A wedding photographer since 2001, Louis Loo had the opportunity to meet hundreds of couples with distinct personalities. Such experience has shaped him to be one of the best wedding photographers around the world.

It’s no wonder why we were certainly impressed with his diverse portfolio. He has photographed weddings with interesting themes such as jazz nights and yellow retro parties.

He also likes to explore contemporary themes such as modern culture-inspired weddings like Shanghainese and Peranakan. His interest in the diverse cultures of the world is definitely something worth noting for enthusiasts and couples who want to feature their culture in their wedding.

What caught our eyes most, however, is his casual pre-wedding photos featuring a couple wearing jeans, white shirts, and sneakers. It seems like your normal and unplanned trip-turned-into-a-photoshoot, right?

But we like how his photos were shot in an unfamiliar place. And yet they still induced a lot of nostalgic feelings to outsiders, despite it being a place we’ve never been to.

It almost felt like we shared the treasured memories from the couple. And that’s certainly what we think beautiful wedding shots should be—unique, but familiar.

It’s definitely not the typical pre-wedding shots we see everywhere, but that’s what makes it rightly theirs.

Louis Loo also works on classic themes and photographs other events such as garden weddings, blue rustic weddings, and pre-wedding Paris shots. If you inspire him with your stories, he can definitely give justice to your unique wedding shots ideas too!

The photos turned out great and we have our favorite ones hanging on our walls. If you are after a natural style of photography that captures emotions, don’t look anywhere else. I’m glad we trusted Louis as our wedding photographer.”—Shu Lam, Facebook

Munkeat Photography’s gallery features photographs that radiate strong cinematic vibes. And we are definitely liking his black-and-white photos that look like they came straight out of a 1950s film!

They portray simple but dramatic scenes that evoke feelings close to the ones you get from watching an old romance movie. This is why we think it is definitely perfect for a wedding.

What we like most about Munkeat’s cinematic style, however, is how he captures his subjects in a particular environment—whether it’s an old house terrace, along the beach, in the forest, or overseeing a mountain. He tells stories of growing old together, exploring the world, and looking forward to the future—the things that couples look forward to in a marriage.

The subjects are perfectly captured within the scene and every element in his photos fall on the right places. We also like how he captures the subjects through deep blacks and contrasts which makes his photos look fierce, sophisticated, and eye-catching.

His use of props and elements such as wedding arches, plants, and chairs are very nice touches as well. Having a specialization in digital portraits and shooting in film, Munkeat’s mise en scene is a very remarkable aspect of his style.

We believe that this distinguishes him from other wedding photographers in Kuala Lumpur, and this left an outstanding impression to us and some of his past clients as well.

Pros

  • Very distinct style
  • A master of his own genre
  • Great composition
  • Uses a blend of digital and film 

Cons

  • Limited range of services
  • Can be difficult to schedule

Customer Reviews

Keen eye for details

“Munkeat Photography was our first choice when it came to booking our wedding photographers, and we are incredibly happy with how our wedding photos turned out! Mun Keat is a fantastic photographer, with a keen eye for details. He captured all the right moments of the wedding and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. He knew the best angles for us and made us look really good. We completely trusted Mun Keat and totally enjoyed working with him.”—Daniel and Jade, Testimonials

Friendly and genuine

“Munkeat came to my knowledge through glowing recommendations from my wedding planner. Though initially drawn to the lightness, artistry and timelessness of his shots, it was the actual meeting of him in person that sealed the deal. Munkeat had such an amazing aura, exuding warmth, friendliness and most importantly, genuineness. I felt so comfortable around him and was immediately convinced that he was the photographer I wanted to shoot my special day.”—EE and Stephane, Testimonials

Love at first sight

“It was love at first sight; that was how I fell in love with my husband of 10 years. That’s what I felt about Munkeat’s photos too. I immediately fell in love with his photos when I first saw them. It was at that moment that we decided to choose Munkeat for our 10th anniversary shoot with our daughters. We had so much fun during the shoot and our girls felt so easy with his presence they were so cooperative. You know what people say about taking photos of kids.”—Tim and Ka Bien, Testimonials

As we enter Jenny Sun’s website, we are immediately taken into an interactive page with a vintage motif for a more fun browsing experience. And we’re all for it!

Her wedding shots primarily feature the subtle things on a wedding. We see a wedding gown hung on top of a door, a bouquet, red heels, bust-down shots that focus on the ring, suits, bow ties, leather shoes, cakes, flowers, candles, and lights.

The shots almost look too simple, and there’s not much going on. But we like how they tell the story of a wedding.

Her use of saturation gives focus on the subjects captured without fully isolating them from the scene, such as a red shoe or a yellow flower in a bit of a muddy background. And we think that this is an impressive way of capturing the essence of photographs, especially stills.

We also like how she uses lighting in her photos. They delicately touch the subjects in certain angles, and it makes them look so gentle and graceful.

But our favorite thing about her shots is their touch of blur for focus and fluidity. They show candidness timed perfectly.

Jenny Sun’s technique of capturing candid moments is truly a classic style that will always be timeless. We are, without doubt, impressed with her classic approach to the art of wedding photographs.

You can connect with her on Facebook and Twitter to contact her directly and check out more of her wedding shots.

Pros

  • Elegant and classic style
  • Graceful touch
  • Great stills

Cons

  • Limited range of service
  • Also based in Sydney which could affect availability

Customer Reviews

Knows how to work with light

“Jenny Sun is an amazing wedding photographer – we had her do both our engagement shoots and wedding. The quality of her photos is exactly what we wanted – she really knows how to work with the light to get beautiful shots. Only thing is, she is super super busy so don’t expect your hard copy photos back any time soon – ours took nearly a year to arrive.”—Valerie C., Facebook

Bubbly, friendly, natural, professional

“She has attention to your details, bubbly and friendly personal service, tailoring to your needs and styles, has great skill in capturing moments naturally and professionally.”—Anonymous, Word of Mouth

Like Jenny Sun, Darren Chong likes to capture stills of wedding elements like rings, invitations, gowns, and suits. Our favorite part about his photos is his approach to viewpoints and story-telling.

He takes shots such as the bride looking at a mirror, seeing her own beauty. He portrays how fun preparing for a wedding is, from putting on makeup to dressing up.

He also captures the warmth and completeness of having people beside you. He shows the emotions felt by the couple and the guests all throughout the event.

We are fascinated by how he uses different angles and how he frames the subjects in a scene to tell a story. We think his aesthetics are well-suited to people who prefer simple and delicate shots.

We also like how he plays around with lights and the bokeh effect in some of his photos. The shots are showing a lot of movement, even when they’re technically still images, which is very impressive.

Like any great wedding photographer, Darren Chong perfectly captures all the important moments and emotions in a wedding—but with a touch of perspective and story.

Apart from wedding, pre-wedding, destination wedding, and destination pre-wedding shots, he also offers wedding videography, corporate photography, and corporate videography services. You can connect with him on Facebook and Instagram too.

Pros

  • Wide range of services
  • Mastery on stills
  • Great use of angles

Cons

  • Style is common among wedding photographers

Customer Reviews

Talented professionals

“Daren and his team are really talented and complete professionals. Daren did an absolutely amazing job with our pre wedding shots. The interview we did with him gave him an idea and insight on where and how it should be. He did great choosing the location and style. The actual day photos and videos turn out to be excellent too. Our guests are all happy with the photos that we’ve shared with them. Overall 5-Stars for: Pre wedding, actual day video and photo & photobooth.”—Daxterism Ooi, Facebook

My best decision ever

“Choosing Daren to be our pre-wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we have made and it was a great start to the whole wedding preparation process.  We did a two-day photoshoot in Sydney. Daren was very interactive throughout the shoot, which really helped us to feel more relaxed and the photos turned out to be more natural.  Daren is also very professional and experienced, he guided us on our poses very patiently. Overall, Daren is very passionate with his job and he did not take it as if it was just another task, he really made the two-day experience enjoyable and memorable for us.”—Melvin Wong, Facebook

Paul Kong of Gallerie CK features a gallery of wedding photos shot from famous landmarks across parts of the world. His team has been to Paris, Rome, Venice, Santorini, Amsterdam, New Zealand, London, Tokyo, Korea, Bali, Taiwan, Macau, and Shanghai.

This gave us the impression that Paul Kong has worked with a lot of people from all around the world, each one having unique ideas for their wedding photographs. This makes Paul Kong a very experienced wedding photographer, and we definitely believe that he can make your wedding photo ideas come to life.

Most of his wedding shots depict a rustic ambience with a sundown palette, showing an afternoon scenery. Sunsets can never go wrong and our eyes are certainly caught!

We also like how some of his shots feature symmetry that are captured in buildings and interior design. One of his featured wedding photos is also a mirror shot of a woman.

We think Paul Kong’s interest in symmetry may symbolize the union of a marriage and the similarities a couple may adapt from each other as they live together for the rest of their lives. And we’re in it for the idea!

Pros

  • Wide range of services
  • Good use of symmetry

Cons

  • Not a very distinct style

Customer Reviews

“Amazing moments captured by Paul! Last year, I had my family portrait with my in-law family and a few days ago, I had another family portrait with my parents, siblings, and uncle. We all love the photos so much and we were frustrated because we didn’t know what photos to shortlist for editing because we liked a lot of them! The staff is very friendly and helpful too. Good customer service. Thank you so much. You guys won’t regret to hire him for your photoshoots.”—Wong Suen Yen, Facebook

“I had my family portrait taken by Paul. He is very professional and the staff are very friendly. It’s never easy to take photos with 2-year-old kids, but Paul and his staff were very patient with everything. Thumbs up.”—SooSoo Young, Facebook
