Two weeks after being hit by the earthquake, people in Yingjiang County are trying to get their lives back on track. Let's take a look at a bride and groom for whom the earthquake has become a backdrop, as they enter a new chapter in their life.
"Do you like to pull it down or tie it up?" "pull it down."
Xiu and Shao Bai were due to get married on April 4th. They booked the wedding photo shoot for March 18th. But with just a week to go, the earthquake struck - and changed everything. The photography studio was hit, like many other places, but fortunately, it reopened within 10 days. Xiu and Shao's photo shoot was rescheduled, as was their wedding. But the location has had to be changed.
Ms. Xiu, Bride, said, "My home has been hit hard. We're now living in tents, and the wedding will be there, too. "
Shao Bai, Groom, said, "The people in our village helped us with the tents. It's all been taken care of. "
Happy, but a little nervous, the new couple are finally able to head to the photo shoot, to capture the moments that will last a lifetime.
"Good. Look towards me. Good. Smile like you're full of hope. One, two, three. "
The pictures are taken amidst a backdrop of debris left by the earthquake. Photographer, Guo Jian, says he's never done a photo shoot in this kind of place before.
Guo Jian, Photographer, said, "I hope I can capture their feelings of a new beginning and new hope, and portray the fortitude of all of us trying to rebuild the county."
Guo says he hopes the photos will help reaffirm the bride and groom's faith in each other, as they overcome their difficulties. And after going through such a disaster together, perhaps they will treasure their marriage even more.
