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!

Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding. However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more
While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way.
