John and Katy’s wedding at the Fairmont in downtown San Jose

Another great wedding in downtown San Jose! I love shooting in my backyard (my studio is just a block down the street from the Fairmont). Sarah and I had another long day ahead of us with two tea ceremonies at their parents’ homes before the main ceremony at the Fairmont.

Katy’s father walked her to the car that would take her to John’s parent’s home for the tea ceremony. In the Chinese tradition her parents will remain at their home while she travels with her bridegroom to his parent’s home for a tea ceremony.

Then it was off to John and Katy’s new home where they had some time to relax and get ready for the upcoming traditional ceremony.

We had a a bit of time before the ceremony to do a photoshoot. It was beautiful in Saratoga, so I took them to a nice spot I had noticed earlier that morning for some pictures.

Everyone were seated to watch the ceremony. The ceremony took place in the same ballroom as the reception. I have to say, I rarely see this done. The advantage to having the ceremony and reception take place in the same room is that everyone is already seated for the reception!

The rest of the evening was full of fun, laughter, and even a bit of dancing.

If you have any questions please don''t hesitate to post them or send me an email. I'm always interested to hear what you think! Thanks for your support. Ten years ago, I left the mortgage and real estate business to pursue photography, which is a passion of mine. The mortgage business was excellent at that time but I was tired of it. I had a daughter that was just born and I wanted to do something that would allow me to spend more time with her and at the same time do what I wanted. I knew that I enjoyed people photography and soon discovered that I have a very real and special talent for it. I discovered that I was particularly good at capturing moments and revealing emotions through pictures. This came instinctively for me and allowed me to develop a style that was very comfortable for me to work in. My photography quickly became popular in the bay area and I've earned a large number of referral businesses as a result. In fact, i'd say I most of my business growth is the result of referrals from clients and online sites like Yelp. I currently have a studio in downtown San Jose and photograph weddings and portraits all over the bay area and California.
