The Han | Ubud Family Holiday | Bali Snapshot Photography

Seems like the holiday photography has become a new trend in the world of photography. It is developing especially in the world's top holiday destinations. Many families, couple or personals hire local photographers to capture their holiday moments to get the best out of it with beautiful stunning locations as the backdrop.

Generally most clients are interested in snapshot or candid pictures. To some people taking pictures with certain poses have become too mainstream, therefore candid and snapshot are more into today's trend.

I got another South Korean Family clients! How beautiful! I took The Han Family that afternoon to several interesting places in Ubud, outside the the place they were staying at Komaneka Bisma, that had very beautiful view.

The children of Han Family were so excited as we reached the parking lot of Monkey Forest. We strolled the forest, watching the monkeys up close made them laugh although the daughter cried a bit when one naughty monkey grabbed the banana out of her hand. That actually made some of the tourists there laughed.

Ubud is also famous with its beautiful rice fields, we took a path that leads us to a rice fields in the outskirts of Ubud. Unfortunately the harvest season was over and the farmers prepared the fields for replanting. Meanwhile the young Hans were trying to act like monkeys :)

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 wallpapers, h…

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…

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…
