“A Wondrous Engagement Session in China”
// This prewedding session was also FEATURED on The Bridestory Blog. Click here to see the featured post. //
“We are thinking.. China”, said Guido with a smile when I asked them where would they like to do their pre-wedding/engagement photoshoot.
The first time we introduced our Travel Diary session to Guido and Shierly, they accepted the idea right away. “A laidback photo session is what we need”, they said.
“…It’ll take probably around 9 days. Let’s explore Beijing and Shanghai.”
We couldn’t believe what we heard, we didn’t expect our first Travel Diary session would be 9 days long. But the thought of doing it with these two quickly made us excited.
Shierly used to study in Beijing and Shanghai, Guido used to visit her and spent time with her on holidays.
The trip for them was like walking down the memory lane. They brought us to places where they shared their beautiful memories together.
From strolling around the hip art district to the grand Summer Palace, until The Great Wall of China in Beijing.. From the tranquil Yu Garden until the modern waterfront of The Bund in Shanghai.
We lost count of how many places they brought us to.
And every place left us in awe.
We got to make new memories and experiences with them along the journey, it was like we read their history and became a part of their story.
We couldn’t forget how terrifying yet fun it was riding the open cable car above the wilderness at The Great Wall.
Or when they got their portrait caricature painting for a souvenir to bring home.
There are too many memories to count, and too many photos to share.
So we are sharing here only some parts of the whole trip.
It was simply our first, longest and grandest Travel Diary session we’ve ever done.
And hopefully a memorable one for them.
