We have photographed weddings all over the world, but this Hong Kong engagement session was a first for us! Most of our engagement sessions take place in the United States, with our big travel reserved mainly for weddings. It was such an exciting opportunity to photograph an engagement session in Asia, with an extremely different environment and street scenes than we are used to! It opened up my mind to new compositions and heightened creativity.
Wendy and Lincoln met in San Francisco, but traveled to where Wendy grew up in Hong Kong for their engagement session.
I (Ryan) grew up with Lincoln, so the trip with my old friend made it even more special. The street life in Hong Kong at night is so vibrant. Every corner, every street and every building reveals the essential characters of the city. I was endlessly inspired by all the colors, the energy, the sounds, the sights, the many layers of life.
We experienced Wendy’s favorite street food in the Dai Pai Dong food stalls. We visited Lan Kwai Fong, the Causeway Bay and the Central District, and soaked up every minute of these enthralling places. I grew up in mainland China myself, in Beijing, and I always look forward to going back.
Congratulations Wendy and Lincoln. I am so excited for your lives together. And thank you for trusting me and bringing me along for such an important milestone in your lives! I will never forget the amazing adventure we shared during your Hong Kong engagement session.
