I am a Calgary wedding photographer who loves to combine candid/photojournalistic approach and natural posing in my photography.  
 
The emotions; the stolen kiss, the laughter, and the candid tears, not just the pretty posed images. 
 
I strive to constantly better my photography skills, and over time my photographs evolve, but I always aim to tell stories through timeless beautiful and meaningful images.  

My life from birth until now (travels excluded!) has been spread across Asia (Indonesia), Europe (Switzerland), Middle East (Abu Dhabi and Dubai), US (New York), and Canada (Hamilton, Toronto, Montreal, Calgary).  I am happy and proud to call myself a Canadian, and after years of living in various countries, I am currently based in Calgary.  I call Canada, Switzerland, and Indonesia home.  Japan soon? :) There is a piece of  my heart in all four.  Interesting that all 4 countries' flags consist of red and white. 
 
I am passionate about art and culture; I did classical ballet with the Royal Academy of Dancing for over 10 years, performed Indonesian traditional dance at events in Switzerland, and took Japanese traditional dance classes whenever in Japan.  I've done countless solitary travels overseas for over 20 years.  Among my adventures were last-minute trips to London and Paris merely to watch Dame Helen Mirren and David Suchet play or the Paris Opera Ballet at Palais Garnier.  I flew to London in November 2016 to watch Harry Potter's play live! 
 
I believe dreams do come true (one of my wildest dreams was to waltz at a Viennese Ball (my Austrian godmother gave me the bug!).  I wrote it down in my diary back in 2002; and despite all odds, it did come true in 2012, in Montreal!).  

A paradox; I love Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot/Miss Marple and Japanese anime (who cut the onions during Demon Slayer?).  I love classical music (Chopin!) and old songs (Ella Fitzgerald, Laura Fygi, Fuyumi Sakamoto, etc.) 

"The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance."

~ Aristotle
