Why do you shoot in film?
To me, film has this unique feeling of elegance, unadornment, and simplicity that I would like to share with all of you. The texture, tonality, softness, timelessness and aesthetic of the film has all the elements to achieve the style and vision I have.
Would you shoot in digital?
Yes! Film is great but it also has its limitation - hunger for lights. By shooting hybrid (film and digital) we can get the best of both worlds and get the best results in any lighting situations.
What is your approach to photography?
My approach is unobstructive and subtle, so it can preserve the moment and emotion as it happens. I believe this is the best way to create a narrative story that is unique and meaningful to you.
Do you have experiences shooting with different cultured / ethnicity weddings?
Living in London has given me the love of all cultures and meeting new people with different backgrounds. And I have the pleasure to have worked with a range of cultured weddings, including British, Chinese, Japanese, Jewish, Assyrian, Vietnamese, Africans, as well as same-sex weddings.
Who are your clients?
I am always proud of the mixture of clients I attached. I am open to anyone who loves my style of work. And have worked with clients pretty much from all different part of the world.
Do you cover elopements?
I love intimate weddings as well as big celebrations. I am always happy to tailor a photography package that works for you.
What if you are camera shy?
