Ivar and Cindy – San Francisco City Hall – Captured on Film

It took me two years to convince my brother http://www.iqvideography.com to get a 8mm film (Super8) camera and probably two months to convince him to actually use it.
Ivar and Cindy got married in SF City Hall. They flew all the way from Hong Kong just to get married in San Francisco. I still find hard to believe it.
Thank you guys for having us witness your celebration.

On a side note, I promise soon tons of new photos from weddings we shot in the last two-three months. Its been a little overwhelming in here but we will catch up before we start a season with a much anticipated Bahamas destination wedding!

What keeps me inspired…

What keeps me inspired is not just the results of my work in a way I see it, but YOUR feedbacks. Every time someone mentions my work and how they feel about it, it just makes my day. But when I get this (thank you Qing Qing), I want to fly!
Qing Qing wrote a poem for me.

Pictures of you
is like a shade of heather grey
cold and warm at the same time
bumping in the back of my mind and lighting the blurry sea of blue

Pictures of you
glittery gold fades and your grin that takes me flow
lady bird sings and heavy raindrops fall
after the summer storm

Pictures of you
dream is a vision and days have been left hollow and pale
million minutes is a passing fleet
words play in the distance and your flair shines through…

We will see you sometime soon,
Qing Qing & Daniel

Nick+Lauren | Wine County| V. Sattui Winery

And yet another amazing wedding I had the great opportunity to photograph. Lauren and Nick chose V. Sattui Winery in charming St. Helena, as the location for their wedding. Sattui had an incredibly helpful staff and great food (yes, I usually get fed!). A wonderful wedding party made my work easy. And, of course, Lauren was such a beautiful bride. I sincerely hope the photos reflect the day.

Stephanie+Ray | Pasadera Country Club

Stephanie and Ray had a fabulous wedding at Pasadera Country Club in Monterey. This terrific couple would have looked great anywhere, but Pasadera was an especially inviting spot for a lovely wedding and great backgrounds for photos. Thanks so much for letting me be a part of your special day.
