Who can deny such authentic beauty! Come and explore the land of Sandalwood, a land that breeds mighty horses, Sumba. Explore it with your significant other, friends and your loved ones.

Five days exploring Waingapu, East Sumba and Waikabubak, West Sumba wasn't enough. There were still interesting places I should see. See you at some other time Sumba!

I visited Sumba the other day, it was my first time and I hope my next visit will be with YOU lovebirds! I'm ready for your pre-wedding photoshoots on this exotic and romantic island. Yes, I think it was just another day in paradise!  

Ayu Maternity Photoshoot in Karangasem

July the first, their first child was born, it was a girl! It was two days after we did their maternity  photo session at Danau Yeh Malet to get the sunrise then the photo shoot continued to the second location tribal village of Tenganan, wearing the traditional outfit of the village. The woven fabric Geringsing, so they called it, it was traditionally made, with natural coloring and authentic motives. 

A year ago I did a pre-wedding photoshoots for Kadek and Ayu, covered with Balinese traditional outfits and now they returned with belly bump! Yes, she was over eight month pregnant. So, the maternity photo shoot was taken! Completed with three outfits and two locations around Karangasem areas. Will they return for family photo session? We shall see. 

Fun Session with Lim Family in Sofitel Nusa Dua

I loved the Lim Family, a small family from Singapore. A short photosession that morning was done at Sofitel Nusa Dua, one of hotels I oftenly visited for family photo sessions. They really enjoyed that morning photosession despite it was little bit cloudy and sunrise had passed an hour ago, but the hotel's and beach's charm always inspiring for new ideas. The place may be the same but the moments created would always be different.  

This month is really a blessing  month for me, the month of Lebaran or Eid holiday has always been a high season month. Clients don't come only from the country but also from abroad. 

The Chan Family | Bali Maternity Photoshoot

Katie's was seven month pregnant and along with husband and her son, they spent some time for a vacation at Banyan Tree Ungasan,  this lovely family was from Hong Kong. That afternoon  the maternity photoshoot was done at the beach, where it was still around the Melasti Beach area. This beach had always been crowded especially in the afternoon. 

The sound of people talking  resonated with the sound of waves    in the distance. The ocean seemed calm, the wind breeze felt just right,  although the sky was partially covered by thick clouds, you still could see on the west side the sun that was little bit shy to show up it was shading behind the thin clouds until it disappeared behind the hills. There was no pretty sunset that afternoon, but guess what? The photo session that afternoon was very fun and exciting, their kids did really enjoy it. Nothing more fun to me as a  photographer than seeing happy clients! Check out their excitement here.

Jack + Ormmy | Adventurous Pre Wedding Shoot in Gili Trawangan Lombok

For the first time I had clients from Thailand, Jack and Ormmy were from Bangkok. After attending their friend's wedding in Bandung, they continued the vacation to Gili Trawangan, Lombok, and ended up in Bali for a few days. In Gili Trawangan, Jack proposed to Ormmy, and by all means Ormmy said "YES"! They planned to get married by the end of this year in Bangkok. 

I loved this couple, they were really lovely. I spent two days with them exploring the beauty of Gili Trawangan island, biking, strolling the coast to see the sunrise and riding a Dokar (horse carriage). On this island you wouldn't find any motor vehicles, any vehicles with engines at all, their existence was prohibited here. With Dokar ride we could enjoy the sunset on the horizon of Bali sea, with the view of stunning Mount Agung. For a moment I felt like living back in the old days whereas motor vehicles hadn't been invented, it was an incredibly fun and unique experience.
