As a wedding photographer for three years, shooting about 80 weddings. I used to be a hip-hop dancer before. If the wedding ceremony is compared to a song, the common place of hip-hop dance and photography is that I interpret it in my own way. Taking some unforgettable moments is like making some great moves when dancing, and I have always been keen to take unique moments belonging to the new couple. Every wedding is unknown and unique. I hope to leave unforgettable memories for each new couple. [Jinhua Wedding Photographer]

So your wedding is just around the corner and you’ve decided to elope , either because you want to do this on a budget , avoid a large wedding party, or simply to enjoy the day together with minimal distractions and as little stress as possible . They say 'all you need is love', but where exactly can you afford to trim the fat, so to speak? You want simplicity, but you also want to be properly married and, surely, to remember this occasion. Who, then, could be more important than...Read more
It’s no secret that these are strange times we’re going through right now, and there are many couples out there with weddings set in the near future who are left feeling uncertain and concerned about their futures.

WHAT EXACTLY DOES IT MEAN TO ELOPE? If you look up the definition of “elope” in the Merriam-Webster dictionary , you’ll find a plethora of meanings making it quite clear how polarizing the word has become, and how it has transformed and evolved with the passage of time and even personal preference.Read more

Oftentimes when people are considering a venue for their weddings, they search for a location away from home, whether that be ten minutes or ten hours, all just to find what they already have: a place that holds meaning for them, that feels comfortable, or that they find special and memorable. But what could hold more memory, meaning, and importance than your own home? For those looking for that perfect venue, it may not be any further than beyond your threshold.Read more

While some people live for the hustle and bustle of a big wedding with extravagant décor and an impossibly long guest list, others find these kinds of weddings to be too much hoopla, preferring instead something simpler and quieter, allowing for more intimacy between them and their fiancés on this special day.

While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way. For a good chunk of the population, any number of the typical wedding day traditions can inspire anxiety and existential dread. This day is all about you, yes, but does that mean all the attention has to be on you as well? FROM VOWS TO CHITCHAT, WHICH REMAINS SACRED?

It is really the most wise decision for my wedding to be a photographer.

Shan & Zoe

Photo by Leon Wong

Thanks to the LEON WONG team, you are my first team, and the ps wedding is still undecided. Like the photos you take naturally, like a hidden invisible recorder, or the kind of lens is everywhere. We didn't take a wedding photo seriously, and there was no travel in the shed. It's because I don't like wedding dresses. It's very boring and unnatural. Most of them don't see the feelings of two people who love each other, even the face can't remember. For me, the best shape is all live broadcast on the wedding day. The best scene is to be close to friends and relatives. I and Shan are just like each other. This requires a very professional team. Because the live broadcast does not have NG. It’s not like a wedding photo, you can’t come back, miss it and miss it. It’s hard work for you all the time, and you’ve been keeping a high level of tension until the end. There are a lot of expressions, only one or two seconds you have captured. Thank you, Teacher Huang. I sat alone at noon and remember to help me with a cup of hot coffee. This time I introduced, many of our friends and relatives have become your loyal fans. I said that you are so low-key, the work is great!
