Tokyo Pre-wedding / Jaslyn and Kenny

Last weekend, Jaslyn and Kenny had their wedding celebration and I am very happy to see that they have set up a nice photo gallery for the pre-wedding images I have taken for them in Tokyo earlier this year.

I still remember vividly on my first meet up with the couple, we were already talking about our love for Japanese food and delicacies and the next thing I know; we are on the streets of Tokyo. I had a great time shooting the pre-wedding for this very sincere and jovial couple and despite we were there mid of March, we were very lucky to have one Sakura tree bloom for us for the photo session.

Congratulations to Jaslyn and Kenny, pleasure is mine to be your wedding photographer. : )

Romance in Toyama

I had a great time traveling to east of Japan to shoot a casual session for this lovely Japanese couple Minami and Kohei alongside with my friend Kai Ching who have resided in Toyama. The couple have just signed their marriage cert days before the shoot  and I really enjoy shooting this engagement session: simple, natural, chill and not too much posing. Lots of fun.

PDN Top Knots 2015 Contest

I got hold of a copy of the May issue PDN magazine today and it put a smile on my face as this is the first time I took part in the PDN Top Knots annual contest and I won. This pre-wedding photo of  Peiyen and Haoyu was taken at Yoyogi Park in Tokyo last year. I still remember vividly that morning we went to Shinjuku Park in the early morning but it wasn’t open yet thus my make up artist Yukiko suggested we switch location to shoot at the Yoyogi park for the Sakura. As I am a big fan of black and white, lines and shadows, the stairs of this overhead bridge caught my attention. The lighting is just perfect for me as I visualise and made the shot.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Peiyen and Haoyu and many more wonderful couples for trusting my perspective and allow me to create in full capacity of my work even when some of my work are drawn towards more abstract.

Hong Kong Pre-Wedding / Eunice and Jerry

The first time I met Eunice and Jerry was on the day before the shoot. They have booked me prior to the shooting in Hong Kong via online and initially I thought either one of them should be a Singaporean as recent years of travelling shoot, usually either one of them is Singaporean thus they google wedding photographer Singapore. After a catch up over drinks, I learnt that they are both Hong Konger and I am surprise at first because Hong Kong have got many good photographers. After some understanding, they told me they are both architect and they do not want the usual bridal boutique style of photography and they have seen my work on how I work with composition on framing, using of lights, abstract and lines and most importantly, the photos are filled with the personality and character of the couple that draws them to sending me enquiry and eventually booking me.

I have a great time shooting this couple in Hong Kong as the approach was not the usual norm of shooting on the busy streets of Hong Kong. : )

Congratulations to Eunice and Jerry.

AGWPJA Q3 2014 Contest Result

Winning awards is never an objective on my mind when I shoot wedding or pre-wedding, the objective of a event coverage is always for the precious memories for my client; couples who believe in my style of work and allowing me to be there at their precious day to document heritage memories for the family.

However, once in a while, when one of these photo wins an award. It becomes a bonus and little recognition for me and serve as a reminder that I am always as good as my last photo and I have to keep pushing the limit and works on the creative aspect of my work.

I received one more good news for another award from AGWPJA latest contest result.  : )  Quite a nice way to a closure of 2014.

Thank you everyone for liking my style of work. : )
