Palm Event Center Wedding
Nicole and Danny were actually supposed to have their Palm Event Center wedding last March. But of course, the world was a bit crazy at that time, and they postponed to September of this year. After being together for over a decade, what was one more year to wait? It ended up working out in their favor because their venue was bursting with life on this beautiful summer day! The vineyards were full, the trees were blooming, and the entire day was just perfect.
About The Couple
Nicole and Danny are high school sweethearts that have been together for 14 years! The first time Nicole talked to Danny was to set him up with a mutual friend for her school’s Winter Formal. Thankfully it was an unsuccessful endeavor. They became close friends and started dating Nicole’s sophomore year.
Danny didn’t technically propose to Nicole. They had been together for such a long time and both knew that marriage was on the horizon. After their 12 year mark, they decided that it was time to tie the not. Right after they booked their wedding venue, they actually went to pick out their rings!
Nicole is a clinical lab specialist and Danny is just a month away from finishing grad school. Together they happily reside in the bay area with their cute pup Leo.
Nicole & Danny
To Nicole & Danny- I’m so glad you two finally got your Happily Ever After moment! So much life has happened in these past few years, you both deserved to be celebrated with all your friends and family. Thank you so much for allowing me to document your day! I’m still giggling over your sweet but humourous vows and loved that sunset moment with you two in the vineyards. Danny- best of luck as you finish up your program soon. Safe travels when you two finally take off to enjoy your honeymoon this Fall. Congrats again Mr. & Mrs. Chen!

Client Love Notes
“Wow, just wow. Our experience with Corinna was nothing short of amazing. If you are looking for a Bay Area photographer who not only delivers beautiful photos, but is so nice, incredibly sweet, and goes out of her way for you, please look no further!
Right off the bat, I could tell how friendly she was during our initial meetings. This was very important to me because I knew she took beautiful photos, but I also wanted someone who is a joy to be around since your wedding photographer is going to be up close and personal with you the entire day. And so immediately I knew that I had to book her and I made the right decision.
Our engagement shoot was shot at Sutro Baths. My husband and I were nervous because we had never experienced a professional photoshoot before, but Corinna made us feel comfortable and put us at ease. She was so kind and knew exactly how to pose us to make it seem like we were naturals. She even provided a pop up tent for us to change outfits in. Towards the end of our session, I became lightheaded after climbing the many stairs of Sutro Baths and while I was embarrassed that this caused our session to go overtime, she made sure I was ok, offered me snacks, and never rushed me at all. I really appreciated how caring she was. When we got our engagement photos back, we were in awe at how beautiful they came out. This only made us even more excited for our wedding day.
We also were one of those couples whose wedding was affected by the pandemic. Our original date was the weekend that COVID shut everything down, and you can imagine how gutted we were. Not only was Corinna very accommodating in setting a new date for us, but she also unexpectedly sent us a little gift with such a kind message that really lifted our spirits. (She also sent three more surprises during our entire time with her. This woman is too kind!!)
Finally our long awaited wedding arrived and Corinna was everything I knew she was going to be. The day felt so special. Also she made sure that my train was always perfectly fluffed! Our family members were so impressed with her work and commented multiple times how she really is a professional at what she does. To our biggest surprise, she even delivered our sneak peeks the very next day, super ahead of schedule, which were all so stunning! We honestly can’t stop looking at the photos and we couldn’t be happier!
Now that we’ve been following Corinna for nearly 2 years now, we’ve personally witnessed her following grow and we couldn’t be anymore happy for her. She deserves all of the success that comes her way. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a photographer. Now we are looking forward to more of life’s greatest moments so that we can have the privilege of working with Corinna again in the future.”
