Elopement Photographers for Small Asia Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Indonesia wedding event is a wedding photojournalist’s dream: a fairly open schedule with lots of breathing space for creativity – it’s just the photographer, the couple, the officiant, and perhaps a few select companions.

Bali wedding and elopement photography by MangKhris Santika of Indonesia

My name is Mang Khris. I was born in Bali. This beautiful island is known as the Island of Gods. I am deeply interested in carrying on the very vast and unique traditions of my community. The first time I came in contact with the world of photography was in 2006. I then used a DSLR camera, which was a gift from a friend. This brought me closer to learning about the amazing world of photography. With three years of experience in photography, I began focusing on weddings predominantly. [Bali Wedding Photographer]

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]

I love my job. I love being able to warp time at a click of my finger. I love how these captured moments encapsulate the intangibles like love and memories. Now looking back in retrospection, I’d still proudly say that I’ve never regretted this career switch; from the engineering industry to wedding photography. My love for photography keeps me going but nothing beats seeing my clients’ faces light up after having seen the photos or receiving satisfied reviews. It is a privilege to be included in these milestones and I’ll continue to document and preserve these memories in the way I know best. In our eyes, we see the difference!

Ho Chi Minh wedding photography by Thai Le, of Vietnam

I am a destination wedding photographer based in Viet Nam and worldwide available. After 3 years working in the industry, I’m seeing myself as a story teller not a story maker. I love to tell your real story my way. A real love doesn’t need artificial moments. I don’t set up any shots, I don’t put you into poses. I capture the real life, true moments of your day, respect your moments as they happen. After all, on looking at photos with poses, you only remember being posed. But with naturally-captured ones, you remember the feelings and the story behind. For me, Photography is my way to communicate with people and wedding photography is what I love to do so I always give you my passionate, creative, professional attitude and unrelenting energy in your big day. [Ho Chi Minh Wedding Photographer]

Oftentimes when people are considering a venue for their weddings, they search for a location away from home, whether that be ten minutes or ten hours, all just to find what they already have: a place that holds meaning for them, that feels comfortable, or that they find special and memorable. But what could hold more memory, meaning, and importance than your own home? For those looking for that perfect venue, it may not be any further than beyond your threshold.Read more
Not everyone has a lagoon or glacier next door, but there's no rule saying you can't have a small wedding in the great outdoors. Take advantage of natural sunshine and that open, airy feeling and give your guests some room to breathe! LESS IS MORE Instead of hemming your guests in on all sides, give them some elbow room, and legroom, too. There's no need to induce claustrophobia when you've got a wide, open space.

We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions. However, as people cut back on non-essential little luxuries here and there, one constant remains: weddings. People don’t tend to just stop getting married due to a poor economy, nor should they! So, in an industry that keeps on going through thick and thin, what are some things to expect for the future, and what is really necessary to still make that wedding day memorable and...Read more

"Thank you to Vincent and his team for capturing our wedding day so perfectly! It wasn’t an easy job, I know! We gave you very little guidance on what we wanted and what was going to happen during our fun but chaotic wedding. But you went ahead and improvised when needed and the memories you captured are so real and wonderful! It was everything I had hoped for and more!"
