Jane + Andrew // Director’s Cut

I met with Jane and Andrew over the internet back in November 2013! I remember we had a hard time meeting in person so we had video chat online. After getting to know Jane and Andrew, I knew I wanted to capture their wedding. It was so great to work with these two as they were accommodating.

The Montage Laguna Beach already tops as one of my favorite venue sites for its design, layout, service and accommodation. But wow! Jane and Andrew just stepped it up with making their wedding at the Montage so unique and beautiful.

Their ceremony was overlooking the ocean and was flourished by the ravishing designs by Enchanted Florist and filled with the music of Enchanted Evening. After their first kiss, they had a dove release by White Flite AND a confetti canon!! Did I also mention a plane? To top it off, a plane flew by with a banner congratulating the two.

Upon entering the reception, my jaw was dropped at how beautiful the decor was organized. From the floral designs to the ghost chivari chairs.. this is definitely one of the most elegant weddings I’ve been to. There was even an ice luge at the bar! The Korean Classical Music & Dance Company also put on a few great performances throughout the night! I tip my hat off to all the excellent vendors who I got to work with for this wedding, including the talented Sophia Park for coordinating the day and Paul Kim for being a great MC and DJ.

Anyway, enjoy the edit!

June + Richard // Wedding Highlights

We got this great opportunity to capture this lovely couple in the Beautiful San Diego. They rented a beach house for their ceremony and reception. The backyard overlooked a cliff to the ocean and nearby beaches. The weather was perfect, not too hot, not too cold with just the right amount of sunlight. June and Richard are such a sweet couple and they were so accommodating to me and my team. Anyway, check out their Wedding Highlights!

Lindsay + Charles // Same-Day Edit

What a way to end the weekend! Lindsay + Charles was such a beautiful couple inside and out! I had the chance the meet with this couple a few times before their wedding and we instantly clicked. They also gave me the “go” to pick whatever song I want! (the best words any cinematographer loves to hear). With that creative freedom, I’ve always wanted to use “feel again” by OneRepublic and I thought this was the perfect time to use it. Among the common interests we shared, we also loved the Ritz Carlton. This tops as one of my favorite venue sites, not only for its design, but for its service and accommodation. We even got our meal served before the reception! (best time to eat so we don’t miss anything).

As always, Sophia did a great job organizing the day and making sure everything ran according to plan. In addition, Paul Kim did another great performance as the reception MC.

The biggest challenge to work with was the noise the passing airplane made during the vows… grr! Other than that, extraordinary wedding! Enjoy the SDE.

Stephanie + Tony // SDE

I’m a little sad that this wedding season is coming to an end. So this being my last SDE for 2013, I had to finish with a bang!

I was first referred to Stephanie from Christine/Mike and Lisa/Andy’s weddings. We first met at Stephanie’s work, 85°C! It so funny because after all of our weddings, it is tradition that my team and I finish the day with dessert at 85°C! During our meeting I was treated with one of my favorite desserts there, mango! I was already sold with this client.

Throughout the day, we shared so many laughs, especially during our video session and first look! Although it was our first time meeting their families, we felt immediately welcomed with their generous hospitality. They were so happy and fun to work with! In addition, we got 24carrots catering AND In-N-Out after dinner!!

Oh, in case you may be wondering, the man printed on the face boards was the best man, who unfortunately was unable to attend. So this was their way of having him part of their wedding =) So here’s my last SDE for 2013, enjoy!
