When Maiko and I first met at our studio late last year, she wanted to have a surprise portrait session with her and her husband. They had only recently married and moved to Hong Kong from Tokyo, but did not have wedding photos. I photographed their post-wedding session around Hong Kong's Central district and also their wedding dinner which I posted on my event photography blog.
I love when couples ask me to shoot an engagement style portrait session with them, even though they have already gotten married - although the "big" moments of the wedding day have passed, sometimes all that matters is having beautiful portraits together, even as newlyweds. Post-wedding sessions can be a nice change of pace, especially here in Hong Kong where the wedding day can be a busy and tightly scheduled production that doesn't always allow for relaxed and casual photo taking.
Susanne and Marcel had done a destination wedding in Italy with a local photographer several months prior, but wanted to take better photos in our photosession together. They have lived in other cities in Asia, but wanted to capture iconic Hong Kong - wearing their original wedding dress and tux.
