"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.

On t...

 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.

2. Depending on how fast your interne...

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...

 Before I became a wedding photographer, my view of hotels were simply as a place to vacation. As I began to attend and shoot events like the Sheraton San Gabriel Grand Opening and Langham Sunset & Symphony, I realized how big of an impact these hotels make on our local community. They boost our economy by creating jobs, encouraging tourism, becoming a center for other businesses to open around, an...

Following their candle lighting unity ceremony, Jen and Albert took a private moment to exchange a few words. Jen closed her eyes as she listened. Though I couldn't hear their whispers, I saw a smile spread across Jen's face. It was as though nothing could be more perfect than this moment.

Maybe it's because Jen and I are both Arcadia High and USC alums, but when I met her, I felt like we were old...

One of my favorite things about working at the Langham Huntington Pasadena is that they treat both their guests and vendors like family. With such a friendly and welcoming staff, you feel right at home from the moment you enter the doors of their grand hotel.

They recently decided to launch a Heritage at Heart series in order to honor their local community and charities. Yesterday, they kicked off t...

When Carol from The Blushing Details asked me if I would like to be the photographer of the Crate and Barrel Pasadena couples registry event, I was so excited. My parents shopped at Crate and Barrel when they first moved out, and I used to love playing in the Pasadena courtyard. The event was for engaged couples who were looking to register for gifts for their wedding. I love all the furniture and...

 When I heard that Sheraton was opening a new hotel in San Gabriel, I was really excited because that meant a new wedding venue in the San Gabriel Valley. I love working with local venues, so it was on my to do list to visit sometime. I never expected that fate would bring me to be the photographer of their grand opening! 

I had met Candace from Love Is Sweet Events when I was the photographer...

"Today isn't about us. It's about you all-- our family and friends who came here to celebrate with us."

These words from Edward and Lily's welcome speech perfectly describe the type of people they are. Throughout their wedding day, they wanted to make sure all of their guests were happy and relaxed. Lily and Edward are kind hearted, welcoming, and thoughtful. You may remember these two from their Pa...
