Balinese Blessing Ceremony Wedding Alila Ubud | Emilia + Dominic

This time was one of several times that I covered a couple of lovebirds who wanted to get married in Balinese blessing traditional ceremony wedding. A very intimate afternoon at sculpture garden Alila Ubud, Bali. It was very interesting.

Frangipani and hydrangea flowers made the hall way to the wedding venue look amazingly pretty. The altar and the smoke of incense hazing through the stack of offerings, which they decorate fruits and the fresh fragrance flowers. These flowers and the colorful fruits beautify the altar while the Priest was busy reciting the mantra and he shook the chime every once in a while. It was a very holy and beautiful wedding. The ceremony didn't last very long, but Dominic and Emilia kept smiling happily and as if it never disappeared from their faces.

Segara Village Sanur Wedding | Sandy + Fadli

After 18 days they took me for a travel around Turkey, starting from Istanbul, Pamukkale, and ended up in Cappadocia for a prewedding photo sessions, a month later they had their wedding at Segara Village Sanur, Bali.

It was a perfect place to have an intimate garden wedding with a very beautiful Sanur beach as background view. It was raining that day from early afternoon, I was very worried that the event wouldn't go well as it should. But the bride and groom didn't seem to worry about the weather at all.
Few moments later, just like a miracle the rain stopped just right when the ceremony was about to begin, and didn't rain for the rest of the evening.

So the vow has been said, the new life together has begun, the garden party went great, wishing them a very blessed marriage forever, amen. Congrats Fadli and Sandy.

Marzia & Keluarga Liburan di Bali | The Sun & Surf Stay Bingin Beach

Diumurnya yang ke satu tahun Marzia sudah diajak liburan bersama keluarganya ke Bali, she's so cute.  This was her first experience at the beach, untuk pertama kali kaki-kaki mungilnya menginjak pasir dan ombak pantai dan itu terjadi di Pantai Virgin Beach (White Sand Beach) Bugbug, Karangasem. Perkenalan dengan pantai berhasil, meski sempat nangis karena kena sapuan ombak namun tidak membuat baby Marzia kapok malah kemudian sangat menikmatinya.

Hari selanjutnya saya bertemu keluarga kecil ini di The Sun & Surf Stay Bingin Beach Uluwatu, seharian ngikutin mereka dari sarapan hingga jalan-jalan ke Pantai Nyang Nyang, melelahkan tapi menyenangkan.

Sandy + Fadli Prewedding | Cappadocia Turkey Engagement Photography

As a photographer who loves all gender of photography, it is very easy for me to love Istanbul. The stunning landscape, unique culture, adorned and beautiful architectures are in every corner of the city. In this city also, my favorite street photographer Alex Webb has made brilliant artworks.

After a week seeing the glory of the past and the grandiose civilization in Istanbul, now it was time to explore Pamukkale, Cappadocia/Goreme. In Denizli province we only visited the Cleopatra thermal bath, the beautiful  Pamukkale calcium travertine/terraces, and Hierapolis building one of the sites of UNESCO world heritage center. You must visit these places when you are in Turkey.

In Cappadocia or Kapadokya in Turkish, we live in Goreme the heart of Cappadocia National Park. Goreme is a beautiful town with an unique landscape, it's mind blowing. Cappadocia cannot be separated from ceramics, carpets and hot air balloon. I was very lucky now I could see and get on the balloon just like what I saw on book covers or desktop wallpapers, hot air balloons flying everywhere in the sky by sunrise! It was awesome!

I wish I could go to Turkey every year, to know the people closer, experience all the seasons, bringing clients for holiday pictures. Turkey is a favorite destination for pre-wedding / engagement photography because its incredibly beautiful.
