Weekend recharge with Emi Wong & Chad in Phuket


Weekend recharge in Thailand

Hong Kong is quite hectic to live sometimes. We escaped to Thailand for our birthday! Emi Wong and I knew each other since university. We did from engagement style shoot in Hong Kong to her real engagement in Phuket! And surprisingly to know Emi and my birthdays are in January with one day gap. We gather in one of our favourite beaches in Karon Beach in Thailand for the engagement shoot with her cute fiancé Chad.

Last time, we did the engagement shoot in studio with Vera Wang‘s stunning gown in Hong Kong. This time, we did the shoot outdoor with the warm sunlight in Phuket under the UK’s designer dress from Zaeem Jamal from bridal shop Daughter of Eve Boutique in Phuket.

Why film?

Something new this time is we did the shoot on film! Emi has never tried in film and we explored something new each time. They have some questions in mind while I was loading my film:

Chad: Why do you use film?
Amy: The colour is different! When you look at the skin tone, it’s more accurate.

Emi: What’re the differences between digital and film?
Amy: First, light tolerance. For the sunny condition especially in the afternoon in Thailand, it would be way too sunny and the details from the digital data would be lost. But film has the tolerance to be able to keep the details when film can absorb more light to the film for further processing in the film lab.

Second, the texture. From digital, the photos would be more flat while for film, the photos would be able to include a rich range of textures and dimension, especially because I use the medium format film camera, in which the film sensor is a lot larger than the full frame camera.

Third, the colour. Skin tone is what we care the most as portrait photographers. We would like to make sure that the photos can reflect and keep the true colours. Plus the colour tones that oringate from film stocks, that couldn’t be manipulated easily.

Chad: What do you get after using film? Where do you send to afterwards?
Amy: I would then send my film rolls to film labs in the U.S..
Chad: Why don’t you do it in Hong Kong?
Amy: It’s not as good as those in U.S.! Hong Kong has amateur photo labs while U.S. has professional graded photo labs which they do at least 100 rolls a day yet they can still keep the consistency in colours.
Chad: Wao! That’s expensive!
Amy: Yea… But the colour is significantly better. I do have some clients who could see the differences, they do value the quality from film and happy to wait a bit longer for the stunning results!

Chad: Is there no more digitals in after using film?
Amy: There are two steps in film in the digital world nowadays. First, get the film rolls developed in the dark room. Second, scan the negatives to professional film scanners to turn films into digitals (jpg). So you can get films and digitals out from the files!

“When I look back to the day we met, I still see my favourite love story.”
Mark Anthony
Poet

Selena & Archer started their love from high school, to university, and decided to keep the faith under the witness of loved ones.

Selena is such a sweet and kind-hearted girl. Archer is witty guy, no matter where he stands, you can see people are laughing around him. It’s a memorable wedding full of joy! We keep the park nature at the wedding, from their garden wedding in UK to park wedding in Hong Kong. We use film to show the soft and dreamy colour tone on skin and the greenery.

The bride-to-be Elizabeth who is a beauty blogger is excited to have the designer bridal dresses sourced worldwide by the owner of Hitched Bridal, Dana, for two unique brands – Made with Love Bridal from Australia and Limor Rosen from Israel, with delicate details on the dresses made out of love.

The styling direction this time is to create a fusion of art and engagement with a touch on fashion. Our vision comes true when everyone is on the same artistic direction. We communicated with the makeup artist Janice Chu who loves the creation of work in simplicity and elegance too.
