Photographing Sam and Vic’s big day started when my colleague asked me if she could hire me as a gift for her best friends. It was meant to be a simple 3-hour shoot to serve as their pre-wedding. I said sure, she set up a meeting and before I know it, I was already discussing with Sam and Victoria to shoot their big day. I have to say that I was glad that I was chosen and that we hit it off during that meeting. Because it was a beautiful wedding. Sam and Vic was so relaxed (probably the most…

One of the questions that I normally get during wedding consultation is how would you describe your style?

The question have been asked. Why do the promotion? I could easily have kept to my pricing, shot lesser weddings and still save up enough to get what I wanted to get. That is true. And I probably can. That seems like a sensible thing to do. But I wanted to do it in a specific time frame. And I wanted it to be quick. And I wanted to see if my work could garner your trust a year ahead of time. While the price for the package is relatively low, the payment terms are exactly the same. That means…
