Groom & Parents: Photojournalism

I photograph many Asian weddings, and I've found that Asian grooms are typically very close to their parents.

Please don't misunderstand that I think American grooms or grooms other nationalities aren't close to their parents. I just noticed that Asian families often have different traditions than other American families.

With this cultural differentiation and common truth, I always make sure that I bring a little something extra to family portraits.

When I'm photographing families, I like to think of the kinds of photographs that parents would love to hang on their walls or put on their desks. Although traditional family portraits might be the mainstay, I enjoy creating spontaneous and candid photographs like this one.
