About the Photographer

As a photographer, I get to witness and hear firsthand stories of how couples meet. Wei and Zi-Ling’s story is definitely one of destiny. They met in rare circumstances. Zi-Ling was from Taiwan and was traveling to northern California to meet up with friends. Wei was just starting his work in San Jose and decided to go camping with friends in Lake Tahoe. It was destiny that they shared common friends who planned to get together in Lake Tahoe. Zi-Ling first met Wei in Tahoe. They described their first glances at each other as romance at first sight! Because they lived in two different countries, they only got to go on two dates. They endured a long distance relationship between those two dates but they knew they were destined for each other. In this session, we went to SF city hall, Palace of Fine Art and Baker beach. While shooting Wei and Zi-Ling’s engagement photo, I witnessed the loving glances they gave to one another, the jokes and secret laughs they shared with each other, and the childish playfulness they put on. Their love for each other was warm like the sun and made me smile and remember the stories of love in my own life. I hope that the love and happiness captured in their engagement photos will live on and be shared with their children and grandchildren and many generations to come. – Pei-Fen Juang
