I believe in the power of stories: they invoke emotions and impact lives, not to mention last a lifetime. And that is the motivation behind my journalistic style, which is really to capture moments in order to present a compelling story, complete with a plot and casts to tell a good story. My clients' story. I started photography back in 2008 but turned professional in 2011. From 2009, I was already the resident photographer for my school (where I worked as a teacher) and it was there that I honed my event photography. I also taught in the photography club, which helped me develop a way of making the technical simple, even to teens. Besides weddings, architecture and landscape has been a much loved photographic genre for me, which to me is not unlike weddings. Because when I stand before a majestic view (be it a countryside or a skyscraper or a special wedding), immediately I'd think: where should I stand? Which angles to take? How do I best represent this moment/place in photos? How do I tell a story? Because at the end of the day, stories matter. Especially to wedding couples, when their special day become beautiful memories. [Singapore Wedding Photographer]

Ho Chi Minh wedding day photography by Huy Che Hoang of Vietnam

Do you believe in so-called "conditions"? Huy always believed that because God had led Huy to the cause of his life, it was the art path, more specifically, it was the path of being a photographer. Everyone had a confused and anxious youth, Huy was fortunate to be able to escape the dead end. At first Huy was just a teenage boy holding a camera with his friends, fascinated with the pictures he took with the world through the lens. For a long time, Huy found the passion and excitement when photographing the bride and groom, weddings and smiles filled with happiness. Huy's goal is to tell your wedding stories through pictures with a sincere and intimate perspective. Huy believes that the wedding photos are not only boring through the awkwardly arranged photos, but also the pictures full of emotion and true happiness of the bride, groom and the participants. Huy always believes that Huy is not a photographer, he is the one who tells the story of people through pictures. For Huy, Huy will respect and convey the messages that God brings as life, love, happiness. [Ho Chi Minh Wedding Photographer]

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.

But with naturally-captured ones, you remember the feelings and the story behind.

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!

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.

The moving moment of the wedding is a fleeting moment that cannot be repeated. It is only once in a lifetime. We try our best to keep all the memories of the day for each couple. Maybe it is the shy expression of the bride, the look of the groom, the parents’ reluctance. Tears, happy smiles, these pictures are the most beautiful memories. I like to record happy times and write a picture that the newcomers have not noticed on the day so that you can be deeply touched when you relive the photos for many years. Wedding photography is not just a record, but the camera leaves the temperature of the day, presenting the story of your day. I hope that I will have the opportunity to be a friend who records your story, record the moment of change, and capture the picture of your life once. I am married, Jimmy Lee.

Dear Charles, Will and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you dearly for your wonderful job in taking my family and my friends (and myself!) in picture during our wedding. Our wedding was tiny and very unprepared but you showed up full of creativity and making up along the way with the environment. One picture shows us in the reflection of a candy bar machine, the picture is fantastic and it really shows how talented you are and how easy you can improvised. I wish you all the best and advise everyone who wish to ensure that their wedding pictures will be perfect not to think twice in taking you!
