Chris & Fang | Pre-Wedding

(California)

一看到Roger的照片,不禁有些眼前一亮,原來拍婚紗還有這樣的選擇。特別是那些穿著便服的情侶似乎在做生活日常的照片,穿著素淨的便服,和另一半打打鬧鬧,一個眼神,一個微笑,這些細微的捕捉打動了我。是啊,於我而言,我需要的不是浪漫的場景,也不是華麗的衣服,而是想要記錄我們兩個相處的瞬間,在這個年紀的我們相處的模式。我也有些好奇,自己和另一半的相處在相機下是怎樣的,我們是怎樣的眼神看對方,怎樣笑,怎樣鬧的,畢竟平常不是常常有相機在記錄我們的一顰一笑。恩,就是他了。

後來和老公商量,就開始連繫Roger和Kelly,很意外的他們在我們回台灣的時候有空可以幫我們拍,我們很開心找到自己的首選。 Roger在拍攝前有和我們視訊了解我們的喜好,想要的樣子。 我們回台灣,碰上了颱風天,於是Roger建議我們把時間提前,我們下飛機就趕去挑婚紗,改衣服,然后第二天就開始拍婚紗。前一天,Roger說就把他當成我們的一個朋友,只是在和我們一起玩而已,順便拍了一些照片。我們就照做。整個過程很順利,也很開心,大家像超人一樣提前完成了這個拍攝。 那天最讓我感觸的是大家的敬業吧,Roger提前一天就把拍照的點踩透透,還跟我們建議了新的地方,看得出來他很熱愛自己的工作。

一直以來都很羨慕很早就有熱愛的專業然后一直追逐下去的人。碰到這麼有熱情的團隊,會讓我反思我自己,也希望自己能夠做一行愛一行,慢慢地越來越樂在其中。

Kan & Shirley | Pre-Wedding

(Hong Kong)

Hi, this is Kan and Shirley, we are from Hong Kong SAR, and clients of Roger Wu in 2013. Back then, we were very keen to look for an outstanding photographer to take our pre-wedding photos in Taichung. Since we already knew where exactly we wanted to have our photo shooting in terms of venues. Hence, at the beginning we were just searching online for photographers in HK. Perhaps when we were doing the online search, the website cookies knew our destination was Taiwan; therefore, the search results featured both HK & TW photographers and we found Roger Wu’s website: http://wustudio.tw/wp/ . Of course to us, Roger Wu is the most outstanding one among all. We saw his past photo samples and his hard work via its website and Facebook. The main reason why we chose Roger is because we like the ways he took photos with unique angles and styles, not exaggerating but calm and decent. Then, our pre-wedding photo shooting journey started from there….. ^.^

Our Sharing on the Preparation

We are from Hong Kong while Wu Studio is based in Taiwan. Thus, Kelly & Roger had suggested us to do a few conference calls to prepare for the pre-wedding photo trip, and also to discuss items as such in which styles, positions, postures we preferred, and so on. We are indeed very thankful of having Kelly & Roger all the way from the preparations till the end products came. Since we are a couple who are quite undetermined, and indecisive and Wu Studio on the contrast is very well-planned, detail-minded, and always knowing what is the best for their clients.

They did great preparation on understanding our expectations by giving us samples to discuss. From there, we started to find our own styles and preferences bit by bit, such as our themes, color tones and desire postures when taking picture. We truly appreciated the way that Wu Studio had prepared and done for us.

To simplify my pre-wedding trip experience, I’d say – with the Wu Studio, you can be inspired and guided by them in an amazing way.

惟恩 & 孟樺 | Wedding Day

謝謝你們的照片,它們忠實的記錄了當天的氣氛與感動,透過一張張的播放,我們又再度回到當下。還記得婚前,大家總是努力提醒我們:「當天什麼也別想!享受當下,用力記下每個畫面!」但美好的時光總是過的飛快,有許多的畫面已有沒有當下清晰。透過這些照片,真是讓逐漸模糊的記憶重新恢復,甚至替我們從不同角度挖掘出更多我們所漏失的畫面。實在感謝!

何謂攝影的本質,這是個發散的題目,沒有確定的答案。攝影當然可以由藝術的觀點討論各種美學要素。但看了你們的照片,我認為由紀錄的角度切入可能會比純藝術更有意義。如同Kelly所說:「人之有趣在於每個人觀點不同。」我想攝影亦然,按下快門的瞬間同樣是攝影者自我表述的過程。影像的紀錄當然不只用相機取景,攝影者的主觀意識的投入才是主宰一張照片最重要的元素。謝謝Roger與Peter,透過你們照片,我們充分感受到你們真心的流露,更感受的到你們的祝福,這是最棒的攝影作品,我們親身感受!

謝謝你們,給予我們的不只回憶!

Dear Roger, We just saw your amazing pictures and the only words that came out to us was: WOW!!! So much …

Aimee & David | Engagement  | Pre-Wedding

(Seattle)

因為當Carol伴娘的關係(感謝Carol!),在因緣際會下認識了Roger和他的團隊,當時就覺得如果有機會和台灣的攝影師合作, 一定要將他們列入參考人選之一!

