Alden Castle Wedding

I'm Bella!

My work has a very editorial look. I am for classic, clean imagery that isn't heavily altered from real life.  My art is created through framing, composition, emotion and connection rather than props and trends.

How They Met

Freddie and Irene met through the online dating forum of Coffee Meets Bagel. Their first date was at the Boston Thinking Cup and they’ve been inseparable ever since.  When I heard about this adorable little detail, I asked if we could get some photos at the place that brought them together. The photos we created in that space couldn’t have been more special to them. Thank you to the wonderful team at Thinking Cup coffee for allowing us to grab some photos.

Their Venue – Alden Castle + Hei La Moon

The gorgeous Tudor style Alden Castle provided the stunning backdrop for their afternoon ceremony. The gorgeous woods lent a richness to their images. Located in Brookline, if you are in need of a castle in the city, please consider this amazing venue. The Modern Club room set the stage for the preparation photos while the Vintage Ballroom was the location of the ceremony.

The classic choice of Hei La Moon provided the great food for the evening for all of their 350 guests. It was an AMAZING party. DJ @DJDres provided music for the evening. Decorations were provided by Kelly & Joyce.

Thank you for inviting us to document your day guys.

About me

My path here is a bit different than most. I have a background in engineering and accounting/auditing. Like every good Asian daughter, I wanted to make my parents happy. With my first paycheck I bought a camera. I was instantly addicted to capturing life's details and observing people's interactions. When I moved from Toronto to Boston, I found myself without a job but with a fresh start. I got my first gig off Craigslist (crazy!) and have been fully booked ever since. The family that had booked me on Craigslist still keeps in touch with me to this day and I've photographed them quite a few times since. I've been featured in numerous publications both online and in print (Martha Stewart Weddings, Boston Magazine, The Knot). 8+ years later, you've stumbled onto my page.  

I am candid, communicative and caring. For those that know me, they know I have a pretty wicked sense of humour to get people to relax. My goal always is to ensure you are heard and that you are comfortable throughout the process. In my portfolio you can see each family's genuine happiness and comfort in their body language. It takes a lot to create the environment of trust. The rave reviews from my families afterward show you how much they care about me in return. This environment of trust builds from the beginning and I honestly attract the kindest families that allow me to create consistently strong images with heart in order to tell their story.

Everyone always wonders where their family, maternity or newborn session should take place. I'm here to guide you.

TOP RESOURCES

You've undoubtedly have heard of "golden hour". I explain in detail as to why light is everything and allows me to create the images I'm known for.
