Palm Springs Bright Fun Wedding by Steven Wayne Photography

Amanda & Ziyi’s beautiful forever wedding!

Choosing Wedding Day Colors

It didn’t surprise us that Amanda and Ziyi chose our favorite color for their wedding theme, yellow! There wedding was just as the color expresses, alive, vibrant and fun!

Opposites Attract – Makes Perfect

When you put together an Engineer and an Artist, you get magic! You will be able to see in their eyes alone the love and joy they share together. There is a genuine love and respect and sense of honor for each other that made this wedding more than a joy for us. Not to mention we felt like we were just at a warm family reunion when we arrived.  Having been part of two of Amanda’s cousins, Shastin and Jason’s weddings, it felt like a giant love bubble all day.

Playful & Venues = Great Images

Amanda is a natural model and so expressive and fun. Ziyi is a stellar himself, what a kind spirited person, it was an honor to serve them both and capture these fun moments! We think you will enjoy some of these highlights from their day! They chose to get ready at this very hip downtown Palm Springs venue called The Wesley. It was dripping with fabulous artistic charm! Every room was filled with an artist touch, no wonder Amanda loved it! We did too!! Perfect fit for her Wedding colors. Because they are so creatively dramatically and playful, we knew incorporating the bikes on site were going to be a hit! Note to self, never take the brides pink bike away from her!  Talk about a fun bridal party…be sure to watch the slideshow below of more of the fun moments with this group!

Ziyi and Amanda chose the Indian Canyon’s Golf Club Resort for their wedding. Amanda’s Aunt Gina transformed the room into the most beautiful of venues, it was amazing! Amanda has a love for photographs and added a memory table. We found this delightful, full of images of those they love. We loved that they incorporated their history together, book after book, album after album of the lives they have shared. WE love it!!!

We are sure you are going to enjoy these moments along with the slideshow below!

Palm Springs Engagement Photos – Amanda & Ziyi

You never know when love will come, but when it does there is no mistaking it!  That’s how it was with these two! Amanda and Ziyi had the most adorable chemistry together, they fit like hand in glove. We met them a several years back at their cousin’s wedding, fast forward to last year and there we were again capturing the moments at another cousins Wedding! Love it in the air and we are so thankful they thought of us to be part of their wedding journey! Amanda is creative and fun, stunning and playful. We had such a great time capturing the essence of who she is, we are just in love with some of these images. Ziyi is quiet and kind and charming and crazy in love with Amanda! We LOVE that!

They chose downtown Palm Springs as the back drop for their romance photos. Wanting to incorporate some fun and art and romance! We think you will agree these are some fun images, romantic, timeless and whimsical!

Their spring wedding is going to be in Palm Springs as well. To keep with the modern and artistic style Amanda loves, they are getting ready at a Boutique hotel called The Wesley.  We look forward to capturing more fun images! We are sure this post might be a record of images it was so hard to select just a few. We started with their love for games and even learned about a few ourselves. Games can be a romantic way to spend an evening together! We then wandered on through some streets in Palm Springs, CA playfully capturing some of the architecture and vibe of the city!

Amanda & Ziyi loved the windmills in Palm Springs too!  It reminds many of our town and it’s always a fun place to play footsies in the sand too!


We think you would enjoy some of these previews from their engagement photo shoot!

The boys went off to take some photos so Amanda and me had fun in these fabulous yellow flowers! I couldn’t just pick one favorite! We loved them all!!! (And this is only a few!)

Okay…… this one say’s MODEL all over it!!! Those eyes!


Cards in the sand….Love Letter….Picnic blanket…sun-kissed by sunset….ROMANTIC!

This was a crazy great ART Alley and we were so blessed to be able to go in and capture a few images!

Now who wants to do an engagement photo shoot without a little playful fun!!! When Amanda and Ziyi mentioned that they brought their animal pajamas we were totally excited. How fun would it be to play with a little hunt, Amanda was perfect for the part! We noticed Ziyi didn’t try to run away from this Tiger!

Turns out Love won out!!!

This happen to be one of my favorite photo’s so we just had to include it!
