Peter started his photographic journey in 2009, in a commercial photography studio, learning from scratch from the photographers around him on the finer points of crafting an image.
With an innate desire to capture moments coupled with a new found love of travelling, a week long photography trip to Melbourne convinced him that documenting life and its every moments held the most appeal to him.
He prefers the proceedings of the weddings to flow naturally along as it should, with minimal interference from him. He believes as a wedding photojournalist, he is first and foremost, a silent observer.
His photography influences, as of today, are Marcus Bell, Kate Macpherson, Sam Abell and the American film director Wes Anderson.

Married 2 years ago
My husband and I got married in 2013 and we were lucky to find you as our wedding photographer. Not only were you professional but you captured the moments and images that we were looking for. Everyone knows that when you get married there are so many factors that can be surprising on your special day. You did your homework before hand and visited Punggol Park to check it out. On our wedding day itself, thank you for going the extra mile to come to my place early, and for asking me to bring the slippers for the outdoor shot so that I would not dirty my heels. Your “moments” of us, and our family members actually made me shed some tears when I viewed the photographs. These photos are going to be all that was left after the night was over. We’d have to look at them our whole life. The investment was nothing compared to the lifetime of memories they would evoke. We are so glad and grateful we met you in time for our wedding. Thank you, Zack and Amanda
