Unlike other photography companies which offer regular overseas engagement shooting tours, Billy does not engage very much in oversea shooting and we were so excited when we knew that he was planning to do an overseas engagement in Switzerland this year. Both of us are nature lover and we are charmed by the jaw-dropping scenery and many cultural attractions in Switzerland. We decided to go for a two-day shooting journey and we began our first day in Lucerne. With its colorful old town and magnificent city walls, picturesque covered bridge and intriguing churches, we were deeply in love with this gorgeous city. We felt so blissful to be surrounded by the most warm-hearted people we had ever met who always came over to say congratulations and gave their blessings to us. The second day we decided to explore the natural scenery of Switzerland so we made our way to Grindelwald-a beautiful village in the Jungfrau Region. We also visited the famous Reichenbach Falls where we took plenty of beautiful pictures with spectacular mountain views there. The entire engagement photo session was a very relaxing one, since we did not have the pressure to follow any agenda or stick to a list of locations for shooting. It was so fun to drive through the mountains to search for interesting locations for shooting and Billy always had many great ideas of taking the pictures which turned out amazing and so different than typical engagement photos.
Our experience working with Billy was wonderful and we really enjoyed the journey very much. He was easy and fun to work with, and always made us feel natural in front of the camera. We laughed so much all the time and sometimes we forgot we were being photographed. Billy was incredibly talented and we were truly amazed at his ability to always find the perfect spot and setting to make our pictures stand out, and captured every single precious, fun and candid moment. His creativity and attention to detail were fully evident in each photos he took. Heartfelt appreciation to Billy and the crew for all the hardwork and assistance they have given in to produce the stunning and artistic photographs- these are truly the best pictures we have ever taken. The shooting was and will continue to be a very memorable experience to us.

“The research on pre-wedding / big day photographer was such a difficult task for us. We wanted the pictures to be classic, we wanted them to be classy but we also wanted them not to be boring. We looked at the pictures by so many different photographers. None of them really impressed… until one day I randomly came across a picture captioned “Tattoo on the bride”, taken by Billy several years ago, in which he used the shadow of grilles projected on a bride as her “tattoo”. We then paid attention to more protraits by Billy and realised that he is the photographer that we had been looking for.
We had our pre-wedding session (studio + outdoor at Shing Mun Reservior) with Billy in March 2015, the weather of which was typically misty in HK. Our day was no exception. However the pictures turned out to be stunning but at the same time very sweet 🙂 and all of our friends commented me as very elegant, which was a term that nobody had ever used for describing me before 😛
We hired Billy as our big day photographer as well and this was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Despite being so cold on our wedding day (it was the coldest day in HK for 59 years), Billy and his team were very professional and they literally captured ALL of the precious and memorable moments on this special day for us.
We would like to thank Billy and his team once again for the wonderful photos, and Cici for your patience in answering all my silly questions 😛 Hopefully we will have the chance of having pregnancy portraits by Billy in the near future 😛”

