Lizzy + Sean's Intimate Elopement at Villa Karang Saujana Bali

It had been a while since my team and I covered the intimate elopement like this. This wedding was only attended by closest people of the bride and groom. Lizzy the beautiful bride, which was only accompanied by one bridesmaid, seemed busy with her dressers, meanwhile in the different part of the villa, the main room, Sean the groom was cheerfully chatting with his friends and family. The chit-chat and jokes they had made the big room seemed small.
The marriage vows were to be said by the sunset, where the weather was expected to be a little bit cooler and the venue which took place on the top of a beach cliff, got the nice breeze from the ocean.  Yet I could see that the groom was nervous and cold-sweated because his shirt was wet, or was it because of the weather? :) Under the blue sky, with the caresses of the wind, and the sound of rolling waves crashed onto the rocks, the vows of the two children of men were finally said.
A kiss, happy faces, applauses, the impatients-flower rai…

Charlene's Babymoon Photoshoot at Indigo Hotel Seminyak

Another client from Singapura, Charlene and her husband chose Bali to have a babymoon holiday for a few days. The babymoon session was done at Indigo Hotel Seminyak. Lovely outfit, Charlene looked very pretty and stunning wearing that dress.
She was glowing, during the photo session Charlene couldn't stop smiling. She looked very happy with her pregnancy, seemed like she couldn't wait to see her baby to be present in this world, and sing it a lullaby.
As always, I'm not easily satisfied with photo results, I don't want just ordinary photos, I want to capture different yet interesting shots even if they're taken in a such limited time and place. Such this photo session we just had, time ran out rapidly I needed more time to get more great, perfect photos, the results that would make my clients happy and satisfied.

Snapshot of Ra Family | Chasing the Sunset on Seminyak Beach

Say, Annyonghaseyo (안녕하세요) to the Ra Family, a fun small family from South Korea. During their vacation in Bali, they made time to do snapshot photo session. Gyubi, the little one was adorable, she was very cooperative during the snapshot and she couldn't stop laughing when they teased her.
The Ra Family was staying at The Trans Resort Hotel, and after a photo session in the hotel area, we continued it on Seminyak Beach to chase the sunset. Just like many other children who never stepped their feet in the sand before, Gyubi seemed ticklish and didn't like the feel of it, it was too cute, for the first time ever touching the sand.  
How lucky we were, that afternoon sunset looked beautiful and perfect. We were a little worried that we may not have good sunset because it rained in Denpasar the day before. The photoshoot went great and they loved the results. Till we meet again Ra Family!  While posting this blog, I still had one wish to travel to Korea someday!

Couple Session in Ubud | Jillian + Shai

After being together for eight years, finally they decided to get married, was quite some time of relationship wasn't it? Four days after their wedding in  Kuala Lumpur, Jillian and Shai flew to Bali for the honeymoon and having a romantic post wedding photo session. They brought the dress they wore on their wedding day. Perfect! 
That afternoon photo session was  done at a villa in Ubud, surrounded by the rice fields and local village houses. We didn't go too far to get  a good landscape and charming ornaments as photo backgrounds, we only had to do a little walk down the villa area and village roads. They all looked so authentically stunning and just perfect! Lucky me.

A Traditional Balinese Wedding | Merti + Sanjaya

Sanjaya and Merti had the traditional Balinese wedding in Nusa Penida Island, the homeland of the groom. Five days prior, the groom's family came to the bride's home in Antiga - Karangasem to propose Sanjaya's soulmate. This proposal moment was also for the engagement.
For two days my team and I covered Sanjaya and Merti' s traditional Balinese wedding ceremony in Nusa Penida. Day one, they had the traditional ceremony ritual which was called Mejaya-jaya or some people called it Mawidi-widana, led by a Peranda (Bali Hindu Priest). This ritual took almost all day with all the Balinese ornaments like janur (young coconut leaf decoration), penjor (curved bamboo decoration) and banten (offerings) that were seen in every corner of the house.  These little things make the house looked so merry!  
The day after, they held the reception. The bride and groom wore the authentic Balinese traditional outfit, they looked graceful and glow with such charisma.  A new beginning had b…
