I’m reminded again of how much of a privilege it is to be a wedding photographer. It’s such an honor to get to know someone and be a part of such an important part of their life. Xiao and I met on a wintery day in a lobby of a condo. We sat to discuss her wedding day and what services she would like. It was quite the unconventional way of meeting because I usually meet people at a coffee shop. Xiao struck me as someone who knows what she wants but isn’t going to be a control freak about everything. Sometimes one cannot explain why we have certain connections with certain people. I just know that I like Xiao! I think she’s awesome mon!
Xiao + Lawrence’s wedding was a big event. They had some of the best vendors (including myself! kekeke) I brought along Chris Luk + Alice Xue to shoot with me which was great! Always great to have extra pairs of hands to help on a big wedding like this. They also had Konrad the awesome cinematographer to do a Same Day Edit. Konrad also brought Mark Klassen, who is another fantastic cinematographer, to assist him. Xiao also had my favorite hair and makeup people (Rhia + Suzie). It’s really fun shooting a wedding where you know all the vendors! Lots of laughs and jokes.
Besides the awesome vendor team I was super duper excited to shoot in the Crystal Ballroom at the King Edward Hotel in Toronto. The hotel allowed us only 15mins to shoot up there so I was a little nervous about getting all the shots I wanted. All turned out well though! Totally happy with the results.
