I have been a wedding photographer for 9 years, currently based in Singapore. Other than doing local weddings, I also do destination photo-shoots. Apart from winning several international photo awards over the years, more notably, I also won 1st place in an international wedding photo competition in 2013. It propelled me to be ranked top 100 (no. 33 to be exact!) wedding photographer worldwide by the WPJA (Wedding Photojournalist Association), the largest wedding photography association internationally.

This photo was taken in New Zealand. We chartered a helicopter to fly up 4000 feet to this place, and we were greeted with an awesome view of the lake. It was quite hilly, so I had the couple standing on a knoll whilst I took the photo from a higher place to get the lake as the background.
Before I took this shot, the sun set behind the mountain range on my left, so I get really good balanced light on the couple, the grassy foreground and the lake.
Walking around the area is physically tiring because it’s a very hilly place. Kudos to my couple who endured the 12-degree celcius wind for a good 5mins while I climbed to the other knoll to get this photo.

I deliberately composed my couple to look small in the photo because I wanted to show the scale of the location. Also, the triangle grassy area serves as leading lines towards the couple, which makes the photo more impactful.
Canon 5D MKIII, 50mm f1.2. Shot at f4, 1/250, ISO320. Centre-weighted metering.

Very little post processing work is done, this image practically an out of camera shot. Other than using Dodge and Burn tool to brighten the grassy foreground a little. The couple love it! They even did a canvas print of this photo!

Our work goes beyond the click of the camera, I try to get involved with the couple, always willing to do something different, always working together as a team on their wedding da
