Last but not least, I’ve seen more and more powerful cameras in the wedding these days, mostly from guests. Ever wondering how you can get your guests to upload all of your wedding photos in one place? Irene & Charles had an excellent idea! They created an account at Shared the username and password w/ their guests and ask their guests to upload the photos in one place! It worked out really well. Now, you have one single place where every angles of your big day are stored.

Congratulations Irene & Charles!


Congratulations Christina & Phil !

Frank took Irene & Charles around Golden Gate Park for more bridal shots. Frank was by himself in this wedding. I thought he did an amazing job after only been in wedding industry for less than 2 years.

Congratulations Irene & Charles!
