when clients discuss with me about my photography style, we always have the following conclusions
when we have a bride as beautiful as an angel, we don’t need photoshop nor HDR effect in your photos … ..
when we have a happy couple, we don’t need to bother where and which location to take photos as the couple will shine … …
when we have beautiful dress and beautiful hair styling, why do so many photographers make the couple so small in the photos that we see nothing about the couple at all
when we have good lighting and the available light is so beautiful, why bother taking out the flash from the bag, come on! light is everywhere if you can see it.
so what is my style…..
my principle is always “simple is the best”, and people and lighting are the most important components in my photo.

(words from Abby and Kenny)
“Happiness rests on people and happenings, not locations,” – this has been revolving in my mind since the engagement shooting. We are indeed fortunate to have the encouragement and support from friends and exceptional, big-hearted people all along, sunny and gloomy days the same way.
Simon, your sense of fun and adventure was contagious and has touched our hearts. We still remember that you stood in the middle of the pond to take pictures of us standing on the bridge while all of a sudden the water just gushed out behind you – which left us screaming right at the set…
Never would Abby have thought of being asked to sit on Kenny’s shoulder right in the middle of Stanley Main Street but with an exuberant, totally fired up photographer – why not taking his suggestion and simply enjoy the moment? (But we did [......]

If you ‘ve followed my blog for a period of time, you should know that I like to take photos on beach. Working on beach is always a joyful and exciting experience and the resulting photos are always my favorite. Having said that, because of the rainly and cold weather in last two months, my clients seldom choose it for prewedding photo location in last season. So when emily decided to go to beach, I was looking forward to it very much, and after discussing with her regarding the photo style she likes, I was glad that the style she likes is exactly what I like.

It has been awhile since my last post. Schedule was crazily busy recently and it got worse that my blog got hacked frequently in last two weeks and I had to restore my blog several times to keep it running. Finally, with help from my friend, I just upgraded the blog software to the latest version and hopes that all the security holes are corrected and further hacking is prevented.
The weather this week is so bad that all pre wedding sessions are postponed. Shooting in rain is always not an easy task. The session of amy and yan yan was definitely one of the most difficult one recently. The rain never stopped, lighting was very flat, and the strong wind made us hold any lighting equipment difficult, if not impossible.

I just found that I didn’t write about any pre-wedding/engagement photo session for a long long time. My last write up of pre-wedding session was Aug last year already ………
Anyway, just came up a new idea for all my clients, you ‘re welcome to contribute “Guest Post” to my blog here – you can write anything you like about your photo session or anything you ‘d like to share about your wedding. I believe all my blog readers will be very eager to see more client sharing here. At the same time, it also helps me a lot to post your photos faster here. isn’t it cool
here is the first guest post from chloe and felix !!!!
A beautiful sunny day and perfect for photo shooting! The locations chosen were not unique – Soho, Stanley market (which was where we became engaged), Tai Tam and the Peak. [......]

there is always a “love and hate” relationship with summer time for wedding photographer.
HATE: it is so hot now and it ‘s really very tough shooting pre-wedding outdoor, not to mention, the humidity and mosquito … … In addition, there is less wedding (that means less business) in the summer time because of the raining and typhoon weather .. … that ‘s why so many photographers organizing oversea pre-wedding tour during this period … …
LOVE: it is the perfect time for me to take pre wedding photo at the beach. shooting photos with your feet in the cool sea water is just a joy. I feel so excited and get inspired if the client loves to have photos on the beach, and I really don’t care if my camera or lens get dirty or damaged with the salty water or the sand. Of course, I don’t need you [......]

When I had the pre meeting with brenda and holger before the wedding day, they had a very special request that they likes to have some portraits that could really represent the city life of Hong Kong. And we finally decided to have the location photo session at the streets just outside the Landmark and Alexandra House building. As you can imagine that there is really the busiest area of the Central area, and it’s quite challenging for me. And this is not a common place for photo for most of the my clients as they don’t like it because they work here and this place is too common for them.
However, for brenda and Holger, as they live and work overseas most of the time, they love the city landscape a lot that the decision of having the wedding in hong kong is a no brainer and having some [......]

both annie and angus ‘re working abroad and seldom stay in Hong Kong, so they don’t have any idea where to have their pre-wedding photo taken when they ‘re back to Hong Kong last dec. If you remembered, the old Central police station was opened to public last dec, so I suggested this location to them. Finally, I did pre-wedding session at this location three time last year, and annie and angus ‘s session was the last one, which I love the photos very much. Hope you enjoy.
location: old central police station, Sheung Wan, Stanley military cemetery, star ferry and Central make up artist: polly of faces makeup studio
