Today, I’m finally sharing the last of my 2018 weddings, featuring Kevin & May (whose engagement I shot at Joshua Tree and Laguna Beach last spring). The two are troopers, driving all the way from LA to tie the knot here in Charlotte, NC. Having had such a great experience with them during the engagement session, I couldn’t wait for the wedding.
Their big day started bright and early at 6 am to accommodate the traditional Chinese tea ceremony while the second part of the celebration took place at the Magnolia Room in SC. This wasn’t my first wedding at The Magnolia Room, but it’s different each time – and is always a joy to shoot. The challenge I often have with cultural weddings is that there are so many activities to cover, which doesn’t give me a whole lot of room for bridal party and group photos. However, we surprisingly squeezed every possible photo session into this one day. Looking back, I can still feel the excitement and emotions – and I’m so honored to have been the one to capture it all. Can’t wait to share more this year!
