Wedding of Rita and Michael was on July 8, 2007. It was a very hot day (34 degree !!), the ceremony & reception ‘re held at the marquee of Harbour Plaza Metropolis, Patio.

Before the ceremony, We took some pic.  While they ‘re staying inside the coffee shop, I shot outside the window and used the reflection on the windows to see the marquee. I had to move around until I could get a nice reflection. I could feel that they are having a lot of fun even though I couldn’t hear them through the windows.

I love this shot, especially the motion of the dress. We ‘re almost finish shooting inside the hotel, when we walked through a corridor back to the marquee, I found the overhead light may work beautifully, so I ask Rita to dance (yes !! to dance) under it. And it works !!!!

Behind the scene. To take the picture above, I climbed on a ladder to get a special angle.
Question: Where can you find a ladder?
Answer: You can always find a ladder behind the backdrop in most of the reception

    Hi Simon,
    Love to see your new job again after a long wait.  Glad to see something new in this set of pics.  I love the first and sixth one. 
    I’ve seen wedding pics of this venue by other photographers before.  You’re so talent enough to make this venue entirely different.

  3. Hi Carita,
    Nice to hear you again and thanks for your words. I particular like the 1st photo as it is difficult to work with window reflection. While you got a nice reflection, the expression of the couple might not work and I couldn’t talk to them through the window. But both elements are perfect in the pic.

  5. I learn more from your blog for free than in all the workshops I’ve attended. Right after I try the bunny ears trick, I’m going to look for the ladder! Thanks!
