Dear Ronnie, we just finished reading all the photos. They are awesome and bring back all the memories. To be honest, I have had many hiccups organizing this wedding but I am so blessed having to know you. The pictures are truly beautiful, I am out of words showing my thankfulness other than these two words. Thank you once again Ronnie. The photo film is amazing too.

Ronnie, thank you for being our photographer and documenting our wedding in Hong Kong. We are thankful for the communication and the way you try to understand our wants in the consultation process. The locations you scouted for us were aptly chosen and fit well with our story and background. The candid moments you captured in our homes, the banquet hall, and on the streets of Hong Kong gave us much bragging rights and most of all, the perfect way to cherish a special day. We are also thankful for the extra effort you took in creating the custom-made memory drive and photo box. Thank you very much.
