Hi everyone,

a quick update of myself in the 1st two weeks of 2009. The first thing I had in 2009 was : I got a flu !!!!! I was feeling sick and had a very bad cough. I got 6 weddings and pre-wedding shoots in these two weeks and it ‘s a challenge for me to work when I kept coughing all the time. It ‘s getting better and better now, hopes no more cough before the wedding on coming Sunday.

another beautiful wedding I ‘d like to share with you. This is the wedding of Loretta and James on the Christmas Eve. Not a big wedding, but everyone was so nice and friendly on the day.

When I first met James in the morning, my first impression was: this guy really had a very good taste of dressing!!!! Then I learned later that Loretta worked in the fashion industry – and she choose all the cloths, tie, shoes … .. for him. Lucky man, isn’t he?

We did a same day photo slideshow at night, my assistant Siu B helped me to create this slideshow. He did a very good job and everyone loved  it. This is the first time to show a same day photo slideshow on this blog.

date: 24 dec 2008
ceremony and reception: Plateau (the pool house) of Grand Hyatt
video: ken of simon.the.photo

I love this venue very much. I got some free time before the reception and took the beautiful shot of the venue. This is a kind of “multiple exposure” shots (with some Photoshop manipulation).
I used a off-camera flash to illuminate different parts (tables and flowers) on different exposures and merge it into one photo. You can see the shots of individual exposure here.

    Loretta looked very elegant in the slideshow.  Yes, I agreed that it is very different from video. It is not easy to catch every precious moment. Some of the moments are really very touching !

    Hi Nicole,
    My wedding gown does not have any brand. I designed it and have it made. You can contact Tina from Classic on 2356-1033 and have yours made. As for makeup, you can call Heidi Lau on 2997-2121.  She is very talented and is a very nice girl.
    Hope you’ll find your dream gown. 🙂
    Hi Kaka,
    You can also contact Tina for gowns. Good luck!

    Hi Loretta,
     I must have watched your video slideshow for more than 10 times! It was such a phenomenal piece of work. The music and images are blending in such harmony, not to mention that you are such a beautiful bride. Simon and Siu B’s talent is undeniable in capturing the precious moments. I am very lucky to have hired Simon for my wedding photoshoot this year. I am hoping that the outcome will be as nice.
    On the other hand, do you know how long does it take for Tina to have the bridle gown custom made? I am from overseas, and time is tight for fitting.
