We did some engagement photos at Alum Rock Park, in San Jose, CA and the afternoon was perfect. They are die hard Sharks hockey fans so there was definitely a color theme in mind. There were hockey jerseys, pucks, and sticks, save-the-date signs, bridal sun glasses, and Jessica even brought her dad's classic 60's Ford Mustang. Who could have asked for me. 

Here are a few teaser shots to tide you over. More to come!

Gamble Garden Wedding Teaser | Jilll & Katie http://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2014/3/gamble-garden-wedding-teaser-jilll-katie There couldn't possibly have been a prettier day for two of the prettiest brides. Jill and Katie were married at Elizabeth Gamble Gardens of Palo Alto, CA. The crowd was full of some of the most hilarious folks and I found myself enjoying their company immensely. As a wedding photographer, it's always a treat to spend the afternoon with lovely and fun people. It makes the job so much more enjoyable! Not to mention that we were in arguably the most beautiful gardens on the peninsula and potentially the Bay Area. Here are a few shots of the happy couple. Thanks for having me on your beautiful wedding day!

Palo Alto Wedding Teaser | Leon and Maria http://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2014/3/palo-alto-wedding-teaser-leon-and-maria Leon and Maria had a beautiful wedding! With lovely vows and colorful floral arrangements, the day was an incredibly joyous occasion. Friends and family came from all over to celebrate with the newly weds long into the evening. The only hiccup was the weather with rain, rain, and more rain. After a week of downpour, the clouds parted just long enough for us to stretch our legs after Leon and Maria's ceremony to snap some quick photos at the park. Their wedding was at the nearby Palo Alto Women's Club, so we dashed out while the sun was briefly shining.  Here are a few shots from our quick trip to the park. Enjoy and there's more to come.

San Francisco Engagement Session | Dan and Paige http://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2014/3/san-francisco-engagement-session-dan-and-paige Boy, oh boy! These two are cute! Dan and Paige's engagement session may just bring forth an audible AWWW or, if we're lucky, there might even be a squeal. In the words of Mr. Rogers, it was a beautiful day in the neighborhood - the San Francisco Presidio neighborhood, to be exact. We started in the Palace of Fine Arts with its gorgeous architecture. Then we moved away from the crowds and followed the sun to the edge of the Presidio. Immigrant Point Overlook had a majestic view of the setting sun with steps leading down to Baker Beach. It was a race against time and we didn't quite make it to the beach but it worked to our advantage since it meant we had the sunset all to ourselves. I love how the colors of their clothes go so well with the sunset's orange and red hues. What a sweet afternoon it was with Dan and Paige. I can't wait for their wedding!

Mountain Winery Wedding in Saratoga, CA | Amy + Rocky http://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2014/2/mountain-winery-wedding-saratoga Amy and Rocky's wedding was elegance personified. Their day began in the enchanting rooms under the Mountain Winery's Banquet Hall. The girls got ready in different colored kimono robes while the guys had clips of their favorite comedies projecting on the wall. There were libations, traditions, flowers and tons of laughter.

The family and wedding party congregated in the Mountain Winery's amphitheater for portraits - the same place where great musicians such as Ella Fitzgerald, Ringo Starr, Stevie Wonder, ZZ Top, and so many other famous artists have performed through the decades. Contemporary artists also play at the Mountain Winery; artists such as OneRepbulic, Gavin DeGraw with Colbie Callait, and even Justin Bieber himself.

As the day progressed and the couple said their vows, the light slowly receded behind the Saratoga hills. It made for incredible ambiance as the couple strolled through the winter grapevines. Even with all the excitement from the day, photographing the couple's first moments as husband and wife had a quiet peace to it. I felt grateful to be witness to this sacred time, because soon after they were rushed into their reception with the kind of wild crowd that only a rock-n-roll venue can inspire.

Destination Wedding in Melbourne, Australia http://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2014/2/destination-wedding-in-melbourne-australia Tons of people have posted photos from their archives with #Tbt or #throwbackthursday. I love seeing old photos from people's childhoods, moments from when they were in college, or photos from their wedding. The wedding photography photos that people post are my favorites for obvious reasons and this got me thinking. I personally gravitate towards destination weddings when choosing who/what to follow online or read about. So I figured, why not share a photo from the first destination wedding that I ever shot.

As a Bay Area wedding photographer, it's not every day that I get to travel to exotic lands to document the blessed event of marriage, so this trip made quite a splash! I had the privilege of photographing this wonderful couple for their wedding in Melbourne, Australia in 2009. The wedding took place on a working farm and then continued the celebration at a nearby hall. These are only two of my favorites, but maybe I can share a few more in future #throwbackthursdays.

New York Skyline http://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2014/1/new-york-skyline Last October, my wife and son flew out with me to New York. While visiting my uncle, we had the good fortune to watch the sunrise from our bedroom. Being a Bay Area photographer, I'm accustomed to taking skyline photos at sunset. It's not everyday that I get to rise with the sun and be clear headed enough to fumble with my camera (not a morning person). Looking back at the photos, I found myself missing New York and wanted to share a couple of the moments that really made the trip for me.

