In the classy mood – Paris

Paris is always a good idea!

I am blessed to have traveled to Paris for photo shoot almost every year since almost 10 years ago. Though compare to other parts of Europe, Paris is slightly more touristy but it have a special flavour in itself that you can’t find in other cities; not just the romance but the artsiness in the small lanes and sidewalks along the Seine River where you know Henri Cartier Bresson might have made a photo here and Pablo Picasso might get inspiration from a cafe he have his morning coffee and croissant.

For me, the classy vibes of the city during different seasons are charming to make photos for my client.  Enjoy this set of pre-wedding photos of Chi Siang and Joanne, awesome couple whom I had a great trip with them enjoying not just the shoot but great food and dining in the city of love. Thank you for having me. : )

Briar and Allan

Briar and Allan lives in Sydney but were back to sunny Singapore for their small and cosy wedding reception and on this day, close family members flew in from all around the world to celebrate with them. They arranged a nice historic peranakan house for a quick photoshoot before the guests arrive and the sweet couple even arranged magic shows for the kids in their family. Nice celebration.

 

In the Romance of France

” Paris is always a good idea” – Audrey Hepburn

Paris is one of the very popular pre-wedding destination and I am blessed to have shoot there at least once every year for the past 6 years. Everytime I when I am there, I will imaging my favorite street master photographer Henri Cartier Bresson and Elliot Erwitt walking through the charming Parisan streets or walking along the Seine river creating their black and white master pieces.

This pre-wedding photography shoot for Guan Hong and Wei Teng brought me back to the romantic French capitol and we had a nice photo session travelling towards east of France in Saint Michel. Enjoy the photos. : )

Kai Ching and Shuji in Toyama, Japan

I always love Japan for their food, culture and really nice people, this shoot brought me to Toyama, a city 400km east of Japan from Tokyo. Kaiching is a Singaporean teacher who taught English in Toyama and in the school he met Shuji, a volleyball teacher. Romance blossom and it’s a great pleasure for me to shoot their pre-wedding in the Japanese traditional wedding kimono in Shuji’s hometown; the charming landscape of Toyama prefecture.

Portrait Session in Germany / Lena and Christian

The day before the German wedding, we have arranged a shooting session for Lena and Christian in their German traditional costume. The session helped them warm up and getting used to me with my kick-ass Nikon cameras. Despite the language barrier as both can’t speak much English and I can’t speak German, I manage to compile a very candid session with their way of showing love and affection.  Amazing couple, awesome landscape and beautiful countryside. Enjoy the images.

Lena and Christian – A German Wedding

Please brace yourself that this blog post is filled with a lot of images(I really mean a lot!), a lot of drinking, a lot of dancing and a lot of happy people.

I was very honored to be shooting this wedding for Lena and Christian in the small German village of Prackenbach in Bavaria, Germany. This is the first time I shoot a destination wedding for a local German couple in such a charming  Bavaria village. Despite language barrier with the couple, I had a good time covering the wedding and the pre-traditional German costume shoot. My greatest thanks to the Thome family for the amazing hospitality during my stay.

Thank you June and Immanuel for the arrangement for this shoot and making sure I am always feeling great for the trip.

Congratulations to Lena and Christian. Thank you for having me at your wedding. : )

Tokyo Pre-wedding / Jaslyn and Kenny

Last weekend, Jaslyn and Kenny had their wedding celebration and I am very happy to see that they have set up a nice photo gallery for the pre-wedding images I have taken for them in Tokyo earlier this year.

I still remember vividly on my first meet up with the couple, we were already talking about our love for Japanese food and delicacies and the next thing I know; we are on the streets of Tokyo. I had a great time shooting the pre-wedding for this very sincere and jovial couple and despite we were there mid of March, we were very lucky to have one Sakura tree bloom for us for the photo session.

Congratulations to Jaslyn and Kenny, pleasure is mine to be your wedding photographer. : )
