Jennifer + Chen (John) // Director’s Cut

Wow, when you get a client inquiry for a wedding at the famous 5 acre, $12-million Houdini Estate in the Hollywood Hills, you book it! This place still has its caves, hidden tunnels, terraces gardens and a deep water tank where Houdini reportedly practiced his famous underwater escapes. Chen and Jennifer couldn’t have picked a more magical place. They even hired a magician to perform some acts during the reception and cocktail hour! This property is huge with lots of places for photo opportunities, this whole place was our playground to capture all of the amazing shots you’ll see in this edit. With a great team of vendors and lovable clients, this day couldn’t have gone any better. Check out their edit below!

Vivi + Jon // Director’s Cut

So this is our first time shooting at the legendary Richard Nixon Library! Although this was a 14 hour day, it didn’t feel like one as there were so many events and excitement to capture. We started the day getting ready at their place then heading over to each of their parent’s houses for the respective tea ceremonies. A catholic wedding ceremony followed right after at the St. Boniface Church. Lastly, we ended the day at the Richard Nixon Library. Although we were not permitted to capture drone shots here, we were still able to capture alternatively beautiful shots of the venue. There were great places to shoot both indoors and outdoors and even a basement with a presidential conference style board room. Christina coordinated another successful day and being able to work with Erich Chen Photography made it even sweeter. All of the vendors on board made the day such a success and crafting this edit was definitely a pleasure that brought back all the wonderful memories of that day. Anyway check it out!

Audrey + Daniel // Same-Day Edit

and 5…4…3…2…1!
As this near ends, I’m so excited to share this same-day edit we captured yesterday! What a great way to end the year with this beautiful wedding. The day could not have gone so smoothly if it were not for the coordinators, photographers and vendors!

I’ve known Audrey about a decade ago when we were attending UCR for our undergrad. Although we haven’t seen each other during the gaps of this period, it was easy to reconnect and see the connection that makes Daniel and Audrey so special. Even their dogs, Pepper and Riley made it to the wedding!

Check out their SDE and their reactions. Happy New Year, be safe and cheers to a New Year!

Stacy + Boris // Director’s Cut

I’m so happy to share this latest Director’s Cut featuring Stacy + Boris! This venue site is one of coolest locations because it has a helipad at the top where they allow couples like Stacy + Boris to use as their ceremony site! To add more epic-ness, it oversees the Marina Beach and all of its beautiful surroundings.

Stacy actually attended the same High School as I did since we were both raised in Rowland Heights. It was great to catch up and see some familiar faces at her wedding. I really love the custom written vows they read to each other. My favorite part? their surprise dance they had after their first dance! Anyway, check out their edit below!

Judy + Brent // Highlights

Happy holidays and TGIF! As stressful as Christmas shopping is, I wanted to post this lovely edit of Judy and Brent to bring all the fuzzy feelings back and a smile on your face. This wedding was captured at the beautiful Noguchi gardens in Costa Mesa, truly another hidden gem in this cityscape. It was an extremely smooth day with the meticulous coordination of Christina Tran. Some interesting things about this wedding, 1. Brent has an identical twin brother (as you can see in the edit), 2. His last name is Tambourine (which is why you see everyone shaking a Tambourine), and 3. we had the best vendors meals ever here (Mastro’s Steaks!). Anyway, Best food ever, Unique locations, Great coordinators, Friendly Photographers, Solid team, Lovely couple, what more else could I ask for? Check out the edit below:

Reception: Mastros, Costa Mesa CA
