Tristen & Stefani ~ Portraits in Auckland


The more I got to know them, the more I like Tristen and Stefani. Not only because of their kind souls and fun personality, but because of their work ethics and the perseverance that they put in to reach their goals. Being away from home is already hard enough as it is, but to strive and prosper in a foreign land at a young age takes a strong and determined personality. These two millenials definitely do not meet the stereotype of that term ;)

I had the pleasure of shooting their Chinese wedding ceremony in Kuala Lumpur last year and a few months after, the pleasure of spending a few days in their lovely home in Auckland. It was also then that we had some fun times shooting this set of casual portraits.

Thanks again Tristen & Stefani for having me shoot you guys and not only for being my clients but turning into my friends too :D Do call me when you come home for a visit cos that’ll mean yoga + Burgerlab timeeee!


















P/S :
All the photos in this set were shot with the Sony RX100IV and initially I was a bit apprehensive. I mean, which photographer would shoot a portrait session with a compact camera? But…..I was delighted once we started the session and continued shooting til sunset.

The nifty lil camera was speedy and captured emotive shots way better than I expected. And despite the low light that we had towards the end of the shoot (2nd part of the shoot onwards), quality of the shots were still surprisingly decent. Definitely would recommend the Sony RX100IV if you’re looking for a small compact camera for daily use and also travelling!

An Intimate Church Ceremony ~ Peter & Elisabeth


There’s just so much love between these two that they leave me speechless.
Tears of happiness flowed during this wedding and many laughters of joy was shared throughout.
My heart? It was filled to the brim with gratitude for a job which has given me the opportunity to partake in something so beautiful.

Thank you Peter and Elisabeth for having us shoot the wedding ceremony, your mutual love for each other and God shined through that day and even now, months down the road, I can still remember how happy I felt seeing that. Wishing you both many many happy years of wedded bliss ahead!

Joy & Sean ~ Engagement Portraits


I am a big fan of incorporating some personal touches to couples e-sessions – to make it more real, more them, so that next time when their kids look back on the photos, they’ll be able to see how their parents really were during their courting days.

So when Sean and Joy said they wanted to have not only some casual portraits taken to mark their engagement but also some shots of them working out at the gym, I was elated! Despite being a doctor and a nurse respectively, it wasn’t working in a hospital or being in the medical industry which got these two together but their shared love of the iron which sealed their love for each other.

I’m grateful for not only have been given the opportunity to shoot their engagement AND wedding in Penang just last weekend but also to be able to call these newlyweds my friends. Thanks again “Mr & Mrs Lim” for the honour of photographing some of your life milestones, look forward to many years of friendship with you two!

Here are some of my favourite shots from their engagement shoot last November :D
