So my first “Destination Wedding” assignment went AMAZINGLY! I was welcomed warmly by Shelby and her now husband Stephen. Shelby and I were friends as teenagers and lost touch when she moved to China. (Facebook and myspace weren’t popular at the time so it was a little harder to keep in touch although I wish I would have tried harder!!) The flight was about 16 hours!!! Luckily I had gotten a SUPER comfy neck pillow! I was a little scared that I wouldn’t get my Chinese Visa and passport back in time to be able to go. But it all came in JUST in time! (Now one less thing to worry about for my next destination assignment Before the wedding I had the chance to go to “The GREAT WAll” with Stephen and his family. It was GREAT time getting to know his Mom and Dad and sharing stories with Stephen. I also had the opportunity to see Stephen’s AMAZING artwork which I will share with you after this blog post. Then came the one of the sweetest and memorable weddings I have shot (I guess it being a friend made it that much more special). It was soooo precious I got a shot of Shelby with tears POURING down her face (it was all out of joy and excitement). Then after the wedding we went to Tiananmen Square. While there we photographed thier after shots at the GORGEOUS Capital M in Beijing. I will share those at the end. I hope you enjoy the pics as much as I enjoyed taking them . Best wishes Shelby and Stephen!! See you in December for your 80′s wedding!!
More to come!!!!
