Chinese Engagement Photos Ottawa Arboretum
Ottawa Engagement Photographer
I love Asia and when I say that, what I mean is that I REALLY LOVE Asia. My Chinese friends say I’m a wannabe Asian. I think they’re right. I mean, I’ve wanted to visit China and walk along the Great Wall of China since I was a kid. (By the way, that was checked off the list in 2005). I lived in Asia for a year and a half (South Korea and Japan). Also, I’ve traveled around Asia and Southeast Asia (Mongolia, China, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos). The theme for my own wedding was Chinese. My bridesmaids wore Chinese dresses. Likewise, my going away outfit was a traditional red Choeongsam. It was tailor made in Beijing.
Liking all things Asian, brings me to write about this great Chinese couple. I knew that it was going to be a good match when the bride wrote in her initial e-mail, “Seems like I’ve found a kindred spirit who loves Pinterest and has a passion for travel and photography.” At our first meeting, we talked about our own experiences in Mongolia. Now really, it’s not every day that I find another person whom I can talk about mutual Mongolian experiences with, ya know?
I shot their engagement photos at several spots in Ottawa. We shot at the Ottawa Arboretum, Byward Market and Major’s Hill Park. I was SO excited when I found out that Betty-Ann was going to wear her red Chinese dress for the engagement photo session. I have wanted to do a photo session like this for a long time. And the cherry on top was that it worked out perfectly that we did the engagement photos during the Ottawa tulip festival, so that we got the gorgeous spring blossoms, as well as the tulips.
The e-session went very well. Eric and Betty-Ann rocked it and I got some amazing shots. I hope you’ll enjoy the photos as much as I do. You can also view their wedding photos at Ferme Mariposa Farm.
