of the bride.

Heather and Barry

It is a Chinese tradition for the groom to go through challenges before seeing the bride for the first time on their wedding day. Challenges include level of games that will prove to everyone how much the groom loves the bride and her family.

At Heather and Barry's wedding, Barry and his groomsmen had to mimic what the music video was doing and sing in front of everyone.
After a few challenges, the groomsmen presented a check for the bridesmaids and sisters to buy (bribe) their way through. The check doesn't look too real though. The groomsmen are thinking, "Hopefully, this hand-made-check will bribe us through because it is the thought that counts." While downstairs is negotiating the open door fee, upstairs on the second floor is like a different world. There are two people concentrating on their movie and laptop. What a contrast.

Best wedding invitation of the year

Today I received a wedding invitation from Vivian and Leighton. The set of invite is just TOO COOL NOT TO SHOW.The invite is absolutely impressive. I love the layout and their idea of using their "Wii" logo and tie it to a bible verse to "We (Wii) love because God first loved us" John 4:19
(The meaning behind the Wii logo is a tilted letter L and letter V put together into a W, and then 2 little people that shape like the "ii") A+ on the consistency.
Save the date with the cute little graphics (of their cat, vespa, wedding cake, and heart) along with a personal message on the side:
Even the map graphic is way cool. I 'm so amazed by the detail to the width of the street vs highway, highway exit and location icons. I have never seen such a well put-together map design.
I am rating this invite the Best Wedding Invitation of the year!!

This wedding invitation was designed by the groom, Leighton Leigh .

Save the date - Xiaoxing & Mark

Here's another example of "making something out of the engagement shoot". You just never know what your engagement photos are good for other than displaying them on your reception table. They can turn out to be your save-the-date date card /e-card /postcard, or invitation.

Kwan and Ray

Congrats to Kwan and Ray. I had alot of fun photographing these 2. The hot weather and sweat didn't stop their overflowing sweetness.They were able to give me playful when I wanted it.When I wanted passionate, even in this very old dirty building, they still gave me passionate.Think posey posey model shot.To get this shot, I have to give it to kwan, the bride. She had to climb over the fences in her heavy wedding gown to get inside this hallway, A+ for the effort.And for this water fountain shot, I m quite proud of it. At first I thought it was impossible to get a good shot because it was very busy crowded Sunday afternoon and the park was full of people taking photos around and inside the fountain. So I moved Kwan and Ray forward, away from the fountain, used them to block every tourists behind them. Now it looks like it was just the two of them, when the three of us know that there were actually tons of people surrounding us.
