Sudianto + Suryani's Wedding | Hongkong Garden Restaurant Bali

There are many new things I learn as I often taking pictures of a wedding especially the traditional wedding processions, such as Balinese tradition, Javanese tradition and Chinese tradition like what Sudianto and Suryani had for example. Although there was a modern touch, the culture of their ancestor was still being carried. From the moment of fetching the bride whereas the groom would be getting some pranks, to the tea ceremony (tea pai), it was more like getting to know each other's families better. Many attributes or symbolic processions that if you try to discover they have special meaning to them, and that's all very interesting to be captured. Sudianto lived in Bali and Suryani was originally from Bangka, they chose Bali as their place to hold their wedding. Their wedding reception was held at Hongkong Garden Restaurant so they can accommodate their large number of guests. 

Love changes life, makes it more meaningful. Love does not only unite a couple of children of men, but also unites two families. Certainly love is not that small, love is vast and grand, therefore, welcome it from any direction.

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. 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
