    Bay Area | June, 2024

    Lo and behold, it’s the June recap! I am catching up on my personal posts, at least for now.

    Hand Carved San Francisco Mahjong Set

    It was only a year ago that I started playing mahjong with my friends, but it quickly became one of my favorite hobbies. We loved not only teaching various friends and playing the game itself (it’s actually quite simple to get started) but also collecting various mahjong sets. Alex and I found ourselves scouring vintage…

    Kelly & Jeff | Windy Hill Preserve Engagement

    Jeff had proposed to Kelly atop this very hill, so we decided to return to the special spot, atop the Windy Hill Preserve for their engagement session. It turned out that Windy Hill was aptly named, as it was indeed very, very windy. But we were treated to the most beautiful golden hour and a…

    Point Lobos

    I marvel all the time that we get to live in such a beautiful place. It is a true privilege to live in California, with the acknowledgment that we are on the unceded lands of Esselen, Rumsen, Costanoan and Ohlone people. Last month, Alex and I were able to borrow a California State Parks Pass…

    Chrissy & Aaron | Custom Calligraphy Wedding Album

    Chrissy and Aaron had such a special, if extremely foggy, little ceremony atop Mount Tamalpais, and it was perfectly commemorated in these beautiful wedding albums. They chose a beautiful, custom calligraphy cover for their main album, and they added two minis to complete the set. Take a look below. Anna Wu is a wedding photographer…

    Hello May! We begin with the Office of Accountability’s monthly meeting, this time in person at Lindsey’s. Two symphony date nights in a row!

    I was very excited to participate in two different Taiwanese celebrations in May. First, the Taiwanese American Cultural Festival in San Francisco, and second, Taiwan Day with the Oakland A’s. The Taiwanese American Cultural Festival happens in San Francisco’s Union Square on one Saturday each May. I can still remember the first time I saw…
