I relish looking back on the day I captured this summer wedding inspiration in the historic city of Hague. My friend José and I decided to create a fine art editorial and capture it using traditional analog film. With help from some of our industry colleagues, several rolls of Fuji Pro 400H, and our trusty medium format cameras, we spent a few hours having fun at Park Clingendael. I’m so glad it turned out to be a success.
What I love most about this wedding editorial wasn’t just what we achieved in the final images. We intentionally built a wedding team with a nod of respect to our Asian heritage and enjoyed a fine summer day with wonderful and talented friends. Brigitta, our hair and make-up artist is Indonesian and is a well-respected figure in the Dutch fashion industry. Juliet, our model has Japanese roots and also happens to be a painter/artist. José is a film photographer like me. Her parents are from Hong Kong. And of course, I’m from the sunny islands of the Philippines. While our florist is Dutch and non-Asian, we considered her a symbol of the connection between Asians and non-Asians alike. I couldn’t be happier with the results of this summer wedding inspiration. A creative melting pot of talents and cultures into one beautiful work of art.
