having fun in Central <br>- wedding of mei-kee and söeren 3

I love taking photos in Central, I can easily find locations with good color, texture, and light. I had taken numerous pre-wedding sessions in Central, but this was the first time leading over 25 persons.

Both mei-kee and söeren came from Germany, now working in India and chose Hong Kong for their ceremony. It was the first time for most of their friends being in Hong Kong — when mei-kee decided to take some photos in Central in the morning, everyone was excited to follow us and have a walk altogether.

You may think it was very difficult to manage such a large group on the street, instead, they ‘re such a fabulous group that I had so much fun working with them.

date: 27 feb, 2008
ceremony and reception: the peninsula hotel, hong kong

Tips: In other to work with such a big group,

  • you have to be very confident on what you ‘re doing
  • plan ahead what you are going to do in next 30 sec
  • give clear instructions, of course, you have to shout loudly

the big “group shot” — when I was taking this photo, all the passer-by around stopped and looked at me !!!

Even though there ‘re over 20 of their friends and families looking at them, they ‘re still very natural in front of the camera

  7. Hi All,
    thanks, I used different colour temp setting for these two pics, the first one is cool while the second one is warmer.
    it ‘s more difficult for the first one, so many groomsmen, and I had to get the moment when they didn’t overlap each other.
