A little early start of the season. And we have Irene and Charles, who are perfect match to each other! The weather is not the warmest in March, but their joy and love warms my heart. A BEAUTIFUL mother and daughter moment! Guys are ready for the challenge! Demonstrating their great skills of instant noodles sculpture, using only their mouth. THOUGHTFUL! Proud parents … oh, they’re the parents of the flower girl, not the couples. =P Yeah, pleasure moments … everyone is trying to capture it. And while one corner we have the scared and romantic moments from Irene and Charles, here we have some fun from the little ones. That what makes wedding so special to me! =) Fun wedding party, thanks for the guys who gave me the idea that they dressed like waiters. =PContinue Reading
Hola from Mexico! Super excited to capture the FANTASTIC moments of Ariel and Kelvin!!!!! Beware, this is a LONG post, because of course, I can’t stop shooting. 😀 Hello handsome groom and the “Nick(s)”. Yes, both groomsmen are Nick, so it’s plural. 😛 Now over to Mrs Chan … This moment is always emotional. Given Kelvin’s personality, his message in the card must be sensational! But let’s hold the tears for later. 🙂 Mom and best friend need to allow some personal space when Ariel reads the card. I love their first reaction when that’s over. Pretty sure it’s not about them hearing the content of the card, but where they are hiding when Ariel is reading it. 😛 One of my favorite moments! Everyone is so happy! 😀 Although we’re in Mexico, we are NOT going to forget the Chinese tradition … door games! Occasion like this, we certainly don’t lack ‘war correspondents’. 😀 The rule of the game is to lick the cream off the plate, I guess this is an alternate solution? But seriously, I don’t know how Kelvin can keep a calm and smiley expression in the middle of a push-up! Speaking of strength!! Let’s have a little photo fun before the ceremony! I truly LOVE moment like this! Done, it’s official! Here comes Mr and Mrs Chan, YAY!!!! 😀Glasses clinking time, don’t worry, the boy is not holding anything alcoholic. 😀 And little girl, you’ll get your turn when you turn 18. 😀 Yeah, I don’t usually show group pictures, but these ones make me laugh. 😀 One thing GREAT about destination wedding, the party size is small, and everything can be done is one place. So you have plenty of opportunities to take pictures. And that’s music to my ears!! DEFINITELY ONE OF MY FAVS! Fantastic light! When I take this picture facing the ocean, I really wanted to shout … ‘WILSON!!!!’ 🏐 Reception time! The smaller the party is, the MORE intimate they are. I’m truly honored to be part of it, and witness countless sweet moments throughout the night! So many things are happening in this picture! I LOVE IT! Winner of the bouquet toss! And we’re not going to miss anyone! 🙂 Moments overload!!!
Ariel and Kelvin
What was the most memorable moment of your day?
Ariel: It was between cocktail hour and dinner. Our family and guests were at the cocktail reception, and we just finished taking photos with Tony and had about an hour before we had to show up to dinner. Rather than rushing to the next place, Kelvin and I took twenty minutes to ourselves and sat at the veranda sofas overlooking the pool, holding hands and taking a moment to refresh with champagne while talking quietly about how the day went and how we’re feeling. It was probably the only unplanned moment of the day, but the most memorable for me because it was us, being together, and taking a moment to connect with each other.
Kelvin: Honestly the whole day was memorable and special. Running along the beach in 30 degree sunshine with my suit jacket and bowtie was surprisingly fun!
Any advice for future bride/grooms?
Ariel: Do plan and organize and set up an itinerary for the day – this helps to take advantage of the easy wins and reduces stress, but don’t agonize over the details and all the little things that can go wrong (particularly the night before!) When the day arrives, go with the flow and enjoy your wedding day for what it is.
Kelvin: Enjoy the wedding festivities and celebrations, don’t worry about the small stuff.
Funniest memory from your wedding day?
Ariel: When three of our friends decided that dancing with chairs and flowers as props was a great idea and proceeded to entertain us for twenty minutes with their body wave and water-bottle chugging dance moves.
Kelvin: The wedding party goes to eat at the Japanese restaurant after the wedding
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
Ariel: No 🙂
Kelvin: I’m very happy with my wedding day. I wouldn’t change a thing.Continue Reading
Winter came early this year, but Victoria and Kris’ big day certainly warms it up!! Not only the day is fun, but it’s REALLY action packed. I LOVE IT!!!! Usually the bride’s side have more actions. But man … both sides are full of stories! Traditions are fascinating!! Fun time for me. I must admit, this is one of my favorite portrait sessions! Amazing strength from the girls!!! So much fun with them!! SWEEEEEET!! Between all the actions, the little ones are also their own fun of blowing the candles =D What, too much action? Or music is too loud? No worries, this is the solution for the loud music. =D LOL, I LOVE this baby’s face. I guess the bottle is too cold? =PContinue Reading

I must admit, lately I’ve been having too much fun with Fall color and getting my son’s costume ready. So I was a little being on my blogging. =P But getting back to the pictures is like reliving those exciting moments all over again. In this case, Teresa and Ben’s wedding. They’re fun and they’re extremely nice couple. I LOVE them!
We don’t know need a fancy room to make good pictures. A cozy one will do just fine.
Mom’s expression is priceless!
Now comes the fun
Priceless moment!Continue Reading
