“How did you start wedding photography?”
Wedding photography wasn’t what I planned for from the beginning. I actually started out as a fashion/editorial photographer. My goal for photography was to become a world-class commercial photographer, working with top magazines like Vogue, Elle. I knew my passion is photography. That was why I invested so much in gears and knowledge and did what I liked, taking photos. Many people loved my photos and said I was so talented. But many other photographers had the same story, didn’t they? So … “Who am I?”
For all those years doing fashion photography, I felt like there was something missing, a big one. “Why do I do that?”, I asked myself for many times. Was it because of fame, because of money, or because it satisfied me? I couldn’t figure out … Till one day, a wedding photographer, my first mentor for whom I have so much respect, asked me to shoot with him. I was hooked. My whole world changed and I found the missing piece.
Unlike fashion photography where my work would be soon forgotten, wedding photography is where it has a profound meaning to someone – someone like you. I know the photographs I take today will be treasured for many generations. I don’t want millions of people to see my photographs. I just want a little family, perhaps your family, to look at my photographs and remember all the happiness you had on the most beautiful day of your life.
This is why I become a wedding photographer!
