Happy New Year!

2011 is around the corner. We are very excited about the new challenges in 2011. Our summer will be fully packed with wedding shoots. At the same time, I hope everything will be smooth when Jessie delivers the baby in May. Photo shoots will start again in 3 weeks. I invested in some new lenses and equipment for our growing team. However, I still don't have time to set up our new i7 computer.

If I'm not mistaken, a good news may come in 2 weeks... If it's real, I will share with blog readers at once.

Below is Danielle + Stephen's Wedding Slideshow.

Happy New Year!

Fariba & Laolu Wedding @ Swan-E-Set

The wedding of Fariba & Laolu was very special. It was a mix of Nigerian, Iranian, and western cultural wedding. About a year ago, they booked us from England and we never met them until the week before the wedding. Jessie and I were very excited for being able to document such a unique wedding.

My first impression of Fariba & Laolu was "sweet girl & cool guy". On the wedding day, we felt like working with two professional models. Especially Laolu, he is the most fashionable groom we have ever shot! Although we didn't have much time for creative photo session, we could get a lot of photos. We LOVE this HOT couple a lot!!!

Besides the great arrangement from Swan-e-set, CC Roa from "Roa Designs" helped us a lot. Their lighting and decorations made everything looked very romantic and elegant. Walls were painted by color lights.

We also need to thank our good friend Desmond for assisting us this time. He did a fantastic job in helping us with lighting and capturing candid shots.

Ceremony & Reception: Swan-e-set Bay Resort & Country Club
Decoration: Roa Designs

Exhibition: Small Strobes Big Ideas!

We will have a few photos in an exhibition: "Small Strobes Big Ideas!" @ PhotoHaus Photographic Gallery which is located at 14 West 7th Avenue, Vancouver, BC. It will start from November 18th to December 1st. This exhibition is mainly for showing the photos shot with small batteries powered strobes.

Joe McNally will be there on opening day. Because of Joe's one photo that I saw, I decided to start my photography career (See below). I read his books again and again to learn from him. Jessie and I are his hardcore fans. It's good to see him again in Vancouver.

News To Share

These are the first 2 maternity photos Of Jessie. Once I have time again, I will take more photos for her.

We've (I mean Brian, Joseph, and me) been shooting weddings and e-sessions without Jessie since 3 months ago. Jessie's due date is May next year, so she will be back to the team after June, 2011. I'm so sorry that we can't take too many bookings from April to June because I need time to prepare and learn to be a father. Our July is fully packed with weddings. Jessie expects me to get her a brand new camera body next year (may be a 1D Mark IV). Ok sure. No problem.

We will attend WPPI's convention in February @ Las Vegas. I will attend a few workshops and see other photographers from the other side of the world.

Primmy + Dominic Engagement Session

We met Primmy in Ivy & Gordon's Wedding a few months ago. During the creative photo session on the wedding day, Primmy asked why we always put her in some sexy poses. Jessie and I both agree that she is sexy and beautiful. This couple got a new car about 2 weeks ago, and we included it in the photos. Moreover, you will find Primmy has a few different sets of outfits in this session. She has a very good fashion sense.

This time I shot with Brian. He got a lot of great shots and did a good job in helping me with the lighting.
