I look forward to every wedding I'm lucky enough to shoot but, I'll be honest, sometimesI encounter a bride and groom or a wedding day that gives just a little extra boost to my creative side as a photographer.
Most times this happens whenI know I'm going to be experiencing something new and that was the case back in August as Cynthia and Ao's beautiful summer wedding at Lake Pearl in Wrentham served as my introduction into Chinese-American wedding culture.
Now, anyone who has followed along with my wedding photography knows I LOVE being exposed to the many different traditions and customs shown at the weddings of couples of different ethnicities than my own but Cynthia and Ao's was something even more special.
Not only was it one of the most beautiful days of the summer, it was at one of my all-time favorite venues as Lake Pearl is a breathtaking place to photograph a wedding.
But that's not all I enjoyed about this wedding day. No, this one was special for a whole host of reasons, including one of my silliest moments as a wedding photographer, one of the best sunsets I've ever seen and a truly stunning first dance I'll remember for a long time.
Yes, folks. I knew Cynthia and Ao's big day would be one for the portfolio but not even the most optimistic side of me knew how amazing it would go. It truly was one of the most beautiful shoots I've had and produced photos I know I'll love just as much as the bride and groom.
So, if you'd like to see one of my marquee weddings of 2017, and a wedding I know I'll be thinking about a lot when it comes time to update my portfolio at the end of the year, check out Cynthia and Ao's wedding day by clicking here. As always, thanks for checking out the blog and be sure to let me know what you think!
