WPJA Q2 2009 Result

This week is a very exciting week for me. After winning the AGWPJA award, I was informed today that I also win another international award for the latest WPJA Q2 2009 contest under the Creative Portrait Category.

I can’t thank enough to all my friends and great couples out there for all your continous support and believing in my photography style and work. I will continue to stay focus and work on more creative photography art and to capture more great artistic moments for couples whom I will be documenting your wedding.

Here is the winning photo and the judge’s comment:

JUDGES COMMENTS: The creativity in this image leads it to this position. I also like that it was shot from an unusual angle. Time and time again, it pays off to think outside the box, and in this case the photographer did so. Great thinking!

Judge’s Comments: 1. I wish there was a little more detail in the lamp but the color and composition still make this image a winner. This is another example of a really simple image which just works.

Testimonial for Derrick Ong Photography

Great job Derrick!

And we can’t thank you enough for your brilliant photography! We love how the finished product has come together, it is so professional, genuine and absolutely beautiful. Every captured emotion of joy, excitement, nostalgia and happiness is overwhelming. They couldn’t have turned out better and this is exactly what we were looking and dreaming for. We have shared the pictures with our family, friends and relatives, not only have they been astonished with the pictures but each of them has felt the energy and emotions of the day. Not that I have ever doubted your photography skill, but to see the pictures turning out so perfect and beyond, it was really amazing! What you have done is captured pictures of moments either we had the pleasure of enjoying and now can remember years from now, or you gave us a glimpse into what was going on when we were not looking or not present. Thank you Sooooo much! It was a pleasure and also a privilege to have you as our wedding photographer and also as part of our celebration. You’re very personable and can easily get along with everyone. You are a perfectionist in your approach to work, yet holding to a pleasant, kind and humble personality.

We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding photographer than Derrick. If you want true experience and professionalism delivered in a non condescending and practical manner, look no further than Derrick Ong Photography. Smile, you’re in the best possible hands… but remember, for a photographer of such a high caliber, you have to book him in advance, at least a year ahead… and that’s what I did!

Lionel & Jeanette

My apology for not updating my blog for a while. August is a busy month for me though is the lunar 7th month. Was busy with shoots as well as clearing backlog.

I have lots of wedding photo on queue to be updated on my blog and I will do so over the next 2 weeks. First up, here is a small intimate solemnisation ceremony for Jeanette and Lionel. Jeanette is the sweet cousin of Grette whom is a close friend of mine for 20 years; since secondary one. I remember seeing Jeanette once when she is still in her secondary school but time flies, she is a fine young lady now and I am honored to be engaged to be her wedding photographer.

The ceremony was held on a yatch and the whole settings are filled with sunshine, fun and laughters. Congratulations Lionel and Jeanette.
