Weekend recharge with Emi Wong 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:

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

Emi & Chad - Phuket Engagement - Film - Little Stories -26

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.

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..

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 clients who could see the differences, they do value the quality from film and happy to wait a bit longer for the stunning results!

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!

Growing love from Paris | Lifestyle Home Session

“La vie est une fleur dont l’amour est le miel,”
Victor Hugo
French poet

(Life is like a flower of which love is like honey.)

Growing love from Paris

With baby girl Fleur (meaning of Flower in French), we can feel the lingering love all over in this family under the magic of “honey” in Victor Hugo’s word.

Rooted the seed of love from Baby’s name

Although baby Fleur is from an Australian family, baby Fleur got a French name as her parents Gabby and Tony got engaged in France back then! They named their baby as a way to celebrate and remember their engagement in France. It’s like a living fairy tale!

Let’s get drowned in love of this love story…

Shared parenting activity: Read with kids

We have so much fun in reading and playing with Fleur! Gabby shared with us that she loves reading, so she’s delightful to read over the stories over and over!

So we moved on to cover her reading and her parents reading to her! What a sweet memory to look back in future!

Precious Family Time at Beach

We enjoyed a lovely morning in Repulse Bay for the shoot, at G&T’s favourite beach conveniently located with car parks, and some quality time to build around the “Eiffel Tower” – as G&T’s beautiful memories as engagement together!

I wish someone has taken pictures for me when I was a kid with my parents! So I know how much they love me ever since and then I would treasure the moment a lot.

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.

Valentine's Photoshoot with Boston University - Jane & Steve Anniversary

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.

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

Kind Words from Jane:

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