Before I even had the chance to blog about some locations I would like to photograph around New York, I was invited to photograph Steven and Christine’s wedding at one of the coolest locations in Queens. In the backyard of my home borough is this nifty, open spot where cows graze and stretches of crops lend themselves to some epic scenery.
Once again, I was witness to a traditional garb and ceremony, this time Korean. This has definitely been one of the great perks of photography – to experience all sorts of cultures and their wedding practices.
Venue – Queens County Farm Museum
This was my first overseas wedding, and my first in China. A warm thanks to Beethoven and Vivian for inviting me to their wedding.
Being among good friends, and making new ones as well, it was a different experience altogether, and a positive one at that. We made it through the heat and, with the guys from the US, jet lag. After the reception, we all took a nap (pretty much passed out) on the way back to the hotel. Good times, indeed!
They are my friends and yes, my friend’s name really is Vivian! Beethoven is a longtime friend of mine and it’s an honor to be their photographer. As a matter of fact, they’ve been my willing photo subjects in the past and I’m happy they haven’t made any excuses or run the other way yet. Thank you, guys!
The blue tones they chose to wear stood out nicely against the pretty pink flowers and the predominantly green backdrop. It was on a rainy day but we rocked it.
