Billings Estate and Yangtze Wedding : Tracy + Yipsing

Tracy and Yipsing chose a glorious, sunny September day for their Billings Estate and Yangtze Wedding.  This wedding day was wall-to-wall hustle and activity, from the 2 Chinese tea ceremonies, to the customary “door games”, a gorgeous ceremony at Billings Estate Museum, and finishing with an incredible reception at the Yangtze Restaurant.

One of my biggest focuses on any wedding day is being able to anticipate, then capture moments, expressions, reactions etc.  I feared before this wedding that this it might be quite a bit more challenging when 95% of the interactions are in a language I don’t understand.   It’s hard to know what is going to happen when you don’t know what anybody is saying!  Thankfully, Tracy & Sing’s wedding day was full of amazing moments, tons of emotion, and it really wasn’t too difficult after all.

Tracy and Sing share an amazing love for each other, as well as for their friends and family…this was evident throughout the day.  I had an absolute blast, and, just like their engagement shoot, they were incredibly comfortable and natural in front of the camera.  I really love a lot of the photos we made together.

Congratulations Tracy & Sing!
