CA Wedding: Christina + Esmond

Hi world… meet the fabulous Kims! (hashtag: #kimkimwedding) A little story: Our first thought when they mentioned that they both have the same last name was: “Wow that’ll make it EASY… no paperwork changes needed afterwards!”. I guess this just reflects on how we both are: we love the simple things in life. And I think this is why we’re so in love with Christina and Esmond’s beautiful wedding at The Turnip Rose, Costa Mesa, CA. It was simple, yet fabulous. Large, yet still intimate. Glamorous, but still understated. Scroll through and see for yourselves!

Engaged: Puppy love

When I was younger (maybe a little too young actually–middle school! lol) I use to looooove reading romance books. Each love story to me was unique and thrilling and a wondrous read. So, I’m thinking it must be destiny that now I get to see real and truly beautiful relationships through our amazing clients. Speaking of great loves stories, we’re sharing Lucy and Yee’s fun engagement today full of pretty florals, cute fluffy things, and a stunning ring! The puppy and the gorgeous ring came as a package deal for the proposal, how sweet is Yee?!

We are quite happy to have met this lovely couple. Ty was particularly happy when Yee was nice enough to take him night fishing after their session! lol. We had a fabulous time getting to know them both and we hope they love these photos as much as we do!

Big thanks to the amazing talents of Tiffany Xiong for Lucy’s flawless make-up. It was a pleasure to finally meet you my dear!

Sister! sister!

A quick post from the mini-session with my sisters we did earlier this year. My older sister turned 30-something today! I’ve been storing things away (and forgetting where I put them =/ ) for the past few months in anticipation of sending my sister a care package for her birthday…and it was so worth it because she loved it! My sister May has always been a great gift-giver. If there was a secret santa exchange, she would be the one you secretly hope would get your name! And she would take that extra effort to wrap it up so beautifully you wouldn’t even want to open it. Every detail on the outside would be as lovely as what was inside. That is how I remember birthdays and Christmases growing up with her and as a spoiled little kid, I loved her for it! ahah.

I’ve picked up many things from my older sister throughout the years but one of the things I’ve learned from her is the joy of giving to others. I’m so happy I was able to make her smile on her special day! Happy Birthday my dear!

Afternoon at the Garden

Here’s a quick sneak peek of Susan and Kevin’s beautiful garden wedding. When we arrived there, the cutest little boy walked past us and gave us the friendliest “HI!” We had met their son, Dylan, through video chat a year ago and he’s grown so much we didn’t even recognize him at first. Susan and Kevin seriously have one cute as a button little guy! We really enjoyed sharing this special day with this awesome little family.

Some of our favorite moments of the wedding day was when their little Dylan was in the frame. <3

Berry Hill Wedding

We always love visiting the Midwest, especially so when we’re covering weddings. Just wanted to say goodbye to Minnesota with a proper sneak peek of Rachel and Vichai’s Berry Hill Farm wedding in Anoka,MN. Can’t wait to share the rest! By the way, if you haven’t seen their super cute Engagement session yet, make sure you take a look!

Made it into Portland Bride and Groom!

Hey everyone! We had to pinch ourselves at first but some dreams do come true–one of our couples was featured in Portland Bride and Groom’s Summer/Fall 2014 issue!!! Hooray! I’ve been looking at bridal magazines since the 6th grade so this has got to be the coolest news for me. Anyways, we could hardly keep it to ourselves over the last few months! The big reason being… the featured bride is our very own niece Evelyn! What a joy it is to share this happy occasion with them all over again. Love you both and yay, we can scream and shout and let it all out now! lol

I also wanted to take this time to add that we were in CA for a wedding last month and got to spend some much needed quality time with Ty’s 5 year old nephew, Logan. Logan is one of those kids that make you actually want to have your own kids so I was happy to be on babysitting duty with him. He is also one of those kids that asks a ton of questions. lol. A question he asked was, “Auntie, do you have a best friend at work?” That one made me smile deeply. I have only one co-worker and yes, I am truly lucky to call that amazing man my best friend. Congrats to us!!

See the rest of their photos from Evelyn & Jerry’s wedding!

Fresno Wedding: Nancy + Chuezheng

We’re so happy to share Nancy and Chuezheng’s Wedgewood Fresno Wedding with you all. A little backstory: We wouldn’t be able to share with you this wedding today had we not met Nancy at her sister Rita’s wedding a few years back. It’s always such a blessing for us to see familiar faces at weddings, especially so when they’re all in the bridal party.

Nancy and Chuezheng, Congratulations again! And hope you love these photos as much as we do!
