It isn't just the photos, it's the memories
We feel that photographing a wedding is an honor and we work extremely hard to make sure that your experience with us begins and ends with a smile, each and every time.
With a creative eye and a bit of genius, our passion for the craft goes beyond simply recording, each photo is a tangible piece of your memories you can hold in your hands and reminisce over again and again.
Having a photographer that clicks with you on a personal level is as important as any other decisions that you make in planning your wedding. He needs to be someone you can trust, whom you know will laugh with you and to capture all those timeless moments you wish to live again.
We'd like to think of ourselves as part of your guest, so we are having a lot of fun too. Afterall, it isn't just the photos, it's the memories.
How do I shoot?
I specialise in what I would describe as a natural, story-telling style of wedding photography. It's those unnoticed moments that make the whole event come into life. The wedding should be about you both, but no one else. Each wedding should has it's own special character and so communication is also an important element of my work.
As for pre wedding photos, my approach is very loose and usually involves some hugging, a few piggy-back rides and a dash of legal trespassing, just enough to get the blood flowing.

Rachel & Cyrille Jul 2012
"One highly recommended wedding photographer is KC Chan, who was used by Bridelicious herself. His photos are candid and unfussy, contemporary and makes everything and everyone look pretty. He’s also not in-your-face, so if you’re the shy type, you and your guests needn’t worry that you’re on camera the whole day."
Bridelicious, Jul 2011
"Thank you so much for today!! You are a real master, so professional in your skills and yet so thoughtful and full of encouraging advice to us too, we had such a great day and it shines through in the photographs! So sorry you are so sunburnt and full of mosquito and random insect bites...obviously nothing could stop you going deep into the grass and lying down at awkward angles on the scorched floor for better photos!!
Hope everything goes well with you and I'm sure all the other couples who love spontaneous and natural snapshots will thankfully discover they need to look no further! The best lies here!"
Gloria & Alan, Aug 2011
"KC, we are most impressed by your dedication, devotion, user friendly approach. Your skills and know how are superb. I reckon that you scored much higher than the other internationally renowned prize-winning wedding photographer that we hired locally in Bali. I have no reservation in recommending you to any couple who cherish their most memorable happiness with photographs of masterpiece."
Dr Lam, Father of Sharon
"First off, and I am sure you receive emails like this after every wedding event, me and my family would love to thank you for all your hard work in helping us treasure such a monumental moment in my family's life. It was a pleasure for us having you as our wedding photographer. Even if you may not believe it, we actually preferred your photography skills over the other photographers used in Bali, everyone in the family said you were definitely the better one, myself included. Hopefully, you still continue to do what you love most and succeed in this field. Maybe in the future I can find you for my wedding lol. "
Ryan, Brother of Sharon
"KC, thank you for joining us at our wedding and all the wonderful photos that you took that day. You did a great job in capturing the defining moments on our big day as well as the different emotions of us and our guests whilst remaining unobtrusive. The end products were candid, heartwarming and tasteful! We love them!! Thanks again!."
Eleanor & Francis
"Thanks so much for these, they are exceptional as expected. It was an amazing day for Kobe and I and I know all our guests also had a fantastic time. We were really pleased with the way it worked having you around on the day and we would most certainly recommend you to anyone. You were very professional and we really felt you understood the relaxed atmosphere of the day, so thank you very much."
Marcel & Kobe
"Thanks so much for the marvelous wedding photos! We love them very much. You have actually turned those rather ordinary places into amazingly impressive scenes. And I have never envisaged taking prewedding photos as relaxing and pleasant as such. I really appreciate your flair and professionalism as a photographer. "
Heronie & Patrick
"All my friends love the photos! Even if some of friends are not in our party, they can feel our happiness throughout the photos. The photos act like a story capture for our big day. Whenever I look at the wedding photos, they remind the happy moment on my wedding day."
Venus & Bruce
"It was almost a coincidence how I leaned about you. Being based in the Philippines, I've let my husband handle most of the arrangements for our civil wedding in HK. Almost a week down when i realized that we still haven't arranged for a photographer for our wedding. After realizing the need to handle the arrangements, I had to do so remotely. I went through tons of websites and found yours and WITH NO EXAGGERATION I was stunned by the pictures you took. Very seldom could one find a photographer that works very well with angles and really captures the emotions of the moment with his pictures. Having had you as our photographer made it easier to go back to the moment and remember how happy and memorable it was. Unlike most photographers who focus more on scenic locations and backdrops , We didn't need any fancy out of town locations but couldn't have been happier with how our pictures turned out. "
Geena & Deepak
"We love our pre-wedding photos! KC really does capture the emotion and romance in our eyes. He loves what he does and is with great talent in capturing the moments that come once in a lifetime. On our wedding day, my family members were impressed by the fact that KC was leaning against the floor just to get the best shot of us in the church. We do appreciate both his talent and sweat."
Hilda & Charles
May I know more about you?
I am more than happy to answer any questions you might have, if you would like to get a grasp of what my photographic style is like, you may also visit my gallery
What is your approach to wedding photography?
I would like to think of myself as the photojournalist of your wedding day, the storyteller of the love story between you and your loved one. I would love my photos to simply show real moments and emotions, by being present to what is happening but not directing it. For post-production, I like to keep the real look and don't use much Photoshop.
What Kind of equipment do you use?
There is something about the orgaic look of film that has always appealed to me. Although I began my professional photography as a digital shooter, I now shoot in a hybrid style with both film and digital cameras. I use Aperture for my digital workflow and I am loving it. For film, I uses Richard Photo Lab from Hollywood, United States.
Do we get a copy of our wedding images on a disc?
I will provide a disc with the photos taken in JPEG format. With the disc, you can make unlimited copies of your images for your personal use.
We would love to have you shooting for our wedding day, how do we book you?
Most people book their wedding photographer well in advance. Do not wait to contact me as soon as possible so we can get the ball rolling.
