Our 2017 in Review!

Sunset engagement photo at Discovery Park with lighthouse

2017 is another record year for us with 19 weddings and 42 engagement! I’m incredibly grateful I got to work with amazing couples, families and industry professionals in both Seattle and Hong Kong. Compared to last year, I did more shoots in Hong Kong and this has been quite a learning experience. It is much […]

After doing photoshoots in Hong Kong for a few years, I’m getting more and more questions on where to take photos here. So I’ve come up with this post on some locations and photos from my previous pre-wedding shoots. Unlike Seattle, Hong Kong is relatively small and hence requires some imagination and creativity to get […]

Warren & Fiona will be getting married later this year in Hong Kong, but they flew to Seattle to do their wedding photos since it’s so beautiful here! This is part two of their photoshoot, we also did a more casual shoot and you can check out their photos here!

I shot Mize & Kay’s wedding in Hong Kong a couple months ago and now they’ve come to Seattle to visit for a snowy post wedding photoshoot! That’s one good thing about hiring a photographer based out of both Seattle and Hong Kong! We ventured up to Snoqualmie pass to look for a some snow […]

Jaede & Jessie were so natural around each other that it makes my job incredibly fun (and easy)! Jaede and Jessie’s cross country love story started 8 years ago when they were both working in Beijing. However, they only started dating a few years ago and now, Jaede works in Singapore while Jessie works in Hong Kong. Every weekend, they […]

Most of my clients ask me for suggestions on engagement locations. So I’ve come up with a list of engagement locations along with sample photos! All these locations are within 15 minute drive of Seattle. Some locations are paired with day and night photos to show you what it looks like at different times of […]

Last Saturday I had one of the most fun family photography session in Hong Kong! Kevin & Jade wanted to do a family session in Central among some of Hong Kong’s most iconic backdrops. We also wanted to keep things as natrual and candid as possible (My favorite!). It also helps that Allison & Natalie […]

The locations for this engagement shoot is particularly meaningful for Phil & Stacey. 4 years ago, they had their first date at Pike Place Market while the Seattle Public Library is Stacey’s favorite building. When they first met, Stacey was still a traveling nurse but she stayed in Seattle for Phil. You might be able to tell […]

Mize & Kay’s wedding is the first outdoor wedding I’ve shot in Hong Kong! Mize & I actually went to the same elementary school in Hong Kong and we grew up in the same neighborhood. Being childhood friends definitely makes being their wedding photographer a lot of fun! You can also tell that Kay enjoyed […]

2016 Best of Weddings

Newcastle Golf Course Wedding

2016 is a record year for all of us here at Nick Leung Photography! This has been the busiest year yet and we’re so happy to have taken part in so many couple’s special day. Every time I look back at these photos, it reminds me  over and over again why I chose this career. […]

2016 has been another amazing year! In writing this blog post, I got another chance to look at all the engagement photos I took this year. I gotta say, trying to choose between thousands of photos was not easy! These are some of the best engagement photos from 2016. You can also check out best […]

We know finding a photographer is one of the most important decisions in your wedding planning. The relationship you have with him or her is also important as you’ll be with them the majority of your wedding day! That’s why I made this video so you could get to know me and my photography style a […]

When we planned this engagement session in Pioneer Square a month ago, we had no idea that a “storm of the century” was going arrive on this day. Even knowing this storm was going supposed to hit Seattle, Steve & Kerry were adamant on continuing with the session! I knew then I have some really […]

Osler and Susan are happily engaged but right now, Susan lives in Hawaii and Osler is in Seattle. So when Susan was coming to visit for a week, we scheduled a date to do their engagement shoot. With my Hong Kong trip in mid October, we were lucky to find a sunny afternoon that worked for […]

Right in the heart of Seattle is the little oasis Greenlake. Well known to joggers and dog owners, but surprisingly, not a lot of photographers come here for photos! When fall came around, this was a convenient and beautiful place for family photos! If you enjoyed this beautiful family’s photos, check out Jon & Anna’s baby […]

Thanh & Carly’s wedding at the Hall at Fauntleroy was one of the last weddings I shot in 2016 and also one of the most fun! Their laid back approach plus a super fun wedding party and guests made this wedding a blast to shoot! Please enjoy Thanh & Carly’s wedding photos below!

A couple months ago, I got an email from Edgar. Him, his girlfriend and her family will be taking a trip to Seattle from Guatamala and he wanted to propose here! Over the next few weeks, we planned out the locations and timeline via Skype. Since he will be with his girlfriend the whole time, […]

Newcastle Golf Club is one of the most beautiful wedding venues I’ve shot at in the Seattle area. Add that with a gorgeous couple, awesome family and friends, and we have a perfect wedding day. For those who are not familiar with Chinese wedding tradition, it is customary for the groom and groomsmen to prove […]

The Monte Cristo Ballroom in Everett is one of my favorite venues for weddings. It’s a full service venue and they keep their couples hydrated and fed at all times of the day! Drew & Michelle are also naturals in front of the camera. Add that in with perfect weather and we have some awesome pictures […]