還記得那天在中山捷運站的Starbucks結束和Roger、Kelly和Emma的討論,Roger在討論時和大衛信心喊話說"請把我當成是你的朋友,放心的交給我,我們會輕鬆愉快的拍照"之類的話,大衛一走出門就開玩笑的說"我只有三個朋友!" 讓我到拍攝前一直都很緊繃, 深怕惹大衛不開心將來的日子會不好過(笑)。

經過幾天和Roger和Emma的相處,送他們到機場後回家的路上,大衛竟然和我說"以後只要拍照找Roger拍,我都願意拍!" 我整個不敢相信這種話會從他嘴中出來,認識大衛的人都知道他對事情的要求標準不是一般般就好的啊,很滿意這次的拍攝結果,很幸運我們就遇到最好的工作團隊!

收到毛片看一輪後,有點起雞皮疙瘩,有人說照片可以保留當時的景象,我覺得除了這樣, Roger將我和大衛交往9年的點點滴滴也放進這些照片裡,有了大衛的背書,其他的話我就不多說啦!謝謝Roger和Emma那幾天盡心盡力的工作態度,西雅圖跑透透,日出到日落,出太陽到下雨,二十幾度到十度以下(大衛和我超級敬佩的)! 沒有Emma 就沒有美美的我們!更要謝謝整個計畫的幕後大功臣Kelly辛苦的安排和計劃,讓我們真的愉快順利的完成拍攝!你們辛苦了!

Kevin & Kirsty | Engagement

(Hong Kong)

Kevin decided to have had our engagement photos in Taiwan in 2012, and prepared the arrangement as a surprise. Roger and Kelly had talked to him about styling and arrangement on email, but he couldn’t tell Kirst yet, so she didn’t have much of a say! We both had an amazing time with Roger and Kelly anyway!

Having just found out about the surprise arrangement 1-2 days before the actual shoot, Kirsty packed a casual white dress and flew hurriedly with Kevin from HK to Taipei. She’d wanted to watch the lantern festival, and visit Jiufen. Roger and Kelly were the greatest companions: not only shooting professionally, they had the whole day planned out as if they were showing their friends around their home town. It was a touching memory for both of us. Roger and Kelly drove from Tai Chung where they lived, and arrived into Taipei in the wee hours of the morning. They drove us to Jiufen and took us to the most authentic places to eat. Then we wandered around the quaint village, with the warm and energetic Roger throwing loads of posing suggestions as to how to show the best side of us. This journey brought us to the mountains and by the sea. In each area, we had a spontaneous day, with plenty of beautiful moments captured by Roger along the way. Roger and Kelly are both genuine and relaxed people, it’s very easy to keep the conversation running.
We took the train to the lantern festival in the afternoon. What seemed spontaneous to us was in fact a very sincere preparation by Roger, who’d already visited all the sites days before, read the weather report, picked out all the best places to take us and devised where to shoot! There are no words to describe the crowds at the lantern festival, and no words to describe the sweetness we felt when we realised the pains that Roger had gotten into making sure that the journey ran seamlessly (considering the chaos that can happen in such a crowded event). Can you believe they still had energy to bring us to eat at the night-market after all this work, and even sent us a package of pineapple cakes to our hotel?! We felt like Taiwan was the best place in the world with the loveliest people!
The final photos came in a CD. Surprise after surprise, Roger made a beautifully bound photo album with crystal cover, and personalised message from Kevin to Kirsty afterwards. This was purely self-initiated after he learned that we were going to separate for a year after our marriage so that Kevin could be a medical volunteer in Africa. It was a most meaningful gift for us, because we had those happy memories to look at when we were apart.
If we ever get the chance to do family photography, I’ll be messaging Roger and Kelly again!!

Roger的照片就像哈利波特世界的畫作一樣,每一張照片都是活的,都會動,都在述說一個故事。超感謝Roger無比的耐心和鎮靜,記得在車上看到飄雨整個很驚慌,Roger轉過頭來跟我說,放心!不會下雨的,我整個突然放鬆下來,奇蹟似的下車前雨就停了。

新年快樂,不知道是不是老天爺有感應,因為在收到你們新年祝福前,我就一直想,這幾天想要寫信給你們表達我們的感謝,謝謝你們為我們拍攝出這麼美好的婚禮紀實。
就像Kelly你信裡寫到,你們堅信照片的力量,那是你們的信仰,而24號才剛辦完結婚宴的我們,就在婚禮上第一次公開Roger幫我們完成的婚禮紀錄影像。當天播放影片時,其實我們在外面等著進場,不太知道場內的情形,但婚禮結束後,旅居海外之前沒參加訂婚宴的好朋友, 跑來跟我說:「你知道嗎,我在看你台灣訂婚宴的照片時,我整個感動到淚崩!沒有誇張,我是真的哭的好慘,也太感人了吧」

我跟她說:「我的攝影師真的很厲害,他超級會補捉人的神情,當初我就是看了他的作品集,照片的色彩與風格真實卻充滿了情感,你真的好像都能感受到每場婚禮當天的喜悅和感動,所以我想都沒想直接就找他了!而且要開拍前,不管他多忙,都堅持要和新人開會聊天,因為他想要在開拍前認識新人,暸解新人對婚禮的期望和想法,他覺得這樣才能拍出好照片!」

接著我朋友就很堅定的說:你一定要幫我跟他說 He did it! He did it!!!

