Canny & Calvin pre wedding photo shoot in Hong Kong

Hong Kong pre wedding / Canny & Calvin pre wedding portraits!

I am pretty terrible with updating my blog and it was pointed out to me recently I have not posted much from Hong Kong… yikes, I know…but I have been pretty busy – thankfully…

Canny & Calvin epitomize many Hong Kong couples: young, hip, successful and world travelers. Calvin is also into cars (like yours truly) and with a modified and sport tuned Mercedes that is the kind of car you dream about flooring on the autobahn. Though in Hong Kong it is a bit under utilized to say the least.  Our first location is a favorite of mine: Stanley or “Chek Chue” is a tourist town East of Repulse Bay and west of Shek O. It is also a wonderful location for capturing portraits of these two along the beautiful bay and Canny really stood out with her red dress.

After a few portraits along the breaking waves we went on a short trip through the old market before heading off through the winding hills to a place to Calvin loves, a very scenic vantage point overlooking Hong Kong.  The location was quite stunning with the city as a backdrop and Canny was having a great laugh as Calvin proposed to her on his knees – in front of the car of course.

As Hong Kong was especially warm that evening, we decided to head down to the waterfront near the Mandarin Oriental. Funny enough I counted about 6 or 7 other couples using this spot as a location for their pre wedding portrait and why not when you have a skyline like this? But feeling a bit crowded  we walked towards what can only be described as one of the most beautiful waterfronts in the world where some of my favorite images were captured.

The cool thing about Canny & Calvin were how chilled out they were and how much fun they were on the session. Hong Kong couples tend to be quite reserved but when you encourage them to run off and do their own thing they very much come alive. But like all good things this session had to come to and end. Personally as much as I love New York I simply adore Hong Kong and have been lucky to be brought back and look forward to going back next year. But what really makes cities great are the people – and couples like Canny & Calvin make this ‘job’ all the more fun.

To Canny & Calvin it was a lot of fun creating these beautiful portraits. On behalf of my team, we wish you both much love, happiness and future success in your new lives together as husband and wife.
