Now you have seen Jon and Alena’s pre-wedding photos taken  in Melbourne in my previous post. I have mentioned many times that I really enjoyed shooting this couple and thanking them for braving the cold for the shoot. For the first time, I am posting some behind the scene shots for this pre-wedding trip. Check it out the fun, the many meals that we have eaten and the experience we went through.  Enjoy!!!

Melbourne Pre-Wedding : Jon + Alena

You might have seen some of the photos which I have posted previously on my Facebook and website, this Melbourne Pre-wedding shoot of Jon and Alena was taken awhile back and while I am posting these photos, I can still vividly remember alot of details and fun we had throughout the whole shoot from Melbourne City to the Grand Ocean Road The 12 Apostles. Thank you Alena for braving the cold and Jon being always very gentlemen in making sure everyone (make up artist, their good friend, Alena’s sister and myself) are well taken care. Enjoy the photos.

Kim + Lan

 I am very happy to witness and document Heng Kim and Yoke Lan’s wedding. Heng Kim is my polytechnic classmate when I was doing my Mechanical Engineering Diploma at the Ngee Ann Polytechnic. He is always the very hardworking student who will finish all his tutorial and study every single page of the notes and textbook during exam. Me, on the other hand always borrow his tutorial and  like every lazy student, submit what I copied. Ok, the story will be never ending talking about the past and this nice friend. I shall let the photos tell the story of the wedding day.

Thank you Heng Kim & Yoke Lan for having me as your wedding photographer. Congratulations once again for a successful wedding celebration. 

[AG]WPJA Q3 2010 Contest Result

The latest AGWPJA Q3 2010 result is out and it’s my pleasure to share that I have won 4 international awards from this 3rd quarter contest. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you for your continous support and liking my style of work.  Here are the winning photos and the Judge’s comments:

Getting Ready : 3rd Placing
Judges Comment: There’s a slight smile behind the veil of the bride as she adjusts her necklace. This alone makes you feel happy. The tight cropping and strong directional lighting create a simple, sophisticated picture.

Getting Ready: 10th Placing
Judges Comment: This is a nice moment of a bride as her entourage helps her on the stairs. The dress becomes a flowing mass that they all have to handle. Shooting from a high angle helps capture all that’s going on.


Details(Found): 14th Placing
Judges Comment: The vintage toning effect makes this photo work. A very creative way to display and often-photographed scene.

Details(Found): 17th Placing
Judges Comment: A whimsical moment that was caught by the photographer. It’s well-framed and simple. It gets the point across quickly.
