Okinawa Prewedding

We’ve known Gilbert for quite some time now; he is the older brother of a previous client and we’ve had the pleasure of getting to know him over time.  He’s a very charming, very talkative character and so finding out that he was going to get married was a fantastic piece of news, especially since they chose us to shoot their wedding!

Even though we’re not that close with Sham, our first impression when we were introduced was that this was a very elegant, slightly quiet lady.  After spending time with her and Gilbert for the shoot, we found that Sham is definitely a lovely match for Gilbert and very charming herself!

Sham is blessed with very good bone stucture – very model-like and putting her in front of the camera produced some interesting images.  She’s a beautiful bride and we love the photos that came from our trip to Okinawa.  Originally we had a few concerns that staying at the beach would give us very little wiggle room in terms of creativity however we managed to get a lovely set of images that showed what a beautiful location can become when you have a lovely couple to photograph!

Napa Valley – Samantha & Mike

samantha-mike-overseas-wedding-napa-valley-us01b

We have always said, to be witness to one of the most memorable moments in a person’s life is one of the best perks of our profession. Our work takes us to many different places, gives us many different experiences and we treasure each of these precious moments that our clients share with us. More importantly, if a client then becomes our friend, that memorable moment then becomes even better. Here, we are talking about Samantha and Mike.

We have known Samantha for many years. She is one of our very best friends. It is quite a strange story, how we became her wedding photographers. We met through work, but friendship grew out of that even though we didn’t see each other very much. However whenever we did meet, the feeling was like we were old friends. This sporadic friendship gradually resulted in us shooting her wedding in the famous vineyards of Napa Valley, California.

It wasn’t a very big wedding, probably only about 30-40 of their closest friends and family. The venue was beautifully natural, and comfortable; simple and elegant with so much love present in the day. The ceremony took place in the afternoon, under the most beautiful lighting, and definitely made us very emotional, never mind the bridal party!

We would like to take this opportunity to let Sam know: to find someone you can happily live the rest of your life with is such a wonderful thing but it is made more wondrous by your friends witnessing the moment of your union. We all wish you and Mike the most genuine, the purest form of happiness and luck. Love each other, take care of each other, we are so happy to have been with you at this time.samantha-mike-overseas-wedding-napa-valley-us02

Pre-wedding in Lake Como, Italy

This shooting took place a few months ago. Finally, we are near their very anticipated wedding day.

Firstly, we would really like to thank Skylar and Michael for trusting us and taking us to Lake Como to shoot their pre-wedding portraits. It was our first time shooting there – a very beautiful location. We’ve been many a time to England and France to shoot pre-weddings and Lake Como had a very unique chemistry that cast a bit of a spell over all of us. Since we’d never been before, we had our concerns, however the trust our clients placed in us gave us a great boost – we are so pleased with the results.

Lake Como is such a beautiful place to visit. The weather is beautiful, the surroundings are peaceful and there’s a great sense of self and beauty when you visit the lake. We chartered a boat and shot many portraits on the water itself.

Here, we would like to say that we think Skylar and Michael have a great future in modelling – should they decide to change careers; especially in Michael’s case. He is very attuned to the camera and it was a new and fun experience for us when it came to his turn in front of the camera.

We also visited London to take some more portraits. As Londoners, Skylar and Michael took us to many new places in London that we had not visited before. We’d like to thank Skylar and Michael for their kindness and for arranging such a wonderful experience for us. We also look forward to shooting their wedding day and we very much eagerly anticipate shooting their wedding anniversary portraits as well!

也許國內對這對香港人人所知的新人以及他們的父母了解比較少。朱李月華,在美國嫁給朱襖裕,當年隨著丈夫一起來香港打拼,在香港證券行業以及房地產行業都有自己的一片天地,現為香港保良局主席、香港金利豐集團總裁,並且有自己的教育慈善事業,香港人也因此都叫她朱太。

新郎朱俊浩Kingston也是一枚青年才俊,他不僅是瑞士經典名表Franck Muller亞太區副主席也是Sincere Watch的副主席。新娘Kelly從小在音樂世家熏陶下長大,會小提琴鋼琴,並且會說多國語言,現是香港出名的室內設計師,自己還在業餘的時間在香港劇場參與跳舞。當然這次的婚禮設計也是由自己一手操辦。

由於宴請各界名流,整個婚禮的設計很隆重卻很有自己的風格,婚禮主題的是“Enchanted Forrest”寓意為被施了魔法的森林,這是作為室內設計師的新娘Kelly自己定的,場地遍布花卉與植物,整個暖色系的搭配也為婚禮增添了甜蜜浪漫的氣氛。

這個星期天也就是11月15號,新人會在香港會展中心筵開150席宴請香港政商界以及娛樂圈名流。而當天會展中心婚禮的設計不論是喜帖、食物、佈置還是節目都是由新人一手操辦,不僅星光熠熠、盛大隆重、還不失設計之感,也讓香港的婚禮超級令人期待。

JohnnyProduction十分感謝新人及其父母的信任,我們不僅拍攝了屬於他們的愛情微電影,還被邀請拍攝了盛大的蘇梅島婚禮以及接下來香港會展中心婚禮,11月6日蘇梅島的婚禮已經圓滿落幕,現在一起來期待11月15日這個星期天的婚禮盛事吧。

Korea Prewedding

silvia & johnthan korea prewedding01

During the summer, we were lucky enough to fly to Korea to shoot some pre-wedding portraits.  This shooting was extremely memorable for several reasons.  Firstly, the moment we came back from Korea, the news came of the SARS illness occurring in Korea.  We were quite concerned then, obviously, but luckily we were not affected and did not need to be quarantined, although we did get a bit of a cold!

Another memorable event was that we were very honoured to be able to arrange the formal Korean clothes for our pre-wedding portraits session.  It was definitely an unforgettable experience because we got to immerse ourselves in tradition.  Our bride is half-Korean and we were very lucky to get permission to visit some beautiful heritage sites to shoot their pre-wedding portraits.

We love the portraits that we came away with – we like to think that we definitely captured the Korean spirit in these images and enjoyed the trip so much.  Thank you to our bride and groom for this opportunity and for arranging all the special events.

World’s Top 30 wedding photographers

World’s Top 30 wedding photographers

Johnny Productions is proud to announce that Susan and her work has been named as a World Top 30 Wedding Photographer, and is the only female wedding photographer in Hong Kong to be included on the list.
We have never been very active when it comes to competitions; it’s enough for us to know that our clients love our work. Having said that, we recently posted some photos that we really loved online and was lucky enough for our work to be recognized with an award. Our priority still is to shoot our clients’ weddings as best we can; winning prizes are very nice, but not our ultimate goal. We are very happy to have received such an award and a great boost in our belief in our ideals and work ethic.
