In last two weeks, I was contacted by several wedding magazines for interview regarding my opinion on oversea pre wedding. So guess what? I turned down all these interviews finally. why? Oversea pre wedding is getting more and more popular in last two years, it’s so popular that it starts to become a COMMODITY. However, if you ‘ve followed my blog for a while, you may notice that I didn’t do any oversea pre-wedding session in last two years. As I always tell my client — first, location is the least important element in my photo, second, there are so many places in Hong Kong that are so beautiful, together with the additional time and money required for oversea job, I much prefer staying in hk for pre wedding.
I feel glad (and lucky) that there are still so many clients that love having pre-wedding photos in Hong Kong and always [......]

Since I first met fiona and danny March last year, I was looking forward to their pre-wedding session for a long long time. They ‘re such a sweet couple that every wedding photographer would love to take photo of them.
Don’t believe in me, you can see the photo below. this is a photo I got at our first meeting, hahaha, I am still keeping it in my mobile. I didn’t open my studio yet at that time, and we were still meeting in a cafe inside IFC.
Have you ever got any client like this in your meeting??? I think I am lucky to have sweet couple like this as my client.

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

If you ask me, “studio or location shooting, which one do I like more” My answer is always outdoor location shooting. Even having been to the same place lots of time before, I always find something different every time, – no matter the weather, the light, and the people, everything can be different, and something new or challenging can always be happened.
It ‘s a hot sunny day pre-wedding for charlotte and kelvin. walking on the main stanley market street, we ‘re all attracted by the mini bus selling ice-cream. Without much thought, I asked them if they like to have ice-cream for the photos. That ‘s how I got the photos below …. ….

this is another challenging photo session
everything was in a rush this time, when jojo and afred confirmed their booking, it was only three months left before their wedding day in early July next month. And we just did the engagment shoot last month. As we didn’t have much time left, we couldn’t postpone the shooting even though the weather forecast was very very bad (with thunderstorm ).
It was good that it didn’t rain at all when we started soho central in the morning. Our original 2nd location was Shek O. When we arrived, the weather was still looking good. However, the very second we finished our lunch, jojo had her costum change and I pressed the camera shutter, it started pouring !!!!! And we had to wait and wait in car, yet it didn’t look like the weather ‘d get better.
Finally, we only got three photos in [......]

shooting in school is getting more and more popular in recent months’ pre-wedding sessions. I have already been to different schools 4-5 times just in last two months.
But I never have a couple dressed in their school uniform. Kimmie and Leo are the first this time.
I never suggest wearing school uniform to my clients before, as I think it is not suitable for every client and the photos can look cheesy sometimes. I have seen lots of “school uniform pre-wedding photos” on internet that look awful, with wrong setup, wrong makeup, wrong pose … ….
So when I started the photo session of kimmie and leo, I have a little bit of worry, but that feeling was gone once I pressed the shutter. Why? look at the photos below, they just look like real students, and look so cute !!!!!! A big thumb up to [......]

Let’s talk about oversea pre-wedding photos today.
I didn’t do too many oversea photo sessions in last two years. There are several reasons behind.
First, looking at my working schedule and my family life, it is almost impossible to be away from home town for anything over 3-4 days. In addition, I hate flying home and then having to shoot a wedding the day after. there are so many accidents that can happen and I really don’t like taking the risk of it.
Then, I can’t work out the justification of the time and effort needed for oversea assignment. When I stay in Hong Kong, I can shoot 3-4 weddings/pre-weddings a week, and I can still work on post-processing and albums and meet clients for the rest of the time (not to mention, have the time to play with shulin as well), so why spend the extra time on travelling [......]
