THY + PAUL // ENGAGED // PALOS VERDES

Thy + Paul engagement seriously broke adventure and fanciness. we drove all around palos verdes, trekked down to the tide pools, and then dared ourselves how long we can hangout on rocks before the sea gets us all wet. congratulations to you guys again! many blessings on your wedding day and marriage!

REGINA HUSMAN // LOS ANGELES // PORTRAIT

here is Regina Husman, a dear friend of mine that i have known for sometime now. with every life we all have struggles and the obstacles that come into it. getting to know her story about how God has blessed her life and how He reached out to guide her to where she is now. Regina has a huge heart for God and His children in this world. she is currently studying to be a neurologist to do big things in this world. I’m super blessed to know such an inspiring young girl and i’m stoke to see her grow spiritually and as a person.

big thanks to Regina for coming out to shoot with me so i can test out a new film set from Visual Supply Co. this is the vscofilm03 pack and so far i like the professional series from it. mostly used was a variety of ++ or +++ from Fujifilm FP-100c and FP-3000B series. i really like it for personal use but maybe not just weddings yet. the black and white options could possibly be worked in though.

well here are some shots from a small session with regina in her own home.

 

 

MAY + TED KAO // WEDDING // LOS ANGELES

perfect day for an amazing couple. May and Ted are both friends of mine for some time now and i’m so honored that they asked me to document their special day. watching these two grow in their relationship for the past few years has been amazing. my wife and i are blessed to have them as friends and as brothers and sisters through Christ.  what an inspiring and amazing couple!

we started off at the Albertson Wedding Chapel in LA, then explored LA and broke Ted’s fear of heights;)  After all the fun and chasing the light, the couple capped off the evening with delicious food at Mastros Steak House while being serenaded by the maid of honor and best man.

 

congratulations again you guys! wishing you the best and a happy marriage!

Janet - Love those photo, especially the balck&white. Thank you
