Fashion Photo-Shoot for LUSH Clothing
Photo-shoot for Lush Clothing turned out exactly the way it was planned.
Young and fresh, but still elegant and classy.
It was my second season with Lush and the whole crew worked so well together.
Designers at Lush did wonderful job on styling each outfit.
Jenny O did great make-up and hair.
More than anybody, Nastassja from Elite Model did such a perfect job
interpreting each outfit and giving a character to it. Thank you so much Nastassja!
And always, many thanks to Jeff, my assistant for hard work.
Jean+Sam Engagement Session at Huntington Beach
Marisa+Andrew Engagement Session
I had a wonderful engagement session with Marisa and Andrew yesterday.
We started photo-shoot from their home and the neighborhood with their
two beautiful dogs, Dexter and Sophie. After these lovely family portraits
we visited Dreamworks Animation campus where Andrew works.
The couple was so relaxed and easy-going that I didn't feel like I was working.
It was more like having a fun field trip on a holiday.
Thank you! Marisa and Andrew.
Cooking Class at My studio
My dear friend Ellen Lee opened up a cooking class at my studio.
Since I renovated the studio with a full kitchen and a bar in March,
my studio became more than a work space. Ellen offers the class once a week,
usually on Tuesdays with different themes. This week's theme was
'Easy-to-prepare appetizers for Holiday parties'.
I always think cooking is a real work of Art because it really is making
something out of nothing.
If you are interested in Ellen's cooking class please call her at 818-419-4107.
She is such a talented chef and a food stylist. www.ellenleefoodstylist.com
Hanbok means Korean traditional dress.
I had a studio photo-shoot for the renowned Hanbok designer, Mehee Kim.
It was my first time to shoot Hanbok as a fashion collection.
I was quite blown away by the beauty of it.
So simple, but so elaborate at the same time.
It is elegantly feminine yet, so sexy without exposing the body-line.
Mehee Kim also has new collection of modernized Hanbok.
She successfully added contemporary edge to Hanbok without losing its traditional identity.

Rochelle + Bradley
When I first met Rochelle and Brad at my studio I could tell right away that they are so much in love. Even though they were both soft spoken and had few words I could sense they are true soul-mates. This is what I love about being a wedding photographer. Being around people in love makes me feel great about life. Rochelle first met Brad in Las Vegas visiting a former teacher of her little brother who passed away from brain cancer. Rochelle thinks it was her seven year old brother in Heaven who got them together. The couple wed in the beautiful Sacred Heart Chapel on Loyola Marymount University campus.

GRACE + JASON
Compassionate, funny and theatrically talented bride, Grace.
Gentle, thoughtful and culinarily talented groom, Jason.
Together they created one of the most festive wedding I have shot
on Sunday night. Wedding planning was done by their dear friend,
Nellie Mun from Pleasant Surprise Events. Everything was put together
so seamlessly and beautifully.
These are some of my personal favorites from wedding portfolio.
Thank you to all the brides and grooms who gave me the opportunity
to be a part of your special day!
Every summer about 8 to 10 families in the neighborhood have a vacation together in Yosemite.
It became a much expected annual event of summer. Magnificent nature, swimming
in the river, biking under the moonlight, BBQ feast on the sand beach and no-driving
no-cell-phone for 5 days. I finally put together the footage from June 2009.
Sorry, I could not find any appropriate photo of myself.

Personal Favorites / Engagement Session
These are some of my personal favorites from engagement session portfolio.
I try best to personalize each shoot to the bride and the groom.
I would like my photos to show who they are in real life.
