What a privilege it was for me to shoot for this sweet couple with an enormous heart. Not just for each other, but for everyone around them. Han is the conservative man, gentle and kind who won the heart of Surabaya’s own beauty, Amelia. More than beautiful, this woman is humble and loving and so much fun to be around. And San Francisco and Napa Valley provided the perfect backdrop for their pre-wedding portraits. California’s treasure trove of love in the wine country and the breezy city was a great place to capture the chemistry between these two gentle souls in love.
One funny experience I would keep with me for a long time would be on that day we spent at Napa Valley. Han and Amelia were being congratulated by everyone around them after the shoot in their wedding attires. And then shortly after, they caught sight of David and Victoria Beckham (yeah, newsflash… California’s wine country is romantic even more world-class celebrities!) Almost as if on reflex, both picked up their feet (and Amelia’s long train) to go after them! It was spontaneous and super fun (and not to mention hilarious!) to witness!
Anyway, these two sweethearts are amazing. And next week they will finally be tying the knot. I wish them all the lemonades to enjoy under the blazing sun and warm shelters during the storms that may pass. Congratulations Han and Amelia!
