January 2nd~3rd, I planned to shoot the wedding-dress photograph finally came true. In Taiwan, shooting wedding-dress photos usually before the wedding day. Because we like to share the wedding dress photos at wedding date to the guests. I plan to shoot many different location photos, and this is our first location, it has a very special name, but I don't know how to translate it, so I say it is "Leave sad behind forest", the meaning is just like that. We started going at Jan 2nd 5:30am to the country. Before we went to that forest, we met a very big a tea plantation.
It's very beautiful, and the mists come and go time to time.
To the entrance, we started to climb, my bagback has 3 wedding-dresses.
The elevation of "Leave sad behind forest" is about 2000M, we were climbing steep hill to the top, Arion also carried very big tools to the top.
Climbing very fast into the forest, and we find out now is the dry season, the forest doesn't have any water, please click here to understand the forest with water, it should be a big forest marsh. Right now the water part is gone, left the tree become the white color, just like snow.
But the view still very good, we didn't delay any minutes, I quickly jump into the tent and change the wedding dress.
The forest in winter looks bleak, I love the atmosphere very much, I used to wrote the stories several years ago, and the background just like this, I love it. I tolerate the cold air dress (about 44°F) , with Karen's big help, doing makeup and hair, and we are ready to shoot.
Karen also doing her very first time to help other people doing makeup, she got great talent.
Arion brought his suit as well to the forest, he is also ready to shoot. We are chasing the sunset's light.
Very Very cold, luckly we have sun, and the sky is very blue, the sun leaves very very fast, so we are shooting very very quickly.
This stocking was giving by EG, Titus 's mommy last year, I love it so so much, and I wear it to keep my feet warm. Thank you, EG's mommy!!
This man is Arion's classmate at college, he is cooperating very well, help us having the best light, I am also very thankful. We are only shooing 1 dress, and the sun is gone, we quickly packing and back to the place staying until next dawn.
The bamboo is very beautiful.
And the mists fly to the tea garden again, so so beautiful.
And this is our main photographer, he is really a superman, carry the most heavy camera and tools to make the shooting quality to the perfect!!
Cloud sea. We are so tired and happy at dinner, sleep very early and prepare for the next day shooting.
Next dawn Jan 3rd, we woke up at 03:40am, after eating breakfast, we back to the "leave sad behind forest" again.
And we find out all the grass and tea leaves are all frosting, you can see right now the air is just under 32°F.
frosting, frosting, frosting...
Very Very Very cold, we are quickly into the forest and changing again, very cold, my feet were so pain.
This time, I am also thankful another friend helped me carry my camera to shoot this these images, or I can't able to show these to you.
Today the sky is so blue and sunny, makes us so so happy.
The white wedding dress is too long to walk, every step I depend on friends to help carry the dress. I am so grateful I have such great friends around me~!
This is the wood I will sit on, also frosting, too. You can imagine I will have a very frosting butt.
Normally, this is the marsh's ground. This green part is not grass, but the plant and moss under the water, very wet, muddy and slippery, everyone is walking very taugh.
At this moment, I really wish Adan and Lego is next to me, hahahaha~~~
This is I am standing on a piece of wood without any shoes and stocking, Karen is helping me showing the best angle of dress, my lap is shiver from the beginning to the end.
Very Very cold, but also very very beautiful, every photographer is so great, I am so grateful.
This wood also very high, everyone is helping me standing on it.
Can you see this is the bow Adan wear it before? This is made by Pamilla. We shoot from the dawn to the noon, finally finish the photo, everyone making the hot tea for me, taking me very very well. I am almost crying~!
Before leaving, I finally could shoot by myself to take the blue sky into my camera, I told myself will come again while the marsh has water.
Thank you for everyone so so so so much to help me shooting the wedding-dress photograph. I will always remember these days in my life.
Blue sky, green mountain, I have a great memory here.
This is the painting at the hotel we stay, makes me missing Adan very much.
Thank for my friend attend this big moment in my life, I am so touching.
