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.

Good morning David! I've just finished viewing all the photos! Thank you for such nice photos and I like the way you've captured everyone's expression. I actually teared when I looked through the photos especially when it comes to my parents. So glad that Louis introduced you to us and we are so thankful and happy that we made the right choice to have you on our wedding day!
