just got the news that i got accepted into the ARTISTIC GUILD OF THE WEDDING PHOTOJOURNALIST ASSOCIATION. sure, i can play the coy and modest asian girl that i was brought up to be, but i’m just too happy to do that. YAY~!!! (doing my happy dance) i feel very honored to be apart of this elite group of photographers that focuses on fine art wedding photojournalism. ok, now i must call everyone i know to brag, i mean… share, this wonderful news!

when gene loves sharon

Tuesday, June 24th, 2008

one of my closest friend is finally getting married!!!!!! sorry to the rest of my brides and grooms, but sharon + gene has to be my favoritest couple in the whole entire world. i fell in love with this funny guy when sharon first introduced him to us girls a few years back, and ever since then, i have been rooting for him! i mean, it’s more than apparent how much gene loves his lady from the way he looks at her and hold her. i just can’t help, but feel the love whenever i’m around these two.

every time i see this image, i want to belt out “when a man loves a woman…” damn you gene for bringing the cheese (michael bolton) out of me!

the more i look at this image, the more i like it!

i love you guys sooooooooooooooooo much!!!

here are some outtakes from the shoot dave did of me for our new website. i was stressing for weeks and even attempted to go on another crazy diet, but gave up after 3 days because of my addiction to shin ramyun. in the end, i was able to lose that extra 5 lbs with the help and support of my best friend, adobe photoshop.

let’s start with something nice: sexy yvonne (again, special thanks to the good people at adobe photoshop)

mysterious yvonne

drunk yvonne and hideously deformed yvonne

apparently, i am incapable of closing my mouth when getting my photos taken …

coming soon…

i knew immediately this was going to be a great shoot when i asked kelsey + lane to lay on the beach, and next thing i knew, they were in the sand getting down and dirty.

Can’t wait for your August wedding!
