Happy first year anniversary to a sweet couple!  Last May, Emi + Curtis exchanged vows up in the clouds at the Sky Deck at the Loews Regency.  The Sky Deck has such a picturesque view of San Francisco and makes for a dreamy venue for a wedding.  It was definitely heavenly!

Editorial Shoot | St Regis Punta Mita | Mexico

On a recent stay at the St Regis Punta Mita, we had the opportunity to style and photograph a dinner party for the St Regis.  The staff was so helpful and gave us to access to everything that we needed.  They provided the dinnerware, lines, and all the decor.  They even went out and cut fresh flowers from their property for our table design.  As you can see, the talented wifey, Nancy Liu Chin styled everything perfectly for the camera.  Want to know how to be the perfect host for a dinner party like this?  Hop over to Style Me Pretty Living to view Nancy’s top 5 tips for hosting the perfect party.  But first, a guacamole making class offered by the the St Regis.  It doesn’t get any fresher then this!

Golden Gate Bridge, Cherry Blossom Engagement | San Francisco | Jo + Bryan

We were fortunate to catch the tail end of cherry blossom season this spring in Golden Gate Park for Jo & Bryan’s engagement session.  I never tire of these beautiful blooms!  It’s too bad they only make their appearance just once a year.  Jo & Bryan are such a fun loving couple and I love how they interact with each other.  Their playfulness really shows in the photos.  I can’t wait for their wedding later this year!
