A warm, beloved and memorable wedding day! Really grateful that we could be your photography team at this special moment, as a friend know for more than ten years and it is so warm that I can met many good friends again during the wedding.
The weather is very nice all day long. We choose to use the natural light in the reception and tea ceremony to gain a most natural and warm images.
During the outing shooting, it was really busy at the seaside park, the weather is still very nice but not too sunny, so that the light is really cool for photo taking.
For the banquet and the ceremony, we set up 2 background flash, to ensure that we would not miss and memorable moment. As a father of a daughter, I could feel that how a father could miss his adorable daughter, it was so touching to see Gillian and her father march in, I almost couldn’t stop my tears coming out.
At last, we hope that you will like our capturing of those wonderful and beautiful moments of your Big Day!
Every part in this village may disappear soon, due to the extension of the railway (MTR) construction. Just three years ago, when I am still a ‘camera player’, I went to here to take the sunset photo of the Victoria Harbour, the sea become golden, parents bring their kids to the seaside and enjoy the precious magic moment in summer time. Time flies, but thats the beautiful picture always in my mind. After I came to Macau, I couldn’t find a same village with such lovely hut, traditional local store, lighthouse, seaside and grassland. I am so happy that I can help Candy and Ivan to take their engagement photos here. Candy and Ivan like vintage style: Beatles, Film shooting, Wooden box, Cola bottle, wooden hut village…we can find all the elements here. Special thanks for the shop keepers of the local store, they are very nice to let us took photo in their shop, you can feel ‘love and relationship’ from them, which couldn’t find in chain-store. At last, thanks god for the excellent weather, we have a nice evening here. Time to enjoy the photos! Here we go!
The natural light is come from both side, so that we can get some moody pictures.
The making of no. 1: A small reflector hand held by Tony, this is for compensate the darker side of the face, compare with the bright golden background.
The Making of no.2: A small reflector hand held by Tony, it can highlight the face of the couple, make them brighter and happier.
I love their wedding so much, they put many vintage items in their wedding: Coca cola bottle, “Cha Chan Teng” -Hong Kong style teahouse cart seat, White rabbit candies, Dim sum……and The Beatles songs! They decide to use this vintage theme, because Emily’s family own a Cha Chan Teng in Macau for many years, and this theme let the wedding full of love and memories with family.
Touching moment between Emily and her mum.
Crazy groom mate
Lei got fever before the wedding day, he almost can’t speak that day, but he still finish to sing ‘愛你不分早晚’ according to Emily’s mum order. Thats make all of us laugh.
This boy is another old member of Emily’s family, look at his eyes, he miss his friend so much.
Lei’s cover Emily’s ears from the loud noise, another touching moment.
The special guess.
Love this blooming background so much, another good timing to come to here.

In this wedding I try some new lighting setting that make the photos more bright and natural.
I use one flash behind my camera thats lighten the back of the bride, it makes the photo more similar as what we see from our eyes.
A flash on the top left hand corner of the photo, light up the bride face and make the photo more balanced.
Usually, the apartment light is much weaker than the daylight from the window, a flash inside the house can make the photo more balance and more “crystal clear”.
I would like to say thanks to many people to create in this photo: the groom mate driver, they make those vehicles in a team form. My lighting assistant on the front seat. Thanks for their trust and corporate, so that I can take this photo.
Four flashgun were used in this photo, 2 back light, 1 lighting assistant(in the opposite side of the camera), 1 on my camera to compensate the shadow on the face of the bride and groom.
3 backlight, 1 flashgun on my camera to create some “foggy” style and clear face image,I love to catch this beautiful moment to save a beautiful memory.
This photo is taken at Sai Van of Macau, the air quality is not really good at that day, so that the light is a little bit soft and this would be good to take photo. We use one reflector to fill up the shadow of the groom and bride. Let the bride to lie on the edge of the Sai Van reservoir is a good way to present the details of the dress and also get the trees, water reflection and long pave way into the frame. I love this photo so much, how about you?
The test from the devil We take this photo at Penha Church in Macau, the couple under the pink tree represent they are blessed and protected by the God. At the back a shadow of another tree is represent the … Continue reading →
