A hot hot sizzlin summer!

Hello everyone it's been a while...I apologize for the lack of posts, there has been so much preparation going on lately...one of my best friends Esther Park is coming out with a Christian/gospel album and I have had the privilege to style her album jacket photoshoot. She is also getting married and Dusty Rose has been busy preparing her floral arrangements for her engagement party. =) So excited! (Click on her name for her youtube channel...she is amazing!!) Pictures to come soon.

Whoo so this is one hot sizzlin summer we are having! When am I going to be bundled up with tights, boots, scarves and more fall essentials? Hmm...

Do you long for shaved ice? <<

good ole Popsicle sticks?
swoon worthy vintage fan to blast the heat away? <<
for me a Starbucks iced coffee hits the spot every single time =)  <<
Whatever helps you get through the heat...remember
Have a wonderful Tuesday!!!

Eunhye's Bridal Shower

Hi everyone!  A couple weeks ago, Eunhye's bridesmaids threw her a bridal shower, and I got to be the photographer!  Here are a few pictures I took that day~

Here are a few pictures of the bride and guests~

Then the groom showed up, and I got to take a few pictures of the cute couple!

Hope you enjoyed the photos!  ^^

                                                relaxing and snuggling in bed?

                                                   hitting the beach?

Loves me not...loves me!

How is everyone doing? Remember the photoshoot I mentioned in a earlier post? Well we had a fun day yesterday (even though it was super hot!) with vintage bunting, books with twine, classic vintage lunch boxes...well I'll let the pictures speak for itself. I particularly loved this inspiration shoot because well...I was the one behind the lens this time! It was truly amazing to envision something and see it come to life. I must also give credit to Tom Kim from EMM photography and his partner Jon Visitisomboon who was my model and..he is also my boyfriend! =)  I was really blessed because I was surrounded by a creative team whom I truly love. Jenny Kim was my other model and is like a sister to me. Thank you everyone for making this happen!

The full post will be coming soon but here are some previews!

Hope you like it!

Wednesday Musings

Happy September!! Wow summer is already coming to an end and that means for some the end of vacations and lazy mornings and back to the routine of daily life. This summer has been very special to me because I was a bridesmaid for the very first time. Usually we take care of weddings from the outside but actually being part of a wedding has been so different and exciting. I realized the importance of your girlfriends. Having each others love and support has been incredible. Even though summer is coming to an end, grab a cup of (iced) coffee, go shopping or even take a quick last minute road trip with your girlfriends!

How amazing is the desert-bachelorette party photoshoot? Definitely swoon worthy and reminds me of my girlfriends and when was the last time we went on a trip. Anyone packing yet?
