There were too many amazing photos taken at this wedding! Yih-Chun has photographed a couple weddings himself, and I was honored that he would have me photograph his own special day! With photography being a high priority, they scheduled more than a couple hours for wedding photos- and I made sure to take advantage of it! I’ve only posted about 30 images here on the blog, you can see more at my facebook page (feel free to ‘friend’ me if you want to see the 50+ images posted there)

Yih-Chun & Evelyn both attend the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign…also my alma mater (Go Illini!). I also lived down there for four years after graduating, and I like to say that I know Champaign-Urbana pretty well. BUT I really wanted something special for their wedding photos and I stumbled upon this awesome location-
Evelyn looked stunning in her wedding dress.
He couldn’t stop smiling whenever he looked at her-
Being creative with the environment
I love this detail shot of her bouquet of lilies.
I love, love, love this photo of the two of them. There was so much chemistry between the two of them, and I think this photo captures that connection-
We also spent some time in the Japanese garden and Japan house grabbing some photos.
A park in Urbana…
I have spent so much time at TCBC through the years, I could literally walk through this place with my eyes closed. =) I was blessed to photograph a wedding here-
I LOVE this moment right before the first kiss- it happened so fast, but we got it! Look at her playful face!
The iHotel in Champaign, IL. I love this venue, full of amazing architecture and art. I also appreciated Evelyn’s choice on lighting. Those purple lights really add so much to a venue.
The wedding cake
Grabbed this photo of the handsome groom
Just look at all the expressions during this toast- makes me smile everytime
We had to grab some more photos at the iHotel before I left-
Another one of my favorite photos from the day-
Yih-Chun & Evelyn: Thanks for planning so much time for photography! I think it was worth it! =) And as wedding photographers yourselves, thank you for trusting and investing so much into having me as your wedding photographer!
