An Intimate wedding at Crystal Cove park over looking Laguna Beach. These two got serious love for each other. It was the most amazing ceremony I have ever been to. I especially love the custom made vest for their ring bearer Tivo. Here are some of my favorite Images from the day. Congratulations Jessica and Jason again! Best wishes to you on your amazing new life together!

THE MOO’S IN TAIWAN // PERSONAL

Back in the beginning of May, Sam and I went to Taiwan to visit all her relatives that could not make it to our wedding last year. I tried to learn some basic chinese to speak to her grandma and aunts. I think i did pretty good…. I hope.. I want to share with you today images from the Taiwan part of our trip. We got to explore a little bit in Taipei, Tai Chung, and then Hsinchu. The weather really limited us to mainly eating all week, but I’m not really complaining about that either. The food was amazing and right now i really miss it. My inlaws stuffed me silly with food. Everyday when i woke up, they either had breakfast on the table or we would just go somewhere to get something new i haven’t tried. I felt like a real big fatty during this vacation, but honestly it was all worth it. I definitely want to go back again and explore the rest of Taiwan.

Various images are from walking around Taipei and Tai Chung. The ancient buildings and beautiful greenery was from Hsinchu. This retreat ressort was called, The One.  Enjoy

THE MOO’S IN JOSHUA TREE // PERSONAL

up until now i have never been camping in my life. i feel like my childhood was so deprived!  i had so much fun camping, that i wanted to make it a yearly tradition. i didn’t get to see the famous huge rocks from J-Tree this year, but i’m so looking forward to it on my next visit. here are some shots from that weekend.

THE MOOS IN SAN FRANCISCO // PERSONAL

moo + san francisco = best trip ever!

thanks to my sister-in-law Elizabeth, we had one of the best weekend vacations this year. it was our first time traveling to San Francisco together. Elizabeth gifted us a dinner at Gary Danko where our mouths were in heaven for at least 4 hours! i have to admit, i did not feel guilty being a food snob at all that day. we had to book reservations 2 months in advance.. 2 MONTHS!!!! that’s insane! we had the most amazing time exploring together and just spoiled ourselves with delicious food. one of the best parts of the trip was the mechanical museum we stumbled upon walking around pier 41. we had so much fun just admiring these classic machines. it will now be our tradition to go there every time we are in SF. on our final day there, we road bikes over the golden gate bridge and took the ferry back. It was quite exhausting but the day was perfect for it. special thanks to Christine Chang for being a great tour guide, host, and most importantly – friend! we would’ve been lost without you!

all images shot with d700 and iphone camera.

enjoy!
