1/30: Self-portrait. Although we had quite a number of photographers and videographers on our wedding day, I also had my own little coverage going on in the palm of my hands. I held a point-and-shoot camera (a Samsung WP10 I borrowed from my bridesmaid and friend Olivia) and carried it with me the whole day, from the hotel where I had my bridal preps up to the wedding ceremony. I think there’s something really special about seeing a wedding through the lens of the bride, blurred and all, yes? (:
This is one of my favorite shots:

That’s me with my mother, who looked more like my older sister. She’s my role model–the embodiment of everything I want to be as a mother and a wife. I can never enumerate everything that she taught me, but I’ll always admire her for her unwavering faith, and her contagious devotion to God and His Word. I’ve always thought I have big shoes to fill if I want to be like her, but I’m glad to have gotten her genes. Hopefully by means of genetics, I may potentially be as loving, and graceful, and beautiful as she is. (:
