lovin it !!!

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 them, not only they have prepared the school uniform, they also got school handbook, “perfect” badge as well. Also have to give a big thumb up to make up artist gracy, very very natural make up!!!!

makeup artist: gracy of JustGracy

they told me that they had lots of happy memories in this little corridor

our 2nd stop – after shooting in school, they didn’t have any idea where to go, so I suggested them going to my new stuido and this is my 1st time shooting on the elign street. And guess what? we spent more than 1 hour there finally.
