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. : )

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. : )

ISPWP Spring 2018 Contest Result

I did this pre-wedding photo shoot for Melvin and Lynette few days after I got hold of the Fujifilm X-H1 camera and I brought it with me for the photoshoot. This is one of my favorite picture from the many I took that day and this photo was featured in the official video for the camera launch. Fast forward, a piece of good news came through the email today on the latest ISPWP SPRING Contest result and I have won an award under the Wedding Venue and Location category for this image.  Thank you Melvin and Lynette for having faith in my style of work. Congratulations on the coming wedding. : )

ISPWP Fall 2017 Contest Result

2017 is a busy but fruitful year for me shooting many awesome couples and traveling to many beautiful countries to create images. One part I definitely neglected this year is participating in a photography contest. This ISPWP Fall contest is probably the last one of the year that I remember the submission date and made the submission on time. The result of the contest was announced a couple of days ago and I am glad that I won 2 awards in 2 different categories; early Christmas gifts to me indeed.

Thank you to all of you who have always shown supports and faith in my style of photography.

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!
