I believe in the power of stories: they invoke emotions and impact lives, not to mention last a lifetime. And that is the motivation behind my journalistic style, which is really to capture moments in order to present a compelling story, complete with a plot and casts to tell a good story.
My clients' story.
I started photography back in 2008 but turned professional in 2011. From 2009, I was already the resident photographer for my school (where I worked as a teacher) and it was there that I honed my event photography. I also taught in the photography club, which helped me develop a way of making the technical simple, even to teens.
Besides weddings, architecture and landscape has been a much loved photographic genre for me, which to me is not unlike weddings. Because when I stand before a majestic view (be it a countryside or a skyscraper or a special wedding), immediately I'd think: where should I stand? Which angles to take? How do I best represent this moment/place in photos? How do I tell a story?
Because at the end of the day, stories matter. Especially to wedding couples, when their special day become beautiful memories.

Hey David, thanks for the really quick work processing all our photos! We really enjoyed working with you, and appreciate how you made the whole process such a breeze. We never had to chase you for anything, and you really went the extra mile in making sure of your own initiative that you were at rehearsals and knew what was needed on our actual wedding day. We love looking at your photos and are really proud to show them off on FB. We would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends. Thanks again for the great memories!

Wedding Photography Packages
My pricing structure is simple: flat prices for full day or half day; that means no charge for additional hours. This is because I believe that when clients engage me, they shouldn't need to worry about counting the hours and if they want to pay more for my services. It's your special day and worrying about paying the photographer should be the last thing on your mind.
Clients will receive ALL good edited photos in 2 ways:
1. In high resolution, in an online gallery from which they can download from (clients will receive a link). This gallery will be live for ten years, and it is a great way to share special and intimate moments with friends and families without broadcasting on public social media.
2. In full resolution, in a beautiful wooden thumb drive for safekeeping.
You will also receive a free 10 x 15 cm, 40 page phonebook, because sometimes, printed memories mean much more than digital ones. It is also a great way to share them with friends when you catch up with them post celebrations.
