wedding of irene and alexis (day one) 4

So busy in last two months … … I tried to update the blog with every wedding and e-sessions I had, but I found it very difficult with the busy schedule … … Other than shooting, I spend most of the time on retouching works and hope to finish the work on time for each client.

Just a few updates:

1) because of the busy schedule, I can’t meet any new client before Dec, I am giving priority to my existing client first

2) Shulin is growing very fast, I even found that she can be looked and behaved a little different  if I didn’t see her much after having2-3 days’ shooting. I have already scheduled a photo session with Claudia (playground photography) end of Nov to take photo of Shulin and me. So looking forward to it.

3) there are so many interesting shootings in last few weeks, a lot of new concept ‘re tried. I also had a change to work with another award winning wedding photographer from US, it ‘was so inspiring to see him working in our local Chinese wedding. Stay tuned, more update on blog very soon.

OK, back to the wedding last Sunday – Irene and Alexis. They had a two-day wedding – and we only had the ceremony on day one, so we had plenty of time taking portrait of them. Irene is a piano teacher, in fact, I met her in some weddings before in which she played piano in the reception. Alexis is a very busy IT person, always flying around the world, I only had chance to meet him 1 week before the wedding.

look forward to their wedding (day two) on coming Friday.