I took this first skyline shot right before running out the door to battle rush hour subway traffic. 

This photograph of my son by the window was snapped on my phone. 

A park performer nearly engulfed my son in a huge bubble. 

An evening skyline of New York City.

I cannot wait to return.

A San Francisco Engagement | Mary and Andrew http://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2013/12/a-san-francisco-engagement-mary-and-andrew It seems to me that Andrew and Mary have a fun time doing just about anything. For their engagement session, we tromped around the Palace of Fine Arts and then made it over to Crissy Fields for the sunset by the Golden Gate bridge. A very San Franciscan photo shoot. They have big plans for their North Bay wedding this Spring and I can't wait to photograph it. Enjoy these photos from our day out on the town.

"It's actually happening!" became the catchphrase of the day. Well over a year of planning went into this celebration and it couldn't have gone smoother. One could hear Mike and Tina laughing throughout the day and see their personalities shine through in every moment. The details were exquisite, the bridal party was a hoot, and the reception was joyful. What more could two wonderful folks like Mike and Tina ask for. Congratulations to you both!

The morning fog burned off and the sun warmed up the day for the ceremony. Their first look was in an amazing outdoor amphitheater surrounded by redwoods. The ceremony was placed a grassy field with a ring of trees around it which made for a beautiful backdrop. Then the reception had a glow of twinkling lights suspended above the tables. Jessica and Eric made one good looking couple! Thanks for having me join you on your big day!

Family Fun at the Park | Palo Alto Family Session http://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2013/11/family-fun-at-sunset-palo-alto-family-session Sunset, lake, dock, cattails, Autumn leaves, and lots of energy. These were our ingredients for Saturday's family photo shoot. My favorite part had to be when the family gathered a pile of Autumn leaves to toss them into the air. This was supposed to make a great shot of the leaves raining down on them. Great idea in theory. In practice, it all rained sideways into the Dad's face. Did not go as planned but these family shoots rarely do. And that is why I keep doing them, because they are completely unpredictable.

It was clear from their vows that their friendship was something to be cherished, which made the Japanese Friendship Garden the perfect location for their wedding. There was a fun streak throughout the group - bouquets being cheered like beer steins, poems about dinosaurs, flash mobbing the father/daughter dance, and "power-up boosts" that blew everyone away. All in all, it was an incredible day! Many thanks to Emily and Anson for making me a part of their day!

A Country Vineyard Wedding | Nick & Madeline Get Hitched | Clarksburg, CA http://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2013/11/nick-and-madeline-get-hitched Nick and Madeline are dear friends so it was a treat to photograph their wedding. They got married at the Wilson Vineyards in Clarksburg, CA. In terms of venues, this place had everything a photographer could want -- a gorgeous outdoor ceremony, with a nearby vineyard for frolicking, complimented by a great old school truck, a beautiful garden for guests to congregate, and a well-lit, refurbished barn for the reception.

Definitely check out the DIY wedding details. They had various sized, bottle vase center pieces, hand crafted table numbers, a vintage trunk for cards, seed envelopes for table seating, and flowers hanging from the ceremony arch. There had home baked pies instead of cake, they whole wedding party sang and danced to "Oh Happy Day" during the recessional, and even nature seemed to be celebrating (see the frog photo below). 

There was also an amazing sequence of photos during the dancing that was probably my favorite moment of the day. When Josh, the amazing DJ, played "Time of my Life" the dance floor exploded with epic lip syncing. And then, out of nowhere, the final LIFT scene from Dirty Dancing is being reenacted by the bride and groom! I just had enough time to snap off a couple photos of the incredible moment but I captured it with all its glory. It was completely impromptu and that was the feeling of the party all night long! Check out the sequence shot below.

As my second shooter and I traveled to the wedding, we drove through some of the heaviest downpours I have ever experienced. No Joke. Thankfully, we pulled up to the venue just as the last drops of rain were letting up. As the afternoon progressed the heavens parted and sun shone through to give the beautiful light you see in the photos below. The day turned out to be as gorgeous as the couple getting married. They had a super fun wedding party and we managed to steal away for some great sunset shots. It was such a joy to photograph my friends' wedding and I can't wait to post more photos.

Their humor and grace was evident by the quality of people they invited to celebrate their wedding. Not only were they blessed with an uncharacteristically gorgeous June day (especially for a Berkeley wedding in Tilden Park), but they were also blessed by many special groups of people during their wedding ceremony. It was a beautiful moment to watch their loved ones offer blessing after blessing upon Ray & Ruth's marriage. It was a joy and privilege to photograph their wedding! Congratulations to the wonderful couple! 

Ruth's son gave one of the best speeches I've ever heard, and it was straight from the Best Man's Speech app!

They had quite the getaway car. Zoom zoom.

Afterwards we found a few spots around SF City Hall to immortalize the day and then ran off to McCovey Cove and AT&T Ball Park. 

We even took a walk on the wild side and shot on a busy bridge between waves of oncoming traffic! In Jessica's words, "Some risks are worth taking, and this was DEFINITELY one of them!"
