Young, beautiful, talented, brilliant, at times quirky, but definitely madly in love.

Saab marries her dream, and Jim calls their wedding day and beyond their masterpiece.

Whatever they call it, their families and friends were witness to their inspiring collaboration, turning a string of bright, deep, powerful notes into a lifetime song.

It’s an honor, not to mention a challenge, to shoot a fellow wedding photographer’s wedding. Despite being Hong Kong locals, Jon and Merryl chose Boracay as the picture perfect backdrop for their beautiful wedding, riddled with inspiring details and bathed with tons of God-given golden sunlight.

Easily one of my most memorable shoots in my favourite island in the world, perhaps in a way like you’ve never seen before.
