Taka had asked me if I would like to photograph him proposing to his girlfriend Tao in Huntington Beach.

So of course I said yes!

I’ve known Taka for about a year now, we met through mutual friends, and found out we have a few more mutual friends. Small world huh?

Taka wanted me to take these photos incognito. Good thing Tao never met me, or else she would have known something was up.

I sat on a bench taking pictures of my surroundings when they arrived so I wouldn’t be so obvious when taking pictures of them.

Here they are arriving.

PINIMAGE

Lets go towards the cliffs to take some pictures.

PINIMAGE

PINIMAGE

I’m trying to tell Taka where him and Tao should stand so I get some good facial reactions.

PINIMAGE

Crap! She’s looking straight at me!

PINIMAGE

Mom, can you take some pictures for us?

PINIMAGE

PINIMAGE

Mom slowly started walking closer and closer to them.

PINIMAGE

Scoot back! you’re getting too close!

PINIMAGE

Taking out the ring!

PINIMAGE

Will you marry me?

PINIMAGE

Strike a pose!

PINIMAGE

Putting the ring on.

PINIMAGE

Yay!

PINIMAGE

Tao’s mom, Tao, and Taka.

PINIMAGE

So much happiness.

I’m so glad that everything worked out and I was able to capture this moment for them.

Congratulations on the engagement Taka and Tao!

Stone was born April 25, 2010. These photos that are coming up were taken April 26.

Let me just tell you a story about how I came to take pictures when he was less 24 hours after he was born.

Me and his mom Jasmine are friends- you can see her maternity photos and the baby shower photos that I did for her.

I came down to San Diego for a few days on Sunday the 25th and we had previously decided to hang out on Monday. I text messaged her sunday night. I then got a message a few hours later saying “uh.. Jas had her baby today. She and baby are doing well”. Apparently I had text messaged her while she was in the middle labor with Stone.

So of course I got super excited! Because she was due this past weekend while I was supposed to be in Mexico. So I’m really happy that I got to see Stone and Jasmine and Jorge.

So these pictures are of Stone Monday afternoon at the hospital. He’s less than 24 hours in these photos!

I’m really happy I was able to capture these moments for her πŸ™‚

Stone is so precious!

I hope you enjoyed these photos! I told Stone he may hate me now for making him naked (I didn’t pst the naked photos) and being a little bit cold, but he’ll love me in the future so that he has these photos πŸ™‚

Good thing I like kids. I told Jasmine she can’t go MIA on me just because she had Stone.

  • Christine Chang - The mom is so pretty! Especially right after having a baby. I would look like a turd.

  • Chrissy Kim Photography - […] is a little over a month now. I was there to take his photos at the hospital, baby shower, and his mom’s maternity […]

I was the photographer for Industry on Saturday April 24 for The House of Glam.

It was my first time going to Industry, it used to be Area but like SBE’s style, it closed and revamped and then renamed.

Who’s on the guest list?!

PINIMAGE

Whoever thought to put a burger join IN a club is genius. And after the club closes, they bring a burger cart outside so that people can order after as well.

PINIMAGE

Hong Kong celebrity, singer and actress Fiona Sit was also in attendance.

PINIMAGE

As well as Taiwanese actor, Joseph ChangPINIMAGE

The rest of the photos can be found at The House of Glam’s website under gallery for Industry on April 24, 2010!

Hope you enjoy!

  • Chrissy Kim Photography - […] in one of my posts how I said I was venturing into Nightclub photography? Well I’m still doing it. As I’m […]

Esther and Daniel went to the Beverly Hills Courthouse and got their civil marriage done. Because they are getting married in Mexico, the rules are a little bit different, so they had to get a civil marriage done.

I of course, went with them to not only be their photographer but as their witness.

Here they are signing the paperwork

PINIMAGE

Waiting for the judge to call them so they can have their ceremony.

PINIMAGE

Here they are standing in front of the judge.

PINIMAGE

PINIMAGE

PINIMAGE

Poor thing started to cry.

PINIMAGE

I now pronounce you Husband and Wife. The judge even threw some flowers up in the air.

PINIMAGE

You may now kiss the bride!

PINIMAGE

Here I am signing as their witness. (It looks like I just woke up :/ don’t hate)

PINIMAGE

Yay! They’re married!

PINIMAGE

PINIMAGE

Their Β real wedding ceremony is this weekend in Cabo San Lucas at the Esperanza Resort.

I unfortunately will not be able to take pictures during the ceremony (because I’m the Maid of Honor) but will be able to take pictures throughout the trip! Christine Chang is the wedding photographer so check her website later for pictures from the wedding!
