Photographers Share 10 Scenic Spots in Hong Kong for Your Engagement Shoot

Are you planning your pre-wedding shoot? Have you already figured out the perfect spot for your photos?

But the great thing about Hong Kong is that there are so many beautiful places–in the city and outside–that will deliver stunning scenes for your engagement shoot. Be it a romantic beach location, or casual streets with character, there’s something for every kind of couple here in Hong Kong. To help you find the perfect spot for your pre-wedding shoot, a list of suggestions from Hong Kong photographers. Check out their top recommendations now! Scroll on.


(1) Tap Mun

Looking for a carefree spot outdoors? Take a boat from Sai Kung Country Park out across the bay to Tap Mun (Grass Island). Once there take a quick walk headed up to the beautiful coastline that surrounds the island. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, ignore the tape that says “go no further” and explore the paths and cliffs thereafter. The amazing scenery looks more like Cornwall or the East Coast than Hong Kong! In this shoot, Jamie Ousby took advantage of the stunning view and captured equally stunning photos of these soon-to-weds.


(2) City Star Ferry Tour

If you live in the city, you don’t really need to go far to find a location for beautiful pre-wedding photos, says Jamie Ousby. The Star Ferry is a Hong Kong icon that has been going for over 100 years, so why not take photos here? You’ll have the cityscape as your backdrop. Jump on in and mix with the locals for photos that have a casual vibe. If you choose the later afternoon for your shoot, you’ll also have the Hong Kong sunset as your companion.
