Pre-wedding K&N

Pre-wedding sessions are photo sessions taken prior to the wedding, similar to the idea of engagement-session, the only difference is, the couple get to 'choose' to wear her wedding gown and he gets to wear his tux! This is 'the norm' for Vietnamese wedding couples especially since they ultimately will choose from the session a few pictures to enlarge and for keep. Plus, I'm sure the bride wants to make the most use out of her white gown since on the day of the wedding, she gets to wear a Vietnamese traditional dress Ao Dai as well. So there you have it, a little background of what pre-wedding sessions are.

So, back to K&N. I'm at the beginning of editing the pre-wedding session we had with Timmy and Nhi over the weekend, and wow, must I tell you, if you find me giggling through the pictures while editing, you must know I had a blast. When booking them, we know that we're in for big time shooting. The Bride- Nhi had warned us that as long as we have the energy to be behind the lens, she's got the strength to be in front of them! And that was proven on the day when we went to shoot in DC! They had chosen the landmark where they fell in love, the capital of the US! So, off we went! We got there around 11am and after 3 hours of shooting, the bride didn't seem to look tired at all!! They were just 'warming' up!! So, guess what, we roamed the streets of DC the whole DAY!! While it was cloudy, windy, felt like it would pour any second, but we took the most out of what mother nature had to offer. It really did go by fast because when we're done with the session and in the car to grab something for dinner, we asked each other what time it was and couldn't believe it was 5:30pm! This was around the time the rain shower started, so we got lucked out!

I had fun being behind the lens too and will share what I had captured!
Of course, I always have a lot to talk about, but enough said, I wanted to share with you SOME of what I had picked out from our session.

Check out this awesome energy:

And last but def. not least, my captures:

I'm still working on more pictures, so expect something in the next few days!!

But there is more to a fine photograph than information. We are also seeking to present an image that arouses the curiosity of the viewer or that, best of all, provokes the viewer to think--to ask a question or simply to gaze in thoughtful wonder. We know that photographs inform people. We also know that photographs move people. The photograph that does both is the one we want to see and make. It is the kind of picture that makes you want to pick up your own camera again and go to work. - Sam Abell, Seeing and Shooting Straight by Sam Abell
