something new learned - elizabeth and kenneth 10

something new learned – elizabeth and kenneth

幫 elizabeth 同 kenneth 影相當日,環境都非常差。在大潭開始時還可以,去到赤柱美利樓,影左一陣就開始落雨,重要果日唔知點解咁鬼多遊客,全部人就迫晒入美利樓避雨。在小小的空間,又咁多人,一時間我都有d慌張,真係唔知點影好。壓力總是自已比自已,因為感覺客人對 Simon 的其望很高,又覺得 simon 乜野地方都影到靚相 (我都希望係)。

I was challenged by cosette and ben 14

I was challenged by cosette and ben

this was a challenge for me for pre-wedding session of cosette and benWe didn't go to University of HK on the day, instead we went to a student hostel in the Chinese University of HK . For the outdoor session, no stanley market, no shek O this time, we choose to go to the Ma On Shan Park. What about the night shoot? When we 're on our way to Central, we suddenly changed our plan and went to the Shatin Central park instead (OMG, I have never heard any other wedding photographers taking wedding photos there at night before)

something new again - wedding of vivian and vincent 16

something new again – wedding of vivian and vincent

Shooting at the same location every week is a good and bad thing - you get very familiar with the places, but easily get bored at the same time. To avoid getting bored, I 'll try my best to get a few new and creative shots every time, if I can get 2-3 new shots on the day, then I am satisfied, and don't have pressure at all for the rest of the day. 2-3 new shots may sound too less for you, but please remember, we may have over 20 weddings in a month during the peak season, that translates to creating 40-60 new shots in a month, it 's pretty challenging in fact.

you made me cry – part ii

many people asked me why I cried ( after shooting hundreds of wedding in last few years), I would say I was really moved by what roger said to his father at the end of the two-days wedding.

wedding of loretta and james 36

wedding of loretta and james

another beautiful wedding I ‘d like to share with you. This is the wedding of Loretta and James on the Christmas Eve. Not a big wedding, but everyone was so nice and friendly on the day.When I first met James in the morning, my first impression was: this guy really had a very good taste of dressing!!!! Then I learned later that Loretta worked in the fashion industry – and she choose all the cloths, tie, shoes … .. for him. Lucky man, isn’t he?
