Ireyne • Denny: the Wedding

12.29.2007 | Hilton Ontario Airport, ONTARIO

Ireyne and Denny finally made it after years of long distance relationship. One month prior to their wedding day, it was the first time for Ireyne to be in Los Angeles. When the couple stopped by at my studio to pick up their wedding pictures, I asked Ireyne if she likes Los Angeles so far. She said, although there are lots of new things to learn, and obviously many culture shock experiences for her, but she loves Los Angeles. It's all simply because, her new life with her husband: Denny. Wow! That's sweet! Congratulations to both Ireyne and Denny!

12.23-26.2007 | Nikko Hotel, BALI

I went to Indonesia last December, visiting my home town, Jakarta. Usually I just spent my vacation staying in Jakarta. However, on this trip, I went to Bali as part of my vacation plan. My last trip to Bali was years ago, when I was in primary school. I stayed in hotel Nikko, Nusa Dua while in Bali. Unfortunately, the weather was raining pretty much the whole day, every single day I was in Bali! I didn't get chance to walk to any of the beach in Bali, due to the weather. But, I did manage to take few pictures at the hotel and best of all, ate 2 big lobsters on 2 evenings I was in Bali. The trip was well worth it!

Piya • Trevor: the Wedding

12.31.2007 | Millenium Biltmore Hotel, LOS ANGELES

I met Piya and Trevor in 2006, when Piya requested me to capture her mom's birthday party event, through my video lens. She later called me last Summer 2007 and requested if I was available to video capture her wedding day, December 31st, 2007! It was a tough decision for the couple to choose between my video works and photo works. At last, they are not taking chance with their big day's video coverage and trusted me to be their wedding videographer. After the church ceremony, while waiting on the couple's main photographer setting up his equipments, I quickly asked Piya and Trevor if I could sneak few quick pictures with them. Took 5 snapshots of the couple, before it's time for me to pack my video equipments and ran to the magnificent Millenium Biltmore hotel's Gold Room for some detail video works. Here are 4 out of 5 pictures that I took for them.
