Friday night @ #billsplace in #Harlem. 

One of my all time favorite #jazz #singers is *the* #billieholiday who happened to be discovered right here, in this #speakeasy around the corner from my home! Thank you @legalmisssunshine for the invite! Such an epic night.

Tonight was one of those serendipitous #nyc nights. Friends from #california came to visit and were eager to visit #billsplace, a #harlem #speakeasy. 

I’ve lived in Harlem 11 years and didn’t know about this little gem, around the corner from my house!! Thank you to @legalmisssunshine and Ken for nudging me to go! I can’t wait to photograph there. #ilenetheharmite #uptown #jazz #byob #nycnights #newyorkcity #manhattan #harlemnights  (at Bill’s Place)

'Yo' in #vietnamese means 'cheers' in English.

Ngoc and Jamie’s #sanfrancisco #wedding was filled with endless toasts to #love and to the #newlyweds where ‘yo!’ echoed through the hills of #bernalheights!

A little work #selfie in the beautiful #artdeco building I am staying in. The hairdo makes me look super Asian, right? 

I met yesterday’s groom when he was giving me a blowout in #nyc 5 years ago.  So in that vain, I went straight for him (no pun intended!). The grooms moved to #sanfrancisco 3 years ago but it was important for them to hire someone who knew them way back when! I was so moved by their intimate #bernalheights #wedding yesterday.
