    Just Strolling Through Shanghai With an Adorable Alpaca

    Living and working in a hip city like Shanghai with your fiancé is a special experience. You have a bank of memories from building this chapter of your lives together, away from all that is familiar, and you want to remember how you’ve made this place home. Shanghai, with its iconic streets, memorable frames of skyscrapers, and eclectic mix of Chinese-European residences, all make for a meaningful engagement album that encapsulates this Malaysian couple’s life in this season. We love their carefree spirit in these images, and check out that adorable alpaca curiously eyeing its surroundings. It’s an unusual addition to an engagement album but it’s so docile, you can’t…

    Glamorous High Fashion Bridal Portraits in Shanghai

    Shanghai never disappoints, with its rich history and twinkling lights in stark contrast with the skyscrapers and modern infrastructure. Yet the allure of old China remains when you explore its sidewalks and pavements, and these photos are proof. We love the bride’s jaw-dropping outfits and dramatic makeup, the hustle and bustle of the streets, and especially that rooftop shot overlooking the Shanghai skyline! Many thanks to Oly Ruiz of Metrophoto for these shots, which, by the way, were only the first stop for the couple in a series of locations across China. Don’t miss part 2 of their bridal portraits, which were taken in Lijiang and Shangri-La.

    The Shanghainese Soiree

    Having a mutual affection for Shanghai, it made sense that this couple would tell their wedding story through this city, starting with their bridal portraits. From the bride’s glamorous silver cheongsam with a fur shrug and short modern cheongsam to the groom’s traditional Chinese suit featuring Mandarin collars and Western-style suits, the couple certainly mixed it up with equal amounts of classic and modern. Many thanks to Chester Kher Creations for this creative set of bridal portraits! LIZ & WAI FONG {China} Photography by Chester Kher Creations / Location Shanghai

    A Day In A Beautiful Neighbourhood Of Shanghai

    Effie and Winston met through work in New York City. Both are currently residing in Shanghai, and it is beautiful to have their photographer capture their everyday life around their neighbourhood. We love this because when you look at these photos, you don’t just focus on how they look, but you also allow the surroundings to add another layer of narrative. We can’t emphasise enough how much we love Chris Spira’s photography style, and the fact that she spends so much time in Asia. You should really catch her when she is in town!
