Elopement Photographers for Small China Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small China wedding event is a wedding photojournalist’s dream: a fairly open schedule with lots of breathing space for creativity – it’s just the photographer, the couple, the officiant, and perhaps a few select companions.

We are anxious to create a picture story chronicling your unique, boutique, outdoor, small wedding from beginning to end. In this sense, it is no different from any other event that we have covered.

We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions. However, as people cut back on non-essential little luxuries here and there, one constant remains: weddings. People don’t tend to just stop getting married due to a poor economy, nor should they!

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND China WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER RECOMMENDATIONS

Kate & Dom

To John and his wonderful team, Thank you so much for your amazing work. I can’t thank you enough for doing such a great job at capturing the memories on our special day, just the way we liked. Thanks for being so understanding and completely flexible on the day. We were probably one of your most chaotic clients (we know that) but your team’s and your calm presence was exceptional. We never felt pressured for once on the day and you just went with flow. All the meetings I had with you before the wedding were informative. It was a great idea to have met you properly before the wedding. We absolutely love our videos and the pictures – they bring us back to the day every time we see them. I particularly love how they capture the happiness and emotions of our friends and families, they are priceless and we can’t wait to show them to our friends and families from overseas! John, sincerely thank you again for making our wedding day so memorable. Your creativity and special ability deserves to be recognized. I have no doubt recommending your service to all of my friends and families and I’m looking forward to future collaborations with you and your great team. Best wishes, Kate Chow

We are so glad that we found you to be our wedding photographer because you are so friendly, professional, and responsible. You and your team worked wonderfully with our other film/photography crew, which was very important for us because we had three different groups of photographers/cinematographers. You are very professional and communicated with everyone very well so we never had to worry about crew getting into each others way. You were very responsible, always on time and sent us the final photos very promptly after the wedding. You also were really patient with us whenever we had questions or needed his help. You never seemed irritated or unreliable or unreachable, always happy and quick to reply to my messages. Most importantly, you took beautiful photos of our wedding day and captured all our happy and emotional moments. This made us feel very comfortable and ensured we captured all the essential family photos that we will cherish forever. Your photos were very real and natural and we love them very much! We are so glad that we hired you to be our wedding photographer and would highly recommend all our friends and family to book you as well!

Thanks to the LEON WONG team, you are my first team, and the ps wedding is still undecided. Like the photos you take naturally, like a hidden invisible recorder, or the kind of lens is everywhere. We didn't take a wedding photo seriously, and there was no travel in the shed. It's because I don't like wedding dresses. It's very boring and unnatural. Most of them don't see the feelings of two people who love each other, even the face can't remember. For me, the best shape is all live broadcast on the wedding day. The best scene is to be close to friends and relatives. I and Shan are just like each other. This requires a very professional team. Because the live broadcast does not have NG. It’s not like a wedding photo, you can’t come back, miss it and miss it. It’s hard work for you all the time, and you’ve been keeping a high level of tension until the end. There are a lot of expressions, only one or two seconds you have captured. Thank you, Teacher Huang. I sat alone at noon and remember to help me with a cup of hot coffee. This time I introduced, many of our friends and relatives have become your loyal fans. I said that you are so low-key, the work is great!
