Family Session @Steveston



Other than shooting weddings in this Summer, we had some family sessions done under the beautiful sky. Steveston was the best location for family with elders and young kids because of the short walking distance and chairs were everywhere. Another reason of my choice was for the Hong Kong family visiting the museums after the session.

More blog posts are coming. Stay tuned!

Will We Buy Canon's First Full Frame Mirrorless Camera: EOS-R?





There are lots of reviews and opinions about EOS-R online. You can just type "EOS-R" in YouTube and it will pop out many videos about it. If you follow our blog, you should know we are Canon shooters from day one. Olympus OM-D mirrorless cameras are mainly for leisure use. We love our OM-D's very much but they are not quite ready for wedding jobs, we think. With IBIS, we can capture a lot of interesting photos that 5D series can't do when tripod isn't available or size/weight is a problem at the spot. It would be great if Canon made something like a full frame OM-D E-M1 (We wished this for years).

So... EOS-R is a disappointment? Mm... It is... but not totally.

However, if we treat it like what 6D Mark II should have, then we see EOS-R differently. Besides EOS-R is missing the most important thing (IBIS) in our wish list, the touch screen focus (when using EVF) and the crazy number of AF points are what we need. Another thing is the battery: LP-E6 which is 5D2/3/4 battery. We have a lot of LP-E6 in our bags. It will save us $ on new batteries (if we go for Sony A7 III). Canon's Flash RT system can be used seamlessly if we "upgrade" to EOS-R.

We have to say Canon is very smart. The purpose of EOS-R is for stopping the last batch of loyal Canon users switching to Sony A7/A9 or Nikon Z6/Z7. At the same time, EOS-R only hurts 6D Mark II's market a little bit. It won't affect Canon's video camera line, 5D Mark IV, and the most money making APS-C line. As many people predicted, DSLR should be dead in 5 to 6 years later which is two Canon's high end product cycle. We think Canon will cut 6D and 5D line soon (or no 5D Mark V next year).

In conclusion, we may get A7 III if we need a replacement at this moment. When Canon breaks the chains of DSLR, EOS-R system will catch up with others.

Esther + Tim Engagement Session



We almost missed our blog update for the whole summer because of the busy schedule. Today, we updated it with the engagement session of the couple married on August 18, 2018. The original booked wedding on the day was postponed for some reasons and we had an empty spot for a sudden. When we thought we would be taking a day off from the busiest day of the whole wedding industry this year, we got their inquiry.

Esther wanted to have sunset shot in the session; therefore, we started a bit late about 7:30pm. We had to make sure we got the shot at the right time and right place (A bit stressed). After sunset, we took some magic moment shots in a slower pace. The next challenge was getting some finished photos to the couple before their wedding because of the tight schedule.

We will post their wedding in this blog very soon. Stay tuned!

*Recently, Canon is going to have their first full frame mirrorless camera line "EOS-R". We are not too excited about it when we saw the leaked photos of those "R" lenses with IS and non-IS versions. It hinted EOS-R might not have IBIS like what Sony A7 III and Nikon Z6 had (Not cool...).

Let's see what will happen on September 5.

Diana's Newborn Baby Session




Right after Diana's baby arrived, Raymond returned to shoot the the newborn session. It was always fun to shoot maternity session and then maternity session. Without baby/kids, you can't see/feel time as an adult. When we looked at the old photos and the new photos of the families, we found it very interesting.

JUNO Vancouver 2018's Decoration by CC Roa



In the JUNO Vancouver 2018 weekend, Raymond went to capture CC Roa's decoration for the event. He had to finish the task before the events started. CC's flower decoration for JUNO was great. She did a fantastic job especially on the day had to be no flower... Just green. Everything matched the sponsor TD Bank's green. Amazing.
