Hi There!

I’m Cherlyn (rhymes with Berlin). So nice to meet you! If we met in person - I would probably hug you!

I’m an introvert-extrovert and tend to ramble and talk too much when I get nervous. In emails - I tend to use exclamation points a lot!! I like to think that I see things differently and find magic in what others may think ordinary. I aim to not just photograph your wedding day as it looks but most importantly how it all felt- so that your images, when you receive them - will transport you back to one of your best day ever!


+ Want to know more random things about me?

  • I met my husband online- on craigslist! (And yes, you can ask me all about it when we meet)
  • I am not a morning person but I have some pretty cute alarm clocks named Jackson & Raima who think otherwise.
  • I love coffee.
  • I'm a whiskey girl
  • I love love tacos (and have a tattoo of one on my arm) & sushi (its next up as a tattoo too)!

    + If you really want to be nosy

    I was born in the Philippines, and came to the U.S. when I was 4 and half years old. (Halves are really important.) I grew up all over the Los Angeles area, went to college at UC Santa Cruz and lived in San Francisco for a decade before calling Oakland home. We do travel to Los Angeles a lot. Like, a lot a lot. (Yes, I grew up in the valley.) I drink way too many La Croix instead of water, and my cocktail of choice is a good old fashioned. I have an affinity for tattoos because just like photographs, they tell a story (and yes, I do have a few). I love sushi & tacos trucks. And most importantly - I never take myself too seriously and happen to tell terrible corny jokes (I get that from my mom - whom I miss so much). Ok, enough about me, what about you? What's your story, morning glory? I'd love to hear all about you!
