NhuNhu and Dan’s wedding day was the perfect mix of modern and classic. This beautiful day was full of gorgeous white blooms, romantic shades of dusty blue, full tuxedos complete with their black ties, and three (yes, three!) stunning bridal dresses. These two tied the knot in the grand Saint Peter & Paul church where NhuNhu walked down the aisle with her father wearing a gorgeous cathedral length veil. The celebration continued to the city coast side at The Olympic Club, complete with its sweeping ocean views and gentle sea breeze. Between the tea ceremony, tear-jerking toasts, and super energetic first dance- there was not a moment where you couldn’t find this sweet pair smiling. They were all a glow on their big day and I’m so honored to have been the one to capture it for them!
About The Couple: Dan actually grew up in a town very close to my own in the Midwest. His family is from Arlington Heights, a suburb of Chicago. Dan’s parents and his three siblings still reside there. NhuNhu is a Bay Area girl and grew up with her younger brother in the East Bay. NhuNhu & Dan met on Hinge and had their first date at Philz coffee in the SoMa (read more about their engagement on their engagement session post!). You won’t find a sharper San Francisco couple. NhuNhu is a brain injury researcher (super smart, right?). Dan is a business owner and runs his own string of car wash business. They are totally a power couple!
To NhuNhu and Dan: thank you again for allowing me to capture your wedding day. You two were such a stunning Bride & Groom! I can still remember the super sweet look in Dan’s eye as he saw NhuNhu walking down that aisle. And NhuNhu- you were absolutely beaming! I loved capturing the joy of you two as you came back down the aisle as husband and wife. NhuNhu- you are such a kind and caring person who isn’t afraid to ask for what she wants and I absolutely love that about you! It was so evident on your wedding day just how loyal your friends and family are to you two- I was so happy to see this outpour of love and support for a couple who truly deserves it! Dan- I finally got to see that silly side of you out there on the dance floor. Best first dance ever! That dip at the end-wow!! You must watch that on repeat when you receive your wedding day video. Again, it was such a blessing to be included in your day. I hope you love the photos as much as I do!

“Working with Corinna for both our engagement shoot and our wedding day was a breeze. She has the best personality and is so extremely kind and caring about every part of the wedding experience. She really goes out of her way to make the experience of how you want it. Corinna makes your day about you! She has something about her that brings out your natural moments in front of the camera. Corinna is extremely responsive and easy to work with. This is the most important quality to look for in wedding planning because there are so many moving parts and (demanding) people. Corinna is very impressive with her product deliveries. Everything was done super fast. I mean, I was so surprised! I hear so many stories of photos not being delivered in a timely manner — you will not get that with Corinna!”
