Cecelia + Kester

I always enjoy shooting outdoor theme setting wedding. Kester and Cecelia’s beach wedding celebration is held in Sentosa and they take great pride to customise every details the way they like it. This is almost the first wedding that I have covered that dogs are allowed in the premises. Both of them are dog lovers and they have a charming Corgi. The celebration is casual and chill yet every aspect from decorations to foods are well taken care of by the newly wedded. Congratulations to Kester and Cecelia and it’s my pleasure to be your wedding photographer. : )

Strong composition and good graphic image. Like the high contrast look. The image would be even stronger if there was a bit more detail in the dress.

Thank you everyone for your constant support and liking of my photography work.

This wonderful image tells us a lot about our society today. The use of fill flash with ambient light creates an interesting color pallete and complements its futuristic mood.

JUDGES COMMENTS: The creativity in this image leads it to this position. I also like that it was shot from an unusual angle. Time and time again, it pays off to think outside the box, and in this case the photographer did so. Great thinking!
