Southampton Wedding Photography :: Dyana and Chris

couples Film portraits wedding

Maybe one of my favorite parts about photographing weddings, is being able to see a couple at their absolute best. It’s one of the happiest days of their lives, they’ve planned the entire day down to the last detail, and they both look absolutely gorgeous. They are surrounded by the people that they love most in the whole world, and those people are shining so much light onto them. You hear the stories of their lives, both as individuals and as a couple up to that point, and being there makes you feel like part of the story as well. You can see the goodness in both the bride and the groom reflected on the faces of their loved ones and you hear it in the speeches of their best friends. As an outsider, you learn of the ways these two people have impacted the lives of the guests, who are now there to stand with them on such an important day in their lives.

I clicked with these two from the first time we met. I always felt like we were on the same page in terms of what they wanted out of their engagement and wedding photography. I would write little suggestions and ideas of what I thought might work for them, and Dyana would write back with complete excitement and more of her own creative ideas to add onto it. Photographing their day felt easy, because we were all riding the same wave. I am beyond thrilled for these two and know that they share something amazing, and for one day, I got to be a part of it.

 

Best move I’ve ever seen performed by a groom.

Dyana and Chris added a film package to their wedding day coverage. Many of the shots above were shot on 35mm and 120mm film. There’s are a couple polaroid photos as well.

A special thanks to Xong Hang for helping me photograph Dyana and Chris’ wedding. Her input and help was invaluable to me that day. Many of the photos above are ones that she captured.

My last post of 2011. I'm in my hometown, Bellingham, right now doing some last minute organization for the wedding. There's no stress, I feel like that happened a couple weeks ago. We are just enjoying being on holiday, just the two of us, and getting ready for a week of fun with good friends and our families. There's lots to do, but we're getting it done and everything is coming together. With the new year brings lots of new things: New resolutions, new goals, new places, new marriage, new experiences and for this soon to be mama..... A new baby. This shoot ranks up there with being one of my favorites. I love how the images turned ...

Southampton Engagement Photography :: Diana and Sam
Pre wedding sessions. Awesome locations. Lovely couple. And funky architecture. Sam and Di are good friends who's wedding we celebrated the night before we left China to move here. A gorgeous Hong Kong wedding. But of course, we took some engagement photos a few months beforehand. This was a little mini-sesh, we got together early one morning and explored the area around our city, Xiamen. Since being in Xiamen, whenever we would walk down to the park near the waterfront, we would go under the overpass with all the vines crawling up it, in a very 'life after people' kind of way. I've always wanted to put a couple in a frame there. ...

Getting Married?
I am.  I'm really excited about it too.  I've found the perfect person who loves me in the exact way I need to be loved.  He's the only one who can make me happy, but he's also the only person to make me as angry as I've ever been.  That's kind of the beauty of love.  I've never laughed or cried harder as when I've been with Eliot.  We find that person who can conjure up those polar opposite emotions in you, and we give them the power to do so, only trusting them that they won't take advantage of it.  He's the only one who can intoxicate me overwhelmingly with how much I love him.  He's also the only person who could smash my heart to smither ...
