I was challenged by cosette and ben 4

this was a challenge for me for pre-wedding session of cosette and ben

We 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)

I was worried before going to these three locations as I had never taken any pre-wedding photos there (and I don’t think  I ‘d suggest them to my clients). Guess what!!!!!  I  got lots of new shooting ideas and lots of new photos on that day. What I learned this time —  we really need to get out the safety and comfort zone sometimes, and take the risk, in order to get inspired. A very great experience for me !!!

a comic book corner at the student hostel  – both cosette and ben lived in this hostel when they studied in CUHK .
I felt very anxious before going there, as you can expect, there is few nice and beautiful spot  in a student hostel like this. Having said that, this is the place at where I got the most interesting photos !!!! Feel very excited about it !!!
