Hong Kong bride Effie is the epitome of an effortless and natural beauty. I took these portraits the morning after her wedding and i totally love the imperfect look that she is owning. It does not care if the dress is crinkle-free, if you do wear full on make-up or aim for the perfect pose. What cares is that you are confident with any approach. Effie looked great on her wedding day and also the day after. Because she radiates beauty & elegance anyway. To me that is deeply inspiring to photograph.
Perfection is a concept that we create. I much more adore the japanese philosophy of Wabi Sabi. Wabi Sabi celebrates the imperfect cracks in a structure. Where everything is constantly changing. Where beauty tells a story. It is just so beautiful. The dress tells the beautiful story of the wedding celebration. Her face is relaxed and happy.
