TELLING A STORY
She believes that photos need to tell a story. All the best ones do. It’s not good enough to just turn up on the day and start taking photos. She likes to take a more active role.
That’s why she always meet the clients first – so she can get to know them and their needs. It helps her to bring out their personalities in the photos. She also tries to find out every details of your wedding day beforehand too, so that she is prepared to take the best photos possible.
Her aim is to let you relive all your most precious experiences over and over again, and see the beauty in even the smallest things.
“How beauty is found in the existence of tension; light and shadow; sound and silence; simplicity and detail; sublime and ordinary; presence and absence; freedom and restraint; And how everything is connected – everything within a space, the inside and the outside, our surroundings and our minds, in our relationships with each other and ourselves in the web of nature. “ by Beth Kempton.
I love looking at pretty things, we all do.
I can easily spend a very long time looking at and melting into a photo that I love. It shows me a different aspect of life that you don’t normally see with the naked eye.
That’s why great photography is so powerful.
For me, getting the perfect shot is like falling in love! I’m fascinated by all the many perspectives of life captured in a single photograph. Being able to bring my own unique perspective to my work, to express my own shifting feelings, thoughts and experience in a meaningful way, is what fuels my creativity and drives me as a photographer.
I was born and raised in Hong Kong and I’ve been living in the UK for 15 years. It’s an experience that’s given me a love for both cultures, and the ability to speak English, Cantonese and Mandarin. When I’m not working, I love to explore and to get outdoors whenever possible. Whether it’s yoga, swimming, hiking or cycling, I’m very active by nature. And I’m definitely a foodie, in fact I probably think about food more than anything else in life!

SAYHA AND GUA
Excellent! Terry was our photographer for our civil ceremony in London and we were so pleased with how our photos turned out! She managed to capture so many candid moments filled with happiness and laughter. On the day, she was there but you could not really notice she was there - just clicking away in the background, so effortlessly but at the same time so professionally. She made really beautiful photos, we were so glad that we have chosen her to capture the moments of our special day. Thank you so much Terry!!

ELISE AND KINGSLY
My fiancé and I had a full-day Cotswolds Gardens themed pre-wedding photo shoot with Terry in June. It was really the best experience! Terry was very helpful from the start of our contact and her responses were always fast and detailed. I appreciate especially the time and effort she put in to communicate with the garden owners regarding our photo shoot.
We received the photos just one month after the shoot and they are absolutely beautiful; I love Terry's style and the way she constructs a picture! I shared the online gallery with my friends and family, and everyone "wowed" when they looked at the photos. I do feel Terry's photography captured our happiness and excitement (though we are a subtle couple...lol) and she really made our pre-wedding super special! Thank you Terry! I would heartily recommended her to anyone looking to do a professional photo shoot.
