san francisco elopement and wedding photography


b. 1986, HK.

Hello, I’m Colleen.

Loving someone and being loved by them in return is one of the greatest experiences of the human condition. During my time as a wedding photographer, I have learned that love manifests itself in so many different ways. Sometimes love is quiet and soft, sometimes its goofy and wild, sometimes its intense and raw, and sometimes is a fluctuating act of all of the above. Regardless of what your love for each other looks like - it has inspired and changed you in so many ways. It’s that love, that I want to capture.

What you can expect from me as your photographer?

You and your partner are my priority. I believe that your love story is one of a kind, and it’s my job to bring that story to life. My main focus will be on you two, capturing the unique way that you love each other.

Quality over quantity. My goal is to photograph the intimate story of you and your partner on the day that you’re choosing to commit yourselves to one another. I won’t be shooting incessantly for the sake of shooting. I take a deliberate and insightful approach to photographing the not-so obvious, and often overlooked moments that go unnoticed in the normal hustle and bustle of a traditional wedding.

Less is more. I only shoot 10 elopements/weddings a year and never back to back. I do this in order for me to do my best work and so my couples can have my full attention.
