Vancouver Wedding Industry Brunch 2018

Merry Christmas! First of all, I had to thank for the vendors who made this event happened. It wasn't an easy job for CC Roa to organize it. At the same time, all vendors were very busy but they still spent tremendous efforts in this event. (My photography part was relatively easy)

  • LIFE Studios Inc. for Videography
  • Raymond and Jessie Photography
  • Koncept Events for the Gold Chairs
  • Stephanie and Eric of Box Not Box for the City Skyline design.
  • Gold Fish Media and Photobooth Rentals
  • Debut Event Design for the Pipe and Draping of Stage
  • Balconi Floral Design Studios for 3 Floral bouquet gifts.
  • La Glace Ice Cream for the yummy treats and ice cream 
  • Fusion DJ for the cool groove music.
  • Flower Factory for the 3 centrepieces in the Reading Room.
  • Making Memories by Stationary for graphic designs and specialty papery designs.
  • Niche Events Stylists for the 100 Single Rose Gifts 
  • Thanks Chef Ned Bell for the culinary tailored menu for this event.
  • Katie Briscoe, Vancouver Club’s Director of Catering, for allowing us to hold this annual holiday get together for our Industry family.
  • Warren Dean Flandez and Crew- for the awesome live entertainment. 
  • Last, CC for planning and Team ROA, Jamie, Scott, Lucy, Alena, Cecilia, Lovely, Darian, Olaf, Justin, Sarah, Bruce, for their floral and event designs magic.
Other than good food, gifts, photo booth and music, this year's Vancouver Wedding Industry Brunch had great performance. Mr. & Mrs. Santa visited us and brought us some presents. I hope we can do this again next year.

*Because of some rush jobs and family party preparation for Christmas Day, I'm super busy this week but I finally post the brunch photos before Christmas. Thanks God!

See you next year!

Huawei Mate 20 Pro vs Olympus OM-D E-M1: The Travel Cameras

Jessie just got her new Huawei Mate 20 Pro cell phone. It had many interesting camera features such as the crazy night mode and 16mm ultra wide angle lens. Tonight (Day 2), we went to play with the phone at Olympus Oval. At the same time, We brought our travel camera Olympus OM-D E-M1 (with Viltrox EF-M2 0.71x AF + Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6) instead of Canon 5D Mark III as fair comparison.

*Jessie didn't choose 40 mega pixel mode but 10 mega pixel mode by mistake*
*E-M1 photos processed by Adobe Lightroom 6.14 (by Raymond)*
*Mate 20 Pro photos processed by Adobe PhotoShop Express Android version (by Jessie)*

E-M1 (m4/3 system) didn't have good ISO performance was a fact. However, its IBIS was a great thing for travel photography. We could take sharp photos at 1/3s shutter at most of the time. Tonight, we used ISO800-1600 + f/2.8 and hand-held in the low light environment.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro's Night Mode operation was like... Press the shutter and hold it for about 3 to 4 seconds. Of course, the photos were not professional-like quality but they are 80-90% quality of E-M1's (even at 10mp) on screen. Mate 20 Pro's photos were totally usable for leisure.

Surely, Mate 20 Pro has the ability to take much better photos (than this day 2 photos) after we understand more about its camera feature. We will show you more when we can get the most out of it.

Vicky + Allen Wedding

Every year in Vancouver, weather became very unstable after mid September... almost no exception. However, we didn't worry too much about Vicky & Allen's wedding. We expected to be a rainy day. Night time in Gas Town was beautiful when the floor was wet. Reflections of the light from below made interesting photos.Our plan was taking some night photos outside the reception but the rain fall was really really crazy during the time. Then we had to wait until almost 10pm to take those night photos. It wasn't as easy as before because Vancouver had more and more visitors in recent years. People were still there even weather wasn't good.

Our Christmas photo shoots are coming. We will be busy before 24th. Stay Tuned!
