Lasting love | Valentine’s Photoshoot for Boston University

We work in collaboration with Boston University (BU) to cover on Valentine’s photoshoot for BU couples around the world.

It’s truly an honour to capture the love story between the two lovebirds Jane & Steve, who now lives in Hong Kong. They shared how they got together and shared their secrets for long-term relationships for us.

What interested to you for your husband?

We met in a Christian church fellowship on campus & became really great friends; we both had a common vision to go back to Asia & impact the people there instead of living the ‘material American dream.’ Steve is totally opposite in character. His strengths of great adventure, confidence, honesty, pioneering spirit & easy going nature balances out my weaknesses. Really grateful for his leadership & innovative spirit.

What interested to you for your wife?

Jane is the most joyful and committed Christian that I know. Her love for God and people attracted me the most and that deep down I know that somehow we were meant for each other! She fully supports us with a quiet & gentle spirit in all our missionary journeys without complaints or criticisms.

What is your key to long term relationship? 

Definitely a shared dream & passion that is greater than day to day issues of life; our common vision to impact people lives keeps us outward focused & calls us higher to continually reflect & devote ourselves to personal growth which in turns feeds into a healthy marriage & family life.

Spending consistent one on one time each week, clear boundaries & honest communication, giving each other forgiveness & more grace when we encounter friction; lots of laughter & travels together; ….these are some of the keys for our 32 year marriage.

“Thank you so much again for your work, passion and friendship. We really had fun and your work is amazing.”

Coloane & Baroque Elegance | Melly Woo

Under the influence of Portuguese culture, we could see a mix of coloane buildings and some architectures with Baroque and European colonial buildings.

Although it was a cloudy and rainy day, we manage to take some photos under the beautiful architectures together with blogger Melly Woo.

Monet-Inspired Engagement | Phoebe & Jean

“What keeps my heart awake is the colourful silence.”
– Claude Monet

Little Stories the Moment by Amy Phoebe & Jean Hong Kong Monet-inspired Engagement

We are a big fan of Monet’s Impressionism painting and it’s poetic to see the photos blown up from the imaginations. Blending artsy aesthetics into photography is such a beautiful thing on Earth! Thank you, Phoebe & Jean for having trust on us to go ahead with the artistic direction.

Phoebe is my high school friend and we’ve known each other for years! She is a sweet and considerate girl. Her fiancee, Jean, is sweet and calm. He has grown up in France and eventually chose to stay in Hong Kong for Phoebe! We chose this French heritage building of over a hundred years to witness the romantic love of the two lovebirds.
