I'm a friendly photographer with more than 12yrs of experience in Portrait photography, specialising in Family Photography, Wedding coverage, Maternity shoots as well as personal and commercial event shoots. I have started my own company with good reviews and recommendations from clients for my friendly yet professional services :)

How did you get started with photography | Videography?: I was looking at Nat Geo magazines and was in awe of the pictures they took for insects, animals, journalism coverage, thinking to myself, "How did they know it is the right moment? How did they stop time like that, so...beautifully" So I went to the IT fair and got myself a entry level DSLR, started shooting little critters and scenery, I thought photography is just about being at a place full of wildlife and a good scenery as I never thought about shooting people... Until my friend begged me to be his wedding photographer. It turns out that my first wedding photoshoot was so well loved by the guest and the couple, they were asking who did the shoot for the newlyweds. It was the first time I did a Portrait shoot, Pre-wedding shoot and Actual Day wedding at the same time also (plus, I get paid...haha!)
What do you love about your job?: Capturing the happy moments for people is so important to me. The photos are pictures that will last for a very long time inscribed with the happy, glorifying or the best moments in some parts of their lives. I believe in sincerity and making my clients feel like they are having a shoot by a friend, not just a photographer. I do not want my clients to cringe at the photos and think of it as something unmemorable (and yes, you paid for it) I had my fair share of bad photography experience at my Pre-wedding shoots and I thought NO ONE should ever go through this kind of bad services with end products that is making you feel bad for making the wrong choices for important moments in your life (ok, I know it sounds too heavy like this but at that point I felt that way after looking at the images :( )
