Aisuluu & Urustom are the dream couple. Not only did they get up at 6 am in the morning to beat the crowds for a prewedding shoot at the Shanghai bund, they were also 2 people that were SIMPLY KIND-HEARTED. Their love is so sweet and quiet and strong, you can just feel it. And they laugh – a LOT . I feel indeed very lucky to have had the honour to meet and photograph them. Aisuluu is also a florist and makes beautiful floral arrangements (instagram: aisuluu_napasova). Urustom is also an entrepreneur and will be opening artisanal ice-cream with dairy from Kyrgyzstan in Shanghai! Can’t wait to try them myself! They are both from Kyrgyzstan but met in Shanghai (how amazing is this life?) – and to my embarrassment and ignorance, I did not even know this country! I learnt a little bit about this land from them, and they will actually be getting married this week in their home country. This is part 1 of their shoot at the Shanghai bund. We had the entire bund to ourselves, which was really lovely! I wish you both a beautiful wedding all the happiness in the world!
I will copy here an extract of Aisuluu’s email after she received the entire gallery of images, it means the world to me!
