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.

Beijing actual day wedding and elopement photography by Vincent MA of China

"Happiness isn't something you experience; it's something you remember." so wrote pianist Oscar Levant, and photos are undoubtedly one of the best carriers of memory. I've been in photography since I was a kid, on a plastic film camera, I was so excited to see the result that I opened the filmback before development, so my first work turned out to be pure blank, it taught me that how important the patience is for photography, the patience for the best mood, the best composition and light, it's the best moment. I photographed my first wedding for my friends way back in 2006, they loved the photos and recommended me to their friends and it snowballed from there, in 2019 I've shot more than 300 weddings, I find the documentary photography fascinating, sometimes frustrating, other times rewarding but always very memorable. I love to tell stories, so wedding photojournalism was a natural fit when I turned my passion into my profession in 2006 (Co-founder of the Magic Wedding photography studio). But, even though my focus is on the moment, I strive to make those moments full of grace and beauty.14 years of photojournalistic experiences are impressive. Hundreds of weddings photographed all around the world. My specialty is creative documentary photography, weaving moments into my images that are iconic symbols of the day. With a background in photojournalism, I am a storyteller at heart and have been recognized internationally for my work. [Beijing Wedding Photographer]

"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!"
