Grace + Victor // Same-Day Edit

Another great wedding day yesterday. Grace and Victor was such an energetic couple full of laughter and personality. They were silly and goofy with each other, yet romantic too. After a few shots, you can see their fun personalities begin to unravel as the shots progressed. We started the day filming at the talented Kelly Yi make up studio in Los Angeles, then headed over to the Westin Pasadena and City Hall to capture their first look and couple session. We finished off the ceremony and reception at the La Canada Flintridge Country Club. It has been a while when we’ve seen such an energetic wedding party. All of the guests were so engaged and talented on the dance floor. The DJ was so good, I was holding myself back from dancing too! We also got to work with the talented Sarina Love Photography making this day a breeze! Anyway, check out their SDE =)

Dung + Dennis // Highlights

I still remember this day like it was yesterday! We started the day at the Omni hotel in Carlsbad where we got to capture this gorgeous couple getting ready and during their first look. I tried to get a drone shot of the venue but there was massive interference and I didn’t think it was safe to fly; however, I did get some great night shots of their reception that will be included in their Director’s Cut! So stay tuned for that! After the Omni, we headed straight to the Sand Diego Botanic Garden, lots of greenery and wild plants to check out. This little hidden gem had lots of great places to shoot. They had an outdoor ceremony and reception and it was beautiful. As you can see from the vendor list below, they hired only the best! A very well coordinated event filled with lots of love, laughter and even lion dances! Dung (pronounced “Yoom”) and Dennis is such a lovely couple and it was great capturing them with their dog too. Anyway, for now, check out their Highlights edit!

Yurianna + Justin // Director’s Cut

July is just around the corner and I’ve been working on this edit for some time! I was able to get a full translation of the Korean ceremony, pulled out specific sections and added subtitles. A small part of me was thinking of dubbing the english translation but I love the sound of the Korean language. Plus something about dubbing a voiceover doesn’t seem too appealing. Anyway, after putting this edit together, I remembered all the love that surrounded that day. Such an amazing wedding and couple.

Cindy + Mike // Same-Day Edit

The heat wave was relentless yesterday but it didn’t stop this beautiful couple on their wedding day. I’ve known Cindy before I entered the world of wedding cinematography, and we’ve worked at the same financial company. Before she met Mike, I’ve always joked with her that I wanted to come to her wedding, and today, I am extremely privileged to capture her wedding day! Despite the sweltering heat, they were such a fun couple to work with and was willing to do whatever the shot takes. The entire wedding was captured at the luxurious Pasadena Langham. Almost too many places to choose from, I wish we had more time! Big shout out to Michelle and her team at Aquafuzion for making the day a breeze! Everything was on time by the second!!
Lastly, always a pleasure working with Erich Chen and his team!

Anyway, check out the first SDE for 2016!
