Hana is such a great wedding photographer - you can tell she is so passionate about what she does and wants to make every photo perfect for you! She is incredibly professional and fun to work with. We recently finished up our engagement shoot with her and she made it so enjoyable for my fiance and I, who are NOT photo people. We naturally get shy and awkward in front of the camera as it is, imagine having to pose like models making googly eyes at each other! Since Hana is so bubbly and entertaining, your engagement shoot will go by so fast - she has great ideas for poses and a keen eye for detail! She is reasonably priced too!
Her style is modern and photojournalistic, with muted tones and incredible angles - she has a knack for capturing those unexpected moments - a passing glance or unexpected laugh... I know my photos will turn out gorgeous because I am constantly amazed at the photos she continues to churn up. I can't wait to see what she comes up with for my wedding!

Mon Amie is a pretty big bridal store. They have tons of selections, but this also means this place can get very crowded - especially on Saturdays! They have tons of staff on hand to help you... when I got there I signed in and they gave me a beeper and told me someone would be with me shortly. In less than 5 minutes, they were ready for me. I was asked my budget and directed to the sections that had dresses within my range. I picked out and tried on a bunch but none that I loved. The entire store seems to be in a frenzy and I felt rushed here.
The employee who helped me was nice enough, but all in all kind of a draining experience. I later went to La Soie in Tustin and found my beautiful wedding dress there.

I loved La Soie! I couldn't have asked for a better experience. There are some bridal stores in the OC that are packed or have snooty employees, but not here. I was so surprised by the unassuming and warm nature of the people here. They allowed me to browse freely without being in my face the whole time, and helped pick out some beautiful dresses once I told them what I was looking for. I fell in love immediately with the first dress I tried on. I tried on a few other beautiful pieces as well. The lady who helped me didn't mind that I wanted to be in the dressing room by myself and told me to let her know whenever I needed help. This boutique store is smaller than a place like Mon Amie, but I thought their selections were prettier and this place is definitely much more organized! Easy to find what you're looking for and get assistance when you need it. Highly recommended!!
