His passion in documenting weddings is with the hope that these precious images will serve as valuable mementos for the couple to admire and remember upon fondly as they embark on their journey of life together. A very keen learner and hands-on individual, he acquired most of his skills in photography and post-production of his images through self-learning and experimentation.

Everything from the emotions of the day to the unexpected events that unfold, wedding photography is what really fills me.

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 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]

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.

I was born in Sai Gon - Vietnam, but I have influence in wedding photography of foreign countries very much. It happened in the period of my working time in New Zealand. That had been a great time in my life and it informs my style in wedding photography. Emo Wedding is an idea when I had lived in New Zealand. It kind of my child that I have spent a lot of time to build it up. It takes a long time to inform and grow up until now. Fine Art, Hipster, Boho in engagement and mix of modern in wedding journalism are things I am following in photography. I photograph emotion and natural moments.

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.