「在拍攝Billy這輯Studio Prewedding前，我已分別在香港及巴黎拍攝了2輯Prewedding。巴黎那輯我是挺失望的，而身邊的魔鬼朋友當時正好send我Billy為她在香港拍的Prewedding，我一看見照片，便呆住了，因為Billy完全能夠展示出朋友最美麗，最elegant的一面(朋友本身是個大笑姑婆，elegant這字從來都用不著在她身上kekeke) ，最重要的是不論構圖ˎ表情ˎ效果及妝容都是完美的。我對巴黎那輯失望的主因正正就是妝容，而因為Billy的風格偏向高貴優雅，主張less is more，所以與他合作的化妝師十分擅長清新簡潔高貴的妝容和髮型。
正正因為朋友的Prewedding很完美，亦是我十分喜歡的風格(悄悄話:其實在籌備結婚最初期已經很想找Billy拍攝，但大師的收費並不便宜呢haha，但拍攝後覺得完全物超所值)所以苦苦哀求不什喜歡拍攝的未婚夫再影一輯。相信說Billy是一個easy going的人，是完全沒有人反對的，記得我們與他第一次見面時，竟然能夠與他談上3個多小時(meeting前我還與未婚夫說Studio Prewedding沒什麼好說，半小時可以KO呢…keke) 。雖然是Studio Prewedding，但是Billy十分著重我們的故事，希望拍出每對couple獨特的一面(不同於韓式studio的一式一樣) ，所以在拍攝前期在服裝ˎ道具方面都給予了不少意見。
Billy沒有令我們失望，他的art sense十分好，簡單的構圖已經能夠突出我們的交流,真摰的笑容,不論是甜蜜的ˎ優雅的ˎ搞笑的，Billy都能一一拍下，causal wear那part仲拍得十分Fashionable呢!( 化妝師的功勞不少呢…)。雖然Studio沒有宏偉的背景，但Billy可以透過簡單的背景和燈光就能把我們最真摰ˎ甜蜜的一刻拍下，正正就是我們所追求的。
亦因為十分滿意和喜愛這輯Prewedding，所以婚前3個月驀然找上Billy擔任我們Wedding day的攝影師，原因只有一個，婚禮的moment一閃即逝，找一個能夠每一個重要時刻ˎ人物交流都能拍下的攝影師十分重要，Billy與他的助手Cici都十分擅長這方面呢! (Cici是個easy going,多才多藝的女仔喔!)
婚後差不多半年的今天，我仍然十分喜愛Billy為我們拍的每一張照片，相簿更是每隔一段時間就會番看一次。當然家裹的mini wedding corner少不了他的作品呢! 希望將來有一天能找他為我拍攝Pregnancy photos!!!」

在籌備過程入面，多多要求既我曾經提出過去不同的景點拍攝… 又要指定化妝師.. 又提出不同攝影風格等，幸好他們仍樂於接受我這個煩人的意見！而且拍出來的效果跟我預期一樣, 十分滿意呢！
室內的場景，我特意挑選了一間婚紗店來拍攝.Billy應該不知道，租借這個場地,多多小小我也是根據Billy拍攝風格來挑選的, 因為一看到這間婚紗店，我便能聯想起Billy拍出來的效果.( 哈哈…很像說得有點兒誇張, 不過這是我真實的想法呢!)
室外場景這一部分, 跟老公有了共識.就是希望照片拍出來是Dark tone既效果！起初還未收到相的時候，確實有點兒擔心會否出來既效果並不是心中所預期！但當我收到相片之後，覺得這些疑慮根本就是無謂.
小妹的婚禮也剛完滿結束了，找不到任何籍口再找Billy影相, 現在能做的，就只有默默期盼小生命快點來臨，這樣才能有機會影大肚portrait.. 呵呵！”

“這輯prewedding已經影了超過半年，但我倆仍然會不時翻看相片 ，仍然會好感謝Billy, 令我們愛上布拉格，也帶給我們一個非常開心的布拉格之旅。
Billy是近年婚禮攝影界的大紅人，在facebook或者婚禮雜誌也經常看到他的作品和訪問。而我一直都很喜歡Billy既作品,覺得他的作品都很creative, 而且很有故事性。 雖然知道Billy近年都不接oversea prewedding 的job, 但始終一生人一次的prewedding, 真的希望可以找到最喜愛的攝影師幫我們拍攝，於是我便膽粗粗的聯絡上Billy, 幸好最後他答應了我們，大家才可看到這輯漂亮的相片吧! 布拉格是近來prewedding的熱門拍攝地點，當初我們決定到布拉格後其實有點擔心，擔心出來的相片太standard。但開始了拍攝後，我們很快就消除了這疑慮，因為Billy就是會在standard的拍攝地點，用他獨特的拍照手法和角度，拍攝出不一樣的作品。
Billy是個非常nice的攝影師，跟他合作過的人都會覺得他很easy going! 他是個很有經驗和充滿天份的攝影師，但仍然感覺到他心裡那股熱誠。有些時候Billy看似很隨意的，但其實他是在捕捉我們最真摯，最甜蜜的那一刻! 令我們的相片充滿感情，也令我們每次翻看相片時都會心動，都會回心微笑! 相信這是我們最欣賞Billy的地方! 經過無數次多謝Billy後，我們仍希望再次多謝Billy Onair Photography團隊，無論是與Billy合作的化妝師，拍攝時的助手，及support的同事都是一流的，好nice好易溝通!令我倆由拍攝前，直至取相簿的整個過程都非常放心，非常滿意，非常enjoy! Billy Onair 萬歲!”

