I never wonder that I will falling in love with capturing wedding moments but today I could say that this is the best job ever that I had. I graduated from Architecture major back in 2008 and hell yeah I got also the ‘A’ result for my final task.
I remember when I held a Nikon FM10 on my hand and starting to capture my friend’s smile and I just feel that it was wonderful experience.
One day I wondering how if I able to shoot on wedding and start to capture bride’s cryin’, people laugh, or the joy of the party till I found a lovely Singaporean couple who book my expertise and shooting a wedding in Bali Indonesia.
By the way I met this amazing bride in a nice cafe located around Raffles Place and we did a nice conversation during our lunch, good friend and better client with a nice burger set and grilled Tuna steak on a white plate.
I develop my studio start from scratch and the one who always helping me is my wife, Nina. Back in 2009 when I had my first engagement session, she bring all my photography gears and I know it was heavy for a girl but that’s why I love her so much. Till now you read my story she still stand next to me, become my assistant even sometimes she had a special request of make up and hair do from my couple.
I love capturing wedding moments and portraits, in these two expertise I put all of my passion and hard work on it. I pack my camera bag and travel around the globe to meet awesome couple and better friends. It was fun and challenging, travel with my wife and touch down our feet on a crystal clear sea water beach called Maldives or even we cross a big junction in Causeway Bay while I keep pushing my Nikon D810 shutter for portrait session.
Amazing Experiences of Capturing Wedding Moments
I start my career as a wedding photographer with uncommon ways, so I try to shoot for many photography niches like commercial, fine art, and news journalism but there is no one could be better feeling than wedding.
I love to see people, shake their hands, hug them following the ceremony and so many other things to do, so see beautiful woman wearing a white bridal is the most unforgettable moment that I always curious. I pick up my camera and enjoying the moment so some of my couple said that even they don’t see me shooting but surely I did it and this is how I work.
I remember back few years ago while I shooting wedding for Germany – Philippines couple in Conrad Bali and yes you see one of my picture below…
I just remember on that day when I move around from the groom side and suddenly see Jasmine’s cryin’ during her ceremony, it was 100% moment that I’ve got. Look at to her eyes, she look into Arthur when her husband tell how much he loves her right in front of the priest.
I know that’s a perfect moment that Jasmine want to see in the next decades and show this picture to their kids and grand child. This is how I shoot and this is how I telling my couple about a beautiful story that they can’t see during 8 hours wedding. I focus on the moment and don’t really care about others.
Imagine If It’s You on the Frame!
No matter who you are than marriage is great moment that you waiting for, it’s a glamorous day where you can accepting someone as a husband and father from your kids. It gonna be totally different life comparing when you are in a partner but become a husband and wife is different story for sure.

I’m Working on Journalism Style
What I concern in wedding is all about moment and that is the one that I don’t want to be missed!
In small wedding like 5 to 10 people than I’m happy to work alone cause it helps me to move fast from a side to other side, but if somebody held a big wedding let say over than 50 people than I will ask my shooter to accompany me and get more photo stock of your glorious moments.
I change my lens and shoot so fast than journalism is my favourite way to catch the moment, I’m focusing about how your wedding story flow so rather than get great, superb, and sharp images, I better to get the most amazing moment that you gonna enjoy till death separate both of you.
Look at the black and white picture above,
I saw beautiful parents dancing under the light and look at them! look at how they enjoying the night and don’t care where I am. So when I get wedding shooting than I could be hide behind the table just to make sure that you don’t see me and when I see you enjoying the moment than, Bamm! I shoot on you so fast and clear!
I use this journalism style for every photo session that I had,
Few years ago I receive a message that someone in Miami want me to shoot for their family portrait, shortly I knew that they got a handsome baby boy following 7 years of marriage. I know that having a baby for someone is easy but NOT for this couple and yes they wait with tears and down for 7 years than finally an adorable boy called ‘Eagle’ was born.
I shoot for this family in 3 hours and following I do post production in I invite them to come to my studio and I saw for what I did to them.
I realize that tears are drop on their chick, sometimes they look at me and back to the photo, see it so deep! I know that they see a treasure that they waiting for, I know this baby is mean so much for them and I love to be one who get this rare chance.
