廣島初訪(一)御好燒物語

幾乎每次到訪的理由也是為了平機票,所以今次也不例外。

旅行前的小插曲是機票被改,據說這是快運經常發生的事,慶幸我首次遇到。還好改日子很順利,結果多賺了兩天,讓我探索這從未到訪的國度。(目前只欠四國!)

便宜機票中午才出發,還有機場不太近市區,搭利木津巴士出廣島駅差不多要1小時。沒排行程,就隨便上Tabelog找當地最有名的御好燒お好み焼當晚餐,居然找到間很近酒店!

原來那裡有個御好燒物語聚集了不少御好燒餐廳,很快就發現了目標!而且有不少日本人在排隊。不過白痴的我們不知道要先在名單上寫名,或跟店員登記,就直接坐在旁邊排隊。登記好還有英文餐牌(但有時日文的有漢字較易看明白)

Wedding Party in Ocean and Grassland 海陸兩地的婚禮派對

這是一個細節和人情味滿分的婚禮。一個婚禮,從來不單是一對新人的事。今次除了感謝Emily和Joseph安排的用心(和相當贊的品味!),還要感謝一眾兄弟姊妹的幫忙。

記得當我忙完上午的程序後,在等待更換婚紗時,我先請助手Ann到場地幫我拍一下照片。她一到下面立即致電給我,我還怕是不是有問題了,原來她在催促我快點去場地,因為不能錯過。當我忙完了到場地,已經剩不了很多時間,我第一眼看見的是「OMG!」這簡直是我夢想中的草地婚禮!場地的每一樣細節都使我愛不惜手!這個婚禮還有很多「OMG!」,Celeste的花球和晚上的海盜船The Bounty等等!還有一班超好玩超wow的兄弟姊妹們。

這是一個很值得Pinterest的婚禮!大愛!

This is a wedding with so much details and friendship. A wedding is never about the couple only. Thanks to Emily and Joseph’s arrangement, and lots of help from the bridal party.

I remembered when I finished the morning procedures and was waiting the bride to change to gown, I asked Ann to go to the ceremony venue for some photos. And once she was there, she called me. I was worried if there was something wrong, yet she just urged me to go there and said I cannot miss it. When I finally got there, what first came to my mind was “OMG!” This is my dream garden wedding! Every details I was in love. This wedding also got lots others “OMG!” – the hand tied bouquet by Celeste and the boat party at The Bounty. And I love the energetic bridesmaids and groomsmen sooooo much!

What a pinterest-worthy wedding! Love!

Quirky Halloween Wedding 鬼馬萬聖節婚禮

kayo-derek-halloween-wedding

這是一個不尋常的婚禮——沒有中國傳統儀式(只有婚禮和派對晚宴),沒有經典白色婚紗(取而代之的是灰調的),這對新人也不是尋常人(他們是我以前大學的大人物啊)!還有,這是萬聖節!!

有件事比以上的更驚訝,新娘很晚才發現她的場地居然不是她想預約的那一個(雖然這沒有影響我,但還是太吃驚了。)

這是一個超自由的婚禮。除了婚禮註冊儀式外,其他都很輕鬆很隨意,就像是家人與朋友在一起的派對。

最有趣的是婚禮儀式後的萬聖節晚宴派對!很多賓客都悉心打扮,讓我有感致身於於蘭桂坊的瘋狂派對中,我個人最喜歡那中國彊屍裝扮的一家人,連小孩也是彊屍裝!當然一對新人,Kayo和Derek也換裝了,他們變身成西式彊屍,一臉血色和嚴重黑眼圈,加上尖牙,相當神似!你以為只有年輕一輩喜歡萬聖節嗎?你錯了,他們的爸媽和親戚們也非常投入呢!

多謝Kayo和Derek讓我參加了這個美妙的萬聖節婚禮 🙂

This was an unusual wedding – no Chinese tradition (just ceremony and party dinner), no white wedding gown (a grey one instead), and the couple was not normal people (they are the faculty from my university)!!! Plus, it was Halloween!!!!!

Something even more shocked was that the bride lately recognized the venue wasn’t the one she hoped to book. (Although this didn’t affect me, I was too shocked.)

This was almost a free-style wedding! Other than the ceremony rundown which was straight forward, everything else was relaxing, like a party with family and friends.

The funniest part was the 2nd half of the day – the Halloween banquet. Many guests dressed up in awesome costumes which made me felt like I was in Lan Kwai Fong parties! Personally I loved the Chinese vampire family most. The couple, Kayo and Derek also changed their costumes and makeup for sure and they became the Western vampire couple. Are you expecting only the young generation enjoyed Halloween? No!! I can tell the parents were also sooooooo excited!

