ISPWP Fall 2018 Contest Result

Happy news came thru the email this Monday morning that I have won 2 awards from the latest ISPWP contest. This is definitely an injection of positive energy for me to keep working on my photography craft in this December busy month. A Big Thank You goes to the 2 couples in this 2 images, Cher and Tyler on the First Dance photo and Reyna and Alvin for the pre-wedding photo shot at the Sentosa SEA Aquarium. I am truly blessed to meet couples who trusted my vision and allowing me to work on my creativity on their images both in wedding day and pre-wedding.

When Time Stood Still in Sydney

When Gabriel and Sharmaine booked me for a pre-wedding photo shoot, they are very sure to do the photo shoot overseas but just can’t put a confirmation to the location. After over 6 months of discussion, Sydney was the choice. I enjoyed shooting in Australia for its beautiful weather and charming lighting and I am excited to challenge myself to see how else can I shoot the Opera House from a different perspective. I truly appreciate the couple for liking my style of work and trusted me to shoot the way I wanted to tell their story in a Timeless and Classy interpretation. Thank you for having me as your photographer.

Love Makes A Family – The Pith Family

I enjoy shooting family portraits and always preferred a more candid approach in documenting their day-to-day life. I have known the Pith family for a long time as Grette is a good friend of mine from secondary school, and I shot her wedding with Mark in Spain; and pre-wedding in Amsterdam and Singapore. Time flies and this is the second time I am doing a family photo session with them. It’s such a blessing to watch the beautiful family grow from behind my lenses. Enjoy the photos. : )

Lost in Iceland – Darren and May

I am fortunate to have set foot on many beautiful countries and cities in the world for photo shoots but Iceland is a place that totally blew me away!

If mother nature is an artist and a great painter, Iceland would be the grand gallery she exhibits her masterpieces. Though the forever changing weather made the photo shoot a challenge, the photo shoot went well and we were also blessed with few nights of witnessing the northern lights.  Thank you Darren and May, for braving the sub-zero temperature for the photo shoot and it was a pleasure to shoot for you both at one of the most beautiful countries I have created my work. Special thanks to make-up artist Jenny Goh and videographer Taylor and Christel for making the trip a very enjoyable and fun road trip. In short, all of you Rocks!

The Art of Portraiture Seminar – Derrick Ong + Nikon Singapore

I am honored to be invited by Nikon School of Singapore to collaborate and give a seminar on The Art of Portraiture photography at LYF@ SMU.  The turnout was good and I am blessed with a great audience who are eager learners. I had an awesome time sharing my experience and answering all the questions. Thank you everyone for attending and a big thank you to all the nice people at Nikon Singapore for arranging the event.

Anny and Brett – Wedding at Flutes Singapore

This post could get you drunk on alcohol or high with laughter!

When I first met Brett in my office, I was like wow, this guy looks like Hulk Hogon, but after talking to him for a few mins, he is a very cool and gentle guy. Anny and Brett’s wedding was held at one of my favorite wedding location in Singapore, Flutes at the National Musuem. The wedding was a simple yet cosy celebration and the whole night was nothing short of laughter and lots of drinking! Enjoy!

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.
