When I began planning my wedding, I knew high on my list of priorities was PHOTOGRAPHY. I grew up with a mom WAY into photography, as evidenced by my highly documented life. And I knew that John and I would mostly remember our wedding day from the pictures we had of the event. Luckly for me, I knew just the person to call. Literally the first vendor we booked for our wedding was John Yao of Simply Two photography. No really, this is how it went:
- Me: I can’t believe that we’re getting married!
- John: Yeah, I’m really excited.
- Me: What are you doing?
- John: Texting John Yao to find out if he can do our wedding.
- *phone chirps*
- John: Oh, yep, he can.
I had the privilege of working with John Yao when he partnered with YMI to create Project Resonate, a mission to give people a vision for missions through media such as videos and photographs. You can read about our trip to Costa Rica on this blog here. He’s a amazing photographer and awesome person.
This Friday I get to pick John Yao up from the airport for John and I’s engagement session this weekend!! I’m really really excited to get some great pictures of John and I together to display at our wedding and in our home :)
You should check out John Yao’s blog to see some of his awesome work. He’s really great.