“We just wanted to express our deepest appreciation and thanks to Billy, for his amazing ability to capture the essence of our wedding day in such an glamorous way. We have been fans of Billy’s works since we first saw his award-winning picture – “Love goes against gravity” a few years ago, because this was such a beautiful, artistic photo which demonstrated a strong message of love. Then, we looked at other photos by Billy and we were so impressed by his free-styled, creative, candid, dreamy and romantic photography style. We therefore booked Billy as our wedding photographer very soon after we got engaged, as it was so important for us to get the best photographer, and we certainly got that in Billy! Billy was very professional and helpful in advising on the props and setting we could have on our wedding day in order to make it more beautiful. He was familiar with the settings of our venues, and was also very accommodating to our needs and discussed different options concerning every little aspect of wedding with us when we were not sure what we should choose.
Billy did a prewedding photoshooting for us as well as a bridal shower shooting prior to our wedding, and we had so much fun on both days as Billy all along treated us as a friend instead of an ordinary client! He was very friendly, considerate, and made everyone felt so at ease to be shot, including my husband who was not used to taking photos previously. We, including my bridesmaids, felt so relaxed and comfortable taking photos on the day, and none of us were posers! Billy also handled our rowdy crowd very well during the bridal shower shooting and all shootings were smooth! When we received those photos, we were all so amazed as everything was beyond our expectation and all moments of us were so candid! One of my bridesmaids who’s going to get married next year also booked Billy as her wedding day photographer as she was so impressed at Billy’s attitude and talents! On our wedding day, Billy was everywhere capturing every moment yet without being intrusive. Billy was observing and from his photos, I noticed that he captured many special moments in his unique, free-styled way, like the photo in which the groomsmen were walking and carrying the 花轎 with the words “慢駛” on the ground. There were many touching moments that were captured brilliantly by Billy. When we received the photos from Billy, we could only say that Billy captured everything we could ever have wanted that day, and that Billy certainly has a gift for taking ordinary situations and giving them a special, artistic flair.
We could not hesitate to recommend Billy Onair to anyone who ever mentions a photographer. He is truly a fabulous photographer with humble attitude, an amazing friend and an amazing person. The only complaint we have is that it will be tough to choose photos for our album, as there are so many great ones!”

