Nelly + Sherman | Bali Engagement Photo Session

Client: Nelly Poon + Sherman Choi
Locations : Courtyard by Marriott Nusa Dua and Legian Beach
Destination : Bali, Indonesia

Sweats were dripping from the foreheads of a couple Nelly and Sherman, yet the photo session has just started few minutes ago. The weather in Bali has been very hot lately more than any other day. For a few times this couple from Hongkong wiped off their foreheads to keep the sweats from dripping.

Nelly told me, she knew me from one of her friends that I had taken the pictures of before, as they happened to have prewedding photo session in Bali as well. It was really nice to know and hear what she told me about this recommendation, a continuous reference from one friend to another made me feel so glad.  Nelly looked very beautiful wearing a knee-length dress, with additional thin fabric as its tail, it was very unique yet lovely dress. Her hair was straightly brushed down, and would flair as it was blown by the wind.  Meanwhile Sherman looked very handsome with white long sleeve shirt matched with long trousers, they indeed were lovely couple. I let them free to do what they like to do, without too many pose directions from me. This way the couple seemed to be so comfortable and relaxed in expressing their love that I had chances to capture many candid moments from their body language that was shown. Love is beautiful. I was hoping that they would hire me to capture their wedding moments but what a pity that they had hired a photographer in Hongkong, it was where they held the wedding.  I once asked them whether if they would have their honeymoon in Bali after the wedding is being held, they said, they would have the honeymoon in another country. I wish them a happy wedding and may love unite them always.

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. After a week seeing the glory of the past and the grandiose civilisation in Istanbul with my beloved friends, Sandy and Fadli, now it was time to explore Pamukkale and 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 w

Sihombing Family | Holiday Photoshoot In Nyanyi Beach

I have been very lucky to have met clients that I've taken the pictures of during this pandemic, they've been very helpful ease my burden, that it had been months I lived out without any income and by taking pictures again kills the boredom of being home all day. Thank you Sihombing Family, it's an endless gratitude. Taking pictures of Sihombing Family was one of the most fun photosessions I've had. Especially taking pictures of Karen, she made my job easier, it was easy to give directions to her, she posed very naturally, it was smooth. The rest of the shots were mostly candid, as I usually take. I was a little bit worried about the weather, it was persistenly cloudy and it rained a little too for a few minutes. The blue sky didn't appear until the end of the session but by the time when it was supposed to be sunset, behind the thick clouds, the sun did show up a little but it was no longer than a minute. However, it was still okay could catch the sunlight to make

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.
