PDN Top Knots 2015 Contest

I got hold of a copy of the May issue PDN magazine today and it put a smile on my face as this is the first time I took part in the PDN Top Knots annual contest and I won. This pre-wedding photo of  Peiyen and Haoyu was taken at Yoyogi Park in Tokyo last year. I still remember vividly that morning we went to Shinjuku Park in the early morning but it wasn’t open yet thus my make up artist Yukiko suggested we switch location to shoot at the Yoyogi park for the Sakura. As I am a big fan of black and white, lines and shadows, the stairs of this overhead bridge caught my attention. The lighting is just perfect for me as I visualise and made the shot.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Peiyen and Haoyu and many more wonderful couples for trusting my perspective and allow me to create in full capacity of my work even when some of my work are drawn towards more abstract.

Hong Kong Pre-Wedding / Eunice and Jerry

The first time I met Eunice and Jerry was on the day before the shoot. They have booked me prior to the shooting in Hong Kong via online and initially I thought either one of them should be a Singaporean as recent years of travelling shoot, usually either one of them is Singaporean thus they google wedding photographer Singapore. After a catch up over drinks, I learnt that they are both Hong Konger and I am surprise at first because Hong Kong have got many good photographers. After some understanding, they told me they are both architect and they do not want the usual bridal boutique style of photography and they have seen my work on how I work with composition on framing, using of lights, abstract and lines and most importantly, the photos are filled with the personality and character of the couple that draws them to sending me enquiry and eventually booking me.

I have a great time shooting this couple in Hong Kong as the approach was not the usual norm of shooting on the busy streets of Hong Kong. : )

Congratulations to Eunice and Jerry.
