This summer, I photographed one of my first weddings! It was such an amazing experience. Many thanks to Manus Chau for giving me the opportunity to second-shoot and, of course, to James for encouraging me to go for it!
Amber + Amel are such a sweet couple and it was an honor to be a part of their big day.
[below] | I got to the church early to take some shots of the guys. I spy Nate Jeung, who I found out is Amber’s brother!!! WHAT A SMALL WORLD!
[below] | Amber and her dad were so cute. Here they are right before he was about to walk her down the aisle.

[below] | After the ceremony, Amber + Amel got the chance to spend some time alone taking some portraits at Alamo Square Park (the park where the Tanner family from Full House hung out!).
[below] | A close-up of the cake topper that Amber made. 10 points for making it herself. Another 10 points for it being made out of Lego!!! The inspiration behind their cake topper: Immediately after their honeymoon, Amber + Amel were moving up to Alaska, where Amel would be stationed for the next couple of years.
[below] | Amber was cracking up during her maid of honor’s toast. They have some pretty incredible and hilarious stories together.
[below] | They took cake feeding to a whole new level. Whipped cream EVERYWHERE.
