Anne and Jean-Marie's Engagement Session in Hong Kong


One of the downsides of living in a vibrant, transient city like Hong Kong is that too often people come and go. Such was the case for Anne and Jean-Marie, who after only a short stint in Hong Kong were returning to France late last summer. Bittersweet as it is returning home, Anne wanted to capture a bit of the old and new to commemorate their time living here in Hong Kong. So we set out to wander around the Central area, and ended up shooting in Lan Kwai Fong, Hong Kong Park and IFC among a few others.

Thank you to the talented Ka Lam for the makeup for this shoot.

I first met Natasha and Ben over drinks in Central, nearly a year ago. Even for a Friday at the end of a long work week, Natasha was overflowing with energy which I later learned was completely normal. Ben, who is from the Midwest, told me about how Natasha, who is from HK, and his career path had lead him back to Asia years after they had first met as students in Inner Mongolia - first Singapore, Vietnam and eventually Hong Kong. Its crazy the stories that are behind how many of us find our way here.

Natasha and Ben LOVE Hong Kong, so last year when we planned their engagement session it wasn't hard to come up with some locations.
