Photographer's Note

Photography for weddings in Taiwan is big business. Just in my town alone, there are dozens of wedding photography shops all along the main street.

A few weeks or months before people get married, they go out with a photography team for a day or two (or longer!) and shoot photos at special locations around the country. They wear dozens of different outfits, and get their hair styled and their make-up done according to the outfit. They even put tape across the bride's eyelids to give her wide eyes, as well as often tape up the breasts.

In the end, after lots of airbrushing and editing, the couple is left with a beautiful book full of (sometimes cheesy) photos, for all the guests to see at their wedding. This photo was taken at a park in Taichung, where a bride and groom to be were posing for their photographer. I converted it to black and white because the green from the lilies was too overpowering.
