Brian & Mandy’s wedding was a collision between classic + Asian cuteness. Miya and I enjoyed how they brought the Asian, Hello Kitty pink theme into the classic manor which has definitely changed our perspective of Hycroft since our stylized shoot. It’s ironic but it was my first time capturing a wedding at Hycroft Manor and I have to say, I really loved capturing both weddings and pre weddings there! Their wedding day was short (5 hours in total) and filled to the brim with happiness. At times the pace of the day was very laid back, and at times it was insanely rushed.
To me, their photo session (both their engagement and wedding portraits) would be my most memorable ones up until now. I had about less than 15 minutes to capture their wedding portrait as things became really pressed for time at the end. Brian and Mandy coordinated so well and my mind was visualizing all possible angles and poses during the shoot. What usually takes me 5~10 min (think, compose, instruct, trial and error) only took me 30 seconds. I was in god mode/speed! I couldn’t have done it without Brian and Mandy’s perfect synchronization!
