M+J: Love is meant to make us glad

Wedding shoot. An ultimate challenge for a photographer. Journey through a day filled with emotions, reactions, feelings and one of a kind moments. Capturing it all takes an enormous dose of stamina, perserverence, dedication and involvement. There comes a moment however, when you feel grossly rewarded for all the effort you put into the work you create, a moment that makes your heart skip a beat because you just captured THE image. The one that defines the day, the season, your style... with Michelle and John, an incredibly edgy, creative, truly rock and roll couple all that artistic satisfaction came just naturally. Working with them has been like a trip to Oak Creek Canyon in the Fall - every click of the shutter brings an image that you want to dwell on, print large and feature on your website. The two part engagement session shoot was far beyond ordinary. It was so good that I was a bit (photographically) nervous about the wedding - because the bar has been set high and the higher the expectations the more difficult task ahead of you. Now, a week after their wedding day I can present this set of images that myself and Mr David Lim captured and selected for your visual enjoyment. Michelle and John, thank you for: the amazing atmosphere and visuals of the Ace Hotel in Manhattan, the unique atmosphere of the Brooklyn library that gave your ceremony an unforgettable flavor, the lights, stage and mood of a night club during your reception at the Knitting Factory but most of all - thanks for being the most laid back, entertaining couple ever!



  1. David! You are AMAZING!! We already miss you!!You completely captured the spirit of our friends, family, and the entire day. We're so so lucky to have found you and we enjoyed every minute of working with you. One day our great grandkids will see our engagement & wedding pics and know that we once rocked. We will forver treasure these memories and no one could have told our story better than you.

  2. love all these light tricks you did at the reception :) but I also like the simplicity of the show of the row of these beer thingies [how do you call them in English?]. and the color palette of both bouquets shots. and the use of a 'school' as a shadow of the groom's party - ingenious!
    and I absolutely love the couple's choice of the ceremony location - it's insane!
    and their choice of a photographer was equally good :)
