• Welcome to Bali Wedding Photo blog !

    A few words about me and my approach as wedding photographer, if I may: I have been a Bali Wedding Photographer for over eight years and have been documenting in excess of 300 Bali destination weddings for couples from across the world. For me wedding photography in Bali is not a profession, but a calling driven by an innate curiosity for what lies beyond the obvious. I am passionate about wedding photography and believe in the power of the enduring still image in our fast paced world where the emphasis is on immediacy. An intimate photograph stops time and allows you to reflect, to relive a moment and above all: TO FEEL. I am consumed with a desire to be an eye witness to the diversity of human emotions and to record all the defining moments of your wedding in Bali. I do so with empathy and honesty. I harness the story-telling power of wedding photo journalism by highlighting your own individuality and through meticulous attention to details. Some people have asked how could I have made such compelling and engaging photographs – my answer is: how could I not…

Honeymoon photographs

honeymoon photographs

Julia & Anton just got married a few days before coming to Bali. Back home they did not have a big wedding, just the paper work. Consequently they were very much keen on having honeymoon / wedding photographs taken during their vacation in Bali.

While researching her options for a photographer in Bali Julia came across my website. She contacted my right away and asked for my availability during her stay in Bali. The only brief Julia gave me was that her honeymoon photographs would need to be natural and should reflect the deep bond between her and her husband.

I never in my entire career had a photoshoot whereby the emotions of the couple transferred into the photos as well as in this shoot. I hardly had to give any instructions or asked for any poses. It all came completely natural. It was so easy and inspiring to work with these two ‘love-birds’. The conditions for this honeymoon photo shoot could not have been any better. Everything was simply perfect. So without any further ado please see in the following my personal favorites of this super inspiring photo shoot:

Pictures of a fun wedding in Bali

Pictures Bali fun wedding

I deliberately choose the word fun in the title of this blog post. Because this wedding was really a fun wedding in Bali. I already knew that its going to be that way, because a few days before the wedding I had a full day pre-wedding session with this wonderful couple from Canada. And rarely did I laugh so much during a photoshoot as with those guys. And this fun-laden atmosphere was equally present on the wedding day.

The wedding took place in one of Bali’s top resorts: AYANA. Cath was getting ready amongst her closest friends who flew in especially for this occasion from Hong Kong. Kevin meanwhile got himself prepared in another room. I liked very much the fact that Cath and Kevin met before walking to the altar and helped each other with the finishing touches.

They then walked together towards the altar where they were greeted by their distinguished friends and family. The ceremony, which on most wedding is a rather serious affair was filled with laughter and fun.

Afterwards we embarked on a phototour around the resort. The light was perfect and we got some truly gorgeous shots. The newlyweds the freshened up before making their entrance into the beautifully decorated reception venue. I documented the first 30 minutes of the reception, which again was mostly fun and laughter. I now leave you with some of my personal favorite impressions:
