Alex started his photography career in 2009 when he upgraded from a rusty old compact camera to a state of the art DSLR. His earliest photographs were landscapes and still-lifes until he was asked to photograph a friend’s wedding. From that day forward, Alex knew what his true calling was and decided that he wanted to focus on capturing the beauty of weddings.

 

C&L: How would you describe your style of photography and where do you draw your inspiration from?

Alex: I would say my style is a combination of Classic, Dramatic and Artistic. My inspiration can come from anywhere – traveling, surfing the net, searching for unique settings. A couple years ago, I was at the Malaysia F1 Sepang Cicuit and thought this would be an incredible location for a photo shoot. 2 years later, I was extremely excited that I was able to arrange for an engagement photography session there. I’m proud to say that it was the first engagement wedding photography session ever done in F1 Sepang Circuit.

 

C&L: Is there a place where you would love to photography a wedding but have not get the opportunity to do so yet?

Alex: There are many places I would love to photograph such as London, Paris, Rome, Venice, Santorini because of the heritage architecture.

 

C&L: What can a bride do to prepare for their photo shoot?

Alex: It’s important to discuss with their wedding photographer the overall theme that they are looking for. We need to ensure that we understand and are helping them create their dream settings.

 

C&L: Any advice for the couple on how to select a wedding photographer who best suits them?

Alex: They should obviously look at some of the wedding photographer’s previous work to ensure their style is what the couple are looking for.  It is also essential to meet with the photographer in person to get a feel for their personality. If he/she is the couple’s ideal photographer who meets all their requirement, and they feel confident in him, sign him up !! :)