Thank you Kayo and Derek for such a wonderful Halloween wedding 🙂

Places I wanna go for photos: Hokkaido 我想去拍照的地方: 北海道

nikkiloveu-japan-hokkaido-family-travel-012

在部落格婚紗照看多了,發現了個有趣的小數據:男攝影師多數拍大日子較擅長,女攝影師拍婚紗較擅長。大概因為大日子的流程較緊湊,有很多緊急應變的挑戰;拍婚紗時間上相對較輕鬆,但也需要較多的準備。

這個小數據帶出我不是一般的攝影師(汗)我拍大日子的工作多很多,但其實我一直也很想多拍試婚紗或便服訂婚照啦!

今次我想分享我想去拍照的地方❤️當然我去過才推介了!這次是家庭旅行,就先把爸媽當模特了。照片都是隨意拍的,大家當純圖片遊記看看就好。

Since I read a lot wedding blogs, I found something interesting – male photographers are better in wedding day and female photographers are better in engagement. Maybe because wedding days are usually too busy, it’s challenging while something might suddenly goes wrong; engagements are relatively relaxing, but of course it takes longer to prepare.

This shows I am quite “unusual” lol Actually I work for big days way more than engagement, indeed I wish to take more engagements long long ago!

So, here I share some places I wanna go for photos❤️ Of course I recommend only if I visited there! This is a family trip so please count my parents as the sample model. These are just casual photos, feel free to read as travelogue!

Long distance came to the end 修成正果的遠距離戀愛

來自巴西的Roberio和來自香港的Cherry,18,274公里的距離也許有半個地球吧!微妙的緣份將他們拉在一起,在許多經歷後一起修成正果。

在盛夏裡舉行婚禮天氣很熱,可是我的心情比酷熱天氣更激動,因為這是我參與過的最感動的一個婚禮之一。婚禮裡的誓詞和致詞除了感動,還是感動,尤其當Cherry爸爸說要把女兒交給一個更年輕更強壯的男人時,這棵洋蔥快要讓全場都哭出來了。大家別要錯過下面的Video輯錄!!

還有當日Roberio的眼神令我很難忘。他隻身來到香港,為了最愛的人不惜放棄很多很多珍重的東西,但你看看他看Cherry的眼神,就知道他毫不後悔了!希望他倆一直幸福美滿地生活下去。

One from Brazil and one from Hong Kong – its distance is 18,274km! Maybe it’s already half of the earth! The fate brings two of them together, and finally they are married.

Wedding in summer was really hot, and the ceremony made me so agitated. This is one of the most touching wedding I’ve ever been. Speeches by family and friends were so touching, especially when Cherry’s dad said he was passing her beloved daughter to a younger and stronger man, that almost made everyone cried! Please don’t miss the video highlight below!!

Also how Roberio looked at Cherry was surprising unforgettable. He gave up so many things to come to Hong Kong alone – only for his love. You can see he had no regrets and he really loves Cherry. Wish them live for happily ever afters 🙂

Little Aidan’s 1st Birthday Party 小尚殷1歲生日會

早前新聞提及的45位BB生日會找攝影贊助,讓我想起以前拍過的15位BB派對,很抱歉只有3分1數量的BB。慶幸的他們都是良心家庭,有讓我和另一位攝影師多少吃一點飲一些。

尚殷BB是超級BB派對裡面的其中一位壽星BB仔,他媽媽Crystal是一位超用心的媽媽。比起大規模的生日派對,我還是喜歡這些小規模的。就在家樓下會所租一間房,大家一起佈置,又為尚殷送上禮物和蛋糕。大家就一起談談天拍拍照,最後一起切蛋糕。最簡單的,就是最窩心吧!

Last week a news mentioned 45 babies birthday party for photography sponsor, it reminds me my 15 babies birthday party… I was glad they treated me well. At least I have time to have a short break for food and drink.

Aidan BB is one of the birthday boy among them. His mum Crystal planned the party so well! Rather than big scale party, I love this kind of small ones. Together at the function room downstairs, friends and family decorated, gave gifts and cakes to Aidan. Had a good time to chill and laugh together. What an intimate party!

New Packages for Clients! 新包裝開箱文!

nikkiloveu-pack-photo-print-00

今日為大家隆重介紹新套餐裡的小禮物!

畢竟我這菜鳥完全算不上有名,能找到我的客戶都是緣份,甚至有些變成朋友真的很難得。希望為大家送上一份小禮物,感謝大家對我的欣賞和支持。

早前我挑了三位客戶朋友作白老鼠 😛 她們收到禮物都很高興啊!其中一位事前還毫不知曉,更是驚喜!現在就來拆解這份小禮物包含甚麼:

Today I would like to introduce the little gift in our new packages!

As I am totally not really famous, it’s a fate that clients could find me, and I even become friends with some of them – I feel really thankful. With this little gift, I thank them for appreciation and support.

A while ago I picked 3 clients for a trial 😛 Glad that they were excited to receive the gifts, and one of them is really surprised as she did not know she would get a mail from me! Let’s see what’s inside:
