A couple months ago, we were able to spend twelve days exploring China. Starting in Tianjin, we began our adventure with a little hiccup, leading Ed to experience the inside of a Chinese hospital firsthand . . . eek! Luckily, Ed recovered quickly. We then made our way to Chang’an to visit Aileen’s grandparents. We haven’t seen […]

What we love even more than adventure is expanding our horizons. We can’t resist experimenting with the latest photography trends and honing our skills behind the lens. Practicing and learning new techniques is something that we hold very dear as it forces us to go beyond our comfort zone. It makes us not only appreciate […]

I may have been born in California, but I never had the opportunity to explore its cliffs, redwood forests, and breathtaking ocean views. And that’s exactly what we did for my 29th birthday. We stayed a few days in Big Sur before heading down to Joshua Tree to hang out with 100 of the most talented wedding photographers ever. Our […]

From our family to yours, we wish you all happy holidays!! XOXO

Happy Thanksgiving!! We can’t believe how quickly this year is flying by. And before we go to our family’s house to celebrate and give thanks to all the amazing people and experiences we have encountered this year, we wanted to share our little Thanksgiving tradition – staying up late the night before to bake pies!

A couple weeks ago, we decided to take the day off and enjoy the last few days of fall with our friends. After a flat tire, check engine light, and a few bathroom breaks (and creating the next hit song, “We Are Never Going To Get There”), we made finally made it to Starved Rock State […]

On Thursday morning, we impulsively decided to drive the Road to Hana and beyond, completely circumferencing Haleakalā (which voids the insurance for your rental vehicle due to unsafe driving […]

Oh wow… I can’t believe it. In less than 6 hours, I will no longer be a practicing attorney. I will be a photographer. And yes, I’m freaking terrified. But you know what? I’m also excited, hopeful, and most importantly, happy. I’m so happy to finally pursue my passion surrounded by the most caring and supportive community of […]

If there’s one thing you should know about us, it’s that we absolutely adore each other’s sense of adventure. We split our time between cuddling on the couch, binge watching re-runs of our favorite TV shows, and discovering new places. So for our one year anniversary, it was only fitting that we went exploring. Two days before our […]

We have been together for almost 14 years. Wow. We still can’t believe how lucky we are to have been able to grow up together. We’ve seen the best and worst of each other, and have overcome difficulties that no one ever prepares you for. But even after all that, one year of marriage has changed […]
