Jinhua wedding photography by Hao Pan - Zhejiang, China WPJA

As a wedding photographer for three years, shooting about 80 weddings. I used to be a hip-hop dancer before. If the wedding ceremony is compared to a song, the common place of hip-hop dance and photography is that I interpret it in my own way. Taking some unforgettable moments is like making some great moves when dancing, and I have always been keen to take unique moments belonging to the new couple. Every wedding is unknown and unique. I hope to leave unforgettable memories for each new couple. [Jinhua Wedding Photographer]

Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding. However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more

While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way. For a good chunk of the population, any number of the typical wedding day traditions can inspire anxiety and existential dread. This day is all about you, yes, but does that mean all the attention has to be on you as well? FROM VOWS TO CHITCHAT, WHICH REMAINS SACRED? Traditional weddings often require some degree of performance on the part of the couple, whether that is in the form of reciting...Read more

So your wedding is just around the corner and you’ve decided to elope , either because you want to do this on a budget , avoid a large wedding party, or simply to enjoy the day together with minimal distractions and as little stress as possible . They say 'all you need is love', but where exactly can you afford to trim the fat, so to speak? You want simplicity, but you also want to be properly married and, surely, to remember this occasion.

WHAT EXACTLY DOES IT MEAN TO ELOPE? If you look up the definition of “elope” in the Merriam-Webster dictionary , you’ll find a plethora of meanings making it quite clear how polarizing the word has become, and how it has transformed and evolved with the passage of time and even personal preference.Read more

Everyone always says that your wedding day is all about you. But let’s face it; that’s not always actually the case. Many couples stress over guest lists, planning, expenses, and all the frills and traditions of your standard large wedding that they may or may not even be interested in. Fortunately, though, the concept of small weddings is becoming increasingly popular for couples who either want to be able to completely customize their day where and when they want with the option...Read more

It is really the most wise decision for my wedding to be a photographer.

Shan & Zoe

Photo by Leon Wong

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!
