There are many ways to keep your precious wedding photos. The best way I always suggest is hard copies and good quality prints meant to last many years. The main reason for all my wedding packages to include prints is a way I would like to involve the married couple to connect with their families and friends. When they hold on to the prints to share them around is a connection through their emotions. With digital copies, people only looking at the screen and sharing them through the Internet made them less connected.
With an option to invest in the high quality photo albums, the wedding day journey can be told through the beautifully crafted book. These albums are hand crafted flush mount with either leather or fabric cover. They come in 10×10″ or 12×12″ and also 6×6″ mini, optional when ordering with the main album. The photos below can’t justify the quality of the actual album. I would love to show them in person, so contact me by email or send me a message on my facebook page!

September is the start of spring in Perth and it is the perfect weather for weather. Often we get pretty sunshine that makes flowers and trees glow even more. Megan and Christopher chosen Belvoir Venue Collection in Upper Swan as the venue for their ceremony and reception. This location is one of the prettiest surrounded with rustic truck and tractor as well as pretty garden.

A few of my favorite portraits at Ning and Yang’s wedding in Queens Park, East Perth. It was a very sunny winter day and thus created these beautiful images.

Providing premium services from start to end is the goal for my business. Especially the post wedding work such as fine tuning photos and packaging the final product. I believe going through this process personally is important as I value my clients. So everything from proofing the prints, printing the disc covers, sourcing the packaging materials and wrapping it all were done by my hands. Importantly, I wrote the thank you note and tide it on the box.
To keep things simple for the packaging, I use tissue papers, ribbons and paper box. I stick to my brand color theme yellow and grey and they work really well no matter they are in light or dark tone. All the materials can be found from laladesigns.com.au in Leederville.
I’m still going through the process of finalizing my packaging. Would like to use as much recycled material as possible. Such as putting the disc in a recycled paper pocket instead of a plastic case. I found a range of products from Loktah which will work nicely into my style.

P.S. I think I’m pretty good at tiding the bow. :)

Nell from South Africa and Jeremy from America. Two fun people got married in Perth under the perfect weather. Nell’s family travelled from Cape Town to attend the wonderful wedding. All of bridesmaid’s dresses were handmade by her mum from home, and they were perfect fit.
The ceremony was at Harold Boas Garden in West Perth. The place is surrounded with beautiful trees and water flows through the landscape. There were plenty of areas for location photos. Nell was so daring, jumping across to the rock in the water and across the water stream to get to some spots. All I could say was be careful and then press the shuttle button.

Mandurah is less than 2 hours from Perth. With the ceremony located near the water front. The groom and groomsmen cruised to the location in their own boat. I spent the half day capturing the bride and bridesmaids getting ready, the ceremony and on location photos with the couple and their party.


At the end of the day, the after sunset color in the sky matched perfectly with the purple color theme from the girls. The whole day from getting ready, to the ceremony and location photo session. I saw so much joy and laughters from the bridal and groom’s party. I could feel the bond and friendships between each individual. Blesses to Kendel and Jamie and their family and friends.

Red Tree Album is here

March 26, 2012

The Red Tree photo album has finally arrived. This is the first ever order from the Red Tree and I had no hesitation to let my client know that I’m ordering them something even I haven’t seen it in person. They trusted me and I trusted Red Tree to provide the highest quality they could deliver. And they did not disappoint me neither the album craftsmanship nor the photo prints. The prints on fuji crystal archive paper came out as what I see from my calibrated screen. The Japanese silk fabric is so pretty with the texture that sets apart from the leather.

For this album, Nicole selected the Tuscan Red fabric which is well suited for her Chinese background. The debossing is minimal to show the simplicity and elegancy of the album. As how I preferred, the album is lay-flat binding with thick pages.

Now that I have seen the actual product from Red Tree, I will order their sample album and swatches soon to let my clients see them in person.

I will provide Red Tree albums in 10×10 and 12×12 with minimum of 10 spreads (20 pages). A mini size of the original is also available in 5×5.

This was a wedding held in Fremantle near the Authur Head Reserve, which is just outside of Kailis Fish Market Cafe. It was a morning ceremony with breakfast at the reception. Simple and relax was the way Susan and Andrew wanted for their wedding. I fitted in perfectly with my journalistic photography style, capturing the event and the details of the day.

For Sarah and Owen’s wedding, I was a 2nd photographer along side Paul at Blaque Studios. Whether I’m the main photographer or a 2nd photographer. I work with the same mindset. I capture the flow of the wedding and the details on the day. The main difference is that I am able to see things in another angle while Paul is doing his tasks. This adds more varieties on the photos for the wedding coverage.

The wedding ceremony and the banquet was held at Chapel Farm in Swan Valley. The venue is very pretty itself with a vineyard next door. It’s perfect with the sun setting behind.

The set of images are processed with the new presets by VSCOfilm. Speed up my workflow even more!

This is the first time I photographed an Indian couple and witnessed their colorful dresses. Their wedding gown is something special. It is unlike the Chinese gowns where only focuses on the crafting on the dress. Indian wedding gowns are designed to make the bride really pretty and able to move lightly without breaking the dress. Their jewelries and body painting is amazing too. Although it wasn’t a full traditional Indian wedding, but it was a fantastic experience.
