I’ve undergone a whole new look for my photography business to reflect some of the life changing decisions I’ve made. To check out my new site and blog click here and here.

Of course, you can always visit this old blog or still find me on Facebook. :)

life | still alive … i do | julienne + andy

with one comment

I’m terrible at blogging, but rest assured I’m alive. It’s been an extremely busy few months that I have tried real hard to find time to blog and post all the engagement sessions and weddings I’ve been shooting. From time to time, I do post teasers on my Facebook Fan Page so be sure to check it out. There really isn’t enough hours in a day and not enough days in a week. I think it’s time I hire an assistant… any takers? :)

One gorgeous teaser of Julienne from her wedding at the Museum of Latin American Art.

sale | $1 promotion

leave a comment »

What? A sale? That’s right. It’s the post-MLK and pre-President’s Day sale of the year. Heck, it can even be a Valentine’s Day sale, too. <3

If you order two (2) 16×20 double-weighted prints of the same image, the second print is ONLY $1!  That’s less than the cost of bubble gum.

Offer ends March 1, 2012.


Also, don’t forget — If you purchase any kind of album, the companion albums (you know, those additional albums you order to give to your parents and grandparents) are 20% off.

Engagement Album and Guest Book (“Coffee Table Book”)

Flush Mount Wedding Album Box

Images in a Flush Mount Album can spread across an entire 2-page spread, including the spine.

life | feeling alive… engagement | kristen + jason

leave a comment »

Happy 2012, everyone! And I hope you’re still keeping to those resolutions you made. :) But even if you fail, you got to keep going.

Doug, the boyfriend (there, I put a label on it – haha), and I are continuing our training for the Surf City Half Marathon that’s coming up in a few weeks. We weren’t as diligent with training over the holidays because of all the eating travel we’ve been doing since November. Nonetheless, we managed to run 8.5 miles last weekend and it felt great. We thought we couldn’t do it, but we persevered and got through a 500-ft elevation gain over the course of 2 straight miles. In addition to last week’s run, I also did a 26-mi ride the next day with the WB Tri Team. Both days… Hard. It was.

Once I reached the top of Griffith with the WB Tri Team, I indeed felt more human than I’ve ever felt. I often ask myself why I subject my body to its limits and I often answer with, “I like feeling alive.”

Tomorrow I shoot Kristin and Jason’s wedding. The first wedding for 2012. I’m excited!

Wishing Kristin and Jason all the best!!

Happy Holidays everyone!

It’s been very busy with family gatherings and some R&R we’ve been doing. I can’t count how many weekends in the last few months I’ve been to Lodi, Napa, Vegas, Ohio, and Houston. In fact, I can’t seem to remember when was the last weekend I had down time. Nonetheless, I’m finding time to put up Miki + Dion’s beautiful and simple afternoon wedding. These 2 are one of my favorite clients – they’re both so happy and carefree as well as all their friends I met at the wedding. Such a good time!

I’m wishing everyone Happy Holidays and a Happy and Prosperous New Year!!

…And for reading this, I’m offering a discount of 20% off any one-hour portrait session (which includes the disc of high resolution images) or 10% off the highest wedding photography package if you book by February 2012 and if you mention this post.

Venue: Hotel Maya, Long Beach (near Queen Mary)