“找上Billy做我的Pre-Wedding及Wedding Day的攝影, 我只可以說是天時地利人和, 及我的 ”一見鐘情”。 記得第一次看見Billy的照片是結婚前一年多的事, 那時候我有一位同事已懷孕五、六個月, 她正在網上搜尋一些懷孕照, 那時候她把一張Billy拍攝的相給我看, 她說這張相很特別, 不像一般的懷孕照。我那時一看見照片, 便呆住了 (是真的, 沒誇張), 因為相中的媽媽真的很美麗, 而相片的構圖和效果亦令相片美得就像一幅畫般, 亦是我十分喜歡的風格, 所以我就一直深深記下了這幅照片。 如是者, 過了一年多, 到我要結婚了, 由於我和丈夫都想婚禮簡簡單單進行, 沒想到原來簡單的婚禮還是有很多事前功夫要做到, 結果有很多決定也是很遲才做, 包括最重要的Pre-Wedding及Wedding Day的攝影。 記得當我在找攝影師時, 其實也做過了不少Research, 亦看過了不少攝影師的作品, 但最後還是念念不忘Billy那些像畫般美麗而又不失自然的風格, 總沒有找到另外一個攝影師的作品可以這樣吸引我, 所以很快我便決定找Billy了。 其實由我找Billy到他幫我拍攝Pre-wedding及Wedding day, 中間只兩、三個月的時間, 因為原本我在海外拍攝的一輯相不太理想, 所以想看看Billy有沒有空。其實婚禮攝影師一般的檔期也很full, 很多都約到下一年度了 (我結婚後才知道原來是這麼難約!!!) 但剛好我結婚時是淡季, 又剛好Billy有檔期幫我拍攝Wedding day及來得及在一個月內幫我做好Pre-wedding的相簿, 這對我來說簡直是奇蹟!!! 而更加奇妙的是, 我記得我每一次去我結婚的酒店食下午茶或是路過, 從來未試過天晴, 而我結婚時是夏天, 天氣更加不似預期, 所以我當時也十分擔心, 因為下雨就浪費了居高臨下的美境。誰知, 當天天氣出奇地好, 我們在107/F陽光普照下註冊, 相片中的我們和風境真的美到不得了。 所有親友看過Pre-Wedding和Wedding Day的相片也讚不絕口, 謝謝Billy把我和丈夫在Pre-wedding拍得有型又美麗, 在Wedding day中亦把我們和所有致親好友最自然真摰的一面拍下來, 一幅幅發自內心微笑的圖畫就像一本故事書, 組成一本珍貴的相簿。 轉眼間, 由結婚到我寫這篇文章都差不多一年了,
直至今天, 我仍然找Billy幫我拍攝其他照片, 因為他是一個我很欣賞和很專業的攝影師, 我絕對放心他所拍下的作品, 希望將來有一天能找他幫我拍攝懷孕照吧 (笑)。”

“We are very appreciated to invite Billy’s Team to recording all the sweetie moments during our pre-wedding and big day. Billy’s snapshot is amazing, he could capture touching picture in the right timing, angles and focus in always. So we feel exciting when receiving the album, also our families and friends are credit on his team. Also, we love our big day’s video directed by Shirley. We have to say thank you very much once again for professional effort by Billy’s team!!”

“Billy係我與老婆的中學同學，當年佢只係一個會晝公仔、會讀書的肥仔， 直至現在佢已經係一個好出色的攝影師， 我覺得佢影嘅相片係好獨特而又自然， 不過仍然係一個肥仔。 我同太太搵Billy影Pre-wedding， 因為我地都好鍾意佢的作品。好開心在整個過程中，不論在籌備、拍攝或收相片時都十分順利，而我與太太，甚至我們的親友都十分喜歡此套Pre-wedding相片。 在此多謝Billy及分享一段拍攝當日的小事。 當日我地選擇了在大家的母校拍攝，原定拍攝場地的次序係禮堂、房室、走廊、花園、球場等等。期間我們正在課室拍攝中，Billy突然指示我地成班人 (當日我地係邀請了好多好朋友幫手做臨記) 立即前往操場影相，好似走火警咁，其後先知原來當時的陽光正柔柔射向操場，好靚，而該段相片我覺得係成套相中最靚， 最有感覺的部份。”
“我同老公搵Billy原因好簡單，真是簡單。’Billy係中學同學;Billy影duck好靚好有feel好特別好…’唔搵佢搵邊個?! 我地plan個wedding好簡單。對pre-wedding shooting一樣，無任何theme，無任何idea。所以每次見面，其實用左10分鐘傾下拍攝地點，之後都係吹水為多。當然我地相信Billy o既專業，無計劃必有驚喜! 好不容易約左班兄弟姊妹好友拍攝。整個學校外景o既拍攝氣氛超輕鬆愉快。Billy好隨性但唔求其，對每個場景、時間、燈光、人物都好有觸覺。我影緊時成日問:可唔可以咁影，可唔可以影邊度邊度…佢都會答:好，跟住會用佢o既角度帶住我地咁企咁望咁笑。我好欣賞Billy輕鬆而又專業o既態度。一個開心輕鬆o既攝影師，絕對影響到被攝者及物。 一日，相出來了。我見到，差D喊左出黎。好靚，真係好靚。身位主角o既我倆當然唔洗講o野，好多張相，唔同場景，唔同衣著，都有唔同o既氣氛同感覺。就算自己係o個日被影o既主角，都估唔到出o黎效果會咁有味道。最令我驚喜o既一張，係一大班人一齊班房影o既合照(Moment that Matter)，幅相好似歌劇劇照，每一個人o既表情都好明顯地表示快樂，而我倆口子明顯地搶鏡，好sweet o架! 除攝影師本身外，我想Billy的手手腳腳，即MUA，打燈都好緊要。多謝Billy OnAir團隊製作一本咁靚o既Pre-wedding Album俾我地，依個係我地簡單婚禮o既一個highlight。我仲會不時欣賞Billy OnAir上面一段”BEHIND THE SCENE” o既片，一路睇依段video同photo既混合版本，一路諗起結婚 o既點滴。到依家，仲有朋友讚緊輯相好靚。我堅是驕傲!”
“We had our pre wedding & big day shoots taken by Billy. And when we knew we would have our first baby coming more than half year ago, my wife and I were both very certain that we would find Billy to take belly shoots for our first born.
We took our pre wedding album out the night before we took belly shoots for our first born. As we watched the album, memories years ago flashed back and we were both still so astonished by Billy’s artistic sense. London has never been as colourful and glamorous as it is in our pre wedding album be it in the tube, at Covent Garden or outside The Big Ben.
Shooting with Billy is always a pleasant experience. Both my wife and I never felt comfortable in front of the camera, not to mention posing in wedding suits and gown when a big crowd of strangers were staring at us. Yet, Billy managed to guide us through and captured our natural moments.
We have given a tough mission to Billy for our first born belly shoots. We wish to take the photos in one of the most crowded beaches in Hong Kong and wish to capture the beautiful sea, soft sands, the trees, the nice sunshine and natural blue sky. We are both looking forward to seeing his upcoming master piece. However, as always, we know the result will be amazing.
Billy has been with us in each of our milestones and has magically captured our precious moments each time. We wish to take this opportunity to thank him and let others know how incredible he is! We will definitely come back to him again for our future photo shoots and recommend him to our friends.”

