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. : )

Jason and Chloe in Tokyo

Tokyo’s Shibuya is famous for its scramble crossing – where you can see thousands on the roads at the same time. It took just two tries for Jason and Chloe to get this photo at the intersection – and I’m glad it turned out well. Shoots are more interesting, fun and creative when they are not overly posed. Sharing a selection of mine and the couple’s favourite images – made possible also by awesome weather and lighting during the shoot. Congrats to the newlyweds who tied the knot over the weekend, and wishing them a blissful marriage.

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.

A Wedding in Hong Kong / Jazs and Chloe

It was a pleasure and great joy to shoot for Jazs and Chloe’s wedding in Hong Kong. It is always an eye-opener for me and a chance to experience how weddings are celebrated differently around the world. Though this is not the first time I shoot a wedding in Hong Kong and Chinese wedding there and Singapore are quite similar, there are still many small details that the approach is different. I truly appreciate Jazs and Chloe that they prefer the un-stage kind of photography style and trusting me in capturing all these moments. Congratulation. : )

Love Makes A Family – The Family

I enjoy shooting family portraits and always preferred a more candid approach in documenting their day-to-day life. I have known the family for a long time as the mummy is a good friend of mine from secondary school, and I shot her wedding 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. : )

Intimate Tokyo Wedding – Yu and Satoko

This special moment belongs to them only. Yu and Satoko exchanged vows in a quiet and intimate ceremony at a luxurious wedding venue at Omotesando Hill in Tokyo. The day was simple, and it was theirs. Though we didn’t speak a common language, shooting for them was a breeze and the day went by without any communications issue. They trusted me to capture unscripted moments. Later, as we headed out for some posed shots at Shibuya’s scramble crossing and Omotesando Hill – they knew exactly how to turn on the magic for the camera. : )

Special thanks to Naoko Kinami san for all the wonderful arrangement for this wedding. : )
