think creative….

I always like to brainstorm creative new ideas for shoot and here is one of them of William and Dawn during their pre-wedding shoot in Gold Coast, Australia.

Come What May…

“Come What May” is the song William and Dawn sang during their first match-in at the wedding banquet. This highly energised couple whom I shot their pre-wedding in Gold Coast Australia had their wedding celebration over the weekend and it’s a day packed event with lots of fun and laughter.

And the moment they set their eyes on each other, it was like the lyrics of the song:

“Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place, suddenly it moves with such a perfect grace, Suddenly my life doesn’t seem such a waste, it all revolves around you.
And there’s no mountain too high, no river too wide, sing out this song I’ll be there by your side. Storm clouds may gather, and stars may collide, But I love you until the end of time.

Come what may, come what may, I will love you until my dying day”

Congratulations William and Dawn.

Chung Yuan & Diana

I was asked this same question many times, Why do I want to be a wedding photographer out of the many different trade of photography out there.

My answer is a very simple one. Wedding is a very intimate and personal event of 2 persons becoming one officially and the joyous occasion is celebrated with their family and love ones. It marks the first day of the couple’s life as husband and wife and to be there to capture all the moments and converting them into beautiful memories. No other photography trade can leave as great an impact as wedding photographer does in someone’s life.

I covered Chung Yuan and Diana’s wedding over a 2 days event with a solemnisation ceremony at The Botanical Garden on the first and a customary wedding on the second. The couple and friends have so much fun and laughter and it’s really heart warming to witness and shooting this wedding.

Daniel + Sharon = Joshua

As a wedding photographer, my job is to capture moments and create timeless art and memories for the couple and when the wedding celebration ends and a brand new beginning for the newly wedded, it marks the end of my assignment.

Over the years there are some couples that after the wedding, we still maintain good friendship and as facebook is getting popular nowadays, getting connected is one way to keep in touch. I received an invitation sms a month ago from Daniel and Sharon, the couple whom I shoot their pre-wedding in Tasmania 2 years back. Their baby boy Joshua is celebrating his 1st birthday.

Witnessing all the stages and moments from seeing them planning their pre-wedding and wedding, having a succesful wedding day celebration and now, their son’s birthday, it really makes my job a very satisfying and fulfiling one.

Happy Birthday Joshua and Congratulations Daniel and Sharon.
