I'm Tanarak, a Hong Kong wedding photographer.
With Landscape architect degree and art/graphic work experience for 10 years, Tanarak use a unique way in watching everything happen during the wedding ceremony and capture every single touching moment. Fascinated in photography since 10, Tanarak is very sensitive to things happened around him. This is because he thinks emotion may happen any second. Only through continuous observation can one capture the spontaneous emotion of the newly wedded couple and their friends and relatives. “My job is to record the couple’s story through images. In my eye, every shot is a scene that carry story.”
As a Thai photographer, every wedding here always different in his eyes, different culture and tradition make he never get bored when he shoot in every wedding. This also makes his photos so fresh and unique.“I like to listen to the couple. The more I listen to their story, understand their feeling, the more elements I can put into the picture and make them look extraordinary.”

Thank you so much for taking such wonderful photographs of our wedding day. We are so happy with the results, you captured some very special moments in such an unobtrusive way. It has been difficult for us to choose our favourite photos, so we have about seven in big frames around our home. Thank you also for the wonderful book, it is a very special memento of our special day. ,
