Jennifer + Jimmy's Pre-Wedding + Engagement Session

In the past 3 weeks, we almost shot a session every other day. Backdrops, cameras, and batteries are everywhere in the office. Totally in a mess!

Jennifer & Jimmy's session was an interesting one. We started with a fashion style and slowly got them into the relax mode. It was because Jimmy was a bit shy (what Jenn's said) on the day. We finished this session a bit faster because of the temperature dropped a lot after sunset on that day. Our mighty decorator, CC Roa, told me that Jenn and Jimmy's wedding decoration will be super nice. We can't wait to see it on their big day!!!

Lisa + Benny Engagement Session

Vancouver's weather is very unpredictable. However, rains can be a surprise element to a photo shoot. At the end of Lisa and Benny's e-session, rain suddenly came from different directions. The wet ground gave very nice reflections of the lights. It made the night shots even better.

We finished 3 photo shoots (25+ hours) in a weekend. Before next shoot, we had 2 days' rest... This blog might be updated a bit slower in the coming weeks.

My Gift From Tim - Iron Man Mark VII iPhone 5 Case

I'm very excited to receive a gift from TT Films' Tim. He got this iPhone 5 case for me from Hong Kong's Hot Toys. Hot Toys is a very famous company in making action figures.

Taking out the case from the box. The case is made in plastic and painted with high quality metallic paints. The body is actually Iron Man Mark VII. Just in case you don't know which one is Mark VII... It's the one Tony Stark using at the end of "The Avengers" movie.

Fits perfectly on iPhone 5

I think you want to see the arc reactor works. The case directs iPhone 5's LED flash to the arc reactor. You can activate the feature of LED flashing during incoming calls. Pretty cool when someone call your phone...

Obviously... I'm not going to use this case daily but putting it on my shelf. Thanks again Tim!!!

Theresa + Mike

First of all, we have to thank Theresa and Mike for their trust. Before we shot this session, I reviewed the meeting notes. "Cool + Fashion" & "Let us fly" were what I wrote at the end of the meeting. Actually, Theresa & Mike are also a professional photographer couple. This session was for their wedding anniversary. They shot very good photos but quite different from our style. I questioned my meeting notes for a few seconds but I trusted my memory and my notes (That's why I still write notes on paper instead of typing on iPad).

We also have a plan to get one photo (maybe a few more... Jessie with her long wedding gown) before our 10 years anniversary. Our pre-wedding photos were shot in Hong Kong. Style is very different from ours but I really like the one hanging on wall. Similar to what Theresa & Mike wants, we want to have an enlargement for our living room which is not only different from our pre-wedding photo and also different from what we shot for clients. We are still brainstorming...

It seems like people like my OM-D review although my writing skill is bad. I will try to write another review for the new "Art Line" Sigma 35mm f/1.4 later.
