Fadi + Fairuz = Baby Adam

In 2008, we photographed the wedding of Fairuz and Fadi at the Carnelian Room, San Francisco. In 2010, baby boy Adam was born and again my heart melts seeing the happiness of proud parents, I remember the happiness they have on their wedding day years ago. Their love has given birth to bouncing baby boy, and I’m glad I’m the photographer. A wedding photo of Fairuz and Fadi also appeared at an airline magazine where our studio was featured. Fairuz was also so kind to help us in our very first Bridal Faire booth where she talked to other fellow brides and shared her wedding experience. Her friendliness was not only much appreciated by us but also by the brides who were shopping for the right vendor. And here are more photos of their family.








Glamorous at 40

>
You wouldn’t believe how old this mom, wife, and nurse who works night shifts for the past decade. When L.A. turned forty, she booked me to photograph this milestone year. (Folks, I have permission from L.A. to put her age in the blog.) L.A says, “I just turned 40 and never felt so great!” There are things that we people always want to do but never get the chance to do it. For LA, she always have wanted a glamor/fashion photoshoot, and she finally had the time to do it. I am honored that I photographed her. When the pictures came out it was great, she loves it. When Phoebe and I were processing the photos, Phoebe just had to ask LA her beauty secret because her skin just looks so fresh. LA says, “I didn’t pay close attention to my skin and face until I turned 35! My bestfriend told me then, we owe it to ourselves to look beautiful and feel empowered! Since then, I made a conscious decision to fight the signs of aging…like I load myself with foods that are high in antioxidants and I drink lots of green tea everyday. I also learned the importance of sunscreen and now I use Revale`skin products for my face.” Here are some of the photos and quick slideshow.

Fanny + Shang = A Funny Engagement Session

Fanny and Shang both studied at UC Berkeley, and it is just right to have their engagement session done in the campus to relive the old school days, where they first met and fell in love… and it all started when Shang borrowed an eraser from Fanny =).
We had a lot of laughs during the photoshoot, we surely had a great time with this fun and easy-going couple.
Here are some of their photos and don’t forget to watch their cute slideshow at the end.
