This was certainly a special "farewell session" - first, becuase the couple's friends had the brilliant idea of purchasing them a photo session for their going-away party, and second: because it was at the absolutely incredible Indigo on the Bund! The party location was absolutely stunning; although I have passed by Indigo on the Bund many, many times, I have honestly never been inside - let alone inside one of the private suites overlooking the riverfront. Stunning views, a private balcony, and an incredible spread of food made this a night to remember - as did the atmosphere of close friends all having a great time to send off one of their own.
I certainly wish the Bartons the best in their new adventures, and thank them and their friends for allowing me to send them off with some beautiful memories of their community here in Shanghai. A big thank you to my partner Lucy Landaeta, who this was a photo session for - Lucy is a good friend and another talented photographer in Shanghai, and it was a pleasure to be on this assignment for her!
