Matteo's Birthday | Children's Events | Superfranks, Dublin, CA

Matteo is my 2 year old pal (also, my kids' 2 year old pal) and I took some of these photos to celebrate his little party. Nothing fancy here, just brought my camera along for a few shots and enjoyed the rest of the night having a foam fight with some kids. And pizza too :)

Samantha's Birthday | Children's Events | War Memorial Community Center, Daly City, CA

November 9, 2013
War Memorial Community Center, Daly City, CA

I love an event that is close to home! Samantha's birthday was very near one of the neighborhoods I grew up in, and it was a real joy to cover her special evening. There was magical entertainment provided by Magic Dante which the kids loved (their reactions speak loudly), Samantha and her friends sang a few tunes, and the kids had a game of musical chairs to end the night.

Justin and Barbra | Wedding | Acqua Hotel in Mill Valley and Meadow Club in Fairfax, CA

July brought to me two opportunities to serve as a second shooter. It was no doubt a very busy month for me with my personal and work schedules, but I am very honored to be asked to do these. And I am always ever happy to accept and experience beautiful weddings in fabulous venues.

Justin and Barbra prepared at the Acqua Hotel in Mill Valley. I got to work with PXL Photography and Three Motion Media (awesome videographers!!) once again, and they make for an absolutely fun team. After all the preparations and detail shots, we drove over to the Meadow Club on the hills of Fairfax. There were deer lounging about the golf course. But more importantly, this was a great great choice for their wedding. It is truly a wedding venue with its scenic landscape, and the reception was a short walk over. With the awesome interior and wonderful lighting the space provided, it was a photographer's dream venue!

Official photos are presented by PXL Photography. The photos in this gallery are my personal favorites that I shot and am now sharing. Click on the image below to see my personal picks!

Eliazar & Emily | Wedding | Central California

Last July, I assisted as a second shooter for a wedding in Stockton, CA. If you're not familiar, that's near Stockton. If you're not familiar still, it's one of the hottest towns in Central California on a July day. The ceremony took place at the Cathedral of Annunciation, and if you know me, I LOVE church interior photography. We then headed out to an event hall in Lathrop or Lodi (I can not remember at the moment) for the reception with the newlywed's well-wishing guests.

For this wedding, I got to work with some of the best camera guys -- my officemates at The Filipino Channel! This wedding had it all good with videographers and an editor that did an excellent job with the same-day edit montage!

The official presentation of images is by PXL Photography, and these are just my personal favorites from this wedding. Click on the image to begin the slideshow!

B family | Portraits | Stow Lake in San Francisco, CA

It's been nearly a year since I've done family portraits, so when I was asked to do my first one of 2013, I felt a little rusty but eager to get back into it.

The B family came out to Stow Lake for their portraits on a gorgeous November afternoon. The sunlight and weather were just right, and mix that with a beautiful family and we got some wonderful Fall photos at the lake!

Last May, I got to join 3AF at their Asian Marketing Summit at MGM in Las Vegas as a photographer. It was a day and a half of summit, and many shots were taken. Just a quick share of that... Please follow this link >> http://3af.org/eventphotos/3af2013conference.htm

Lumpias and Martinis | Photobooth | Philippine Center, San Francisco

This past August 11, 2013, we set up the PEPbooth for a fundraiser event called "Lumpias and Martinis." The proceeds supported local Filipino artists, and there were plenty of lumpia, sisig and martinis to go around. It's always a funtime with the PEPbooth, as you will see in these wacky photos :)
