Pillow talk between gals is always attractive, you know, so sweet and warm.

Can u feel the happiness?

I really love this "Upside Down" perspective, like I was taking the photo from top.

Cutie Ducks!

Sweet.

Traditional yet elegant.

I could always feel that they couldn't suppress their excitement and happiness, see!?

Tea Ceremony!

Let's Hip-hop!

Will the construction workers complain us?

Come on, B&W again, and very tasty, yum yum.

I love the lens flare.

I really don't think wedding photos should be very complicated, but photographers should have a sophisticated mind to lead the couples to accomplish the task, i.e. to be themselves and let themselves talk in the pictures.

Yes, yes, good S shape.

Cool, be a basketball player!

haha, love is to lean-on .

How natural and childish this photo. Love it much!

I made something special for the Gene & Sam since they performed very good on the day and I was trusted by them much, I prepare 2 sets of continuous shots at the "跳飛機" and to put the shots in motions at the end of the same day slide (即日片). Don't miss out! And please do give me some comments!

Gary Li Wedding Same Day Slide (Flora & Andrew)

Flora & Andrew are the Chinese Doctor. They share the same profession and share the optimistic characters together. There're times that I find Andrew just couldn't hold up his naughty and playful minds, but when he came to see Flora at the first sight in the morning, I could read his " WOW" ! Let's enjoy the photos and the same day slide.

Heidi & Leung Wedding Day Slideshow

Clients: Heidi & Leung

Wedding Day: 4 Dec 2009
Preparing Same Day Screening Slide becomes part of my photography life, especially on wedding days shooting. With very less time, (approx. 2 hours), I have to choose the photos, calibrate them and to do some retouches. And in order to reserve the high quality and smoothness, I gotta use the video editing software. This makes me stress and hurry some times. 
I will try to do some more same day screening since my clients love them a lot and this is the motivation.
Cheers!

Mei & Joseph Wedding Day

Clients: Mei & Joseph

Wedding Day: 18 Nov 2009

Venue: The Upper House + Hong Kong Country Club

Goodmake-up in the morning made Mei happy.

It's not hard to find a good perspective to get the Gown hanging straight and with the right lighting.

Prasing from the bridesmaids.

Rap by Joseph and wtih the nice dancing with his friends.

Which hand is Mei's? you can figure it out very easily, not taken by one camera but 2!

A Long Kiss!

Mei chose this hotel, The Upper House because she was amazed by the interior architecture and we decided to capture some good shots in it before moving to Hong Kong Country Club.

A grand shot!

Nice sunny day at Hong Kong Country Club. But actually it was the coldest day of 2009, 12 degress! Everyone was freezing!

Shooting before taking steps to the ceremony.

Another shot.

I sticked my face to the gound to get the position and perspective right for this photo.

A candid flowers shot.

Blessings from God.

Everyone enjoyed the moment, let's step back and to see the whole picture!

Marching-out represents a newly weds is ready to get along hand in hand in the future!

Hugging!

And the moments alive!

 

Cheers and Congradtulations!

Mid-term Evaluation of Gary Li

2009, is a remarkable year of me. Getting an award, getting change for my post production and photography style, having a good figure of no. of jobs and variations of job; Wedding, Expo, Events.

I received an e-mail yesterday and the client-to-be made me think about myself and my career.Here's my answer to his requeston elaboration of my photography.

Dear ….,

When I was reading your email, I started to prepare the essay in my mind and fianlly I found myself in photography, and recalling the feeling and point of view on " Wedding Photography" .
 
I love my style of work, as it's long-lasting. I love to freeze the moments and the scenes that happen on wedding days or occasions. I love to get them freezed at the most precious moments, and to let them to grow after the photos are developed. So I think my photos are living and breathing as time goes by.
 
For every picture I take, I would like to give them a description or illustration itself but not a single wording. Story-telling is the easiest term to give it a definition but I would try so hard to make it more sophisticated.

Hope the passage above let you understand more about my photography.

Here's an editorial from Wedding Magazine, July 2009.

Pre-Wedding Shooting (e-session) of Nancy & Kelvin

Nancy & Kelvin (e-session)

Photos are taken in the hot & moist late June. We (& Danny, my Lighting Expert Assistant) were sweat like wet pigs… But got some very good shots and thanks for Nancy and Kelvin's tolerence for the hot weather and the repeated actions (All I wanna do is to get the most impressive and good shots)

We Started at 1881 Heritage

And Shanghai Tang…

Then we drove to the most crowded MK, there should be another good shot taken besides HSBC, I reserve that to the last, to match the theme that Kelvin inspired me about the pre-wedding shooting series.

Then- – – -> Goh Nan (果欄), many young couples love to take photos at this venue, I would like to make some breakthrough on the standard ones.

Lovely adverse lighting accompanied with the metallic gates.

Use of frame; it's a 卡板 .

Fashion Models.

Use of  direct flash. We have to hatch back to basic! Don't make the flash to complicated, do it straight and it's stylish too!

 

Brides love the classic ones…

Classic still goes on…..

Another example of Use of Frame…

A Yellish + Vintage Shot.

A great end-point at Central.

Shooting in the summer for pre-wedding is really a hard job, but you can taste our energy and creativity all the time. We overran for more than 1 hour that day, it's simply because I wanna wait for the best moments to do the great shots. Get ready to sweat like a wet pig, and get ready to follow my harsh instructions and the game will be started!

 

Elements of Love

Elements – is a concept that from China. With the 5 elements, the earth and every creature made.

And surely it could apply to Love and the legend of Yin Yang.

1 + 1 = 1 I love this formula.

Blessings from Mon's mom.

A stunt shot by Lui, the photographer work with me for over 9 years.

Ya, ready to leave the bride's home.

W Hotel is a natually set-up venue for wedding shooting! Amazing lighting and decoration.

Even in the lift…

Or the W wall at the main entrance.

When we proceeded to The Elements, the suitable and trendy elements continued to appear. Thousands of pictures came from my brain.

A great shot by Lui.

Hand in hand, step by step.

Watermark, a romantic restaurant, even it's with dimmed lighting.

Simple decoration is good enough.

The lovely couple.

The dramatic moment for beautful Monica.

The Marching-in. Please notice that the backlighting was created by Danny.

Look at Monica's reactions after Edmund presented his hand-knitted scarf.

Followed with a BIG HUG!

A top shot while playing a Same Day video screening by Gary Y.

Beautiful sisters of Monica.

Everyone was touching about Monica's sisters speech. Can you see the happy tears in their eyes?

We, Gary and Lui, always pay attention to people's emotions and facial expressions. Thanks Lui for helping me to take thousands of great shots in these years!
