Young Chinese couples are posing for their wedding photos in Dali, China. As symbol of romantism, the Dali old town welcomes every week hundreds of couples who come especially to make their wedding photos. Many of them even cross the country for this special occasion. After hiring a local photographer and his assistants, the couples start a long day of shooting in the old town. During the shooting, no time for creative photos. The dresses, the poses and the spots are the same for all the couples. China 2018 – © Jerome Gence

Most of the time, those wedding shoots take place few months before the ceremony. The reason is that the traditional chinese weddings follow a long process of practices which don’t give so much space to spontaneous moments for photos. By making pre-wedding photos, the couples can have enough time to pose as much they want and can show the photos to their guests during the ceremony. China 2018 – © Jerome Gence
