Get Inspired By The Elegant Details of This East Meets West Portrait Session

Chinese details and decorations can be stylish and elegant at the same time. You can also add a twist to these details by mixing it with modern or Western elements. To our advantage, today’s photo session shows us exactly how this can be done and we’re extremely inspired by all the photos of Angel Cheung. The muse of today’s photo session is dressed in modern qipaos from Yi-ming with chic, side-swept hair for one look, and an accented updo for the other–both were absolutely stunning ensembles! To complement her oriental look, a Chinese-inspired table display was set up, complete with blue and white china and a three-tier cake. We love how this photo session mixes both Chinese cultural details and modern elements and takes the whole look to another level–one that is refined and so sophisticated! If you see the rest of the photos, we’re sure you’ll love everything about today’s feature. Scroll on now for more.

You can always make your pre-wedding shoot coincide with a vacation, claims Martin Aesthetics. Book a trip somewhere beautiful or simply drive out of the city to a place where you can enjoy the beauty of nature. This will make shooting just like taking travel snaps in a scenic place you both love.

Every milestone as husband and wife should be celebrated. Think about it, you’re going through life’s challenges together, and every triumph–no matter how big or small–is a testament of your love and commitment to one another. Today’s couple, Baijing and James, decided to do just that during their fifth wedding anniversary and upon getting news of a soon-to-be new family member. With the help of stylist and planner AF Atelier, they put together a romantic renewal of vows at Island Shangri-la, Hong Kong. They adopted the theme ‘Old World Elegance’ and found that Island Shangri-la’s vintage interiors suited the look perfectly and delivered a stunning aura to the occasion–complete a chandelier, chinoiserie walls and paintings, and a wooden fireplace. Island Shangri-la was also the same place where the two got married, so naturally being there again made everything extra special. All the details came together beautifully so we’re all captivated by each of these photos by Mattie C. Lastly, so much love fills this celebration, it’s hard not to be overcome with joy. I will now leave you with a sweet quote from James’ vows: “There has not been a problem too big or too painful, knowing that you are always by my side. Life would be a meaningless path, were you not there to see it through with me. I promise to keep falling in love with you, with our children and our family for as long as I shall live.”
