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!

Kuala Lumpur wedding photography by Ameirfikri Mohd Nasri of Wilayah Persekutuan, Malaysia

I am Ameirfikri, a Malaysian-Based Wedding Photographer, from Kuala Lumpur. Professionally engaged in wedding photography since 2018. My passion for photography began when I started traveling and discover the beauty of capturing memories of individuals around me. My journey as a wedding photographer becomes apparent as I fall in love with the concept of the coming together of two individuals that are passionate, loving, and desire to be forever as one. I conceptualize my ideas through my eyes, and how my environment takes me. Attention to people, details, and context enables me to create a unique collection of images to complete the story of human interactions and all of the characters present at the wedding. I let my image tell the story, sometimes as a stand-alone photograph and sometimes as a series of images within the context of the whole wedding day. Capturing them without direction and unposed will bring genuine feelings and emotions into my images. Thus far, I had attained the achievement I always dream of, and these little steps gave me a sense of accomplishment. As my work has been published in The Wedding Notebook, Rock My Wedding, The Wedding Scoop, Rangefinder, and The Brible. I look forward to many adventures to come forward for me to discover.

Ho Chi Minh wedding and elopement photography by Huy Che Hoang of Vietnam

Huy fell in love with photography very late, it was from the middle of 2016. At first, Huy, like the others, was passionate about photography, wanting to capture the moments only. But gradually Huy became increasingly passionate and decided to follow until now. At that time, wedding photography was not just about capturing ordinary moments anymore, brides and grooms at that time not only required the set of photos to be true, beautiful but also unique. In fact, each couple brings their own special things and special emotions, so Huy must record them artfully. It was indeed very difficult, but it helped Huy develop himself. Huy's photo shoots can be seen that Huy places great emphasis on spontaneity and honesty. Because Huy always thinks that "Huy is not a photographer, Huy is the one who tells people's stories through pictures". Therefore, Huy always ensures the best quality image to the bride and groom even the most difficult bride and groom. But Huy feels that he still has to work harder, put more effort, and learn more so that he can develop more. Huy doesn't want to be tied to the traditional wedding photography styles that Huy still wants. experience more. Huy not only shoots wedding reportage but also pre-wedding, street-life, family…. Huy has also experienced shooting in many different places such as Singapore, Malaysia, Cambodia, Thailand ... Since then, Huy found that the photos need to bring out the beauty of the couple and the surroundings. [Ho Chi Minh Wedding Photographer]

After investing in photography, I found that I like to record a variety of stories with my camera. After walking through many countries, I discovered that talent is the most beautiful thing. I have been fascinated by the so-called photographer’s eye and the photographer’s composition rules. I found out that I didn’t have such a foul, I wanted to shoot more different pictures. I like to take care of the process of preparation, and what I can do with my imagination. All the happiness and stories of the day are the feelings that cannot be measured by value for a lifetime.
