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...

 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...

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...

My favorite thing about graduating from USC is the Trojan family. Whenever I meet people who are fellow alumni, there's an instant connection. For Kathryn and Ian, it felt like we were old friends from the moment we met. We bonded over talking about food, travel, and sharing stories. Their engagement session felt like we were just hanging out.

Thank you so much Kathryn and Ian for having me shoot y...

Like James and I, Cynthia and David are high school sweet hearts. They have been together for over 10 years since they were 15 years old! Her parents knew him from church, and wanted him to be her date for her quincinera. Funny thing was that she didn't want him to be her date at the time. However, he was on her court, and they got to know each other. Who knew that guy would turn out to be her futu...

John asked Michelle out on Valentine's Day. They had been co-workers for a while, and he had finally decided to ask her on a date. It was only fitting that the proposal would happen on their anniversary: Valentine's Day! They were in Las Vegas to celebrate their anniversary, but Michelle could tell something was different because of how funny John was acting. Her instinct was right because on Valen...

Calvin is James' family friend since childhood. Over the years, I've gotten to know him through us all hanging out at his favorite restaurant Din Tai Fung whenever he came to visit from Florida. The last time he came out, we had the pleasure of meeting his girlfriend Ylse (at Din Tai Fung of course). She was incredibly sweet, and I was excited to get to know her.

When Calvin asked me to shoot their...

 One of my favorite things about working with my couples on their wedding is planning their engagement session! This session is when I get to really know my couples through exchanging texts of different outfit ideas, choosing a location, and learning more about them on the day of the session.

With so many Pinterest ideas, how do you even know where to start for session? Hopefully by the end of this...

Raul was referred to me by his co-worker (and T. Wu Bride) Kristine! I'm so thankful to work with sweet friends of past T. Wu couples.  

They are a very relaxed couple who enjoys hanging out at home, eating, and are bonded by their faith in God. I loved getting to know them through their entire wedding process, and was so excited for their wedding.   

Every time Tina and Raul look at e...
