Samta + Ajay’s Special Day: Part I

This weekend, we had the honor of joining Samta and Ajay in Southern California for their very special day.  These two are such the perfect couple with matching good looks, high energy, and fantastic dance moves! The ceremony was truly magical.  The sun showed itself for the special day. Ajay, …

A Union Square Tango in Sepia

If you’ve spent anytime in SF, you’d know that there’s always something happening in Union Square, that big open space in downtown SF in the middle of all the shops.  In the summer it may be a live music or dance show and in the winter there’s an ice skating …

Exploration: a Day in the Park

Hung out at Dolores Park recently — the weather has been marvelous in SF with warm days extending late into November this year. Not complaining.  Dolores is amazing on a warm day.  There are people sprawled everywhere, and cute dogs frolicking.  Snapped a few photos and got to play around …

Sonoma on Thanksgiving Weekend

Having 70 degree weather on Thanksgiving weekend means you take advantage of it, and we did.  Decided to go for some wine tasting in Sonoma so we visited Ravenswood and Viansa wineries.  Having wine country be so close is definitely another perk of living in SF.  Only an hour away and you’re transported …

One Fall Day at Baker Beach

This past weekend, I hung out at Baker Beach.  Though it was supposed to be rainy, it cleared up just enough for me to snap a few photos.  I was amazed there was no fog either — and the sun showed its beautiful colors at the end of the day. …

Nothing Wrong with a Little Abstract

I spent a good chunk of yesterday at the de Young museum. I think it’s probably my favorite museum in SF. I love the building itself with its copper facade — and the light indoors is nice and controlled that you can get optimal lighting any time of the day. …

Happy 1 year, M + P!

About a year ago, my friends Michelle and Paul had a stunning wedding in Tahoe. I can’t believe it’s been a year already!  I remember spending an awesome afternoon with them in Half Moon Bay — taking some engagement photos. They’re such a beautiful couple; lotsa looks and wonderful personalities …

Sunsets and Rainbows

I always find myself chasing after sunsets and rainbows, and very often with a camera in hand (I probably share that habit with many).  I will chase after them on rooftops, mountain tops, aboard planes, trains, you name it (as you’ll see from my photos below!)   I have hundreds …

All About Saturday Mornings

When I’m in town and in a relaxed mood, I like to start a Saturday morning with a farmers market and end the morning with a spectacular brunch — most of the time at my favorite brunch place, Slow Club.  This past saturday was our first farmers market visit in …

Carnivorous Vegetarians

Yesterday was a beautiful day in San Francisco — we’re talking 77F on a November day.  Decided to check out the Conservatory of Flowers located in the Golden Gate Park.  It turns out the Conservatory was given the ‘Best First Date’ Award by SF Weekly!  Who knew?! Well, I went there for …

At a Montreal pet store

While visiting Montreal in September, we happened to drop by a pet store.  The animals were adorable and absolutely picture perfect.  I’m used to seeing miserable pets in cages and small spaces at pet stores, but this store in particular had happy animals that were well cared for.  I was …
