Lanzi and Terence did their first engagement shooting in Hong Kong before approaching us. They wanted something new but time was not allowed to go any far. Bearing this in mind, I suggested to shoot in Macau, a place which is no surprise for most HK photographers and may even be treated as an “outdated” choice. Yet, I still find it refreshing to shoot in Macau for its cultural diversity and the coexistence of old and new buildings and infrastructures.
Thanks to the great weather on that day, we made use of the natural sunlight throughout the whole shooting. The warm sunset lighting at the Chapel of Our Lady of Penha was particularly beautiful. And those photos taken there are certainly my favourites.
I still remember when I first met Ivy and Mike at a coffee shop in IFC, I felt both of them were rather cool and quiet. I was a bit worried because I was not sure if I could handle “cool” people well during the shooting. Luckily, by planning the shooting together, plus going “gown hunting” with Ivy (by my partner Sam), we got to know more about this couple and we finally noticed that they are really awesome!
Having 18 groomsmen and 9 bridesmaids on their wedding day, you can imagine how good person they are. Thanks Ivy and Mike for your trust, we gained not only a business, but also friendships with two genuinely nice people.
I still remember when I first met Elaine and Louis, they told me that they had already had their pre-wedding shooting in Korea. However, Louis thought the experience wasn’t that enjoyable because he was posed rather unnaturally. Bearing this in mind, I decided to instruct Louis for action instead of still pose during our shooting. Surprisingly, I found that Louis has very active “acting cells”!! He can actually perform naturally in front of the camera. I even think he is quite photogenic! I particularly like those pictures that were taken inside the country park around sunset, in which Louis and Elaine were jumping on the grassland with funny faces and motions. The sunlight from the back also created a warm and soft feeling.
Thank you so much Elaine and Louis, all the best for your wedding in this October!
