With Nepal in all of our hearts and minds right now after the devastating earthquake there, I wanted to share a Nepalese bridal session with you from Nina & Wes Photography. It shows the beauty of this exquisite mountainous country and reminds us all to do our part and help relief efforts (more on how to help below).
From Nina & Wes Photography – “This bridal session was born out of our time spent in Nepal. We wanted people to experience Nepal through the different elements of the session. We had a spread of spices that we found throughout the country and that is used in many of their cuisines. Bits of copper and brass can be seen with those elements, and can be purchased on the streets of Kathmandu. Marigolds were central to the shoot and you can see marigolds on any street in Nepal. We loved seeing them draped over the bride who is wearing a stunning Carol Hannah dress that seemed to sparkle in the Nepali sunlight.
We started The Beyond Workshop out of our love for Nepal. The Beyond Workshop focuses not only on encouraging photographers to be successful in their business, but to take their success and give back to those in need. 100% of the profits from this workshop to orphan care and human trafficking interception in Nepal. None of the vendors take any pay and we are able to give to all to those in need – last year we were able to give over $8000.
The earthquake on April 25th in Nepal has shaken all of us. So many of the beautiful places we visited and historic landmarks are now piles of rubble and the human loss is devastating. Through sharing the images of this beautiful bridal session, we hope to remind people of the beauty of Nepal, not the poverty, and remind all to help those in need.”
