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 begun, may they shall live together happily ever after!

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. In this city also, my favorite street photographer Alex Webb has made brilliant artworks.
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.

The Kim | Bali Family Photography

This wasn't my first time taking pictures of families with newborns. Their son Aden, was only 2 months old, besides fun it was easy to photograph the Kim family, I didn't have to give many directions and they could go naturally, so I just took shoot and shoots.  This sweet family was from South Korea who at the moment lived in Hong Kong. They even already gave me great compliments and excellent reviews on Google although I didn't put up their photos on the blog yet!   I'm very flattered and feeling lucky having the chance to photograph them. 
All photo sessions were done at two different villas where they stayed during their holiday in Ubud. In the photo sessions Janet and husband seemed caring, their abundant love to their little one was shown beautifully. How true a saying was "no truer love than the love of parents for their children"  Sweet!
