Why is photography a big part of weddings? For what is, for most people, the biggest day of their lives, having someone capture those special moments between you and your loved ones will help tell stories of your journey, and create memories that last a lifetime.
During a time where amateur photographers on social media reign supreme — couples creating wedding hashtags to keep track of photos posted by their guests is now the norm — we’d argue that having a pro on hand is more important than ever. Check out our curated list of Hong Kong’s best wedding photographers and their work below.
Ali G Studios
This studio is run by Ali Ghorbani, one of the best-known photographers in Hong Kong specialising in weddings, pre-wedding photos, as well as society and corporate events. He has tons of experience shooting Chinese, Indian and western weddings — and is well-versed at capturing those special, unexpected moments.
Hong Kong-based photographer Amee Cheung travels worldwide with brides and grooms, shooting weddings and pre-wedding photos everywhere from the rolling hills of Tuscany to Fukuoka in cherry blossom season. For romantic wedding photo inspirations, check out her Instagram page.
Binc Photography prides itself as a studio that captures “honest moments in all love stories.” From shots of your engagement and pre-wedding photos to sweet, candid images from the wedding day, Binc can snap the best moments along the way.
Cadenza Studio is named after an Italian word meaning the “most beautiful and virtuous part of a concerto,” frequently used in classical music. The team aims to preserve memories and emotions from weddings, in Hong Kong and overseas.
Dennis Mok Professional Photography
For romantic photos of you and your special someone with stunning facades of Hong Kong, Paris and other destinations as a backdrop, look no further than Dennis Mok’s services.
If you’re on the lookout for someone who can create imagery of you and your loved one that also showcases the beauty of Hong Kong, check out HK Fotog’s work. As well as wedding photos, the photographer is also experienced in working with Cantonese opera performers and shots that capture the essence of the city.
Julian Wainwright Weddings
Award-winning photographer Julian Wainwright switched gears from working as a photojournalist to shooting destination weddings across Southeast Asia, where he is based. He has worked with couples tying the knot in Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, Cambodia, Laos as well as Bali, Guam and Hawaii. His vibrant, colourful photos seize the sweetest moments from the wedding while also showing off the beauty of the destination.
Le Beuf Studios
Specialising in wedding and family photography, Le Beuf Studios are pros at finding intimate moments from throughout the day. Think loving shots of couples stealing a glance at each other, a wedding party relaxing with a pint before the ceremony kicks off, and moving shots of the first dance.

From a couple’s first look on Santorini to another’s embracing in Jeju, Mary Ann Art & Photography’s team has shot gorgeous imagery with Hong Kong brides and grooms the world over. We love the studio’s candid shots of brides grinning from ear to ear.
