WPJA Communiqué: Featured Wedding Photography Articles
While some people live for the hustle and bustle of a big wedding with extravagant décor and an impossibly long guest list, others find these kinds of weddings to be too much hoopla, preferring instead something simpler and quieter, allowing for more intimacy between them and their fiancés on this special day. So how do you infuse your wedding with all the romance but none of the fuss? ALONE AT LAST Many couples these days are opting to elope rather than planning a large wedding. For the no-...Read more
While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way. For a good chunk of the population, any number of the typical wedding day traditions can inspire anxiety and existential dread. This day is all about you, yes, but does that mean all the attention has to be on you as well? FROM VOWS TO CHITCHAT, WHICH REMAINS SACRED?

We are so glad that we found you to be our wedding photographer because you are so friendly, professional, and responsible. You and your team worked wonderfully with our other film/photography crew, which was very important for us because we had three different groups of photographers/cinematographers. You are very professional and communicated with everyone very well so we never had to worry about crew getting into each others way. You were very responsible, always on time and sent us the final photos very promptly after the wedding. You also were really patient with us whenever we had questions or needed his help. You never seemed irritated or unreliable or unreachable, always happy and quick to reply to my messages. Most importantly, you took beautiful photos of our wedding day and captured all our happy and emotional moments. This made us feel very comfortable and ensured we captured all the essential family photos that we will cherish forever. Your photos were very real and natural and we love them very much! We are so glad that we hired you to be our wedding photographer and would highly recommend all our friends and family to book you as well!

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.

Hello John, Thank you for capturing our special moment in both our banquet in Penang and Hong Kong. You managed to snap all our precious moments and your photos truly touched our hearts. You managed to capture all details and looking at our photos truly brings us back to our wonderful wedding again. Your light heartedness made the wedding fun and enjoyable yet all shots taken were professional and artistic. Even showing our photos to those that did not attend our wedding, they could clearly see the romance, joy and fun. A lot of people in Penang have asked for your contact details But unfortunately you are in Hong Kong! You managed very well as a single photographer in our Penang wedding, not easy for a big banquet.
