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.

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. : )

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 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!

In the classy mood – Paris

Paris is always a good idea!

I am blessed to have traveled to Paris for photo shoot almost every year since almost 10 years ago. Though compare to other parts of Europe, Paris is slightly more touristy but it have a special flavour in itself that you can’t find in other cities; not just the romance but the artsiness in the small lanes and sidewalks along the Seine River where you know Henri Cartier Bresson might have made a photo here and Pablo Picasso might get inspiration from a cafe he have his morning coffee and croissant.

For me, the classy vibes of the city during different seasons are charming to make photos for my client.  Enjoy this set of pre-wedding photos of Chi Siang and Joanne, awesome couple whom I had a great trip with them enjoying not just the shoot but great food and dining in the city of love. Thank you for having me. : )
