she is maggie 4

from the first time I met maggie, I was looking forward to this portrait session, what a beautiful bride !!!!

the more I worked with maggie on the day, the more I knew her. Not only she is beautiful, gorgeous, but she is a very very nice girl as well.

Thanks maggie for letting me post this set of of photos here, though something really bad happened after the photo session and it is really hurting her heart.

maggie, you ‘re stronger than I believe. Wish you a happy life forever and look forward to be your photographer on your real wedding day in the future!!!!

this photo session was done in Macau. It was almost 5 years ago since I last visited Macau, though I went there a lot when I worked in my previous IT company. The place changed a lot and lots of new things (but very crowded now on the other hand)

Thanks everyone giving me suggestions of where to go on my facebook fans page, and especially thanks to eddie for coming to Tai Po to give me a Macau photo book. But finally, we went no where but the 主教山小堂 Chapel on Penha Hill, and most of the time we just stayed and walked around in the hotel. So don’t expect to see any Macau scenic photo this time. Anyway, when you already have such a beautiful bride in front of the camera, we don’t need anything else.

fav photo of the day. taken at the hotel Venetian. when I asked maggie to play with the veil, there was a sudden breeze – then it stopped. this is the only photo I got in this split second moment

anther fav of the day. This is a kind of light painting shot, we tried 4-5 times before we could get it.
camera was set on tripod, with all lights in the room switched off. Set the camera in B mode, then I used a light torch to “paint” this photo. maggie had to hold still during the process (great job !!!!)

I told maggie that I don’t need to say “你好靚女” as I believe she must hear it thousand times everyday

      HI WingYee,

      Thanks. This is my 2nd time trying light painting.

      I tried it before, but failed in another pre-wedding session.

      Lots of fun to try it.

        My god, I’m so stupid. I didn’t read the intro properly, so sorry…

        Maggie, you’re so strong and brave. Sometimes things happen for a reason and I’m a strong believer in good things come to those who wait. Bless you and take care…

    Never get tired of looking at your pics! Your veil shot is still unbelievable and the ‘painting’ is gorgeous. Great photos!

  17. light is great, pose is elegant, Maggie is beautiful, but i think this is too wide open, and makes the eye looks scary…

    Very nice picture Simon. Thanks for sharing so much to me in the dinner. As you said, location is not important. What is most important is the people in the photograph!
