The Chinese have a bizarre approach to wedding photography. They have the photos taken before the wedding, sometimes as much as 6 months before. And yes, as you can guess sometimes the wedding is called off which leaves the couple in the unusual situation of having photos of a wedding that never took place.
I came across this scene in Qingdao. From a distance I couldn't figure what all the white speckles were on the rocks. As I got closer and it started to become clear it reminded of a wildlife program about seals on rocks. I don't know whether it's like this all the time or that happened to be a special 'wedding photography' day but I would hate to be one of those photographers trying to make sure no other bride was in the background of their shot. Every culture has it's own approach but this certainly takes away the uniqueness.
