I know I'm mixing old posts and new works. The last few months have been crazy with a lot of work, travel and new challenges. During CNY I was in Spain and on my return I reviewed all the post still pending to be published and the entries in the portfolio that I had to add. There are a few and I promise to upload all in the coming weeks. Today I wheat the wedding of Mandy and Neil. They prepared something very special with family and friends. It was the kind of wedding that goes beyond the celebration is more an authentic party.
Welcome to Our Blog
Another cool wedding today here.
Tiago contacted with me to make the pictures of his wedding in Hong Kong. As in other weddings that I have attended in recent years, the logistics were a bit complicated. Tiago lives in Switzerland and his now wife Anfra in the Philippines. All the guests came from Portugal and the Philippines and had to organize everything from long distance.
When aronund a year and a half ago Vu wrote me to do a couple session in Hong Kong with Linda, I discovered that Vu and Linda will be that kind of special couples than become good friends very fast. Vu was very excited about the trip they were going to make from Canada to Hong Kong and wanted they to have some special couple photos. Vu had thousands of ideas and was excited about the session. Suddenly we had to change the plans slightly, because the couple session was going to be a little more special. They discovered a few weeks later they were expecting a baby! The session was a super fun experience and the photos perfectly describe how fun they are and how perfect they are.
I love the couple sessions. It is a way to meet my clients and capture natural and fresh images. When couples are as fun and friendly as Mandy and Neil, the session becomes a fun afternoon among friends.
We walked around the neighborhood, looking for iconic places and charming little spots. We were making jokes and getting amazing photos.
Our couples sessions are generally dating couples that are about to get married, so it is always nice to have the opportunity to be able to do different sessions, whether of anversary or any other occasion.
Today we bring to the blog a small selection of photos of the session we did a few weeks ago with Colin and Mable. Although they have lived in the UK for many years, Colin and Mable make a break whenever they can in Hong Kong. We plan the photos as a couple session in one of the most emblematic places of the city and we took the opportunity to make a few photos of his son Dominic who lives here.
Family Photos have something very special that keeps our memories forever.
In Spain, much of our work was linked to family photography and although we knew from the beginning that we wanted to offer this type of sessions in Hong Kong, we preferred to go step by step expanding our services as demand grew.
About a year and a half ago we came to live in Hong Kong and we definitely moved our studio to this part of Asia.
Since then, we have been fortunate enough to tell stories of dozens of couples, not only from Hong Kong but from the most remote places in the world. Canada, Australia, Thailand, Ukraine, Malaysia, UK, Singapore ... are just a few examples. It's been great to meet people from different places and tell their love stories, each one totally different. Each one absolutely magical.
Something curious has happened. Since our last wedding in Spain, we had not had a session with Spanish again. Maria and Salva came to change this. It has been great to meet such a great and fun couple. It has been fantastic to share jokes and be able to spend the day of the wedding with them and also in Spanish. A very special, intimate and fun wedding.
A couple of weeks ago we went to enjoy and make some pictures to the wedding of Vivienne and Mark.
The wedding was in Grand Hyatt in Wanchai in a very beautiful environment celebrating with all the family.
I told here a lot of times how wonderful is wedding photographer. Couples that starts as customers and become friends. Know a lot of new people and very different kind of people that share with you intimate moments and wonderful stories. All of this, making the thing you most love, capturing memories with your camera.
Other times, it's quite different like in this post. I know Vera long years ago. She is one of the best friends of Kelly, so for us this is very special session.
Vu and Linda came form Montreal to stay a few days in Hong Kong and take the chance to have an engagement session with us. Vu is all vitality. Linda is sweet and with a wonderful smile. Both are super funny and nice people. We enjoyed a long engagement session to say bye bye to 2016 around Victoria harbor and part of Kowloon.
Close to finish 2016 we have still some nice sessions to show you before starts the new year. This time I want to share with you the anniversary session that we made in Hong Kong with Jaysen and Celine at the beginning of December.
They were married 5 years ago and want to celebrate this year in hong Kong with a cool trip and a fresh photo session. Celine and Jaysen thinks that a perfect couple must to be always happy, together and in a continuous honeymoon. Is not a bad plan!
Even Celine run her own blog http://theforeverhoneymooners.com about their own experiences.
When Daria wrote me asking about be the photographer of her wedding she alerted me that the wedding will be something small and special. She was right. Daria is from Ukraine and Ben, his now husband, from Australia. They decided make a intimate wedding in Going Kong before go to live China. I loved their love story and I think we connects fast.
The wedding day was rainy and quite cold, but as usual this is not very important. Dasha and Ben were very happy and excited for the wedding and they enjoyed a lot during the celebration and the small session we made. Sometimes the only big you need in your wedding day is the love to share one each other, the rest could be intimate, small and wonderful at the same time.
Effie and Kevin has two weddings celebration. The first happened in Singapore as is the Effie's home country and the second one in Hong Kong, the place where they are living and the Kevin's city. If make one wedding is a hard job for the couple, I can't imagine two in just a few weeks!
We published some months ago the pre-wedding session of them here. You can see the portfolio entry of the engagement session here. Effie and Kevin is the kind of couple that enjoy together because they are natural and funny. I want to share with all of us a few pictures of their wedding in Hong Kong.
Last week, I met Beth and Jeff to make a couple session in Disneyland Hong Kong. They came form Korea to stay a few days here and that wanted to have a session inside the park. For Beth is Disney is even more special place than for the rest. She worked in the past in Disneyworld in Orlando and she is big fan of Disney. We enjoyed a very hot afternoon in Disney HK and I want to share with al of you a few pictures of the session. You can see clicking in "Continue reading" button.
I want to share with all of you today the slideshow of Yisan and Kevin Wedding day and some of the pictures in the Portfolio section.
Thanks and congratulations again! Yisan and Kevin are the kind of couples I like to have... Smart, funny and with a lot of humor sense.