When David & Sarah got married, they had planned for a helicopter to whisk them away for their wedding exit. But that plan had to be delayed due to rain. One year later, on their anniversary, they planned a visit to Seattle from Houston and wanted to take a helicopter tour of Seattle. What better […]

Part of why I love doing an engagement session with my couples before their wedding is so we get to know each other better. Last time we met, we did an amazing engagement session, so I already know their style & tastes, which made their wedding day that much more awesome. Their groomsmen and bridesmaids were […]

The weather couldn’t have been more unpredictable on John & Hoai’s wedding day! It rained on and off during the day, but having already met with them many times and done an engagement shoot, they trusted me with choosing the locations for their first look and photo shoot. Even with the rain, everything turned out […]

Danh & Hong could not have chosen a better day for their engagement session. My favorite time to shoot is a couple hours before sunset. That’s when the light is the softest and it also allows us to chose a second location for photos with the sunset. We started their engagement session at UW and […]

If you’ve seen some of my other work, you’ll know that sunset and night photos are my specialty! Some of my clients specifically request that part of their engagement session have to at night! Gaurav & Ankita had this request and the resulting photos did not disappoint! We started the session at Pike Place market and ended […]

The Quad at the University of Washington is famous for Cherry Blossom viewing in March. It also draws some serious crowds! Being a photographer who specializes in Cherry Blossoms is a good thing, you just have to get very creative so the crowds aren’t in your photos! Having a couple who’s so natural also helps. […]

Tom & Julie’s engagement session was too good not to put up on the blog! I’ve known Tom & Julie for awhile now. When they reached out with this crazy idea of blowing up a couple hundred balloons for their engagement shoot, I think I got more excited than they did! Check out this fun […]

Messay & Betty met in Ethiopia about 10 years ago. For a long time, they had a long distance relationship between Seattle & Charlotte until Messay moved to Seattle last year for Betty! When Messay reached out to me with his plan for marriage proposal, I was ecstatic. The planning, anticipation, and element of surprise […]

Eric & Maggie’s wedding was my first wedding of 2016! And I think I started this year quite successfully! I couldn’t have asked for better weather either. The ceremony was held at their church attended by their closest family and friends. The reception had some of the most sincere speeches I’ve heard and Eric’s son […]

2015 has been an amazing year for Nick Leung Photography. 19 weddings and 27 engagement shoots later, I am more confident than ever that this is where I belong. From the beautiful couples that I’ve had the pleasure of shooting, to the amazing photographers and assistants that helped me on my shoots, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with you. […]

Kay & Claris met in Hong Kong when they worked at the same logistics company. They had so many ideas for their engagement shoot we actually brought a suitcase full of props! We spent the first part of the shoot at a local park where we had the entire place to ourselves. Finding any place in Hong […]

I met Bee & Loan when they came up to Seattle for their engagement shoot! Even though they live in Denver, they have plenty of family and friends in Seattle. I’m so glad they chose me to be their wedding photographer! We started the day at Loan’s parents house for the tea ceremony. After lunch, […]

Boib & Wenny had gotten married a few years earlier, but never gotten a chance to take wedding photos. We started the photoshoot at Bailey’s Vegetable Farm in Snohomish Valley. They had picked this place because they wanted to have some unique wedding photos, and let’s face it, how many other wedding photos have you […]

The weather couldn’t be more perfect for Rob & Reilly’s wedding at Laurel Creek Manor. The partly cloudy sky made for a comfortable outdoor wedding. What made it even better was that everything takes place in the same venue, which gave us plenty of time for bridal party photos. Rob & Reilly specifically requested sunset photos […]

Bee & Loan are both from Denver but they both have quite a few family & friends in Seattle. We started their engagement session at the Woodland Park Rose Garden around sunset time and ended the session at Pier 66, where we took some gorgeous night photos! If you liked their engagement photos, check out […]

There’s a reason why they call it the golden hour, you really can’t beat the lighting! Sunny and Jules chose Discovery Park for their engagement shoot and it’s really perfect for what they have in mind. They also brought a host of props with them for their engagement shoot to make it a lot more interesting. Check […]

Ngan & Thai are possibly one of the most fun couple I’ve photographed! You can tell from their engagement photos they’re unique in their own fun ways! We started the session at the Seattle waterfront and moved on to Discovery Park for the second part. This is also one of the few engagement sessions I’ve […]

Let me just start by saying that this was the most epic sunset I’ve seen in Seattle. And Rodel & Kim picked the perfect day for their engagement session! The forecast from the week before has told of rainy days and nights, but Rodel & Kim decided to go for it anyways. And wow were […]

Abby has been a long time friend of mine since high school. I was thrilled when she let me know of her elopement plans at Pelindaba Lavender Farm in San Juan Island! The wedding is attended by the closest family members. Abby’s father married them early in the morning in the middle of a blooming lavender field. […]

Night engagement photos are my favorite and Seattle offers some of the best locations for this! On this engagement session, we went to some of Seattle’s most iconic locations, Chihuly Garden & Glass, Kerry Park, and Pioneer Square! Night photos itself presents challenges, but this beautiful couple combined with gorgeous scenery makes it all worth […]
