I am based in Sydney, but also travel worldwide.
My aim is to be in the moment and capture love stories artfully and intentionally. Preserving emotions & focusing on the mood and feel.

Writing this post made me wish I could travel back to tell my old self: Go add some more cute stuffs to my wedding shopping list! LOL
It’s your dream day, so do however you want. Be bold, be amazing, be the queen.
I understand that the most important thing on your wedding day is the true connections and real moments. But I also would love to see some fun elements when reliving my best day ever. Intimate portraits are so essential, but adding some props to spice things up doesn’t hurt, right?
Here I share with you some of my fave trends and ideas and I hope you will find them helpful!
If you have been following some wedding blogs, magazines, or just simply looking for inspirations on instagram or Pinterest. You must have seen this trend has been popping everywhere. The thick frames, hearted cat-eyes, or funky rectangle shapes are basically the queens in this trend. Not that you have to follow the trend, but I admit it does create a fun and bubbly mood to the images.
I recommended to pair them with short bridal dress or suits to complete the modern bride look.
This is possibly the easiest and the hardest mission to tackle in this post to me as there are so many gorgeous jewellery brands out there!
I have probably too many faves! This can even be another post for another time. Think golden petals, pearls, and dangling tassels!
This is one of my fave wedding hairstyles along side crowns and headbands. It’s simple, elegant and versatile. It can be urban and sleek, it can also be vintage and feminine. Wear them with hair down or a low pony tail to nail this look.
This is something that I will probably wear if choosing a slightly simpler style honestly. (Just slightly, otherwise we are missing the point, right?)
You can even just wear it during the makeup session or let bridesmaids to wear for matching styles. How cool will that be?

You know what? Veil never fails. Never.
No matter it’s that desert boho vibe or vintage European garden look, there are many hat styles to do the job! You can add some florals to make it more romantic or add embroidered texts to make a statement!
There’s just something about these long, sheer, silky gloves that adds that movie star from old b&W movie kinda vibes. Or maybe it is! I will call it the Audrey HepburnIt style. It has an unique glam to it which I think it will look fabulous in wedding portraits!
Those boots are made for dancing! Who says it has to be matching your dress? Rock some cool boots or bright pumps to grab more attentions. Once again, don’t be a drag, be a queen.
