sweet sweet wedding of jo and desmond 4

I still remember the first time I met Jo and Desmond – in a coffee shop in grand hyatt. At the very first second I saw them, I already felt I met them before, but I was not very sure in which occasion. I finally learned that they were the bridesmaid and groomsman of the wedding of maggie and simon 3 years ago  …. ….  And, to my surprise, it is THIS wedding in which they met each other and started dating since then. So excited!!! Feel like I witnessed and being part of the wedding.

ceremony: kau yan church
reception: island shangri la
makeup artist: polly of facehk
video: ken of simon.the.photo

havn’t been uploading video here for a long time. I ‘d like to upload more video, but it really takes time for video conversion and uploading. Let me upload more videos from Ken in next two weeks.

did you notice that I posted less and less portrait photos on wedding day posts? I found that most of my clients love my photojournalist style on wedding day. Yes, we still do some portraits, but it usually doesn’t take more than  10-15 min. The followings are some of my fav portraits of Jo – which we did under 5 min (just before we left the church and still able to catch the last few min. of sunset light from windows)
as time is very short.  we only used available light and NO flash or video light was used. But the result was still stunning !!!

    Simon, Ken, Polly(MUA) and teammates,

    Thank you so much for your help to make us beautiful and had a great enjoyment on wedding day! It's your professional work to let us feel very easy on that day as well as to have memorable shots and touching moments.

    You know when we decided to get married, you are the first one we urged to make appointment with, and then we believed we didn't need to worry anymore about the photo and video issue, haha~~~Thank you!

    Jo & Desmond
