If you could have a superpower, what would it be? Definitely I would love to have the ability to slow down time. I want to have more chance to appreciate love, life and everything in between.
How do you like to spend your time when you aren’t shooting weddings? I’m a husband to an extraordinary wife and a father of two adorable kids – I can’t get enough!
How did you get into wedding photography? I started to fall in love with photography back in high school, but at the time there was no chance in pursuing it, since photography is such an expensive hobby. After graduating from University, I had a formal job as a civil engineer, and I finally had enough money to buy my own camera. I remember it was F80, Nikon film camera. After I held my first camera, I just fell in love with photography.
Besides weddings, what would you love to be able to photograph? Landscape photography was my first love. I want to have more time and have a chance to shoot landscape again!
Do you have a favorite camera or lens? My favorite lenses are 35mm and 85mm. I can shoot with those two lenses the whole day, and I shoot with two cameras.
