Full Day Wedding Photography

Your wedding is likely going to be the most important life milestone to date. To have a fun, relaxing celebration, things should not be rushed. For this reason alone, I am among a rare breed of photographers that offer a truly full-day coverage. From the morning when you’re getting ready right through to the end when you are fist pumping on the dance floor. 15 hours? 18 hours? I will be there with you through all of it.

This is Your biggest celebration.
And You deserve to remember it all.

Groom getting ready

This is typically a part of the wedding day where the bride is not meant to see before the ceremony. Your man’s nervousness when he is rehearsing his vows, what he gets up to with his mates, and more importantly, his many tries to get his tie at just the right length, in other words, the length he goes to just to look better than his ‘Sunday best’, just for you.


Bride getting ready

The beginning of the Bride’s side of the story. Similarly, this is the part where the Groom misses out before the ceremony. Your brides maids will be giving you last minute advices on how not to trip while walking down the aisle, while getting all excited for you at the same time. It is the last moments you spend with your mom and dad as a single lady. I will be there to photograph your wedding dress, your accessories, and all these moments that happen in the process. I will also take beautiful portraits of you in that absolutely stunning dress.

Wedding Ceremony

The moment everybody is waiting for. The venue is fully decorated with flowers, everyone is waiting in anticipation. The music starts and step by step you walk down the aisle with your dad. If you did not do a first look before this, you will see your man resisting his jaw from dropping when he sees you in your stunning wedding dress. Emotions fill the air. While you have your eyes focused on your better half, I will be there to help you see and remember everything that happens around you.

Candid Moments

The Raw,
genuine you.

Most photographers will agree that these are the toughest photographs to capture. Which is why these are priceless and most precious.

Moments like these happen anywhere, at anytime, so quickly that usually before you realise it, it is over and gone forever. It requires a lot of attention, awareness and experience to know where to anticipate the action. Fortunately, these are what I love. I trust my gut and instinct to feel every moment around me. I am constantly looking for that sudden burst of laughter, that cheeky smile, the sneaky wiping of tears, etc and you will see this being evident in my photographs. Your wedding will be bringing lots of joy to the people around you and I want you to be able to enjoy them forever.

Location photoshoot

Sometime during the day we will set some time aside for you to get some awesome photos at various locations. Depending on your schedule, this can happen before or after your ceremony, and even on a separate day (see pre-wedding). These are for you to print as a feature, whether be is hung on your wall or a double spread in your wedding album. You can do it at the same location together with dear ones who attended your ceremony, or at a location of your choice with just your bridal party for a more intimate session. It is basically another way to appreciate and remember everyone who came to celebrate with you. I prefer a more natural and fun vibe that shows your personality. Expect lots of laughter, lots of smiles with sprinkles of guidance and bad jokes to leave no room for awkwardness. Most of the time you will be able to just enjoy each other’s presence and forget that I am around.

Wedding Reception

The formalities are done, it’s time to fellowship and feast. Father daughter dance, first duet, speeches, performances, cake cut, bouquet toss.
However you choose to celebrate, I will celebrate with you and help you remember it all, while making you look good at it!

Wedding Details

the little things that count

Like organising any event, you would have had to put a lot of thought into every little thing (or who should be making these decisions) - the colour scheme, font styles, types of flowers, dress style, type of cake, flavour, texture…. all these do not go unnoticed. In fact, these are what truly shines and complete your wedding story. I will make sure that all these things that you have put effort into get the appreciation it deserves.


"We would highly recommend you to anyone looking for a great photographer. You are fun to work and very professional. The final package presented to us was of a very high professional detail and quality."

Full day coverage,
Peace of mind,
No hidden charges.

I never treat weddings as business. I approach every wedding very personally and professionally like it is my best friend getting married, as I know that these are what you will be keeping to enjoy with your family and friends for years and years to come.

You want to remember being surrounded by the people you love, those that help define who you are – as a wife, as a daughter, as a son, as a grandchild. These are what matter to you. Not photos. Not videos.

You want meaning. And that is what we deliver.

If you've come this far,
You must have felt
connected somehow.
