Words cannot express the beauty of this shoot for us. Let me explain. This quiet couple walked up to our booth at the Plano Bridal show last summer. They introduced themselves to us and said we’ve walked the entire floor and we would like to speak with you. I said, of course. Ralph and Angeline explained to me that they were actually getting married in Singapore and they were needing “Wedding Portraits” in the United States. Naturally, I immediately asked them about their vision and what they wanted in a “Wedding portrait shoot”. Mind you, Lexie and I never get more than 30 minutes with a couple (if that) alone at a wedding. In fact, our clients know that we have this in our contract that we need at least 30 minutes or more with our bride/groom alone during the wedding day. What a dream to have an entire SHOOT. So, after many calls, recommending stylists, etc…we set a date. We set a location. This couple wanted a splash of Singapore in their pictures, the beauty of the sun, their love and of course gorgeous portraiture. So, the Botanic Gardens fit perfectly. We cannot even begin to say how much we adored this day and this couple. We got the sweetest message from the bride 3 months later (they moved to Singapore) and told us how much they loved their pictures. It made our day!. For those of you whom know me on my personal facebook…you know that I tend to label my pictures. Therefore, I’ve decided to get a little more personal in the year 2014 on my business blog. I typically stay all business on this blog. (I really do..) But, here goes. I call these pictures below: “Bride Time”.
