Gahhhh...It's 2017!

Ok, so I'm extremely late on the New Years stuff but dam, it's literally 2017 already.

One thing for sure, I'm in the middle of tax season and the wedding is inching closer. So much to do but now is not the time to do it. My fiance and I also booked a pre-wedding photoshoot in Hong Kong come April but that'll be in another post - I'd like to dedicate a whole post to it.

One thing that's different since the last year is that I changed jobs. I'm still with the same company but I decided to move to a different position which calls for less work but same pay - oh, and I get an office which is pretty sweet. It'll be different but I think I'll be a lot happier doing this than coming into work 6 times a week and working from like 9am to 11pm. To reflect back, I'm pretty proud of myself that I voiced what I want. Definitely wasn't easy but nothing comes on a gold plate.

Now that I don't work late nights and long weekends anymore, I'd like to blog more often. Maybe even pick up on vlog? Who knows.

My fiance and I are going out this Saturday to celebrate our 10th year of dating. To a place that is quite dear to us, Park Avenue. We haven't gone since they moved to a new location, but we do miss it. Looking forward to a well deserved peaceful evening with the husband-to-be.

Wedding: Officially One Year Away

Today mark exactly 365 days until our wedding reception.

I think we're definitely in a pretty good shape since we got a lot done already. So far, the process has been quite the experience. I know there's going to be a lot more bumps in the road as we approach the date. But as of now, I'm going to take it easy for a bit.

Next year today, will be the day.

Wedding: Photographer

To be completely honest.

Finding a photographer (actually it's more like choosing) for our wedding was simple. I already had a photographer in mind for the longest time - I was just waiting for that moment - if you know what I mean.

I discussed my choice with the fiancé and luckily, it didn't take much to convince him. We agreed they were definitely one of a kind and that we would love to have them photograph our special day.

The process was easy. I reached out to them and we exchanged emails back and forth. We even facetime and met with each other. The reason being, they were located in Houston, Texas. They were very up-beat and you can feel the passion and love that they had for what they love to do.

So a little background of why I chose Tee Tran Photography.
When I was a very young little girl, my dad would buy VHS tapes and DVDs of Paris By Night. Paris by Night encompasses a lot of different Vietnamese songs and singers. I grew up watching and listening to it and pretty much fell in love with a singer. Ok, not totally in love but more like I loved her songs, I loved her singing, I loved her performance and energy. Each time my dad buys a PBN, I ask, is she in there? I would learn her songs and sing-a-long quite a lot.
Fast forward to my high school and college years, I found that she was no longer going to perform due to some medical complications. I then stopped watching PBN. Lucky for me and her fans, she was active on social media and soon enough, married Tee Tran.

Never had I thought I would work with Bao Han. The person that I idolized when I was young. For me, this definitely meant a lot which is why I think my fiancé went with the flow.

But that's besides the point, she's very fashionable and creates outfits that are super pretty out of affordable pieces that she finds. Her husband, Tee Tran's photography skills are quite different than your average. The angle, the skills, the directing that they both encompass are quite phenomenal...not to mention, they're quite goofy.

My fiancé and I are both looking forward to this experience and are totally psyched for them to capture the moments we have.
