One of my fav session in Oct. Not only I get some stunning photos, but I have two stories to share with you as well.

Look at the first photo below – thanks everyone the effort to make this photo happened. We took this photo at the waterfall Mirror Pool near the Bride ‘s Pool “新娘潭”. It took us 15 min to walk (up and down) to get there. I ‘ll never do that for other bride, but Mel is an exception. She lives in the very northern part of new territories, in fact,  her house can see Shenzhen and she walks to the Lo Wo train station every day. You can imagine that she is so used to walking around in the country side, and most of the locations that we picked are in the country side.

What I like to to share with you is the second story. This is about the 2nd shot below. I asked them to run and jump in front of a small temple, it took 7-8 times before they had the action in sync. During one of the jump, Dickson fell onto the ground, and I thought it must be very hurt as I saw his arm hit the ground first. Out of my surprise, he said “Don’t worry, it doesn’t hurt at all and let ‘s jump again !!!”

After we finished the morning session, we went back home … … When Mel was having make up upstairs, Dickson immediately grab a bottle of 跌打酒 (a kind of Chinese medicine) to rub on his arms. Then I knew the fall really hurt, but he didn’t mention about it so that we could go on to take more beautiful photos of Mel !!!!

Love to see a groom with such a beautiful heart in very wedding/pre-wedding session !!!!

    WAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!  Hao leng ahhh!  Simon, that wait was so worth it!  You really did some magic with your camera lens.  I can’t believe that was us!  Wish my Honey could’ve been here to see the shots together with me the first time!! 
    Now I will look at them slowly again (and again and again)!

    gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they are all sooooo impressive!!
    love the shots are the bride’s pool (and isn’t BRIDE’s pool the best place to take WEDDING pics?)
    also love the shots at the container yard… that’s soooo unique (and a very unique place of HK too!)
    agree with Mel & Dickson that simon + camera = magic! 
    (phew, luckily you are going back to october! 😛 we’re still waiting patiently for our photos!! hehehe…)

    I thought Bride’s Pool was a good idea too. 
    Then I clicked on Simon’s wiki
    link: the explanation was that a bride fell in and *drowned* in the pool during the procession.  The pool was therefore named Bride’s Pool in memory of the bride.  Luckily, there wasn’t a curse and I didn’t drown (nor fall in)!!

    Gong Hei Gong Hei!!! Mel you are glowing and Dickson looks like he has found gold!

    My favourite of them all is the Star Ferry Night, effortless and elegant, really reminds me of an ad campaign. Then the photo of " The Jump before The Fall" is like a scene from a martial arts movie, Mel looks like a flying goddess and Dickson looks very scared.  Very funny.
