My style is to create something new, something different in the same setting. Finding that unique frame in the middle of chaos is what I am good at. I am a very passionate photographer and once a client has hired me, they know for sure that their memories are going to be captured in the most unique manner possible.

Hi, I'm Ronnie, born and grown up in Hong Kong, a tiny spot on our planet where 'East meets West'~ I studied History back in my University time, but besides my major study, I joined a documentary filmmaking course taught by a local veteran producer. That was when I started to discover my interest in videography and photography. Once graduated in 2008, I saved most of my salary from my first job, and bought my first ever camera. I became more addicted to photography, and especially photojournalism, because it has the magic to freeze a moment and tell a great story. Thanks to another experienced teacher, I was able to learn from him more advanced photographic technique and philosophy, and gradually I have engaged myself with wedding photography. Since then, I was lucky enough to cover weddings not only in Hong Kong, but also in Germany, Australia and China, with couples from various countries including France, Netherlands, Canada, South Korea and more. It's not an easy ride for sure, but I am glad that I have came through all these years and my love of wedding photojournalism simply grows with time!

Hi I’m Ash Davenport from Miki Photography, an international award winning Wedding Photographer in London but covering the whole of the UK. I specialise in a blend of relaxed and creative portraits and a documentary approach to capturing weddings. So if I were to try and describe my style in three words it would be, LOVE, FUN & STYLE. LOVE – For me that’s what a wedding is primarily about, and what I'm trying to capture the essence of: two people who love each other enough to say that they want to spend the rest of the lives together, surrounded by all the people most important to them. FUN – Whether it be joy, happiness, or laughter I want your images to resonate with real emotions. So relax be yourselves, and just enjoy it – and then allow the pictures to reflect that. Don’t worry I be mostly blending into the day capturing it all as it all unfolds. No fake smiles, no saying cheese and no looking at the camera. Just awesome imagery of people being themselves with real relaxed expressions. STYLE – I always strive to make you both 'look good’ especially in the parts of the day where I get to spend a few moments with you and hopefully produce some pictures you’ll be proud of and happy to show your friends and make them go 'WOW’. If that sounds like something you’d be interested in, I’d love to hear from you. [London Wedding Photographer]

London small wedding photography by Wayne La of England United Kingdom

The more life experience I get, the more I realise the importance of being in the moment. Playing with my children rather than observing them over my laptop; Watching a movie with my wife and just enjoying her company, the easy silence, the film and forgetting the stream of social media updates; Taking the dog out for a walk and just enjoying the walk. As they say, "waking up to smell the roses". My approach to photography is a reflection of who I am: in the moment, spontaneous, observant. I look for shards of interest in the ordinary - maybe a touch of humour, a fleck of irony, a cool reflection. I do that because I'm mindful that I'm here right now and there's always something going on - right now! My other half and I have three children and a dog. I've shot weddings all over the British Isles and USA. I'd love to hear from couples who share my passion for photographic storytelling, who use Pinterest for ideas, not rules; and who place importance in images that reflect who they really are, not what trends tell them to be.

Ontario wedding and elopement photography by Amit Dullu of Canada

Photography, for me, is my passion and I believe my pictures are moments in time that I have been able to capture and each of those moments is able to tell us a story. It is those first ten minutes I spend with my clients that are the most important ones - its the beginning of understanding each other and making that short journey together.... an opportunity for me to give them their story in my words. With no formal training in photography, I have left no stone unturned to learn from any knowledgeable source I can - I have put in long hours to understand the finer technical aspects of this art, experimented and honed my skills over the years. What started as a short two-hour maternity shoot in a snowstorm has now become 5 years of extensive experience of shooting more than a hundred weddings - most of them in Canada and India. As a full-time professional photographer, I specialize in portrait & wedding photography - also do events, if time permits. On the parallel, I also love to paint - mostly abstracts in acrylics...my work was recently chosen in the 8 best emerging artists in Toronto by the prestigious Elaine Fleck Gallery.

