Memories

Memories are made of these. Places, friends, life experiences and most importantly, family. Here, the father of the bride pops in to check on her….

Wedding of Kah Kheng and Kalyn

To start of my return to blogging (heh heh heh)… here’s a wedding from not too long ago. Lovely couple. I like them not only…

1

5 months.

This blog seems to be dormant for as long as Mount Agung in Bali. I guess it’s time to wake it up a little and…

That call

There are days where you just have to make that call.

Every little thing

Yes main events are important, but to me, what’s more interesting are these little moments. If you remember Every Little Thing (ELT), you are probably…

Geometry of drinking

I believe the more you tilt your head back, the happier you are. That’s what I feel when I have a beer bottle in hand….

Eyes on me

Those little moments that happen during the preparation phase of the wedding. If you look hard enough, there will be someone looking at you.

Father and daughter moment

It’s all in the hands.

No, we are not done yet. We are just getting started.

It’s been 2 new years since I last posted. Wedding season, traveling, Mika, friends, new toys and amazing weather (storms, amazing light, cool weather). These…

A little love on Friday

The kind of image for rainy evening. Hopefully the weather will play nice tomorrow.

Exit

No tears, no hugs, but one can still tell. Because typical chinese parents.

Getting ready

The difference between a bride getting ready compared to the groom.

Framed

Found a spot of reflection and I can’t help but frame them up.

A fleeting moment

Grandfather of the bride bidding her farewell as the door of the lift closes.

It’s midweek!

And I’m halfway through the set. It’s been a really enjoyable week thus far. Wish I had more time, but I won’t complain. Here’s one for…

Runaway flower girl

Runaway kids are ok. As long they don’t pack up their stuff and run away (back in the days, it’s called “zao chu” or running…

Changed out

Before I left the room for the groom (haha yes!), I looked back and caught this fleeting moment which I really like.

Let me show you magic

When it comes to make up and hair styling, it’s literally magic. If you ever had the opportunity to witness the entire process, you will…

What’s the blog good for?

For me to remember moments like these. For the times when I want to look back at what I have done over the years.

Details in shadows and light

No, I don’t usually do details in black and whites. Here we have an image where shadows of glasses and napkins are cast on the…

A little highlight from above

Sometimes the light just shines where the action is.

Unscripted groomsmen portraits

Just before walking down the aisle. I like how the light gradually changes from light to shadows.

One door, two meanings

After a series of challenges, the groom was finally one door away from seeing his bride. For the mother of the bride, that also means…

Lists

Ask any wedding photographer who has been shooting long enough, they will tell you about the dreadful ‘lists of items to take’ by a client….

untitled

The groom unveils the bride. I can’t help but notice the similarity in that movement with the picture in the background.

Habits

It is said that it takes about 21 days to form a new habit. While blogging isn’t new, but I never really got to make…

Conversations

The interesting stuff we see at weddings 😀

Happier without the tech

It’s been a long long time since I touched this blog. No it’s not dead, I was just really busy and somewhat neglected this. Here’s…

The wedding singer

Today is the third day of 2016 and I’m feeling a little nervous, a little excited and quite looking forward to the rest of it.

In sync

Visually, this is the kind of stuff that I like.

The Addams Family

It’s almost 2am. My eyes are tired but my mind is still filled with excitement. There are so many things to look forward to that…

Light and shadow

I’ve been eyeing that space for a long time but didn’t have an opportunity to shoot this until now. Worth the wait.

Curiousity

Like the Mars rover, if you leave kids running around at a wedding ceremony, you get unexpected results. Sometimes, a gem or two.

Rings please

Just before putting the ring on the bride’s finger, the symmetry force is strong here. Keep looking.

I’m back

It’s been awhile since my last image post. The hungry ghost month was filled with close shaves and activities. We started by narrowly missing the…

Catching a moment

Catching the moment is more satisfying than making the moment. I liken it to people falling in love by chance as opposed to being matchmade….

Stars aligned

There are moments and there are moments that are pre planned. I saw the composition that I wanted, took a shot with the page boy…

Four’s a Family

And here to take over the world 😀

Curves

Spending a good Saturday fixing things and being normal because your kind of special and mine can be different.

The real vintage

Real vintage. This is no hipster.

This is home

This is no Paris. But I watched this city grow. And to me, this means alot.

untitled

There is so much going on in this image. One of those that I really like.

Ready, “let’s do it”

There is something about this image that I really like but can’t quite describe it.

Translucence

I love the subtlety in details in this image. Less is not always more, but definitely better in this case.

Getting busy

The couple in the room getting ready for the next segment of the wedding.

The way you look

When it comes to Pre-Wedding portraits, I rarely convert them in black and white. But for some reason, I really like this one. Maybe it’s…

Among giants

The city we know of since 1980s has changed so much. This is Marina barrage, where I spent a considerable part of my teenage days in…
