Transporting us back in time, Leah and Justin’s vintage Chinese engagement session is full of history and charm. Inspired by Leah’s fascination with the architecture, design, and visuals of ancient Chinese dynasties, the pair knew they wanted to capture their engagement session in a unique light to honor those times. They experienced two different time periods all in one session; leaving us with these striking photos of the contrasting times.
“Justin and I had the opportunity to do something different for our engagement shoot, and get a small taste of how we would look and dress in that era! We wore 漢服 (“Hanfu”) and experienced what would have been an afternoon shared by a married couple during the Jin dynasty. The clothing required constant fixing and it was hard to move around, it’s no wonder many helpers were needed to assist all the time!” She continued, “We also dressed up in 1920s Chinese Western-era clothing….The Western influence in China during that time period created an interesting juxtaposition of design and a blend of cultures which was also beautiful in its own way.”
“Justin had never visited China before and it was the perfect opportunity to dress up in historical eras since he was already exploring his roots on our trip.”
This e-session is the perfect inspiration to show love through the ages!
