This past weekend, I shot Tingxu and Brian’s wedding at the beautiful Surf and Sand Resort in Laguna Beach. Tingxu and Brian were so lucky to have had the fabulous Uyen from Sassy Girl Weddings & Events help plan their special day! Everything was gorgeous and the day went flawlessly thanks to Uyen and the other fabulous vendors including Reverend Bruce Danzara (the same reverend that married Doug and I!), Natalie Buketov, Joe Paxton from Atmosphere DJs, Flower Allie Weddings and Scrumptious Wedding Cakes!

Tingxu LOVED being in front of the camera which made my job so easy! She is such a sweet and sassy girl and I loved spending time with her and Brian. They obviously have a very special bond with each other that was so plain to see when I was around them.

Tingxu and Brian…I wish nothing but the best for your bright and happy future together!

Cherie and Steve are getting married in just a couple months and if there engagement session is any indication of how the wedding day will be, I think we’ll be having a blast! In another life, Steve must have been a comedian because he loves making people laugh..especially Cherie :-) They are adorable together and I’m sure their wedding day will be filled with many belly laughs for sure :-)

Here are some favorites from their session..enjoy!
