Seriously, when I do find that prospect and having any possibility of a chance in wearing a wedding gown, you’ll be my shooter, I mean photographer!!! You go JJ!

Best of luck with all your wedding & fashion shootings!

Expecting to see more and more to come! (But don’t get exhausted! :))

shaoyen - I found this lovely poem on the internet to match the story about Mike and Danae which JJ trying telling us, don’t you agree JJ delievers the message successfully!

I love the way you look at me,
Your eyes so bright and blue.
I love the way you kiss me,
Your lips so soft and smooth.

I love the way you make me so happy,
And the ways you show you care.
I love the way you say, “I Love You,”
And the way you’re always there.

I love the way you touch me,
Always sending chills down my spine.
I love that you are with me,
And glad that you are mine.
(a poem by Crystal Jansen)

Good job, JJ! waiting to see more beautiful love stories in your future wedding shoots.

March 15, 2011 - 12:53 pm

shaoyen - Thanks Piao and jazzcat, I have been wondering the same thing for a while but never got chance to find the answer.

Waiting for more JJ’s beautiful wedding captures!
