Riding Ranch at Sunset

I just past a riding ranch on the way home. It was about sunset time, when all the horses were eating their dinner quietly. The sun gave them shining edges around the bodies. One or two horses checked me, a uninvited visitor, time to time curiously, but back to dinner pretty soon.

昨天开车路过附近的一个马场,顺路拐进去看了一看。当时已值落日时分,马儿们都安安静静的在吃晚餐,落日余辉给它们镶了一道金边。时不时有一两匹好奇的马儿过来端详一下我这个不速之客,过一会儿又回头去吃自己的了。好一派悠然自得的西部风光。

Santa Monica Pregnancy Session – Fiona

Fiona and Jerry came to LA from Shanghai and invited me to shoot their maternity session in Santa Monica Beach. The sunset of Santa Monica Beach was as gorgeous as usual. The silhouette showed the perfect curve of Fiona. Second part had been shot at Le Meridien Delfina Santa Monica. The interior design of their room was nice and cozy with well designed lighting, good for maternity session, especially with two set of costumes Fiona prepared by herself. 

Fiona 和Jerry从上海来到洛杉矶,邀请我为他们拍摄了这组孕妇照。Santa Monica Beach的落日一如既往的漂亮,余辉勾勒出孕妈妈美好的曲线。第二组是在他们下榻Le Meridien Dekfina Santa Monica Hotel拍摄的。酒店布置温馨雅致, 灯光设计很美,很适合这样的孕妇照,配合Fiona自己准备的两套服装,非常美丽。

Meeting Vesper

I met Vesper officially this morning in Thousand Oaks Westlake Village, who was the guest of Si Chen’s wedding at The Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel. I took couple photos for her during that day.

We talked about some details of the wedding photo session. Finally we realized both of us graduated from USC, and from same hometown – Hangzhou,  and our fathers had worked in same University – Zhejiang University. What a small world!

Vesper is preparing her wedding this July. Hopefully I will become her wedding photographer and have chance to shoot this beautiful bride.

Pasadena City Hall + UCLA Royce Hall + Santa Monica Pre Wedding – Yu Lian & Xiaoting

Yu found me by Google search engine accidentally. We talked about all the details and decided the session day was Dec 22rd.

On Dec 21st, I realized it was highly possible to rain at 22nd, so I called Yu to see if we need to reschedule. Both of them thought little rain did not matter.

At Dec 22nd, three days before Christmas, we arrived at the first spot in the morning – Pasadena City Hall, where a big Christmas tree standing at the front entrance. It was little rain and temperature was quite low, but both of us were quite excited for the holiday decoration. Here we started.

UCLA Royce Hall was the second spot. Gorgeous architecture as usual. We shot around sunset time by mixing natural light and flash lights. We chose Santa Monica 3rd Promenade as our night shot location with beautiful lighting and nice music. Christmas is on the way.
