Ritz Carlton Wedding |Half Moon Bay | Kylie + Joe


It’s always such a treat teaming up with my talented wife Nancy Liu Chin!  I’m loving all the beautiful florals and personalized decor that she created for our couple Kylie + Joe’s wedding at the Ritz Carlton, Half Moon Bay.  I adore the antique typewriter escort cards and the guests were charmed with the skeleton key and individual messages elegantly displayed under glass domes.  This made for a memorable tables cape!

Valentine’s Day Inspiration | Viceroy Palm Springs


My Valentine, Nancy Liu Chin, designed some modern day romance for this beautiful Valentine’s Day inspired photo shoot.  The iconic Viceroy Palm Springs made for the perfect backdrop with it’s charming bungalows and perfectly lit white rooms.  Add in a shopping spree at the local Target store for some props and there you have it.  I love all the little romantic vignettes that Nancy created and so will you.  It will surely spice up your upcoming Valentine’s Day celebration!

Four Seasons Wedding | San Francisco | Lynn + Edmund


 Exactly one year ago, Lynn and Edmund tied the knot at the Four Seasons in San Francisco.  Jubilee Lau Events designed a beautiful wedding for this awesome couple combining  their Vietnamese and Chinese heritages.  The day started with a traditional Vietnamese ceremony honoring the bride’s family followed by a traditional Chinese tea ceremony honoring the grooms family.  As all of the guests arrived in the late afternoon, Lynn & Edmund exchanged vows at the Four Seasons in a western style ceremony.  Happy 1st anniversary to Lynn & Edmund!

Art For Art with Anna Wu


I was contacted by fellow photographer, neighbor and friend Anna Wu to participate in her Art for Art project.  It’s a personal project that Anna does monthly with other photographers.  It’s an exchange between artist to photograph each other.  I can see how educational and interesting it would be to see how other photographers work.  So of course I was thrilled to participate.  Here are the photos of Anna that I shot here at my studio.  It’s been awhile since I’ve used my studio setup so this gave me a chance to dust off the studio strobes, switch gears and do something different.

I love the photos that Anna captured of me.  I know everyone says they don’t like photos of themselves but I REALLY don’t like photos of myself  because when I smile, my face usually looks all scrunchy.  Anna had her work cut out for her and she did a fabulous job making me look relaxed and normal.  My job photographing her was definitely easier then her photographing me.  Haha!
