We live in a fast-paced and connected world. To help you share your pictures with family and friends, our packages come with beautifully designed mobile-optimized online galleries and multimedia slideshows.

However, as much as we love new technologies, we believe that great photographs should also live outside the screen. Therefore we work with a few selected vendors who provide us with stunning flush mount albums, archival paper prints, and gorgeous floating wall art. All of it curated by us and made to last for generations.


Many thanks for making our Shanghai trip a sweet memory & now forever a permanent one with all these amazing pictures. We are grateful for having you not just making our ideas happen but managing to capture our honest happy moments.

What’s your style of work?

You could define it as wedding photojournalism. We’re there to tell the story of your wedding day and give our best to capture true emotions and all the memorable moments. Engagement sessions are typically done on location, we can go with spontaneity or we can plan out every detail. In any case – share your vision with us and we will definitely get there.
