Time to see some results

I'm supposed to go and pick up my sister's and her boyfriend's wedding album today, but I'm not going to make it as I have to go to Shanghai. Since I have managed to lose the phone number to the wedding agency (don't ask) I am expecting a day of phone calls from the agency asking me where I am and when I am coming. Ah, I hate not being able to cancel properly, but this Shanghai thing came a bit sudden. I have to go to the agency tomorrow or on Sunday instead. I really cannot wait to see the result of this shoot. Especially since I haven't even seen half of the pictures (I wasn't allowed to be in the room when they shot the different costumes in the studio). Let's just hope now that they haven't added any cheesy, weird lines about love in the album.

If I have time next week I am planning a visit to the 'wedding dress street' near Tiger Hill in Suzhou (some people have emailed me and asked me about the address, but the name cards I grabbed just say "Huqiu home 201" (Chinese address is: 苏州虎丘居家). I guess if you add a line about weddings clothes (婚礼的衣服-hun li de yifu) you cannot go wrong. I am going to get my bride's maid dress done, which is going to be a not-so-traditional blue, fairly short, quite crazy little thing (my sister approved -I don't look good in long dresses). Anyways, now off to Shanghai. Have a good Friday everyone!

The ladies looooved Michael!
We loved the pimped car!

The clothes fitted OK, although the pants were a bit short...

no no... it's my sis. She's the one getting married, not me! :)

Ash said...

Whoa, your sis resembles you a lot.
'cept that the hair color is a bit different.

Hm. My wife is starting to ask me when we're going to get some formal pictures of our own done. Somehow, we just never got around to it.

Are you trying to tell us that you're not getting married?

The last picture of your sister in the traditional chinese wedding dress is the prettiest and so cute and so different !!.
And you look like her.
What does that say?

Pose more of her in the traditional Chinese Wedding Dress. Will be priceless when seen in Europe.

Thanks for sharing

Les Enfants du Soleil -haha, so funny that people say that. In my family we are the two people (out of six) that look the least alike!! I bet u would think my other sis is my twin :)

Brad F -u should! And do it while in China. You'll get an unforgettable experience as well as some quite interesting (and memorable!) photos!

David -no... that was not my intention. Although I am not really planning to get married anytime soon.

Spacealien -I bet my sis will be beaming when she reads your comment :)

Yes, "Beam" your Sis down to Suzhou again.
You both look just like Twins,
so we Aliens cannot really tell,
who is who. :-)
