Sonia & Khiem’s Stunning Chinese Wedding

I’m sure you’re all aware that there has been a lot of rain this Summer! It seems like every other weekend has had rain. For some, this has been a bit of a negative when it comes to wedding photography, but for us, we love the challenge and a chance to make use of the amazing window light that always happens during inclement weather. Shooting through the rain can look amazing if the bride and groom are brave and don’t mind a bit of wedding day rain.

We started out the photo shoot at an old school house in Mississauga, which made for incredible pictures. Sonia looked incredible and Khiem wasn’t too shabby either 😉 I really love the shots Charlotte and I took through the rain from across the driveway. Two of the groomsmen were good enough to hold big golf umbrellas over us. You can see Charlotte was getting the wide angle image which I was shooting tight with the 70-200mm lens.

You may remember Sonia and Khiem’s Engagement Photos in High Park.. we had a great time together, wandering through the park, stopping here and there to take some more pictures. We had a great time and one shot in particular that Charlotte came up with, but had me execute (because it involved climbing up into a cherry tree!) was the image they chose for the canvas that was on display at their reception… Isn’t it an awesome shot?

We arrived at the wedding & reception venue in Markham, and proceeded with the family photos. I had to share this shot with you all… isn’t this just the cutest little girl on the planet?!!

Their ceremony was wonderful. Full of fun, lighthearted laughter and lots of love.

Sonia and Khiem’s entrance was nothing short of hilarious… their entire wedding party ran through a long corridor of people giving high fives.. then when the bride and groom made their entrance, Khiem broke out the phantom camera and snapped away at his beautiful bride with the wedding party!

Sonia and Khiem are environmentally aware and chose to have locally grown flowers for their event, as well as offsetting the carbon emissions from their wedding by sponsoring the event with bullfrog power… incidentally, if you’d like to bullfrog your home, you can save $25 by using our promo code DAVE5412.
