Tropical garden wedding. Penang, Malaysia.

I am still pretty stoked and grateful having the pleasure to photograph this beautiful destination wedding. Effie and Winstons’s ceremony was held in the tropical garden of the Rasa Sayang close to the beach. Totally admired Effie’s vintage inspired look, she wore a stunning 20’s inspired long veil that she designed herself. The Lush Garden was the perfect setting for this intimate wedding, totally unique with a spiral seating plan. ‘Tropical’ definitly made itself visual with some dramatic clouds and some intense rain. Luckily it stayed dry just in time for the ceremony. In the morning a traditional chinese tea ceremony was held. The evening was spent in Feringhi garden, which made the tropical feel complete with orchids and plants literally everywhere. The day after the wedding we went for a stroll around George Town to take some more portraits. Effie and Winston just moved to Hong Kong from Shanghai, where we also took their Pre-Wedding Photos.

Venue: Rasa Sayang, Penang // Reception: Feringhi Garden

Green Infusion. Bali.

Sometimes it’s time for a green infusion. Reconnecting with nature. Detoxing your senses. Breathe. Green therapy. Bali is just about the perfect place for a good dose of green therapy. Beyond grateful for spending some time around Ubud, Bali in November. It was just about time for an instant decompression from Shanghai city life. So after a few first days doing nothing, listening to frogs and cycadas, my favorites came up naturally: yoga, exploring, photography. Perfect combination. Part One of our editorial inspired project took place in the lush jungle in the sanyan river valley – you can check it out here. For these images below, we went for a walk around the rice paddies and climbed a bamboo treehouse. Bali, endless inspiration and a place that could be getting you a bit closer to yourself. Breathe it all in. Already looking forward to go back 2015 to spend some more green time there.
Model & Styling: Birte Heitmann // Treehouse: Bambu Indah

Koh Samui Destination Wedding.

To describe Aiwee and Warren destination wedding on Koh Samui, Thailand is pretty easy: classy, tropical and most of all a joyous celebration of love and life with family and friends. Again the weather made a dramatic appearance, but stayed calm and dry for all most of the time. Incredible grateful capturing this stunning international wedding with many guests travelling from Hong Kong and Australia. Congratulations Aiwee and Warren – keep rockin’! Here are a few impressions of the day, while the night ended wildly in the pool displaying the next level of aquarobics.

Venue: Le Meridien Koh Samui

Day after Wedding Portraits. Penang.

Let’s start with the end. We went for a morning stroll in George Town, Penang. The day after their destination wedding. Effie and Winston got married a day earlier in a beautiful garden under some majestic trees. They choose the tropical island of Penang, Malaysia, which seemed the perfect fit. Both into architecture and design, the excitement about rugged wall patina, colors, decor and interesting graphics was mutual. Quirkyness came easy. Totally enjoyed shaping some interesting shots together spiced up with some flowing inspiration. More excitement from Penang and Shanghai to follow shortly.
