Sumba Holiday Photography | Foto Liburan Keluarga Herlambang

Sumba, the second time around, the first time I went there it was three years ago, traveling with my friends for a week. This one was for a personal holiday photographer for Herlambang Family from Jakarta, that we got to spend two days capturing their holiday on the land of Sandalwood. We explored this charming island from Waingapu all the way to Waikabubak. As I always had felt everytime I traveled, the time was never long enough to experience the joy.

Two day roadtrip was very fun with this small family, greet the morning on the Persaudaraan Hill, but then suddenly out car got stalled! So we decided to take a walk and have lunch on the way at a beautiful lavished village with its beautiful traditional houses. If only our car hadn't stalled, we would've gone to the waterfall, the road was a little bit challenging, slippery and all because it rained for a while. We caught the rain in the village of Prai Ijing, but we got to enjoy the freshness of young coconut on the Walakiri Beach. As we left for Wairinding Hill,  the weather switched to be as hot as it could be LOL and then we went on souvenir shopping frenzy in Raja Parailiu Village, they had an eye for the renowned beautiful East Sumba woven fabrics. 

As the trip continued, it took us hours to get to the Tanarara, but we were spoiled by the magical, unique, too-charming-not-to-capture Sumba landscapes along the way! I hadn't quite found the addictive Sumbanese food, as we had seafood more while we were there, yet the seafood was as delicious as most of the seafood dish elsewhere. Come to Sumba if you haven't been there! I certainly recommend Sumba worth to visit. Up until today I haven't got a chance to see the Pasola Festival, shall it wait for my third visit?

Setelah usai menjelajah Sumba, Kelurga Herlambang melanjutkan liburan mereka selama beberapa hari di Bali, senang bertemu mereka lagi dan lebih senang lagi jika ada banyak kesempatan lain untuk dapat mengabadikan liburan keluarga lain untuk menjelajah keseluruh pelosok negeriku tercinta, Indonesia.

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

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

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
