Fujian, China wedding photographer Joy Qin

Before resigning for photography in November 2016, I worked as a consultant for a Fortune 500 company for three years. Later, due to the strong interest in photography, I chose to quit my original superior work to study photography in Beijing. In fact, when I first entered the business, I was very fond of humanities and documentary photography, and I liked Josef Koudelka and Eugene Smith as my idols. Coincidentally, through the common hobby of photography, I got to know my current wife, Lily, we opened a photography studio together in her hometown: Longyan, a small city. Based on my love of documentary photography, I took wedding documentary photography as my final choice and main business. I like to observe and capture the fleeting moments of the wedding, but also like to record their happy love story for new couples. Engaging in wedding documentary photography makes me feel happy and fulfilled. I hope that I can realize the dream of shooting weddings for new couples around the world as soon as possible, and I hope that this career will be my lifelong persistence.

While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way.

Traditional weddings often require some degree of performance on the part of the couple, whether that is in the form of reciting...Read more
