2010 San Jose Tech Museum Tech Challenge - San Jose Event Photographer

This year I volunteered to be a event photographer for the annual Tech Challenge ( hosted at the San Jose Tech Museum.  It was great to see so many students from a diverse grade range participate.  The goal of the challenge was to have groups of students come up with a invention that will allow them to stick two D batteries on a hanging satellite about 15 feet away.  The students are not allowed to move out of a boxed boundary and have a time limit to complete the task.  It was great being able to capture the students and their amazing inventions.


Here is a little video highlight clip I compiled together.  I thought I'd give it a little techno theme to match the futuristic theme.

Anita and William Wedding - San Francisco Wedding Photographer

Congratulations to Anita and William!  Their wedding day was so fun and the bride and groom were so beautiful.  The bride featured a traditional Chinese dress to start the day.  The early events included the groom attempting to persuade the bridesmaid to let him in the house.  Many tactics including red evenlopes, challenging games, and straight out begging were involved.  After the craziness, the groom was allowed in the house and he was allowed to kiss the bride (as shown below).

The banquet was held at Millbrae's Seafood Harbor Restuarant.  The banquet featured a traditional Chinese banquet including eight very fufilling dishes with seafood in almost all the dishes!  I love Chinese weddings as you are guaranteed to leave full.  The banquet was very festive as expected.  I love the shots where people are bringing their glasses together to cheer the newly weds.  Overall, it was a very fun wedding with lots of great memories.  I hope the couple can forever cherish their special day with these photos.

Anita and William - San Francisco Engagement Photographer

What a beautiful couple. I've never had so much fun taking engagement photos. We actually took two engagement sessions at two different locations. 

We started at a beach near highway 1 for the endless coast lines.  The couple wanted a casual session were they wore blue jeans and t-shirt.  As expected, it was quite windy and the water was defintely cold.  However, we ended up getting some really good shots thanks to the couple's eagerness and determination.

One the second day, the couple dressed in their wedding attire and headed to the Stanford campus for their beautiful structures.  It was a great combination of formal wear and the sophisticaed buildings in Stanford.  It gave such a grand feeling which matched the theme we were going after.
