Fearless Awards Collection 58

A good friend of mine (Hendra Lesmana) who is also a very talented photographer from Indonesia encouraged me last year to join the Fearless Awards. I took a while to join as in recent years I am already not as active in participating in any contest. Nonetheless, I joined as a challenge to myself as well as wanting to keep pushing the limit of my creativity in photo creation.

The latest Collection 58 Fearless Awards is announced and I am glad to know with 15000 entries, I have won 1 Fearless award, 2 Honorable Mentioned and 3 Finalists.

ISPWP Winter 2020 Contest Result

An early Birthday gift came in today from the latest ISPWP contest result for Winter 2020 and it added 2 more international awards to my career achievement. I have shot weddings for over 10 years now and I am glad this journey is an exciting one and the more I shoot, the more fulfilling I felt as I make memories for my clients who have trusted their lifetime memories in my vision. Thank you everyone.

Kazu and Kelly – Pre-Wedding Singapore

Every time I shoot for a new couple whom I probably have met only once or twice prior to the shoot, a lot of questions ran through my mind. How long have they dated and how do they meet each other. Likewise when Kazu san hires me to shoot for him. I am thankful for the locations they have picked for the photo-session are how I like it to be – telling their love story.

He is from Japan and she is from Singapore, the two first set eyes on each other at a cafe called the Flying Squirrel and cupid did a great job that day. During dating, they enjoy chilling out drinking beers at a bar called the Pump Station 1965 located at Punggol. Last but not least, they are nice homely people that’s why a home setting that they usually spend a lot of quality time together is one of the location choices.

ISPWP Summer 2019 Contest Result

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my clients for having faith and showing great support to my style of work. I am definitely enjoying every single wedding assignment and will keep working on this photography craft.

Winter Hokkaido Wedding – Kameya and Alina

I will start this post with an apology that this is going to be a long post with a lot of photos. At the beginning of this year, I had the privilege to shoot another Japanese wedding in Hokkaido for Kameya san and Alina san. I still remember it’s a cold winter day with a temperature of about -5 degree and was quite snowy. However, the atmosphere at this wedding was a total opposite from the outside, the fun and laughter of all the guests quickly made this wedding celebration filled with warmth and love for the couple.

Thank you Kameya san and Alina san for having me to shoot this wedding. Congratulations once again. I didn’t have the chance to take a wefie with you guys but I added a pic at work photo in this collection. : )
