Victoria + Adam Wedding - 07.25.2009

We almost missed this awesome wedding because of a minor problem. We consider ourselves lucky to have Victoria and Adam to be our clients. Their trust and love are priceless to us. When I told Victoria that we were going to shoot inside Skytrains, I expected her reaction: "Are you serious?". However, her answer was, "Don't make me too excited". At that point, I knew we had a right couple.

Again, thanks Victoria and Adam!

Ceremony: St. Francis Xavier Church
Reception: Pan Pacific Vancouver


Our future competitor

Canon 5D Mark II & NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED

After series of wedding shoots, we had a break in the weekend. Thanks to Brian (our associate photographer) organized the BBQ event. At the same time, I wanted to stay away from my work cameras. Therefore, I pulled out my ancient Canon Powershot G5 to play a bit. Although it's super slow, I like its 35mm f/2.0 aperture. It makes me feel like using 35mm @ f/2.8~3.5 on 5D.

If you follow my blog, you should expect our friend, Chadwick, to bring something interesting with him. Yes, he did it again. I expected to see his Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED on 5D Mark II (or 1Ds Mark III) for a long time. If Jessie and I were on Nikon's side, I'm pretty sure we would have that lens in our bags. For the price, it's a deal. However, the lost of auto focus on Canon cameras is a problem to our fast pace assignments.

Some grooms asked me about the matter about Nikon vs Canon. My answer is "We don't really care". Two brands made great tools for getting good images. I don't mind using D700 or D3 to work.

WPJA 2009 Quarter 1 Contest

Congratulations, Jessie! She won the 5th place in WPJA 2009 Quarter 1 photo contest, which is one of the world's leading photo contests. I'm really proud of my wife who've been doing this professionally for 2 years only. I think we should tell Katrina (in Hong Kong) about this news tonight.

Hey... back to work now. 2 shoots are coming in this weekend.
