Grace + Marc – {E-Session}

It’s been a pretty strange year so far.  Summer supposed to come but not really.  And temperature has been very inconsistent.  No biggy, we still have a fun couple in Grace and Marc! =)

Leanne + Jason

What was the most memorable moment of your day?

Leanne:  It is so difficult to choose just ONE memorable moment on our wedding day as there were so many!  If I had to choose one, I would say that walking down the aisle at the Christian ceremony and exchanging our vows was very memorable.  Everything was just so beautiful, calm and perfect to the point that it made me cry and I NEVER cry:P

Jason:  The Christian Ceremony it was perfect, and when we were all entering the hall for the first time. 

Any advice for future bride/grooms?

Leanne:  My number one advice for future brides & grooms are – do what makes both of you happy and don’t listen to anyone!  I thoroughly enjoyed the wedding planning process as I did everything that represented us as a couple and not take other people’s opinions into consideration.  It is very easy to get caught up with other people’s suggestions and opinions on what your wedding should be like but if you stick to guns and do what YOU want as a couple, you will end up very happy with the results.  That’s what happened with our wedding.  We did everything OUR way and everything we saw that day was simply us!

Jason: stay strong, be happy and take it in it a goes so fast.

Funniest memory from your wedding day?

Leanne:  My funniest and you could also say most annoying memory of my wedding day was that people kept stepping on my wedding dress and made me lose some of the buttons on the back of my dress!  My wedding dress had an extremely long train and even after putting it on a bustle, it was still long enough for people to keep stepping on it.  Each time a person did that, I would lose a button on the back of my dress.  It got to the point where I had no more buttons to put my train on a bustle so I ended up changing into another dress during the reception.  It didn’t end there.  Because my second dress had a little train as well, people did the same thing with my second dress!!!

Jason: all of the joke we had with the bridal party.

If you could do it all over, would you change anything?

Leanne:  If I had to do it all over again, I would totally eat more of the yummy food that was served at our reception.  We had very delicious h’orheurves at cocktail hours, a 10 course Chinese meal, an amazing variety of sweets including a candy bar that I could barely remember eating as I was just so caught up with the moment!  I remembered people warning me that you tend to forget to eat at your wedding as there is just so much commotion going but for me, I think I was just lazy to reapply my lipstick LOL

Jason: Nothing god gave us the day and I would not change a thing.

Annie + Anderson – {Married}

Weather had been a little unpredictable lately.  Well, that doesn’t mean it’s not fun at all!  In fact, we had one of the funnest wedding day, in terms of weather.  We started off with a very wet morning at Mandarin Golf and Country Club.

AnnieAnderson_20120908112039AnnieAnderson_20120908111832 AnnieAnderson_20120908115427

AnnieAnderson_20120908133414 AnnieAnderson_20120908140152AnnieAnderson_20120908133336

Yeah, the morning was wet.  And you know what the BEST thing about wet weather on a country club?  We have the WHOLE course for ourselves!! =)

AnnieAnderson_20120908141608AnnieAnderson_20120908142333 AnnieAnderson_20120908141051

One question I’ve got asked from my couples the most is what happened if it rains.  As a photographer, I’d always tell my couples not to worry.  And this is why. =)

AnnieAnderson_20120908142901AnnieAnderson_20120908143954AnnieAnderson_20120908144007

AnnieAnderson_20120908151832AnnieAnderson_20120908154126

Well, this is not my camera obviously.  But when I see something as cool as this, I just can’t stop myself from taking a picture.  In fact, this was NOT the only cool camera I saw in this wedding.  It was a camera showcase! (Note to Henry’s and Vistek, you’ve got to up your game!) =P

My definition of “Through The Lens”!

A little side story … we’re supposed to start our session at a particular location.  Our bride called and visited the management of that location even ONE day before our session, and everything was fine.  But you know what, the minute I arrived the location, !! Boom !!, the whole site became a construction zone!  So here we go, a little something to remember this day! =)