I fell in love with the moments I saw through my lens…this is the reason that makes me become a visual storyteller. Back to the very first step, my shooting journey has begun with techniques and shooting tips like everyone who loves taking photos. Practices…trainings…lessons…are my daily life since I was a student of architecture and design. My shooting passion also drove me to live and learn in London which gives me opportunities to explore the perspective of my lens. Step by step throughout the journey in London, I got a chance to work with the leading professional photographer of wedding photojournalist of the UK. My chance also wide opened for the fashion shoot. It’s come with opportunities which let me explore more on the photography road map to work with leading magazines and do advertising photoshoot for the famous brands in various industries. During the time, I also had chances to do portrait photography for individuals, couples, families, friends. I’ve learned a lot more about how to capture the very touchy-feely moments from portrait shooting. I am still learning from every shot that I take to continue my visual storytelling journey. For me, all chances were not just a chance, they were significant experiences that have made me believe that a photographer is an engaged storyteller who has a trained, creative, and talented eye to see a photographic opportunity and make a decision for the moment. With the strong feeling and belief that every moment is precious and perfect in itself, I wish I will put myself more engaged in demonstrating the moments like creating genuine art…to tell the story from time to time Today, it’s more than 10 years of shooting experience, there is ONE THING that I’ve found. This ONE THING has never changed, and this ONE THING makes me believe in what I do and make me be who I am. This ONE THING is THE TRUE MOMENT. It is real. It happens only once. It stays forever. Therefore, for me, a perfect photo is a capture of the TRUE MOMENT which will keep and tell the story. TRUE MOMENT is my inspiration for shooting every single photo. It’s not just a shooting style…it’s beyond a signature…it is my honest to capture the once in a lifetime moment that I fell in love since the beginning and I will continue my journey as a man who loves capturing the moments.

Sofia wedding and elopement photography by Boris Hristov, of Bulgaria

Hello! My name is Boris. I am 38 years old. I was born in Sofia. Imaginative art and music are two of the basic things I have been doing since my early teaching years, in one aspect have shaped my further life path, and I dare say that they have played a major role in shaping me as a person. At a later stage in my life, as a boomerang, when I graduated my musical education, photography appeared in my life. It seemed to fill a long lost piece of the puzzle of my childhood when my love of the fine art turned into my profession. At various times of the year, I'm busy with various photographic projects. Portrait, wedding, art, advertising, reporting, etc. No matter in which of the chosen styles are my engagements, be it in relation to a personal project or a work for a client, that has always excited me and I hope to be able to convey with my pictures. I capture relationships between people, acquaintances, and strangers. This moment, this day and the world in which we live, tomorrow just will not be the same, and the reminder to us and our children, where we have been, how we lived and who we loved are precisely the memories sealed after the trivial click of the camera. I take pictures as something very personal and intimate, as with my pictures I give people the opportunity to see the world in my personal perspective, where I am passing on their personal emotions, feelings, and worldview. My photographs have participated in several national exhibitions, published in magazines, as well as in the largest online galleries for art photography. I sincerely hope that looking at the pictures in my portfolio, you will be able to experience the emotion and feel the excitement as a participant in them. If so, I'd be glad to get in touch with me, get to know each other and work together. Sincerely, Boris Hristov [Sofia Wedding Photographer]

San Jose Wedding and Elopement Photography by Thanh Vo, of California

My name is Thanh and I am the owner of Dream Lucid Studios. I first fell in love with Hollywood movies and the art of films before transitioning to photography. I believe that's how I develop my style and my approach to wedding photography because I love to tell stories. Since my couples are the story, I want to be able to tell it as genuinely as possible. I want to say that my style is photojournalistic with a touch of ineffable. I don't want to just capture the moment, I want to capture it from a unique perspective. I challenge myself to see and shoot each wedding differently because each wedding is uniquely its own. The venues and locations can be the same, but each couple is not. I really enjoy being able to document the story of my couples and capture all the emotions throughout the day/s by being in the background. My team tries to work like ninjas so that you can fully enjoy your day. I feel like that's how we able to get everybody to be comfortable enough to show their real emotions because they don't feel our presence. [San Jose Wedding Photographer]

