The night before their wedding was my first meeting with Sung Ming and his wife Lu Li at the 39th floor of Marina Bay Sands Hotel. Based in Shanghai, Sung Ming is a hearty man with generous laughter while Lu Li a gorgeous and amicable lady – both of whom I felt more like friends than clients in brief moments.
An avid photographer himself, Sung Ming is the only groom I have encountered so far who got himself busy with camera during the bridal makeup session, with his friend, David Phan. I am also very grateful and touched by the fact that Sung Ming contacted me after he has returned to Shanghai just days after the wedding to send me the photos. We have actually gone through a Skype session where he showed me his wedding pictures and let me to select the ones I would like to.
I shall not neglect the bride either. As Lu Li has chosen two very elegant cheongsams for morning and evening session, I gave her a neat classic bun for hair on both occasions, with variations of flower and crystal hair accessories. While the morning makeup tends to be more natural, the evening look with slight winged liner fuchsia red lips created a more stylish yet oriental look.
The following pictures are of course courtesy of Sung Ming and his friend David.
Last but not least, my heartfelt congratulations to Sung Ming and Lu Li!
