Choosing the right wedding photographer is the perfect way to immortalise a ceremony — and Hong Kong is home to a few of Asia's finest. Ranging from moody dramatics to tenderness displays of love, there's a diverse range of styles for every happy couple.

A stalwart in the Hong Kong wedding scene, photographer Ann Choi is well known for her playful, ethereal style. Professionally trained in the US and Germany, Choi can adapt her distinctive voice to whatever her clients desire — black and white images, day or night shoots and even destination weddings. As a member of Weddings and Portrait Photographers International, she's a certified photo and editing pro.
With over a decade of experience behind the lens, Dennis Mok is one of the world's leading wedding photographers with a number of incredible clients, international awards and credentials to his name.

Award-winning photojournalist Henry F. is favoured by Hong Kong couples for his deeply emotional images. With his simple yet effective composition and preference of natural light, there's a distinct honesty to his photography that sets him a cut above the rest: the photojournalist finds his moments, rather than creating them. Beloved by a number of wedding tastemakers ranging from Simply Peachy to The Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photojournalist Association, his work speaks for itself. Drop him a message to see if he's in town, as he splits his time between Hong Kong and Vancouver.