是的,you did it.

謝謝你們給了我們這些還會想再拿出來回味的婚禮紀錄,讓當天忙翻天的我們,終於有機會好好看看自己的婚禮,好好看看那些至親好友們的喜悅和感動,你們專業細心的服務和態度,為我們婚禮畫下完美的句點。謝謝你們,希望之後能再看到你們更多更棒的作品,Happy New Year!!

Ling & Chieh | Pre-Wedding | Wedding Day | Family

四年多前在苦苦地等候中,我們終於找到心中最想要的攝影師秉謙來為我們操刀婚紗與當日婚禮,當時老公似乎對他情有獨鍾,我想那是身為男人的直覺與相惜,接下來幾次碰面溝通拍攝的想法,話少,但非常仔細地傾聽,我感受到這是個用生命的熱情來拍照的攝影者
四年後當然也希望由秉謙為我們留下珍貴的照片,記得在拍照的前幾天,我幾乎將他所有親子照的作品一張一張的看過,當看到某一組作品時,不知為何眼淚掉了下來,我想大概也投射自己的情感了吧!若不是也感同身受請託人的情感,攝影者也無法讓我這個旁觀者久久不能抽離!
真的很感謝有這個緣份認識秉謙,讓他為我們拍下那麼多珍貴的畫面,我從這些照片中得到無限的力量,支持我繼續當個夠好的媽媽,你也是我們永遠的朋友!!

文杰 & 雁文 | Wedding Day

其實收到照片也快半個月了,今天終於有時間可以好好看一輪
細細品嘗每一張照片,都好打動我的心,滿滿的感動,彷彿又收了一次賓客們的祝福
每張照片都好生動又不虛假,這就是我當初選擇 Roger Wu 的原因
沒有刻意的設定情節,沒有刻意設定的姿勢,自然又自在
非常喜歡他的拍攝風格,還有他及他的團隊,很謝謝老天爺讓我找到 Roger,從開始的Kelly接洽到溝通,他們都不使用強迫式,僅提供訊息及建議,並且給予很多選擇,拍攝時,團隊非常專業,完全不打擾新人。
Roger 非常忙碌,但由於他對自己的高要求,他一定會挪出時間,而且還是配合新人的時間進行仔細地溝通,整場婚禮有他在就覺得好放心,真的很像大哥哥,人超好,很容易就不知不覺把很多秘密告訴他,重點是他是稀有高顏質攝影師,老公說從來沒看過這麼帥的攝影師,真的!!!
原本以為收到照片應該就差不多了,沒想到最近又收到他們的新年快樂Email,會不會太貼心
非常謝謝Roger 團隊帶給我們非常美好的婚禮回憶,即使過了60年,我們依然會永存在心,難以忘懷的感動,記錄不就是要這樣,不然它就不是紀錄,只能稱照片
我和老公都覺得,非常值得,好險我們選擇了 Roger Wu.

姝儀 & Sven | Pre-Wedding

(Germany)

Roger第一眼觸動我的,是拍出爸爸嫁女兒捨不得的心,讓我紅了眼眶…
我喜歡的就是把當下情感留住的照片,那個Moment是一瞬間的,唯有照片才能將它保存下來!
而回憶的時候,最能引起共鳴的就是那瞬間!不是華麗場景也不是精心布置,是人跟人之間的情感互動。
這就是我要的!
跟Kelly還有Roger初次討論時,也因為我的哭點很低,居然講著講著就落淚了…或許當下他們應該有點傻眼吧?!
第一次見面….就這麼掏心掏肺?!哈哈哈…溝通過程中,更可以感受到他們對自己的工作有多麼熱忱?!
當天其實新娘真的很忙,但是之前已經溝通過,所以我也不擔心!
婚禮總是有很多小插曲,在會場時,Roger也捕捉到我跟老公真實個性的畫面,每次看照片總是會會心一笑!
我老公也很滿意Roger把他的個人照拍的很帥,即使他本來就帥!(趁亂告白)
後來我把當天的照片弄成一本相簿,我爸媽非常喜歡拿出來愛現!
我很慶幸也很滿意選擇了Roger&Kelly,因為他們…..那天的歡樂、混亂、感動、開心、真實,都不會淡忘,那就是我的婚禮!

Olga & Chad | Wedding Day

當時看到Roger的作品覺得好有溫度
不會有奇怪的打光修飾 都是情感之間自然的流動
就決定詢問你們了^_^

最令我印象深刻的是 婚禮前我們約在台中的星巴克見面
其實我好緊張 不知道要怎麼跟“攝影師”說話
幸好Roger並沒有像表面一樣酷 原來他可以聊天XD
更重要的是Kelly讓我感覺好像一個認識很久的老朋友
所以溝通很愉快^_^

照片出來以後 毫無意外的保留了我婚禮最值得紀錄的每個時刻
一個感性不隨便的攝影師 他的作品就如同他一樣
