    Classic Noir Wedding Portraits at Chinatown

    The beauty of wedding portraits is that any location can serve as a backdrop to your story, and with an experienced photographer behind the lens, your experience will be complete. In this wedding portrait album, an adventurous and artistic couple explore Chinatown Singapore, discovering some very vintage-esque and quirky spots. Thanks again thegaleria, for reminding us of the beauty of film when done right! Wearing spunky red kicks with their wedding attire, and traditional outfits to contrast the city’s raw and iconic cityscape, this album is testament to the couple’s bold sense of fun and adventure, and will serve as a good reminder of the dreams they are building as…

    Quintessentially Hong Kong

    Inspired by the Hong Kong movie ‘Almost a Love Story’, these bridal portraits featured the old world charm of Hong Kong as the perfect backdrop. As the couple is from Singapore, they used their bridal portrait session as an opportunity to inject a sense of wonder and play into their shoot, while also discovering the little nooks and crannies of the city – from the narrow corridors and steps to the junk boat by the harbour. We love the exposed brick walls and art as well; many thanks to Brian Ho of thegaleria for this set!

    A Gilded, Glamorous Wedding At Tanarimba, Janda Baik

    This juxtaposition of gold and gilded glamour against the lush greenery of nature certainly made for a comfortable yet elegant wedding. Despite the detailed décor, the couple kept things cosy and intimate, infusing much of their personality into their wedding. With simple décor points like white drapery and green vines looping the wedding arch, modern bridesmaids’ dresses, magical hanging lights, and elaborate, gorgeous centrepieces with hanging vines and beads, everything came together perfectly. Many thanks to Brian Ho of thegaleria for capturing this stunning set of photos. Charlotte: “It was really special to have my father walk beside me and give me away to the man I was about to…

    Destination Wedding At Rayavadee, Krabi

    It takes a woman of great character and confidence to put on such a simple dress for her wedding day. There’s a difference between “you look great” and “that’s a great dress”. The celebration was small enough to be personal, and more importantly, they didn’t run out of booze so everyone could party all night long. Another wedding fully photographed in film, Brian Ho of thegaleria did a cool job, so thanks!

    When A Wedding Photographer Weds

    Have you ever wondered what photographers do for their own nuptials if all they see week in, week out are weddings? How do they make their weddings different so it doesn’t feel like just another event? Brian Ho of thegaleria recently tied the knot with Justine, a lawyer by day and second violinist of VOX by night. Brian is one of the pioneers of film photography in Singapore, and his wife Justine is also an avid film photographer with a mean collection of lomo cameras. They wanted their wedding to be a representation of what they love – film photography and handmade stuff. That’s how the idea of the “film…

    What These Wedding Albums Tell Us About The Photographer

    We’re totally sold by these pretty albums, and even though it’s not always the case, it’s also not entirely shallow to think that good products always come with great packaging. These albums all contain three elements: 1) Personalised, handmade details; 2) The photographers use only the best quality materials; 3) Beautiful layouts (only possible when the client doesn’t insist on including too many photos). Read on to find out what you can learn from some of our favourite photographers’ album packaging. We find it hard to believe that photographers who put so much effort into their albums won’t do the same for your shoot. #01 James Simmons Photography, Perth That…

    Qabil is one of Malaysia’s top sporting icons and widely considered to be the best equestrian in the country. These bridal portraits were photographed at just one location – the couple’s sprawling private estate in Selangor.

    Countryside Tranquility

    Film photography has been making a comeback of late, and if you are a fan you will like this set of bridal portraits that was taken in Nagano, Japan. This is thegaleria’s signature style but it is still the photographer, Brian, who has done an impressive job on his maiden trip to Nagano. Most of what you see is original, untouched-up photos, which makes them even more awesome. We are awed.
