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?
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
Hope you can find/ have found your love and we would love to capture your little love story to

Reading becomes a bigger part of life when we grow. Be our accompany to experience the world together. We selected our favourite books to showcase this time with you by artist and illustrator Oliver Jeffers.
Diving in the world of book is so much joy! Do you read with your baby? It means a lot when you engage with her/ him and explore the new world together.
That is to experience ups and downs, learning new things together, as a magical experience.
With the emergence of smartphones and tablets, we are using smart devices for reading more often and we are moving away from paper.
Will screens replace paper in the future?
We explored the issue with Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups, check out on photo article below written and captured by us on “Future Reading: Paper or Pixel”.

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.

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.
