“When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew.”
When I first moved to Hong Kong three years ago, a very sweet guy I barely knew, let me 'have' his apartment (to myself!) until I was on my feet - one of the kindest things anyone has done for me.
I am forever grateful to the lovely Chris!
At the time, he and Lexi were best friends but it didn't take too long before they realized
their true feelings for each other.
They really are two of my favorite people on the planet!
Lexi has lived in Hong Kong for almost 10 years and when I first moved over, she introduced me to everyone and everything :)
I loved my first two weeks in HK (I fell head over heels in love with this crazy city) and she was a huge part of that!
These two are probably the most loved up couple I know and can usually be found smooching in the corner when they think no one is looking! :)
They are such fun to be around, and Simon and I, are lucky to call them close friends!
They also happen to live one street away from us, which is amazing!!
I always have fun when I have my camera in my hand, but this shoot was particularly great and there was LOTS of laughter!
We all love our Wanchai neighbourhood and I knew it would be the perfect backdrop for their shoot.
It is always so lovely to photograph people in a special or sentimental location.
It was boiling hot the day of the shoot, but we promised Chris that an ice cold beer was waiting for him at the end, if he smiled nicely :) hahaha... It totally worked!!
Thanks for being such rockstars, you two lovebirds!
“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it's the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It's probably the most important thing in a person.”
Danielle. Dan. Zoz. Daniwoo... Childhood best friend and constant source of inspiration and support!
We've been best friends since the single digit years and will be forever!
I recently had my bachelorette party in Hong Kong, and the thought of it happening, without Zoz in attendance, was simply not an option! :)
We'd been planning the trip for months and it really was the most incredible 10 days!
We laughed ourselves silly...everything is so much brighter and happier when Danielle is around!
As young teenagers, we would spend many an afternoon trying on outfits and posing for the camera.
We adored conducting amateur photoshoots and would giggle with glee, if the film camera had a spool of 36 rather than the usual 12 or 24 photographs! My, how things have changed!!
Daniwoo - you are such a source of love and light in my life!
You made my job so easy and I really feel I captured your beautiful spirit. I am thrilled with the results.
Love you xxx
Behind the scenes fun with Sean from White Box Studio!
Special thanks to Alexandra Lauren Designs for helping conceptualize the shoot and the costumes!
