Minimalist and Artistic Pre Wedding Photoshoot
Elegant, simple and extremely romantic, Grace and Jolly’s pre-engagement photoshoot featured a bit of the indoors and outdoors. The young couple was at their bashful best initially, and slowly began to play around with each other. I darted around lightly to capture all the best moments and crafted a lovely portfolio for Grace and Jolly, which I hope they will cherish forever.
White fairytale feel indoors
In the in-studio photo session, Grace posed in a ‘sea of white’, matching the pristine white of her sleeping gown and Jolly’s crisp white shirt. There were many moments of tender togetherness, some natural and others where the couple looked directly into the camera. In both cases, their love and attraction for each other was clearly visible.
The overall feel of the studio photos was one of gaiety, playfulness and a close bond. Grace and Jolly were excellent subjects, holding one another, gazing into each other’s eyes, and not shying away from a bit of touchy-feely romance. And although they did indulge in a pillow fight, they were always careful to be gentle with each other. Now there’s a compassionate and caring couple!
Trying out different angles of shooting was a highlight of the studio engagement photo shoot. The idea was to spotlight both Grace and Jolly, capturing their expressions together and singularly.
Chic and artistic vibes outdoors
The pre-wedding photo shoot was simple, amalgamating the couple’s love and Hong Kong’s artistic locations. Grace and Jolly were at their romantic best, with a few photos showing Jolly in quiet contemplation while the smile never left Grace’s lips.
We chose two locations: Tai Kwun and Pottinger Street. Tai Kwun is among Hong Kong’s historical buildings and situated at the site of one of the most significant revitalisation projects in the region. Pottinger Street is a street in Central Hong Kong, whose distinct trademark is its unevenly paved granite stone steps. Both locations juxtaposed the old with the modern, providing a picturesque and artistic backdrop for the lovebirds.
While the indoor photos conveyed the feel of a serious couple preparing to spend the rest of their lives together, the outdoor photos showcased a love-struck couple in the throes of youthful passion. Here too, Grace and Jolly posed naturally, almost as if they were unaware of me behind the camera (and I’m grateful for that!).
The black and white effect enhanced the creative and romantic feel. The cherry on top of the cake was the kiss shared by the couple on the stairs. I can’t wait to meet Grace and Jolly at their picturesque Marina wedding!
