"We kept our guest list small, and what this means is that each one of you have played an important role in our lives"

Throughout Laura and Juan's wedding, you could see that her words rang true. As each guest approached them, they were greeted with a huge hug. It seemed as though every guest was genuinely happy to celebrate with them, and they had been counting down the days until this wedding.

 Before I book a wedding with a couple, I have to meet with them for a client consultation. During this meeting, I usually answer any questions they might have regarding my wedding packages. I know I've found a T.Wu Couple when the first time I meet them feels like hanging out with friends rather than a meeting. 

Usually my client consultations are about an hour or less. When I met Vivian...

 This blog post is both for my clients and photographers. After I shoot a session, I send a Pixieset gallery for my clients to download their photos. This blog post is to address the best ways to backup your images for free!

Online Storage

Tips for backing up online:

1. Upload about 100-150 images at a time. If you try to upload more, it'll skip images or time out.

Jenny and Thanh met when she was in fifth grade and he was in third. She was best friends with his older sister, and saw him as the annoying younger brother. When they got older, Thanh joined the Navy and she saw less of him. After he came back, he seemed more confident and didn't seem so much like her best friend's annoying younger brother anymore. They started dating and the rest is history.

I met Mina and Johnny at Tina and Raul's wedding. When they had contacted me to shoot their engagement session, I was ecstatic. I love when I get to work with friends of my former T.Wu Couples.

They told me they wanted their engagement session somewhere that was personal to their relationship, so they chose the Korean Friendship Bell and a cute park in the heart of Palos Verdes. The Friendship Bell...

If you read Calvin and Ylse's engagement session blog, you'll know that I met Calvin through James. Though Calvin is from Florida, they got to know each other since their parents did business together.

When I got together with James, I had heard a lot about Calvin through their stories about him. When Calvin came to visit, James invited me to dinner with them. I didn't want to impose because I knew...

 The morning of their engagement session, I found myself in the ER. I didn't know it, but my body is apparently susceptible to getting UTI's. I never had to reschedule a session before, so I was anxious to tell them the news. I knew Linda had already scheduled hair and makeup and florals, and I felt so bad when I found out they couldn't be cancelled. Luckily for me, Linda is one of the sweetest peo...

Sylvia and Simon met playing the online game Gunbound when they were 13. She lived in Tennessee while he grew up in California. They kept in touch online, and finally met in person when she went to college in California. 

For her birthday, he took her on a weekend trip to Laguna Niguel. When they arrived at their Airbnb, she found an iPad. Since she wanted to figure out who the owner was to return i...

They dined on the top floor of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Each hour for only 5 minutes, the Eiffel Tower has a twinkling light show. As Juan and Laura finished their meal, they arrived at the bottom perfectly at the time of the light show. It seemed like the perfect moment for a proposal, but Juan didn't because this moment was a decoy.

They planned only to go to Paris for a week, but he knew that E...
