in part 1 of this series, we saw joe and youngshin at the salon getting ready for their big event. in part 2 of this three-part series, i present the bride in all her glory: her portraits. aside from the obvious moments (the first kiss, the exchanging of the rings, the cake cutting, the bouquet toss, etc), this is the most important photo-taking of the day.
let's be honest, this is the bride's big day. brides are the ones who fantasize about this day from moment they can pronounce the word "wedding" (grooms usually fantasize about being GI Joes until the words "i do" fumble out of their mouths on their wedding day). and for 99.999% of women, this is the only day of their adult lives that they are truly The Princess in their fairytale.
that being the case (and being behind the 8-ball with time running out until showtime), i assigned my trusted second shooter, tien wang of tien wang photography, the task of snapping the groom's portraits. not that i take the groom's portraits any less seriously, but i know that the bride is the star, and i needed to attend to my star's portraits personally.
with the prep work from part 1 culminating in the vision you see here, i present part 2: the bridal portraits.
i was digging the veil flowing in the breeze against the cool blue sky.
this is one of my faves. youngshin was absolutely radiant.
they are such a lovely couple, wouldn't you agree?
despite his disheveled look beforehand, this young man was eventually introduced to a comb and participated in the ceremony.
the groomsmen + youngshin's brother looking quite dap before…
…the main event. tune in soon for the conclusion to youngshin's fairytale day.
you are … a star …
