Stanford Church and Garden Court Hotel

The Garden Court Hotel in Palo Alto has perfect rooms for getting some gorgeous bridal photos! Getting bridal portraits around the Stanford Memorial Church is always fun as well. The combination of these two locations made for a great wedding day for Tim and Wan Xing.

Cynthia and Henry Wedding at St Marys Church and Dynasty Restaurant

For this wedding, I had the pleasure of second shooting with the world renowned Gene Higa. Gene is one of the top photographers in the world that I highly look up to and that made capturing this wedding an awesome experience for me. The day started out with the traditional chinese door games and tea ceremony which is always a great start to the day. We also got some beautiful photos at Stanford where it felt like wedding central with a ton of bridal parties there for portraits. I look forward to hopefully working with Gene again soon!

One of my favorite shots of the day.

The first challenge was to take turns following some yoga poses

The goal of this challenge was to empty the box full of balls by shaking them out.

The bridesmaids always get a kick out of the chinese door games!

The groomsmen help the groom serenade the bride.
