It started with a few messages and some e-mails online. Teresa and Jing realized they had so much in common and just had to meet. After hitting it off on their first date, it would be months before they could meet again — Teresa left for vacation for several weeks and right as she returned, it was Jing’s turn to travel. But even with their busy travel schedules, they often thought of one another.
The beginning of their courtship showed how much they loved to see and travel the world. Now that they will be sharing their lives together, they discover new places by each others side.
Nearly a year ago, Christina and I had the absolute pleasure of watching (and photographing) two of our dearest friends, Herman and Ena, become engaged. Although the weather that day turned out to be a cold, foggy, and windy afternoon near the beach in Half Moon Bay, luckily for their engagement session, it was quite the opposite! While we all were attending an unforgettable destination wedding in Tulum, Mexico, Christina and I took the opportunity to shoot Herman and Ena’s engagement session at an one-of-a-kind location: a private, secluded beach house! Herman had planned out the accommodations for this trip and I’ll be hard pressed to stay at a nicer place than this.
Thanks Herman & Ena for planning such an unforgettable trip. We’re so glad to have had a chance to shoot at the house and we can’t wait for your wedding!
With two drinks in hand, Robert sat outside at a small table outside Starbucks and waited. Peeking at his watch a few times in anticipation. Ashley didn’t realize how far down the street she was from that coffee shop that they agreed to meet at. But as she approached him from the distance, she knew it was him. He was wearing exactly what he described he would be wearing, and was even thoughtful enough to have her favorite drink waiting for her when she arrived. The date that started out with a soy latte, and 16 hours later ended with dinner. Talk about hitting it off!
It wasn’t long after that Ashley and Robert’s friends and family noticed their glow. That something had changed in them after that first date. They then couldn’t resist talking about one another and that’s when everyone knew that they had found their match.
Ashley and Robert celebrated their nuptials at the gorgeous Mountain Winery, overlooking the beautiful, rolling hills of Saratoga. This was another wedding where we had the pleasure of working with some familiar and awesome vendors, including Jira at Wow Pretty and Cary from Petals by Cary.

Robert and Ashley, we can’t thank you enough for having us be a part of your wedding. You guys are so awesome!
