I want image colours that look true and won’t expire in years because your moments won’t expire.

A smile is the best makeup any girl can wear. Ok ok, Susan did a fantastic job as well.
So Mike, how are weddings nowadays without banquets? Well, nothing changes.. You just got to hire me!
Congratulation Masahiro & Yiting! Your wedding is simple and beautiful!
Thank you for having me capture this important day. Faith makes all things possible.

Love makes all things easy. Everlasting blessings and love for your marriage!



Adam + Jenny

I promise I didn’t make them laugh like crazy… hahaha,

So this is the first time I have the chance to shoot inside the national gallery and hey, this place is really handsome. Haha, I think it a he instead of she. We had lots of fun and created tons of images! I love this location as it is air-con, the fact that the light falls in through the magnificent glass door even on a rainy day, and also the clean background.

Andrew + Eva

Eva loves my images so much and she was so upset when she came to know that I was booked for her wedding day.

She even waited and hope that the other couple will postpone so they can proceed with their booking.

It truly touches my heart to know that my images craved such a great impact. Thank you so so much for having me as your pre-wedding photographer instead.

The skies were extremely grey and that was just 10 mins before their pre-wedding.

I was so worried about the downpour will but we were extremely blessed!
We were greeted by soft flat light at the start of the shoot and a tint of golden light at the end of the shoot.

Can’t ask for more!

2021 weddings are really different from the past. Be it good or bad, love never cancel. Intimate weddings are the way to go. In fact, there will be more time to enjoy your wedding day now!

When Lizzie asked me am I familiar with Capella Singapore as they would like to hold their ceremony and love to take some gorgeous images around Capella. My answer to them was YES!

Upon reaching, while I was looking for their room number it was not the standard 101, 201, or 301. It was Villa 1. So I went to the concierge and was brought to Villa 1 via a buggy. The light and the view at Villa 1 was so amazing! From then on, I told myself actually I don’t know Capella well. lol..

Long story short, we had bridal preparation, first look, couple photos, ceremony, post-ceremony photos all done within Capella Singapore. Their wedding was nothing short of amazing!

Lizzie, now you have married your best friend and I wish you both an everlasting lifelong relationship and happily ever after!

Here are the exact words Shi Jie told Gwen during their solemnization.
It is always nice to hear heartfelt vow with zero plagiarism.

“I know I don’t usually express or talk about how I feel.
Maybe even causing you to break your back by carry on our conversations
but I want you to know even when I am quiet and not talking much,
I really love you very very much.
More importantly, I promise I will treat your family just like mine and
I promise I will always always love you.
Thank you for loving me, I love you Gwen.”

There is no UNSUCK filter in post processing. The photo is either good, or it’s not. Post Processing won’t make a crappy images look good.
I always shoot it right in camera with minimal post processing to make your wedding images True and Timeless.
Trend and style come and go away, you wouldn’t want your images to look expired in 3-5 years down the road.

In this shoot, I concentrate much on the light and composition but there is one most powerful element in there; their love and interaction.

Here we have Will Serge + Leanna all the way from Chicago, thank you for choosing me and forming this friendship.
They are such a lovely and amazing couple, they were together since their college days and that was an amazing 8 years till now!

Believe it or not, I didn’t really been to or notice this part of the Fort Canning Park and when we had a walk there I was totally blown away with the places and the light I saw.

Be with someone who makes you laugh.
Someone who always tell the truth and support your dreams.
Someone who loves you for who you are and wants to be with you.

I totally love this series!
I have never been here before and when Siwen suggested this area, I was like – LET’s GO!
We roamed into the back alleys, searching for light and composition, tons of laughter generated, left footprints and great memories formed.

I want to photograph a wedding, a story that touches your heart.
That good vibe that lasted from dawn to dusk.
Nothing was pretentious.

I always shoot it right in camera with minimal post processing to make you wedding images true and timeless.

You know, every wedding has a unique story to tell and unfold.
Some ask me why are there so much feel when they look at my pictures. To be true to you, not all weddings are the same.
I am just like a chef, that great chef who picks up great ingredients (moments), put them in the wok and cook to my liking (post process). This dish might be awarded Michelin star but it might just be normal to some. There is always a higher mountain than the others and that is why I never thought of competing but constantly improving myself to be better than yesterday.

I am blessed to have Raymond & Yi Tong for their pre wedding as well as their actual day wedding.

That feel is unbelievable amazing. Now I know Raymond sings like a champion and Yi Tong can tears more easily than I thought!
