Our first 1-on-1 portrait photography class in 2014 was a blast. A 6 hours of intensive learning with our photography enthusiast student Irma, our beautiful model, Gigi, who was a former Oakland Raiders cheerleader, and our super lighting assistant Malia. It was a 6 hours crash course I designed for Irma who wants to get a more solid skill in her DSLR camera with a focus on the lighting and posing in portrait photography.

If you are also a photography enthusiast but don’t know how to take it to a next level, contact me and I will customize something for you, or put you on our interest list for the upcoming DSLR / Portrait Lessons. email me chung@chungliphotography.com. If you want a portrait session like this for yourself, feel free to email me to get a quote as well. We provide makeup and hair styling service, you just need to bring your outfit and look pretty !

Words from our fabulous wedding planner Tria of Honey & Twine Weddings and Events

Any wedding is about two people uniting their futures. It is about becoming a new family with this wonderful person that you love, and in doing so, joining your families together. There’s something about a multicultural wedding that symbolizes this in a particularly touching way. Bringing families together who don’t speak the same language and who are unfamiliar with each other’s customs can be daunting. But seeing parents and even grandparents reaching across those language and culture barriers in the name of love is simply magical.

It is in this spirit that we want to share with you Annie & Henry’s wedding. Annie is Korean American, and Henry is Chinese American. Bride and groom definitely wanted to have the white dress dream wedding, but they didn’t forget about their families in the planning process. They could have chosen to do a traditional American wedding, or to incorporate one of their cultures into the day, but they were firm that they wanted to represent all cultural parts of them as a couple: American, Chinese, and Korean.

For Annie, this meant 3 outfit changes! But she handled it like a pro. First she wore her white princess gown for bridal portraits at their gorgeous venue, The James Leary Flood Mansion in San Francisco.

After portraits, she and Henry both changed into hanbok for the Korean ceremony paebaek. Annie’s family eagerly explained to Henry’s family that the couple would bow to them, and then relatives would get to throw dates and chestnuts for the couple to catch. The number they caught represented how many children they would have. Relatives also had the opportunity to offer their words of wisdom and well wishes. There was much laughter about how many relatives wished them plentiful children.

Back upstairs in Annie’s dressing room with the breathtaking view, she changed into her beautiful (and might we add sexy!) red cheongsam (chipao), a Chinese dress given to her by her mother-in-law. This time it was Henry’s family’s turn to explain to Annie’s family the tradition of the Chinese tea ceremony. Bride and groom served tea in special cups to their relatives, who in turn gave them red envelopes with gifts inside.

One last change back into her white dress, and Annie & Henry commenced their western wedding ceremony in the courtyard of the mansion. By incorporating all of their cultures, they not only made both of their families feel at home, they also gave their guests a truly fun and unique experience. Here’s to sharing traditions with friends and family, whatever they may be!
