Johann Chau & Mina Tse – A Wedding in Chicago

Yeah finally I got my spare time for this entry after I missed my flight from Chicago to San Francisco. I’m writing this quickly as I have to do anotherΒ  location scouting for tomorrow’s pre-wedding photoshoot between Kurt & Melissa. I had so much fun working with Johann & Mina despite of Johann’s VERY VERY strict parents,Β  aunties that love to intervene my shooting (but they are very friendly) AND flamboyant brothers. Ahim and I had so much good time photographing different culture from the other side of the world. Well, it wasn’t so different as compared to any other western and oriental wedding I have done so far…but it’s totally a new set of experience there.

Especially when we have to deal with the extreme weather in the most well known WINDY CITY, Chicago. Practically we shoot mostly below zero celcius for the outdoor portraiture. The only drive we have is only by telling ourselves “We have come this far and cold can NEVER be an excuses for us not to get the shots that we want”

Thank God that we finally did it. It just an attitude to get good pictures. And it’s about “you’ to challenge to be a better “you”. We were contracted to shoot for only 8 hours as per agreed. But I clocked-in more than 18 hours shooting altogether and I don’t complain about it…in fact…I’m so much happier if I have longer time. Longer time means more photographic opportunities to explore.

If you are passionate about photography, then you will know what am I talking about. If you do photography because of money…you will never understand that drive πŸ˜‰
