wedding of mimi and ramsy
December 19, 2009

In my first meeting with cordelia and fred, cordelia had a very special request for me in their engagement photo session.

“Hi Simon, I have a special request … … “ asked cordelia.

“ yep, what ‘s that ?”

“I ‘d like to wear glasses in front of the camera, I just can’t get used to my look without glasses, it is not me!!” replied cordelia.

“No problem, why not?” I answered quickly.

However, after this quick answer. I am thinking if I had any other bride wearing glasses in their photo session – the answer is NO.

Did I see any similar bridal photo photo before on internet – the answer is NO.

sounds interesting and challenging, right?

HI cordelia and fred, thanks and see you soon again in your wedding in Jan 2010

locations: Central, Shek O, home

been to Shek O hundred times. No rush, no planned (or must have) shots required, the day was so relaxed and we just walked around in Shek O,
so happy that I could get this interesting shot at Shek O

    It’s a beautiful set of pics- the bride is a natural beauty! I must confess I normally love glasses too and hate contacts, but I am not as brave as the bride and wear glasses to my photo shoot! So for all the brides with glasses out there- I respect you!

    yea i salute for her confidence to wear glasses at engagement photo shoot… i changed from glasses to contact lens when i had to take my high school senior picture and never turn back… now my eyes are irritated by wearing glasses for too long… but i know one day i am gonna switch back to glasses… one day…

    btw… that’s the same Peru tour book i was using too! 🙂

    The pictures are wonderful, unlike those boring and “ugly” (/ heavy make up) typical “港女” and “港男” style.

    To be honest, I am glade to see someone finally think “out of the box” and be creative and original. 🙂

    I agree with Maxine. The wedding pics in “Hong Kong Style” are really awful: heaving make up and standardized posts. You can’t even recognize the bride.

    Simon: Good Job!
    Corde: Congrats!

    Hi!

    I absolutely LOVE you work. This is exactly the kind of pre-wedding photography that I'm hoping to have. I will be getting married in the U.S. this December, but will be in Hong Kong next month (until November) and I am looking for a photographer to do my engagement session with my fiance. How can I go about contacting you in regards to reserving a photo session with you?
