All fun aside, here we have some of the most touching moments of the day.  As a photographer, it is my personal honour to document all the stories and emotions around me.  I certainly would not know the detail of the conversation, but I do know my eyes were watery behind my camera, when I see a young man shedding his tears and sharing his laughter in his grandma’s arms.

OK, this is not me.  This is one of the picture I took during our portrait session.  And seriously, at my very first glance on this guy, I really thought that was my dad, especially by his “unique” hair style.  But after looking at his then kids, then I finally have my sigh of RELIEF!  I mean … come on, there’s no way I have younger brothers like that! =P
