Krystle and Fung had originally planned for a large wedding production in Portland for 2013, however when we first met they dropped a bombshell on me, a bombshell of awesome. They had decided to scale back to an intimate ceremony with only close friends and family. The wedding date had been bumped up to Sepetmber, and would take place in Las Vegas, where Fung’s family lives, but they would still love to have me as their photographer. My response was an enthusiastic ”Yes!” and indeed, being a part of their day was so much fun, a visual feast, a Vegas-sized buffet of near sensory overload.
Krystle was simply radiant, and Fung very dapper, with many a passerby on the strip offering compliments and congratulations. I am touched at how genuine these two are with each other, and it was wonderful catching those quiet moments of them in the limo as we drove from spot to spot.
The location highlight for the day for me was taking photos at The Neon Museum, where retired casino signs are gathered together. It is easily the most unique and dynamic place I have shot portraits in. It also offered a bit of breathing room from the crowds. Krystle and Fung were perfect in their reservation time for the place. The desert sun had lowered just enough and gave us beautiful, warm light.
I could go on and on. But I will close by simply saying congratulations to these two. Weddings are supposed to be fun, they are, at heart, celebrations, and these two realized its all about quality, not scale. It was a joy seeing them have so much fun!
