I am so excited to Welcome Fei & Angel to our ‘Spotlight’ this coming year! I was so excited when I learned that Angel had entered her family in this part of Tashena Shaw Photography’s Blog. As I knew they would be an AMAZING part to our Spotlighted families this year. We met up Sunday evening for a mini session at Virginia Beach Town Center. We wanted a place that was away from the beach life, but was friendly for their pup Snow. This is a couple full of life, giggles, and a story which I am sure MANY American families can relate to. Two souls born outside The United States of America but found the American dream with those they love. Our Lord works in amazing ways and I can’t wait till you all learn of their story along the way. A couple truly showing the world what America is like… And how we all come from many lives, families, and cultures that make up what America is all about.
I hope you all (The Readers) enjoy their year with us. And enjoy their story as we venture through life with them this coming year. ❤
AND PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU CHECK OUT THEIR FUNNY T-SHIRTS THEY WORE… PRICELESS IS ALL I CAN SAY !!! If these images don’t show you just how AWESOME this couple is… And will be this year to come… ❤ You just have to watch & follow to find out, lol.
***Here are some questions Fei & Angel have answered for us. A small way to better connect and understand this couple.***

HOW LONG YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONE HAVE BEEN TOGETHER (MARRIED)?
Married for almost 6 years our anniversary is August 12th 2010
HOW DID YOU ALL MEET?
We met 6 years ago and a mutual friends party. We got paired together in a game of beer pong and i thought he was very nice and funny. We exchanged information and and started to hang out and quickly developed a relationship. He was the first guy my mom liked right away and after only dating for 2 months he asked my parents permission to marry me. 💕
THE PROPOSAL – he first started by showing proposal videos from China. That opened up the question “how do people propose in the US?” He then asked me “How do you envision your proposal?” I told him that I always imagined being proposed to in a castle in Ireland. So he planed a day at Bush gardens with my whole family and he proposed to me on a stage in Ireland. It was super sweet. We got engaged on a Sunday, got our wedding certificate on Monday and got married on Tuesday. It was a quick wedding. My dress and his suit were both bought at the mall. We had a big wedding 3 years later in China and my mom, stepdad, little brother and 2 friends flown in too. We want to renew our vows on our 10 year anniversary here in the states too.
DO YOU HAVE ANY ANIMALS OR PETS?
Snow – 2 Years Old – Pekingese mix
We have one Fur baby. She is an extremely spoiled rescue puppy. My husband and I always wanted a dog and talked about it for a while. My husband wanted to get a big, fancy, purebred and I surprised him with Snow. Like me, it was love at first sight.
JOBS AND INTERESTED OR HOBBIES?
FEI – Ace is a real estate agent for Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Towne Realty. His hobbies are working out and playing basketball.
ANGELICA – I’m a student majoring in Early childhood development and work as a waitress and also part time for a “princess company” as a Disney princess character. My hobbies are karaoke and finding new DIY crafts to do.
WHAT DO YOU LOOK FORWARD TO SHARING THIS FOLLOWING YEAR WITH US?
I would like to share our love for each other and have others join us on our journey to make our family whole. We both come from two completely different cultures and were raised around different beliefs and traditions. But despite that we have remained happily married and look forward to many more happy years together.
SOMETHING YOU WISH THE READERS TO KNOW (UNDERSTAND) ABOUT YOUR FAMILY?
We have been trying to have a baby for some time now. We both remain optimistic and hopeful. We know that having a little bundle of Joy would really complete our family. Ace has said he would want a girl and I feel like a girl would be perfect too but honestly we would be happy with anything as long as they are happy and healthy.
***AND NOW FOR THEIR SESSION !!!***
She (Snow) wasn’t to happy about hanging out with my Hubby while her Mommy and Daddy got their photos done without her. ❤