The photos have arrived! And of course, we absolutely love them!!! You've really captured the spirit of the day and all the moments that made it special. We can't stop looking at them - there's just so much to see in every photo, and the longer we look at them, the more there is to see! The composition of some of them is just genius. We had such a fun day, and I'm just delighted that we've got these photos to remember it by - we're so lucky we found you. The presentation box and USB key are also gorgeous, such a lovely touch. I can't even imagine how much work went into the photos, we've spent hours and hours just looking at them! So a MASSIVE thank you and AMAZING work. Cat

You are a talented and accommodating photographer. Booking you and your team was very simple and throughout the lead-up to our wedding you were clear and efficient. On the day, you and your team were unfailingly polite and friendly to everyone you came across, and made us and all the guests feel very comfortable in front of the camera. Your team tried the best to accommodate the guests, our family and our demand without complaints. You are great talent for capturing a feeling in an image. You delivered a beautiful set of images that capture many very happy memories despite the occasionally gloomy weather on the day. We were particularly impressed with the shots taken at the rooftop of Excelsior Hotel. I’m sure we will continue to enjoy looking through them for years to come.

To John and his wonderful team, Thank you so much for your amazing work. I can’t thank you enough for doing such a great job at capturing the memories on our special day, just the way we liked. Thanks for being so understanding and completely flexible on the day. We were probably one of your most chaotic clients (we know that) but your team’s and your calm presence was exceptional. We never felt pressured for once on the day and you just went with flow. All the meetings I had with you before the wedding were informative. It was a great idea to have met you properly before the wedding. We absolutely love our videos and the pictures – they bring us back to the day every time we see them. I particularly love how they capture the happiness and emotions of our friends and families, they are priceless and we can’t wait to show them to our friends and families from overseas! John, sincerely thank you again for making our wedding day so memorable. Your creativity and special ability deserves to be recognized. I have no doubt recommending your service to all of my friends and families and I’m looking forward to future collaborations with you and your great team. Best wishes, Kate Chow

I’m always obsessed with having good photos on my special occasion because a single photo can tell a thousand words and always bring back good old memories every time we look at it. Thus, I chose you to picture my wedding because your work has shown me that you tell good story through pictures. And yes, I made the right decision. Every time I look at my wedding pictures now, I can still feel the day because all the emotions and stories were pictured perfectly. I can recall all the smiles, happiness, romance on my big day. Moreover, what I like most is that I can be myself all the time and you just find the right time, right place, right angles to photo me. That’s make things went on smoothly and naturally so that I really have a beautiful ‘story-telling photo essay’ of my wedding days. Thanks so much for making my memories live forever in the pictures.

Ronnie, thank you for being our photographer and documenting our wedding in Hong Kong. We are thankful for the communication and the way you try to understand our wants in the consultation process. The locations you scouted for us were aptly chosen and fit well with our story and background. The candid moments you captured in our homes, the banquet hall, and on the streets of Hong Kong gave us much bragging rights and most of all, the perfect way to cherish a special day. We are also thankful for the extra effort you took in creating the custom-made memory drive and photo box. Thank you very much.

Christelle, one of my bridesmaids who is a wedding planner in London said she'd never seen wedding photographs as lovely as the one's you took. Here's what she wrote me in an email: “I think they really captured the feel of the wedding and the venue and you guys as a couple! I'm sure you must be really happy with them because every one I saw looked like it should go in a frame on a mantelpiece!! It must be so hard to look through them and choose because they really were all unbelievable! Save her contacts for my wedding please!” I'm definitely going to recommend you guys to anyone I know who's planning a wedding!
