Remember your best moments

When you look back at your wedding, I'd like for you to remember the smiling faces of your family and friends, and the warmth you feel when you are joined as a couple. As your wedding photographer, I let you enjoy and remember your big day, instead of turning it into a frenzy of photo ops.

My pride and joy is to develop a relationship that helps my clients feel at ease in front of the camera.

It's my job to let you have fun!

My photography adventures began with my first film SLR camera as a high school sophomore. I have since graduated with a degree in Molecular Environmental Biology at UC Berkeley (Go Bears!) and worked in medical research before putting my full time efforts as a photographer.
After spending some wonderful years in San Francisco, I have moved back to my home city Hong Kong and brought along my sunny personality and natural aesthetic for wedding and portrait photography.
It gives me such honor to witness so many emotional moments with my clients, such as surprise marriage proposals, a wedded couple's first kiss, the arrival of a newborn… Let me be there for you too!

Here are some questions you may have… Hope I’ve answered them sufficiently! You can always contact me with further questions.

What sets you apart?

Before your session or wedding, I always put in time to prepare with you and ensure that we’re on the same page in terms of the timeline, locations, and other details. Though we may start off our working relationship as complete strangers, during the planning process and the actual photoshoot we would get to know each other better.

As your photographer, I believe that my job isn't only about knowing techniques or how to use my equipment. As your prewedding photographer, I give you some directions but let your true personalities show on camera. At your wedding, I interact with you and your guests to make everyone at ease. While shooting portraits, I bring out your genuine smiles by bringing out your inner spark, or just being plain silly!

Think of me as your new friend, and let yourself shine. I hope that when you look at your photos, it brings back your fond memories of the moment.

What do you shoot with?

I shoot with professional grade digital Canon camera gear. Though I prefer to shoot with natural light, I also bring along portable flash units and a reflector to use when necessary.

  • Canon 5DII
  • Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L II
  • Canon 24-105mm f/4L
  • Canon 50mm f/1.2L
  • Canon 50mm f/2.5 macro
  • Canon 20mm f/2.8 USM

What is your pricing?

My headshot and family portrait sessions begin at $2,300.

-Alfred Tennyson

How long is the turn around?

From the time of our photoshoot, post production includes a lengthy process: transfering your precious photographs onto my computer hard drive and backing them up; selecting and narrowing down the photos that go into your final collection; making adjustments to enhance the photos; uploading them to your online gallery; and, if applicable, transfering your final collection onto a custom USB drive to ship to you.

The amount of time it takes for your photos to be ready depends on what type of photoshoot we did together.

  • For portraits and prewedding/engagement photos: 2 weeks
  • For wedding photography: 4 weeks
  • For commercial photography: varies

You can always speed up the turn around by adding a rush fee.

-Charles Mingus

Do you travel for photography work?

Of course! Though I’m a Hong Kong-based photographer, I enjoy going where my clients want to be for their prewedding photos or wedding day.

Simply contact me with the details and we can work it out together.
