My first experience with wedding photography was with my brother’s wedding back in 2004. Previously I had been active with photography for many years and even took photography classes in college. When the opportunity arose, I was happy to help my brother with the photography at his wedding, and I was pleased with the outcome. Through the lens of my camera, I witnessed many beautiful and memorable moments. Years later, those pictures continue to bring our family the same joy and happiness we felt that day.
After my brother’s wedding, I photographed weddings for friends, colleagues, and relatives. Gradually, I found myself enjoying engagement and wedding photography, not only because I was able to preserve life’s most important moments , but also because I derive a real sense of happiness from successfully capturing an entire story in photos. Through my work as a photographer, I am able to translate fleeting moments into lasting visual reminders of the intimacy, love, and celebration shared by couples and their loved ones.
My technical experience grew and I received more and more assignments. The job of a photographer is not as simple as it appears. It requires countless skills and specific techniques. In a sense, it requires acting like a news or sports journalist, being fast and sensitive, but also meticulous like a fashion studio photographer, keeping all artificial light and environmental light well under control. All of this must be choreographed in very period short time. It is my firm opinion that engagement and wedding photography is actually more than simply recording something, but narrating a unique story.
My style is devoted to telling a love story through the combination of photo journalism and artistic expression. To achieve this, I establish a relationship with my clients, by listening to their stories and working together to let everything from the nuances and subtleties to the humor and playfulness of the relationship shine through in each photo. Each photo session is a beautiful experience in and of itself as couples gradually become comfortable - as if in their own world - and less conscious of the camera. The photo shoot often becomes yet another fun and rewarding memory.
Many people may ask why I named my website Platinum Water. To me, platinum means faith and persistence; one only needs to look at their wedding band to see a strong metal that will stay with you unchanged for your entire life. Water, to me, means love. People say love is like fire, but I say love is like water; sometimes they are so quiet and peaceful, sometimes they have ripples, and some time they are so rough and powerful that can bring everything down. Platinum Water is just a name, but is backed by high quality photography delivered with enthusiasm and commitment to each couple’s happiness with the final product.
