• About

    I aim to create pictures that tell stories...your stories. I love hearing my clients stories and I can't wait to talk with you about what stories we will create together. Please take a few minutes to look through my work and get to know my style.

    I love being around people; and love documenting people's life. Animated and Spontaneous people? I love them. Most of all, I really enjoy creating honest, heartfelt pictures cause the emotional response for my subjects or the viewers; the images that give me the goosebumps while taking them behind the camera. Through this process, I also learn new things about life as well ...... about love, passion, friendship, and what makes people tick and sets them alive. I have done a lot of career throughout my life, from Software Engineer, Record Store Owner, Party Promoter, Raves and Clubs DJ, Massage Therapist, Meditation Teacher (right?) but I have never been happier than to be a Photographer. I am sure a lot of Photographer would agree with me. :)

Wedding at Casa Bella in Sunol, CA.

Photographing a Wedding at Casa Bella in Sunol, CA, is really fun.   A beautiful location for an intimate Wedding with great places to take beautiful Wedding portraits.  Tessa and Dynaton finally tied the knot at the cute Casa Bella Event Center witnessed by their loving friends and families. Their family members flew from all over the world to celebrate them tying the knot. The whole day was very memorable, full of laughter, big smiles and many happy tears.

We begun the Wedding Day coverage at the house for their getting ready and then we drove to Sunol to have the first look.  At their first look Tessa became very emotional where she shed a few tears, but I am pretty sure those were happy tears. The whole bridal party was on site to watch this beautiful moments.  We then proceed to take a quick family photos and then intimate outdoor ceremony started. The ceremony was cute and officiated by one of their high school friends. This seems to be very fitting since they met each other and started dating and fell in love while they were in high school.  Some people just knew exactly that they would be forever together as in the case with Tessa and Dynaton. There were laughters and smiles exchaged at the beautiful ceremony.

The ceremony was followed by the super fun and action packed reception at the same location.  You can really tell when bride and groom are from a big and close knit family.  The reception party was full of emotions, fun and laughters all night. A lot of hugs were exchanged through out the night, and the dance floor was full all night with the young ones all the way the older generations.  Well, please browse these images below to imagine the fun they had with their friends and family at their beautiful wedding.

Event at San Jose Tech Museum

I love photographing Event at San Jose Tech Museum which is located right in the downtown area of San Jose.  This time I was asked to photograph a charity Event for Music for Minors which is a great Non Profit that provides afternoon music programs for high school, which I think it is an important program for children and youths.  

This fun event was attended by San Jose Mayor who gave the opening speech for the event.  We started the event with the Step and Repeat photo session of the donors and the parents of the participating kids.  After which, the kids were divided in groups and participated in the fun games to warm them up before it was time to performe on the stage. Then we moved on to the main cinema to watch the final perfomance choreograph by a few musicians and composers from UK.  The last performance was amazing and with visual projection on the IMAX theater’s humongous screen.  Below are my favorite images from the event.

Sanborn Park Saratoga Engagement Session

This couple was excited to have their Sanborn Park Saratoga Engagement Session.  It was a beautiful cool crisp late afternoon at the Sanborn Park and you can’t ask for a better weather.   I adore that winter smell of the grass and redwood.  I really love Sanborn Park especially the Redwood Auditorium which is one of the favorite outdoor Wedding location in the South Bay Area.  I have photographed many Weddings there.  in addition I actually did officiated 2 of my best friends’s Wedding there.  Yes, I did.  🙂  Basically I have a long fun and great memories history with Sanborn Park.

Posted below are a few favorites of the session that later were incorporated into their Wedding Guests Sign In book.   You can feel how much love they hold for each other and that makes us Wedding Photographers so happy to see our clients act in the most natural way.  The best way to capture and preserve those beautiful and heartfelt moments.  We need those heartfelt and honest moments to tell your stories.

Mountain View Engagement Session

This fun couple had a fun idea of casual Mountain View Engagement Session in the neighborhood near they live.  So we started in downtown Sunnyvale at the coffee shop they frequent, as usual every coffee shop was crowded with students and working engineers doing their daily tasks, but we managed to shoot a couple of nice shots of them jokingly interacting with each other just like they always do.    After that we went to Mountain View’s downtown Castro street to their local favorite restaurant.  As you can see in the images below, they were so natural in front of the camera and it was so easy to capture those candid moments during this Engagement shoot. After that, we went to MIddlefield in Palo Alto to the art installation right off Middlefield Road. Apparently they saw the same installation in Canada, where Wes proposed to Chrystal. I really like this natural art installation, it was brilliantly contructed by bendable wood branches. I am sure it is very complex to build. So there you go, folks. If you are in the market for a Wedding Photographer in the SF Bay Area or the South Bay, who caters Palo Alto, Mountain View, Redwood City, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Cupertino and San Jose; please contact me. I would love to speak with you and chat about your Wedding Photography plan. It is an exciting time for you, and your family indeed and I would be honor to be a part of it.

Intimate Wedding – Los Gatos

Kirsten and Paul decided to tie their knot at their Intimate Wedding in Los Gatos.   The only attendance at the Wedding is the  lovely couple, the officiant and myself.  The ceremony taken place at the Oak Meadow Park next to the Lake Vasona State Park in Los Gatos early in a cold morning of January.   The ground was still wet from the rain that early morning.  When I arrived at the park, I found the couple standing around, feeling relaxed and laughing together.  What a relief to have a small Wedding ceremony.  Then at 8AM we started the ceremony.  It was a very simple but heartfelt ceremony.  They both have their own written vow that they prepared, which they read to each other with big smiles and glassy eyes.  I was definitely feeling thankful and lucky that I was included in their ceremony.   The beautiful ceremony lasted about 30 minutes and then we stayed around at Oak Meadow to shoot a few portraits.  Then we went to another local park in Los Gatos to do more portraits.   Luckily, the rain stopped so we can took a walk around the green lush park. Don’t you love the smell of the rain in the winter time?  Well, Northern California winter time.  🙂 

Posted below are a few favorite images from the 2 hour shoots with Kirsten and Paul.  Congrats Kirsten and Paul, and thank you for including me in your beautiful Intimate Wedding Ceremony.
