A Wedding in Berkeley and Palo Alto

On the last weekend of July, I took a flight out to the Bay Area in California to shoot a wedding. I’ve been to San Francisco, but never the surrounding cities. The wedding day started out in Berkeley, a colorful and fun city to explore, and continued in Palo Alto. The weather went from light drizzle, clouds, and fog to blue skies and sun. I absolutely love the way that works but I’m sure saying that makes me sound like a total tourist. Without further ado!

A Queens County Farm Museum Wedding

Before I even had the chance to blog about some locations I would like to photograph around New York, I was invited to photograph Steven and Christine’s wedding at one of the coolest locations in Queens. In the backyard of my home borough is this nifty, open spot where cows graze and stretches of crops lend themselves to some epic scenery.

Once again, I was witness to a traditional garb and ceremony, this time Korean. This has definitely been one of the great perks of photography – to experience all sorts of cultures and their wedding practices.

Wedding in China

First!

This was my first overseas wedding, and my first in China. A warm thanks to Beethoven and Vivian for inviting me to their wedding.

Being among good friends, and making new ones as well, it was a different experience altogether, and a positive one at that. We made it through the heat and, with the guys from the US, jet lag. After the reception, we all took a nap (pretty much passed out) on the way back to the hotel. Good times, indeed!
