Bianca and Rosea asked me to photograph their Philadelphia Cambodian Blessing Ceremony at Rosea’s moms house before they left for their destination wedding in the Dominican Republic a few days later and I was so honored to be apart of such an incredible day of celebrating and blessing their marriage. So many of their favorite people crowded into a South Philly row home and the energy was as vibrant as their beautiful traditional outfits. Following a beautiful ceremony, there was food and food and more delicious food, shots of Hennessy all around and I even had a chance to steal Rosea and Bianca away for a few moments and photograph some beautiful portraits of them to commemorate that day. My favorite part of the day was watching person after person come up to them to give a blessing, gift and tie a red chord around each of the couples wrist. For over a half hour love was just given to this couple and it was beautiful to be apart of and capture and I am so honored they chose me and Jordan to be the ones to capture it all for them!
Enjoy a few of my favorite images from their day!
