Today we’re so excited to finally show you a sneak peek of our magzine cover shoot! It’s called “Daughters of Poseidon”, but it’s not your typical beach wedding. A few of these images are in the magazine but most of them are didn’t-make-it-into-the-layout-but-way-too-beautiful-to-never-be-seen shots. We just HAD to share more than we could print.
Joy is actually at the press overseeing the printing as I type this! If you pre-ordered a copy it will be shipped within the week. If you haven’t bought a copy yet, you can buy your copy here. You can see even more that didn’t make the cut by clicking on the gallery link at the bottom of the post. And, stay tuned because we will be sharing more from this shoot all week long!

It's customary for Chinese couples to have their wedding photos taken in advance of the wedding, leaving them plenty of time on their wedding days to enjoy the company of their guests and really revel in their celebrations. Today's couple, Janes and Osson, decided to fall suit with this tradition, taking their elegant pre-wedding photos in California (their wedding recently took place in Hong Kong!).
