wedding of emily and paul 4

So excited to be the photographer for the wedding of Emily and Paul. The first time I met them was back in mid 2006 and I did their engagement photo in Nov 2006.

In last few months, more and more of my clients chose to have a wedding lunch reception instead of a evening banquet, and Emily and Paul are one of them. I like this concept as well, as the atmosphere is always more relax, and guests are willing to stay longer even the reception is finished.

BTW, Paul is also a photography lover, with lots of cameras and he is also learning from a Hong Kong wedding photography master as well. Hi Paul, look forward to seeing your new works on your blog !!!

Wedding date: 18 Nov 2007
Ceremony and Lunch Reception: Harbour Plaza Metropolis, Patio.
Location shooting at night: The Hong Kong University

this photo was taken inside the hotel room. The whole picture was done "in camera"

same location, with different lighting, we created a very different picture with a very different style

They ‘re waiting outside the marquee for the ceremony. It was very lucky of me that I could capture this moment when Paul made this "I am ready" signal !!!

At night, we went to the Hong Kong University. This was a challenge for me as I had never taken any photo there at this time. It ‘s so dark everywhere !!!!

    Hi Simon and Paul,
    Excellent pictures, another great work from Simon. Congrats to Emily and Paul for having such a beautiful wedding. One outside question for Paul, I wonder where can I take wedding photography class? Am not working right now and would love to take some courses for pleasure. Do you mind sharing the source? Thanks so much. Would love to check on your work if you don’t mind posting the link.
    Cheers,

    Hi, Emily~~(So strange because my wife also called Emily, HAHA)

    I am sure that being Simon’s assistant can learn much more and faster than taking photography class~~~HAHA~~~

    Just kidding~~Actually, I am just an amateur of photography.  There are a lot of photography classes for you to choose.  You can search them in some websites or organizations such as foto28.com, UNISOFT, 觀塘職訓 etc. 

    Hope this information can help you~~

    Regards,
    Paul

    thanks paul for your valuable info. In terms of these courses, are there any specializing in wedding? Simon said you are taking courses from a wedding photography master. Do you mind sharing who that is? Thanks a lot.

    Actually, the course taken by me is a portrait photography class instead of a wedding photography class.  The class is taught by Alain Yip (葉青霖)and his apprentice.  You can search those information easily in the web.
    Hope this information can help you.
