When my friend Therese (AKA Wit Wit) asked me to take photos of her family, I couldn't resist. They're leaving the DC area soon and I wanted to photograph them in their current home town of Alexandria. I had a great time photographing her, Jude, Max and baby Blaise in Old Town.
This past Saturday I had the opportunity to second shoot a wedding for the talented Akins Lawal. He is one of the best photographers I know and one of the reasons I started shooting weddings. The wedding was a traditional Chinese/Vietnamese wedding which included a Tea Ceremony. I made this photo below of the grandmother giving her blessing to the couple. While I was taking the photo, I felt the moment as I was watching this proud elder pass along her wisdom and blessings to the young couple.
I'll have more photos of this wedding in the near future.
