Simple but full of joy and love, a wedding that had everyone involved. It was my first time hearing the story between Jennifer and Luke at the ceremony and I was touched (although I was busy shooting around the couple). The proposal was thoughtful but funny. Once again, congratulations to Jennifer and Luke!!!

Sydney, a place that I am quite familiar with. However, this was my first time shooting a wedding in Sydney.
The day went very smooth and both Abass and Zita were beautiful. That was also my first time going to an African wedding, very unique experience. (a lot of first times ^.^)
I met the couple in Melbourne in June and they were my first engagement portrait clients. Seeing them getting married at the wedding means a lot to me. Thank you Abass and Zita for giving me this honour to shoot the wedding.
(p.s a special mention to the crazy driver Toni. You let me know I can never drive in Sydney…. thanks!)
I never knew there is a popular national park near me, but thanks to Katie I have now got a great spot to spend for my coming weekends.
People were hiking, cycling, running, picnic and BBQ in the park and the atmosphere was so great (probably to celebrate the Father’s Day too?)
Katie and Niall were obviously not familiar with posing and we couldn’t stop laughing while Niall did the running pose ^.^ That was definitely the highlight of the day …
They are a lovely couple and I am sure they will make a great family.
Congratulations Katie and Niall!
It was my first time going to a home that has such a huge “backyard”. I felt like walking in a national park!!!
The weather was bad but it didn’t stop the love….Simone and Daniel had their engagement shots at their family home and “backyard”.Thank you to Daniel for opening up a shy Simone on the day! I had great fun playing with their little bouncy doggy (Jasper?).
Thank you Simone and Daniel to have us over, it was definitely a memorable day.

It was a truly memorable day. Started with the touching moments from Susan’s sister, bridesmaids and dad and ended with the joys from everyone. “Simple is the Best” – I totally agree with this!
When you are in love, you don’t have to do anythings to tell others. Because others can feel your happiness by just standing next to you… Meeting Erin and Ben today reminded how I met my wife long time ago ^.^ and what is real happiness!

I met a very lovely couple from Sydney today, Abass and Zita.
After 2-hour of shooting, Abass showed an angry face to the camera (which was me!) and he looked different in every shots since then. I was threatened and later was told that because he was HUNGRY and needed a break. I couldn’t help laughing because my wife does the same thing when she needs food.
Abass and Zita, we wish you a memorable wedding and a happy married life after.

This was my first engagement shoot and I had a lot of fun with Allen and Yasuko on that day. They are a very nice and friendly couple who bring happiness to others.
Allen met Yasuko in Japan and fell in love in the first sight. Yasuko is a sweet girl and she had a pretty smile throughout the day. Allen was a challenge to me in the beginning as he wasn’t comfortable in front of the camera. But just after a few shots, he was more relaxed and started posing for me to shoot. It was a cloudy day with some showers but luckily the weather turned sunny when we got to Studley Park. I wish you a wonderful wedding in Shanghai!
