Beijing actual day wedding and elopement photography by Vincent MA of China

"Happiness isn't something you experience; it's something you remember." so wrote pianist Oscar Levant, and photos are undoubtedly one of the best carriers of memory. I've been in photography since I was a kid, on a plastic film camera, I was so excited to see the result that I opened the filmback before development, so my first work turned out to be pure blank, it taught me that how important the patience is for photography, the patience for the best mood, the best composition and light, it's the best moment. I photographed my first wedding for my friends way back in 2006, they loved the photos and recommended me to their friends and it snowballed from there, in 2019 I've shot more than 300 weddings, I find the documentary photography fascinating, sometimes frustrating, other times rewarding but always very memorable. I love to tell stories, so wedding photojournalism was a natural fit when I turned my passion into my profession in 2006 (Co-founder of the Magic Wedding photography studio). But, even though my focus is on the moment, I strive to make those moments full of grace and beauty.14 years of photojournalistic experiences are impressive. Hundreds of weddings photographed all around the world. My specialty is creative documentary photography, weaving moments into my images that are iconic symbols of the day. With a background in photojournalism, I am a storyteller at heart and have been recognized internationally for my work. [Beijing Wedding Photographer]

Oftentimes when people are considering a venue for their weddings, they search for a location away from home, whether that be ten minutes or ten hours, all just to find what they already have: a place that holds meaning for them, that feels comfortable, or that they find special and memorable.

It’s no secret that these are strange times we’re going through right now, and there are many couples out there with weddings set in the near future who are left feeling uncertain and concerned about their futures.

Let your guests take in the view, especially if you've got a spectacular one. You...Read more
