The definition of soulmate is “a person with whom one has a feeling of deep or natural affinity, similarity, love, intimacy, sexuality, spirituality, or compatibility” (I googled soulmate and found this in wikipedia – where else would you find important information in 2011???) So I decided to call my engagement sessions “Soulmates Sessions”, as it aptly describes the couples who come to me for their engagement/pre-wedding photos.
And my latest couple fit right into this category. Bang and Chau are tying the knot in January and I am so excited to share these pictures with you. They had me laughing my pants off photographing them. They even brought their own props; a bouquet similar to the one Chau will have on her wedding day and an old camera. Chau was dressed in a beautiful lace dress. A lady who was sitting outside the church watching us commented that this was a lovely quiet wedding. Yes, she actually thought Bang and Chau were getting married there and then. Then Chau changed into a more casual frock and we continued on around the beautiful leafy streets of Malvern East. Just perfect.
Bang and Chau – thank you for inviting me to share your soulmateness. I hope your parents enjoy these too, all the way from Vietnam.
