Wedding Stories

無論能見度好與否,有陽光沒有陽光也好,只要不放棄,總會有不同感覺的作品。很喜歡這種漂浮的感覺,在無重下拍攝,所有東西都會飛來飛去,最難控制的是頭髪和衣服,但最難控制的地方很多時就是畫面美麗的重要元素之一。

巴黎是個充滿文化藝術氣息的浪漫之都,相信不少情侶在挑選prewedding的拍攝地點時,都會將其列入考慮清單中。其實隨著巴黎四季的氣候變化,在不同的時節到當地拍攝都會有不同的效果。照片中的Katrina與Ronald透過私人預約,於11月初到了巴黎進行拍攝。此時的巴黎已經踏入秋季,四處都能感受到清涼的空氣和微暖的陽光,非常舒適。一對新人就在前往下一個拍攝地點時,恰巧經過這個地方,整條街道都鋪滿了金黃色的落葉,加上背後雄偉的雕像,油畫般的美景吸引了攝影師的目光,於是便就地取材,在兩旁高聳直立的樹徑襯托下拍下這幀照片,一對新人仿如置身於童話世界中,十分甜蜜幸福。

There is a funny “myth” that boyfriends should never tie their shoelaces in Paris, especially under the Eiffel Tower, otherwise your girlfriends might think you were going to propose! It is not hard to get the reason as Paris is the city of love so all you act would be full of romance.🙂

With this romantic vibe all around this city, Victor and Vivian chose to shoot their prewedding photos here. There is her putting on a blissful and smiley face, standing in a fancy red dress, while Victor is kissing her on the cheek gently. Under the tough and cold silver structure of the bridge, there is an even stronger contrast to set off their passion and happiness. Even the glittering golden Eiffel Tower cannot help but look at them with admiration from the other side of the River Seine.

The shooting experience of them was simply a gift from heaven. Without rushing from one landmark to another, we wandered in the city of love with fun and captured some random and unique moments. However, less is more. All in a sudden but in an exact timing, they met the steel bridge with the soft light on. It was just like how a couple bumped into each other at one point in their life journeys. It was all by a chance of luck.We immediately made a move and shot this magical moment that gave rise to this beautiful and harmonious photo. A photo is never merely a capture of moment, but a capture of memory and this Paris trip must be a good one!

在室內還是室外拍pre-wedding才好呢?事實上,各有各特色,如果是studio拍的主要是人,而外拍重點就在於把人和影融為一體。有很多客人為了令這一生中最重要的時刻更完滿,他們更會兩輯也拍。

很多想試試新形象的人就會選在Studio拍,因為在studio中,衣服、化妝、肢體成為了主角。我會和客人一起協調服飾和肢體上的安排,令客人可以以更多不同的形象示人。就像2007年香港小姐冠軍張嘉兒小姐,她平時給人的感覺都是高雅美麗,但為了令她的pre-wedding相片有意目一的感覺。我讓她特別穿上黑色的婚妙,高貴中帶一點性感,加上配合她白亮的皮膚,整個效果更是比預期更佳。

諾貝爾文學獎得主約翰斯坦貝克曾經說過:“波西塔諾是一個夢鄉。你在時,她不很真切;你離開後,她變得栩栩如生。”到了波西塔諾(Positano)進行pre-wedding和wedding的拍攝後,我對這句說話的體會更深。客人預訂了整個懸崖邊的草地上舉行婚禮,背著山,俯瞰著一望無際的大海。這景象真的美得有點虛幻。如果要在我的拍攝身涯找一個最美麗大自然景,我想這個會是數一數二的美景。

兩位客人的婚禮雖然無論在舉辦上或是拍攝上得都並不太花巧,一切從簡,他們也只邀請了方數位親朋摯友,著重的都是和親朋好友的交流。但當日的情景卻如波西搭諾一樣,幸福得如童話般夢幻。我希望一對客人都可以從相片中看到那像波西搭諾一樣栩栩如生的永恆。

I believe every girl has a dream of being a princess and living in a grand and magnificent castle with her prince charming forever. However, in reality, this could only happen in a sweet dream. That does not mean you cannot create your own fantastic experience and memory like fairy tale! Vivian made her dream come true in France!

Arriving to this magical place from Paris in about an hour, Vivian put on a white ball gown from Noel Chu, which is the most romantic among all bridal silhouettes, standing in front of a grand and solemn castle. The soft sunlight from the blue sky shines on her rosy cheeks and the glamorous voluminous skirt with petticoats.

Dressing like a princess and feeling the noble and romantic atmosphere with her love one, doesn’t it a girl’s dream come true?

Victor and Vivian went away from the crowd in Paris with me, heading to this outskirt of the city to shoot a unique album.  Unlike those enormous and famous castles in Prague and Paris where tourists were all round, we spent a joyful afternoon shooting in this peaceful castle under perfect weather. With no doubt, this is just how a true fairy tale reckoned! This shooting experience is simply special which every girl should experience once in her life time!

For celebrating some moments in our lives, we may want to dress ourselves up and take some memorable pictures. All we want is a unique, exclusive piece of momento that we can recall that precious memory when we grow old. Every girl would want her prewedding photos as special and exquisite as possible as it is an indication of her entering into another stage in her life.

Therefore, Vivian went to a castle near Paris to take her prewedding photos. Not only could her enjoy the green nature, but also turn into an adorable elf in the tunnel of trees. Standing in the one-shoulder Noel Chu apple green gown, Vivian puts her hands on the layers of chiffon petticoats which is just like an inverted flower. She is perfectly merged into the forest, even the tall trees bend and stretch their branches to reach her, the delighted and lively fairy who hangs around on the grass. Different elements, no matter the gown, tender grass or towering trees, or, were drawn together so harmoniously in this photo.