“We were so lucky that invited Billy as our wedding day photographer. We are sure that we made a good choice of billy and his great team. Since the wedding day till now, we have been asked for who our photographer was, i m so pround to introduce Billy to my friends each time! Not only the photos are great, i felt so trustable of him that day so that i could completely enjoyed my wedding. His professional skills and attitude really inspired me ! Thx for him helping me in the most treasurable moment in my life!”
– Alice & Jerry
“Billy and his team are such wonderful people to work with. The day was so much fun! We didn’t have to worry about how to pose in front of the camera – just be ourselves and Billy captured the best moments for us. Before the shooting, Billy was patient enough to answer all our queries. I would highly recommend Billy Onair to everyone!”
– Connie & Alton
“Our wedding was in early September in the beautiful countryside of Hampshire in England. The overall atmosphere and mood of early autumn in nature was what I wanted. And Billy captured that perfectly under his lens. Every time I look back at our photos, he reminded me of how intimate, genuine and emotional that day was. So, thank you so much for giving me such a beautiful lasting memory!”

“當時因時間緊迫，喺esd life揾到billy on air, 見到就算落雨天影prewedding 都好靚，即時與billy通完email就確實日子影prewedding! 每到一個景點Billy都會慢慢觀察環境影，將我地最自然一刻捕捉！最驚喜影完已是10pm多，到零晨約1am就已經有幾張post上fb, 就可以睇到Billy對攝影既熱誠！ 因為有prewedding的默契，big day上我太忙冇特別交帶我想要甚麼，Billy 只是默默地影，亦冇一般攝影師做埋大妗姐講一d 令大家發笑既說話(我地最怕) 但當睇到相片後，所有最真摰的時刻都一一紀錄在Billy手中！ 4年了，我仍會不時重溫prewedding同wedding day的相片，真的非常非常喜歡 ! 原來不知不覺我地已和Billy做了好朋友4年多，除左prewedding 同big day 既相，Billy幫我地影既大肚相同家庭照都填滿我地屋企每個角落！
