"I took the one less traveled by"

Published October 15th, 2012

I am a story teller. You can call it a disease or just a reckless obsession, but I go where my instincts scream "caution," because we all know that stories have to be pretty spectacular to be worth telling. Like you, ever since I was young I've wanted to live a life of adventure, but the warning signs and the human instinct to stay alive, often turns me towards safer options. But no amount of word smithing, flailing of arms, and camera magic can make a story great without an amazing journey.

Ever since I knew what a poem was, I've remembered "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost. Remember the days when you first read and analyzed this poem in class? That was the first time I used my brain for taking inspiration through a story and realized the story behind it could become a mantra important enough to carry with me throughout my life.

To this day, on all my photo walks I look towards the road not taken. I'm always looking for cool new vantage points or difficult trails to stage my pho ...

Klo and Family

Published September 10th, 2012

As geeky as it sounds, I met Klo through Instagram. I used to sit next to the founders Mike and Kevin when we were both at Dogpatch labs starting our companies a few years ago, and have been hooked since the beginning. After following @klodid on Instagram, I discovered her incredible talent for photography in even her iPhoneography.

Since then I've learned a lot about Klo, her photography, and her absolutely beautiful family.

After we met up to talk about wedding photography, we went to the Berkeley Marina for a quick little family photo session. Being a pro and amazing photographer herself (pro not being a measure of photography chops, I will assure you she has incredible skills and talent), she's not often in her photos of her family. Perfect opportunity to try to take a few photos up to her standards.

It was a bit cold and the little ones being a little under the weather, we found a spot that was shielded from the wind and were able to grab a few photos before it was time to c ...

Tran and Adam - Wedding Prep

Published August 31st, 2012

One of my favorite things to photograph is the wedding preparation. The quiet moments and the interactions of the bridal party are playgrounds for photo journalism. Give yourself an assignment, and get that shot.

I had a wonderful time photographing the wedding prep of Tran and Adam.

Light Painting

Published February 22nd, 2012

Light painting is a whole other category of photography, in fact, it's almost only half photography. It's always fun to draw in midair with different light tools, but really getting it nice and interesting is difficult. Merge that with some awesome backdrops, and you get dramatic and "HOW DID YOU DO THAT?" comments.

Here I found my way to the east lake shore of Lake Tahoe in Nevada. This is where the bonsai tree rocks are. After sunset, we decided to paint some flowers and get the magical landscape as well.

Ya-ting and James Wedding

Published January 26th, 2012

James was my very first best friend I've ever had. From the days of going to his home to play with legos, which was really a decoy to go do word problems with his dad, to running around Cornell elementary, all the way through high school, we always were good friends and I've literally grew up with him.

It was an honor to be able to witness this amazing event of his, and a bigger privilege to photograph his wedding with the wedding photographer Timothy Mak!

Here are a bunch of outtakes! More official photos and slideshows etc will be coming from Tim =)

What a great wedding. It was a lot of fun!
